Book Review: Low Red Moon


Today I shall review a book titled Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin. It is her paranormal debut novel.

Here is the description of the book:

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.Part murder mystery, part grief narrative, and part heart-stopping, headlong romance, Low Red Moon is a must-read for teen paranormal fans. As breathless as Twilight and as spooky as Shiver, this is a book to be devoured in one sitting—by an acclaimed YA author making her paranormal debut under the pseudonym Ivy Devlin.

My review:
The book had so many flaws. There was a problem in scenes transitions. I mean, I was confused when she was in the present, when she was in a dream or when she was in the past. I just didn’t get it.

The loveship between her and Ben was so fast. Usually love doesn’t come in first sight and when it does we don’t open up from the first few chapters. Avery was so smart. She guessed it all. Just because Ben had silver eyes, that meant that he was a werewolf. There was no point in having a werewolf in the first place. And if I knew that someone was a werewolf, I would freak out. There was no freaking out!!!

Basically this book was missing so many aspects to make it a great book. However, the writing was really good. It was the only reason why I read this book from the beginning to the end. This beautiful writing needs a better story.

The cover was beautiful. A color that you hardly find on book covers. Shinny read. Beautiful.

Check out this amazing trailer.
