The Eye of the Moon is the second book in the Bourbon Kid series. I started reading it a few years ago because a friend gifted me the first book, The Book with No Name. She loved the book and thought I would like it, and she was right!
So, brace yourself for the review for The Eye of the Moon, spoiler ahead for the first book.
Nobody in Santa Mondega, a strange city in Latin America, forgot about the Bourbon Kid, the mysterious serial killer. But, since life still has to take its course, the city is starting to move on.
Santa Mondega and its inhabitants are about to celebrate Halloween, but that’s just the beginning of their trouble. At the same time, a task force is forming, trying to catch The Bourbon Kid. A mummy is starting to wake in the municipal museum. And someone was just kidnapped in the psychiatric hospital. When you think things would start going back to normal, everything goes to shit again!
As I said before, I was given the first book for one of my birthdays from a friend. She and I usually talk about gruesome stuff, like true crimes and everything. This is why, when she read this book, she immediately thought of me, and I’m so glad she did.
This series really has everything I love, blood, gore, mystery, and fantasy all in one. It’s really a pity that the author isn’t known because they would be in my top 5 favorite authors!
I also really love this series because it starts as separated stories from 2 or 3 points of view, and the characters slowly start getting together. I love those kinds of stories.
Should you read The Eye of the Moon?
Yes! If you love mystery book that’s also funny and has vampires in it, go for it. Of course, you should absolutely read The Book with No Name first. Otherwise, you might no get everything.
