The Story:

I've loved him forever, but he can never be mine.
Brittany is determined to prove herself to the Dark Guardians. And yet she's been keeping a devastating secret: She hasn't experienced any of the intense, early signs of change that mark a Dark Guardian's transformation. The only intense feelings she has are for Connor—and she's kept that a secret, too. But she knows she'll never truly have Connor's love if she's not a Shifter like him.
At the first full moon after her birthday, her greatest fear is realized: She doesn't transform. Brittany is so desperate to become a wolf that she'll go to extremes she never thought possible . . . and put all the Dark Guardians in incredible danger.

My Review

Plot:Dark of the Moon was my favorite out of the A Dark Guardian series! In almost all of the other novels in the series, the couples are both werewolves. This story is a bit different  . . . 

Dark of the Moon's pacing was perfect for the story. While the plot was not intricate or thrilling, it wasn't bland -- there were some tough situations, secrets, unrequited love, and more. And it was compensated for by the wonderful romance! A YA human girl-werewolf romance, what more could a woman ask for? The world-building was not spectacular or anything but it was enough to get inside the story. As for the overall writing, it Hawthorne's style was enjoyable. She conveyed the sentiments and Brittany's struggle with not being a Shifter 
was well written, the question of whether Connor's love was true was answered wonderfully. Those were my favorite aspects of the Dark of the Moon.

All in all, I greatly enjoyed Dark of the Moon. T
he A Dark Guardian is not a complex series or anything but it is fun, light and full of YA romance.

Character Breakdown:

Brittany
 - I loved Brittany's character. She was intense, fierce, independent and take charge. 

Connor - I will let you meet him for yourself ;)
