I started reading this book at 5 p.m. and finished it just after midnight because I didn't want to put it down. I made my husband fix dinner and put the kids to bed so I could keep reading. I loved being pulled into the Philippine culture. The descriptions of the people and customs were so clear that I could picture it all. And the new mythology of the langbuan was creepy in a fun way without being gory or over the top. The lead character, Antonio, was very likeable and relateable and I was really rooting for him. A couple of twists at the very end were a great surprise. All together a really fun read and worth staying up past bedtime!

Set in a remote village in the Philippines, Antonio is a good kid who gets in trouble. Like many, he wants good things for others, but doesn't always make the right decisions. The village is attacked every dark moon by flying zombies. That is the way it has always been. Until the new priest suggests that it doesn't have to be that way. Less dark than I expected, the series of events kept the book moving.
The author's husband is an acquaintance of mine and I thought I would pick up her book when I had time. My expectations were exceeded by this enjoyable read. Too dark (for me) to read in one setting, I would find myself drawn back to Antonio and the priest as they tried to change their world.

Ghost Moon Night has to be one of the funnest reads I’ve read in a long time. Scary, intriguing… it was a page turner. I could visualize the creatures as they came out of nowhere and attacked. I’ve never read a book like this, so it was great to not know and not be able to guess what would happen next. I liked that. I have to say, the ending was completely unexpected, and I loved it all the more because of it, although the loved character shocked me. I would love to see more of Jewel’s writing. I think she could do a whole collection of books based on Philippino (sp?) myths or legends, or scary stories. What a great idea!

This book had so much more than I expected. The author pulls the reader into the Filipino culture right from the start and weaves tales of creatures and lore into the lives of her characters. I love that the characters are human. They are not perfect and they make mistakes. They're much more believable that way. I highly recommend Ghost Moon Night to anyone who needs a good story to read the next time the moon casts its shadow.

Ghost Moon Night is an exciting, creepy tale of a cursed village in the Phillipines. It is also a moving coming of age story. I loved the unique setting and the well-developed characters. The book grabbed me right away and held my interest the whole way through to the poignant ending.

I was so impressed when I read this book in manuscript form several years ago that I filed those pages away so I would be sure to have them to read again. (I still have them!) After reading the manuscript, every time I saw Jewel, I'd ask when she was going to publish her fantastically haunting book. I love the mystery in these pages, the exotic setting of the Philippines (a place Jewel knows first hand) and the motivations of the main character in the choices he made, both good and bad. This hero is multi-dimensional, which makes him refreshingly real and easy to relate to. I loved how the roles of the disparate characters introduced throughout the story came together in the end. Even though I read the story years ago, when I recently read my autographed copy of the book (yay!) I was again surprised at all the plot twists. Rich with Philippine culture and folklore and deliciously creepy langbuan, I predict that this is a story you won't soon forget.
I will admit that there were a few places where I wanted a little more time to enjoy the feeling of the moment before being whisked off to the next scene, but moving the story along is better than having it drag. Besides, that is a minor thing compared to a storyline so enduring that my mind has been pulled back to it several times over the years. For being original and memorable and well written, it gets 5 big, shiny stars!

Ghost Moon Night by Jewel Allen is an atmospheric and unusual tale of a village suffering from a long-ago curse, set in the Philippines. It was entirely not what I expected, but I actually enjoyed it more because of that. When I read the blurb of this book, I expected a fast-paced paranormal aventure with a bit of humour thrown in. I certainly got that, but a whole lot more as well.

Allen has managed to create what is essentially a tale about a young man trying to find his place in a village where everyone has known him, and his family, since … well, since forever. Punctuating Antonio’s very ordinary travails in finding a job, being a good son and all the rest of it are some genuinely creepy action scenes featuring flying zombies (some of whom are people that until very recently, lived in the village with Antonio!) with an abiding desire to tear flesh from bones. So instead of just being a zombie, scary book, this is a strange yet satisfying tale with a lot to offer the reader of straight – as in, not paranormal or fantasy – YA fiction.

The Filippino setting and the background themes of religion and cultural tradition running through the book also provide a point of difference for anyone looking for a YA read that isn’t your standard, set-in-a-big-city, sort of a story.
I ended up enjoying this story very much, as much for its sensitive and realistic portrayal of a young man trying to do the best he can and please the people who are important to him as for the freaky langbaun, who have shot up to near the top of my list of “creepiest fictional/mythical monsters”. Definitely give this one a go if you’re looking for something a little bit different and out of the ordinary in the paranormal department.
