Just months shy of her claiming at Carrowmore and fulfilling a centuries-old prophecy, werewolf Ashling Boru has stepped into her role as the Crimson Queen. She finally has the support of her pack and her love for Grey is stronger than ever.
But it’s not easy being queen. Ashling’s guardian, Baran, has been captured by the Dvergars, a family of evil wolves who will stop at nothing to possess Ashling’s power and destroy everything–and everyone–she loves. Ashling must unite the clans and build an army to stand against the Dvergars before it’s too late. Unfortunately, the Dvergars also have armies of the darkest creatures the world has ever known.
Shadows loom, growing ever larger as generations of pack secrets begin to unfold. Ashling’s people, the humans they protect, and Old Mother Earth herself all hang in the balance of Ashling’s choices. Will Ashling have to forsake her true love to save the world? And will she have the strength to do it? Bloodmoon is the thrilling conclusion to the Bloodmark Saga.
I chose to read this book after I received a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Ashling Boru has already been through a lot in her short life and is now the Crimson Queen even though she is only 17 years old. Her pack trusts her and any of them would gladly give their lives for her. She has a big job trying to unite the packs as well as uniting the werewolves with humans.
Ashling and Grey were secretly married in the Bloodrealms when they thought they were going to die. It is obvious that he is the one she will choose in Carrowmore when she turns 18, but because of werewolf tradition, they have to keep the marriage a secret until then.
Baran was left in the Bloodrealms at the end of the last book and Ashling is determined to save him from the Dvergars. Is that possible, though, after so much time has passed? With so many obstacles, will Ashling and Grey get officially married in Carrowmore? And most importantly, will she be able to bring peace to the werewolves and the humans?
Bloodmoon is action packed and the characters continue to grow. It is a good ending to a good trilogy and I’ll miss Ashling and her pack.
