Review: Cascades of Moonlight by Amy K. McClung

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Fairies
The opening of Cascades of Moonlight by Amy K. McClung immediately piqued my interest. This is not simply because I love shifter books, but I really liked the concept for Cascades of Moonlight. The idea that a girl has to cope with theses changes by herself intrigued me.

Initially, I warmed to Parker's character. I liked her resolve and her focus. With the first introduction of Quinn, I enjoyed their relationship interactions and the range of plot twists that were hard to second guess. This really enabled me to continue enjoying reading this book. However, my attitude toward Parker did change somewhat as the book progressed. In the end, her reactions irritated me a little; they certainly frustrated me. Although, it could be easily interpreted that Amy K. McClung has therefore created a very realistic teenager!

At times the storyline progressed at an unrealistic pace. Events or responses would happen that were a little too coincidental. Yet there were other times in the book where chapters and characters flowed and developed beautifully. I was a little frustrated by the dialogue; the flow between the characters at time was disjointed and didn't flow very naturally. Although, it's no big secret that generally character dialogue in books can disgruntle me a little.

I was really pleased with the way that McClung crafted the ending of this book. It reiterated her skill with plot twists and sets the book up nicely for the next in the series.

Cascades of Moonlight is a creative YA paranormal read with many unique qualities. Bex 'n' Books rated 3.5 fairies (4 stars for Amazon etc).
