In Blood on the Moon, Faith Reynolds and her best friend Derek have started their first year of college in Colorado. There's a lot of tension in their friendship because Derek wants to be more than friends. Faith however has gone down that road with him before and wants to remain friends. It isn't long before Faith meets the mysterious and moody Lucas. She's not at all enthusiastic about having classes with him or getting to know him because of his personality and some stories she's heard. Lucas also has no interest in getting to know her either. However, they are thrown together on a class project and their lives only become further entagled from there.
I really enjoyed reading Blood on the Moon. It's just the right book to cuddle up to a lazy weekend and get lost in. I felt like the writing and pacing were great. Things started off slow, but once I got a few chapters in I couldn't put this book down. I don't want to give too much away in terms of the plot because I feel like that's the books biggest strength. As a reader, I was constantly guessing in terms of what I thought would happen next. Sometimes I was right, sometimes I was wrong, but I loved that the story held my attention and I wasn't sure what would happen next. I enjoyed all of the main characters. I thought they were very interesting and realistic. I particularly enjoyed the circumstances between Derek, Faith, and Lucas because there is so much potential there and I'm anxious to see what happens next. Annnnnnnnnnnd
What an ending! Seriously, it was a great way to end things, but I so need to know what happens. All in all, Blood on the Moon is a great mix of supernatural elements, mystery, and romance. The writing is also really good.
