Ties to the Blood Moon Review

Ties to the Blood Moon by ROBIN P. WALDROP

Genevieve is a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt in Alaska after the death of her mother. Soon after her arrival she learns the things she was raised to believe only existed in fairytales are in fact a big part of her history. When it gets to be too much she seeks refuge in the arms of her new boyfriend, William, only to find out he's not who she thought he was either (goodreads).

Okay I'm going to keep this review short and sweet. This book was not for me. 

Genevieve's mom dies in a mysterious fire and lands her in Alaska. Immediately, she meets handsome William who is off limits. Even though another girl seems to have claimed William, Genevieve can't help her growing attraction. She learns of the lycans and their supposed princess. Although she believe none of it to be true. everyone seems certain that she is the lycan princess. 

Genevieve was not a likable characer, which made this book hard to digest. Even if I don't like a character, I have to be able to understand where he or she is coming from-I didn't get that in this book. Genevieve is a brat. She yells when she doesn't get her way and is extremely disrespectful to her aunt. Also she makes AWFUL choices. But that's another story. 

I found the story hard to get through as well. So we go to Alaska and learn that there is a family of werewolves looking for their princess, not only that but there is a vampire. Oh and I'm pretty sure that there are hints of a love triangle. Been there. Done that. 

If you are a fan of Twilight, I say go for it but this book was not for me. This book had its moments and even a twist that I did not foresee, but that did not make up for the rest of the novel.  


  1. Nice review. I wasn't about to finish this one, sadly. Too many things bothered me about it. Too bad it wasn't a lot better for you either.
