Claire de Lune by ChristineJohnson

Note: This is not a review but rather, the reasons I could not finish this book.

"Claire is having the perfect sixteenth birthday. Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she's the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all sense of normalcy: she's a werewolf.

As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire's new life threatens her blossoming romance with Matthew, whose father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice that will change her forever?"(Amazon)

The reasons I did not finish this book:
  • Claire talked like she was 12 not 16.
  • I guessed the villain by the 80th page
  • There was absolutely no action, mystery (except for the killer, who was very obvious) and the romance wasn’t enough to keep me the least bit interested
  • Claire and her mother’s relationship was basically non-existent, but yet the author seemed to try to force them together.

Overall this book was boring and very lacking in plot, creativity, and style. I had to stop at page 100.

Rating: D

Keep Reading,

  1. I totally agree with your review. I had high expectations for this novel and it fell short. The novel was very predictable but I still stuck with it, thinking that the climax would be good, but it wasn't. I'm absolutely baffled by all those who adore this novel. But then again, we all have different taste.
