Dark of the Moon by Rachel Hawthorne

Genre: YA Fiction

Author Website: www.rachelhawthorne.net

One Word Review: Entertaining

First Line: “Death hovers in the shadows.”

Synopsis: “Brittany is determined to prove herself to the Dark Guardians. And yet she's been keeping a devastating secret: She hasn't experienced any of the intense, early signs of change that mark a Dark Guardian's transformation. The only intense feelings she has are for Connor—and she's kept that a secret, too. But she knows she'll never truly have Connor's love if she's not a Shifter like him. At the first full moon after her birthday, her greatest fear is realized: She doesn't transform. Brittany is so desperate to become a wolf that she'll go to extremes she never thought possible . . . and put all the Dark Guardians in incredible danger.” -GoodReads

Kathy’s Review: Book three in the Dark Guardian series follows Brittany. We get to see Brittany in a totally different light in this book. In the first two, she kind of comes across as moody and stuck-up. Once you get inside her head you begin to understand all her insecurities and the hardships she’s going through. I really came to love Brittany’s character in this book, she may be my favorite. Brittany has been in love with Connor (Lindsey’s boyfriend in books one and two) pretty much all her life, knowing she could never be with him. She is also approaching her seventeenth birthday where she will have her first transformation into a werewolf. In their culture you’re suppose to go through this with your mate, the only problem is that no one has claimed Brittany as their mate, so she has to face it alone. I really enjoyed Brittany and Connor’s story. I was a little confused with how quickly Connor came around, but I guess it all makes sense in the end.

I’m looking forward to reading Shadow of the Moon which comes out next Spring. Everything seemed to come together at the end of Dark of the Moon, so I’m curious to see what Hawthorne has in store for our characters.

Reading Order:
Book One: Moonlight
Book Two: Full Moon
Book Three: Dark of the Moon
Book Four: Shadow of the Moon
