S. D. Grimms first love in writing is young adult fantasy and science fiction. That's to be expected from someone who looks up to heroes like Captain America and Wonder Woman, has been sorted into Gryffindor, and isn't much taller than a hobbit. Her patronus is a Red Voltron Lion, her spirit animal is Toothless, and her lightsaber is blue. She has been known to write anywhere she can curl up with her laptop and at least one large dog. She has been caught brandishing a wooden spoon in the kitchen while simultaneously cooking dinner and "head-writing" a fight scene.
She believes that with a little faith, a lot of love, and an untamed imagination, every adventure is possible. That's why she writes.â·¯Her debut novel was Scarlet Moon, the first book in the Children of the Blood Moon series. Learn more about her books at www.sdgrimm.com.
nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Exciting Pade Turning Fantasy Adventure Everyone Will LoveFebruary 5, 2018nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In "Amber Eyes" author S.D. Grimm has written a 460 page sequel to "Scarlet Moon" in her "Children of the Blood Moon" thrilling series. Book three, "Black Blood" is expected out in January 2019 and I am eagerly awaiting it.
These books are categorized as YA (young adult) fantasy fiction. There is no age limit on the entertainment and enjoyment readers receive from this series. Both young and older adults will immediately be drawn into the creative adventures author Grimm creates. The first book was a wonderful find for me. This one was even better. The author is so gifted that I found myself in the middle of another time and place. My emotions were raw. I was elated and saddened, joyful and frightened, and a multitude of emotions in between. What the well described characters felt, I did, too. I was in the story. It takes a great writer to accomplish that.
In Book One, "Scarlet Moon", the theme seemed to be love. Love for each other, the land and animals. Relationship love. It opened the day before Jayden was to be married. This book concentrates on choices, decisions and consequences. Doing things that make a difference no matter what happens is hard. Characters have difficult choices to make.
Ethan needs to release his revenge and use his gift as it is meant, but t what result? Serena must decide whether to heal people or obey the council. One choice will keep her safe but one will not. The Healers also have a choice to make: if they, too, will all aid the Deliverers or continue to conceal themselves. There is a lot going on with Jayden. It is time for her to accept her place as Deliverer, and not just a camp follower anymore. Thea is a very interesting and confusing character. Gifts play a big part in this book, too. All in all this fantasy world is in chaos, needs a Deliverer to help, and there are more to people than meets the eye.
Expect a page turning, twist and turn, action adventure book that you will not want to put down. Romance and relationships are mixed in with the mystery and intrigue. Animal lovers will be thrilled with the interactive parts and gifts written in this wonderful book. I wanted to devour it but at the same time did not want it to end. It definitely gets a 5 out of 5 star rating from me. I would recommend it to teens and up. Younger readers would not understand some of the relationship material or might be frightened. There is an abundance of killing in this. While it is a Christian book, it leans more Old Testament with the violence. It is an emotional roller coaster of a read. This would be a fun book club read. I definitely wanted to talk about it with someone who experienced it, too.
