Blood Moon by Alyxandra Harvey

Title: Blood Moon
Author: Alyxandra Harvey
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Published: July 2012
ISBN: 978 14088 31908

Rating: 4.5/5

The cover reflects the title and storyline beautifully with its blood red moon and bats hovering nearby.

I’ve enjoyed each and every book I’ve read by Alyxandra Harvey, and this one is no exception.  I could have kept reading, but too soon it came to the end of the book and once again I’m left wanting more as I’m on the edge of my seat!

Lucy shows her true friendship with Solange and Solange finds out more about the prophecy surrounding her which then dictates some of her actions.  Solange becomes impulsive and out of control as she is over taken by a mysterious voice in her head who gains control of her body.  Nicholas has to choose between his sibling and his girlfriend.  Some parts of this don’t seem too clear and I came away with a sense of not knowing what (or rather who) had happened to Solange.  It is still packed with butt kicking action.  My favourite character in this is Lucy, who must make some very quick and hard decisions in situations.  Another must read :)

Book synopsis:
When the vampire tribes convene for the rare Blood Moon ceremonies, Solange’s fight with her feral nature, a mysterious stranger, family secrets and forbidden magic put all of the Drakes in danger.
And when Nicholas Drake is torn between saving his little sister, Solange, or his girlfriend Lucy, who will he choose?
