Nineteen years ago…

...a mother and her baby died during childbirth.

But two minutes later, that baby CAME BACK TO LIFE.

A miracle, according to everyone involved...

However, that child grew up to hate her life because it’s been nothing but a trip through hell.

Yes, you guessed it. I’m that child, Ruby Saunders.

The truth is, at birth my fate was sealed. I was saved by a God, ch

It may sound harsh but I wish I’d skipped this series like I originally intended. But after enjoying The Bloodmoon Wars (after an albeit bumpy start) I turned to this while waiting for the next book. I say this because I now know how it ends.

This series can be summed up in one word...okay.
It’s nothing I’ll ever re-read or even really remember but it wasn’t all bad.

I mentioned in one of my earlier reviews that these 5 novellas would in my opinion have been better as just one book. There’s a lot o

Luna Chosen 5

“A god would not give up their power for no reason, not without payment of some sort. What price would I have to pay for the privilege of living?” - Ruby

In the previous instalment, the dark shadow made himself known to Ruby who was shocked to learn that not only was he her warlock father Malcolm, but that Lovette was her mother. With Malcolm’s help, Ruby saw a vision from the past detailing how her mother had appealed to the Goddess to take her life in her daughters stead after Rub

Paranormal yes, romance nope

There was very little romance in this book for Fated mates, I mean omg they kissed several times. And, a book that promises 2 Alphas and one heroine failed miserably in that regard. Even in the end after all the drama, we get 2 yrs in the future with her giving birth. Must have been miracle conception cause one Alpha now travels and still no sex but the kids look like all three of them. If they had advertised the entire book series as a supernatural war with vamps, hu

Great ending

This is the final in the series and wow. Ruby is still trying to figure out her powers, how to take down the vampires, and survive through it all. So much loss, death, and destruction but sometimes it’s what’s needed to survive. This was an epic finish to Ruby’s tale and I loved every minute of it.

Sara Snow!!

Honestly this book gave me anxiety! My heart broke four times!!! This is definitely not the regular wolf shifter I’m use to!! When Natalie died I felt heartbroken, than Axel died during the battle and my heart broke again!!! I wanted to put down the book so bad, I didn’t want to finish anymore.. In the beginning I didn’t like Axel at all but I fell in love with his character, so to read that he dies was too much for me, I felt sick!! When all that happened, I’m thinking that’s it noth

Bummed I wasted so much time..

This series just unraveled. The blurb for this series made Ruby having two mates seem so epic and the focal point of the story. When in reality I forgot Xavier and Axel were even her mates.

The ending was tied up so quickly and without any explanation it just came off as lazy.

Add that to the fact that I was unaware this was a young adult story, I was not a fan.

I might read something else from this author.. but I doubt it.

Ruby purpose is finally revealed… and it’s time to pay her dues

„Luna Chosen“ by Sara Snow brings to an end Ruby’s story in the “Luna Rising Series”. This is a bitter-sweet book, on the one hand we are happy to finally find out how the story ends, and on the other…. it really ends!

Ruby’s fate was sealed at birth, exactly two minutes after her stillbirth, when she miraculous came back to life, only to struggle through life without knowledge of her real purpose. Now her father has finally revealed

Read it instead of listening to it... unless you have listened to the 4 other books.

I was having a hard time getting into this book. She figures out who her Mother and Father are, but she is left with so many unanswered questions. Her powers continue to grow and she finds out the reason for that, but it just goes from one fight to the next. It doesn't feel like the connections between her mates and her are getting the attention they need. And once she gets to the part of actually letting them kn

Luna Rising Series is definitely a must read..IT'S A WONDERFUL, AND AMAZING SERIES !!

Sara Snow is a phenomenal author, and here writing is a gift to us all.. Start with book in the series and you'll be hooked. This is last book in the Luna Rising Series, so you won't have to on for the next book to come out like I did, so you can devour each new book as you finish the last one read. Your going to call in love with these characters, I love a strong female lead, and her two mates are wonderful too

I wouldn't really call this romance...

I'm more of an RH reader, but I'll read pretty much anything paranormal.

I was intrigued by this series. MFM and how the two alphas weren't really interested in her as a mate.


I'm frustrated, to be honest. No romance, no steam. The FMC kissed her mates like twice. Very... exciting.

Very YA for me when the characters are all older, 20+.

The last book was longer than the first four but didn't really tie anything up for me. I have more questions t

4 stars for Luna Chosen by Sara Snow. This is the fifth and final book in the Luna Rising series. “In war, control isn’t the most important thing. In war, we have to break ourselves free from the restrictions of doubt that could hold us back. We have to do what needs to be done because our opponents will do anything to win.” I will say this is different from other shifter romance, it was a little light on the romance though. The book was still truly enjoyable. A lot of things happened in this bo ...more

Amazing but missing something...

