In Angel Leigh McCoy’s “Stalking the Moon,” magical realism crashes into the all-too-real world of mental illness, and the author handles it with a sympathetic and supportive voice. In it, the lead character, Viviane, finds her complicated connections with reality slipping when a mystery evolves. With some vivid settings and creepy overtones, complicated characters and memorable action, this book sprints to a conclusion too soon. Luckily, this is the first in a series.

When reading the blurb about this book, I thought it would be something entirely different from what I actually read. This book takes place mostly in an insane asylum/mental health facility. It is pretty verbose and to me it was hard to follow as it had a lot of mental crap happening mixed in with the story line. I did not see any resemblance to the stories I have read by Ilona Andrews, Kim Harrison, or Shayne Silvers. It reminded me more of A Clockwork Orange than anything else. I did not conne ...more

This book was very different from anything I had ever read. This is such a different UF book and I enjoyed the characters a lot. Vivane is battling her own demons as her hallucinations are becoming real and one of them kills. There is a lot of mystery involved and it isn't as sad or depressing as I had worried it would be. I enjoyed how real these characters felt and how much the story drew me in. I loved the mix of psychology and the fantasy. ...more

This book is a departure from anything else I have ever read. It is part psychology and part psychiatry which I am accustomed to reading as case studies. Never have I ever read a book for pleasure that contains both subjects as a form of entertainment. Little did I expect such a journey to be so enjoyable. I found the closer I came to finishing it the more I wanted it to continue. Please do read this book and soon.

Vivane is a schizophrenic and hallucinates. Her hallucinations are coming to life and one of them is a murderer. This book was kinda different but good. The characters are real. The story like I said is unusual. The worldbuilding is really good. I liked it.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

If you're looking for a unique UF world, Stalking the Moon delivers. I really enjoyed this characters in this story. They were quirky and real. And fun. I also appreciated the extra bits at the end, scenes from other characters' perspectives.
Stalking the Moon is set in and around a home for mentally ill. Sounds dark, but it was full of joy and love and mystery. I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed the storyline and character development. The overlap of fantasy and real world created an engaging and layered narrative. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! ...more
