In Erin Beaty's fantasy mystery-thriller, Blood and Moonlight, an orphan with a secret, magical sight gets caught between a mysterious genius and the serial killer he’s hunting.
Rising above the city of Collis is the holy Sanctum. And watching over its spires is Catrin, an orphan girl with unique skills—for she alone can spot the building’s flaws in construction before they turn deadly.
But when Catrin witnesses a murderer escaping the scene of his crime, she’s pulled into a dangerous chain of events where the only certainty is that the killer will strike again. Assigned to investigate is the mysterious and brilliant Simon, whose insights into the mind of a predator are frighteningly accurate.
As the grisly crimes continue, Catrin finds herself caught between killer and detective while hiding her own secret—a supernatural sight granted by the moon, destined to make her an outcast, and the only thing that might save her and those she loves from becoming the next victims...
Why did I add Blood and Moonlight to my bookshelf?
I won a copy of this book from the publisher and just haven’t had the chance to read it yet. It sounds fantastic and I have seen a lot of positive reviews for it. I like that the main character has a special ability, although one that is a little different) and the fact that there is a serial killer in the mix only makes me want to read it more. It has been on my shelf for close to a year so hopefully, I can get to it soon.
What are your thoughts? Have you read this book? Would you recommend it?
