The Blurb from Goodreads: As the rise in supernatural disturbances continually expands to more obvious locations, Candra’s family and friends are on a never-ending hunt to remove the region’s dark magic. Greater forces are at work, though, as an accidental link is formed between Candra and Ben, “marking” their souls and coupling them forever. They can now see each other’s thoughts and speak to one another telepathically—bad news for sworn enemies. Occults spreading across Hartford, along with Candra and Ben’s mishap, are part of a bigger plan, one that neither the Lowells nor the Conways ever saw coming. There is more than one Ancient in their midst, and these primordial beings are lying in wait until Candra inherits her power. A power which hasn’t been seen in over five hundred years. A power which balances one of her enemy’s. These two powers combined can change the course of history. In order to survive a battle with the Ancients and protect their abilities, the Lowell’s and Conway’s will have to work together. Can they rise above their feud, or will they lose everything?

The Review: Rebecca A.Rogers has really out done herself with Black Moon. I thought Silver Moon was good but boy-she sure does take this book to a new level and totally raises the bar for the final book, Blood Moon.

Black Moon starts one week prior to Candra’s eighteenth birthday. While her family and friend prepare for the inventible night Candra is trying to keep away from Ben. But as a result of her family keeping her in the dark, she and Ben accidently become marked to on another, making Ben to seal the deal by kissing Candra. Now joined as one, Candra and Ben take on the mission to try and save everyone from Alaric but as more secrets are revealed an alliance with the enemy is the only way to win this war. But can their really be peace?

Black Moon was a great sequel to Silver Moon and although the story is a little shorter than the previous book, it’s still awesome nonetheless. It was action packed from start to finish and of course, this time around we see more ROMANCE! Ben and Candra really come together in this book and it was nice to finally see them together. I loved how protective Ben is of Candra, even to his family he really stands up for her and I loved seeing him do it. Now, Candra was more head strong is this book. With the fate of her family and friends on her shoulders, she really takes control and stands up to her family. They are trying to protect her but if anything, there just putting her in more danger and I can understand why they are trying to do it, but if anything–it annoyed me, so I’m glad that Candra stands up for herself….finally.
I also loved that we got to explore the more magical side to the werewolves this time around. We find out more about their powers, what each person can do and also what the enemy can do. I loved this added extra into this story and it makes it even more unique than ever.

Now the big bad aka Alaric is more evil than ever. With his evil plans to take everything away from everyone for himself, things are really looking bleak so I’m dying to find out what happens in Blood Moon. I really expect big things from the next book and I have a sneaky feeling that the author has some mind-blowing events that won’t leave us disappointed!

So……to 2013…..bring on Blood Moon!
