"Light of the Moon is beautifully poetic in its writing. David James has crafted a tale that is completely mesmerizing with the blending of two worlds. His artful merging of two strong characters will leave you dying for more." (Helen Boswell, author of Mythology)
"I really don't have enough words to express how amazing this book is. I give Light of the Moon five stars. And that's because I can't give it ten." (Emma Hart, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Love Game)
"If you love rich, lyrical writing, if you're drawn to fated lovers with unimaginable conflicts, if you want to explore a new world that's been carefully crafted with loving attention to detail, or if you've ever looked at the stars and envisioned the constellations coming to life, then you are in for a treat." (Rusty Fischer, author of Zombies Don't Cry)
"The action scenes are well-written and frantic. The romantic moments are quiet and tender, like the first time you tenderly kiss someone while melting in their arms." (M. Joseph Murphy, author of the Activation series)
"Light of the Moon was an amazing story. David James knows how to write. He writes like the poetry is singing to you." (Priya Kanaparti, author of Dracian Legacy) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

David James, the author, was nice enough to provide me a copy of this book. I had already been following him on Twitter and I suggest you do, too. He has a great Twitter account about YA books, writing, and other random interesting things.
Going into reading this book, I didn't know much about what to expect. I read something about a fallen star taking the form of a human, but I didn't know if it was a romance, a sci-fi, or a fantasy. It turns out it is a little of all of that with some mythology and astrology added as well.
This book was beautifully written. David James's prose is practically poetry. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend reading this anywhere you may get easily distracted. You really need to pay attention. I thought, at times, there was too much fluff and elegant language. I also thought there was just a little too much exposition for my liking. I prefer to figure out things on my own , but with prophecies involved I guess some things need to be spelled out. Overall, it was very well written.
I felt this book had a 90's feel to it, or at least a strong 90's influence. I think the author may be a similar age as me so I think that's just what I picked up on.
This book is written from two perspectives: Calum and Kate. It took me some time to get into the story and figure out how these characters would interact. At first, I wasn't a fan of the Kate chapters but I eventually grew to enjoy them.
Prophecy is a big part of this book. I always like when prophecies are in books. It always reminds me of Harry Potter. Prophecies are like ongoing puzzles that you can interpret different ways as the story progresses. I like how the prophecy brought together some interesting mythology and astrology, including the Devil and demons. There wasn't a particular religion referenced. David James created such a big, interesting world with references to a lot of different mythologies.
There were some points in this story where I was surprised by the violence. It was a little more gruesome that I expected. There's a lot of death and described gore.
I was very interested in the Tyler and Calum relationship, but it didn't go where I thought it was going to go. I'm interested in Tyler's role in the sequel. I'm very excited to read the short stories and the sequel.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a heavy read at times and I wouldn't recommend reading it in places with distractions, but I do recommend it. If you are a fan of modern prophecies with references to mythology and demonology, this is a book for you! I give it a 4/5.
It is a beautifully written tale of a boy, a girl, and love. Oh yea, there's also blood, a prophecy, witches, family problems, annoying smelly high school girls, creepy things and so much more. I was a goner with the first sentence, and by chapter 1 I was so sucked in that I just knew- There is absolutely no way possible that I can go to bed without KNOWING, everything. I had to read until the very last word. By the time I read that word, I wanted to crawl inside this creator's mind, build a hut and watch the next story unfold.
Calum and Kate are so different and yet similar at the same time. Kate has an edge to her that says, if her tongue doesn't kill you, her hands will. But Calum blows those thoughts straigth out of her. The romance is a low simmer, but it's there and you can definitely feel it.
There is so much that I can say about this book, but I'm not going to. If you want to read a book that keeps you turning pages, and has your mind warped to where the real world is fuzzy, then read this book. :)
