Blood Moon by Teri Harman
When Willa and Simon meet, it is like a homecoming, the sudden sense of belonging with each other. As they become closer, they slowly reveal their secrets to each other and find that it is one more thing they can share. The stakes become higher when Willa senses that someone is being held in captivity. She sees a slender woman, chained to a basement wall who is being slowly tortured. Against all odds, she discovers the location and she and Simon manage to free the woman. That's when their world collapses, what they called normal never to return.
For Simon and Willa are witches, as is the woman they rescued. The Blood Moon is coming soon, the only chance for a witches covenant to be formed. The Dark Witches and the Light Witches are vying to see who can collect the requisite number of members to form the covenant, and both sides want Willa and Simon to join them. They will have to make a decision which side they will fight on and their decision will impact their survival.
Teri Harman has written an engaging first novel in what will be called The Moonlight Trilogy. YA readers will relate to the young protagonists and paranormal readers will be interested in the storyline that pits Good against Evil. This book is recommended for those two categories of readers.
