This book was well written and did not feel rushed.
It was neither too long nor too short. The pacing was nice, and the ending did not disappoint. This book has hints of romance and suspense. This was a solid paranormal debut novel. It's a fast read and was never dull. I enjoyed how the story unfolded as Cora began to do her remodeling and her research. I see that the Author has a sequel to this book. I will definitely check that book out as there is definitely more to this story.

And one that will leave readers wondering what happens next. A super great cliffhanger at the end wi Lunar Rampage by Samantha Cross is one hell of a suspenseful novel that readers will come to love forever. A super great cliffhanger at the end will keep readers coming back looking for the next novel in this exciting and well written series. I can't wait to read the second novel by this talented writer whose words literally pop off the pages and keep you laughing so hard.
The characters are nothing like you expect. Take for instance the main character of this novel comes back home to her small rural town from the big bad city of Detroit to help her grandmother with renovating the old house and barn. But soon, she will learn about the mysterious events that took place without the town noticing until recently when attacks on many innocent lives occurs and with her own investigating and close encounter with death, she will find that the answers are not what she wanted to know or see at all.

Her worries for her eccentric grandmother and her new friends will make her a great new heroine that readers will admire. A woman who has her own flaws that make her an attractive and funny character that all readers can easily relate to. The conversations she has with her grandmother and friends will have readers laughing until the cry. I enjoyed reading this brilliant new book in a new and luring series.
I look forward to the second stunning masterpiece by Samantha Cross. I also highly recommend reading this book to everyone everywhere. I promise you won't be disappointed when you do. Overall, I rate Lunar Rampage a five out of five sta I enjoyed this book. The main female character was my favorite. I like to see my "real" characters in these book. I think I relate more to them. I am a big animal lover myself so I already have some things in common with the character of Cora.
I've been to my Grandma's house many times and nothing this strange has ever happened. You should check it out. This book is fun to read and enjoy. Jun 07, Shelby rated it liked it. Author Samantha Cross is, without doubt, a talented writer. However, as the book proceeds, the banter continues, where suspense should be developed. For instance, the first character who got in trouble could have been a warning to readers that further danger was afoot. There could have been citizen searches, imploring relatives, and concerned police officers thronging the streets, instead of a di Author Samantha Cross is, without doubt, a talented writer.
There could have been citizen searches, imploring relatives, and concerned police officers thronging the streets, instead of a disappearance that caused the character to fall out of the book. A good climax always needs a build-up of tension. It also needs characters that avoid being stereotyped.
In this book, there is the aging relative - slightly demented and funny because her brain is failing her - the "dirty" hippie whose mother has to hold her nose, and the antagonist who never shows herself to be more than a loose goose. There are qualities in these characters that are easy to poke fun at, but it gets tiring after awhile. Samantha Cross has a natural ability to be satirical and funny. Her writing is edgy and spirited, and her author's voice is full of independent, female grit and confidence. Her shameless sensuality moves between the lines, which gives her book a playful punch.
Her surprise at the end of the book shows she has a fun side and knows how to entertain. A final edit would tighten this book up, and keep this talented author poised for ongoing commercial success. Lovee the whole dark and mysterious cover of this book!!! She starts to notice strange things happening and decides to snoop around.
She wanders around the forest and comes across Max hunter and Joe, who is handing from a tree as a original review covertocover. She wanders around the forest and comes across Max hunter and Joe, who is handing from a tree as a sign of protest. She starts helping him by giving him some food and suddenly one day, he goes missing. She starts digging for answers and finds herself in a werewolf attack.
As for the characters, Cora is soo sweet for taking care of her grandmother. There were times where I found Cora to be a bit annoying. They were the two characters who were hilarious and lightened the mood. There is a love triangle going on with Cora, Max, and Owen. Owen is the sweet guy and I knew what was going to happen to him in the early stages of the book cause it was pretty obvious.
The starting of the book was slow but the story picks up as you go. There were some parts in the book which I found hard to believe. The second half of the book was really good and loved the way how Samantha ended this book. Looking froward to reading the sequel. I am so happy with this book and that I read it, seriously. It is, I dare say it, pretty much a perfect Werewolf book. It was just a great mixture of fun and scary. We go through the story along with our main character Cora in a first person perspective, which I'm usually not terribly fond of, and in this case, it's great. Cora is just a great down to earth character and it's really pretty fun to be in her thoughts.
And I will say fun so many times because three fourths of the book had me chuckl I am so happy with this book and that I read it, seriously. And I will say fun so many times because three fourths of the book had me chuckling on almost every page thanks to Cora's internal thoughts which aren't too excessive like they can be in some first person narratives , her wacky grandmother Wendy, and Cora's new best friend Priscilla. I have to say that I saw the curve balls coming, but I was really pleased with all of them.
Sometimes you see something coming and it drags or you feel like it's the wrong choice, but everything here felt just right. Oh, except for one curve ball I didn't see coming and was awesome, which is a total spoiler so I won't say. So, good job to the author for hiding that one from me. This book ends on a cliffhanger, which I normally hate, but I don't hate it here. It also feels like the right choice for the story and I'm happy to check back in with Cora in book 2 Lunar City.
So the rundown is really that the story is good, the writing is good, the characters are good. I enjoyed reading this book. Cora Nash is staying with her eccentric gran for the Summer in what she first thinks is a sleepy country town but soon realises that the woods hold a dark and dangerous secret. Then someone disappears and Cora is chased by a strange wolf-like creature as she returns home one night. And why does one of them seem so familiar? A good debut novel.
Weird and boring Very self-conscious writing, with odd details like telling us some steps are dark brown and that her wallet is mint green but she doesn't know why. Strong character development throughout. Especially enjoyed the near "stream of consciousness" narrative pieces from Cora, the main character.
Enabled this reader to get inside her head, and fully relate with her.

