The gang finds themselves up to their eyeballs in family history when  clues are revealed that suggest an evil curse is hidden within the O’Rielly Book of Shadows. An old family diary divulges the O’Rielly family was an integral part in stymying a power hungry witch that took the lives of thirteen young girls and clues to spells whereabouts seem to suggest they’re in the O’Rielly Book of Shadows.
One by one young women are reported missing from neighboring towns when two mysterious women show up in town. Is it coincidence? Or has someone come back to complete the unfinished spell from the past? No one knows but when Allison’s life is in the balance, the gang pulls together to find a way to stop the past from repeating itself.

Blood Moon is the second book in a series. I haven’t read the first book, so it was hard to follow at first, but once I got the hang of who was who, it was a great read. The book focuses on Darby and Rowan, two sisters, and their friends. The main plot involves the disappearance of young woman, colliding with the arrival of two mysterious women in town. It’s up to Darby, Rowan and their friends to find out, and to stop the past from repeating themselves. But in between boy trouble and saving town, they have plenty of stuff on their plates.

Good writing, a solid plot, and an intriguing mix of old family lore, witches, werewolves and vampires. This book reads like an updated and improved version of Twilight. Much improved. I loved how the author managed to combine present and past, and blur the lines of history between both.

Rowan was my favorite character, although I loved Blake as well. And Devon. For some reason, I wasn’t so fond of Dean, and while I liked Darby most of the time, I much preferred Rowan. But hey, personal preferences.

An intriguing YA novel for everyone who likes witches, vampires and our furry friends.
