Review: Moon Rise by Marilee Brothers

Moon Rise
(Unbidden Magic #2)

Author: Marilee Brothers

Publication Date: July 22nd, 2009

Publisher: Bell Bridge Books

Genre: Urban Fantasy



Her mom's still dating losers. Her boyfriend's gone back to Mexico. Dad still hasn't told his wife and kids that she exists. At school, the drama queens and bullies still rule. But worst of all for Allie Emerson--aka the Star Seeker of an old Gypsy prophecy--is that her powers have taken a hike. She can't read minds anymore. She can't move stuff just by looking at it. The other Star Seekers are counting on her psychic gifts more than ever, and the evil Tri-marks are closing in, eager to snatch her magic moonstone necklace while she's helpless. The hot new guy at school is ready and willing to fight her battles, but he comes with some wicked baggage. Dear Diary: I'm a little worried. My new BF is a demon. Welcome again to Allie Emerson's funny, scary, amazing, and always unpredictable life, as the girl voted least likely to save the world from evil.

 My Thoughts: Poor, poor Allie. Life hasn't gotten any better for her, not really. She seems to be a magnet for trouble, this book being no exception to that. That being said, I really enjoyed this book. It was just as good as the first book,  if not a little better.  You jump right back into Allie's life and get to see if things have gotten "normal" for her. Well, when you have telepathic powers, life can't be normal

Once again, we have Trimarks trying to steal the moonstone from Allie. Trimarks are really bad and they don't care who they have to kill to get the job done. If they get the moonstone, really bad things will happen. So of course, Allie can't let them take it. But, the Trimarks will do anything to get their hands on it, so how  can one girl stand against them?

There is a new love interest in this book, since Junior has gone to Mexico and opted not to come back. so we have Beck, the new guy in school, who has a lot of secrets of his own. 

This book was full of action once again. I didn't  really find that there were any dull moment and I had a hard time putting it down. The end was just so stressful and amazing, both at the same time. It is definitely a series that Urban Fanasty lovers should check out! It is really an enjoyable read!

Thank you to NetGalley for the oppertunity to read this book!
