You little . . . ! You spilled raspberry fruit goo on my Alexander McQueen top! This was one of that last pieces he designed before he killed himself!” Molly looked desperately down at the large spot spreading over her neckline and glared at Henry. “This piece,” she said, her voice trembling with indignation, “is a treasure . . . or at least it was a treasure.”

I consider this a spin-off of Witches of Eastend. But I liked it better. Great books. Had a good Blue Bloods feel to it.

I was so excited when I saw that this book was coming out. I have read most of the Witches of East End series and have really enjoyed them, so I was very excited that a "teen" version continuation of this world was going to exist. Though, I was also a little worried too. I wanted the feel of this one to match that of the others. I went in with high hopes, and when that happens it is so easily to be disappointed. Thankfully, that wasn't what happened. Triple Moon is the story about sisters, twins to be exact: Molly and Mardi. The twins are no ordinary girls. In fact, they are both goddesses. Their father is Thor, the Norse God of lightning. Molly is the polished, sophisticated one. She loves clothes and dressing up in expensive pretty things. Mardi prefers torn jeans, has tattoos, and a tongue piercing. The two can't be more different from each other and it shows in their interactions. They can barely manage to get along for longer than a couple minutes at a time. The two girls love to use their magic to pull pranks on those in the world that are normal. They can't help themselves. From messing with the color of someones hair to making people physically ill, they find it hilarious and fun. Needless to say, they are a bit spoiled and don't really understand that their actions have consequences that go beyond them. In this story, the girls are sent off to East End to spend the summer baby sitting for their fathers friend Ingrid. This is meant to be punishment. They had a wild time at a party where two mortals ended up dead and all signs are pointing to them. While the twins deny any involvement, there is a small problem. Almost the entire night is blacked out and they can't remember what happened no matter how hard they try. So for the duration of the summer they are sentenced to spend it in quiet East End babysitting, working, and trying to figure out what exactly happened that fateful night. So...I totally ended up devouring this book. I just couldn't get myself to put it down unless I absolutely had to. It.was.that.good. I was not disappointed at all. I got to see my favorite characters from the Witches of East End series (Ingrid was my favorite and we get a lot of Ingrid!). We get to meet more characters. And we get to learn more about this fantastic world. From very quick research, it appears that Melissa de la Cruz took some liberties with Norse mythology, but that should only bother huge mythology buffs. She changed a couple of genders here and there etc. So just be warned that if you know your mythology you may find yourself a little irked with the freedoms that were taken, but please don't let that ruin the story for you. There is also a bit of romance. It can get a little intense at times, but it never really crosses the line where it becomes totally inappropriate for teen to read. It does get a little steamy, but it is actually just a bunch of making out. I really enjoyed visiting the old characters. Quite a few make an appearance, but most notable are Ingrid and Freya. They are background characters, so don't expect too much from them if you are already a fan of them from the previous books. But you do get to see them, so yay! Find the rest of my review here:

Remember the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, and the ensuing Bloodlines series? VA was pretty good, maybe the plot got stretched a little thin, but in the Bloodlines series the plot DEFINITELY got stretched too thin? That's this book. Witches of East End was a pretty solid series, but Triple Moon really was just...unnecessary. None of the characters were particularly interesting or distinctive, but I kept reading because I like de la cruz's writing. See more reviews at my blog!
