With gossip and hostility swirling at school, it’s time to find a cure for his nocturnal condition, and perhaps the one person who can help is his scientist father. But what

I took quite a break in between reading Once in a Full Moon and its sequel, Magic of the Moonlight. Thankfully, however, that didn't cause me much trouble. I was able to jump right back into the Full Moon world with Celeste, Brandon, and the gang, and enjoy the ride.

Since I can't exactly remember everything about the first book, I forgot about the language and dialog used by the characters in

My take: It's a sweet read for a romantic teenager who finds hairy teenagers attractive. There are no vampires in this book and Jacob Black does not playfully romp around. The werewolves are more human looking than a real wolf and seem to emanate pheromones, rendering the female species helplessly in love.

The plot is predictable and the characters are shallow. If your preteen or teen asks for a copy of this book for Christmas, get it. Besides some make-out scenes, the book is clean and the swee

A pretty sweet sequel, but more adorable than anything else! Not enough depth behind emotions and they kissed a lot with little passion. However, I read this book in under two hours and was very happy while reading it -- it's a nice, sweet, and light summer read :)

This is one more series I am going to give up on. It was hard enough to like Celeste in first book, but this one is worst. Her BFs were as shallow as any other "mean girls" clique. I get that Celeste cares about Nash (her 1st crush and boy friend - this bit is repeated so many times in the book it is ingrained in your brain for eternity), but why does she have to repeat that his romantic jesters came a little late and that if he did that when they were together, they would be still together. She ...more

Ellen Schreiber never disappointed me in vampire kisses series what would make her disappoint me in full moon series NOTHING, she is talented and have a huge imagination and she always stick to the original myth that's what makes her so special

Through out this story I've been in an emotional roller coaster I finished the story pretty fast and that's what makes it great, it is 229 pages which I consider short for a book , but nevertheless it was AMAZING! And He'll Yeah I recommend people to rea

Story would be pretty good if the main character wasn't so stupid. The writing could be better, Schreiber keeps repeating the same thing over and over. She treat the reader as if they are stupid. The story is "There" it just needs to be tweaked.

This is a great series and keeps getting better and better. I love all the characters and would so far let my daughter read it. Sweet and has a forgiving and friendship feel. Plus it's fun.

The Full Moon series has been a mix of ridiculousness and incredulity on my end. This is mostly because everything just seemed remarkably unlikely and I’m not referring to the topic – werewolves – but to the characters’ personality and their reactions to certain events. To me, Celeste was someone I could not relate with at all. Granted, she was sweet (a little too sugary sweet) and had a very forgiving personality but it was extremely tiresome after only a short while. She kept going on and on a ...more

This is the second book in the Full Moon series and it starts several days after the ending of the previous book.
Nash has found out Brandon's secret and proceeds to blackmail Celeste with the information, in exchange for not telling anybody that Brandon is a werewolf he has Celeste pretend that they are dating again, he tells her that he's protecting her because Brandon is dangerous, but that's not the case and Celeste wants nothing more than to let her friends and everyone else know that she an

When I read the first book last summer I loved it a lot. I was actually excited about the second one, but I took my time on getting it from the library. I was hoping to love this one too. When I finished this one, I was & am still really not sure what to rate this book as. I was going from a 3.5 to a 4. It was a quick read, short to no conflicts.

What I liked was that the book started right were the first one left off. Which I like in a book because it makes it less confusing & easier to

I really like this cute and entertaining series by Ellen Schreiber. The first book left off with Celeste's ex- boyfriend Nash finding out her new boyfriend Brandon's secret. Brandon is a werewolf. In "Magic of the Moonlight", the story takes up right where the first installment left off. Celeste and Brandon have to deal with the consequences to Nash knowing the big secret. Nash is prepared to use it as a bargaining chip. Celeste needs to start dating him again or he will out Brandon to the entir ...more

I fell in love with Once in a Full Moon, and was really looking forward to the sequel. Magic of the Moonlight was a great, easy read as well. It leaves off right where Once in a Full Moon ends. I really need to check out the Vampire Kisses series from Ms. Schreiber because I really love her writing!

A little warning… there are a few spoilers up ahead! Do not read if you don’t want to ruin the first book.
Okay so the ending of the first book was pretty big, because Nash, Celeste’s ex-boyfriend sees

In Magic of the Moonlight, Celeste struggles with wanting to have a relationship she doesn't have to hide and wanting to protect Brandon and his werewolf secret. It's made even harder with Nash fighting to win her back. Ellen Schreiber has created a story that's just as compelling as her nocturnal werewolves.

I'm going to be completely honest and say that I like Ellen's Full Moon series better than her Vampire Kisses series. There's someth

Recommended with Caution[return][return]This is the second book in the Full Moon trilogy. There is a lot of lunch room angst in this book. Celeste is keeping Brandon a secret from her friends. Ivy and Abby are working really hard to get her back together with Nash. Nash is blackmailing Brandon and Celeste because he saw Brandon’s transformation into a werewolf. Celeste insists on punishing herself and goes back to the psychic for a reading. Every time she goes for a reading, it’s more bad news. ...more

Perhaps I'm biased because Ellen Schreiber is one of my all-time favorite authors but I really liked this book. Her stories are always light-hearted but filled with adventure at every turn. She did a great job creating the world of werewolves in the Full Moon series just like she did in the Vampire Kisses series.

This book wasn't as great as the first one though, at times it felt like it was dragging on and had a lot of repetition. One of Celeste's best friends Ivy really got on my nerves at sev

The Full Moon series is a lighthearted and fun series that makes for a great paranormal romance, and this installment lives up to the hype.

Again, Magic of the Moonlight is simply fun that is clean and lighthearted. I recommend this series to all readers, especially tweens and teens. They're short and sweet, and I know exactly what to expect from Ellen Schreiber and her works: lots of brilliant paranormal romance and tons of fun.

Celeste finally grew a backbone in this novel. I have to admit tha

Note: These are my personal opinions. I received no outside person comments or opinions.

This book was a joke. No, really, it was.

I gave up on this book. I couldn't even finish it.

The characters problems didn't interest me at all. I couldn't get entangled in the high school drama.
