Editorial Reviews

Review

''Deft humor, hints of romance, and well-constructed suspense leaven the occasional sturdy earnestness, while the rejection of toned hotties as the embodiment of supernatural power in favor of women whose lives have prepared them with the wisdom for their new role is refreshing.'' --Publishers Weekly

A great insight for women of a certain age... I don't want to give away the story.

The humor, suspense, and well paced plot, along with fascinating characters made this a really fun read.

I felt the chapter titles didn't quite work and they kind of irked me a few times.

Format: Paperback
Bottom line: A different take on werewolves that starts strong, but loses itself in a swirl of indistinct action scenes and unconvincing villains.

How does it treat women/same-sex relationships? The novel is set in the present day, but all of the characters in the novel are accepting of same-sex relationships, with no one reacting to them any differently than they do to different-sex relationships. Since the novel is told from the point of view of the main character, a middle-aged divorcee, we do hear some of her doubts about whether her feelings for another woman are sexual and what it would mean for her to come out as a lesbian, but none of her thoughts are self-loathing or repulsed.

Does it have explicit sex scenes?: No. There's a f/f kiss, but that's it.

Would I read it again? No. I didn't mind reading it, but there was nothing that would draw me back.

Would I publish it? No, not as it stands. The concepts (older women becoming werewolves at menopause, werewolves as an all-female community, a werewolf novel that's not all about romance and sex appeal) are worth a novel or several, and the book starts out strong, with a smooth early action scene, but the later plot is a hazy blur of imprecise action scenes, periods of inactivity, and villains that don't seem half so intelligent or as much of a threat as the characters seem to think they are.

I'm not usually a werewolf (or vampire) novel reader, because I'm not usually a paranormal romance reader, and it's rare I don't see the one being synonymous for the other. Alphas falling for mortals, mortals falling for alphas, vampires falling for werewolves, new wolves learning to run a pack and being courted by multiple stunningly attractive romantic interests...it's not my thing.

I'm fond of werewolf stories in general. They usually have a roughness that isn't quite all loves and blood that the vampire tales give. And this story doesn't disappoint in that manner. It had running out in the woods, dominance games (though somewhat muted), and generally a playful exploration of discovery.

One of the things that makes the story stand out is the age when the main character becomes a werewolf. The title, Silver Moon, gives a little away, but it is well in the twilight of a woman's life. I like that part, but I felt the author could have done so much more with it. As a hook, it was great, but it didn't really explore the interaction of being old and being alive. Instead, it felt like the age was more of a tacked on thing instead of being integral to the story.

The action bits of the story didn't really excite me. I thought it would. In the beginning, I was drawn in to see how things would turn out, but as the plot was revealed more, it didn't really stand out.

Fortunately, the character did help with the action. I loved a number of the characters in their story. The richness of their scenes, the interaction, and even the little hints of werewolf culture really added to the story. It gave it a good life.

Lundoff's writing style is fairly smooth to read but it slowed me down. For a 208 page book, it took me about five hours to read. Usually it was a little turn of phase more than dense writing. Once I got into the style (around page 68), I got more comfortable with it.

I got the print version of the book at WisCon because I loved how the cover felt. It also had a very stark feel which drew me in. The typography is fairly well done, with font choices that fit with the story. It was a little small for my tastes but still readable.

Prolific short-story writer Catherine Lundoff reinvents the werewolf novel in a way that only she can.

When Becca Thornton realizes she is on the cusp of menopause, strange things begin happening. Such as the lengthening of her teeth and growing thick fur. Like getting your first period, Becca's predicament first seems a curse--and she's left both literally and figuratively naked. She soon finds out there's no respite for women; we are shouldered not only with our reproductive tasks, but when that's over it's on to protecting the community. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

There's plenty of good guys vs. bad guys in this novel and the hint of romance (potential sequel? Yes?) but at the heart of it all I believe Lundoff is concerned with what we do with the magic we've been given.

That's what makes a hero.

Instead of diminishing into invisibility women--at menopause--are uplifted into a more powerful stage, transformed periodically. :-)
However they are still profiled--this time as the enemy. Delightful ambiguities.

Could not finish it because after reading about half of it, I lost interest. I generally love werewolf books and any science fiction type books but it lacked substance and even as an older woman myself, it did not appeal to me on any level.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sacchi on May 19, 2012
Format: Paperback
An engrossing, refreshing, and action-filled book, with characters real enough that even the werewolf aspect doesn't interfere with a willing suspension of disbelief. It even, at times, enhances it. Women finding an empowerment that comes with menopause is a great theme, and the main character Becca's personal (and lupine) development is both appealing and entertaining. Beyond the individual women portrayed here, I found a special pleasure in the way the women as a group worked together, which, for a community bonded along the lines of a wolf pack, is altogether as it should be--and can be, even in everyday human life.

Silver Moon should appeal to readers who like stories that are about more than romance, or sex, or even shapeshifting, even though the main characters happen to be lesbians, and are most definitely werewolves.
