The Daughters of the Moon are back and this time Catty is the main focus of the story. She was found by her adoptive mother when she was 6 years old wandering alone in the desert. She thinks she is an alien and wants to keep her safe from government agencies. In the present Catty is able to move backwards and forwards in time, but has never been able to go back far enough to see her birth parents. Things are about to change when a phone call upsets everything.

The police call saying that her mother has been killed and they need to organise her furneral. The first question is how do they know it is her mother when Catty has no memory of her. The next issue is trying to evade the mysterious three men who appear also trying to claim the body. Catty is approached by a mysterious man whose identity is unknown and who hands her a scroll that is said to destroy the Atrox for good. It is also said to be cursed and unfortunately it seems to be Catty's adoptive mother who is suffering. The Daughters must battle a new type of foe and help Catty discover her past and the identity of the scroll bearer.

This was my favourite in the series so far. Catty is a great character and the story was fast paced and stood out from the previous three. It does seem however that none of them can date as the boys are rarely what they seem!

I have the first book in this series checked out from the library but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. I'm really looking forward to it though :)
