Book Review: Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber

Published: December 28, 2010
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Format: Hardcover
Page Count: 292 pages
Series: Full Moon, Book One

Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves--Legend's Run is famous for them. She's used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend's Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.
Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste's hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend's Run.
Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.
Going into this book, I had no idea what to expect. What I got from this book, it was simple but enough to satisfy me.
First, the writing style. Once again, Ellen Schreiber has one of the most simplest writing style.  And that's absolutely all right! Her writing style was the actual thing that captivated me into the story. I've heard that she has a simple writing style before from somebody reviewing her other series, the Vampire Kisses series, and that's what makes us have more books in her series. The writing style was enough to hook me in and finish it within two days.

Next, the characters. I want to talk about one of the side-characters, Nash, first. Nash has a huge ego that I cannot stand. Celeste, our main character, was a wonderful character and Ellen Schreiber gave her a wonderful voice. Another great character in the story was Brandon. He's a outsider, but he always is looking out for her and making sure she's okay. That's the kind of thing I like in a character.

Finally, we have the novel itself. While Once in a Full Moon was just a simple, yet paranormal, novel with great characters and a writing style that captured me into the story.

My Rating:


  1. wheres the settings? just make a book report smart one like god!!! ugggghhhhhhh

  2. I thought reading books like this will be boring or something, but when I started reading and fall in the characters, I realized that I’m starting not just to like it but I fell in love with the book.
