From the author of the acclaimed Archangel Academy vampire trilogy comes a stunning new series about a girl determined to defy her fate—and reclaim her future…

Something strange is going on with Dominy Robineau. All her friends in Weeping Water, Nebraska, have noticed—and it’s way beyond teenage blues. As weeks pass, Dom grows consumed by anger, aggression, and violence, and she seems powerless to stop it. Then she turns sixteen, and things get really dangerous.

When her best friend is murdered, Dominy’s father is compelled to reveal the truth behind the darkness that threatens to both overtake and empower her. Her boyfriend, Caleb, swears they’ll find a way to change her destiny. But others are hiding secrets too, and gifts that are far more terrifying than hers. And even as she struggles to control her new abilities, Dom must contend with an enemy who wants her to use the beast within to destroy all those she loves, before she destroys herself…

Moonglow is about a young girl named Dominy. On the night of Dominy's birthday, she remembers being with her friend. She doesn't remember anything else at all-until the next morning when she finds her best friend dead. Dominy has no clue as to what killed her friend and she doesn't know what to do. As the days go on, she finds that she is changing. Is the change good or bad?

I really enjoyed this book. It was pretty different compared to other werewolf novels that I've read. I really enjoyed the characters too. This book was full of mystery, which I really liked. I never exactly knew what was going to happen because nothing was really clear until the ending. I really felt empathy for Dominy. She didn't really know what was going on and so many people around her were keeping secrets.
The only character that actually bothered me would probably have to be Dominy's dad. I mean, he knew so much more than he let on for a while in the beginning! My favorite character would probably have to be Caleb. Caleb stayed with Dominy even after he knew what was going on with her. This book definitely left at a cliff hanger and I'm really excited to see what comes next! I'd definitely suggest reading this book if you like paranormal or werewolf books.
