My POV: Ties To The Blood Moon by Robin P. Waldrop

Thank you Robin for providing this book for review!
ebook, 1st Edition
Published November 1st 2011 by Robin P. Waldrop via Smashwords 

Genevieve is a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt in Alaska after the death of her mother. Soon after her arrival she learns the things she was raised to believe only existed in fairytales are in fact a big part of her history. When it gets to be too much she seeks refuge in the arms of her new boyfriend, William, only to find out he's not who she thought he was either.--Goodreads

I got through this book in no time. This book does have a lot of similarities to Twilght and the Underwold movies but it is definitely it's own entity. I my self am a HUGE fan of Twilght and Underworld so I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It was very interesting to see this whole world unfold and to see the characters come into their own.

Genevieve "Gen" Labreck has moved from LA to Haven Alaska in order to live with her aunt after losing her mom. Trying to get her mothers horrific death off her mind she convinces her aunt to let her go to public school. Aunt  Bev is a little reluctent but decides that maybe home schooling is not the best for Gen. Haven High is not very big but has some very interesting students. Some being Adlet (werewolf warriors), some being Vampire and most being humas this is the place where Gen will meet her most trusted allies and friend. Luna and Gen become best friends in no time and the gorgeous William Novack seems to be intigued by her right away.

In the short time that Gen has moved into town she is informed of a legend of a Adlet princess returning to her rightful place and helping stop a deadly war that has been raging on for years. Gen has no interest in any of the stories and in a non believer until she happens upon an ancient book that tells the same story but contains a picture of someone who has an uncanning resemblance to her mother. Things escalate from then on and don't stop rolling.

This was a very exiting read with exuberant characters and an epic story line. Gen still has lots to get done, lives to save and scores to settle. I can't wait to see what butt she kicks in the next book...
" I invite the princess of the Adlet wolf to join me in spiritual union. She is the tenth of the tenth consecutive daughters. On this night the mood will start out white, but when she rises to take the thrones, the moon will bleed and become solid red. Come. Give me the blessing and show me your mark. If she is one upon us let the fire turn dark." Miss Baylor stopped, immediately the fire went completely out...
