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 28 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! March 16 2004
"Look For Me By Moonlight," is undoubtably my all-time favorite book! Seriousley, if you haven't read this book, READ IT! Being fifteen, I found that through Hahn's descriptive writing I could relate to everything Cynda said; the world she created through her 'personal,' thoughts became MY world! And the character of Vincent Morthanos is NOT TO BE MISSED!! He is the most awesome, gorgeous, hunky character in teen fiction!
PLEASE read this book! Its is so wonderful! I literally did not put it down until I had finished it, cover to cover.
You'll want to read it over and over again (like me.)

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 Fiendishly Handsome Vampire March 29 2003
What normal teenage girl would not sympathize with Cynda, a young girl who comes face to face with a fiendishly handsome vampire who seems a perfect blend of a gothic Romeo and a mysterious enchanter at the same time? To be frank, I felt exactly the same things Cynda felt, and wanted her relationship with the cruel and cunning Vincent to go on, even though he was evil; but he was so ATTRACTIVELY and SENSOUSLY evil, that one almost didn`t mind; that is, except that he wanted to kill her........... Anyway, this was a wonderful book; a must for all vampire lovers. Mary Downing Hahn really captures the temptation to succumb to the mesmerising thrill of the dark side.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good vampier story for beginers! Nov. 21 2001
I found this story very interesting and creative, the part I enjoyed the best was when everything in Cynda's world was changing, although it was a superb book, I found it quite predictable, with the way Vincent was acting towards Cynda and how she was infatuated with him. A great mysticle story for beginer vampier horror stories. Be warned once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down, trust me, I got detention because I couldn't put it down in class...hehe...english teachers are purly evil.....Well, as always, enjoy the book, very thrilling story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seductive Winter Madness Nov. 7 2001
By Katie
When I was in the eighth grade I accidentally picked up this book out of boredom during a study hall. When I returned to study hall I began reading it and I have never been the same since. It is my favorite book of all time. I've read it at least eight times and hope to read it more. Cynda reminded me so much of myself- unsure, emotional, a child of divorced parents. As the book progressed I felt myself falling in love with Vincent alongside of her. Now on every snowy night I turn off the lights and stare out into the darkness, imagining that he is there, and a shiver goes down my spine. I recommend this book to everyone- it has many important lessons to teach about trust and the naivety of young teenage girls.
