The Great Destroyer

Destroying books since 1999.

Under Witch Moon (Moon Shadows #1) - Maria E. Schneider First of all, I’d like to thank Maria for asking me to review this even though she knows I can be a major ass at times. I promise I’ll be gentle! Under Witch Moon starts as a fairly interesting book. We have two crazy women tackling each other in a desert of sorts, hints of werewolves, vampires, loads of creepy crawlers and a serial killer who mutilates his victims and who also might be a werewolf. Not bad.But then it gets boring. We get loads of talk and no action. Adriel is silly, immature and a major coward. She got on my nerves a lot and is totally not my kind of heroine. I love strong badass women not schoolgirls. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate the schoolgirl type, and I surely wouldn’t want it to be replaced by a pornstar *cough*GeorginaKincaid*cough*, but when reading an Urban Fantasy book I prefer to have a major bitch as a main character. That’s just how my mind rolls. As the story went on I felt that most of the events were unimportant, and I was confused most of the time. I felt like I was trapped into a maze, not knowing which way to go, what to do, where to look. I just wanted out. White Feather is the hottie of the series. He was okay I guess, didn’t really impress me. I felt that there was no spark between him and Adriel so their romance was insignificant to me.The second half of the book seemed to drag on forever. I totally lost interest and I felt like the book would be better if it was shorter than being filled with unnecessary details.So I guess that’s all. Maria, in order to make it up, I got you a really hot date. He’s a bit shy so don’t go too hard on him.
