As a fan of paranormal young adult books, I dove into THE MAYFAIR MOON with great expectations. On the whole, I wasn't overwhelmed by the story, but I did like it.

THE MAYFAIR MOON is the story of Adria, a teenage girl living in Georgia with her beloved sister, Alex, her co-dependant mother and abusive step-father. After the two girls are attacked by what seems to be a werewolf, which is mistakenly attributed to their step-father, they are sent to live with an aunt and uncle in Maine. Alex is changed by the attack. She is sullen, distant, angry and eventually runs away from home, joining what appears to be a cult. Adria, desperate to find and save his sister, is befriended by a group, a mysterious family, the Mayfairs. Adria is immediately attracted to Isaac Mayfair, son of their leader. Being pulled in two directions by two warring packs, between her sister's group and the Mayfairs, Adria must decide between her sister and her heart.

So as I said, I did like THE MAYFAIR MOON. I found the author's writing to be precise and easy to follow. This is a book that I was able to read extremely quickly, despite the length. The writing is very descriptive, setting-wise, but never felt bogged down with details.

I also liked her take on werewolves. It wasn't just bites and full moons. There was a lot more going on than what I normally see. The werewolf world was full of centuries long vendettas, blood bonds, and political conflict. These variations added just enough to the story to make me feel as if I were reading something completely new.

But there were also a few things about THE MAYFAIR MOON that made it less than great, for me. For starters, the story moves fairly slowly. Once the girls move to Maine, there isn't a lot going on.

First off, this book is in a genre that is absolutely saturated and inundated with novels that are sub-par, haphazardly thrown together, and without a "real" sense of history, mythology, or simple logic. The Mayfair Moon is a standout in a such a way that it can cross over the YA genre, and move into other genres and appeal to a wide audience that hasn't happened since the "Twilight" series - and I DEFINITELY agree that Twilight is sub par in comparison to The Mayfair Moon.

As a previous reviewer stated, The Mayfair Moon is rich with its own history and mythology which stands out in comparison to other Paranormal novels. It definitely IS a fresh take on the werewolf genre - where werewolves are WEREWOLVES, not some sappy tortured soul with puppy eyes that only wishes for a normal life. This book does to werewolves what NEEDS to be done to vampires, bringing them back to their carnal, predatory roots. It's a breath of fresh air and finally brings the werewolves back to what they are - monstrous beasts.

The main characters in the books are developed in such a way that, while occasionally being borderline realistic in their reactions to events, leaves allot for your imagination to fill in. I found this to be a truly effective manner to be able to put YOURSELF in the characters shoes, and truly empathize with what is going on with the characters. Relationships which may appear haphazardly thrown together to others, in my case, left allot of room for my own emotions to be brought into the story and fill in the spaces.

Rating: *****

I only have high praises for this book. It was one HUGE roller coaster of adventure. It never slowed down. Seriouslyâ¦. If you want a book that does not disappoint, this is it.
Two sisters, Adria and Alex, start out in the south living with their mother and their drunken, verbally abusive step-father. Within the very first chapters, however, you are thrown into immediate adventure when both sisters get attacked on the way home by a werewolf. The girls are both left wounded and only days after the attack, they are sent off to Maine to live with their Uncle and Aunt when Child Protective Services mistake the girls injuries as the fault of their step-dad. Alex, the older and more protective sister, starts to act strange. Adria is left to her own devices to try and figure out what is wrong with her sister (who ends up disappearing one night with a guy in the woods), making a place for herself in Maine, and discovering all things werewolf. You meet Adriaâ(tm)s new friends and you also meet the Mayfair family. A unique family in their own right. Zia is an immediate fave of mine and becomes a true friend to Adria. Nathan is the perfect older brother and Daisy is just as sweet as her name. Isaac Mayfair is hot, dark, and captivating. Many others evolve but Iâ(tm)ll let the reader discover them all one by one.

You are quickly swept into an underworld of werewolves, the workings of the pack, and the animosity between two pack leaders and their âaefamiliesâ. I felt the emotions that Adria felt as her world slowly becomes unraveled and she is forced to discover and learn what being a part of this new life requires.
