Book Summary:

MOONLESS is Jane Eyre meets Supernatural. 
In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially later when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.
Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they are echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to
home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
I totally enjoyed this book from the very first chapter and it was just like a roller-coaster ride which didn’t bore or disappoint me for even a second. I liked the character Alexia and the way her world changed when the mysterious blue-eyed man stepped in her life and changed everything forever. The author did justice to the characters and the change in not only the makeover but also the emotional change that Alexia went through is really explained in a vivid descriptive way with the use of simple yet skilled words that gave the story a otherworldly feeling.
The mystery is dense and pulsating and with each page it grew more and more unpredictable and the slow revelations of the secrets of the mysterious man and of Alexia’s own life, surprised as well as shocked me. Kiren is drool worthy and oh so lovely. Power-packed action, heart stopping mystery, unpredictable twists and turns really spiced up the story and made it an intriguing read. A must and recommended read for ya all and hope that you all will like it as much as I did.
