2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Once a gang member, Jimena has changed her tone after learning about her destiny as a Daughter of the Moon. She is not afraid of anything, but when her deceased boyfriend, Veto, shows up again from the dead, Jimena is afraid what kind of bargain he has made with the Atrox that could cost them their lives.
I decided to do a better review of the Daughters of the Moon series by Lynne Ewing since my first ones weren’t done very well. This book is really a fast read, but since I really didn’t like this one, it took longer than the other two books.
In the third book of the Daughters of the Moon series, it explores the legend behind the goddess, Diana. It really isn’t as interesting as the other two books for mythology information, so meh.
The tone and dialogue reminds me a lot of my teenage years and my high school, so the author did a really good job at writing the book in teenage words and their world. The descriptions were also very well done, and both of these things made the book go a little bit faster than most other young adult books. So, I really like this book from this standpoint. Another thing I liked about this book is the mythology that is incorporated in it. Also, the character growth and their personalities are believable (for a supernatural book). Despite the descriptions, there is very little growth, and it is not as interesting as the first two books. However, it’s better than most books that have a series. :( As the books/series goes on, you get more information about the Daughters of the Moon and the Atrox, which is good because it won’t overload you with information with just one book. The third book is still pretty good, despite the less interesting mythology information, so go ahead and read it. :) I’ll be reading the next book after I read a picture book.
Any more information would spoil the books. :P
