Counting down the days to her eighteenth birthday, Lacey is almost home free. But when she falls for the mysterious Alex Morris, she lands in the middle of an ancient war between two enemy wolf packs. Tempting dreams, tantalizing lies and a dangerous love triangle ensues leaving Lacey heartbroken and confused. Lacey's fate rests in the hands of Alex and Brandon, but both are pulling her strings for their own agendas. Even as she slips further into the dark world of werewolves, Lacey struggles to find the truth and save the only family she's ever know.
The Crescent by Jordan Deen is the first in a new werewolf series, and as you all probably know by now I am a HUGE werewolf lover, in fact I do believe they are my favorite supernaturals out there. First of all, just look at that engaging cover! The first time I saw it I instantly wanted to read the book! I try never to judge a book by it's cover, but I just had an inkling that this would be a great one! The story is told through Lacey's point of view and although there were times that I felt she was not always aware of what was going on around her, I really enjoyed seeing her world through her eyes. I enjoyed Jordan's idea of pre-destined mates, and the foreshadowing we experience through Lacey's dreams of her and Brandon's future together were a pleasure to read. The immediate and passionate connection she shares with Brandon creates the perfect scenario for a love triangle, and the choice Lacey will eventually have to make will be a very difficult one. I just wish we got to see a little more of him in this first book. I loved Alex's character, we see a lot more of him and Lacey together and he always treated Lacey with respect, I especially loved the moment when he chose Lacey's safety over that of his own.
