Authors: F.M. Sherrill and Becca C. Smith
Length: app. 280 pages
Publication Date: July 7, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance


Synopsis:
Shea Harper is forced to stay in boring, hot and dry Phoenix, Arizona for college. But once she meets the enigmatic yet positively egocentric Lucian, Shea’s life changes forever. 

She finds out that she comes from a long line of descendants called Vessels. In her soul is the key to destroying an ancient prison protecting the world from darkness itself: Lucian’s father. 
Up until now, Lucian has captured every descendant except Shea. With her powers awakening, all vampires want to drag her down to the pit. But Lucian is territorial. She’s the first female Vessel… and he’s convinced she belongs to him. 
Saucy and tauntingly surprising, Black Moon captures the struggle between burning desire or denying the heart. This is a love story that will drain you dry.

About the Authors
F. M. Sherrill
Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:
F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.
But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A.. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.

Oh Yeah!
So, I really liked this book because while it had the things that go bump in the night these creatures are not exactly like those we read about all of the time.  The dynamic between the characters is constantly developing and redeveloping, and the dialogue is at times downright humorous.
Black moon is an interesting look at myth where good and evil is evident, but as the lines begin to blur things get interesting.  Shea is a strong young woman who has a tendency to speak her mind.  As the story progresses she finds out that her life is not what she thought, and her best friend is more than just a good looking man.  College might just be more than she bargained for, and every day presents her with new unknowns.
Happy Reading!
