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.

I love <b>Mary Downing Hahn</b>. She stretches to the apex of originality and I count on her to be paranormal. If her literature were adults, my search for the ultimate fiction would be complete. When I encountered “<b>Look For Me By Moonlight</b>” second-hand, I seized upon it. I winced after it was clear what it was; one genre I can’t stand: vampires! I learned something I hadn’t known. I don’t merely avoid the vampire category because I think they’re silly and am disinterested. I observed I physically cannot stomach the subject.

The back story of this novel is about a mixed family. A teenager spends a few months with her Dad, his young wife, and their toddler while her Mom and new husband are in Italy. Her Dad and his wife run an ocean-side motel in Maine. She can’t stand her young brother and neither could I. The first hindrance to the reading experience derives unequivocally from him and the second, are textbook scenarios in which <i>Cynda</i> is misjudged and overlooked. I began to feel sympathetic to her anxiety, unlikely or not, that her Dad hasn’t forgotten their closeness and that their time as parent and daughter hasn’t ended with the arrival of the boy. However there were too many scenes about this, when what I seek is a mystical mystery.

I love her immediate friendship to the likeable boy her age and was chagrined a motel guest interrupted their liaison. I know nil about vampires but it appears once a person is bitten, they are under a control that is tough to break. I must have strong imagination. I felt ill through chapters of children waiting to be bitten. It was a relief her trust of the boy was unshakeable. Ghostliness brought a glimpse of the ambiance I prefer.

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.

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.

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!
