Hello friends! Today I have my book review of
The Last Vessel, by Winter Rose.
The Last Vessel is the first book in The Chronicles of Luna Moon series.
Trigger Warnings: Fighting, prejudice, Torture mention, Blood mention, Blood, Sex Scenes.
I thought that the hardest thing I would have to face this year would be Trial Month.
Gods, I was naïve.
My name is Luna Moon. Don’t ask me what I am, because complicated doesn’t even begin to cut it. I recently found out that
everything I knew to be true has been a lie.
Including who I am.
The goddesses and their chosen Guardians have been keeping a secret, and in the wrong hands, this secret would plunge our worlds into chaos.
We are the only thing that stands in the way of the realms’ greatest evil escaping his eternal prison.
Scratch that, I’M the only thing standing in his way.
Themis’ scales have tipped.
Nobody is safe.
Nothing is as it seems.
No one can be trusted.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
There are a few different characters whose view points that we read from. However, the story is honestly about Luna, and Luna with her…mates, as she finds out. So there’s one main point of view, and that’s definitely from Luna. Thrown in there are a few other different viewpoints which honestly brought a nice touch to the story.
I enjoyed reading The Last Vessel so much–more than I thought I would. Honestly, The Last Vessel is so freaking good. Though to be fair, there’s a lot of blood talk; i.e.: blood-letting, blood drinking. There’s also sex, mating, and all that other fun jazz. So if you don’t like scenes with any of the trigger’s listed above, I highly recommend that you don’t read The Last Vessel.
One thing that the story had going for it right from the start, is how the story flowed. I talk about “story flow” quite a bit in my book reviews, and I do that because it’s a tremendously important factor in the books I read. If I don’t like the flow of the story, I know that the rest of the story will be a tad more difficult for me to read. Unless I DNF the book.
Which brings me to conclude that I liked how the story flowed, and I especially enjoyed how Luna sternly stood her ground and didn’t let the guys fight all of her battles.
The relationships between everyone, and everyone else versus Luna had me very curious.Everyone mainly being Luna’s mates. Not only to see how things would work–especially that power play at hand–but also because for a good part of Luna’s life she’s been told that she was absolutely worthless. Less than trash even.
Another thing that was compelling me to finish reading this book, was to see how the mate bond works between them all.
The fight scenes that took place in this first Chronicles of Luna Moon series were awesome. Luna is so freaking badass.
Actually, I enjoyed reading The Last Vessel so much that I’m already really excited for the second book.
Honestly though, The Last Vessel was quick read. I say that, yet it took me about a week to read Luna’s story only because I had a mini reading slump happen. Oof.
I give The Last Vessel, 4 stars.
Have you read The Last Vessel, or anything else by Winter Rose?
I know at the moment Rose only has The Last Vessel Out (unless Winter Rose is a pen-name). But I’m glad that I stopped and took the time to read Luna’s story. I will definitely be reading more of Rose’s work in the future.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
P.S. I hate to say this, but I genuinely believe that Luke will betray her (Luna) one day—-I believe that it’s going to be sooner rather than later.
