Book Review #124 - The Mayfair Moon (The Darkwoods Trilogy #1) by J.A. Redmerski

The Mayfair Moon (The Darkwoods Trilogy, #1)

After a nightmarish encounter with a werewolf, seventeen-year-old Adria Dawson loses her sister, but gains the love of a mysterious young man and his legendary family.

Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable ‘illness’ and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from.

As unspeakable secrets unfold all around Adria, impossible choices become hers to bear. Ultimately, no matter what path she takes, her life and the lives of those she loves will be in peril. As she learns about the werewolf world she also learns why her place in it will change the destinies of many.

My Rating: 4/5

I was given this book for review from the author. The author's goodreads page is here.

This book was really perfectly paced and you were never inundated with too much information at any time.

It had been a while since I had read a book solely about werewolves so this book was a refreshing read. It also rates highly on my favourite werewolf books.

I really liked the protagonist Adria as she was unlike any protagonist I have read in any previous books. I liked her relationship with her sister Alex.

There were aspects of the book that reminded me of Twilight which is not always a good thing, but in this case it worked really well.

This is an alternate cover of this book:
