One thing I loved about this book was the fact Quinn doesn't beat around the bush, "He sat down his fork, and leaned in toward me, his breath smelling like roses and softly spoke, "I know you are a werewolf, hon. So, when did you first turn?" I loved Parker and her sarcastic ways and the fact that she's finally telling her BFF Jackie her secret that she has kept for two years to herself, and bringing her up to speed on all the supernatural stuff as well. "Quinn is a vampire, I'm in love with him and he turned your boyfriend into one too, isn't that awesome. Now, if I turn you into a werewolf we can all be together and happy!!" I truly can't wait for the next book in the series. Amy has a gift with words, and talent, I rarely get excited for book series but I'm really excited about this one!

A wonderful read for all. However, I feel the young reader will be drawn to the book once introduced. Besides the life changing events of the supernatural, the normal teen trials make it totally relate-able.Friends, family, and freaky and the interchange as one merge's to another. Looking forward to more.....

What a nice twist the author gives us in this paranormal romance pairing vampires and werewolves together romantically and as friends. The book begins by detailing Parker's unfortunate and painful journey as a teenage werewolf suffering all alone at each full moon. Then the handsome and unsparkly vampire - Quinn - enters her life. Parker finally has someone she can confide in - another creature of the night who understands her secrets. Although they are supposed to be natural enemies, they quickly find solace in each other and the fairy tale romance begins. Parker finally starts to feel like a normal teenager in love until a brutal murder rocks the small town of Cascade. Love takes a deadly turn and revenge seems to be on the menu. Everyone is keeping secrets and poor Parker doesn't know who to believe anymore. This book is definitely a page turner and will keep you guessing until the end. It is a story about love, friendship, strength, and loyalty. The author does a good job portraying an insecure teenager who really just wants to be "normal." I can't wait to read more about Parker and Quinn! Great first book!

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.
I got this book from Lovers of Paranormal Group of Goodreads for Read & Review.
Well, to be honest the concept didn’t stand out for me compared to the other shifter stories but I liked the execution very much. The writing style of the author seemed to be a little weak in case of grammatical perfection but over all I liked the presentation of the scenes. Regarding the characters I have a mixed feeling, I mean sometimes the main character seemed to be very matured and straight-forward but other times she seemed to be downright stupid.
Over all a good read which deserves a shot of course but I didn’t get much impressed by this book and the most negative factor about this story is that I couldn’t connect with the plot and the characters which I also read in other reviews that they faced this same problem. The cliff-hanger is great and I’ll go through book 2 just for the cliff-hanger in book 1.

This is definitely a very twisty, turny story that will keep you on your toes. The characters are quirky and well described, making it easy to get a handle on what kind of people they are, but at the same time, so many different events happen that it would be difficult to guess where they story could be headed.

When I first started reading, my initial thought was that the characters seemed a little immature. After thought, I realized that this book actually gives a fairly accurate take on how mid-teens act (at least in my experience), and it's just many of the other YA novels out there that make teenagers seem much more mature than the majority of children their age. Once I put this together, I found the characters much more enjoyable and even laughed at some of the names that were being tossed about. I really hadn't even thought of the insult "buttmunch" for at least 15 years. It took me back to my youth, and I enjoyed that feeling.

Although the plot and characters worked well for the story, I did have problems with the writing style. I'm a bit of an English nerd, and there were a lot of editing issues that made it difficult for me to read at times. Examples of this are multiple people talking in one paragraph, the first word of dialogue not being capitalized, or missing/misplaced commas. Under normal circumstances, I try to ignore these grammatical issues and enjoy the story, but in this case the errors were so often that I did start to become annoyed and it detracted from my reading.

Being the author's first book, she did a fantastic job creating a fun and catchy story that would be perfectly suited for the younger end of YA! All this book needs is a few final touches with the editing, and it'll easily be a 4-5 star book!

Note: I received a free copy of this book via smashwords from the author for honest review.

The opening of Cascades of Moonlight by Amy K. McClung immediately piqued my interest. This is not simply because I love shifter books, but I really liked the concept for Cascades of Moonlight. The idea that a girl has to cope with theses changes by herself intrigued me.

Initially, I warmed to Parker's character. I liked her resolve and her focus. With the first introduction of Quinn, I enjoyed their relationship interactions and the range of plot twists that were hard to second guess. This really enabled me to continue enjoying reading this book. However, my attitude toward Parker did change somewhat as the book progressed. In the end, her reactions irritated me a little; they certainly frustrated me. Although, it could be easily interpreted that Amy K. McClung has therefore created a very realistic teenager!

At times the storyline progressed at an unrealistic pace. Events or responses would happen that were a little too coincidental. Yet there were other times in the book where chapters and characters flowed and developed beautifully. I was a little frustrated by the dialogue; the flow between the characters at time was disjointed and didn't flow very naturally. Although, it's no big secret that generally character dialogue in books can disgruntle me a little.

I was really pleased with the way that McClung crafted the ending of this book. It reiterated her skill with plot twists and sets the book up nicely for the next in the series.

Cascades of Moonlight is a creative YA paranormal read with many unique qualities. Bex 'n' Books rated 3.5 fairies (4 stars for Amazon etc).

Good book! Written in the first person perspective and seems like a rral teenage girl is talking and narrarating. At first I thought "oh no... Twilight copy" but it just kept getting better. The plot twists kept me up way too late and the ending kept hitting over and over. Amy, when you read this, text casey and apologize for taking me away from her for a few evenings.

A love story where opposites attract. Vampires and werewolves abound in this sorry. Unfortunately it wasn't everything I was hoping it was, and the lack of longer editing proved to make it a difficult read.

A young girl was bitten by a werewolf and loved with the secret for nearly two years before a vampire moved to town and started attending her high school. He knew from the start what she was and told her so immediately. All she knew was werewolves were supposed to be enemies with vampires but her heart told her there was more to him than the information she had found online. Her closest friends end up becoming something other than human and life as a teenager proves to have many obstacles even for the paranormal. It's not a bad read, just not one that I would read again.

I chose this rating because it is a good clean story, had just the right amount action and kept my interest.
I thought Parkers' parents were too liberal about her relationship with Quine. They seemed to be neglectful of her because they thought nothing about going out of town and leaving her unsupervised. I would still recommend this book to anyone who likes vampire and werewolf genres.
