2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
When Tiana wakes up one day, she finds that all of her memories are missing, including who and where she is. However, the only clue she has is a note, in her own handwriting, to the police that someone is trying to kill her. She then finds out that she isn’t like other people – she has the gift to move things with her mind. But when the Daughters of the Moon notice her, will she discover she is apart of a greater destiny?
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 books.
Like the previous book, this one doesn’t begin with a mythology story. Instead, it begins with Tiana’s past. Also, you can tell that the author was trying to make this book like the previous one because she was trying to put a different spin to the series that you wouldn’t thought would happen.
However, for me, it wasn’t a good spin or that interesting. In fact, I think it made the series a little worse than it I have come to expect from this series. With Tiana added in to the mix, it made the storyline more complicated than I would have liked, I guess. I get that she is need to try and save Catty, but to let her have a choice of becoming a Daughter of the Moon because of that, her power, and past is a little annoying. However, at least Tiana had to prove herself worthy first, but it is still kind of annoying. ^^;
Anyways, the tone and dialogue still 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 other 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.
Anyways, this book of the series is my least favorite one because of the character, Tiana, and the small amount of character growth. The only reason why I would read this book of the series is just to see what happened in the series in order of the books.
