Bloomsbury, 2011. ISBN 9781408813980.
Ivy Devlin, author of Low Red Moon, has created a masterpiece I wasn't able to put down.
Low Red Moon is made up with the main characters, Avery, a girl who believes she is no more than human but is actually wrong, Ben, the cute, new-boy at school, hiding something that changes Avery's life, Renee, Avery's grandmother, Ron, the deceiving sheriff and Louis, Ben's great-uncle.
Avery's parents are brutally murdered. Strangely enough, Avery can't remember anything about that night, only that her mum wanted her to go out and pick mushrooms for their dinner. She can, however, remember silver. Silver slicing through the air inhumanly fast, the sounds of tearing flesh and blood. Blood soaking right through her clothes, shoes, all through her hair and between her toes.
Then Ben comes to town. Avery feels a strange pull towards him, she can feel what he is thinking and feeling. Ben feels the same pull towards Avery, only stronger. He also feels what she is thinking and feeling.
At first Avery builds trust in Ben, only for it shatter almost immediately. Ben tries so hard to stay away from Avery, for her own good, but Avery wants Ben, as does he want her so they always find each other.
This book has the Bella-Edward romantic edge to it along with the murder mysteries and threats. I loved this book and I recommend it to all of the 'Team Jacob' fans. Happy reading!!
