First, let me say I've not ever gotten into Banks' Vampire Huntress series and have only read a few books by her. This new series is totally different; new theme, characters and worldbuilding. The unique thing about L.A. Banks is her multiracial characters, I understand, and the Crimson Moon characters are no different. They are also wolves.
I really enjoyed t ...more
I’ve heard many good things about L.A Banks and the various series that she has written. Reading the first few chapters I wanted to know what everyone was raving about. I found the characters to be flat, and the writing to be confusing. There was SO much information piled onto the reader that it was overwhelming. As the story progressed I started to like Sasha a little bit more, but for the life of me I couldn’t identify with her at all.
Towards the end o ...more
I usually purchase an entire series because when I enjoy them I prefer to consume them quickly (and not wait to find the next book).
I started reading this with hopeful expectations but had trouble with it. There was too much information being given. I am honestly not a military fiction (or nonfiction) fan and this book is ...more
The entire book was a chaos. There were perspective, place and time changes without any indication or warning, which made it difficult to keep track of the story.

I mean it annoyed me early on, but figured I'd give it a chance.
I feel like I'm missing something in every conversation.
On top of that, Banks just poures information and big words on me that I'm left confused and irritated.
The general idea in the book is about the difference between various werewolves species and specifically about a demon infected kind. The government is trying to create soldiers infected with the demon virus but it’ ...more

The Bad: Info dumping, info dumping, and more interminable dialogue with info dumping. Half way through the book, I was trying to figure out how to restructure t ...more
However, the main reason I stopped reading were the info dumps. They were long, boring and confusing. I think the confusing was mostly because we were in the POV of the main character and the people giving her the info dumps assumed she had a much different background and set of starting data than she d ...more
Publishers who scant on proofreaders would be shot on sight.
All becomes clearer by the middle, and by the end I was cheering the main characters along.
Hooked! Where's the next episode?
