Moonflower (book review)
About the book:
After Josephine Wood’s father dies of cancer, her mother up-roots the two of them and moves to the city. Josie hates her city life, but her teenage issues are of little consequence when they have a car accident and she wakes up in a strange land (reminiscent of Victorian Europe) alone. Lost, with her school backpack as the only connection to her world, Josie struggles to find her way home. She is found by Lucius Conrí, the son of a Marquess, who possesses royal blood and the gift to shift into a wolf’s form at will. Can the kind-hearted Lucius help her find her way while winning her love, or will she fall for Donovan Conrí his older, more serious brother and heir to the Conrí wealth?
I have to start at the end. I just finished reading and I have to say I'm feeling slightly devastated. The last couple of chapters (and the very end) had me going "no no no no". I'm in no way saying the ending was bad. Actually... I think it ended rather perfectly. But... now it's done and all I want is to read more about Josie, Lucius, and Donovan. What's happening to them now????????
I guess my reaction just goes to say I became really attached to these characters. I absolutely feel more more Josie and Lucius... but I can understand the draw to Donovan as well. His serious demeanor really made it a little difficult to know him.
I want to immediately pass this book onto my 13 year old niece to see what she thinks of it.
