2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
When Catty recklessly drops Jimena into the past in order to change the future, she accidentally drops her into enemy gang-infested territory. As Jimena tries to fix the future, she also has to deal with sirens, the police, her old enemy, Payasa, and something she never thought could happen.
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 a little longer than the other books.
Like most of the other books, it tries to start out with a mythology story, or what seems like a mythology story. This time it was about Medusa and how her blood created something. No more about that right now though since you learn more about it in the book.
Anyways, in this book, we continue to learn more about the Daughters of the Moon, Atrox, and what’s more, we get to learn more about Jimena’s past. The plot isn’t really that interesting, and it only gets really interesting during the last few chapters of the book. Though, it did have a sort of good twist at the end of the book. The only parts I really liked where the ones with Collin and Chris, otherwise, I found almost all the book boring.
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 are still 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 these points. 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). 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.
This series is very good, but this book is not one of the best ones since it was too bleh for me.
