    What a let down...

    I have found a great deal of self published authors that are amazing, so I hoped that the reviews of this book meant I would be getting my moneys worth for this eBook. Not at all. It is a long book, that is true- but I felt like I was reading fanfic written by a preteen. Wonderful concept, poorly executed.

    **Some Spoilers**

    The characters are flat and their relationships felt forced and fake. The Heroine comes across as uncaring, and vapid. She accepts the answers of the people around her without thought. She barely seems worried that her new friends are connected to the deaths of millions of humans. Entire COUNTRIES are being destroyed, no survivors at all, and she finds her 'perfect match' when he howls while eating a human. When she confronts him about that, she accepts his explanation that he was under orders. Um, okay. That makes it all better, right? Right? Yeah, I didn't think so. At one point she decides to take a shower because the guys are talking about 'important, boring stuff.' That's right folks. The fate of the entire human population was boring stuff.

    That neat plot thread where the humans are being mass murdered by the millions becomes neglected. Their little group hops on a plane and flies overseas. Call me crazy, but I am pretty sure that the gov't, TSA, and CDC would put a halt on travel if entire countries were being slaughtered overnight by giant wolves and mist that suck creatures blood.

    The entire book was a train wreck of convoluted dialog and unbelievable characters. The men talk about their emotions all of the time, and some scenes literally made me cringe. After a particularly intimate scene the other two male pack mates stick their head in and ask to cuddle. Um, YUCK! And that's only one of the scenes that is bound to give you the hibbie-jibbies.

    I really wish that I could say something better, and debated leaving a review at all. I usually go with the 'if you can't say anything nice,' philosophy but felt that the reviews needed a shred of truth. After all I bought the book because there were so many good reviews... I feel like I was lied to.

    Better than expected!

    To be honest I didn't think it would be all that great, especially after reading the sample from my nook. But as I read on it captivated me and I just had to know what was going to happen next. As it turns out here I am reading it at 11:38 at night when I should be studying for m y exam tomorrow... anyways I thought it was a little unrealistic, come on now what dad would let his little girl sleep in a hotel room with a boy and spend a crap load of money? Although it sounds fun :)But don't we all need a little unrealsticness to escape our everyday lives every now and then?

    This book was...

    Horrible! It was badly written, the characters werent given any depth, and there was hardly any detail. Im thirteen, and I felt like I was reading something written by someone several years my junior.

    Interesting concept but falls flat

    The idea could have been really good, but the characters are so flat, and the dialog so stilted it is impossible to really get into the story.

    Don't bother.

    I couldn't get past 20pgs of this horrible, awful, cringe-worthy writing. Maybe the premise and glowing reviews will draw you in, but please, save yourself and don't waste $5 on this!

    AMAZING!!!

    I read the book cover to cover in one night. It beats twilight hands down. The books pulls in as soon as you reading the first page. I will not be disappointed. Im ready for the next book to come out already,Caterine Banks novel Song of the Moon is a most read.

    I wish I would have read the reviews...

    While I dont like to slam anybody, I really wish I would have read some reviews earlier. Most authors dont put out award winning novels with their early works, you learn and grow as a writer as you do with anuthing else. With that being said, this book was a major disappointment. The description was interesting, and I thought the premise was good, but the execution was lacking. I agree with other reviewers when I say that the heroine was severely annoying. Way to nod and smile. The whole point to having reviews is to have others' honest opinions. Mine is that I didnt really like the books, mostly because of the characters rather than the plotline. However, that is not to say that I won't read anything from this author again because the potential for a great book was there. Hope this review helped!

    Teen Romance

    This book threw me for a loop. I was expecting a complex and intricate story, but instead sat through a journal of an ignorant girl who could not figure out the simplest things. Did she really not find it odd that all these deaths were happening?! That is ridiculous. Oh, and let's not forget that she chooses to ignore that the peternatural creatures are taking over the world, and she gives up on asking any questions! I hate to say this, but it was a horrible romance novel. At least twilight sounded grown up.

    Nothing that makes you want to stay up and read

    I got tired of it very quickly. Very monotone and nothing special.

    BookWhisperer Reviews Song of the Moon

    Catherine Banks's debuting novel Song of the Moon is a captivating and unique read. Artemis has spent years sheltered from everything including herself. When her Father and Best Friend take one last trip, before he leaves for college, the world becomes impossible to avoid. After meeting her Father's odd friend Kato things begin to unravel, and it seems as though the world is all of a sudden chasing her.

    This was a truely incredible story that I found captivating and exhillarating. Artemis is a rare and gifted young girl that I find resilient. No matter what life seems to throw her; she just picks herself back up again. I love her character, and enjoy her witty and careful personality. Even when everything in her being pulls her toward Ares; she is grounded and tries to analyze the reality of the situation. Her character makes this story possible to conceive.

    As a self published novel this was a great display of potential for this author. With a few minor humps I look for great things to come from her in the future. At the beginning I experienced some shaky moments, but as the story progresses the flows seemed to level out. All in all the story comes together very nicely. It has been a pleasure reviewing this book, and with dedication it has proved to be a awesome read. I am anxious to continue the series, and look forward to seeing what lies ahead of Ares and Artemis.

    Fantastic start to an amazing series!

    Song of The Moon is one of those books that draws you in and doesn't let go.

    The way the story starts out I thought it was going in a different direction that it ended up going. The author blew me away with the story and the characters. Artemis is a strong, independent chick. She hasn't had many friends except for her best friend Brett.

    I liked Brett in the beginning, he's a good friend but somewhat overprotective. His story line just kinda ends so I am wondering if he will reappear sometime later in the series. When Ares comes along, I totally forgot about Brett. I mean he is like a God, so hot and romantic. Whew I was wishing I was Artemis lots of the time. I mean she has this Godlike werewolf mate plus two more super hot werewolf twins Koda and Matt in the pack. What more could a girl want? At first she is not sure if she should feel the way she does so quickly towards Ares, she falls fast and hard for him. I would too if he came my way.

    Ok yes there are really hot werewolves and I mean really hot, vampires and sidhe (fairies) but there is so much more to the story. The plot is well written, the characters are all so likeable and the ending will leave you wanting more. It has everything I love in a paranormal romance... action, romance, hot guys, kick butt heroines and a cliffhanger ending. Did I mention lots of romance and hot guys? LOL

    I am reading the sequel right now and it does not disappoint, it is so good too.! I can't wait to continue with this amazing series. A truly spectacular read for any young adult paranormal romance fan!

    This was not only a really good and fun book but also a long one.Now at the beginning ms Banks forgets some of her story that worried me,I was afraid she might continue to do that through out the book-she did not,the book was really good and as I got toward the end found myself hoping she wrote a sequel-thank you ms Banks for not disappointing me!Some typo's but who cares,I just read around them.Come on people how often do we get a really good story,long at a reasonable price???

    What?!

    The plot was good, and interedting enough to keep me reading until the end, but at some points in the book, I just put down the book and scoffed at not only the heroine's inability to deduce simple facts, but also at her complete and utter lack of a spine. I mean, seriously? Ares is obviously abusive, and their so-called "romance" was based on the belief that Artemis must obey his every command, because his "the dominant alpha male". Don't get me wrong. I'm not a radical feminist or anything, but I saw Artemis as a sad attempt to personify the male dominance in a wolf pack.
