Synopsis Book 3: Moon Spun: Junior's back from Mexico with his movie-star entourage. Beck's using his half-demon charms to "heal" a new girl. Mom's still wacky and now she's dating Principal Hostetler. High school is still an obstacle course of drama queens, bullies and nutjobs. The Trimarks are still a menace, and the moonstone pendant has revealed e ...more
First, there was the weirdness of the three guys going after Allie. And to be honest, I didn't like any of them besides Junior (of course). I was truly happy for his return, cuz I missed his spicy Latino air.
Second, there was the fairy stuff... seriously, why does there have to be something else weird going on? Wasn't the moonstone and the star seekers ...more
First off, Junior is back. I'm not sure what it is about the guy but I'm just not feeling it. I liked Beck, but it this one he turns into an ass and disappears for most of the story. Add in the third guy (really did we need a third) Ryker and it just gets sticky. ...more
There comes a time where you just have to say enough is enough.
Yes, I still enjoyed the story - but come on! Fairies now? It's as if Marilee Brothers is trying to cram every bit of supernatural she possibly can into this story. It's starting to get a little far-fetched - even for this paranormal supernatural lovin' gal.
And third book, third guy. Really? What is with this cycle of endless boys being paraded by us? It's hinted at that A ...more
Here's what frustrated me with Moon Spun. Allie find ...more
I have loved this series and read the first two every quickly, but in the third novel I got bogged down wtih the addtion of a third boyfriend, who I didn't like nearly as well as the first two (he was much too arrogant) and the addition of another magical complication in her life. She's a faerie, with another name to keep track Normally I like the "out there" books, but this just felt like overkill. I even love modern day faerie tales, but I want to know from the beginning that's what ...more
So here we are, back in Peacock Flats with Allie and Faye and all the rest. Beck has left for college and found a new girlfriend. Junior is back in town. Ryker is annoying. So, Allie’s love triangle is now a love square. We meet the fae in this one too, which usually excites me, but this one was kind of weird to me. We jump from Allie being a Star Seeker to Faye being…well, fae, thereby making Allie fae as well. There’s just a lot going on in this one. I wo ...more
I found this series hard to get into at first. Being an adult that likes to read YA I tend to gravitate toward the upper end of the YA spectrum. Thus I found Allie’s goofy moments a bit diff ...more
The threat in this book isn't from the Trimarks - it's in Boundless, aka Fairyland. Allie's grandmother needs her help to free the fairies of the forest from the prison they've been kept in for years. Add a changling wh ...more
3 1/2 STARS
This is the third book of the series Moonstones. So far its not been my favorite book. Still enjoyed it.
In this book Allie has Junior coming for visits. Breck coming back on visits from collage and a third guy Ryker shows up.
Does not deal with school. Allie has a summer job working for her Uncle at the fruit stand. Plus she ends up babysitting Chad her princable child.
Ryker is a fairy and he has come bringing a message from her Grandmother who is a Fairy ...more
Let me first say that if this was a different series with a different character, it'd be great. It's readable. It's fun. It just irritates me because t ...more
Ryker is introduced as ...more
She meets Ryker, a sometimes Hawk, sometimes hunk...and very fairy... and is -as she discovers that she has fae blood herself, through her grandmother- presumed his mate! Ryker has come to take her to fairyland, Boundless, to save her ailing grandmother and assume her rightful place by his side...
Yes you got it, and I ...more

Moon Spun really disappointed me for a lot of reasons. It took what had been a steadily developing series and brought it down to the level of day time drama in terms of plot continuity. Brothers makes drastic changes in the structure of the ...more
Her world is further turned upside-down when she discovers that not only is she the Star Seeker, but she's also a Faery princess. As if thi ...more
This is the third of five volumes in the Unbidden Magic series, and picks up where the last left off. It is written as a sequential series, and while the first two books were enhanced by sequential reading, this book could stand alone without great confusion.
In this book, Junior returns from Mexico to express his desire for Allie, and her boy problems continue with confusion about which boy is superior. Sadly, that whole line of the story tends to find me less than enthusiastic, All ...more
This time around Allie meets her grandmother and helps save the day in Boundless, then re-introduces her mother to her grandmother. As well as dealing with major drama between the 3 gu ...more
I absolutely loved pretty much the entire plot and gobbled up every word. The scenes in Boundless are breathtaking, and the fae characters are absolutely amazing.
A few scenes were so beautifully written that I was honestly moved to tears.
The one problem I did have with this third book was the addition of ...more

The latest book by Marilee Brother's takes the world of Alfrieda to a whole 'nother plane. Fairyland to be exact - and while the series just got a lot more complicated it was enjoyable. There were a few moments where I was just a bit overwhelmed by the craziness the series had taken and fairyland did seem a bit 2D compared to the vibrant Peacock Flats. But, besides some of the sillier moments of the novel, I did enjoy and look forward to any more books that Brothers mi...more
