Review: Low Red Moon

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.Part murder mystery, part grief narrative, and part heart-stopping, headlong romance, Low Red Moon is a must-read for teen paranormal fans. As breathless as Twilight and as spooky as Shiver, this is a book to be devoured in one sitting—by an acclaimed YA author making her paranormal debut under the pseudonym Ivy Devlin. - from Goodreads

I am a huge fan of werewolf books and when I heard about this I knew I just had to read it. The only thing that kind of bugged me was that it had mixed reviews. It seemed to have the same equal amount of people who disliked it and people who liked it, so it confused me and almost made me decide to not read it. But in the end, I'm really glad that I went ahead and read it. I really enjoyed this book. It had a good amount of mystery, romance and angst. 

The only complaint I can give about this book was the unexplained connection Avery shares with Ben. It just seemed to come from nowhere and at a very wrong time considering her parents just died in such a horrible way. But beside that I very much enjoyed Low Red Moon. Devlin did a great job at making one feel the pain and depression Avery was feeling with the loss of her parents. She also made the mystery very suspenseful. I could not believe who the killer was at the end. It left me completely shocked. If you like mysteries, you should definitely read this book!
