Today I will give a requested review of Fire in the Blood(Last Moon Rising) by Dale Ibitz.
Blurb: On Eyidora, the gods of nature are at war, and Earth is in chaos. During a home invasion, seventeen-year-old Haley is tumbled to Eydora. Alone, afraid and confused, Haley just wants to go home to Earth…but the gods have other plans.
With her stone of power, Haley must stop the war…but two men stand in her way.
Haley’s forced to make a choice that will decide the fate of all the worlds. But who should she trust, who should she fight, and who is the one with fire in his blood bent on betraying them all?
My Review: I love the concept of the globes or worlds being related and the war between the gods causing the global climate change on all. Haley, a descendant of these gods has been on earth for her protection and knows nothing about the world to which she is born; till on her seventeenth birthday she is transported there just after receiving a important stone. With this stone she is charged to help put the globes back in harmony. Not knowing who she can trust she lands herself in plenty of hot water before the end of the book. While it is obvious that there will be more of this story to come the author does a good job of ending this one while still leaving
you wanting more. I am looking forward to reading more. I did have a problem with the author’s need to try to give such over the top descriptive phrases. Some like gazes sliding down their noses and warmth trickling down their legs made me laugh and it was not a funny part of the story. So threw me out of the plot. I do feel like this book could really benefit from a good edit. For editing I give it a 2 Story line I give it a 5 execution of story I give it a three. Over all I give it a 3 and hope the writing and editing improves with the next books because I am looking forward to seeing what becomes of Haley.
