Blood Moon (Everealm #3)
Release Date: January 1st 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
Okay, So, I might be a little bit obsessed with this book... or a lot.. with the whole series.... don't judge.... :)
This book was just as good as te first two, if not better. The amazing writing style was brought back, the well developed characters were seen again and new characters were developed. The plot was just as amazing but I really think the characters are the gems in this series.
In Blood Moon, there are a lot of different things happening that eventually intertwine. We have Bree, Rowan, Dagan and Sidonie who mainly remain in Junacave, along with Reeve and his "fairy partner." Something valuable to them has been stolen and needs to be retrieved. We also have Rianne and Zander, where the former has run away from her home and found the latter during her journey. Dahlia has found a new partner at Rianne's home and Finn and Adelphie go through some rough spots. The two little sisters, Sarita and Gabby, also go on some... dare I say "wild" adventures. Somehow, Silas and Vallica have found their way back (in)to each other. The book is called "Blood Moon" is because an important event that happens in the book has the same name.
I will be getting into spoilers now, so I suggest you scroll past the rest of this if you wish not to be spoiled.
Let's talk spoilers...
I feel like Bree and Rowan were acting more like parents to Sarita than actual "to-be-married" partners. I think all the wedding planning had stressed them out so we didn't really get much Browan in this book, but what we did get was still A-MA-ZING! I love that Rowan was clever enough to slip the real stone into his pocket after Dagan's father gave them a fake.
Sidonie and Dagan did fight a bit about Cassandra, but other than that, Sidagan was on fire! It was really awkward when they were caught... in the middle of a garden. I loved the conversation about marriage between the two - so cute! We saw a sweeter side to Dagan that we hadn't before.
Rianne and Zander were hilarious! Zander kept teasing Rianne and she kept saying "Shut UP!" and laughing along. For most of the book, they were just friends and it was fun to read. The way those two became a couple.... geez.
I am so glad that Rhea and Reeve managed to figure it out at the end. It was so sweet when they actually did reconcile, and why they reconciled. They might be one of my new OTPs... not sure... but maybe....
Sarita and Gabby, oh gosh, I feel so sorry for them! They were kidnapped, and on top of that, Sarita found out something life changing about her parents. It was weird watching two little girls try to escape from the tower. It almost felt like they weren't little girls, but grown up women.
I cannot believe what happened to Adelphie! Finn does not deserve any of this. He is the single sweetest person in the whole world! Whoever took away her memories shall pay...
Dahlia and Xavier... so that happened. I never thought Rianne and her family would be a prominent part of the book, but it turned out that way. I don't fully trust Xavier yet but I hope he'll grow on me. Then again, I hated Dahlia at first.
Silas and Vallica. I didn't think Vallica could have been that much of a dumb bitch as to willingly go back to her ex-husband. But she did. I just wanted to slap her so hard. I cannot believe her.
I cannot wait to read Aurora and the conclusion, but I really don't want this series to end!
