I’ve never been a fan of FF books, but I am a fan of Poppy’s and this book was totally worth going out of my comfort zone for. Alandra has such a crappy life except for her sister Laney, but even Laney doesn’t get how bad things are for her. Enter Luna. I really, really liked Luna. She’s unexpectedly pulled out of her world yet manges to take it in stride. She has the perfect mix of worldly experience, child-like wonder and serious bad-ass power with being the moon. I love how she stood up to the jerks in Alandra’s world. I love how Alandra made mistakes but kept trying and never gave up, despite how much she wanted too. She was a very real, relatable character.
Character development and world building was up to Poppy’s stellar standards. The concept of living celestials is very well developed and unique here, it’s not a regurgitation of anyone else’s version. It’s well written and well edited also.
This book hasn’t changed my feelings toward FF books. The steamy scenes made me uncomfortable enough I contemplated giving this a 3 or 4 star rating. But, as stated above, they were very well written, and to take off stars for something I wasn’t a fan of, and knowingly went into, would have been unfair to the author. It wasn’t a deal-breaker and it was such a good story overall that I know I’ll read it again.
If you’re like me and prefer your FF to have an M or 3, don’t let the lack of M’s stop you. You’ll be missing out on a great story of love, overcoming serious negativity, redemption and ultimately
