It is easy to tell that Handeland has put a lot of thought and effort into her novels. I particularily enjoy the fact that each book is able to stand by itself, but provides those extra little details for readers who have read the whole series. I have read all books prior to this installment, and one after, and it is a series I recommend to anyone who love paranormal romance! That being said, this one was probably my least favorite of all (there has to be one, right?). I think the reason is that I don't identify with the main character as much as I had in other novels. However, it was still a very romantic and entertaining read!
I didn't have the pleasure to read the series in order, but I hope if you are interested, you might...be sure to start with "Blue Moon". :)

I do enjoy Lori Handeland's Nightcreature Series. These books are full of imagination and the stories are great with just the right balance of sexual tension and the supernatural! Kudos!

This is my favorite of the series to date - I really like the way Cassandra is written. The incorporation of voodoo and zombies gave this book a slightly different flavor than its predecessors and was a great change of pace.

I enjoyed the others Ms Handeland wrote, but this one....I don't know. Seemed like Devon Murphy was in it for the sex only. I didn't read any love there. He made infrequent (booty) calls to Cassandra in the middle of the night. Yet, she knew little about him nor did she have ANY contact with him outside of the bedroom. Great sex does not always equal LOVE.

I'd read Handeland's other Moon books and enjoyed them, but I was let down with 'Midnight Moon.' I really liked Cassandra in the previous novel, 'Crescent Moon,' but Ms. Handeland made Cassandra into a thing where, if you toss a bit of sex her way, she forgets all else. That's all there really is to her story: she meets 'mysterious bad boy thief' Devon Murphy in Haiti while looking for a way to break a curse, they talk, get shot at, meet a voodoo master, have sex, learn new things about shapeshifters, have sex, more sex, and Cassandra has to go back home to New Orleans but he meets up with her there for some more sex. That's it. The only saving grace in the story is the rich details of Haiti and voodoo, but it comes in small pinches. I'm all for sex but it could have been so much more magical if 'sex' didn't equal 'love' in this book.

Cassandra lived in Southern California happily married to her soulmate and raising their five year old daughter Sarah who loved ballet. That was then and this is now as she has become Priestess Cassandra, a voodoo practitioner in the French Quarter of New Orleans though she has not reconciled the religion¿s theory that all deaths have a purpose with her daughter¿s murder. She blames her drug dealing ex-spouse for that and testified against him before vanishing into the Witness Protection Program. However, her objective for turning to Voodoo may be at hand as she is in Haiti hoping to find Master Jacques Mezareau, who it is rumored, resurrects the dead. Cassandra will pay him any price if he can resurrects her daughter unaware that he is an outlawed Egbo, a punisher and controller of slaves. She hires Devon Murphy to guide her to Mezareau¿s remote village. However, , Cassandra soon learns first hand how and why Mezareau raises the dead, but is unable to control this new power she has obtained, which if unchecked will destroy her loved ones, Devon and Sarah, once the MIDNIGHT MOON reaches its acme. --- The latest Lori Handeland¿s lunar romantic fantasy (see CRESCENT MOON, DARK MOON, HUNTER¿S MOON, and BLUE MOON) is a terrific entry in a strong series. The story line is action-packed but it is the fixated Cassandra, who needs to bring back her beloved Sarah just to begin living again, who makes the thriller work. Readers will feel her loss that¿s he still grieves and her quest that has taken her to the realm of voodoo in New Orleans and Haiti. With fabulous twists that impact the mental balance of the heroine, Ms. Handeland provides another enchanting novel that will send her elated readers howling at the MIDNIGHT MOON. --- Harriet Klausner
