Chroma Crossing Chronicles: Blood Moon Part 1 by S.Yurvati
“Hunky pheromone-laden-man meets pretty accident-prone female—it should have been a love story with a happy ever after ending. However, when the bored deities choose Candy and Thorne for an amusing game, the gods/goddesses put forth sets of circumstances that can tear the couple apart and wound them deep within their human souls.
City girl, Candy wanted to become a successful artist and maybe someday find a man who would make her feel loved and valued, a feeling she’d never known while growing up. However, with a name like ‘Candy Cane’, males never failed to remind her with a wink and snicker, how it sounded like she was a ‘professional’. And ‘professional’ held so many connotations, none of which she had in mind regarding relationships with men. With her father’s sudden demise, Candy finds she’s inherited funds and a carriage house in beautiful historic Savannah. Not only can she now afford to go to SCAD, her future as an artist looks promising. Unfortunately her step-mom (and her disturbing son Todd) resides in the main house. When Candy gets her first commission for a life-sized portrait of a beautiful woman from a rather unsettling man, she soon questions what had seemed coincidental. Candy is a modest female who has always found solace in her artwork, whereas her widowed step-mom, Cherry Ann, considers physical pleasure and money as her measures of worth. And as Candy pursues her art, Cherry Ann pursues a new lover who expands her world of sexual gratifications far beyond past parameters. Cherry Ann finds her new risqué sex life to be addictive and doesn’t recognize the danger of the man she’s invited into her life. After surviving a couple of ‘accidents’, Candy realizes someone apparently wishes her harm.
When she’s chased (by the one thing she fears most) Candy accidently, or so it seems, crosses into a new dimension, land or whatever. She finds herself in an unknown wilderness without resources, let alone a map, or GPS, plus she left her cell phone at home—again. Looking around she sees a curious terrain that is void of color, thus leaving the landscape looking like an old sepia photograph, hardly the Savannah spring day she’d left behind. The artist in her wants to understand how primary colors could disappear to leave a land so colorless . . . so entirely beige-ish. How could such a phenomenal occurrence come about? A land without modern conveniences- almost as though she’d stepped into a time past, yet that wasn’t quite accurate either. As Candy literally stumbles through the wild terrain, an intriguing hunter comes upon her. His presence makes her girlie parts beg to become ill behaved, and before she knows it, her hormones are arguing with her strict moral compass.” ~ Book Description from Amazon
First off I want to say I LOVE this book being set in Savannah. I use to live in Savannah so it almost felt like I was walking around with characters. I like where this book is going…. I will say DO NOT start reading this book unless you are going to jump straight into part 2. This is exactly what it says: Blood Moon Part ONE! In this part of the series we get very well acquainted with the characters but don’t even hit what is suggested on the back cover or in prologue until the last 60 pages. Talk about a cliff hanger… Some of the content in this book actually gets quite graphic. The torture and sexual type. This could possibly be a trigger warning for some people? But at the same time you kind of know what you are getting into with vampire/demon bad guys… Not even sure if THAT is what Mark is yet. He is definitely not human though. Either way, the content of this book is ADULT ONLY that is for sure. I liked the very normal, every day person style of writing. Made it easy to follow, enjoy, and read fairly quickly. This book was entertaining even though it is just the introduction to the saga. It was entertaining and shocking enough to give it 4 stars for the time being.
Going to leave my review here for now until I read Blood Moon Part 2, which is on its way. I’m excited to see where this story goes and will have a better update at a later time =)
Stay tuned guys because this review is totally going to be a two-part special.
