Here's the thing, I want to like this book, it's a local artist, but I just can't. I can't even finish it. Which if you know me, then you know that is only something I've done two other times in my entire life.
I won't talk badly about this book, but it is poorly written and feels like I'm reading a rough draft of an idea of a book. I feel like the storyline (saying this without reading but half of it) could have potential, but it's so bad that it takes away from the story.

Have you ever felt as though you were starring in your own personal episode of The Twilight Zone where everyone likes a book but for the life of you, you cannot figure out why? Well, that is exactly what I felt trying to read "Of Sun & Moon." Normally, I read a book a day; however, I have been attempting to finish this book for two days now and finally after reading to the 74% mark, I just plain and simple give up!

The premise for "Of Sun and Moon" on the surface had great potential. A teenag

You know those little fairies that steal into your room at night, take your tooth, and leave you a quarter richer? They’re cute, they’re tiny, they’re harmless, and they leave glitter by your window, right? Wrong. Everything you think you know is a lie. Growing up, Keira has always known she is special: she is a tooth fairy… and not the kind your parents told you about. Keeping her secret from her friends is the hardest thing she has ever had to do, and it leads to some serious complications.

Of Sun and Moon (Midnight Guardian Series,Book1) by Bryna Butler

I'm not sure how much I can express that I loved this novel. It's a bit out of my usual genre, but it grabbed my interest right from the start. Keira Ryan and Colby Hayes have been friends for life. So this seems to start our like one of those romance novels where the reader gets the sense right away that though they each are pursuing someone else they are meant for each other. But this is more than a romance novel; it's a fractured
Kiera and Colby have been friends since they were born. And now the fun had begun. I was a bit disappointed in this story. I loved the story line, but I was never really engaged with Kiera or Colby. Neither character is delved into very much thoughtout the whole novel. We don't really understand why decisions are made or what the motivation behind anything is. I think it might have been better if this novel was written from one point of view. Then we would understand Kiera's life, or Colbys life ...more
Whenever I sit down to rate a book, I always have a hard time justifying giving it less than 3 stars. Authors work very hard to make their books everything that they want it to be, and for me to come in and reduce it to a rating like, "it's okay", is difficult.

Why did I give this book two stars?

The major reason that I rated this book so low is because the writing left a lot to be desired. The book goes from major event to major event with nothing in between. You, as the reader, are expected to a
This book was definitely something different. I am not entirely sure how I felt about this book once I finished it. I liked the idea but I kept getting confused because it would jump around between different characters points of view almost without a moments notice (or maybe it just seemed that way). I was extremely tired last night when I read this book (all in one sitting I might add) so that could have a role in my confusion. I might have to try reading the second one at a time when I am not ...more

2.5/5 stars

Freshman Keira Ryan is a tooth fairy. No, not some pink, sparkly being that rewards children upon that great milestone of teeth lost. Instead, think more kick-butt action hero devoid of the wand and glittery tulle. Keira’s a guardian, a guardian of children whom the monsters of childhood nightmares seek to destroy. As the strange disappearances of her classmates begin to plague her small town, Keira must claim her birthright and fulfill her destiny to defeat the evil behind the kidnap

First I want to say the cover is gorgeous!
I found this book on Amazon and though I would give it try. It sounds different and original. The premise of the book is pretty interesting and it did keep me turning the pages. I think the idea was great. The myth behind the tooth fairies that the world hears is far from the truth. The so called tooth fairies in this book are not at all interested in the teeth as much as they are in saving the world, s

Jan 03, 2014 Vanessa rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This book is quite disappointing. Among all paranormal creatures, I was surprised that the author was bold enough to feature a tooth fairy as her main character. I had no problem with it, because the tooth fairy here is given a broader role rather than simply sneaking into a child's room and take the tooth, until it is revealed that the tooth fairy can turn into a mouse. I understand the logic behind it, but I am leaning toward pixie dust and vanishings and all those things.

Another thing that I

I just finished the first book is this series. It has been on my to read shelf for over a year.

I truly enjoyed the book. I was surprised when so many did not like the title. It is a nice easy read. I look forward to reading more of her books.

I wanted to like this book, I really did. She's a local author. This book could have been written by someone in middle school. This story was too all-over-the-place, the characters had no depth, the plot was lackluster. I wish I had something positive to say.

An interesting take on the tooth fairy story. I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters. I can't wait to read more and will be recommending this book.
Nice fluff about a supernatural being we never thought could be bad ass. Actually has a unique mythology and nothing to do with the common fable.
