Night Shade - Lynne Ewing

Rating : 3.5/5
Number of Pages : 275
Series : #3 Daughters of the Moon
Format : Teenage fiction Novel
Reason for Reading : 999 Challenge, to continue with the series

The third Daughters of the Moon novel centres mostly around Jimina and her power of premonition. Her serious boyfriend Veto was killed a year earlier by being on an enemy gang's territory. His funeral was a closed casket and when he appears out of the blue to Jimena she wonders what really happened. Is he a ghost, has he been in a witness protection programme or is there some other explanation. Unfortunately the reality is worse. He has been brought back by the evil Atrox to try and break up the Daughters of the Moon.

Cassandra is one of the Folowers of the Atrox and has been gaining more power recently. She is not yet immortal, but has had audience with the inner circle and has been granted the ability to go back in time and change one event. Karyl and Morgan are helping her and Jimena has a premonition of Cassandra pushing Veto into a massive chasm in the earth. Stanton warns Serena causing her to reveal their secret relationship. Vanessa is having trouble with her boyfriend Michael and Catty just wants a boyfriend. Jimena also has to deal with her emerging feelings for Serena's brother Collin.

This has been my favourite in the series so far. I think it's because of the girls I like Jimena the most. She is tough and gets tempted to go back to her old gang ways which somehow makes her the most down to earth of the group. I look forward to the next in the series which looks to follow Catty next.
