Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A lonely teenage girl, an isolated inn by the ocean, a ghost, a mysterious stranger-sure, these are gothic cliches, but in Hahn's (Stepping on the Cracks) able hands, they add up to a stylish supernatural thriller. Cynda, the 16-year-old narrator, has trepidations about moving in with her estranged father and his much younger wife at the Maine inn that they run even before she hears that the inn is haunted, ostensibly by the ghost of a young woman murdered some 60 years ago. Soon after her arrival, handsome, sophisticated Victor Morthanos checks in for a month-long stay. Cynda's five-year-old half-brother, Todd, hates him on sight, but Cynda just as quickly falls in love: Victor alone understands her jealousy and resentment of Todd and her stepmother, and he alone truly appreciates her. By the time Cynda figures out that Victor is a vampire and the murderer of the ghostly girl, she is well on the way to becoming a ghost herself, as is Todd. How Cynda overcomes her thralldom makes for a deliciously spine-tingling story-all the more gripping for its sturdy psychological underpinnings. Ages 11-up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whoo. Crazy times March 27 2004
By Ilinana
When I first read this book, I was only about....ten, maybe nine. It totally freaked me out. *nod* But it was awesome! I won't bother to write a description of the book's plot, but woah. Freaky. There were spots where it started to drag a little, and the ending seemed a bit...forced, to say the least, but it's better than most of the junky, cliche stories out there. I would recommend it to vampire fans :) Some compare this book to the Silver Kiss. I must admit, I never cared for Klause after reading "Blood and Chocolate" (which seemed more focused on sex and groping than anything else) and "Silver Kiss" did not impress me enough to get rid of the bad taste "BaC" left in my mouth. "Look for Me by Moonlight" is, in my opinion, way better, and you're more likely to want to read it multiple times, unlike BaC or SK. I would probably rate this book a 3.5 or low 4, seeing as how there are some catches/failings in the plot, but overall it is an excellent read. so there! :P And woah. Vincent is, I must agree, sensually evil. I would probably find myself falling for him in the same way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not For Me Oct. 7 2003
Okay. I'm a Tamora Pierce fan, especially of her fantastically-plotted quartets.I have a slight interest in vampires in general; that's why I enjoyed Amelia Atwater-Rhodes since her first publishing.This book, however, freaked me out entirely.The plot, all the seduction directed at a 'normal' girl by a dead-gorgeous vampire was disturbing.The author's writing style was...interesting because during the suspenseful scenes, the words would pulse.If I liked dark, moody horror novels, this would be rated tops, but I don't.Tamora Pierce's novels have girls-kick-butt action and the plot never flaggs.Also, the author is dependable because she realizes that neglected readers make bad fans.Her material is original; it's fantasy with a setting girls can relate to and in the quartets, Tortall is like a version of the Middle Ages.My friend got me hooked in sixth grade, the same grade when I picked-up "Look For Me By Moonlight".I'm not a chicken; this book just didn't suit me.Check-out "Sabriel" by Garth Nix for a strong female main character who kicks ass.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Dangerous Attraction! Jan. 27 2000
By A Customer
I definatly suggest this book to those of us who love a little romance, plot twists, horror, and a little out of the ordinary. When I started reading Look For Me By Moonlight, I had no idea what the plot was about and I guess it was better that way. At first, it sound like another "Girl moves to new house, girl feels unwanted, girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love," kind of story but it wasn't at all. I agree that it is far fetched but I like books like that.
The story starts out well but ends up in a big mess. The ending is TOO EASY and I didn't see how Vincent could have been defeated by his own fears in such a quick and easy manor. I was waiting for him to return for revenge but there was none. I thought Mary Downing Hahn could have ended this terrorizing romance in a better way but she let me down this time.
I absolutly love the variety of realistic characters (dispite the Vampire of couse). I could relate to Cynda, a 16 year old girl whose parents are divorce and is unsure of herself, her image, love issues, and in this case, older men. I could also connect the character Todd to any tipical five year old who wants a lot of attention, playing games, playing in the snow, frequent changes of favor, and having bad dreams.
All and all, I thought this story was enjoying to read not only for me but also for supernatural lovers. Completely arresting!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most interesting novels to read. Oct. 23 1998
By A Customer
I would recommend this book because it is very suspenseful and keeps your attention. There is a lot of detail in the story which makes it more interesting to read. The story also has unsuspecting events, which makes it exciting. This book would be suited more for girls because it it's about romance and the consequences that come along with it. The book is about a sixteen year old girl, Cynda, who goes to live with her father after her parents get divorced. He owns a hotel that everybody seems to think is haunted, because a young girl was killed there. Her dad has since been remarried and has one child and one on the way. Between his new wife and kids, Cynda feels left out. Just when she is starting to get the feel of things, a new guest named Vincent comes to stay at the hotel. Cynda falls in love with him, even though he is twice her age. This causes some major conflicts between her and her stepmother. She then finds out that the murders that took place at the hotel were committed by Vincent. Cynda wonders how he could be related to these crimes if they were committed over 50 years ago. Soon everyone will find out who Vincent really is and Cynda feels she has to put a stop to it, before she gets into the middle of it. One of the best aspects of the book was how the author puts so much detail into the story. It is almost like you are there. The exciting details then lead up to the surprising conclusion. The book always keeps you interested and you never want to put it down. One of the bad aspects of the book is that some parts seem too unreal to believe. I think this is one of the most interesting novels to read by Mary Downing Hahn.
