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.
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.

prize? A woman's soul.
