Low Red Moon By Ivy Devlin Published by Bloomsbury ISBN 978 1 4088 1398 0 Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels have spawned an entire genre of books hoping to repeat their success. Paranormal teen romances now have their own section in bookshops. Ivy Devlin doesn't stray too far from this winning formula. Low Red Moon is unable to decide whether it is a murder mystery or paranormal romance, but either way, it doesn't have many original ideas. Avery Hood is a bit of a misfit. She lives in a DIY house in the forest where her mother makes jam and her father hugs trees. She has no friends at school and doesn't see the modern world as other teens do. Suddenly, tragedy strikes: her parents are murdered. All Avery can remember is a sudden flash of silver cutting through the air as her parents were attacked. The rest is blank. Avery has to leave behind the home she loves, and learn how to deal with the terrible event that has shattered her life. Yet romance is just around the corner and we all know that in fiction, love can restore hope to even the most shattered life. Avery meets Ben, who is mysterious and handsome; she feels a connection to him that she cannot explain. Even when Ben confides that he is a werewolf, her trust in him grows. But one terrible moment, she sees the same flash of silver in Ben's eyes that she saw the day her parents were murdered. Does Ben know more about their deaths than he should? Low Red Moon will satisfy fans of the genre - but only just.
