The Mayfair Moon by J.A. Redmerski (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. From Goodreads.
Now I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book because there have been soooo many werewolf stories recently. But I figured that I would still give it a chance, the worst that could happen is that I don’t like it. Luckily not only did I like it but I loved it.
I loved how there were 2 different types of werewolves, and how angry her sister got about what happened to them. I really liked that they were taken in by their family and eventually Adria made friends and started to care about her family, although she was still worried about her sister.
Now Isaac tried so hard not to include Adria into what was going on, it seemed but eventually he caved to how he felt about her. And once she knew about werewolves everything seemed to make more sense. I loved how he wanted her but not if it was going to cost her humanity. It was crazy, poor Isaac since he had to fight his mom to keep Adria and he had to fight the alpha of the other group of werewolves because he wanted her too.
I was honestly shocked by how much I enjoyed this story that I was sad to see it end. I can’t wait to read the second book. There was action and romance and of course the paranormal in this book.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
