Title: Black Moon
Author/Authors: F.M. Sherrill & Becca C Smith
Series: Black Moon Saga
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Red Frog Publishing
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print
Blurb/Synopsis:

Shea Harper is forced to stay in boring, hot and dry Phoenix, Arizona for college. But once she meets the enigmatic yet positively egocentric Lucian, Shea’s life changes forever.
She finds out that she comes from a long line of descendants called Vessels. In her soul is the key to destroying an ancient prison protecting the world from darkness itself: Lucian’s father.
Up until now, Lucian has captured every descendant except Shea. With her powers awakening, all vampires want to drag her down to the pit. But Lucian is territorial. She’s the first female Vessel… and he’s convinced she belongs to him.
Saucy and tauntingly surprising, Black Moon captures the struggle between burning alive with desire and castrating the heart. This is a love story that will drain you dry.

Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:

F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.

But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion on a promotional book tour. Review is as follows:

This was a pleasant way to spend a few hours in the evening.  It takes the vampire tale and gives it a nice, hard twist, melding it with other mythologies and ancient stories. I do admit that Shea bothered me some and came across as a tad whiny, but she is only seventeen so that should be expected. Lucian and Aiden are interesting and in the midst of this complex, ages-old, love/hate relationship that is at once understandable and frustrating.

Good action and a plot that kept moving, I read this quickly and my mind kept trying to jump to the conclusion. There were moments where you really empathize with what it must be like to be Lucian or Aiden, a moment where Shea's pain is palpable, and the story just keeps pulling you along. I hope there is more in this universe, especially with how it left off!
