While investigating her mother’s disappearance Crystal’s bloodline leads a supernatural council to hunt her down for her latent magic. Love, lies, and long buried secrets change her life forever.
Sixteen-year-old Crystal Dylan has been marked by the waning crescent due to her latent diviner heritage. The magic from her is a beacon to any nearby supernatural beings, especially energy serpents, vampires sent by the Divine Council to capture her. She never believed in the strange, the superstitious, or magical until she started looking for her long-thought-dead mother. Too many attacks on her aura have left her drained, dying, and vulnerable leaving Victor no choice but to try anything to help her, even the serpent’s kiss.
The Divine Council was looking for the lost heir, and Damien, a drawn class serpent, was their retrieval system with an agenda of his own. Crystal’s memories are being manipulated, and she struggles to find the truth about who she loves, what happened to her mother, who she is, and how to stay alive long enough to figure it all out.

This book frustrated me on so many levels, mainly because I was making my own scenarios and started liking some of the characters, only to realize nothing is as it seems, or at least how I thought it would be. That’s mostly why I liked it so much!
S.M. McCoy brings a new series, full of mystical beings and magic. “Blood Crescent” is only the beginning of something so much more. Our main character Chrystal’s life is turned upside down when she realizes her mother may still be alive. Oh, and she comes from a long line of people with special ties to magic. Well, what’s so special about that? We have the same good guy, bad guy stuff, we have a quest for self-discovery and her desire to find her family.
Other than that, we have an incredible writer! The world is built incredibly and the magic system is so complex, I even got lost at some point. And the characters are some questionable, other still under development. Because Chrystal is only at the beginning of her journey.
We have a love triangle, maybe. Because I am not sure who I like best, I am not sure who Chrystal likes and if she makes a good or bad choice in the end. What I know exactly is that I am not tired of her story and that I DO WANT more!
“Blood Crescent” is only the beginning and this universe holds the promise of so much more! I cannot wait to discover what we have next. For now, I’m giving it 4 stars, but I am 100% sure that the next installments will blow me away. In case of book 1, the beginning was a little slow and at times I was a little confused with everything going on. But other than that, I loved the book and I loved the main character! Enjoy !
