"Stars. Fire. Blood. Magic.
One night long ago, a constellation disappeared and fell from the sky in the form of a boy.
Secrets are being kept in the sleepy town of Lakewood Hollow, Colorado. Nothing but pools of blood and dripping words are left where bodies once were, and no one but Calum Wade seems to be worried. Life unfolds in shades of red for Calum, until a mysterious girl named Kate Black enrolls at his school and everything changes. Suddenly a dangerous world of dream demons, elemental enchanters, and blood witches unfurls before Calum. He learns that the stars have forever held his destiny, and that the constellations above are much more than what they seem. As Kate and Calum sink deep into a paranormal war, they realize that an ancient prophecy might hold the answers they seek. But life is not so easy for Calum, and he can feel his heart beat faster whenever Kate is close. Worse, Kate's blood holds a dark secret even more dangerous than the war between the demons and enchanters. Soon the two find that there are worse things than loving someone you shouldn't. For Calum and Kate, even love and the fiery power of stars may not be enough to break a curse as dark as the blood that binds their destiny.
A romantic story of true love and dark curses, LIGHT OF THE MOON will leave you breathless."

Taking me beyond what I thought, I really liked this book!

I'm going to talk about something I don't normally talk about. The words. This author has a way of writing words so beautifully and woven together its likes poetry. Many times, I found myself re-reading lines cause I just adored how wonderful it was written. You can really tell that he took his time writing a story and that is not dumbed down but carefully written. The prologue itself took my breathe away. The plot of the book is magical. A curse going on for generations of these characters can stop it. I love how the plot is interwoven beautifully with constellations!

The love interest in the book is what I thought it be. Two people forced on paths with imaginable obstacles that they must face. One light and one dark, I'm interested in seeing if their love will be strong enough to last. 

And that is why this book is good. An unlikely pair in the midst of a long standing war draws m,y attention. It's solid, flowing beautifully from word to word.  Painting a magnificent picture that is believable and breath-taking, Light Of The Moon shines!

I give it 4 BITES!

 Happy Reading!
