Review ~ Dark Moon by Leisl Leighton

Dark Moon
Title: Dark Moon
Author: Leisl Leighton
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Published: March 17th 2014







Lately, Skye Collins has been unable to shake the feeling that she's being watched. After a lifetime spent hiding her true nature, she knows that any unusual attention is something to be wary of. And the only attention she's been receiving lately is from the intense and attractive Jason McVale.

Jason claims to know things about Skye that can't be true, and it's obvious he's hiding secrets of his own. Yet despite herself, Skye can't resist the attraction between them, and her surrender will set in motion a chain of events that will have consequences for everyone she holds dear.

Gradually, Jason convinces Skye that she has to trust him if she is to solve the riddle of her past and learn the truth about her power. But believing Jason means that her entire life has been based on a lie.

As her enemies gather strength and the danger increases, Skye is forced to accept who she really is. Will she risk everything and fight for those she loves? Or save herself and let them be destroyed by the forces of darkness?

It has been a while since I have found a good paranormal romance, and after finishing Dark Moon I think that I have found a new series I am going to enjoy. It is written by an Australian author – Leisl Leighton – and it’s set in my state of Victoria too! It was exciting imagining the scene, visiting places that I have been to before. Not only that, I was swept away by the exciting storyline and the sizzling romance.

Since Skye was a child, she lived in fear of two things: her power and large dogs. Skye’s grandparents raised her and to protect her, they bound her powers. When she is run over by a drop dead gorgeous snowboarder on a run down the mountain, her powers become stronger and soon danger is on her doorstep.

The chemistry between Skye and Jason is undeniable and they find it very difficult not to act on it immediately. It may seem like their relationship is very fast paced, but throughout the story their pasts are revealed. Skye is the type of girl who likes to stand up for herself as she has been controlled too much in the past. This trait made it entertaining when she was with Jason because he wants everything done his way and for it to happen now. Jason soon learns that he has to tread carefully with Skye so she can understand everything fully.

I enjoyed the pace of Dark Moon and it had a great mix of mystery, action and romance. The storyline was intriguing; the link between an Alpha and a Pack-Witch in particular. There were great side characters introduced that I’m excited to see more of. Shelley and Bron were fantastic friends and support for Skye. Jason’s brother Adam was amusing at times and is very important to the pack too. The constant danger throughout the book had most of the characters on edge, and the true evil masterminds weren’t revealed until late in the book. It was a very exciting paranormal romance and the story is far from over! I’m excited to see where things will go now!

  1. What? A werewolf book that ISN'T on my wishlist? I must rectify this immediately! I like the idea of a pack witch. Well, I guess my next stop after your blog is going to be Amazon. LOL Happy Friday! :)
