    One thought on “Crying For The Moon”

    1. This was a fun read. I liked the banter and the characters because they made the story enjoyable and I was thankful for that because I was hoping for a read that'd get me out of the funk I was in and this one definitely did that.Tate and Alex were both so cute to me. It was a treat seeing Alex realize even though he's a vampire he still has friends who care about him. I really liked that.My only faults were I knew the 'mystery' right from the get go. As soon as it was mentioned I knew exactly wh [...]

    2. I should've seen it coming.Really, I should've based on the book's blurb and the fact that there is a pretty big wolf on the damn cover. But I still ended up being surprised by the big role that Alex's werewolf friends played in this book. Not only was I caught off guard but was also pretty annoyed.It felt like Alex and Tate's developing relationship was shunted to the side to constantly deal with Alex's friends wolf-y problems.It seemed like Nick and Peter, who were part of the werewolf pack an [...]

    3. One of the better shifter/vamp stories I've read in the past 3 or 4 years. Very likeable characters, interesting take on the dynamics between supernatural beings, fun romance. Not nearly enough world building, not enough background on the wolf pack, not enough explanation about Tate. But overall, a fun romp. Recommended.

    4. OverallThis novel utilizes all the qualities that make vampire novels great--but also has fun with it. The characters are hilarious, caring, and loyal; the sex is hot; and the plot is well fleshed out. Even though most of the action doesn't happen until the last 20%, the story never drags as each chapter develops characters and cultural history. For those who are familiar with vampire and werewolf lore, you'll appreciate the nods of recognition to some of the standards, while also finding a few [...]

    5. All in all this was a really good book and I'm glad I read it. But there were a couple of things a bit off for me. Saying that, I can't say I didn't really enjoy reading it. Only the last 10% was a bit off for me, the rest was an entertaining read that had me wanting more. If I had to state my main complaint, it would be the secret that was only revealed towards the end. Alex was upfront with Tate when they slept together Tate, however, lied. And it kind of pissed me off.Overall, I would say thi [...]

    6. A few vague spoilers here and there, but nothing that would take away your enjoyment of the book! Still, please approach my review with caution.Complete devouring of a book within a day is usually an indication of me enjoying a book. Despite its relatively manageable length, I did not finish Sarah Madison’s Crying for the Moon in a single day. Except, contrary to my earlier statement, this doesn’t signify my lack of enjoyment at all. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to stay a litt [...]

    7. Un libro divertentissimo , è stato un piacere leggerlo.L'autrice è riuscita a trasformare qualcosa di già visto e su cui è stato scritto tanto, in qualcosa di originale e ironico.Peccato ci sia solo questo libro, mi sarebbe piaciuto avere un seguito , anche sui personaggi secondari.

    8. It has been some time since I've read a good vampire story so I had high hopes for this book from an as yet unknown author, to me. 'Crying for the Moon' is definitely a good story with a fascinating world that is just a little unique to what I've read in the past. I adore different and I was only a few pages into the story when I realized Sarah Madison would be giving me something unusual. The concept of vampires that follow the tenets of their species is called living the Life and for vampires [...]

    9. bianchianita1971/2Finalmente un urban fantasy autoconclusivo! Non fraintendetemi, amo le saghe, ma a volte non mi dispiace avere una storia "completa" in un romanzo unico.Ho apprezzato le novità che l'autrice introduce nel mondo "vampirico": i vampiri sopportano la luce del sole e sono quasi umani fintantochè non trascorrono troppo tempo dentro alla loro bara. Non tutti i vampiri ne possiedono una, ma Alex si: la bara è, per lui, croce e delizia e gli procurerà non pochi problemi.Ad avermi s [...]

    10. 4.5 stars.A paranormal romance with a fresh twist. I'm a big fan of "creatures of the dark", but lately I've been bored with the selection. Same old, same old. But this book has got my appetite back for vampires and weres.As you can guess from the warm colors on the cover, the tone of the book is light. The writing is very well done and humorous. All the characters are great, there is not a single one I don't like. I've really enjoyed watching them slowly form a kind of family of their own. And [...]

    11. The slow pace in this story had me worried at first. That is until I got comfortable with the numerous characters and learned to like them all and care what happened to them. At that point, only lack of sleep forced me to put the book down for a break.They say "write what you know" and Sarah Madison is a veterinarian, as is one of her main characters Tate. His love interest, Alex, is a vampire and I assume she has no personal experience with those.:) You must read the story almost to the end to [...]

    12. This was a real nice surprise. Paranormal that had weaknesses. An inventive twist on classic vampire lore. I had so much fun trying to figure out Tate and flip-flopping on what I thought was going on. Absolutely LOVED EPT (Evil Psycho Tom) the feral cat. I even enjoyed the underlying story of Alex's need to belong and then watch him struggle with belonging when he realizes that now he has something to loose.

    13. Fangy and Flirty Fun with Claws, Cats, and CoffinsAlexei Novik escaped the vampire Life he'd grown weary of and bought a rundown house in the mountains. All he wants is to be left alone, though he has no doubt that he hasn't heard the last of his power-hungry ex, Victor. With the help of a small pack of werewolves he considers his friends, he settles into his mountain home and starts fixing up the place, ignoring the constant pull of the coffin that regenerates him but which exacts too high a pr [...]

