Half Moon by Jordan Deen

Faced with death, Lacey Quinn ran away from the only family she�d ever known.

That... was just the beginning.

As the decision she�s made sinks in, Lacey struggles to fit in with the pack and find the key to bonding with her werewolf soul mate, Brandon. But, lies can only be concealed for so long.

Adjusting to a powerful new best friend, a twelve-year-old roommate with a nauseating Barbie fetish, and a lost love that won�t stop haunting her dreams, she knows she has no hope of having a normal future�ever again.

After a long talk with the dead mother she never knew, and an almost deal-breaking night out with Brandon, Lacey starts spiraling into the underworld�a place where all things are possible and everyone is out to kill her.

With mysterious legends of witches and sorcery marring her past and clouding her future, she quickly learns�werewolves aren�t the only ones lurking in the woods...waiting to claim her powers for their own.

The Mares? Well, they are the least of her worries.

I'm to page 130 and hate to continue. Lacey is a 10 year old...in mind. They have no electricity to charge her ipod, but can plug I a curling iron. Realy? Gees get the story straight. Again only around 180 pages. Not a book. Could be a good book if it had the pages and consistency.

4.5 Stars!! Wow Jordan blew me away with fantastic sequel. It was a perfect continuation of The Crescent! It was well written and the story was more developed than the first. Half Moon picks up where The Crescent left off. I loved Lacey in this one. We watch her grow and adjust to her new life. And even though she made me frustrated at times and made me want to jump in the story and scream at her, I understood her by the end of the story. Everything just started to make sense. After reading The Crescent, I had a MILLION questions and they were finally answered. As much as I hate when a book finishes with a million and one questions are unanswered, I love it at the same time. It just builds up and when the answers are finally revealed my jaw dropped! The characters in Half Moon were amazing. I freaking loved them. Some books I can really connect with all the characters we meet and some of them I cant. This one was one of those books where I liked and connected with all of them. I loved hearing about the history of the pack. And Brandon... God, I loved him. I was so on the fence of what team I was on in the Crescent. But he really stole my heart in this one. He is just soo freaking hot. He's such a badass but is sweet at the same time. He is loyal and kind and would do anything for the woman he loves. The fact that he is a wolf just makes it 10x better. I don't know, if I were to date a wolf.. Brandon would be how I want my man to be. But I also liked Alex. He was hot, caring and so protective. I'll tell you, that is a tough decision to make because it's literally a win-win situation. Jordan really know's how to suck you into the pages. The only time I stopped reading was when I needed to eat or sleep. Half Moon has a lot more action and a ton of twists and turns to keep you sucked into the story and the pages turning. Like I mentioned when I reviewed The Crescent, I recommend this series to anyone. This series is a hidden gem! Get to reading, you won't regret it!

Reviewed by Sylvia H. for Readers Favorite Jordan Deen's novel "Half Moon" is a must read and is the the follow up book to "The Crescent". The story continues as Lacey must find a way to fully bond with her true soul mate Brandon, who is a werewolf and the future leader of the powerful Amana wolf sect pack. Lacey who has had a very difficult six months, finds out that she is predestined to be a wolf and is part of a large, very powerful wolf family. After being taken from the only home and family that she has ever known, and finding out that her parents are not her real parents, Lacey must find a way to accept her new life and her new fate. Lacey is of all things, a hybrid - half witch, half werewolf - and is the very first of her kind. She discovers that she must fulfill her destiny and the prophecy that is her birth right and become the powerful, future leader of the Amana wolf pack. I loved Jordan Deen's werewolf book "Half Moon". I was so excited to read and follow the story line of "Half Moon", that I devoured her book word for word, page by page and chapter by chapter. I felt so deeply entwined in the story and the characters that I could easily envision the surroundings of the makeshift wolf camp in Oregon and the pain that the characters felt through the vivid but mostly heart stopping descriptions that author Jordan Deen has provided. And while reading it, I found it to be a wonderful, and exciting cross between Stephanie Meyer's phenomenal vampire/werewolf 'Twilight' series, and a wonderful, exciting mixture of the 'Shiver' series and the 'Wolves of Mercy Falls' by author Maggie Stiefvater. I loved author Jordan Deen's book 'Half Moon" so much that when I finished reading it, I absolutely HAD to buy and read her first book, for the spell binding story of "The Crescent". I was again very pleasantly pleased and excited by the story of that as well, and can't wait until she delivers book three in her breathtaking, and wonderfully captivating wolf saga.

OMG...I have been waiting forever for this one to come out. The first one The Crescent was amazing. This one blew the first one away in my opinion. I loved how Lacey and Brandon took more control over their relationship and didn't listen to what everyone was telling them to do and try. When I first started reading it I thought I was going to miss Alex not being in it much cause I really liked him in the first one and thought he was the best choice for Lacey. I was so wrong, Brandon is definitely the one. I was excited to see what things Lacey found out about her family and how everything brought her and Brandon closer. The new characters are really cool too. I like Brea and Catch, they fit really good with Lacey and Brandon. I didn't like Liam and Bailey though but I guess that is probably how it is supposed to be. The entire time I was reading I did not want to put this one down and only did when I had to. This book had action, adventure romance and a great story line, everything I love. Can't wait to see how it all ends in the final book when it is released. Jordan Deen rocks and I can't wait to read her future projects.

(from Murphy's Library) I thought for sure I was going to make Maeva go crazy with how much this book affected me. The true thing about this story is that you fell torn. You feel sorry for Brandon, but, at the same time, in a level, you understand what Lacey is feeling. We start this book reading about how much Lacey is struggling with her situation. She loves Alex, but, at the same time, she can't stop caring for Brandon. It was difficult to see it on the first pages, as I often thought about her as selfish and b*tchy, but, yeah, she truly cares about Brandon, with Alex in her mind and dreams or not. I think her strings to Brandon are so strong that even with everything that happened against them in this book-and I'm talking about against them as them like a couple-they still had something alive between them without figuring out anything that was happening. Half Moon is what made me see how much magic Jordan Deen has in her words. The book was so fast-the feelings, the facts, the talks, the people-that you really truly appreciate the effort and the words from Jordan when you see every piece of the puzzle falling into place. It was amazing to see the way Jordan has an intricate story while, at the same time, she can carry the romance with all the needs it has. The balance is wonderful, and I truly think Jordan grew as a writer with Half Moon. The book is full of force and feelings. It is the type of book you can't put down without feeling remorse. To tell you the truth, I didn't put it down till I read the last page, and even then I still had the book open to quote my favorite parts. Alex seems to be, during almost the entire book, just a ghost whispering in the background, but even like this, it is amazing how much he was present. I suffered because of it. I got angry at Lacey more than once because her thoughts seemed to always return to him, but I got thinking, after everything, that Lacey is a girl like us: when people put pressure on her her defense is to react. Maybe Alex was a way for her to react, even if we learn more about how their strings were so tight. I have too many thoughts about this book, and that always happens with books I like too much. Like this one. Jordan is sure a joy to read, and I can't wait to continue figuring her story out.
