(Summary Thanks to Goodreads)
Moonlight was a novel that I have heard a lot about for a while, not all good so I had some hesitation in picking up this novel. I thought I would give it a try. I was very surprised on how this book captivated me, had me wanting more. Moonlight is the first in the Dark Guardian series. Which after this book I am proud to say I want more and actually bought the rest of the series once completing Moonlight. I have never read any of Rachel Hawthorne books before this one and I was very surprised how she hit all the right note in writing a unique paranormal plot.
I found the characters in this novel very well thought out and very easy to understand while still being mysterious. I'm not a big fan of werewolves I dunno why, but my friend and some family are very team werewolves when it comes to reading paranormal. After Moonlight I think I might look into more novels involving Werewolves (any good recommendation?). Anyways we will start off with Kayla poor, poor Kayla who has had a very unfortunate past, because of that past she is know in the middle of the forest. Kayla is very out there (personal information wise), but yet distant and mystery to her. Lucas at first I thought he was a stalker, and a bit creepy, might I add. Lucas does then become my book crush for this novel, and no other man in this book wins that little. Mason, I dunno I get bad feelings that all I can say, and Kayla maybe be right about him being the safer option (or is she:). Lindsey is awesome and reminds me of my friend Linds. I love how this book kind of introduces us to what happens after Moonlight. Evil in this book is another kind of evil no the typical evil kill take over the world good against bad (somewhat) this book touches on other issues.
This book overall was a good read I really enjoyed it. Somethings I disliked were there were some transition that had me a bit confused nothing major. The beginning of this book took a while to actually get in to. So when you do start stick with it, because the best part of the book is coming soon. I like the cover to this novel. Rachel Hawthrone did all the right things in this plot. So if your looking for a quick and great read be sure to pick this book up. Can't wait to see Lindsey's point of view.
My Blurb for this Novel: "Quick, addictive, mysterious new touch to werewolf young adult novels with a bite".
