Review: Two Moons of Sera by Pavarti K. Tyler

[Note: This review is on parts 1 and 2 of Two Moons of Sera]

"In a world where water and earth teem with life, Serafay is an anomaly. The result of genetic experiments on her mother's water-borne line Serafay will have to face the very people responsible to discover who she really is. But is she the only one?"

What would you do if you spent your entire life alone, fending for yourself, with no one to talk to but your mother? This is how part 1 begins, with Sera as a "monster", part Sualwet, part Erdlander and accepted by no one.

You never know what you don't have until it teases you.
When she finds Tor, she longs for physical contact and to share her life with someone. After becoming friends, soon Tor and Sera find themselves in a war, thrown into the world Erdlanders having to either blend in or stand out and take the consequences.

The imagery that Pavarti creates is gorgeous. A life blended between land and sea, the intensity of books and pages, words and poetry. Sera's webbed toes standing out, digging benieth the sand, scarred and torn from running, Tor's scars all over his body as you long to know more of the story that Pavarti hints at. She makes you feel everything.

I found the characters easy and believable. Afterall, how would you be if you lived in the wild, fending for yourself all of your life? You might be a little crazy, a bit on edge and hidden just as Tor was. I know that if I was kicked out of my homeland I'd be a bit bitter, hurt and shut down as Sera's mom appeared to be. Although I'm not sure I could ever live like Sara or Tor, you get to see how you might live if you were to grow up in their situation.

Part 2 of Two Moons of Sera took a turn I didn't see coming with an ending that left me wanting more. My only complaint being the abruptness of the endings. If you're looking for a good, fast paced book to read with a different paranormal approach, this book is for you.

My rating for this book:
