REVIEW: Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

Product Description

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.Part murder mystery, part grief narrative, and part heart-stopping, headlong romance, Low Red Moon is a must-read for teen paranormal fans. As breathless as Twilight and as spooky as Shiver, this is a book to be devoured in one sitting—by an acclaimed YA author making her paranormal debut under the pseudonym Ivy Devlin.

Another creepy book that is more twilight zone than twilight and I mean that in a good way.  I really feel I should be listening to Linkin Park after reading this since the music just seems to fit the story.  Well, at least to me it does.  The mood of this story is just so full of despair and at least towards the end the is a ray of hope.  I really felt for Avery and you could just taste the confusion that is now her life after her parents are murdered.  I think this one is nicely wrapped up with an "OHHH" moment that will really catch you off guard.  And now that I think about it, a sequel would be nice.

Parents:  some gore, some kissing, not much drugs or drinking.  I think you might steal this book to read it first though.
