Four Moons #4
Genre: Urban fantasy, Series
So close to the end, yet so far away.
The world is approaching a new dawn. Trouble is, it ain’t exactly all pretty and hopeful.
No jolly sunrises here. Nothing but death, destruction, betrayal, and a shed-load of massive hurdles in the way.
Akira Murakami holds the hope, the key to ending the madness that has consumed everything. All he needs to do is get back to London to make it stop.
Easy as apple pie!
Step into a dangerous world with a deadly silver moon, enemies everywhere, and no time for baking. Okay, maybe a little bit…
The fourth and final instalment in the Four Moons series—a kick-ass Urban Fantasy tale with plenty of action, adventure, and a slow-burn MM Romance.
I love this series, and am sad that this is the last story for Aki and G, although very happy with the conclusion. Silver Moon didn’t let up with the roller coaster ride or the snark, and there were several twists I didn’t see coming.
The characters are fabulous, and as with Dead Moon, Gabriel takes some of the narrative POV. I must admit although I love Aki, G is my favourite character. I love how he adjusts to his new reality and the lengths he goes to to be there for Aki, and to help him save the day. Aki’s a wonderful combination of snark, attitude, and vulnerability. I love his stress relief baking, and how the author was able to sneak in him baking cupcakes in this story. Baking is his trademark as much as his katanas!
I liked Zak too. He’s lost so much, yet comes into his own and kicks arse alongside G, and plays a pivotal part in helping Aki overcome the nasty things done to him. I loved how it’s a combination of family and love that holds the key.
Bob and Rose totally rock as usual, and I thought their part in the elf plot was very sneaky and unexpected. Very clever, and nicely done. Even Aki’s dad ends up being much more than Aki thinks he does, and follows through on the hints shown in the previous book. I wasn’t expecting the way his part of the story ended.
I thought the final showdown was very exciting, and I liked that there were consequences for Aki, and that he didn’t escape unscathed. It added to the depth of the story, and his character.
5 out of 5 stars.
