Amelia Pivens Kreutzer is a natural witch that deals with much after she sees her mother brutally murdered. Her father takes her to London, never realizing that something much stronger works against Amelia.
Detective Denny Carlisle is called in when someone steals Amelia’s father’s body. He wonders did her father have enemies. He knows during All Hallow’s Eve, the city is always full of mayhem.
Amelia sees her mother die in front of her, then later witnesses the same with the untimely death of her husband which sets off some truths of which Amelia was unaware. A group of fundamentalists wish to wipe out any practicing of the Craft and as a natural witch, she must watch her every step. In a short time, her father dies. Then his body is stolen which means calling in the police. Enters Detective Carlisle who believes it could be someone with a grudge. After Detective Carlisle leaves to do some more investigating, she is certain it is not the last she has seen of him. Even the fundamentalists known as The Organization are watching her every move. With so much at stake, she begins wondering who she can really trust especially when the Full Moon will soon be out. More importantly, she begins to question should she get even with those who caused the death of her mother, husband and father?
Blood Moon is a story that engages the reader. This is the first book in the Witches Moon series that flows with witchcraft and a stirring amount of friends that one must decipher if they are loyal or enemies in disguise. There were times that I could share in Amelia’s sorrow and pain, especially with her losses. Throughout it all she stands tall and strong not once backing away from what she believes. A. W. Gryphon instills a touch of mystery, intrigue and a wonderful main character that is intelligent in all her actions. I like the way she sketches Amelia. She weaves some roller coaster turns keeping the reader abreast and on their toes throughout the pages. I found the story quite fascinating.
