Review by Sue Ellen
I decided to review this novel because I fell in love with the cover, but once I started to read it I enjoyed the concept of what was written. This is one that can be read for YA and up and will keep you entertained throughout, even though there are some spots that may have been slow but I think every novel needs it to build up the story. It had a little of everything including mystery and definitely twists because if you think you have figured it out watch out the author throws you another piece to unbalance what is going on. What I liked about the series is that this being the first it can be stand alone but is building a much bigger picture for the next one in line, which I look forward to reading. I’m not going to give you any spoilers because you can read about what it is about in the sypnosis, but I do want to tell you what I thought of the characters. While reading this I was able to sense what some of the characters where feeling which kept me wanting to read more, because a reader/book link to me means that the author has a natural talent of reeling you into her world. I have to say while I liked Emily, I think I preferred Theo better because of his passion to protect and cherish those he loves and cares for. Also I enjoyed how the author introduced to us the other paranormal creatures and what angle they may feature in future parts of the series in order to stop what the main plan is. I also thought the characters where well written and attributes. I recommend this for anyone that likes paranormal and a mystery/slight romance mixture because that’s what your going to get in this one.

Pat Spence is a freelance writer and ex- magazine editor. She has worked as a copywriter in advertising agencies, a freelance trainer teaching personal development and a massage therapist/aromatherapist. She is married with a daughter, and has a degree in English Literature.
‘Blue Moon’ is her fictional debut, a supernatural love story about a strange family, with an ancient secret, who arrives in an English village to renovate an old manor house. When local girl, 17-year old Emily Morgan, falls for the glamorous and mysterious Theo, she is forced to change every perception she has ever had about life, love, aging and death. This is the first book in the ‘Blue Crystal’ trilogy, which takes its inspiration from the Victorian classic ‘She’ by Rider Haggard, a story about eternal youth. In our current youth-obsessed society, the theme seems more appropriate than ever… ‘True Blue’ and ‘Into the Blue’ are to follow.
