From the Publisher

Cry for the Moon is a fantasy novel aimed largely at young adults, although it contains many subtle and thought-provoking elements intended to appeal to an older audience as well. It is the third book by William Woodall, following The Prophet of Rain in 2008 and Beneath a Star-Blue Sky earlier in 2009. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

I'm an author of young adult and middle grade adventure novels with a Christian flavor, including the Last Werewolf Hunter series and other books.

My books are mostly fantasy, and sometimes science fiction. I like to make my readers laugh, and sometimes give them some food for thought along the way. Quite a few readers have commented that my stories are unlike anything else they've ever read, which I take as a compliment.

I'm told that my stories often have a southernish, Huckleberry-Finn type atmosphere in some ways. They're usually set somewhere in the South, primarily Texas, Louisiana, or Arkansas, which is my own home turf. Every place in the world has good things to offer, and I like to display all the good things about this place that I love.

The Christian aspect of my work is upbeat and sunny, the kind of thing that appeals even to non-Christians. It's meant to be an integral part of the story, not just something tacked on.

I love to hear from fans who enjoyed my work, so if you'd like to make a comment or ask a question, please feel free to message me. And thanks so much for reading my work!

An excellent adventure novel that follows a young boy on his journey to "freedom" of soul... really surprisingly good!

When I first started reading this book, I almost put it down. It seemed odd, starting out with a werewolf scene that almost turned me off from the book, since I have no experience with this author. However, I kept going and I was REALLY pulled into the story. The beginning was then fitting for the story as well, the whole point is that you are repulsed by the start, same as the main character!!

An excellent book by a newish author... he should be in the ranks of the rest of the Christian Fiction authors!! Very excellent writing, very good storyline, excellent, well-rounded characters! Highly recommend! I am going to read his other books now when I get a moment!

I read Cry for the Moon in one go. Once I started, I just had to keep going until I finished. I found it to be original, warm and entertaining. I found myself completely empathising with young Zach.
I loved every page.

Okay, by now you know the theme,premise,and simply the summary for this book, which has been done well by some other reviewers. So, I will review from the manner in what I feel about the book and the author. If you do an intro sample please do not be turned off as others have mentioned by the rather startling, graphically, detailed depiction of a very quick incident that almost made me think that it maybe more of a horror flick than what I thought it was. Now I can laugh at that part because it is nothing of the sort. It was necessary and if you read past that, the reward is a book that is well written in a very simple yet poignant manner. So much so that sometimes I felt more like I was talking to Zach himself than reading about him. That style appealed to me so much but I was pleasantly surprised by some things that I simply weren't prepared for or expected. I found myself following Zach and unable to leave this story because I had to walk with him to the end. I still sort of find myself yearning to hear from an older Zach. From the perspective of a young man, who tells how those choices affected and shaped the man that he became but you sort of come away feeling that somethings in life will always be left unanswered and also that you will have to accept that and still strive to be pro-active about who and what shapes your life. While hoping,believing,trusting,dreaming, and making the choices to live the best life that you can, with the cards that are laid out before you. This book was special to me for many reasons that I cannot put here but let me tell you that if you get this one, you will not regret it. It's funny at times, and I had come to look forward to and expect the humor but what I didn't expect was to find myself up at 5a.m.Read more ›

Zach is your typical kid who loves to read, play with his friends, and hike through the woods. However, Zach's family has a dark secret. They are werewolves! Now that Zach has reached the proper age, his family wants to help him transform into a werewolf. But Zach refuses to become a monster and decides the only way to escape this grim fate is to run away from home. Here begins the adventure which will change Zach's life forever.

Through an effective use of first-person narration, Woodall allows readers to share Zach's story. It is an intimate look at the challenges a young boy faces as he grows into a man and the tough choices he has to make to maintain his innocence. Cry for the Moon immerses the reader into the dangerous and lonely world of a young boy on the run determined to make his own way in the world even at the cost of forever alienating himself from his family.

I enjoyed reading Cry for the Moon for allowing me to accompany Zach on his journey of self-discovery as well as the book's positive message. Unlike the more graphically violent books written in this genre, Cry for the Moon steers clear of the expected clichés and instead focuses on exploring the inner workings of Zach and his interaction with the people in his life.

If you're looking for the classic werewolf story that indulges in flesh-ripping gore and mindless violence, this isn't it. I do, however, recommend Cry for the Moon to anyone looking for a compelling tale of faith, hope, and love. This is the first book that I have read by William Woodall. But it certainly won't be the last.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. I think readers of all ages will love this inspirational tale. I was hooked from the start. On the surface it is a humourous adventure and yet if you look deeper it is a story about life and searching for something more. Twelve year-old Zach comes from a family of loup garous (werewolves). He has now reached the age where he is ready to be initiated and become a 'monster' as he puts it. His family have already set the wheels in motion to turn him into a fully fledged loup garou. This is when Zach makes his escape fleeing from the family home under some pressure to avoid being there for the next full moon when he will be expected to make his first kill.
The story is written in the first person from Zach's viewpoint, in a loose style reminiscent of JD Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye'.
It is the story of Zach's quest to find his uncle Justin who is one of the only members of his family who is not a werewolf. He has never met his uncle before and doesn't even know where he lives. He sets out on a search from Tennessee to Texas, living rough and getting by on the little money he can make along the way. It's a fun read and contains some inspirational writing. In his search for his uncle, Zach finds more than he set out to find. On a deeper level the book is also about turning from the dark and finding God. It is also a story about the choices that we have to make in life, and how difficult those choices can be.
