The feisty daughter of an Alpha Werewolf adds complications to her life when she defies her father and disregards his plans for her future in the paranormal novel, The Awakening: Book 1 of the Bloodmoon Wars (A Paranormal Shifter Series) by Sara Snow. Elinor is the oldest child of the Alpha of their werewolf pack, and to her, that is a curse. Not being a male, Elinor can't become the next Alpha or join the Guard and protect her people. Unfortunately, the responsibility of being the next Alpha belongs to her seven-year-old brother. On the other hand, Elinor is expected to mate and become a Luna and bear a brood of cubs. However, Elinor still hasn't found her mate and isn't inclined to look for one; conversely, she finds herself attracted to a vampire. Will she obey her father and mate a respectable Alpha? Or will Elinor defy him and reap the consequences?
The first book in a new enchanting series, The Awakening: Book 1 of the Bloodmoon Wars (A Paranormal Shifter Series) by Sara Snow, is a spectacular shifter story. Brilliantly written, the stunning novel has appealing characters and a fascinating plot charged with a sense of romance and suspense. With her independent nature and her mischievous conduct, Elinor's character is vivid and beguiling, making her likable as well as relatable. From the first page, the storyline flows smoothly between the protagonists' thoughts and views until it comes to an unexpectedly abrupt end. Although it does come to a startlingly sudden conclusion, the book is wide open for a sequel. Far superior to Stephanie Meyer's Twilight novels, fans of shifter and vampire stories will be delighted with this series!
