Guest Post by Emily Walker

This Saturday we are having something a little different, Emily Walker from the fabulous Self Publish or Die Blog has very kindly agreed to do a Guest Post Review.

Thank you for having me Bella.
The book I am reviewing today is a YA paranormal novel by author Robin Waldrop.

Ties to the Blood Moon
Robin P. Waldrop

Buy it now from:


Genevieve is a teenage girl who moves in with her aunt in Alaska after the death of her mother. Soon after her arrival she learns the things she was raised to believe only existed in fairytales are in fact a big part of her history. When it gets to be too much she seeks refuge in the arms of her new boyfriend, William, only to find out he's not who she thought he was either.

Meet the Author

Robin P. Waldrop hails from Miami, but lives in Alabama with best friend, business partner, and husband John. She is a mother of five, grandmother of five, and owner of a variety of different animals. She is an award winning author who enjoys writing edgy YA paranormal/Urban Fantasy, and FBI suspense/thriller novels and short stories. 


I knew going into Ties to the Blood Moon that it was a YA novel. So I was prepared for the teen angst and the instant love everyone always criticizes. If you remember being seventeen though, you could fall in love in a class period. That being said I thought I had the book figured out, and I knew what was going to happen. I was totally wrong. By the time I had gotten into the meat of the story I didn't know what to expect next or who to trust.
I enjoyed the twists that the author put into the story. There was a lot of action and some suspenseful times. Some may think that there were some hasty life decisions made on the part of the protagonist, but you have to take into account that she is seventeen, and hot headed. The main character is not a think before you act type person and that shows in the choices she makes, but she means well and the lore of the creatures in the story and the twists keep you captivated enough that you want to know what will happen next.
I think the YA genre is perfect for you Robin and you captured the story of a seventeen year old thrust into a strange new world beautifully.
