Xavier Blackwood is the man every girl at my college dreams about at night, myself included, but I’d never let anyone know that.

Standing at 6’8 with steel grey eyes, he’s a walking dream, but he’s also a world-renowned jerk.

Who would have thought that one night, after dragging myself home after doing double shifts at the diner, I’d be jumped by three men…only to have Xavier come to my rescue.

Oh yes, Xavier bloody Blackwood saved my life…but the thing I saw, the CREATURE that ripped those men to shreds wasn’t the Xavier everyone knows.

He wasn’t human…

He was a wolf, a demon, a creature from myths, and it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen until he attacked me too and knocked me out.

Humans that learn about the existence of werewolves have to die.

…There are NO exceptions.

The Werewolf Xavier saved me, but now I am condemned to death

To make things worse, both Xavier and Axel claim I am their mate

…this can’t be good.

When Ruby is jumped while walking home one night, Xavier, her friend’s cousin, comes to her rescue. Only, instead of fighting off her attackers like a human, he transforms into a werewolf.  Which, in their world is a huge no-no. Human’s are forbidden to know about the werewolves existence. So, Ruby gets locked up at Xavier’s pack estate where she awaits her fate. Only, she has no clue that Xavier has imprinted on her and that she is his mate. Needless to say, her world will never be the same.

This story stated off pretty solid. You have a human that is saved by a werewolf only to find out that they are destined mates. But wait, there’s more! Another wolf comes out of left field and claims that she’s his mate as well. Except, he is very much against humans and is horrified that the woman he’s mated to is a human. All of this just sounds so juicy! I was in it to win it, however, that’s about as good as it got for me.

I kind of had a problem with Ruby. She keeps saying that Xavier shouldn’t have saved her if it meant she was stuck in their world. Um, girlfriend, you were about to be gang raped, and you’re upset that a werewolf saved you, thus making you part of their world? I just… how does that even make sense? Just, some of the things she said was just so dumbfounding that I actually kinda wished the werewolves nixed her and moved on.

I wish I could say that Ruby grew on me, however, this is one of those one book sectioned off into different books. So, there was not really any time to connect with the characters or even see any development. Instead, the book just kinda cuts off the moment a climatic part hits. Which, for me, I’m not a fan of. I’m not a fan of the gimicky stuff to get readers to spend more money on your books, when the story could have easily been in one novel.

One Thought on “Review: Luna Rising by Sara Snow

  1. Oh no, that’s an awful ending. Yeah this doesn’t sound like my kind of book. How disappointing.
