Avery Hood is reeling from the loss of her parents--and the fact that she can't remember what happened to them even though she was there.

She's struggling to adjust to life without them, and to living with her grandmother, when she meets Ben, who isn't like any guy she's ever met before.

It turns out there's a reason why, and Ben's secret may hold the key to Avery finding out what happened to her parents...

But what if that secret changes everything she knows about--and feels for--Ben?
Low Red Moon is a heartbreaking story that explores Avery's grief all the way throughout. It's a different and a new twist into the idea of werewolves. I wouldn't really say this book would be 'paranormal romance', more like a 'werewolf romance'. Devlin creates a creepy and eerie atmosphere full of a mysterious plot, a romantic relationship, and a bit of a paranormal theme.

Although mysterious and paranormal, this novel was way too much on the romance and Avery's-grief side. Devlin focused a lot on Ben and Avery's relationship and Avery's grief the whole time. She spent too much time telling us Avery's grief. I understand that Avery was at a loss, her parent's just got murdered, she was struggling, but Devlin could have moved on and stopped with the grief, and explored more on to the paranormal genre, instead of just focusing on the grief and romance.

Devlin was superior at conveying Avery's grief. She succeeded in describing Avery's emotions. It really came through in this novel and I felt as if I was her sometimes. But, this novel to me was a bit rushed and sudden. Devlin just throws in other problems or other parts that were happening. It was very intense, making me want to know more and keep reading, but, at the same time, a bit confusing.

Avery was really emotional and was struggling, she was having a hard time getting over the fact about her parents death. Her mind just stopped, it cracked, bursting out all the emotions. As day by day went on, it got worse and worse because she was trying to piece up what had happened at that night. Ben, on the other hand, was very alluring and mysterious. He was really attracted to Avery and I felt that he was attached to her too quickly.

The chemistry between Avery and Ben was very fast paced and intense. Though, it was very sudden, I got used to their relationship. It was also a bit unrealistic to me. They both were very attracted to each other and was 'in love'.

Devlin stirs a book with a lot of new twists, drama, and action. It wasn't the best it could be, it could have been better. Even though this wasn't a 'wow', I still look forward more of Devlin's future novels because she has great potential as an author.

I was a little disappointed in this one. The romance was too forced for me - they seriously didn't even know each other.
I did like the mystery aspect to the story.

Great review - thanks!

Just a fun little fact but Ivy Devlin is a pen name for Elizabeth Scott.. so I can see why it was a little more focused on relationships and emotions. Great review, I enjoyed this one but I agree, it wasn't a WOW read.
