Overview

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?

No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her with a dangerous attraction from her decision to uncover the truth.

But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.

Editorial Reviews

Fiktshun Reviews
Moon Spell is an intoxicating and utterly entertaining story that is brilliantly written.
Electrifying Reviews
Moon Spell is a promising start to a mythology-rich series of love, magic, and excitement. Samantha Young proves to be a great writer, and I will definitely be reading the rest of The Tale of Lunarmorte, along with her other novels.
Between the Covers Reviews
Moon Spell provides a fresh twist to the werewolf tale, one full of romance, snark, and a few fairies for good measure. I'm looking forward to seeing how this story continues in River Cast!
Mundie Moms Reviews
I absolutely love the wolves in the Lunarmorte series. This is one group of wolves I'd love to spend the day with and it wasn't hard to fall in love with them or their family dynamics.
Once Upon a Twilight Reviews
If you like lykans, vampires, Greek mythology and witches, then you MUST read this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series “River Cast.”

    So boring, it took me ages to finish, with one dimensional characters and plenty of spelling, grammar mistakes and repetitions that were contradictory. The writing read like a school project written by a 12 year old with constant changes in perspective in the middle of a paragraph that made following the story a nightmare.

    Great blend of Mythology & Supernatural

    Entwining Greek Mythology and the supernatural comes easy to Ms. Young. Moon Spell is a wonderful combination of both and kept me flipping these pages. I had a little trouble with the beginning but as we voracious readers know, the first book in a series slams you with the entire history to bring us up to speed for future books.
    Young's heroine is Caia who has lived separate for her pack called, Pack Errante. She has been protected until she is ready to face her destiny. Now that Lucian has killed The Hunter (who eradicated Caia's family) and assumed the Alpha position it is time to bring her back and face their future together.

    Caia does her best to integrate back into the pack and Lucian believes that she will connect better if she attends a semester of school with lykans her own age. Caia is not a normal lykan, however. There is something very different about her and Lucian knows. He also knows that they are destined to be together and the sizzle between them is palpable every time they are in the same room (HOT, HOT, HOT). Lucian is very Alpha and sometimes that gets him in trouble with the VERY independent Caia. Young's supporting cast of characters make for some great reading. Sebastian, who is also falling in love with Caia, is such a sweety!! Caia also starts to realize what she has been missing out her entire life. She may be independent but she has always dreamed about having a family.

    Things are not safe for Caia. Her uncle, who is now very aware that she is still alive, wants her dead. Because of Caia's mixed heritage, she is a HUGE threat to her uncle and he will stop at nothing to see her dead. At the same time, Caia is coming into her special powers and realizing how powerful she really is.

    The twists and turns leave you breathless and anticipating the climax. Caia's growth from a quite, reserved little girl into a strong, powerful woman equal to her Alpha is intense and dramatic and flows naturally throughout this book. Moon Spell is worth the read and you will fall in love with Young's characters, evil and good. I look forward to this story continuing.

    Wow!!!

    A seriously amazing series! Samantha Young is a brilliantly imaginative author that has created characters that will take up permanent residence in your heart. Captivating! Don't miss out on this great adventure. I'm half way through River Cast and I have to say that the second book is blowing me away so far. Can't wait to finish it and devour the rest of her books! Why oh why haven't I heard her name before?!?!?!?!? I must note that there are a few editing issues here and there but not enough to take away from this great read.

    Brilliant start to a series!

    Moon Spell is a romantic fantasy with a feisty heroine, sexy alpha hero, and a wonderful mythology that pulls you in from the very first page. Not only do I love the plot to Moon Spell, which had sprinkles of true uniqueness throughout it, but I love the characters. Caia is a girl who starts off as quite reserved and then as she's taken through all the twists and turns (and there are many!) of rejoining the pack and discovering who she really is, she develops into this strong young woman who knows her own mind. The pack itself are full of wonderful, rambunctious, funny characters, and you really do forget that they're not real as you're reading about them. Finally I just loved the way Young uses Greek mythology to explain the existence of supernaturals, very different and exciting.
    Now I can't wait for the next installment.

    Pure escapism and a young adult novel for older readers too!

    Surprisingly good!

    I kept debating on buying this book because of the reviews. The beginning needs some revision in the beginning, but smooths out shortly after starting. The romance wasn't thrown at you or forced. I am at the edge of my seat waiting for them to get along. I couldn't put it down and can't wait to start the next story!

    I love werewolf stories and this was a fantastic one! Moon Spell

    I love werewolf stories and this was a fantastic one! Moon Spell is somewhat different and fun.

    Caia is returning to her pack after being away from them for ten years. Most of the pack welcomes her home while others want nothing to do with her. She has a difficult time adjusting to living with the pack again. Then Caia finds out the she is half lykan and half magik. There are secrets, a love triangle and a war going on to add to the mix.

    I loved Lucien, I mean who wouldn't? He is the hot alpha male leader and did I mention he is hot? LOL The tension between him and Caia builds up throughout the book and then... well you'll have to read to find out. Caia is a kick butt kinda girl. She stands up for herself and her friends. She doesn't take crap from anyone, even Lucien. I also really like Sebastian, he is a really good guy and a great friend to Caia. Saffron, the fairy, loved her. She was so funny and just kinda popped up with these one liners. All the characters were well written, these were just some of my favorites.

    The author really brought this story to life. I connected with the characters right from the start. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to stop. I love how the author brought so many things to this book. There are different paranormal/mythical creatures, mythology, romance, suspense and humor. I liked how it took some time for things to build up, it just made the story more fun to read. I cannot wait to see what happens next!

    This e-book was given to me for review. This did not affect my review in any way.

    So, I personally love books like this that start off having you

    So, I personally love books like this that start off having you so incredibly confused, but end up with you so enamored that you can't put them down.


    I am a HUGE Fan of Caia, the poor girl has so much going through her head. She is with a pack and has no idea how to be a part of a pack, so has an undeniable attraction for the Alpha who she doesn't really want anything to do with, and people keep on saying weird things about her being different.


    I loved the flaws between Caia and Lucien. Both of them make so many mistakes whether it be saying the wrong thing, doing the wrong thing, or just being plain idiots, lol.


    The supporting cast is great, and you really get involved in everyone else's relationships too.


    As the plot unfolds, you enter a world which is segregated between the Daylights and the Midnights. I really enjoyed the action, drama, and of course romance in this one. Can't wait to read more!

    Moon Spell (The Tale of Lunarmorte, Book #1) by Samantha Young

    Moon Spell
    (The Tale of Lunarmorte, Book #1)
    by Samantha Young

    Rating: 4.5

    Genre: Paranormal Romance | Young Adult (16+)

    It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves? No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sight-line, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to discover the truth.But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves…and the girl they protect.

    Caia has been in hiding since her parents tragic death and, right before her 18th birthday, is being brought back into her father's pack, Pack Errante. Because of her shrouded past and unfamiliarity with the supernatural society around her, Caia reluctantly accepts that she has a lot of deep trust issues to resolve with her pack due to (surprisingly!) being treated with suspension and fear. Yet, the one person who attempts to ease Caia back into being a pack member is also the one person she is (secretly!) promised to as mate-- Lucien, the young alpha. Adjusting to a new school, new family members, and a new home is tough enough, but even more so when dark secrets from Caia's past become unearthed and the life, that Caia was so familiar with, turns upside down.

    I was so excited I found this e-book since I was very eager to read this series... and overall... I was NOT disappointed. It was a fascinating book with lots of supernatural intrigue and budding romance. Caia is a torn (and somewhat indecisive) character throughout much of the story; torn about how to react to her mysteries past, torn about her position within the pack, and torn about her acceptance of a relationship with Lucien. As much as her uncertainty about everything could easily cause the reader to frown upon her as a faltering character, Caia succeeds in perfectly balancing out her wavering thoughts with a sense of innocent vulnerability and stubborn persistence. Plus, her personal connections with Lucian (steamy!) and her new friends within the pack (endearing!) create a well-balance protagonist that is hard not to enjoy. Expect lots of twists and surprises throughout the book in regards to the upcoming supernatural war and Caia's close association with it, but largely, Moon Spell, is about a girl adapting to a new life-style change (be it...a change in an out-of-the-ordinary world full of werewolves, witches, and fairies - Oh My!)

    Likes: Really enjoyed the Greek Mythology weaved throughout the pack's origins.

    Dislikes: Not really a fan of the Midnight Coven and/or those associated with the magical arts throughout the tale. I was disappointed b/c many of their scenes throughout the story, in regards to "magic," were kind of blah and humdrum.
