M is for Moonless by Crystal Collier


So my 'M' post is a book I have been wanting to read but after reading it was kind of let down.  I think because for one I don't read a lot of fantasy/sci-fi books, and two it was rather confusing. (At least for me.) She claims it's Jane Eyre meets Supernatural.

Moonless by Crystal Collier is a fantasy sci-fi book that follows Alexia a young sixteen year old girl who starts to go through some changes. Overnight Alexia wakes up and is suddenly beautiful. As we follow her journey she starts to see things, a strange girl who is going around killing people, a handsome man that seems to be the bringer of death, and shadowy red eyed figures that are called the Soulless.

So for one you find out that Alexia is what's called a 'Passionate' a super human race that is more beautiful and loves harder than regular human beings. First of all... passionate.... really?  It doesn't sound like the name of a super human race I bet there is a better word out there. Two Alexia immediately falls in love with Kieran the guy she thinks is killing everyone. She's sixteen and ready to give up her entire body and soul to a man she just seems drawn to. It was hard for me to get though it. I guess because I was left scratching my head throughout the whole book. Some parts were pretty exciting but most of the time I was sort of just confused.  I think this book with a little more tweaking could be wonderful. I really did like Kieran's character, but I am partial to ginger type love interests.

MOONLESS is Jayne Eyre meets Supernatural!

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they’re echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.

Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
If you’re looking for a young adult, historical, paranormal romance or all of the above involving fantasy, action, adventure, mystery, things that go bump in the night, time travel, blued eyed hunks, super powers, and creepy children (…sorry no kitchen sink), AND if you love books by Cassandra Claire, Stephanie Myers, Charlotte Bronte, Dean Koontz, or Jack the Ripper, this is the book for you!

  1. I actually really liked Moonless but I am struggling to get through the sequel right now. It's just not holding my attention as much. But I love Crystal! She's awesome!
