Review
Mari has been raised by her mother who is an Earth Walker. Calling on the power of the moon her mother can heal the clan. 


 Mari should be the one chosen to be her mothers appreciate  but there is a problem Mari has had to hide half of herself her whole life because her father was not of the Earth Walkers.


 When an attack turning her world  upside down Mari decides to stop hiding the other half of herself.


Nik is from the clan that Mari’s father had come from and is out with other members from his tribe searching the lost pup when he sees Mari call on the power of the sun.
 Nik finds out who Mari might be from his father who was friends with Mari’s father and is determined to track her down. Unfortunately the thing that brings the two together is Nik needing Mari’s help. 
Moon Chosen was an intriguing read, however as a fan of The House of Night series i didnt enjoy this as much as i would have liked. 
 The length of the book is over six hundred pages and it felt there could have been a more direct approach to the world and character building that could have cut the book down quite a bit and not had me wondering if I should continue on reading in the beginning. 
In addition to the fantasy element there’s a love story here that transcends local allegiance and world view. Like Romeo and Juliet, the moon and sun crossed couple of Moon Chosen have history and culture to transcend but hopefully a happier ending awaits them.
 

​Wrecked by Anna Davies

 


Synopsis 


Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this. 


Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.


  But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.
 Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.


Review


I was really drawn into reading this book because of the  cover. It caught my eye and was why i picked the book up.


Set in a small town  where everyone knows everyone and unless  you  were born there you are still considered a  outsider. 


17-year-old Miranda is looking forward to making the most of her holidays  with her friends, before they go their separate ways to college, when disaster strikes.


They are enjoying  a night time joy ride when a storm suddenly sets in. Thrown overboard by her boyfriend in an effort to save her, Miranda is drowning when she is saved by the mysterious Christian.
 Unfortunately though her friends aren’t as lucky, and with three friends dead, herself and two others injured and her boyfriend in a coma.


The townsfolk already thought that Miranda was cursed after her parent’s died when she was a child, so when her friends die on the water as well, the whispers turn to ugly glares and accusation’s, that an accident wasn’t so much an accident. After all, why did she get to  live. Especially when she was driving.


To add a little magic to the story we have the legends of   sea witch Sephie and the mysterious  Christian, a betwixtmen.  


This book is beautifully written, a master piece of superstition woven to an ending you won’t see coming.
