Review by mountie9
Jake's Review: I really like these books because they are easy and fast to read. They are never boring and always have tons of action and no boring girly stuff (Mom's note: that means dialogue in his sexist brain). I Like the powers that Luna uses even though she uses them to do bad stuff. The description of Luna was kinda creepy and I had to leave the book face down so I couldn't see the cover when I go to bed. My favorite characters were the little wolf puppies, although I think its kinda weird that they wanted to play with Tom after he killed their mom. I didn't like how Silver was mean when he was being controlled by Luna. I think my buddy Trevor would like to read this book because it is short and exciting and scary. He really likes the scary stuff, but doesn't like to read a lot. While I was reading it I thought how tough it must have been for Tom to fight Luna when he was so sleepy.Jake's Rating: 10/10Mom's Review: A good fast paced adventure story for the reluctant reader. There is plenty of action and gory stuff that will keep the boys hooked in this installment of the series. There is a nice message of friendship and about true bravery done in non shmaltzy way that I was impressed with. I like that his friend Elenna is a strong, brave female character who helps Tom along the way. It's nice to see a strong fun female character in books that are definitely geared more to boys - maybe will get through to boys that girls can kick butt too. My only issue in this one is that the character mentioned in the first chapter is never heard from again. Why introduce her, have her go through something scary and than she's never heard from again -- I'm guessing filler or author is just cranking out these to make more cash and doesn't really care about plot holes. Ah well Jake eats these ups and anything that keeps him reading is good with me.Mom's Rating: 6/10