    14. 3.5 starsMy issue with this book is lack of information of the characters. Written in 3rd person narration, the story only comes from Alex's (the vampire) point of view, it feels like I've been pushed into Alex's life without so much of introduction. I'm struggling to get the sense of Alex, his life -- since Ms. Madison infuses a different element to the vampire myth, most notably the connection of a vampire and his coffin, and his relationship with the werewolf pack, which Alex calls his friend [...]

    15. I've never been a real fan of vampire stories, but this treatment of vampires "fixes" many of the things I don't much care for. I hate that vampires supposedly can't go out in the daytime, because who can live like that, especially in this day and age? How would a vampire explain it? I also dislike that they MUST have blood, usually human, or have some other soul-sucking requirement, even if they try to leave the life and want to be more human. (view spoiler)[ I think the author did a nice job o [...]

    16. Vi svelo una mia fantasia segreta. Quando leggevo “Twilight” io non mi perdevo dietro a Bella e al suo luccicoso, ma mi immaginavo un sacco di storie parallele sui vampiri e sul gruppo di lupi sexy che combattevano con loro. Mente malata? Non lo nego, ma dopo aver letto questo libro posso affermare che non sono l’unica ad aver avuto certe fantasie. Anzi, “Volere la luna” mi ha dato il colpo di grazia, perché ha per protagonisti un vampiro delizioso che cerca di rifarsi un’esistenza [...]

    17. I absolutely adore this book. Yes, Sarah is a friend and so I can be justifiably accused of bias, but I'm fairly sure I would adore this book if I had never met Sarah in my life.The plot is romantic and humorous, with the leads butting heads or at least trading wit throughout, and I really appreciated how the various supernatural elements were not the stars of the show as they are for so many paranormal romances. The lead, Alex, is a person first and a vampire second, and while what he is plays [...]

    18. I find this book interesting because I did like it, but didn't find myself fully engaged in it. I liked the werewolves enough, but found all the other characters uninteresting. I knew something had to be up with Tate; he was just too accepting and figured out the characters too quickly to be believed. I also found the things that Tate said to Alex, a bit over the top.The werewolves, like I said, I really liked. I would've liked to learn more about them. Nick and Peter, Tish and Duncan made the b [...]

    19. I liked this story =) Although I'm not a fan of the more gothic and dark vampire lore and those "old school vampires".I have to say I didn't expect the surprise with cat EPT and Tate (no more spoilers here LOL).The funny places and bantering here and there were really nice and cute.I also like how the attention was sort of divided between all the characters, so it's interesting to learn more and more small details about them.Can't wait for the sequel(s?) =)Still few questions were left unanswere [...]

    20. I LOVED this! I just loved the characters and how Alex's and Tate's relationship was so natural and slow-building, and how it went from a sort of reluctant friendship to more. I also liked Alex's werewolf friends, especially Nick and Peter. I like how their friendship progressed as well, and really every character was interesting and fleshed out. Another aspect I liked was that the vampires here were different and unique from what we normally read. I guess my only niggle was that I do wish that [...]

    21. I enjoyed Crying for the Moon overall, but it had way too many characters for such a short book, and they were all introduced much too quickly. I felt overwhelmed from page one, and it took me a while to match up each name with the correct character. All of the characters felt underdeveloped. This was specially true of Alex's love interest, Tate, and their romance felt rushed and uninspiring as a result. I was actually much more interesting in one of the secondary couples, the alpha Nick and his [...]

    22. Very good paranormal m/m romance about a vampire who's tired of living with other vampires, so he moves to a remote area with the assistance of his werewolf friends. Too bad the vet living up the road is so persistently friendly

    23. I like it, a different view on vampires.I knew since the beginning that "someone" (view spoiler)[Tate (hide spoiler)] was keeping a secret and what was gonna happen, but I still enjoyed reading this.

    24. The story was really interesting and well written. I liked Tate and Alex as a couple, they were good together. Plot was pulling and enjoyable and I definitely think a sequel would be great.

    25. 2.5So that was, um, well, that wast very good, in my opinion. Look the writing is mechanically fine, but the story is flat and dull. There is almost no conflict. Only one bit pops up predictably (because the reader sees the obvious foreshadowing) out of nowhere (because it's not there and then it is for no real reason) and then is defeated in no time at all (because of course it is). There are large chunks dedicated to unimportant things and, unless I was just misunderstanding what was supposed [...]

    26. Se cercate un m/m romance paranormale che sia ironico, divertente, parecchio hot, e un po’ dissacrante verso vampiri, licantropi e altre bestiacce magiche, questo libro fa per voi.Persino nei momenti di pathos, sono presenti pensieri lubrici e azioni irriverenti, per stemperarne la drammaticità, quindi ne ricaverete un piacevole passatempo.Alexei Novik, il nostro protagonista, è un vampiro a dir poco atipico: ama i bei vestiti, il buon vino e ha scelto di allontanarsi dalla “Vita” (l’i [...]
