It looks rather large because its 3 books in one. So no wonder its so HUGE!!!

Its really good. Thats why I rated it 5 stars. If it wasn't really good, I don't think I would of rated it 5 stars unless I wanted to torture people by making them read this book since they think it is good and then they would find out it was bad and want to keep reading to see if there is a good part. And soon enough the book would be done and they would write their reveiw as the oppisite of mine. Luckily, I am an hone

I started reading this series when I was a young teenager. The stories were always captivating. The writing, on the other hand, wasn't exactly the best out there in YA today, but I have a feeling that perhaps it was because the target age was aiming for kids even younger than myself when I was a teen (9-14 y/o). There was excessive purple prose, it was unpoetically written, and there were constant descriptions of the clothes every single character was wearing. Ewing has commented before on the d ...more

I really liked the first book section i think she couldve just made a whole book of vanessas story and i wouldve been satisfied but when i got to books 2 & 3, the plots got pretty obvious and talk about repetative, i swear id be rich for as many times as ive read 'she clicked her tongue pierce against her teeth' i have mine pierced and i dont click it on anything, not to mention the story plot is repeated in evry book and i dono about jimena being hella chola its kinda cheesy chola/goddess i ...more

I had a couple of issues with these stories:

-The ages of the heroines vs. their actions don't match up. I kept thinking the girls were 17 or 19, which would have made what they were doing (not the paranormal stuff, but the "regular" stuff like traipsing about LA) more believable.

-Cut and paste was used often to describe characters or details from previous stories. I'm not sure if it would have been as noticeable if I read each book individually, but it was very noticeable in the bind-up.

Daughters of the Moon is a rather long series, and this book is made up of the first three books. There are four main characters (Catty, Vanessa, Serena, and Jimena), and each book follows a different character’s storyline. I usually don’t like series that rotate character focus like that, but this one works well. The four characters are friends, so all of them are present in each book. These characters go through the discovery of their true fate (a typical good versus evil plot), and they learn ...more

This book was great! I thought it would be a typical teenager book and (it kind of was) but it was still an interesting book. The end of each chapter had a cliff hanger and I couldn't stop reading. The different powers the characters had were interesting. Especially the character with premonitions it was cool to see how her premonitions played out in the story and I am looking forward to reading the second volume.

these are some really amazing books once you start reading you will not be able to put the books down if you like mystery adventure and fantasy then this is definitely a book for you to read because it has all that and more. it is definitely a page turner and worth the read volume one has the first three books in it making it easier to continue onto the next book and keep reading chapter after chapter
Apr 03, 2014 Teresa rated it it was ok
My overriding thoughts on these novels date me, I'm sure. While reading all three books, I kept thinking, "Don't you have chores or homework after school? Doesn't your school have a dress code? Where are your parents? Why are you running around LA at all times of the day and night? You're only 15. You can't go out dressed like that. Put some more clothes on."
Why was this not text-to-speech enabled? Maybe others don't find this to be a problem but I find I really need this feature to help me stay in the story beyond eye-strain.

The first book drew me in, in spite of my eyes. It was well written and characters well developed. But progressively through the three books the editing failed. In places, that lack of editing became very distracting and confusing as there were empty pages and continuity errors.

Even still the story kept me interested.

Includes "Goddess of the night", "Into the cold fire" and "Night Shade":
Four girls, four powers, one evil.

Vanessa can become invisible. But that's the biggest secret in her life. By meeting Jimena and Serena, she and her best friend Catty discover that they are more then just girls: they are Daughters of the Moon. Everyone of them has a special power like Invisibility, Mind reading, Travelling back in time and Premonitions.
But with they're powers comes a duty. They have to fight the ancient evil

There was the first three books of this series in this one book. It is slightly more for a younger readers but I enjoyed the books. I really like the characters. There are four main girls who have powers given to them by Selene. She is the God who runs the moon across the sky following the sun so the moon can then reflect the suns rays. She falls in love with a mortal and leaves the moon. That is why we have no moon for three days every month. Zeus punishes her but her love for the mortal is too ...more

Okay, so these books are intressting when aproching mythology, but it really feels like the author clicked "copy" and then "paste" when describing common events. The same words in the same order retelling events gets tiresome.
And i didn't really liked the pattern te books follow: All is well when one strange thing happens, things start to mess up, then the main girl gets ready for battle and the main fight comes about with some twist, and in the end she meets with the guy they're intrested in.

This volume had a great storyline, but the author had quite a few grammar mistakes in there. I was rather depressed by this, seeing the fact that she had written a series, and I thought she should have at least had correct grammar. But overall, very good first three books.
Oct 30, 2015 Bella rated it it was ok
Decent story for young audience, but a lot of issues, starting with grammar and typos. I read all 3 parts, but wouldn't seek out anything else by the author. Also did not like the focus on dancing and dating. Wish there was more magic instead!

This has the first three books in the Daughters of The Moon series by Lynne Ewing. Goddess of The Night, Into the Cold Fire and Night Shade. And I was hooked. Now I cannot wait to read the rest of the books. I believe there are ten more. The author is heavily influenced by mythology.

The first three introduces the four daughters of the moon: Vanessa, Catty, Serena and Jimena. They seem like regular LA teenagers into boys, books, clothes but they all are about to embark on a life changing journey

These books get 3 stars because of the myths behind them. I've always been a sucker for the gods/goddesses. But as I read these book(s) it's just seems so cliche and predictable. Normally I'm all for that; however, lately I have read nothing but YA novels and I'm starting to get bored. I don't like the different points of views either. It does remind me a lot of the anime Sailor Moon. I take pride in rereading books but this will not be a book I visit again for years if not decades too come. If ...more

Part one

I love the story itself, however the fact that the author repeats things in the same words in each book irritates me.

The fact that I didn't finish this wasn't the books fault. It actually was entertaining, and reminded me of L J Smith's books, but I was in the mood for something very different.

I picked up this omnibus on a whim. I'd read the back of the book and thought it sounded interesting, and it's always a good idea to read more than one book in a series to determine if it's right for me. The first book in this volume quickly convinced me that it is right for me. I love the inclusion of romance in each story, and the characters are nicely complex. What I love the most however, is the nods to classical mythology and how they end up playing out in each story. I love the direction t ...more
