Everyone around her has all the answers to what is going to happen to Gen, but Gen. Secrets fly and a realization surfaces that this is not a normal town. She meets William at school and there is an instant connection between them. She feels safer than she ever has when he is around. But things start to change for her and she slowly learns that there are greater things planned for her. She just wants to be a normal teenager but is she going to be able to be one once everything comes out? Will she become what fate has planned for her? I enjoyed reading the story. Ms. Waldrop was able to pull a teenager into the world of, it’s time to grow up and the realization that not everything is at it seems. I plan to read more of her books as I enjoyed this one and I’m looking forward to the next story.

I really liked Ties to the Blood Moon. It is pretty similar to other werewolf and vampire novels, but still different to be its own story and not just a "its just like BLANK" novel where you can easily compare it to another. I can compare parts of it to other books, but definitely cannot compare the story as a whole to another book. I really liked how independent Genevieve's character is and that she doesn't wait around for others to catch up, she goes after what she wants. I didn't care for William that much, and i understand why Robin Waldrop made me feel that way. The ending was completely unexpected and i never saw it coming. Sometimes it is good to guess and be right, but it is way better to just be surprised. Overall, very good novel.

Ties to the Blood Moon is a quick and fun read. It has everything - action, romance, plot twists, mystic legends and strong characters a YA audience can relate to. Set against an exotic Alaskan landscape, the reader gets immersed in an exciting adventure as the main character, Gen, makes one surprising discovery after another. The author, Robin Waldrop, leaves you looking forward to the next installment and anxious to find out what will happen next.

What an awesome novel! I read this novel as a review request from the author. I am so glad that I got the request. I may or may not have read the novel on my own, but regardless, it was very well worth the read!!!! Genevieve is forced to move in with her aunt in Alaska because her mother is killed in a devastating fire.She decides to attend public school to help her escape her grief of losing her mother; here she meets a close friend and 2 boys she can't keep her mind off of. The adventure that ensues as Gen fulfills her destiny is both mysterious and thrilling! I have seen some reviews that compared this book to Twilight. They both take place in Alaska, have a hot vampire, a steamy werewolf & a girl that loves them both. That is probably as far as I would make the comparison. Robin Waldrop is a brilliant, creative writer, and she has twisted together a tale that surprised me at every turn - not at all predictable. The elements of myth & legend that relates to the werewolves and vampires is enthralling - the Adlet princess coming to take the throne in order to save the Adlet clan - bringing peace between the different clans. The writing style is so unique, and very descriptive - providing just the right amount of detail in order to feel like you are present in the story, yet not too detailed to lose the story itself. Each character has it's own uniquely evocative characteristics that give them an authentic feel. Gen has so many dimensions about her - an innocent young girl who was faced with her mother's death, coming of age - becoming interested in the opposite sex for the first time, and an internal struggle with accepting the destiny handed to her. Both William and Joseph are handsome in their own rights, and have facets to them that make you want Gen to draw to both of them. I was totally drawn to this book - the attractive cover inviting me in - the title creating that mystery that needs solved. The easy to read writing of the author makes this book a very delightful and quick read. This one is among the top books I have read this year. I have already shared the title with friends and colleagues & hope that others find this review helpful.

I really enjoyed this book. It was very fast-paced and difficult to put down and walk away from because there was always something important happening. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Genevieve and William. There was enough action to keep me on the edge of my seat, and enough romance to keep my heart happy :-) The storyline of vampires, lycan, shapeshifters and hybrids is a refreshing twist on the normal vamp/shifter books. I'm looking forward to reading the next book!

Ties to the Blood Moon is filled with intrigue, mystery, romance, and loads of action. Written in first person, via Genevieve’s point of view, we experience her turmoil of losing her mom and moving to Alaska. Moving, however, is the least of Gen’s problems. Soon she learns about her destiny as the leader of werewolves. Each day she feels like things are changing…little does she know that she is growing stronger and turning into one of the most powerful creatures ever known. Gen is brave and sometimes foolishly fearless. She is loyal to a fault, always attempting to protect those who are supposed to be watching her back. This flaw lands her in trouble more than once. To claim her position among the wolves, she will have to defeat Zane – evil incarnate. To do this, Gen and her friends must find a hidden crest which will bring challenges and changes Gen never expected. Gen convinces her aunt to allow her to go to school where she meets Luna, Joseph, Joshua, and James…four siblings who quickly become involved in her life on several levels. She also meets William, a mysteriously stunning boy who she falls head over heels for. Can she trust him? Hmmm… I adored this mix of mythology and fantasy. Robin weaved a unique and intriguing tale of werewolves, vampires, and destiny. A point never came that I wanted to put Ties of the Blood Moon down. It captivated me on page one and captured my attention through the very last page, leaving me wanting to know more…immediately. I highly recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance, in particular, those who love one-of-a-kind stories starring Werewolves.

I just finished Ties to the Blood Moon by Robin P. Waldrop. In this action packed YA action romance, Gen moves to Alaska after her mother dies in a house fire. She lives with her aunt Bev, whose concerned love quickly becomes oppressing. When she starts her senior year at the local high school, Gen meets William, a gorgeous young man shrouded in mystery. Gen also meets Luna and her three ...brothers. Her new friends help her deal with the news that she may be a lost heir to a mystical royal family. Ties to the Blood Moon is fast paced and has an interesting plot with lots of twists. The teenage characters have appropriate reactions to their changing world. The main character does seem to cry in nearly every chapter and that got a bit tedious, but she was adjusting to a rapidly altered life. Detailed character descriptions get you involved with the characters. It was easy to get drawn into this story. I loved Gen, the main character. She is strong willed and independent. Her relationships with William, Luna, and her brothers added another layer of intrigue to the tale. I really enjoyed the close friendship that Gen and Luna shared, it is nice to not have the entire book focus on the love interest. I would rate this book at 4/5. A good editor would have made this a five star. I look forward to the next book in the series, as the cliffhanger ending left me wanting more.
