Book Review: Blood Moon

Blood Moon-min

I was sent the EBook of Blood Moon by Lena Hillbrand to review. I honestly had no idea what the book was about so I went into the reading of it with no expectations. Sometimes I think that is the best way to go really.

This book takes place in a time where Vampires are in charge and humans exist to serve as livestock. Only people with money own their own humans. The others can go to restaurants where they can have their choice of human. They are also rationed, so they are only allowed a certain amount each day. Draven Castle, a vampire, comes across a human girl, Aspen, on the streets and does something he knows he shouldn’t. He drinks her blood. Her blood is like something he has never tried before and, years later, when he comes across her again he can’t seem to let her go.

When I first started reading this book I had no idea if I would enjoy it. However, I read the entire book in one night so it is safe to say that I could not put it down. It is really easy to read and everything flows really well. Blood Moon is well written and very descriptive which is great!

My only issue with this book is that when Draven first meets Aspen, she is 11 years old. Now I know that all he does is drink her blood but I feel as though it is a very intimate thing, especially the way that he describes her. And it kind of creeped me out that she was so young. I would have preferred it if she was even just 16.

Aspen, whose name later changes to Cali (don’t worry, it all gets explained), can be incredibly rude considering her position. She is a lowly human and sometimes takes quite a strong tone with Draven. Someone who, although he is at the bottom of his food chain, still holds more power than she does.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to get my hand on the next book in the series. This book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger so I am excited to see what happens next!

    Sounds intriguing – the 11 year old part is not cool though. Nice review

    Yeah, I’m not sure I could love the part about her being a little girl – I have little girls, and if it’s made out to be a very intimate sort of encounter, that ups the creep factor a little too much for me. I’ll admit I’m pretty intrigued by the rest of the story concept though!

      Yeah I was not a fan of that part but a good book overall!
