17 year old Erin Harris spends her time daydreaming, hoping to escape her small town life in Copperfield, Arizona. When a movie crew arrives unexpectedly to shoot a vampire film over the summer, Erin’s small town world changes forever. Erin is positive she has seen the star, James Linkin before in a thirty year old TV show. He hasn’t aged a day. How is this possible? Erin is determined to find out, but how will James handle the scrutiny of an all too intelligent teenage girl?
Under The Desert Moon was a light and fun read that took new spin on the vampire/paranormal scene. The main character Erin is mature and while “panicky” or doubtful at times knows how to keep her calm. From the moment James meets her he has a sort of instant attraction to her but she instead of falling instantly in love with him she acknowledged her attraction to him yet took the time to evaluate things. By not putting up with his arrogance and not letting his celebrity status affect her, Erin instantly became my kind of girl.
The book also has lots of adventure and that mixed with the romance makes for an exciting read. But not all is happy in this book, in a mere 211 pages, Meade manages to pack in some very real life issues. Erin’s father is an alcoholic and she dreams of the day when she and her brother Nick can escape him and the small town of Copperfield they live in.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting a story that mixes real life issues with a sweet, fun, and adventurous vampire/human relationship.
Oh and P.S. I love the cover art 🙂
