About the Author
Award-winning writer Ioana Visan has always dreamed about reaching the stars, but since she can't, she writes about it. After fighting the apocalypse aftermath in "Human Instincts", she played with shapeshifters in "Blue Moon Café Series: Where Shifters Meet for Drinks", she dealt with vampires in "The Impaler Legacy" series, and then she designed prosthetics in "Broken People" before tackling longer works like a fantasy trilogy and a science fiction series. Aside from publishing short stories in various Romanian magazines and anthologies, she published a Romanian short story collection "Efectul de nautil" and the Romanian edition of "Human Instincts". She received the Encouragement Award from The European Science Fiction Society at Eurocon 2013. For more information, please visit http://www.ioanavisan.tk

As a paranormal collection of short stories this works very well. The stories are long enough to provide enough information to make the characters believable and compelling, but short enough to fill in those moments when you need just a little something to read but don't have time for a full novel or novella. There is also enough difference in the stories that they are complete and yet there is an underlying theme to the collection so each story leads to the next seamlessly.
Well written and crafted this is a collection I am sure those who enjoy the paranormal will want to add to their collection. Fun, witty with bits of wisdom interspersed with good storytelling. A little romance, a little mayhem, what's not to like? I will recommend this one to my friends.

In this story it becomes apparent that even were-critters have some degree of community pride. When a large pack of were-mice approaches the Mayor with a development project proposal, he privately confides to his wife, a were-fox, that he will not have "those vermin" in his town. When he learns they have misrepresented themselves, and are actually were-rats, his determination is redoubled. This is an engaging story, with a good dose of humor mixed in. I am delighted to see this is billed as a “Series”; that implies there will be more stories to come concerning this community of modern shape-shifters and their Blue Moon Café. This story is quite suitable for middle-grade readers on up to the elderly reader. I believe it would be particularly appropriate for the reluctant reader, who is sure to be surprised at how involved he becomes in the various short stories as well as the overall tale. I definitely recommend this book by the very talented Ioana Visan. I also urge you to keep an eye open for more books penned by her, as she is very capable of building an entertaining story.

I enjoyed these stories. I wasn't sure what to expect but I am glad I read it. There is humor, suspense, and action here. I liked the werewolves, not too crazy about the humans and some of the other weres, and not so sure about the werecrows. Each story is a little vignette with a few people from each group. The story finishes but the characters may turn up in another vignette later in the book.
The world building is good. It is an interesting place. Some of the stories could have sequels to them. I want to see more of this world and I want to see what happens when the moon returns.
