I was asked to review BLOOD MOON written by Tori Minard, so here it is:
I expected a vampire novel based on just the title – BLOOD MOON. Boy was I surprised, it was so much more than I thought. Tori had me from the very beginning when the heroine was searching for a house with character. The longer I read the more involved and more intriguing the plot became. I had trouble putting the book down and heading off to bed in the wee hours of the morning. The only reason I could put it down was, I ended up re-reading the same paragraph over and over. Oh, I don’t know how many times. But first thing in the morning my nose was right back in there reading. That’s my indication of a very well written book.
The details of her descriptions allowed me to picture everything from the setting, to the ghosts, hero and heroine, and of the bad guys. Yet, it didn’t overwhelm the story. I loved the heroine, Eve and could identify with her. The hero changed as I read. Starting out as the personality of the house, when he manifested as a ghost, when I thought he might be a vampire, and his final manifestation into a live-full-blooded Amaki man. Throughout his transformations he was definitely a true hero. Michael fought to protect Eve even when he was a ghost, against a blood thirsty spirit, a killer, and himself. He saw the two marks still bloody on Eve’s neck. And he had just dreamed of making love to her and drinking her blood. Did it really happen? No spoilers here.
Oh and the Amaki’s they’re a fae race, like man, but with magic and superhuman strength, very long lived. I met several in her book and I wouldn’t mind finding an Amaki man of my own.
If I were you I’d put Tori Minard and this book, BLOOD MOON on your must read list. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
Well, I’m off to purchase the rest of her books. Can’t wait to start reading them!
