Alyssa Coldwell is bound for a destiny as an immortal witch, but she desperately wants the chance to live a normal, human life for as long as she can. She takes a vacation from magic, but magic refuses to leave her in peace. The fey world draws her back in more so than ever before.
In the midst of all the mayhem, she meets Kane Ice. He’s human, meaning he’s forbidden fruit, for the fey world has laws against immortals and mortals. Worried her world will either get him killed or leave him with scars he’ll never overcome, she keeps pushing him away. Kane refuses to be deterred though. He loves the girl he believes is meant for him.
Dark secrets emerge all around the two of them, putting them both in the line of fire and destroying the beauty of their love. The question is, how strong is their love?
This book, with so many types of supernatural beings, was one of a kind. Dark users, light users, changers, night walkers, Lycans, and probably many more, it was exciting and full of action. I was hooked from the first chapter, and I had to force myself to stop reading and go to bed. Otherwise, I would have read the whole book in one sitting.
As Alyssa approaching her immortal age, her hormone was uncontrollable, and with Kane feeling that Alyssa belonged to him, he was possessive over her. Ended up, they both were so into one another. By the way, I found that Alyssa’s inner monologue was funny, though 😊.
I liked the moments where Alyssa being protective over Kane. Worried he would get hurt, she drove him away, but Kane was death worried and relentless, so he tried to chase her all over the places. Alyssa’s spying magic was useful too, but whenever she used it, Kane managed not to slip on important information that would reveal his true self, which I found quite frustrating!
However, I knew from the start that Kane wasn’t what Alyssa thought he was. They both hid the secret from each other that might destroy their blossoming relationship. Let’s hope they both would rekindle their relationship in the next book.
Alyssa has spent her entire life foolishly believing things are only laid out in black or white, but now she finds herself stuck in the gray area. The inner battle she faces with her own dark power that she has denied for too long starts to brew all the more fiercely. Kane’s coldness breaks her heart even more than it’s already broken, but fate’s cruel sense of humor forces them to band together despite their torrid conflict.
The biggest problem… There are consequences she didn’t know she’d have to face after giving herself to Kane, and she finds herself in pain each and every time she’s near him. A pain that leaves her feeling like a puppet.
Hope rests on the shoulders of her enemies, and her allies pile up in all the wrong forms. When tragedy strikes, she’s faced with more dark choices to make. Everything gets twisted, and she becomes stuck in the middle of an internal game of tug-of-war. Gage is there, but he’s just as much her enemy as a night stalker. How can she trust any of them?
The world is fully of deadly beauties, and deception is their best played game. Alyssa keeps learning the hard way how true this is.
Again! I started the book right after I finished with the first one, and it was a mistake because the story was engaging, and it sucked me in and wouldn’t let me have my good night’s sleep. The betrayal she felt was so bitter, and it made my heartache for her too.
Throughout the painful moment, Alyssa found herself seeking comfort and release with another forbidden breed, a dark user. Gage was caring and a gentleman, perfect for her, but her heart wasn’t into him, at least that’s what she’d been telling herself.
The storyline was full of twists and turn. Usually, though, I was quite good at predicting, but I surrendered with this book. The disappearance of Alyssa’s mother, the prophecy, also, I have no idea who Alyssa would be with, but I hope it would be Kane! Team Kane all the way!
Red Moon Secrets
Secrets are spilled, lies are revealed, and dark destinies emerge. She’s judged them all – now they’ll be the ones to judge her.
Alyssa is no longer seeing the gray area – she’s living in it. A destiny she never considered is consuming her. Everything ends, and it ends now – no matter what the outcome.
Great conclusion to this trilogy, but I wished it was longer. I’d grown into Alyssa and Kane; I Loved the other characters too, and the adventure they all took me on this week was unforgettable!
Thankfully, there’s a continuation to the series – The Deadly Beauties Live On! Thank you, C.M. Owens, for not giving up on Alyssa’s world and continue with the story. I’ll make sure to read the rest of the series you’ve written.
