What did I think about it?

This is the second book of a Teen/Young Adult series called “The Raven Saga”. As you all may remember me saying before:

teen/YA books are not my choice of reading material.

I almost ALWAYS find them tedious, frustrating and it becomes increasingly challenging to care about the characters.  


December Moon is a wonderful story.

I really like Suzy Turner’s writing style. It’s beautifully written with enough action, mystery and romance to keep me reading. I know this is a series aimed at young teens so expected the “Disney-esque” emotions and neatness of the plot. Yes, this is the middle book in this trilogy but the Happily Ever After feelings once again end this part.

Keep reading to find out more about Suzy Turner. But first, here’s some info about this engaging trilogy.

About Suzy Turner

Author - Suzy Turner

Although Suzy is a Yorkshire lass at heart, she left her home town of Rotherham, UK, to move to Portugal with her family when she was ten.
The Algarve continues to be her home, where she lives with her childhood sweetheart husband Michael and their menagerie of cats and dogs.

Suzy's career began soon after completing her A levels when she was offered the position of trainee journalist for a local English newspaper. Her love of writing developed and a few years later she moved on to become assistant editor for the region's largest English language publisher. Since then she has also worked as the editor of one of the Algarve's most loved monthly lifestyle magazines. Early in 2010 however, Suzy began working as a freelance writer and author.

She has since completed seven novels and one novella for teens, The Raven Saga and The Morgan Sisters series. She has also published four chick-lit novels, Forever Fredless, And Then There Was You, Stormy Summer and Aphrodite's Closet.

Suzy Turner also writes under her pen name, SG Turner.
