Book Review: Dark Moon

                Today's review is on Dark Moon by Maggie Tideswell

I have decided that I'm a big fan of short chapters. It makes it easier to put the book down for a few minutes and pick it up again without feeling guilty. However, I have a three issues.

First of all, the beginning was a bit confusing and I had trouble keeping everyone straight. I would have liked it more if it didn't leave me feeling rushed. Secondly, there were a lot of mistakes throughout the book that should have been corrected during the editing phase. And finally, the ending was just a bit more abrupt for my taste. There was no cliffhanger or happily ever after. But no matter how much these issues annoyed me, I have to say that I really enjoyed it.

Once you get passed the first few chapters the story begins to unfold and you begin to get entranced by the battle between good and evil, and you can't help but to fall in love with the handsome hero.

Storm Fenton seems to have it all. She's beautiful, successful, and has a very hot boyfriend. But things aren't always as they seem, especially when it comes to Trevor Heardt. Unknown to Storm, Trevor is a powerful Witch.

Though Storm and Trevor have been together for a year, there's no passion in the relationship. In fact, Storm is actually a bit confused as to what his feeling for her really are. After all, being together for that long and not getting past first base? Something needs to be done about that so Storm devises a plan to get him to propose to her.

Then, while sunbathing on a secluded beach one day Storm meets Jarred Walters, a breathtakingly handsome Navy Captain. the attraction is instant and Storm experiences a passion she has never felt, not to mention the best mind blowing sex. Though she thinks that she will never see him again, Jarred can't get her out of his head or out of his heart. And when he finds out that she is carrying his child he loves her all the more.

But now Storm is ruined. Trevor needed her pure for the ritual. The ritual that will give him more power, and he'll do anything to get it. Even if it means hurting and killing others.

I'm a sucker for a good love story so I was captivated by the amount of love Jarred had for Storm. How he pursued her relentlessly. And when he cried, I was a gonner.

I hope that there is a second book or a revision to the ending of this one. I need to know if Storm and Jarred get the baby they want. I need to actually read that they will live the dream.
