One night long ago, a constellation disappeared and fell from the sky in the form of a boy…
Secrets are being kept in the sleepy town of Lakewood Hollow, Colorado. Nothing but pools of blood and dripping words are left where bodies once were, and no one but Calum Wade seems to be worried. Life unfolds in shades of red for Calum, until a mysterious girl named Kate Black at his school and everything changes. Suddenly a dangerous world of dream demons, elemental
enchanters, and blood witches unfurls before Calum. He learns that the stars have forever held his destiny, and that the constellations above are much more than what they seem. As Kate and Calum sink deep into a paranormal war, they realize that an ancient prophecy might hold the answers they seek. But life is not so easy for Calum, and he can feel his heart beat faster whenever Kate is close. Worse, Kate’s blood holds a dark secret even more dangerous than the war between the demons and enchanters. Soon the two find that there are worse things than loving someone you shouldn’t. For Calum and Kate, even love and the fiery power of stars may not be enough to break a curse as dark as the blood that binds their destiny.
A romantic story of true love and dark curses, Light of the Moon will leave you breathless.
I have mixed feelings about this book, but don’t get me wrong, I loved it. I had a hard time getting myself involved in the book, but once I was, I enjoyed it.
It has magnificent writing, and an interesting plot, and I only have two complaints. First off, the different POVs. The book alternates points of view between the two main characters, and several times I read a whole chapter and had no idea which person was narrating it. The POVs felt very similar, and at times it was difficult to differentiate. Secondly, Calum seemed unrealistically calm for being in such a terrifying situation. He experiences many traumatic things through the course of the novel, and yet he seems still seems fairly relaxed.
Those things aside, I thoroughly enjoyed Light of the Moon. It has a very intricate, enjoyable plot, and wonderful character development. Mr. David James has fantastic writing style, and I will be reading his future work. I believe it will interest people of many ages. It is one of those rare books that doesn’t have a restrictive YA feeling to it.
I’m giving Light of the Moon 4 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading
