As a fan of both the vampire and werewolf horror categories I have to say that BLOOD MOON was a very refreshing alternative to the popular take on vamp/wolf relations. Far too many times we have seen the werewolves used in subservient capacities. This was NOT the case. The werewolves in this novel are ferocious, clever, calculating creatures. Their personalities practically smack of wolf-like tendencies even in their human forms.

Conri and Saoirse’s romance spans through time. They have an ease with one another that extends itself beyond comfort. She’s quite obviously his PARTNER in all things. Loved it. Mike caught Bentley at a particularly low point in her life and watching them transform one another emotionally is hard, especially as the reader when you know that their romance is headed into choppy water toward the end.

Though my favorite wolf of all was Savannah King. I hope to learn more about her even if its in a short story unrelated to the plot of the next novel.

The vampires seemed to run the gamut as far as temperament was concerned. Some were laid back, others were downright maniacal, and a few easily fell right in between. If I was FORCED to pick a favorite vampire of all in this novel It would be a tie between Kael and Bellamy it was interesting watching them become closer, and I absolutely loved their fight scene.

I don’t want to give TOO much away, but the epilogue just ruined me. I am dying to know more about the character it centers around and what it will mean for both the weres and vamps!

I started this book, initially, with an open mind, honestly curious as to what the story would encompass, expectations somewhat low for an initial outing. I’m delighted to say that they should have been higher. Exceptional read. It uses many of the common tropes of the vampire/werewolf genre in YA fiction without succombing to the temptation of being derivative, while thankfully, expanding the genre with additions to the traits of each creature type. The characters are clearly defined and fleshed out, giving a vivid delineation between each, aswell as making most, when appropriate, sympathetic and understandable in their motivations. The love story at the center seems organic to the narrative, while complementing the tension of the overarching horror at it’s core. While there are moments of melodrama, they’re short-lived and understood as a necessary evil in order to move the story forward. This most definitely, despite the given of the star-crossed male and female leads overcoming the odds in pursuit if their love, is NOT, “Twilight.” Equal parts, “Near Dark,” “Let The Right One In,” “Wolfen,” and, “Blade,” there is Gore, intrigue, action, SEX and twists galore to be found and I for one cannot wait to see what the future holds for the Blood Moon Pack. Well done.
