2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Tiana is starting to feel very unsettled, but she has no idea as to why since everything is going great for her. However, when she feels something watching her and Jason and Mason say she’s “becoming”, she starts to worry even more. What is becoming? And, does that mean her dark side is taking over her?
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 I’ve read so far.
After taking a break from telling mythology stories in the last couple of books, the author finally goes back to telling them in this book. It starts out with telling about Pandora and how the Gods created her to release the sorrows. Then it goes on about how the Atrox used the same idea to create a woman for itself. I know it is completely different from the original, but I like how the author made the original mythology into something that will fit into the series and book.
Tiana isn’t really my favorite character, but this book has a good twist to it. I like how the author has been building up the excitement and action in these last couple of books. The ending of this book might be a little sad, but it makes it interesting. ;)
I like how 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 and history that is incorporated in it. Also, the character growth and their personalities are believable (for a supernatural book). I also like how these things haven’t diminished, despite this series almost ending.
This series is getting really interesting, so go ahead and read this series and book already. :D
