I really wanted to like this one. I did. I LOVED the rest of the series. It was heart wrenching and honest and had amazing characters. The Shade of The Moon however, fell completely flat for me.
Jon grew into a completely unlikable character. I honestly couldn't stand him, and as the story went on I liked him less and less. Even when he was trying to redeem himself.. I just didn't care. For me to enjoy a book I also need to at least kind of like the the character. They can have faults sure.. but there was pretty much nothing I liked about Jon anymore.
It was awkward for me to go from an entire series that focused on Miranda to her barely being in the story at all. I feel like the story took a completely different turn that left me, and probably other readers thrown for a loop.
The story felt like an unneeded addition to a series that was amazing as it was. I pretty much wish I had stopped at book #3 and let myself believe that was how it ended. Most of the time even if I didn't love the series, I push through to finish it so that I can see how it all wraps up and what happens to the characters. I really wish I hadn't with this one.
I definitely recommend the rest of the Series. But I would pause before reading #4 :/
I hate rating a book 1 star, But that was my honest opinion of the book. I understand that everyone has the right to a difference of opinion, so if you read this book and enjoyed it please feel free to say so in the comments.
