Black Moon (Paige Tailor Series, #1)
"Am I losing my mind?"

Paige couldn't help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?

Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she's always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?

After having finished reading this I was left a little bit confused and annoyed. First let me say that the plot was great and I liked the idea of it. I also loved the cover! But I just couldn't get past Paige. She was extremely immature and mostly unreasonable. I understand that this is young adult but I think for my tastes it was too much so. I also didn't get what the deal was with Paige and Naialah...are they into each other? And I mean like INTO into each other? That's the way it certainly seems to me. The book for me dragged through the middle and one of the reasons why I thought it was a bit too young adult for me.


  1. Unfortunately, many YA books are written poorly and this one sounded like it had a great premise which was left unfulfilled. Books like that leave me frustrated that it was not the great story I imagined it would be.

  2. I beleive the author has great potiential. It was different enough to make it interesting and refreshing but I just couldn't get over the main character. She was such a brat.
