She’s struggling to adjust to life without them, and to living with her grandmother, when she meets Ben, who isn’t like any guy she’s ever met before.

It turns out there’s a reason why, and Ben’s secret may hold the key to Avery finding out what happened to her parents…

But what if that secret changes everything she knows about–and feels for–Ben?

I am a bit late with my review of Low Red Moon, I was supposed to have this up on the 13th so please do accept my apologies.

I read Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin in the space of a few hours. I was caught up in the story and Avery’s reactions to everything. I loved the fact that the heart of the forest chose to speak through Avery and she chose to allow it. Low Red Moon isn’t full of paranormal suspense. It is more like a diary of what Avery herself can see and understand.

Avery wakes up with a deputy in a pool of blood. It takes her a while to realize the blood is from her parents and they are dead. She is only seventeen so she has to move in with her Grandmother Renee while the murder is investigated. Avery doesn’t know her grandmother well, her dad was peeved at her a lot due to the fact that Renee wanted more for him than living in that town and writing at the Podunk paper.

Devlin paints a love story inside Low Red Moon and most of my reading focused on the story of Avery and Ben. When she finds out Ben is a wolf and could be a suspect for the murder of her parents she puts that past her and tries to trust and love him.

This book isn’t like your run of the mill paranormal. With the paranormal bits thrown few and far between on the pages it can seem a cross from para to contemp at any given page.

If you like Holly Black’s Modern Faerie series you will love Low Red Moon.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for review from the publisher.
