Destiny’s Past, Book 1 Daughters of the Crescent Moon Trilogy,  Patricia C. Lee

Destiny's Past (Daughters of the Crescent Moon Book 1) by [Lee, Patricia C.]

Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy

I really liked the sound of this, but as does happen sometimes even though its a well written story, a great debut book it just didn’t really work for me.

I found it hard to be convinced of the story, and didn’t really connect to either Kelly or Jarek. That means for me the story becomes kind of mundane, I need to feel empathy with the leads and to feel “there” with them and I just didn’t. That’s just a personal issue though, I can see others are raving about this and that’s great for them, and as we all want different things from books its bound to happen. There are readers for every book, its choosing the right one that is hard, and though I thought this would work for me I was wrong.

I just felt like an onlooker, watching, rather than being in the story and even put it aside a few times as I felt myself not concentrating. Usually I get lost in a book, much to the dismay of those around me who get irritated when I fail to respond to questions – used to drive my parents mad, then friends, then husband and now its the kids. Luckily no 1 son is a reader like this so he understands 😉

Anyway, I’m not really sure why this story didn’t work better for me, its a fun plot and I was expecting to be sucked in to a riveting past/present mystery. I think maybe it was that everything seemed so slick, it was question – meet the answer, when what I need is question – what could have/who could have and why? I needed more twists and puzzles.
Add in that Kelly and Jarek just didn’t feel real and I guess that’s my issue. Still, remember that’s just me, this could be just what you’re looking for, and it has many readers who are hooked into the series already. For me its a book I’m glad I tried but won’t be looking for more from the series but I’d happily try a different one from Patricia.

Stars: Three, well written but not really one for me .

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
