Review: A Blood Moon

A Blood Moon
By: Bitten Twice
ASIN: B0047T7D96

Summary via Author's Website:
Hiding his private life in the public eye, vampire Alexander Macedo, goes to hell and back in a race against time to save the one woman he would die again for and the other he could spend an eternity with. A rogue vampire threatens the balance of power. Bred for strategy but torn between his want for love and his need for companionship, Alex battles to save all he holds dear.

A Blood Moon constantly pushes and pulls through out the entire book which is interesting and keeps us on our toes. Most of the characters are facing life threatening situations or major changes which is both believable and yet almost too fantastic at times.

I really enjoyed the main characters because of the unique way the author melded history into their backgrounds. However, due to the turbulent nature of this book many times the characters turned out to be one dimensional when they could have been so much better.

The best part of this book is the second half when we really start to see what is really going on with the first half. You see in the first section of this book we have many different stories and points of view that it makes this book almost like a short story book. When they finally all come together its quite beautiful.

She has the beginnings of a great book but the constant motion which is enjoyable but at the same time chops the story up so it seems like you have three books in one. I would have liked a little more solidarity in the story but that didn't take away my enjoyment. I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys paranormal or urban fantasy and likes a little twist in the history department. The book gets a high two and I look forward to the next book.

Your book was turbulent and fast paced because it often jumped from one topic to another and very fast so that it was very jarring while reading it.

The characters are good but need a little more work to make them more relatable but as basic stereotypes.
