What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

I thought that the hardest thing I would have to face this year would be Trial Month.

Gods, I was naïve.

My name is Luna Moon. Don’t ask me what I am, because complicated doesn’t even begin to cut it. I recently found out that
everything I knew to be true has been a lie.

Including who I am.

The goddesses and their chosen Guardians have been keeping a secret, and in the wrong hands, this secret would plunge our worlds into chaos.

We are the only thing that stands in the way of the realms’ greatest evil escaping his eternal prison.

Scratch that, I’M the only thing standing in his way.

Themis’ scales have tipped.

Nobody is safe.

Nothing is as it seems.

No one can be trusted.

***Author Note*** 
The Last Vessel is the first book in The Chronicles of Luna Moon series. This will not be your ordinary love story, for they are not your typical heroes. The Last Vessel is a medium-burn reverse harem intended for readers 18 years and over. It contains strong language, violence, and adult themes. 

The series also contains overbearing, overprotective, Alpha males who will try anything to keep Luna safe… 

I did say ‘try’, right? 

Thoughts on The Last Vessel

A wholly intriguing introductory novel that sets the stage for a unique world with creative rules. Some things feel familiar while many things don’t. It blends pantheons and mythologies, dipping here and there to craft a tale that ends in a cliffhanger.


  • The FMC. She’s fascinating and individually wrought. At times she’s strong, then other times so nervous or wary it’s cringe inducing.
  • Luke. Ok, so he’s not part of the guardian mix up…. but there’s something about that wolf that tells me he’s a major player.
  • Most books of this ilk do the big identity reveal as the climax. Nope, this got that out of the way at 50%, the rest is her dealing with it, with them and The Who Done It if betrayals past.


  • Not always sure about FMC, though I love her. Character inconsistent.
  • Felt like big points were rushed to or through.
