Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable ‘illness’ and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from.
As unspeakable secrets unfold all around Adria, impossible choices become hers to bear. Ultimately, no matter what path she takes, her life and the lives of those she loves will be in peril. As she learns about the werewolf world she also learns why her place in it will change the destinies of many.”
Now this, ladies and gentlemen is one heck of a book! I wasn’t even half way through and I sent it down to write to the author asking for the second book!
What I loved most about this story is the plot. It’s HOTT! It’s puts the A in WESOME. It’s everything I wanted in a plot. Fast-paced, action-packed and loaded with secrets! I enjoyed that the move moved with every chapter. The reader is entranced from start to finish in every way possible. I just can’t believe how I could have missed the book! I so wished I could have read it sooner.
Let’s talk about the characters. First off, HOT GUYS! That’s what we want ladies. Some hot, dark, mysterious guys that catches their every movement. I loved their eyes, their alpha-male tendencies as well as their love. It so freaking awesome. Once in Adria shoes, I admit, I be drawn to these guys too. There is no way I wouldn’t be!
Now, the love interest for me is good, but I wanted a bit more. I felt like the love interest moved fast with no really good dialogue between them. You know what I mean? One minute their drawn to each to other and the next, their in love. For me, it would have been better had their been more flirting and less avoiding. Still, I enjoyed the love interest.
The Mayfair Moon is an dynamic story! Built around a dark history with a brewing war, there is no way you can’t be drawn to this. The plot is what makes this book. Gripping and amazing, The Mayfair Moon delivers awesomeness on a silver platter!
I give it 5 BITES!
