I usually don't write reviews...but I was so annoyed by this I had to. I don't think any of this is really spoiler-ish, forgive me if it is. It's more of a rant now that I've finished the book.

Good idea. Horrible execution. The wording and vocabulary seemed very poor, I don't know what reading level this book is supposed to be targeting, but I can't help but feel that I would think the same even if I was a fourth grader. There was an overall lack of description, build up of tension, and overall

Oh my God I loved this book. I hate to gush, but I really did. This book gave me the same feeling I got while I was reading Twilight, and I loved Twilight. To clarify—the plot of this book does not remind me of Twilight. Just the feelings I got while reading it.

The story starts out with Candra being shipped off to live with her aunt and uncle because her parents think she is out of control. As soon as she lands in Hartfo

Thanks to Rebecca A. Rogers for giving me a copy of "Silver Moon" to read. I am happy to review this book but not every review can be a candy coated rainbow of super sonic squees. Plus, I am the pickiest werewolf critic that you will ever meet. Plus, isn't an honest review better than a GOOD JOB kind of review?

While this book should be near and dear to my heart because I am such a big werewolf lover, the straw that broke the camel's back was that this is a GIRL werewolf book. Kids... as you all

I really enjoyed this whole book it is like Romeo & Juliet with werewolfs added in and with Magic aswell. I was pulled right in to the story world that Rebecca A.Rogers has created. I was up all night reading I went to bed at 5am and had to get up for work at 8am but Silver Moon was totally worth the sleepless night. I really can't wait to see what happens with the war between the two familes and to read more about Ben I hope the wait for book 2 isn't too long. :)

Main story: Candra is sent to live with her aunt and uncle in Connecticut as a punishment for her being such a troublemaker teen. Little did she know, a great old family feud awaits her in a town so secretive. Everybody has secrets. The new girl is lost. so alone..

Despite Candra’s difficult situation, she still managed to make me laugh. Her mind is full of witty and sarcastic remarks. What she says sometimes contradicts with what she thinks, but sorry for her she’s so easy to read and her acti
What a cliff-hanger -.-


*trigger epic success music and the jersey shore gifs*

This was an epic boooook!

It actually was pretty norm for a YA book, but I have been reading so many disgusting novels lately that Silver Moon seems like a gift from above.


The only bad point in Silver Moon:

There (too me) was way to many main-character-mistakes. As in, the character kept making the same mistakes over and over again.

Other than that I have no problem with Silver Mo

“Listen, I —” he begins, but I lean over and place my index finger on his lips. “One day, Benjamin Conway, we can be friends. But, with the way things are right now, I don’t think that’ll happen in this lifetime” His lips graze my finger with a kiss before I pull it away. “Then I’ll wait for you in the next,” he says, and the way those words leave his body and hang in the air, breaks my heart.

4.5 - As soon as I heard about Silver Moon, I knew it was going to be an awesome book…..and I’m so gla

This was a great debut novel by Rebecca Rogers. Really loved the MC's voice on this one - sarcastic and sassy and kept my attention. Really enjoyed watching the forbidden romance bloom between Candra and Ben from the enemy pack and I'm anxious to see if these two can get together in the future without following the tragic footsteps of Romeo and Juliet. And in my mind I'm trying to figure out what Candra's secret power will be when she turns eighteen, and what it will have to do with the clocks s ...more

Gah!! The Love interest in this novel is so freakin' awesome!!!! :D LOVED this one!
This book had me from the get go. That is saying something! I really do love the way Rebecca built the story right at the beginning. By dropping Candra off at relatives and her family just leaving wouldn't have gone over to well in the excitement category for me. But add the fact of how Rebecca creates a regret feeling from her parents with a hint of mysterious looks and the "letter" Candra's mom leaves her. Well, that was a good beginning that intrigued me so I kept reading. And I was not let d ...more
I'll just start off by saying I won this book in a contest and I never win anything!!! So huge thanks to Rebecca for sending me this (and signing it), and for the swag pack that came with it! With that said, I also want to say that in no way did that affect how much I enjoyed this book! I've been waiting patiently for this book for over a week and it finally came today! I won't spoil the book for those of you who haven't read it, (what are you waiting for?!) by telling you what the book is about ...more
Great Book for Debut! Character were awesome, I love the sassy Candra. The world setting is much like our own. Plot and storyline was great, as well as, the pace. The only thing I did have a problem with was the writing style. It was a little jumpy. An easy fix in the next book. Other then that I think this book will turn into a great series! Great potential!

Got the newest version of this book straight from the author. Kudos :)

Wickedly Good

This book is an amazing start to this adrenaline filled series. Candra is one of the bravest girls I have ever read about. When she finds out the real reason she has been sent to live with her Aunt and Uncle she is stunned. I can't wait to see where the next leg of this amazing series is going to get. I can't wait to see what happens between her and Ben. With the personality Candra has it was obvious that she would fall in love with her enemy. Again an amazing start to a great serie

Original review here:

Silver Moon follows a young woman named Candra. Candra is always getting into a lot of trouble. Her parents don't know what else to do except to send her to live with her aunt and uncle, Randy and Beth. Candra feels hurt and abandoned, but her mom assures her it is for her own good. Little does she know that there is more to her unexpected visit then she thought. Her life in a new town is

Sigh... How the hell do I start reviewing this book? It's pretty messed up if you ask me. It's kinda shocking that I could muster some courage to go through this book after stupid Candra decided to throw common sense out of her window and become that silly girl. Since I can't seem to write more without spoilers let me just make some things clear about this book.

