Review: A Tale of Lunarmorte Series by Samantha Young

A Tale of Lunarmorte Series by Samantha Young 


I was estatic to read this series by Samantha Young! It's a story about werewolves, whose origins are said to be related to Greek gods. The characters in this book are well-described, and they really shine with their respective personalities.

Caia was separated from her pack at a tender age, and when she returned 10 years later, she felt out of place and like she didn't belong. The male Alpha, Lucien orders for a pack running which is sort of a symbol that she is accepted and welcomed into the pack. 

Caia's ability to control water also intrigues me. I wondered who she actually is, but I knew the answers would be revealed, sooner or later, when someone finally decides to tell her about it. And when the truth is uncovered, I was both shocked and surprised. No, I didn't see that coming!

Apart from that, the interactions between Caia and the other lycans are well-written. The scenes are mostly enjoyable and interesting; I don't mind reading about Caia and Lucien all day long. I was heartstoppingly in love with Lucien and Caia from the get go, so much so that I felt the extreme feelings of anger with Lucien and Caia whenever something or someone tried to intervene.

Finally, Caia and Lucien come to terms with their relationship and accept their Mating. This happened a little too easily for me, but at least there was a bit of resistance on Caia's part. I like Lucien, but he's really dumb. As Alpha, he feels he can do anything he wants (which I guess technically he can) However, he doesn't really think about his actions and what they do to other's feelings, more specifically his mate that he's trying to win back. But like most guys, he's an idiot. 

 Lucien and Caia's love was so passionate and I felt my heart aching with them so many times throughout the series. I admit I wasn't a big fan of the reverse love triangle and was quick to become angry several times, but thankfully Samantha didn't put too much emphasis on it and I was able to get over it.

I loved the series from the beginning until the end, but I spotted some things that can't be left unsaid. First of all, spelling and punctuation errors. In the beginning, I had a little trouble juggling the different POVs, but I soon grew to love it, along with practically everything else.

Reading the Lunarmorte series was my first introduction to Samantha Young and I have not only read more of her books because of how awesome this series was done but I eagerly look forward to all her future works! 

Rating: 4.5/5

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves? 

No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.

But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

Swept into the world of the Daylight Coven, Caia is caught between her loyalty to the Daylights and her new insight into the hearts of the Midnights. As more obstacles are thrown in her and Lucien's way, Caia is pushed further adrift from him and Pack Errante. With no one to turn to, Caia has to make the most difficult choice of all...

Who does she truly belong with? The Daylights or the Midnights?

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

In the final installment of The Tale of Lunarmorte, Caia is caught between the most powerful beings in her world, and they are all desperate to use her for their own means. While Caia struggles to find her purpose, tragedy strikes close to home, and time runs out.
Now she must decide if she will join the extremists she was trying to destroy... or bring them all down on her own terms...
