I thought that the book was fairly interesting, with a good, well-thought-out plot and fleshed out characters. I enjoyed how the story progressed and the development. Could have done a bit better with some of the scenes. Overall, four stars!

Blood Moon Prophecy is a fast-paced ya fantasy with a mix of sci-fi. I fell in love with the characters especially Tilly who is forced to return to a world she had long ago left behind following her mother's sad death when she was five years old.

The narrative itself evolves and changes throughout the book, giving you plenty of moments that you had no idea what is going on. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, I was proven wrong. I can not wait for the next book in the series!

This was a book where I felt for the character I really hate Charlie and the stepmother. They made the unlikable character really unlikable I hope they get karma!

This book somehow gave me Harry Potter vibes while also being entirely different and having its only storyline. I guess it was the compounds, or potions, and the spirits that reminded me of spells that gave me those vibes. I do highly recommend this book to anyone that is a reader of fantasy, or a fan of Harry Potter, as it was a 4.5-star read for me. Honestly, it is a good book for any genre of the reader to dive into. It had some parts that were slow, and hard to get into, but once it got going boy did it get going. There were twists and turns and things I didn't expect at all during the story that kept me engaged and enticed me to continue to pick the book up throughout the day.

Blood Moon Prophecy is a fast-paced ya fantasy unlike any other that's been written! It follows our main character Tilly Nyx, who at sixteen is made to return to a world she’d long since left behind after her mother's tragic death when she was five. This initial instalment in the series centres around Tilly as she learns to navigate this world of magic, sailing and adventure while battling to solve the questions she has surrounding her past.

This book was an amazing mix of young adult fantasy and sci-fi that was blended effortlessly into a story unlike any I’ve read before with a magic system and world that both felt refreshing and new.

As for the characters and relationships, well I can comfortably say that Tilly and her friends are one of my new favourite additions to the found family trope! All of the main characters bring something to the story that makes it more enjoyable and had me extremely invested in their safety as the plot began to take darker turns. The entire dynamic between the characters was a joy to read and left me with a big grin on my face and excited to see how this will develop in the upcoming books.

The plot itself is ever-evolving and changing throughout the book leaving you with a lot of great ‘I knew it’ moments, as well as times where you just had to admit to yourself that you have absolutely no idea what is going on. Every time I thought I had figured out the plot I was proven incorrect and left reeling as new information was revealed and Tilly was sent scrambling to figure out another riddle from her past.

In the end, this book was a fantastic introduction to what I’m sure will be a much-loved fantasy series and has left me (not so patiently) sitting and waiting for the next book to be written and released so I can join Tilly and her crew on their next adventure.

This was a beautifully done scifi novel, it worked so well as a scifi-fantasy young adult novel. This was a great start to The Legend of the Nyx series, I was amazed to hear that this was a debut novel as it was really well done. The characters were interesting and well-written, I enjoyed getting to know them. I look forward to reading more in this series and from future books by Dilani Kahawala.

"Tilly inhaled deeply, her lungs burning as the fresh air hit them, fueling the fire that burned inside her veins. She pushed her palms out and focused her deep anger and frustration. “Dragonostra.” She wasn’t here to play. Today she was going to win."
