Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

It's October, month of the supernatural and spooky, crawling with monsters, mayhem, and magic.
And today... werewolves.

A Guest Review by NINJA READER.

Her parents are dead. She can't remember what happened. And now she's in love with the most dangerous creature in the forest.

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver-- deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together.

Then Avery meets the new boy in school-- Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. Ben is a werewolf, but Avery trusts him-- at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash an inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.

The Mini Review:
by Ninja Reader

Overall, this book was very entertaining. The murder mystery aspect was intriguing and surprising. The author captured the small town atmosphere very well, and the way the characters and situations meshed with the setting was great. The characters were authentic and real... but then the werewolf showed up, and the book turned into the same thing we've read millions of times. In this case, the story would have been the better without the clich├ęd supernatural problems distracting from a well written small town murder mystery. It's a short and sweet book, thrilling, supernatural and romantic, despite some overplayed scenarios.

  1. I liked this one, but had a few issues-- I had the ARC so they may be ironed out. I thought relationship came out of nowhere!
