Overview

Zach Trewick has a hard choice to make. His family expects him to become a werewolf on the night of the next full moon, whether he likes it or not, and he's got only three days left before time runs out.

Scrambling to find a way to stay human, Zach quickly makes a bold plan to run away from home and find his uncle Justin nearly a thousand miles away in Texas, the only person he can think of who might take him in.

Stowing away in a septic tank, sleeping in a library, and living in a dog house on a vacant lot are among the adventures he encounters along the way.

But the werewolves have no intention of letting him escape so easily. For although he doesn't know it yet, Zach is the Curse-Breaker, the long-foretold boy who can crush the wolf curse forever, and his family will stop at nothing to prevent that.

Nominated for the 2010 Texas Lone Star Reading List for excellence in young adult literature, Cry for the Moon is the first book in the Last Werewolf Hunter series, followed by "Behind Blue Eyes,"

The series is suitable for middle-graders and up, since it contains only mild violence and little to no gore. It has more to do with Zach's ultimate choice to become the last werewolf hunter in the world, and to break the Curse forever.

The series occasionally contains some light Christian themes.

Discussion questions for the series are available on the author's website.

Meet the Author

I've been writing stories almost since I was able to pick up a jumbo crayon and put words on paper. I love what I do and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share these tales with my readers.

My work is typically classified as young adult literature, if only because the stories are clean and most of the characters are young. There's more to it than that, though.

Every book I've ever personally loved has been what I'd call ageless. That is, it contains something that can touch the heart of a child while he's still too young and raw to appreciate subtlety, but there's also something in it that he can still feed on when he's old and gray, although perhaps not the same things. It's my aspiration to write stories like that.

In fact, the majority of my readers are adults who want to read something that will uplift them and make them feel glad to be alive that day. We all need beautiful stories, and without them we suffer.

Good book. Just got drawn-out in some parts, but very good. Wish the book itself were longer.

I enjoyed the book, but to be honest, the 'supernatural' element was not necessary, unless it was just some way to get people to read the story. I liked the main character and his down to earth thinking and definitely felt for him. The religious elements were a bit heavy handed at the end and while I have no problem with good hearted religious people, the boy 'finding religion' felt out of place and turned the book from an interesting read to a moral or message type of story. Still, good writing and good characters. Not a bad 'boy's adventure' tale.

Hoping this was another dramatic and intense werewolf story, I naively kept reading this book, appalled the main character hates who he is, where he comes from and is constantly on the run from his true self. Plus there is constant religious innuendo which peeves me even more. If you are going to put a Full Moon on the front cover of your book plus a great title, make it a great book. This is by far the worst book I have ever wasted my time on. Luckily it wasn't long. If you have ever had the desire to be so angry at how a book turned out and wanted to toss it in a fire, then read this one. Terrible. Just terrible! And the last sentence is by far the most magoo. I feel like there should have been a warning label. *Warning: book contains religious beliefs, self-suppression and fear. Do not read.*
