Beware of a bite under a full moon…
it will complicate your love life.

Celeste has more to worry about than a secret romance with a hot guy from the wrong side of town. That guy, Brandon, is a werewolf. With gossip and hostility swirling at school, it’s time to find a cure for his nocturnal condition, and perhaps the one person who can help is his scientist father. But what if a “cure” makes things worse and Brandon becomes a werewolf full time? And with rumors circulating that there are werewolves in Legend’s Run, is it possible that there is another among their classmates?

To keep Brandon’s secret safe, Celeste must hide her relationship with him from her best friends, but with the Moonlight Ball approaching, she must make a choice. Her dream is to go with her one true love—Brandon. But once the sun goes down, the clouds separate, and the full moon appears, could she really walk into the dance on the arm of a werewolf?

In this installment of the sumptuously romantic Full Moon series, Celeste faces her fears and her friends and finds out whether she’s strong enough to stand up for herself and her one true love.

You should… –  Buy/Burrow it

Reason for Reading – Author, Series, Topic

Judge the Cover – Love the covers for this series, because of her face inside a full moon. I really hope that change it because it’s what caught my attention to the books.

A Little Teaser  She had been correct about the readings she’d given me before but wrong about who the werewolf really was. I yearned for answers to Brandon’s condition and anything that might help him. But his father would be coming to town and I trusted him more than her.

Review – I fell in love with Once in a Full Moon, and was really looking forward to the sequel. Magic of the Moonlight was a great, easy read as well. It leaves off right where Once in a Full Moon ends. I really need to check out the Vampire Kisses series from Ms. Schreiber because I really love her writing!

A little warning… there are a few spoilers up ahead! Do not read if you don’t want to ruin the first book.
Okay so the ending of the first book was pretty big, because Nash, Celeste’s ex-boyfriend sees Brandon transform into a werewolf. Now in the sequel, Nash is using this information against Celeste. Nash wants her to be with him and to stay away from Brandon because he’s dangerous. If she doesn’t listen to Nash, he will tell her friends that Brandon is a werewolf.

But from what I could tell, Brandon is like one of the nicest werewolves I have ever read about. And he’s handsome too. When he transforms it’s not into an actual wolf, but half-wolf/half-man and he’s really hairy. He’s changes colors as well. I never thought I would like a hairy man, but Brandon sounds so hot!

Oh and big spoiler, just highlight between the arrows à There’s will be a new werewolf addition to Legend’s Run! ß

As for Celeste’s and Brandon’s relationship, it does grow into something more in this book. You can tell they really care for each other. As for her other relationships with her friends, Celeste is really trying to tell her friends about Brandon and trying to bring her two worlds together. She is also trying to help Brandon with the cure to werewolf.

I say you should buy it if you really like the first book, like I did. But if you are just curious about the series, then I suggest burrowing it.

Author/Book News  The ending didn’t leave off as big as the first one, but there are still things left undone, so I hope there is a third book!

  1. I haven't read the first book in the series. It sounds good. I may wait until all the books are out and then maybe pick it up. Great review!
