Modern-day London.The city of dark streets and mysterious happenings...And also the home of the half-werewolf assassin, Gold. If anything goes bump in the night, then it would definitely be this sugar obsessed, mask-wearing, hitman. He has a flare for the occult and an ear for classical music, but by day, the mortals know him as that 'sweet young baker that makes those ...more

Many thanks to NetGalley and Cameron Publicity & Marketing Ltd. for providing me with this copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was a tough one to rate...
I wish I knew when/if this series will continue, because I’m left with so many questions, and a feeling of having read something super bloated, but ultimately hollow. What I’m trying to say is this book is the literary equivalent of a balloon— a blood red one with an angry face drawn on it.

There was an issue with the pacing in this

A solid start to a promising series that embraces the supernatural side of gritty crime drama. A fast-paced game of cat and mouse ensues between a werewolf hybrid serial killer and the rookie detective determined to bring his sister's killer to justice. Gold makes for a compelling protagonist in that he is as cunning as he is depraved - a sadistic cold, blooded killer that is hard to root for. The magic system involves blood magic and rune working interwoven into the plot in a way that is unique ...more

The Moon Eater: Gold Book One by I.M.Bones is a fast-paced, horror, blood-curdling novel for young adult. With a modern-day penny dreadful vibe, it is something that is fun and uniquely dark.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC.

This book is perfect for those who love diabolical, sarcastic villains and crime drama.

Curtis has a mission to find the infamous serial killer, Gold, who has been terrorizing London. Gold is a demon/creature with magical occult powers who by day is known as Silas, a normal 18 year old who runs his own very successful bakery. What no one knows is that Silas/Gold prefers blood to other food and has missions of his own. The book follows both as

I give this book 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.

Well, where to start? I don’t normally read crime novels but the supernatural element of this book drew me in and I’m glad i gave it a chance! The novels centres around two characters. Silas/Gold, the werewolf assassin with a lot of bloodlust and Curtis, a young(ish) detective who is trying to solve his sister’s murder.

I really liked Gold most of the time. I found his character interesting and I hope that later novels explore how he became the way he

This was a pretty cool ya crime drama/murder mystery. The characters were different and interesting, though Curtis was a bit of a bore. I really enjoyed Gold, though. The family drama on both sides was an interesting dynamic. We had Curtis, a cop investigating the murder of his cop sister. And then we have Gold, the half wolf, and his weird family stuff.
There were some parts of this book that dragged on unnecessarily and that threw me off, but all in all, this was a really fun book!

This book was a little bit crime a little bit paranormal but overall a quick good read. I’m not normally a wolf kind of girl but the detective angle was quite good.

The only reason I wouldn’t give five stars is though the paranormal aspects were good, the human side was a little dragging. Some of the dialog went on for ages... but overall I’d recommend giving it a try.

Thank you. Note, I received an ARC In Exchange for an honest review.

A spirited debut featuring a seemingly innocent baker of delicious cupcakes and a bloodthirsty psychotic monster driven by demons! Add to this, a police procedural setting, a tragic sibling taking on an investigation close to home and some brutal fight scenes between super-powered monsters.

I. M. Bones first is saturated in bloody encounters and written from the perspective of both the hunter and the hunted..although perhaps those descriptions are interchangeable.

A great horror, thriller, supernatural YA read, full of great characters, I loved the brothers so much and they kept me going when the story lagged a bit. An entertaining read. Needs a little work and could be even better.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion
