Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This sexy but lackluster fantasy novel kicks off the Daughters of the Moon series by the author of Drive-By and Party Girl. High school sophomore Vanessa and her best friend, Catty, have magical powers. But while Catty sees her ability to time travel as a gift, Vanessa hates her own ability to turn invisible: she "tried to control her molecules, but in times of intense emotion, her molecules had more power than her ability to restrain them and the light from a full moon seemed to fuel their charge." Vanessa wants to date the handsome, long-haired Michael and be like everyone else, but whenever he kisses her, her feet and hands start disappearing. Then Catty turns up missing, and Vanessa's new friend Serena (a mind reader) reveals that they are goddesses, Daughters of the Moon, who must battle the evil Atrox and its dissolute band of "Followers" (from whose souls Atrox has sucked all hope) who haunt the Los Angeles club scene. Multicultural and cutting-edge, the California-hip backdrop may appeal to some readers and the book contains enough affirmations of "girl power" to please any budding feminist. But in the end, this series reads like an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer without the camp. Into the Cold Fire, the next in the series, follows Serena as she falls prey to the dark side. Ages 12-up. (Oct.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
VOYA
Vanessa Cleveland has the amazing ability to make herself invisible at will. Unlike her best friend, Catty, who revels in her power to shift time, Vanessa hates her dubious talent and wishes she were just like everybody else. Despite her misgivings, she meets and starts hanging out with girls, who, like herself and Catty, display supernatural aptitudes. Serena, a punk rock princess, can read minds, and Jimena, a former gang-banger, can see the future. With the help of Maggie, a sort of contemporary fairy godmother, Vanessa, Catty, Serena, and Jimena discover that they are the four Daughters of the Moon, modern teen goddesses of the Los Angeles club scene. Together, they are supposed to do battle with the forces of the Atrox, "the primal source of evil." In this introduction to the Daughters of the Moon series, Atrox flunkies kidnap Catty and Vanessa, who must embrace her goddess ability if she wants to save her friend. There is also a romantic complication as Vanessa is forced to choose between good-boy Michael and bad-boy Stanton, an Atrox follower, who nonetheless has a soft spot for Moon goddesses. While the cool covers and Wicca-like trappings are sure to sell this series to fans of Francine Pascal's Fearless books and Silver Ravenwolf's Witches Night Out series, Ewing's characterization of the goddess girls is rushed and somewhat vapid, and the dialogue is clunky. Better recommendations for teen readers looking for Wiccan fiction might be The Other Ones by Jean Thesman (Viking, 1999/VOYA August 1999) or Magic Can Be Murder by Vivian Vande Velde (Harcourt, 2000/VOYA December 2000). VOYA CODES: 3Q 5P M J (Readable without serious defects; Every YA (who reads) was dying to read ityesterday; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2000, Hyperion/Disney Press, 294p, PLB.

    Goddess of the Night - My most favorite in the Daughters of the Moon series

    We have four daughters by the name of Vanessa, Catty, Jimena and Serena. Each girl has a power and are goddesses who are to battle an ancient evil known as the Atrox. Depending on the cover the story focuses on Vanessa who can turn herself invisible when feeling nervous (especially around a boy she likes). All the while is being followed by another boy by the name of Stanton.

    Details so real that it makes you tremble

    Even just looking at the back of the book it makes you want to pick up and read it then! It starts out just by telling that four girls have special powers. Vanessa can turn invisible, Catty can travel back in time, Serena can read minds and Jimena can tell the future. The person with the perspective in this book is Vanessa. She has a problem with her power. Whenever she wants to kiss her boyfriend, Michael, she disappears. And she is the only on of the girls who has to hide her secret power from her mom and everyone else. She¿s best friends with Catty and Catty¿s mom thinks she¿s an alien so it doesn¿t really matter what she does. She ends up going to a woman who knows her secret and tells her that she is one of the four daughters of the moon!!! She starts to be followed and when her best friend goes back in time to see who it is she gets stuck in time and Vanessa has to go save her. I¿m not going to say how it turns out though! I completely loved this book to where I¿m going to get the rest of the thirteen book series! GET THIS BOOK!

    Beautiful!

    I loved this book. I've been reading the series, and I've learned a lot about Greek goddesses. I reccomend this book to someone who is a little tired of the same-old fantasy. It is something you'd never expect. It is not too catty or fantastical, it has just the right balance of fantasy and realism. Lynne Ewing writes these books like the reader will one day become Daughter of the Moon, and sometimes I think I have! :)

    Those covers. Always saw this on the shelves at the library and so had started reading the books. And couldn't stop reading. They such fun reads. Cliche but fun. Read these in high school actually and found that Vanessa and Cassy my favorites but still like all four.

    This one focuses on Vanessa who can turn invisible and well, finds that she along with other 3 girls are daughters of the moon and from there, their lives change.

    I read the entire series up to the thirteenth book a few years ago and as silly as it may sound, this series still crosses my mind once in a while to this day. I would go to the library, rent one, read the whole thing in a single day, and return to the library the next day to get the next one. Sadly, I'm very picky when it comes to a book that will keep my interest, so I just took this one home on a whim one day, and I even surprised MYSELF with the amount of love I had gotten for this book in a matter of an HOUR! I HIGHLY recommend the entire series to anybody. You really cannot read just one. I especially liked that on a bad day I could completely get lost in a world of imagination as the descriptions of everything happening in the book were wonderful. This book is not slow at all and I was hooked from the very FIRST page. That is exceedingly RARE for me. I've purchased the hardcovers I've been able to come across, and I'm not gonna lie... I cried a little when I bought the 13th book as I knew it was the very last of the series. I hope others will enjoy these as much as I did! Definitely worth checking out if it's hard for you to find something you like!

    Good Book

    This is the first book in the Daughters of the Moon series. I liked this book, it was a fun and faced paced read. There's even romance for the people who love that kind of stuff. Vanessa has always been different and the only person who knows it is her bestfriend Catty who is also different(Catty's mom found her and thinks she's a space alien LOL) Vanessa is afraid what will happen once people start to find out. There's a guy at school named Michael that Vanessa is head over heels about, the only problem is she can't seem to control her powers when she is kissing him. Then to make matters worse someone is following Vanessa and she doesn't know who it is. Catty goes missing and soon Vanessa learns who she really is with the help of her new friend Serena and about the evil Atrox who is out to destroy her and her fellow goddesses.

    Loved It!!!

    This was one of the first books i ever actually read! It is an easy read and i finished it in like a day. But i loved it... the characters are personal and you can find different ways to relate to them. The story draws you in and each time you finish a chapter you just have to read the next. I really enjoyed figuring out about what all the girls powers mean. And the fact that there all goddess was awsome! It thrilling and is a great read for those times where you just was to quickly read a random book!

    daughters of the moon #1 and 2

    i read the first two books and i am going to read the rest of the series :). its very interesting :). i think i read it more just to see what happens, rather then the writing. this series is about four girls, Vanessa Cleveland, Serena Killingsworth, Jimena Castillo, and Catty Turner who all have special powers. vanessa can turn invisible, serena can read minds, jimena has premonitions, and catty can travel through time. i recommend it :). i also recommend premonitions by jude watson, hottie by Jonathon Bernstein, dont die dragonfly by linda singleton, oh. my. gods. by tera lynn childs, and salem witch tryouts by Kelly McClymer

    This was a terrific book. Once I picked it up I could not seem to put it down. It was very discriptive and life like. This is one of the best fantasy books I have read. I can't wait to read the complete series.
