REVIEW:I’m usually not one to read and review a complete saga as a whole but I had a blast reading this action packed supernatural series. Silver Moon follows two star-crossed lovers from beginning to end, trying to find away to fight the curse that was created so long ago. I really enjoyed how Rogers brought the readers into this series by introducing the original werewolves and where it all started before introducing the two main protagonist.
Silver Moon Saga follows Candra Lowell who is sent to live with her aunt and uncle far from home. She thinks it’s punishment for getting in trouble too much but it’s actually because of a long time family secret. She discovers her family is tied to a werewolf curse and that the town she lives in is full of them. But not only that her family is at war with a rival pack, to which she builds a connection with Benjamin. Ben is the only one who doesn’t treats Candra harshly and together they try and find a way to break their curse and stop an evil that started back in the 1500s.
Candra is a character that has ups and downs, a lot happens to her all at once and she has to grow up quickly. She like most people I feel would do is be curious, she wants answers and will get herself in some sticky situations to get them. I enjoyed the journey she goes through and how in the end she has to make some pretty tough decisions along with Ben. I really enjoyed the bond she has with Ben, together they want the same thing and can’t seem to stay away from each other no matter what danger it causes for them and their families.
Ben has lived a life knowing what he is unlike Candra and at the beginning has a hard time staying away from her. I liked how he picked her up from school and that they would sneak around, it showed that they were destined right from the start. His family is one crazy bunch and of course his biggest obstacle. It was a bit hard for me to connect to him until about half way through the Black Moon, and then he grew on me. But even more so in Blood Moon where he won me over.
Overall this was a great series with a lot of story telling. I feel its necessary for the readers to read the first story for Alpha Moon since Candra and Ben do go back and have to discover what happened during that book in the 1500s. I liked how I was taking back and remembering what happened and the suspense started all over again hoping the best for the leads. My only issue was with Candra’s family I felt that as much as they wanted to protect her is actually cause more unnecessary problems. The villain is in all the books, his presence adds to the suspense and I really had no idea how the duo were going to stop him. Also the last book had some sexual content that I felt wasn’t needed, I like the steamy moments but some of the stuff felt out of place from the other books.
In the end, I liked how everything wrapped up and it was such a great adventure to follow two people who were so right for each other. I was actually shocked with the ending and felt it was such a great twist, even better than the ending of Black Moon, which was great! I look forward to more books from Rogers and was glad to step into this unique werewolf tale. If you’re looking for a story full of magic, romance, betrayal, secrets and curses then this saga is a must!
RECOMMENDATION:This is an young adult novel with minor sexual content in the final book. Fans of Chloe Neills Chicagoland Vampire series and The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater will enjoy the Silver Moon Saga

Rebecca expressed her creative side at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. She won’t hesitate to tell you that she lives inside her imagination, and it’s better than reality.
In short: I’d insert something here along the lines of living in the Northeast or Europe with my wonderful husband and our dogs, but these things haven’t happened yet. Instead, I’ll tell you I’m an avid gamer, chocoholic, coffee addict, animal lover, and own way too many books and shoes.
