They say love has no place in the perfect vampyre society. I say emotional desire cannot be suppressed. I will go as far as I must to be with the one I love.

Those in power are suppressing the truth, and it all stems from the Coven of Vampyres strict law: Human and Vampyre fraternization—strictly forbidden. When living in a society where love, passion, and desire are restri

Quick thoughts . . . lovers of vampire theme romances would find this one interesting. There are differences of opinions on how the humankind and the vampryekind should or could interact. The romance is palpable. There are bands put in place and a price to pay for doing the forbidden.

This romance was between two classes that should not have that kind of contact. There was no room for love. There was no room for passion. There was only one way and that was the way that was dictated to them. Kyra

I loved it from start to finish. This is different from his other books. It follows the story of a young woman coming of age and defying laws to be with someone she loves. Too bad that someone happens to be a vampire who keeps threatening to make her his meal. OMG there are so many things that happen to this woman in the short span of 6 to 7 months.Too many developments and plots twists to name here. Highly recommend.

I listened to this book in YouTube and I loved it, give it a go. Very emotional and fast paced, definitely a winner!!

Surprisingly this book was very entertaining and the sex scenes were hot as hell! The way that Sebastian (the hero) talked in the book had me wondering if the book was set in modern times or if it was set back in the 1800s? For example, this line:
"Fear not. It's me, Sebastian."
Who in the hell says that kind of shit? I mean it did have me laughing my ass off throughout the entire book, so I really can't complain.

I'm a sicker for a good vampire book, and this one is great! I love how all people turned vampire at the end of the 25th? century, and a few vampires turned back, giving us humans again. Romantic love is banned, as is mixing vampires and humans. So what happens of course..a vamp and a human fall in love..and that is the story. There is a lot more to it but that is the basis for the story.

The characters are developed and interesting. I loved the story, and the outcome. I can't wait to read the ne

This book is fantastic, I loved reading it.. it kept me interested to the very end.. a wonderful exciting book . If you like vampires then you will be excited to read this book.
So sad. This was not done well at all. The insta love here was not bad, though. And that's how this started out very well for me, and quickly went off a cliff.

The author was clearly writing by the seat of his pants (as in with almost no plan/outline). He pantsered the crap out of this book and it did not go well. He so obviously wrote the endless (and frankly unwarranted) twists and worked out the causes and logic afterwards, and that was just...ugh. It takes you out of the story! Especially wh

Courting Moon by Adom Sample is a 3.5 star read.
This story was about Vampire Sebastian who fell in love with a human woman, Kyra, but in the lands where they each live falling in love is forbidden. Both Sebastian and Kyra must fight their families and the ways of their lands to be together, along the way they must figure out who to trust and learn things about themselves that will shake up both their home lands if it was to be found out.
I can’t honestly say if I liked this book or not I’m stil

Human and vampire association is strictly forbidden by the council of vampires for Kyra and Sebastian their love for each other could be the death of them both. It was a prejudice against races because no human or vampire should have those kind of feelings towards each other but their attraction and connection to each other was soul searing. Kyra and Sebastian had to fight everything and everyone to stay together but they both knew that it was meant to be between the two of them. I love vampire ...more

Interesting new twist on vampire genre

A scifi and paranormal mixed story about futuristic and past world of vampires and humans. Forbidden love, secrets, lots of action and definitely a good deal of steam. It was at points little stilted and plot twists everywhere can get a little long but enjoyable story.

First let me state, I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review. Also, this is a new author to me, and it won't be my last.

I enjoyed this story very much. Kyra is a sweet young human woman who meets Sebastian, who is a vampyre. The two kingdoms do not cohabitat. Human and vampyre are to never have any type of relationship. In fact, neither kingdom allows for romantic love. All marriages are either parents choosing or meeting

This book was a very different read for me. I don't usually go for the supernatural, but I was very surprised.

The story is set in the future where there are only humans and vampyres.

They live seperately and cannot cross the border lines.

The story is very political as well as romantic. There are lots of government misadventures going in. This makes the book more interesting because you never know what you are going to read next.

I feel for the characters they have forbidden love and will do any

Is this our future?

A split between dystopian and paranormal it is an enjoyable Romeo and Juliet brought to you in the future. Similar to Twilight it had some rough story areas but was well written enough to overcome these for an intriguing tale

A fascinating world the author has created with humans and vampires living separate lives, so of course, two fall into a forbidden love. Somewhat predictable, but it does keep your interest.

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this book but I ended up finding it a great set up for the series. There are parts that drag a bit but the set up of the characters and questions to be answered are great. I look forward to the next book.

A book is always the sum of all parts, so I will try to give a review for every part of the book and put it together afterwards.
The Cover: The cover is honestly not my thing. If I would have gotten the cover only, to decide whether or not I want to review this book, I would have declined. It doesn’t look professional or intriguing and, to be honest, I would have expected a book consisting only of smutty scenes and – again – declined reading this on

Vampires! I swear 2020 has been the year of vampire revivals/stories so, while not published this year, Courting Moon is the perfect book to add to your collection of vampire romance stories. But, as you can probably guess, I’m such a sucker for vampire stories and this one fit in perfectly. I mean yes, it’s cheesy at times, but honestly doesn’t that make it all the better?

So this is your typical insta love between two lovers who were never meant to be. And if you’re a classic Romeo and Juliet

The writing wasn't great, and the character development was practically non-existent, but the story was good - it kept me wanting to know how they were going to unscrew up. It was good for a cliche paranormal romance, and I really enjoyed it as a story.