This serious has been an amazing read honestly I felt like I was apart of the story and could imagine it all happening. I just felt however, the relationship of Ruby, Axel, and Xavier could have been developed a bit more. For example every time she was upset they didn't go and check on her and most of the time they would just stare at each other, as well as the ending it felt rushed and again the reunion to me felt stiff it could have ended a lot better if the rel

Luna Chosen (Luna Rising #5)

All the answers are finally revealed. Ruby fights her fate & argues for an independent life, finally. She wants a life that hasn't been manipulated after the war, if they win and survive it.🙏 Be warned though, because not everyone survives, there is heartache ahead.💔

I don't think I'll be reading anymore books by this author. They're probably too YA for my age.🙈 This was a reasonably good series though.😁🌟

Nice ending

I enjoyed this series. I did not like the adult language that got progressively worse as the series went on though. I enjoyed the action and conflict Ruby and her group was faced with. I also liked that the books were free of sex scenes. There were kisses, but they were tame and tastefully done. This series turned into more than I anticipated. I enjoyed the characters and the writing. This story is told in multiple povs. It is easy to follow and easy to be sucked in to this world. The

Good but a bit confusing

I just binge-read all the books in order. The story was exciting but there were inconsistencies and there seemed to be some plot omissions. The physical description of Xavier changes between books 1 and 5. Also, the werewolf sacrifice that ended the last war is never really explained. The background story is a poisoning in the first book, and all that has changed by the 4th book. But I enjoyed the characters and the plot. A good editor would find and fix the problems.

The final confrontation with the vampires was coming. Natalie is killed. Ruby is taken by one of the Generals to the vampire queen. Axel dies and Ruby gives the goddess control. The goddess kills the vampire queen ,and Ruby dies, in the process. Axel and Ruby return 6 months later, walking out of the forest as wolves. Axel is appointed to the council, and Ruby has twins. Awesome series !!!

I binge read the series one book after the other as couldn't put any of the books down. I cried, I laughed, I growled and thoroughly enjoyed every word on the page (despite a need for proof readers as there were errors throughout)!! This is the first series I've read but already downloaded the academy boxset! I will wait to read the prequel series when they're all published so I can binge read!!

Some spoilers

This book was depressing. I understand there's a war going on but there are supposed to be light moments to break up the darkness. I could count those moments and most of them happened in the last chapter the others can be counted on one hand. If not for the last chapter I would have rated it a two. I'm glad I read it to see how it ended but now I have to read something funny.

Good read

I have been looking for a new series to dive into after the finale of the Fever series from KMM. I've never read a werewolf/paranormal romance book series before, so I gave these a try. They are good. As you read and the characters develop/grow you become attached. There were twists and turns I didn't see coming. I read all 5 books in 2 days, and I will be reading more of her books.

I could not put this series down…..

It took less than a weeks time to finish this series. Every moment I had between working, taking care the family I read. Through the night waking up ready for a new chapter. I cried, laughed, got angry and overjoyed. Sometimes it was slow but once it picked up it was non stop. The story was well put together just wished a little more at the end but overall awesome.

Good ending to the series

I can't honestly say that this was an amazing series. It was ok. A few grammatical errors throughout but nothing that detracted from the story. It was cute, and clean, so suitable for the younger crowd. Had a nice storyline and characters, with love, and heartbreak and fights and magic. A bit of everything packaged and tied up with a with a nice bow at the end.

This is a brilliant read.
Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start.
Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable.
Great suspense and action with wonderful world building.
Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.
Recommend reading.

I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

Loved this series!

While I was a bit skeptical when this series started due to some lackluster writing, I have to admit the author made me eat my words! I was drawn into this series so hard! Not only did the story and the characters draw me in but the writing improved immensely! I’m so sad this series is over, but you can bet I’m going to start the prequel series!

Good Not Great

This book is the culmination of five novellas that should have just been one book. I wish the story had been more evenly paced. I felt like the ending was rushed, whereas the beginning was slow. There wasn't enough romance or heat. She has two mates, but there is no mating.

Overall though it's a good story, and worth the read.

O M G! That ending!

Not gonna lie I thought I was going to have to curse the author for the way things looked like they were ending. I was very surprised and happy to see how things ended. Good job!

I still think all these books could have been one boon or maybe split into 2 not 5 but it’s still a good series.

DNF this book

Got disappointed in the plot and skipped to the last chapter (I know that’s a no-no). This series ended the way I was afraid it would. I was not interested in the two mates for Luna theme so did not enjoy the end.
