Low Red Moon
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
Release Date: September 14, 2010
Avery Hood is reeling from the loss of her parents--and the fact that she can't remember what happened to them even though she was there.
She's struggling to adjust to life without them, and to living with her grandmother, when she meets Ben, who isn't like any guy she's ever met before.
It turns out there's a reason why, and Ben's secret may hold the key to Avery finding out what happened to her parents...
But what if that secret changes everything she knows about--and feels for--Ben?
Low Red Moon was an almost heartbreaking tale of grief, love and werewolves. I enjoyed it a lot, but it's not one of my favorites. Maybe it was because I was expecting a lot out of this book, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought.
Poor, poor Avery. She found both her parents murdered in pieces and can't remember what happened that night. Through the book we watch as the mystery unravels. But while Avery is learning dark secrets, she is also falling in love.
Ben was very sweet I thought. He helped Avery as much as he could. Even though Avery suspects him we find out the truth. I knew he was a werewolf from the beggining because of the description, but I kind of wish we had the mystery of discovering what he was.
Low Red Moon moved very quickly. Not that that's always a bad thing, but it would have neen better it it were a little longer. If there were more details it probably would have helped with the flow.
Even though I felt it was too short, I still really enjoyed it. It was a good mystery and I'm looking foward for more of Ivy's work.
