Publisher's Summary

After a nightmarish encounter with a werewolf, 17-year-old Adria Dawson loses her sister, but gains the love of a mysterious young man and his legendary family. Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable 'illness' and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from. As unspeakable secrets unfold all around Adria, impossible choices become hers to bear. Ultimately, no matter what path she takes, her life and the lives of those she loves will be in peril. As she learns about the werewolf world she also learns why her place in it will change the destinies of many.

An average book which would appeal to werewolf fan

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It occupied me enough while I was cleaning, and by the end I was interested enough to finish reading it on my kindle so I guess it was


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most interesting was the mystery of the werewolves. Least interesting, the romance.


What aspect of Kate Reinders’s performance would you have changed?

None


Was The Mayfair Moon worth the listening time?

Yes


Any additional comments?

Mayfair Moon was an enjoyable enough read, and I'm always quite happy to be reading about werewolves, and this book definitely has it's fair share of some hot, sexy specimens, especially Isaac.

The main character, Adria is a likeable enough character, though slightly annoying at times, but not enough so to hinder my enjoyment of the book.

The romance bothered me though. There's an instant attraction on both sides, and from the way things were playing out, and some comments that were made by Isaac's family members, I felt we were heading towards an imprinting or bonding, which would have been fine with me, but when that turned out not to be the case, the romance just didn't work for me then. They're feeling were just too intense too quickly for my liking. Thankfully though, there were other points of interest which managed to hold my attention to this book.

Something happened at the end of this book and I think I know what it is, I'm just not sure who did it? I'm really interested in seeing how that will play out, because no matter who did it, it's not really a good thing. I think there'll be hell to pay, especially from reading the blurb of book 2.

The secondary characters were also quite interesting, especially Harry and Zia, who became Adria's best friends. And then there's Alex, Adria's sister, who's living with the enemy family. So I'm definitely curious about the next book which I've already downloaded from Audible and I'm looking forward to listening to.

Hairy twilight teen with excellent vocabulary

What did you like best about The Mayfair Moon? What did you like least?

The story was entertaining in that bubblegum insomnia, I know what's coming next kind of way. Sometimes it's comforting to know who is who.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Twists, turns. Make the teen talk like a teen. I expect that there needs to be some more interaction between the author and the demographic in order for authenticity. Also, the fact that the step fathe 'didn't hit us' so it wasn't abuse' seemed to be sending mmmmm yes the wrong message.


What didn’t you like about Kate Reinders’s performance?

At the the end of almost every sentence it ended in a lilt. Like a question. Otherwise she did a good job.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No


Any additional comments?

I did finish the book so there is something to it that kept me listening. The concept is there. Or I'm hooked on the koolaid we all know as the twilight knockoff.
