Hello and welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog I have my book review of:
Her Dark Moon is the first book in the House of Wolves and Magic series.
Trigger / Content Warnings: Murder mentions, Parent Death/Murder mentions, Brother’s Murder mentions, Gun Violence, Gun Violence resulting in Death, Drugging, Abuse, Blood, Kidnapping, Stalking, Sex (completely consensual).
As a lone wolf, I avoid imprinting on a mate like my life depends on it. Because it does.
My brother gave his life to help me escape the pack. Now, after being in hiding for the last few years, I’m seeing shifters outside of their normal territory, and they’re getting closer to my little patch of wolf-free paradise.
If they find out I’m still alive, they’ll haul me back and mate me to some random wolf, keeping me as a breeding machine to perpetuate our species. Forced imprinting is supposed to be forbidden, but if I know my pack, that won’t stop them from getting what they want.
With danger lurking around every corner and the chance of me being caught getting ever higher, I’m on the verge of descending into hopelessness. Until I meet Roman. But what if he’s just the lure to chain me to a different pack?
As badly as I want to be free from the obligations of a pack, that freedom just might cost me the guy. But as it turns out, my feelings for Roman are only half my trouble…
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.
Diving into my review of Her Dark Moon, I’m going to start off with saying that Her Dark Moon was a great read, and I loved the main character. I absolutely love how Her Dark Moon is a reverse harem novel, which, I didn’t actually know until the end of the novel. I was in for quite the shock!
Typically within novels there are characters that I don’t like — can’t escape that, that’s just how things go. Fortunately, I genuinely liked the characters in Her Dark Moon. But not only did I just like the characters, I liked the story, and the pace of plot too (which is very important to me).
I’m quite looking forward to reading the second book when I can!
I ended up giving Her Dark Moon, 3 stars.
Have you read Her Dark Moon?
Do you read Reverse Harem books, or are they not your thing?
Thank you for stopping by.
See you soon, and happy reading.
