2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
After a long time of being trapped in Nefandus, Vanessa is finally able to escape from Nefandus. However, she had to leave Serena behind, and now, Vanessa must rescue her before the final eclipse and her seventeenth birthday.
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.
Since it is the last book of the series, there isn’t any mythology story. However, you will be given information that you’ll learn more about later on in the books. So, I guess the beginning is not really that necessary to read, unless you really want to read it.
Anyways, the book includes pretty much every Daughter of the Moon, except Tianna, but it is mostly told through Vanessa’s point of view. It might feel kind of rushed, but it won’t leave you that unsatisfied. I like how the author was able to pull all of it together and make it make sense. Usually, when any author does a long series, they lose sight of the plot they were trying to make and just make the series even longer, so this author gets kudos for not doing that. I also like how the author was able to put so many twists in the book and series.
Like all the other books, 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 book being the last in the series.
Overall, this book is great, so go ahead and read all 13 of the books in this series, since almost all of them are quite interesting.
