    One thought on “A Creature of Moonlight”

    1. My imagination held hostageThe woods are a magical place, one that the people in A Creature of Moonlight have been taught to fear their whole lives. These woods come and go, moving forward and backward gobbling up or giving back land on a whim. It even has a taste for young girls on the cusp of womanhood! Treacherous sounding isn’t it? These young girls frequently disappear into the woods never to be seen again. Except once one particular girl does return. Sounds like a place full of magic, da [...]

    2. A Creature of Moonlight is 2% dialogue, 3% interesting stories about the woods, and 95% boredom which is just Marni talking to herself using beautiful prose and similes. Honestly, let's put aside the fact that many adults read young adult novels and stick to the fact that this book is for young people. Slim, very slim are the chances that teenagers want to read a boring story that's lyrically enchanting than anything else. Teenagers want action! Betrayal! and unfortunately sometimes, romance! We [...]

    3. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Hauntingly beautiful, raw, and powerful, this story stays with you even after you turn the last page. I can’t stress enough how gorgeous and eerie this novel is.Opening Sentence: All summer long the villagers have been talking of the woods.The Review:This connected to me on an emotional level, and I don’t remember the last time I left a story with such pleasant feelings. Delirium? Twilight? Harry Potter? Wow, just wow. A Creature of Moon [...]

    4. If you are a fan of pulse pounding action on every page, this is probably not the book for you. But if you like strong characters, beautiful prose, and a heart-warming story, I would suggest this book for you. The language is gorgeous and poignant. Marni's voice is so well developed and so achingly beautiful that you want to continue on just to hear her words. I think we need books like this. Books that cause you to stop and enjoy a well turned phrase. Books that evoke a different time, when lif [...]

    5. A CREATURE OF MOONLIGHT is beautifully written from a wordsmithing point of view. However, I couldn't get into the story. It was the weirdest thing. I loved reading about Marni's experiences in the woods and with her grandfather. Couldn't care less about the whole go-to-the-castle thing. Loved her as a strong woman; meh about the struggles to 'find herself'.I can totally understand the 5-Star reviews. And I would recommend this book based on the fact that Rebecca Hahn's writing is quite charming [...]

    6. I received this ARC through NetGalley from the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.This novel is like a myth, mysterious and dreamy, elusive and multilayered, open to different interpretations. I don’t think simple like or dislike could cover it. Everyone will see in its pages something that belongs exclusively to them, something close to their heart. What did I see? What is close to my heart? I saw a sixteen-year-old girl longing for freedom – the freedom to choose and the freedom to belon [...]

    7. Before reading:Comparing yourself to Seraphina, aren't you, book?Those are quite very large breeches you're trying to fill.DNF @ 32%.Reading is one of those activities that I can’t get enough of (it’s right there with eating good food and—ahem—other things, you know). Despite having a family to take care of, jobs to do and well, having to live the “real” life, I’m able to read a decent amount of books in a year. I do it by reading every spare moment I can get. I read on the train, [...]

    8. I finished this book last night, and this morning woke up convinced that I had another book by the author on my Kindle: I'd dreamed that I got a targeted ad asking me to buy it; and I was delighted to find out she had another book.Of, course, she doesn't, yet. 'A Creature of Moonlight' is Hahn's debut. But that dream does show how much I liked it.The story is pure fairy tale: a young woman, half-princess, half-fey. She is rumored to be the dragon's daughter, and her mother was slain for endanger [...]

    9. Arc provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children Books through NetgalleyThis is a review that I simultaneously want to write and one that, at the same time, fills me with a healthy dose of dread.The reason is very clear: I loved this book to bits, and if I could, I would make sure everyone with whom I spoke would get a chance to read it.Truth is, it's because of books like these that I will never stop reading. It pulled at my heart strings with its beautiful language, it captured me with its v [...]

