The Stanton/Serena angst I can't take it anymore!
This book's plot idea in general-good.
The way it was carries out-*cringe*.
Romantic angst is fine is small doses, but two whole books about it in the same series about the same couple is WAY too much. The plot seemed to serve one purpose make Serena even more confused about her feeling about Stanton and bring her closer to her dark side. There was no other purpose. the plot wasn't even what held the book together. It was the romantic angst between Stanton and Serena.
I like Stanton, but if I have to read another book like this I may just give up and start banging my head against the wall and give up. Basically Serena and Stanton's love life is like a bad version of Romeo and Juliet-if you want feuds watch "West Side Story" it's about three thousand times better.
Another problem was everything was so freakin' obvious when it came to the plot-ever heard of subtly. All the other Daughters' relationships are second to the plot and that's how it's suppose to be unless you're writing a romance novel then it IS the plot. But this is a grievance.
We already had a book dealing with romantic angst between the two: It was "The Sacrifice" remember and it was better! Much better!
But reading this book was a bit like plucking out my arm hairs one by one. I actually paid attention in math class (not that it helped) instead of reading this book which was a first.
Here is my thoughts on the series so far: the second rotation through the DoTM was no where near as good as the first. I hope if we go through a third that it's better.

I think this book is the best one so far.. All of the other books i have read of Daughters of the moon haven't been like this one since the book The Sacrifice. I think in this book you get to understand Serena more.. What happens in this book is this.. Serena runs into this old lady runs into her and she makes her drink something...She wakes up and it is night time.. She keeps on passing out should I say. This car keeps on following her... She is just getting freaked out.. Jimena comes over so she makes sure she doesn't do anything.. Serena has a dream and well she thinks it is so not really and well she thinks that if she hurts her self that she will wake up. she wakes up and she know now that it was really.. So they go see Stanton and Serena freaks out on him so she says that when they see each other they will be enemies.... Oh and Jimena has been working on her power and so she can get a vision any time and she sees Serena and Stanton fighter together to fight off bad followers and another one that you will find out.. Oh and you know how they have two choices now Serena has three and they are...1 to lose her powers and her memory of what she once been. 2 disappear and become something else like a guardian spirit perhaps.. But now, unlike the other Daughters Serene had a third choice. She could become a goddess of the dark and be happy and be with Stanton... what will she chose. What will happen. DUDE READ IT

Format: Hardcover
Possession begins with the myth of a young woman who bethrothed herself to the Atrox, Ursula, whose famous beauty was so reknowned all who looked at her felt blessed. But her unlucky fate was already decided at birth, when she was born clutching a jewel in her fist. Her peasant father rushed to the castle to get a priest, and when they returned, the jewel had vanished. Such was her fate; "all good would slip through her fingers". In the present day, Serena Killingsworth, a Daughter of the Moon, is struggling with her life. Stanton, the guy she once loved (and still loves, though she won't admit it to herself) has betrayed her by becoming the Prince of Night. Her heartache is so heavy it is like a constant stone crushing her chest. She hasn't been sleeping or eating well... She dreams about Stanton visiting her at night, and though her line of clocks on her dresser is unmoved, these night visits still unnerve her. In the beginning, she is racing through the post-school crowd, she escapes the guy who is crushed on her, Mr. Wrong (Jerome) by cutting through an alleyway. There, she accidentally bumps (more like smashes) into an elderly woman. Serena is knocked to the ground. The woman uncaps a bottle and forces a strange brew into Serena's mouth. Serena blacks out and when she wakes up, it's nighttime. Soon she starts having nightmares, strange thoughts, and starts acting like a completely different person some of the time. It's frightening her, and her friends. What's going on with Serena and who was that woman!?

Have you ever been in a situation were you have to choose between the two most important things in you life that you LOVE? Well, that is how Serena Killingsworth feels. From the Series of "Daughters Of The Moon", I personally think this was the second best book written. (The first best was Book No. 2, also involving Serena!) Anyways, Serena starts having really wierd dreams where shes visiting places and finds evidence that's is true! Serena tries to recall the last thing she did before this problem happened, which was when a strange woman by the name of Aura gave here starange fluid to drink. Days later, she finds out that the concoction she was forced to drink was a special potion so the strange woman can abduct her body. (I know, this book reveiw sounds totally srange *LOL*) Anyway, Serena then finds out the onlt reason the woman is taking over her body was because she wan't to get into her boy-friends mind (Stanton, He is soooooooooooo cute!) to get her boy-friend out which happened to be the evil Lambert. Unsuccessfully, Stanton cannot stop Aura and Lambert is free. The only way Lambert can be defeted is if Stanton Joins power with the Key, Serena. I don't want to say toooo much, but that is was a GREAT book and I hope you all get a chance to read it! ...
