Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber

Ellen Schreiber may sound familiar to the vampire fans, for she is the author of the bestselling Vampire Kisses series, but don’t worry guys, we’re not talking about the vamps in this post. Ellen has decided to have a little vampire break and has penned a young adult werewolf novel titled Once in a Full Moon.

Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend’s Run is famous for them. She’s used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend’s Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.

Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who’s from the wrong side of town. But she can’t deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste’s hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend’s Run.

Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.”

While I can see a lot of teenage romance fans loving this plotline, I can’t help but be put off by the book description. I mean, it sounds a little too cheesy and tween friendly to me. Judging by the reviews I’m not the only one to think this way, most of her old fans seem to be pretty disappointed by this one. But since I trust your judgment better than those on Amazon, I’ll ask your opinion. Have any of you read it? If so, what did you think?

  1. Hmm. Well, I do agree that the plot is a bit immature. Sounds a little like a repeat of Twilight… except a version in which Jacob gets lucky. Hahaha!!!
