My power could save my friends—or destroy them. As I start a new semester at Thunderbird Academy, I have a lot to live up to. News of my sisters' courageous fight against the Ancient evil has spread, and now, everyone expects the same greatness from me. But all I want to do is: 1) Find my dad. 2) Figure out why my magic has suddenly gone on the fritz. It would be a lot easier if I didn't have to keep dealing with the ever-annoying Aiden Lawson. Shifter, nemesis, ridiculously gorgeous. I don't care how he makes my pulse race, I will not be deterred from my mission. But the war with the Ancients is just beginning, and now, Thunderbird Academy has become a sanctuary as well as a school. Each attack is deadlier than the last, and when the academy ends up under siege, my friends and I have no choice but to fight. Am I brave enough to trust my magic to save us? Or will my world come crashing down around me by my own hands? I'm in a fight for my life, and I, Maddie Hawthorne, have no idea what I'm doing. Welcome to my year at Thunderbird Academy. Full of magic, adventure, and romance, Of Water and Moonlight is the first book in an addicting young adult paranormal romance series by USA Today bestselling author Valia Lind that will keep you reading late into the night!

Maddie is a Hawthorne sister and is known for performing a spell against the Ancients. If the stares of her peers at Thunderbird Academy wasn't bad enough, her dad is missing as well and Maddie will do anything to find him. However, her friends Liam and Kate haven't returned to the school because of the threat of the Ancients, leaving her alone. However, her new roommate Jade doesn't seem so bad and doesn't treat her differently like everyone else does.

Enter Aiden. He's a brooding shifter that seems to have it out for Maddie. She hates the pressure she's under because everyone seems to think she has it all together, even though she doesn't. Aiden calling her names like Duchess doesn't help make anything easier. To top it off, Maddie can't help but feel drawn to Aiden. Sure, he's gorgeous, but there's something else springing to life between them and Maddie isn't sure if she likes the distraction. As the threat of the Ancients begins to knock on the doorsteps of the academy, Maddie might have to rely on Aiden and her new friends more that she'd like to.

OF WATER AND MOONLIGHT is the first book I've read by Valia Lind so I did miss a bit of background information, but I still loved it. Valia does a good job at filling the reader in on what's happened in the past books so they don't feel left out if they start with this one. Aiden is so frustrating and sexy at the same time that I look forward to see how the relationship between Maddie and Aiden changes and grows. I love how there are all types of supernatural beings in this book but the prominent ones are shifters and witches. Maddie is also the best. She's so stubborn and strong which will be needed with the danger she faces.


Final Verdict: OF WATER AND MOONLIGHT is a supernatural paranormal romance full of action, betrayal, and magic. I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, paranormal, action and adventure, magic, romance, shifers and witches.
