I hate to leave too much time between books in a series, if I can help it, so here’s the second book in Penelope Marshall’s Silvermoon: Scent of Blood series; Gideon. If you haven’t read Rosaline yet, don’t read any further as it, obviously, contains mega spoilers!
Overall Rating: 5.5/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
When I said I thought that the second book would have more killer action, I was totally right. It picks up where we left off at the end of Rosaline, kissing the masked man. Surprise! It’s not William, so obviously there’s some drama surrounding a bit of flirty kisses and ‘our souls are connected’ statements, which kind of sets the tone for the rest of the novella. Action, drama, fighting, and star crossed lovers. The feistiest Romeo and Juliet I’ve read in a while.
One tasty tidbit that is brought up pretty quickly was what Rosaline’s parents knew, all along, about the world of vampire/werewolf people…were-pires? Vamp-wolves? Valves? Vampire-werewolf hybrids. There are s few reasons why Rosaline is being pushed so hard to be with good, old, Willy.
But that’s not all the drama. There’s still that wedding to William that’s around the corner, some deaths, jealous slighted lovers, disapproving family; all the stuff to make for a good afternoon read!
