Review: Half Moon (The Crescent, #2) by Jordan Deen

"I’d been a fool for coming here with them, and now... no one would come to save me. The world that hid in the shadows of humanity was full of enemies."

Faced with death, Lacey Quinn ran away from the only family she’d ever known.

That... was just the beginning.

As the decision she’s made sinks in, Lacey struggles to fit in with the pack and find the key to bonding with her werewolf soul mate, Brandon. But, lies can only be concealed for so long.

Adjusting to a powerful new best friend, a twelve-year-old roommate with a nauseating Barbie fetish, and a lost love that won’t stop haunting her dreams, she knows she has no hope of having a normal future—ever again.

After a long talk with the dead mother she never knew, and an almost deal-breaking night out with Brandon, Lacey starts spiraling into the underworld—a place where all things are possible and everyone is out to kill her.

With mysterious legends of witches and sorcery marring her past and clouding her future, she quickly learns—werewolves aren’t the only ones lurking in the woods...waiting to claim her powers for their own.

The Mares? Well, they are the least of her worries.

The mystery and action started in The Crescent, but it must by the year for sequels, because this one proved by far to be even better than its predecessor. Half Moon has it all! The romance and chemistry makes you anxious for more. The tension and action will have you on the edge of your seat dying to know what will happen next. And the ending...while I was thrilled in some ways, Jordan managed to lay out more unanswered questions for her readers that will have me biting my nails until I get some answers.

With The Crescent we got to know Lacey and Alex pretty well. But for some reason despite Deen only giving us glimpses of Brandon I fell hook, line and sinker for Team Brandon. And in Half Moon I got my wish - we get to know him this time around now that Lacey has escaped with him and the rest of the Amanas, his family and pack. I really enjoyed the details readers were given in regards to Brandon and the rest of the pack.

Lacey's still trying to play catch up and figure everything out that's been dumped in her lap, but she's not alone this time. She's got a new best friend who rocks, Brandon will do anything for her and the Amanas are trying their best to point her in the right direction. There are a ton of obstacles, lots of pressure and even more doubts creeping in, but it's also a fantastic journey to experience! I loved it all and once again can't wait to see what happens next in Full Moon, the final installment in The Crescent series.

I gave Half Moon (The Crescent, #2) 5 shamrocks!!!!!
