Six Moon Summer (Seasons of the Moon #1) : SM Reine

Tuesday, June 14, 2011
Rylie's been bitten.

She's changing.

And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf... forever.

Rylie's parents force her to attend summer camp, but she's just as miserable at the girls' camp as she was at home-- there's nothing vegetarian for her to eat at the mess hall, she hates hiking and archery, and the other campers taunt Rylie mercilessly. One night, the bullying goes too far, and Rylie runs away. She doesn't get far. It's a full moon, and she isn't alone in the forest.

She wakes up unharmed in her cabin the next morning with no memory of what happened. The only sign something has changed are the healed scars on her chest, her increasingly keen senses, and her sudden craving for raw, bloody meat.

A boy from the other camp seems to know what's happening to her, but Rylie isn't sure if she can trust herself with Seth. He's way too cute and he knows way too much.

Rylie soon learns that she only has until the end of summer before she becomes just like the monster that attacked her: a man-eating werewolf hungry for human flesh. Unless she can find a cure, she's going to transforming at the end of the summer and lose her life to the hunger.

Good Reads Summary

Although this is a debut novel, the reader truly will not be able to tell the difference from this author to a seasoned author.  The novel explains the origin of werewolves.  The main character, Rylie, is inevitably attacked and slowly changing into a werewolf throughout the novel.  Although this novel is told in the third person, the main character will still appear as a personal friend to the reader.  Rylie's experience as a wolf is told to the reader in intricate detail, nothing is left out.  Along the way to her transition, she meets Seth-who turns out to be a werewolf hunter.  There are many twists and surprises to this novel, it is rare to say "the reader will never be bored" and actually ensure that statement.  The reader will feel bad for Rylie, who has normal teen problems stacked on top of becoming a werewolf.  The reader will appreciate Seth as a secondary character and love interest to Rylie.  This novel is fast-paced and ends too soon!  The reader will gratefully look forward to the next book in this trilogy.  This novel is recommended to teens (particularly females) who enjoy a little werewolf mixed with romance. 

I received this novel to review, this in no way altered my opinion.
