Review: Moon Spun
Moon Spun by Marilee Brothers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Disclosure: I received a free special eBook version of this series, including all four books in one, from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Synopsis Book 3: Moon Spun: Junior's back from Mexico with his movie-star entourage. Beck's using his half-demon charms to "heal" a new girl. Mom's still wacky and now she's dating Principal Hostetler. High school is still an obstacle course of drama queens, bullies and nutjobs. The Trimarks are still a menace, and the moonstone pendant has revealed even more mind-boggling powers. In other words, Allie Emerson's life as the Girl Voted Least Likely To Save The World From Evil has gone from Weird to Super-Charged Super-Weird, and it's about to get even weirder. You're a faery princess. So says the mysterious Ryker, whose handsome talents include turning himself into a hawk. By the way, he and Allie are destined to marry. In faery land--Boundless. If they can save it from forces even more deadly than Trimarks and high school. The third book in the Unbidden Magic series plunges readers into a rich other-world of danger, humor, romance, fable, fairytale and magical destiny.
My Thoughts: Wow, things are getting more weird for Allie all the time. Now it turns out she is part faery, and not just any faery, but the descendant of a queen. Plus now she has three men in her life, with Junior coming back, and the addition of Ryker. Lots of new information coming out in this book, and based on the ending, I’d say we’re in for even more revelations in the 4th book.
One thing that has caused me some confusion is Allie’s high school level. By my calculations, she should be preparing to go into her Junior year of high school. She, Beck and Nichole are the same age, but Beck has already graduated and gone off to college in Seattle, while Allie is described as having to put up with Nichole for “one more year.” But if she’s going into her Junior year, then she has two years left – and did Beck really graduate two years early? I think there might have been a bit of a mix-up there.
But don’t let that stop you – this was a fun addition to the storyline, and full of great stuff – faeries and werebats and toadlings and all sorts of wonderful craziness. Definitely fits in with the rest of the series, and lots of fun to read. 5 out of 5 stars.
