Sometimes Heaven Is Overrated!
Challenges of the Gods proves a powerful
start to a captivating new series......
Falling in love isn’t the only
problem for Ava Hannigan.
When seventeen-year-old Ava discovers that she can breathe underwater, she’s disappointed. She wanted to be normal and dreads the day of her initiation into one of the most powerful covens of Elemental Enchanters. She has fallen in love with a human, which is forbidden, but she has such a strong connection with Peter, the only other person who knows what it’s like to grow up motherless.
Ava and her friends never expected to be caught up in the middle of a three-hundred-year-old war. Devon wants revenge against the humans for killing his master. Xavier, a ruthless witch, is building an army for Devon by spellbinding several students into becoming dark Enchanters. After Xavier realizes Ava and her friends are Elementals, Devon will stop at nothing to have their power. Xavier threatens Ava, attempting to coerce her to join them, but when she refuses, he kidnaps Peter. Now Ava must seek help from her coven to defeat Devon and accept her life as a witch in order to save Peter and protect the humans.
Taking a powerful blend of elemental magic and forbidden romance, Under A Blood Moon is the first book in a new fantasy series from author Carrigan Richards. Hot on the heels of Pieces Of Me, Richards proves again that she knows how to spin an enticing tale. Aimed at a YA audience she has created two highly likeable characters in Ava and Peter. Not delivering out of the box stereotypes, but allowing both room for growth as their burgeoning relationship develops. It’s certainly a well written book with a plot that quickly ensnares the imagination, but as with Richards debut novel her descriptive prowess is most notable. Her settings are well drawn and atmospheric; close your eyes and you can imagine yourself amongst the elements. Yes there are covens, teenage torment and the more fanciful manifestations that are popular with fans of the genre, but in Richard’s able hand it feels refreshingly unfamiliar as she continues to develop her distinctive literary style.
A genuinely enchanting page turner, Under A Blood Moon marks the start of an exciting new YA series and certainly suggests a blossoming career for author Carrigan Richards. Definitely deserving of your attention it is strongly recommended.
