Series: Full Moon, #2

Beware of a bite under a full moon…
it will complicate your love life.

Celeste has more to worry about than a secret romance with a hot guy from the wrong side of town. That guy, Brandon, is a werewolf. With gossip and hostility swirling at school, it’s time to find a cure for his nocturnal condition, and perhaps the one person who can help is his scientist father. But what if a “cure” makes things worse and Brandon becomes a werewolf full time? And with rumors circulating that there are werewolves in Legend’s Run, is it possible that there is another among their classmates?

To keep Brandon’s secret safe, Celeste must hide her relationship with him from her best friends, but with the Moonlight Ball approaching, she must make a choice. Her dream is to go with her one true love—Brandon. But once the sun goes down, the clouds separate, and the full moon appears, could she really walk into the dance on the arm of a werewolf?

In this installment of the sumptuously romantic Full Moon series, Celeste faces her fears and her friends and finds out whether she’s strong enough to stand up for herself and her one true love.

The Full Moon series is a lighthearted and fun series that makes for a great paranormal romance, and this installment lives up to the hype. 

Again, Magic of the Moonlight is simply fun that is clean and lighthearted. I recommend this series to all readers, especially tweens and teens. They're short and sweet, and I know exactly what to expect from Ellen Schreiber and her works: lots of brilliant paranormal romance and tons of fun. 

Celeste finally grew a backbone in this novel. I have to admit that in the first book, Once in a Full Moon, she seemed a bit silly and naive, but gosh, she really gets fierce in this second novel! I loved how Schreiber really developed her character: she was smart, quick-witted, and really strong. And of course, the other characters were great. I really loved Celeste and Brandon's relationship, because it grew to tremendous heights and totally evolved into something bigger than what was offered in the first book.

I love the take on werewolves that Ellen Schreiber weaves together. The freaky fortune-teller makes her return, and she has an important message. Something is going to trouble Celeste's life, and once you find out what that twist is, it's spectacular! I could see hints, and I did guess what would happen at the end, but just the way that Schreiber made that scene come to life did the book for me.

Overall, Magic of the Moonlight is a great installment in this fun series. Looking for some love in your life underneath the moon? Check out these novels!
