First Full Moon
by Michelle Alstead
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: August 28th 2018


Summary

More secrets. More lies. I'm going to die.

She wanted a car for her sixteenth birthday, not magical powers… Candy McGregor is a teenager living in Sequim Falls, a small East Coast town, where the McGregors own just about everything. While her grandmother grooms her to run the family business—a pharmaceutical empire—Candy dreams of a life where she’s known as more than just a last name. When the monthly family dinner turns into a horror show, Candy discovers the McGregors aren’t so much blessed as they are cursed. At midnight on her sixteenth birthday, Candy inherits both the ability to do magic and the destiny to become a wolf on the next full moon. There is hope of a life that doesn’t require being chained up once a month. If Candy can undo the original spell that created the curse, she can rid the world of werewolves and remain a witch. But there’s one really big problem. Not everyone hates being a wolf. With the next full moon looming, Candy must take on forces that will do anything to stop her. Will she break the curse or surrender to life as a monster?




My Review
5 Stars

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this the idea for this supernatural story. Candy is turning sixteen and with this means she is to inherit the ability to used magic. (Yay! Magic!) Sadly, it also means the she will have to face the family curse on the next full moon. Unless she can find a way to break the curse, she will lose her magic and be stuck with it each full moon after.

This was a very interesting twist on the usual werewolf and witch stuff that I normally read. I enjoyed going deeper into the secrets of the McGregor family and getting to follow Candy through her journey of discovery. I do have to give Candy some props because she definitely handled this much better than I would have. I am a VERY impatient person and would have lost it with not being able to get clear answers.

While is does have its sweet moments this story doesn’t shy away from touching a darker side. I am left needing to know what happens next (can I have book 2 now??). This is a wonderful YA supernatural read that I recommend to any interest in the genre.
