She did make a choice.

This one drops you right in the middle of the action, unlike several others. Jimena is the first to make her choice, and this ends on a pretty happy note.
Wonder what happens when there is only one Daughter left?

The Choice actually throws you right into the plot. Lynne Ewing actually does something different and doesn't automatically tell you what's going on - so you learn as you go. It's the type of book that I love. And although Jimena has never been one of my favorite Daughters, I find I like her a lot more in this one than I have the others.

I love how the author is using more mythology, but I'm still not a fan of how the final bad guy is battled. The fight is always rushed and then there's some ran

Eh. I got it, but at the same time I didn't. I hated to see Jimena make her choice, but I like the choice she made and I'm glad that we kind of knows what happens once at least one of the 2 choices are made. I feel like I'm just flying through these books now just to see what happens at the end. I'm enjoying them, but not as much as I would have thought with the last few books. I wondering if I should just skip Maggie's book all together, but I feel like maybe there might be something important ...more

It was annoying how many 'new' things they were trying to cram into this book...its as if the author knew that the series was failing and just had to throw everything but the kitchen sink and poorly tie it all up in a sloppy bow...Also Jimena is my least favorite sister. So theres that.

This was a decent enough story. I liked both the main character and all the action.

I’m dedicated to finishing this series this year.

I think it's total bullshit that these girls basically get two years to master their abilities and to save everyone from the Atrox only to have to have it all taken away whether they choose to continue life without their abilities or memories of what they once were or by transcending into some unknown force - basically dyi

I read this over a week ago I think... I don't know why it took me so long to get to writing this review.

This book focuses on Jimena. I really liked it in that it was pretty action packed, and the playing with time was pretty fun. For the first time, the ending of the book threw me for a loop and has me highly anticipating the next book to see what happens.

And now for the venting portion...
These girls are so easily distracted, especially by boys. It's really annoying. They are in the middle of l

In this book, Jimena is thrown back in time to try and save the Daughters of the moon from being swallowed up by the Atrox which appears in plain sight on the day the seven sisters constellation and the moon align, which happens to mark the end of the world. However, when she was in the past, she gets falsly accused of dealing drugs and sent to youth camp. In camp, she meets three beautiful girls who turn out to be evil dragon nymphs disguised as teen girls. Jimena escapes, but she has a premont ...more

It was a matter of choice. Jimena will have to decide on what she wants on her 17th birthday. But before she can even choose what she wants, she have to save her friends from the Atrox's wrath. It was good though there were parts that I got bored with it. I'm not really a fan of Jimena's character. Haha.

My best friend got me hooked on DOTM and I loved them all so far!This one is a really shock! I couldn't believe the ending! It starts off by Jimena coming from the present to change the future while she's in the past. Confusing I know but you have to read it anyway! I read it in like a day and I'm still in shock! If you're a fan of DOTM, you HAVE to read this! The ending will blow you away!

This one was probably my favorite up until the end .. it ends good and bad at the same time . I can't believe she actually lost her memory I thought the author would have fixed it to where that didn't happen somehow . I think it'll cause problems later on where all of them will know except her . She got the stay with Collin and everyone though so that's good . This one was great . (:

this book was okay. even though it took me a little longer to finish the book compared to others but i loved the adrenaline of the plot. how she has to risk her life to save her friends lives. i also really liked how she got back to her old gang and it just added more "nail biting" action. but once again a good book to the Daughters of The Moon series.
