2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Vanessa Cleveland has always want to be like other teenage girls, especially the part of dating and kissing boys without disappearing in front of them. So, what is she going to do when she starts dating Michael Saratoga? And to make matters worse someone has been following her. Has someone finally found out about her secret?
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. I finished it in about three days. ;)
Anyways, the book starts out great since it explains about the legend of Selene and how the daughters of the moon came to be, but it doesn’t go into that much detail about it. Also, there are 13 books in this series, so more information about the Daughters of the Moon and the Atrox will show up as the books progress, which is a good thing because it isn’t cramped all into one book
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). I can’t wait until I re-read the next book in this series.
The plot isn’t that much different from other supernatural books or shows since it is basically teenage girls fighting evil, which might remind some people of Sailor Moon and several other anime. That might be way I like it since it kind of reminds me of most of the anime I watch. Oh, well, I like that and mythology so it was perfect book for me.
