Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.

My Thoughts: I honestly really liked this book. I mean it wasn't the best or anything but I did finish it without stopping. I loved the plot, it was different than what you would most likely expect. Avery is not your typical high school girl. All her life she has been home schooled by what seems to be the best parents ever! Her parents let her go to a public high school, which makes Avery stoked until she realizes it was not what she expected. Then one night Avery is found sitting next to both her parents, while they lay dead. She doesn't remember a thing. She just remember seeing the police carry her parents away. That's when she realizes they are dead. It was fun reading this book. It really felt like I was there. The author did a great job with details. Everything Avery felt was described perfectly. I knew exactly what she meant. Then comes Ben. When they both see each other for the first time, its like love at first sight. But Avery doesn't know what she feels. She can't really described it. When she thinks of him, she doesn't think he's hot or sexy. Those are not the right words. She describes him as beautiful. And I kind of felt like I was reading Twilight again. Just for a moment! When she sees him, she thinks that HE thinks she's a freak. Just like everyone else in school. But throughout the book, they get close. Ben is mysterious and little freaked out himself. He doesn't remember the night Avery's parents died, but he knows he was far away from the house. He is very trustworthy. In this book, werewolves can make a human do whatever they want them to by the sound of their voice. Ben told Avery to go home in the beginning of the novel, but she refused. That surprised Ben. I love how she told him he wasn't the boss of her, and she could do what she wanted. I wish I could actually see the shocked expression on Ben's face. But the only thing that REALLY annoyed me was the way Avery acted towards the end of the novel. SPOILER. The way she thought Ben killed her parents. After all he's done for her. He truly loves her and I cannot believe she tried to pin the murders of her family on Ben. I know she was confused but still! He would have died for her. SPOILER.

I'm going to rate this book a...

4.0
Why?
Because Avery's actions toward the end was quite stupid
But the novel was VERY romantic
And there is a HUGE twist at the end :)
I absolutely LOVE Ben
Also, the Author did an awesome job with details
