Blood Moon Review:
God!! That was an absolutely amazing novel! It was not the conclusion to the series but Harvey wrote it as if it was such. Blood Moon was much darker than any of her other novels. It doesn't focus on any single species or clan, focusing just on Solange's life now that she is possessed. This makes the book so much more darker because there isn't as much humor or romance either. It just focuses on the struggles and ends on a very heartbreaking cliff hanger that made everyone dread the year long wait for the next book to come out. Blood moon is much more dire as the stakes are raised and every chapter is more heart pounding than the last.
The POVs are Lucy, Nicholas and Solange. We get the Drake Chronicles' favorite couple but unfortunately not everything is happy in their world. We realize that their are people that have been hiding in the shadows, that have been pulling the strings from the very beginnings. This ties in with Solange's story. Now I know most people would have probably hated her, but you also do have to understand her side of the view. She was possessed and the influences of new friends and human blood proved to strong for her. Luckily, she managed to hold onto her strength on the inside and is trying to fight for her freedom, so she hasn't fallen completely in my eyes. We all are hoping she redeems herself in the next and last installment.
You use each Drake brother's love stories come in handy now. The Drake family has powerful allies that can help to heal Solange and to fight off the impending war because of Solange's actions. And we get some more inner details within the Drake family. The stress of what is really happening and how they are dealing with it. Moreover, you see the prophecy come into play! The end of Helena's rule. And you get to see the overlapping story lines of several other characters, meshing together for the end of the series.
The ending was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! And I'm not kidding about that. It left you a a huge cliffhanger and the emotions that the characters felt reflected onto you. You felt their loss, determination and anxiety of their future. Now we just have to buckle in for the Blood Prophecy which will be the epic conclusion that Alyxandra has been working for.
