Lunangelique is one of those books that once you start to read you can't stop! A fast reading, with some funny situations, an interesting story and a lovely romance this book also has the perfect ending to leave you wanting for more. This book might seem similar to other stories but it has some points on its favor that makes it unique. It has some clever twists and a fast rhythm which is perfect for those who love a good rush of emotions.
Alexis (Lexi) is a 17-year-old girl, in her senior year, intelligent, athletic and a bit of an artist. Alex, her twin brother, is more intelligent that most kids. As most twins they are very close and complement each other. They are two outgoing kids, with a group of friends that are having fun as any other teenager.
When a hot guy becomes their new neighbor everything in Lexi’s life is put upside down. Cole will bring a new Lexi to the surface and will help her undiscovered her past and also will introduce her in a new world. A world where the unthinkable is true, a place where mythology is more than just part of the History books.
The characters have their highs and lows. Cole is amazing, I totally adore him specially because is very different to most boys in YA novels. He is possessive sometimes but not in an extreme way. He takes care of Lexi in a natural way and he isn’t the one pushing the situation.
Lexi is a really strong girl. She is not afraid of speaking her mind and, in my opinion, is her personality what put her in danger. She is annoying sometimes, especially when she is mad at Cole. She is frontal all the time but when she is upset she acts like a 5-year-old.
The rest of the cast is a good complements. The bad guys (that you wouldn’t picture as the bad ones) have scary personalities. Lexi’s friends are a bunch of sweet girls but only Kaitlyn has a bit of relevance. Edmund… what to say about him? He is an interesting character. At the end of the book we see a side of him that I personally didn’t like, he seems like one of those characters that I will end up hating.
The story behind Lexi and Alex biological parents is simple to understand. When you use this kind of elements to create the background you always always run the risk of only add more facts and names that will confuse the reader. However, Kristin does a great job uniting few elements and creating a good solid plot, simple to understand but really interesting to read.
It has a great ending, one that will bring tears to your eyes and will leave you waiting for the next book.
