Published by Simon Pulse on May 18th 2010
Torn between two destinies…
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….
When I picked up Clare de Lune, strangely enough, I was in a werewolf mood (that doesn't happen very often). And for the most part, the novel satisified me. The plot was very suspenseful, more so than what I was expecting. Claire was a great character, and you could not help but sympathize with everything that she was going through. And I loved Christine Johnson's take on werewolves. Completely unique.
Although, Clare de Lune cured me of my werewolf novel longings, it was not everything that I was hoping it would be. However, Johnson gets mega kudos from me for creating a completely new twist on werewolf lore and making me second guess EVERYTHING. I seriously had to smack my hand a few times to stop myself from skipping to the end of the novel just to find out who the bad guy.. err.. wolf was. If you are want a hardcore paranormal werewolf novel, then Clare de Lune may not be for you. But you if are looking for a lighter paranormal novel with great characters and plenty of suspense, then pick up Clare de Lune… you will not be disappointed.