Well done Samantha Cross! Struggled to like heroine who is very juvenile, boring non stop dialogue. The H is boring, and while there are werewolves, I found the story disconnected, violent but worse it ends with cliff hanger. Aug 07, Georgianna Skinner rated it it was amazing. One of the best books I have read in a long time! I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is about a young woman, Cora Nash, who moves in with her grandmother for the summer to help fix up the place. She begins to notice strange events and hears rumors about missing people.
Eventually, Cora realizes that the strange occurrences are more than just rumors and finds herself in the midst of a werewolf attack. Cora is certainly quirky which endears her to readers. However, that quirkiness quickly becomes a little over the top. She is constantly reminding the reader of her unique personality with every thought and every piece of dialogue.
I found this a little off-putting after awhile and, at some points, I even became a little annoyed. Cora is certainly a likeable, funny character but readers should be exposed to smaller doses of her personality so that they can come to this conclusion on their own. That being said, this is told first person by Cora so the reader can expect a little more of her thoughts and personality; I just thought it was too much.
Cora is 26 years old in the book, but her dialogue made her appear as if she were Her thoughts included several instances of the word legit; like, 'I was legit scared' or 'there were legit cops open firing'. Cora also used the word ginormous quite a lot. I found these thoughts rather juvenile for a 26 year old woman, but it may have just been a part of her personality. I thought that the last half of the book was pretty fast-paced and enjoyable.
However, the first half of the book is not and it is filled with entirely too much dialogue. There is no scene setting, just dialogue and I found it difficult to get a feel for each scene because of it. There wasn't a lot of spelling errors but there were several instances where an incorrect word was used. To me, it looked as if the book had been spell-checked but not given a thorough edit. These are the concerns I had while reading this book, but they are really minor in the grand scheme of things. Samantha Cross did a wonderful job of developing her characters.
Cora and Priscilla were extremely well developed and funny. I also found the second half of this book to be a very enjoyable werewolf novel. All in all, I found Samantha Cross' first novel to be ok. There are some issues with this book but, more importantly, Samantha has shown me that she has the ability to become a really good novelist. Character development, believability, and dialogue are hard. I think Samantha has a pretty good grasp on these concepts as a first-time novelist and I think her work will only get better.
I don't read a ton of paranormal YA fiction. But when I do, I tend to really enjoy it. I definitely really enjoyed Lunar Rampage. Hints of romance and lots and lots of werewolves and action. This was just the book that I needed. I kept putting this book off because I had so many other things I needed to do. Now I wish that I hadn't. The bubbles each connect to their neighbors via tunnels which can be sealed in case of a breach. The only way out of Artemis is through its various Airlocks. He has also stated that the city walls have two 6 cm layers of aluminum sandwiching a meter of crushed lunar rock as there is an enormous amount of aluminum ore on the Moon and it protects the city from galactic radiation.
Artemis brings in a lot of its food from the Earth. The city doesn't grow crops, it mass produces food locally by growing algae. Bringing in seeds is not expensive but it takes a lot of land area to grow crops. The amount of farmland necessary to support just one person is very large.

On the other hand you just need a vat and a small room to grow as much chlorella as you want. You provide it with artificial light, and Artemis has as much energy as they want from their two nuclear reactors. Before the double homicide of Trond Landvik and Irina Vetrov , there had only ever been 5 murders in Artemis and never a double-homicide.
