    good book :)

    First I would like to thank Books4Tomorrow and the author for sending me a copy to review this book. :)

    What is you were a typical woman, with a mother and sister who desperately want you to meet a man and get married (LOL I know these people), and one day in the park where you read, you meet the man, who happens to be your favorite author of your favorite books, who is gunna be the one to help you ascend into Goddess-hood? Yep, that sentence is how I can sum up the book without spoilers. Now, this one is a little different with the plot summary. Most of the soon-to-be Goddesses know at least something about their gift. Lilyana, aka Lily, has no conception of this... she kind of freaks out when she starts having these very realistic dreams with a giant white panther, telling her she is gunna save their world and become their goddess. BUT, there's always a but, you know, but she must finish her transition so she can leave earth and ascend in their realm. I felt that this was a nice difference as there is usually a happy ending for these kind of stories... However, there is a nice little cliff hanger at the end, and a maybe not so happy fairy tale ending... personally, I think the ending is perfect for setting up for the next book. :)

    The writing style is a little different but in a good way. And the characters are well rounded, but I would have liked a better back ground description. For example, why is Lily the way she is, especially when it comes to guys, and love, and relationships? And the only other flaw (I can't call it that, but I don't have another word to use) is in the beginning parts of the book, the "person" narrating goes from different perspectives. Normally I like that, but I was a little confused in the flipping quickly between Lily & the Oracle (&/or Elders)and some of the explanations were a little unclear... BUT, it then gets clearer as the story goes on, so you figure it all out. Maybe I shouldn't be all lazy and expect explanations right up front... there's no mystery that way right? LOL

    All in all, I liked this book, and I look forward to see what's going to happen, especially at the end with that nice little cliff hanger :) 3.5 PAWS for me!

    An exceptionally unique paranormal story

    The Blood Moon of Winter is an original story of a woman who has an unknown destiny in a world she believes is only in her dreams. At the same time she is experiencing what may be true love for the first time in her life. Lilyana is used to living by herself with the comforts of her morning coffee and her favorite books. But the possibility of being a Goddess of a strange unknown land turns her life upside down.

    The Blood Moon of Winter is an exceptionally unique paranormal story. An average, normal person waking one day to be a foretold savior of another world is such wildly different concept from the average book about vampires or werewolves.

    Courtney Conant has a very different writing style then I am used to. For me the non-vital parts could have had less description of every last thing the characters were thinking and doing. Or at least had more actions to fill the description. The heroine seems to spend an awful lot of time thinking about why coffee cups need rinsing and such. Conversely, I completely lost myself in the scenes where the heroine finds herself in the fantasyland. The action scenes are quick page turners.

    Also, the main characters seem to accept readily what normal people would assume is a crazy dream. The one person that Lilyana confides in accepts her story with very little convincing. This doesn't seem realistic to me unless, of course, this comes into play as part of a future story.

    For these two reasons, I gave The Blood Moon Of Winter 3 stars. Without them, it would easily have been 4 stars, possibly 5.

    This book does have a superb cliffhanger that I didn't see coming. With the promise of a sequel, it leaves you enthralled to find out what happens next.

    Conclusion:
    The Blood Moon of Winter is a fast read that is definitely worth checking out. With a suspenseful ending, I am eager to read more from this debut author.