    10. A Creature of Moonlight is a slow moving, beautifully written, character driven story that drew me in from the very beginning. It reminded me in some ways of Janet Lee Carey's books, namely Dragonswood and Dragon's Keep, and also Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. It was nice that it was a stand-alone too. I will be looking for more books from this author.

    11. Originally posted at shaelit/2014/05/review Chances are, if you’re anything like me, you’re interested in this story for the dragon on the cover. Dragons are awesome. I can’t think of anything off the top of my head that would beat a dragon. But dragons are also hard. There have been some awful dragon books in the past, as well as some dragon books that are so great that they make the rest of the genre pale in comparison. (I’m looking at you, Seraphina.) So maybe, despite being inexorabl [...]

    12. A truly remarkable story containing a hauntingly surreal ‘dreamlike’ quality to it Rebecca Hahn’s exquisitely beautiful, passionate novel is a rarity among its genre as it makes you believe in all infinite possibilities. This truly special book captures dreams and the essence of our subconscious, whether that is a memory or a path of prospect or even a poignant sound calling out to you. Capturing the coldness of winter, the wide sky and the whispering of the Trees the evocative prose inter [...]

    13. I’m still reeling from this three part fairytale that tells of the journey a young girl must make to find not only herself, but the role she is destined to play in her magical world as she learns who she really is and what it means. A Creature of Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn is magical, veiled in a feeling of leaving reality behind and entering a world filled with creatures of all sorts, evil, loving, trustworthy and filled with deceit. It is for Marni to discern her path, who to trust and who to [...]

    14. [ARC courtesy of NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.]This novel was a delightful read, with enchanting prose that kept me enthralled—not too little description, not too much, and lyrical enough without diving head-first into purple prose. It was permeated with an eerie atmosphere, and there was something definitely haunting to that world encroached upon by nature and strange creatures from the woods. The latter were appealing, intriguing, making me thinkg that I, too, would want to se [...]

    15. The writing immediately grabbed me. I loved the voice, the flow of the words (other than the use of double negatives--I understood their purpose in this story, but it still jolted me every time). The premise is something that is both old and new--the idea of someone being half-human, half-dragon--with lots of traditional fantasy elements, but all presented in a rather unique way. I really don't want to give much away about the story line, because honestly, that's quite simple and straightforward [...]

    16. Not much of a description, I know but I LOVED this book! I had a blast reading it and fell in love with Rebecca Hahn writing. Her writing style alone was magical and mystical for this story I just loved ever word she wrote. I felt the woods around me I could hear them singing, it was THAT good. I'm telling you, the writing alone I just loved.The tale is not one that think it is about which is great! Because when it comes to dragons we've gotten plenty of stories of people changing INTO them but [...]

    17. I loved the writing. It's very beautiful and lyrical and paints a vivid world. I particularly loved the descriptions of the various mythical creatures - beautiful, strong and dangerous. Unfortunately, the story itself is a bit meandering(view spoiler)[there's never a strong sense of urgency, probably because Marni gets lost in everything herself. I felt like I just kept waiting for something truly pivotal to happen - but it never materializes. Instead, Marni slips away and the story changes.I co [...]

    18. This book was weird. It started out really great and the concept I thought was kind of cool, but than it got weird when talking about how the main characters father is the dragon on the mount. Ok so that idea is not totally weird in itself all the way although it is still kind of weird but what really got me was it started talking about her mother and how she was a lonely princess that always wanted adventure and fled to the mountain to see the dragon and the dragon fell in love with her and whi [...]

    19. Loved the writing and heroine and creepy woods! Things get a bit slow when there is a lot of court politics, but all the time in the woods and with the dragon was a delight!

    20. 3.5 starsLong ago, a princess of her realm, was lured into the shadowy woods, but unlike most of the girls who venture there, she came back, but she wasn't alone. She was pregnant and the child she carried was presumed to be the dragons daughter. Her brother the prince, could not condone her existence and killed her for her unspeakable crime, but their father, begged his son to spare the child. And so he did. Ever since the day her gramps whisked her away, Marni lives by the borders of the woods [...]