1. It's a common story of a shapeshifter. (We all have read about a troublesome teenager who finds out s/he is a shapeshifter o

Silver Moon is a YA Paranormal Romance, with werewolves as the main theme, plus magic, rival clans, ancients and forbidden romance.

The plot is interesting and engaging, I loved all of the characters, even though I still had to know more of them in the sequel, the ‘forbidden romance’, is a thing I always look forward to too :D.

This book has a lot of mystery, and plus the author’s writing style, it kept me reading until the end. This is full of suspense
The setting for Silver Moon is in Connecticut in our time period. Candra Lowell is being taken by her parents from Charleston to move in with her Aunt and Uncle. She’s not happy about the move and but doesn’t fight them on the issue. After starting High School in Connecticut Candra quickly learns that there is a feud going on in this new town and her family is very involved. At school she meets a mysterious handsome guy and immediately feels a deeper connection. Her life is turned upside down wh ...more
Silver Moon is full of mystery. Candra Lawton is moved to East Hartford to live with Aunt Beth and Uncle Randy. Candra is a rebel of a student and has a perchance for trouble. This actually makes me like her all the more. It is departure from the candy coated heroines that are so good and always do the right thing. Candra is gritty and questions everything from what everyone is hiding to whether her love interest is sincere. What was nice was that Candra didn't take the secrets sitting down and ...more
hmmm.... Okay.

To start with: I tried to be open-minded about this book, but it just didn't work out. Everybody gave bad reviews about it, but I thought, whatever, I'll just try it. But the story doesn't make sense. It's full of unanswered questions and I didn't understand the whole 'love' thing with Ben(Benjamin). (view spoiler)

This idea of the plot fascinates me! It's a fantastic idea and has excellent plot building! I've read several reviews with the sentence "twilight meets Romeo and Juliet" which has a slight point, EXCEPT I don't see the twilight part... R&J I see, but no Edward or Bella, so ya know. And to the lovely people who slammed the author for this one, I think that there is always room to build for an author, an that's the point, you get better as you learn and everyone has that same trouble.

Candra is a young girl who likes to get herself in trouble, She seems to be eluding her parents wishes so they ship her off to to live with her Aunt & Uncle all the way in Connecticut.

Under the impression that her parents have abandoned her due to her behaviour Candra isn’t settling in well.

She feels unloved, left out, and most of all betrayed by her parents.

Little does Candra know they didn’t ship her off because she was an unruly teenager, they did it out of love, and for her own protectio
Silver Moon by Rebecca A. Rogers is about Candra, a seventeen year old senior who gets shipped off to live with her aunt and uncle because of her "bad behavior" Little does she know that she was sent to learn more about what she is about to become...a werewolf.

Silver Moon is a very enjoyable read that held my interest throughout the entire book. I enjoyed the well written characters, loved reading the start of a "forbidden" romance, and the mysterious plot. I rate Silver Moon 4.5 stars, the miss
I hated this book.
So much I didn't even finish it.
I found myself skimming and skipping through the pages.

The main character is a total b with a itch - her personality is REALLY distasteful.
I personally wouldn't like her if I met her in real life. On the first page, I knew wouldn't like her or the book, but I ignored it because I read a few the reviews - mostly good. I can not comprehend with the main character - she's VERY UNLIKABLE. I feel like the author was trying to make Candra "cool" o
Pretty boring. I kept thinking of the Hatfields and the McCoys the whole time.

The Good:
- The premise for the story.

The Bad:
- The execution of said premise.
- The female protagonist is an idiot. Why do authors do that? A flawed character is fine, but a stupid character is inexcusable.
- Protagonist is on the verge of tears when her aunt forbids her to see Romeo her "crush" *cue eye roll*. The problem is she barely knows the guy and he acts like a freakin' stalker.

The Ugly:
I'll just post some

This is a must-read!!! This is the first book in the series following Candra as she comes to terms with being a werewolf. Doesn't help that help parents have supposedly gave up on her and left her at her aunts. Here she meets the mysterious Ben and his two bully brothers. Life is hard for Candra but at least she has her two new friends and a group of unknown werewolves looking out for her. But what can they do against the powerful enemy of a family?? What can they do when this family wants nothi ...more

Silver Moon was not that great of a book. I hate not finishing a series so I will read the other two books but I don't expect great things from them. There are way too many gaps in the story. It was like Rebecca Rogers published the first rough draft and didn't have an outside source edit it and critique her work before publishing it.
I really wish she would have done some research on how a wolf pack functions. Obviously there is always an Alpha in wolf packs. Then there is the Alpha's second.

well, lets start off by saying that i really did want to like this book, but
one thing is that i hated the characters. they were boring, flat, and not very well thought out. i mean the guy is battling staying away from her even though he likes her and he 'has; to show it. i found the heroine totaly boring and completly annoying.
'i hate me life. i will whine about it until my parents are fed up, and blah blah blah'.
the idea was really good and which is what i was drawn to.
but scenes were cut to s
Cute Book! It's a story about a girl who's parents ship her off to live with some relatives, after getting into some trouble with the law back home. While trying to settle in she begins to have really weird dreams, is practically shunned at school, and meets a boy. She soon realizes that she was sent here for more than just getting into trouble. A battle between clans, werewolves, and magic are just some of the things that she encounters. Although I liked the book it did seem a little rushed and ...more
