4.5 Stars

After the shocking cliff-hanger in Bleeding Hearts, Lucy, Kieran and Solange deal with the aftermath of Solange feeding off a human. Not only that, but with the Blood Moon just around the corner, all the Drake’s are on high alert and are forced to go into a two week lock down, which means – no leaving the safety nets. Sounds easy? Guess again! With the furies arrival and Solange’s struggles with blood lust, it’s about to get a whole load more dangerous in Violet Hills.

I loved it, I just loved it! Blood Moon is everything I expected it to be and more, and it sure is one hell of a shocking ride. From the very first page I was literally a bundle of nerves because I could not believe the shocking and fantastic way that Alyxandra Harvey has taken this series. It’s become so unpredictable and I can never guess what to expect next.

The story this time around was full of action with amazing and witty scene's but was a little different from the previous books. Before we’ve always seen a member of the Drake family finding love but in Blood Moon, this didn’t happen. There is still good romance to the story, especially with characters like Nicolas and Lucy – who are so, so cute but, I can’t help ask when will the other brothers; Duncan, Sebastian & Marcus find love? I’d really like to see their stories and get to know them as characters better.

The book alternates between Lucy, Solange and Nicholas and we get a small chapter from Kieran too and I really loved it. Their all my favourite characters and I enjoy how all the other characters are involved too. Solange’s character goes through a massive change and I was utterly frustrated with the storyline but in such a good way. I’m telling you now – you won’t believe what happens. And that cliff-hanger...ahhh! If you thought the one from Bleeding Hearts was bad, wait till you read this, it's a jaw dropper!

Overall, now were on book five in this series and it's still going strong as ever. It’s one of my favourite ones and I can’t wait to see what comes next with book 6.

Thank you to Bloomsbury UK for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
