2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Catty is having a very bad day, and it just gets worse when she is called to the morgue to claim her biological mom’s body. Not only that, she learns that she is the heir to the Secret Scroll, but the only problem is that anyone who goes near it is cursed. Will she be able to figure out the secret behind the scroll and her past?
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 fourth book of the Daughters of the Moon series, it explores the legend behind the phases of the moon – to give hope to the people. It really isn’t as interesting as the other mythology information since I already knew that legend. Oh, well…
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). Also, I like the growth it has for Catty – making her seem a little more mature and showing her past. 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.
For the fourth book, I really loved it because the author begins to unravel the mystery behind Catty’s past. Another interesting thing in this book is the twist the author puts behind Catty’s heritage. Also, I loved the book because the author finally gives Catty a guy to play with, Chris. ;) However, I wish there was a little bit more romance between them. Out of all the guys in this series, Chris is rated my number two, while Stanton is number one.
Anyways, this series and book is pretty good and well written because it gives enough information at a time without making it seem too fast, slow, or not really that boring. Also, it has great descriptions and growth. Any more information would spoil the books. :P