    21. This book was just NOT my thing. I had been drawn to the cover, because hello!a. It's shinyb. IT HAS A DRAGON SHADOW WITH A MOON THE BACKGROUNDSo yeah, started out pretty excited but the book was, in my opinion, really boring. I didn't find the character interesting, especially because she was the 'suffer in silence' type. When characters are angry, I want to see some action, some revenge. I'm a sucker for scandal. I also wasn't a fan of the writing style. It was 1st person, which was nice, but [...]

    22. The stars you see at the top of this review are because this book started off so, so beautifully. The reason there are only two stars is because the book didn't just go south after about the first half - it dropped off the globe altogether. UGH.Ugh. Really!So. Three parts of a book: the writing, the characters and the plot.The writing here is lyrical, practically poetry. It is gorgeous stuff, and beyond. This is a fairytale, and it captures the essence of what we love about fairytales brilliantl [...]

    23. Marni lives with her Gramps on the edge of the woods where they grow flowers that the wealthy lords and ladies from the castle come to buy. The woods is not just a normal woods, it is filled with small creatures and a lady who has sung and knitted with Marni since she was a child. Marni doesn’t speak with the creatures of the forest anymore, but she had spent many hours as a child with them. Marni is not just any peasant girl, she is the daughter of the sister of the king, and her Gramps was o [...]

    24. DNF at the page 116.I can't read any more of this. It's boring. It's so, so boring that I've almost fallen asleep every time I'd get back to reading this. You'd expect that, from the book that involves the girl that is half dragon, there will be some action and fast-paced storyline and whatnot, but no! Instead, we get details, some attempt at a plot twist, and more details! In this 36% I've read, nothing remarkably happens. it's just lost of thoughts and lots of details and details.We have a gir [...]

    25. I don't just rate this five stars because I have the privilege of counting the author among my friends. This is a fabulous story, fresh and subtly surprising, beautifully told. I felt echoes of Robin McKinley, especially Deerskin and Rose Daughter. The diction reminded me somewhat of Charles DeLint.What pushed this story over to the fifth star for me was the unapologetic voice of Marni, the protagonist, telling her own tale. She feels emotions deeply, but there's also a calm acceptance of the wo [...]

    26. Rebecca Hahn caught my interest one paragraph into her debut YA novel A Creature of Moonlight:All summer long the villagers have been talking of the woods. Even those living many hills away can see it: their crops are disappearing; their land is shrinking by the day. We hear story after story. One evening a well will be standing untouched, a good twenty feet from the shade, and when the farmer’s daughter goes to draw water in the morning, there will be nothing left but a pile of stones and a n [...]

    27. I wasn't really sure how to rate this book. I will agree with many others and the author is a wonderful writer. However, the story was a little weird and I felt the ending wasn't very satisfying. The book was split into 3 parts. Part I - Is Marni and her life with her Grandpa. She doesn't want to get married or anything like that. She just wants it to be the two of them forever. Part II - She meets her father who is the dragon. Apparently he can change into either a human or Dragon. Part III - S [...]

    28. This is so beautifully atmospheric. I'd go so far as saying I see shades of Erin Bow, with that part eerie, part sad vibe. The writing is quiet and the voice subtle, and the story is slow and meandering. It's not directionless, though, at least not until the very end, which hits a reset button. Quite frankly, the end is so pat that it's a little insulting, and it's also frustrating in terms of character growth.But this is a wonderful, quiet book until then. My favorite part of reading it was not [...]

    29. There is tons of bad YA fantasy out there, usually complete with 3 pages of shout outs to everyone the author knows, including other writers who write fatuous blurbs on the jacket. This isn't that sort of book.No shout-outs, just a simple dedication and jacket blurbs from Kristin Cashore and Franny Billingsley, two wonderful,solid, quality YA writers. And this is solid, quality YA fantasy. Utterly believable, beautifully written and a perfect, satisfying ending. I'll be looking forward to Hahn's [...]
