   Phew, what a long read that was ! And not only because I took a little more than two months to read the book. The setting up of Indiana’s history took a lot of time, and it was only a quarter of the way in that we could finally say that the real story started. And even after that point, it was still slow going. Events unfolded slowly, little by little, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it made the story much longer than it needed to b

Spring Moon is about Indiana Teller, the sole human raised in a werewolf pack. Indiana waits in vain for his shift to come about but has to face the hard truth that he is just a human among many wolves. He sets out for college hoping to be of some use to his pack. Where he encounters the lovely Katerina and tries desperately not to fall in love with her, on pack orders. But games are afoot as weird occurances begin and Indiana must get to the bottom of them before he or his loved ones are hurt.< ...more

I picked up this book for two reasons, which are not my general ones: the first is because it's written by a princess. That is just too random to not peak my curiosity :) And second because it takes place at the University of Montana (UM), which is where I am a professor. I couldn't help but be curious how she portrayed it. (And, I've set a novel here myself!) Anyhow, the story itself was a great deal of fun, with quite a few twists and turns. I liked the way the world of the wolves was set up, ...more
I got a copy in exchange of an honest review.

I ended up DNF'ing this book. I just wasn't the book for me. It starts with one big info dump and then changes to a telling of the main characters past and I just didn't care. There is a lot of telling instead of showing and I didn't like the writing style.

C'est le premier livre fantastique que je lis. Ce livre m'a bcp plu contrairement à ce que j'aurais penser. L'histoire est bien ficelé et pleine d'action.Par contre, je n'ai pas réussi à vraiment m'attacher aux personnages de Indiana et de Katerina ce qui est dommage étant donné que ce sont les personnages principaux. Sinon l'histoire est intéressante, on s'y plonge facilement.

Un moment de pur plaisir!

J'ai beaucoup rigolé et j'attends la suite avec impatience!!!^^
Voilà voilà, les loups-garous n'étant pas mon fort, c'est un peu à tâtons que j'ai entamé cette lecture.
Finalement, je suis assez contente de cette découverte car ça a été une lecture agréable même si certains côtés m'ont un peu fait lever les yeux au ciel de temps à autre : le côté pataud et un brin boulet du héros entre autres et la petite romance adolescente centrale (même si heureusement elle est entourée de pas mal d'aspects beaucoup plus intéressants, comme les différentes "sortes" d

Ce livre, écrit par l’auteure de Tara Duncan, a tout pour plaire. Un héros malin, de l’aventure et de l’action, des magouilles, et surtout, ce sens de l’humour propre à l’auteure. Si vous voulez de l’action et du mystère, vous serez servis !

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

Spring Moon is pretty darn awesome! It's definitely not just another YA paranormal book. It follows Indiana Teller (yep, he's named after Indiana Jones) as he struggles to find his place in werewolf society and the human world, and as he develops a very rare power that he has. Despite being born into the most powerful family of werewolves, Indiana is just human. However, there was the possibility that he'd become a time-tracker like his mother. But at the age/>Spring

3 1/2 stars ...... I want the next book soon!

I received Spring Moon in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Have you ever read a book that you weren’t sure about when you started, but got better as you went along? That’s exactly my experience with Spring Moon. I liked Indiana but there was a lot of him ‘telling’ his story in the beginning, not much experiencing. As the story progressed either I got more comfortable with the author’s writing style or everything started to flow better/>

Something lost in translation...

My taste in reading varies but always comes back to supernatural elements. When the opportunity to rose to give SPRING MOON a read I quickly dismissed it. But if there's one thing that I have a hard time turning down it's stories set in the state I've lived in for most of my life. I figured if anyone could give it a fair examination it would be the gal who likes supernatural and Young Adult fiction that lives in the area the story takes place.

J'avais beaucoup entendu parler de ce livre alors quand j'ai vu que Livraddict proposait ce partenariat, je n'ai pas hésité une seconde!! Quelle bonne surprise quand j'ai vu que je l'avais remporté! Ma première participation et j'en suis plus que ravie!

Alors, comment dire? J'ai dévoré ce livre en moins de 2 jours ce qui je pense vaut tous les mots du monde!

Ce livre est un vrai petit bijou, je n'avais jamais lu de livre de cette auteure mais maintenant je suis plus que tentée de lire

First let me say that I have read more than my fair share of supernatural books involving "werewolves". But right from the start this book is different in a couple of ways-- its written from a male point of view and Audouin-Mamikonian does that very well. It was refreshing to read a book from the main male character. Secondly the main character Indiana, is not a werewolf and the book centers on him dealing with that fact in a werewolf world. This book is also from an author that I have never rea ...more
Vous avez plus de 11-12 ans ? Passez votre chemin ! Je crois que c'est le minimum requis pour adhérer à ce récit qui m'a semblé trop long, convenu, plat et sans aucune originalité. Ou peut-être sur le principe - le héros est fils de loup garou, mais n'en est pas un, il a hérité de la particularité de sa mère, puisqu'il est un rebrousseur de temps. (Sous le coup d'une émotion, le garçon s'éclipse et voyage brièvement dans le temps.) J'avoue que, sur le papier, ça sonne plutôt pas mal.

This was a fun and quick read by an author that is brand new to me. The writing style made for a very easy to read book with an interesting plot. I was also completely in love with the main character, Indiana. Yes, his name is silly, but he is one of the most adorable YA boys I've read about in a while.

Indiana Teller is the mostly human (not werewolf) grandson of the leader of the werewolves. Growing up in the pack with

Indiana Teller is not a monster, but he is different. His father is a werewolf and his mother is a time tracker. It was hard growing up in a family of wolves especially when his grandfather Karl was the alpha. He never fit in. However, he was no coward. He worked hard to compensate. He excelled in school and learned to fight to protect himself. Now is his chance to get away from his protective family and go away to college. Here he meets a girl, Katerina, who captures his interest. A rival for h ...more

"En résumé, un premier tome qui plante les bases, avec les premières pages assez longues, mais qui sont tout autant intéressantes que les autres. Dès l'instant où il a failli mourir, tous les soucis s'accumulent pour lui et ses proches, et on se rend compte que tout devient plus complexe au fil du temps. Indiana est un personnage que j'ai beaucoup apprécié, car même ado, il est quelqu'un de réfléchi mais avec beaucoup d'humour.

Vážně nevím, jak bych měl tu knihu hodnotit... Na jedné straně to bylo zajímavě - přeci jen, příběhů ze stran vlkodlaků moc neznám. Nápad, že by byl do vlčí smečky začleněný člověk s tajemnými schopnostmi, je opravdu nádherný! Avšak, některé scény mi v knize přišly zbytečné a místy mi to přišlo trochu moc velké klišé.... Uvidíme, jaké budou další díly...

Une histoire originale et des personnages attachants, même si les principaux protagonistes font beaucoup plus jeunes que leur véritable âge (18 ans). Il y a pas mal de rebondissements et la fin est très bien, mais je l'aurais préférée un peu plus triste ! Oui, j'aime les fins tristes :) J'ai néanmoins passé un très bon moment de lecture qui vaut bien 4 étoiles.
