Review: The Blood Moon of Winter by Courtney Conant



When the survival of a world is at stake, what choice is there?
Lilyana searches for the answer in the thrilling new world she has found herself in. Choosing between what she already has and what is needed will be the hardest decision she will ever have to face. Lilyana Makay, a young woman who prefers to be alone with a good book rather than spend time with others, finds herself in the middle of quite a conundrum. She is the reincarnated Goddess of the land of Makayra, yet this fact is completely unknown to her.
Lilyana has never wished for anything more in her life, but life has other plans. When she finds herself in this new world, she comes across an albino panther who helps to bring about her awareness of what and who she truly is. Only passion and experiences can awaken the sleeping Goddess within, not all of which are enjoyable. Lilyana must dig deep within herself to see if she can handle what is to come.
She is the only one who can save the dying land. Yet, to do so, she must leave all she has ever known. She must choose whether her new found love is enough to keep her from performing a duty that has been thrust upon her. Playing the role of Goddess might be more than she bargained for.

Lily was just another average young woman but one bite suddenly changed her entire life.

After the incident, Lily has no idea when something mysterious appeared in her life. Even when she was taken to new world made and meet the guide. It had happened many times but I felt like she did not get connected to it. Her past even her memories never revealed about it. Once I was desperately looking forward to it. Not only about that stuff, one thing that make me wondered and knitted many questions such where this book would take me. Because I almost read more than 100 pages but found no great intrigue . Thanks to my big curiosity.

I was not that into Lily. But I enjoyed all chapter which told me about her relationship with her sibling, Taynia. I almost cried a tear when something changed between them. In the end of the book, Jason was another character that make me curios.

The Blood Moon of Winter is a quick and light reading. None of the words or phrases inside that made me confused. Although it's new for me and felt a little bit weird about the whole ideas in this book, I found it interesting. Before reading this book, what I kept in my mind about the goddess was only linked to the Greek myth. The process of becoming the goddess in this book also absorbed my attention. I liked the way Courtney created and determined her own way about it.

I was little bit sad when I was in the last page. I thought I would find the ending. I just knew that there will be the second book. I hope I can get the chance to read the next series of this book. I want to know what will happen to Lily, to her family and absolutely her favorite author.

Cover:
I never thought that Lily's tattoo would be drawn that way. I was thinking that it surrounded her body only so it could be hidden. I wish I could see Lilyana closer.

3/5
