Ties to The Blood Moon - Robin P Waldrop Book Review



Genevieve is a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt in Alaska after the death of her mother. Soon after her arrival she learns the things she was raised to believe only existed in fairytales are in fact a big part of her history. When it gets to be too much she seeks refuge in the arms of her new boyfriend, William, only to find out he's not who she thought he was either.


My Thoughts.


Ties to the Blood Moon is a well delivered and intriguing storyline - a new spin on the normal werewolf  - vampire tale and certainly kept me interested from beginning to end. It’s filled with lots of action, betrayal, romance, and lots of kick arse scenes. Anyone who enjoys a paranormal read will definably enjoy this story.
The characters are well defined and likeable - the fighting and action scenes vivid and well described. Gen was a very likeable character and grew into her new found life at an acceptable rate. Robin has slowly eased Gen into this not wham bam thank you mam and she is tough as nails ** lol. **
The characters are certainly likeable - all well developed and introduced throughout the story, each and every one having their place within the story. I loved Jo - I would have picked him but William was also a hotty.. Such a hard choice lol.. I really enjoyed the werewolf traits put forth in this story and of course being a vampire lover I enjoyed all those aspects to !!!
I did see slight resemblences to Twilight during this read, certain flits here and there but this did not deter me at all from liking the story. It did contain a story of its own.

Robin has taken us on a rollercoaster ride in this story - it’s filled with twists and turns at every corner keeping the reader guessing through the entire read. When we think we have worked out what will happen next Robin has thrown us in a completely different direction.
The dialogue was well put forth with a great storyline to boot. I will certainly be looking for more of Robins work in the near future.


4/5
