Product Description


" Elise is Handeland's most appealing heroine yet... this tense, banter-filled tale provides... solid entertainment." -- "Publishers Weekly "on "Dark Moon"

Book Description

At midnight her darkest fears and deepest desires will reach their peak . . . Cassandra thought she had the perfect life until she suffered a devastating tragedy. Now she has a new identity as Priestess Cassandra, owner of a New Orleans voodoo shop, and a new purpose. A research trip for a paranormal secret society leads Cassandra to Haiti, where rumors fly of a sinister voodoo master, Jacques Mezareau, who can resurrect the dead. Fortune hunter Devon Murphy agrees to guide Cassandra there safely, but his sensual appeal promises danger of a different kind . . . As Cassandra and Devon make their way to the eerie jungle village, their attraction explodes into an intoxicating desire, and Cassandra begins to question her resolve to never let another man into her life. Her attempts to resist Devon become more and more impossible. But when she succeeds in learning Jacques's macabre ritual, her new powers may have come with a terrifying price. Now, haunted by violent dreams that grow more vivid as the midnight moon approaches, Cassandra must uncover the shocking truth about an ancient curse before it leads her to destroy herself-and everyone she loves . . .

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A direct follow on from Crescent Moon, Midnight moon is set around Voodoo and the search for a cure for the curse on Luc and his son Adam.

Brilliant Storyline, great characters and as always great creatures and bad guys.

If you have never read Lori Handeland then start at the begining it's much more fun that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good! 30 Dec 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a good story, it had vodoo, werewolves, romance and a hero who is a bit on the shady side. The heroine is a woman with a past, which puts a different side to this book. This was fun to read and am looking forward to the authors next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect rainy day read 17 July 2009
This is the kind of book that once you get into it you cannot put it down. Cassabdra and Devon really steam up this fantastic episode of Handeland's 'Moon' series.

I wouls definitely recommend reading the ones before this book purely to lead you into it as they all slot very comfortable into one another.

Overall, a hot and thoroughly enjoyable read

5.0 out of 5 stars Death is not always the end. 4 Aug 2006
By Barbara A. Mazzuca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Cassandra has a new life now. And she is assighed to find the ways to raise zombie's. It will be the only way to break to curse set on her best friends husband and his son. And the only way will be to raise the voodo goddess that first put this curse on the husbands father. But she has "other" reasons to want to find out how to gain this talent. She wants to bring back her dead daughter. But in her travels she is beginning to understand that even if she can do this will her daughter really be that little girl again,and is she sure that this is something that she should be doing. To confuse her more she meets the man who is going to take her to find the sorrcoress that has this ablity. He is not your usual guy. long sun bleach hear with fleathers and beans mixed in and a body that is so unlike anything she is use to. and she's also beginning to get 'those'feeling back. Feeling she thought she would never have again. So they go off to find her answers and get back to brake the curse and then she can go back to Calilforia to bring back her daughter. Now she just has to find this place and not get killed or lost or possibly even trapped there forever. Did I mention that cassandra is also a voodoo prestiess. With some pretty interesting powers herself. Its a roller coaster ride of emotions and pain. No one said life was easy.

you get so involved with the characters that at times you do feel the pain of lossing a child and also how hard it is to not feel that if has been a better mother she could and should have been able to prevent the loss of her little girl

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars 1 Aug 2006
By AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Cassandra's life was destroyed in more ways than one when her daughter was murdered. Now, with her true identity lost in the witness protection program, she searches for a way to bring her child back to life and find meaning in her own again. Her search has lead her to learn voodoo, and that gift has made her a part of the Juger Sachers, an elite force that fights monsters. To set one of their own free, the Juger Sachers need Cassandra to raise the dead so that the remants of a long dead priestess can remove a curse. This knowledge would also allow Cassandra to achieve her goal, she therefore goes to Haiti. Once there, she is guided by Devon Murphy, an engimatic man who does not believe in magic, into the jungle to learn from an evil sorceror. Little does she know the price that knowledge will exact, or how true the statement that there are no accidents is.

***** As this series continues to unfold, each segment grows more fascinating. Cassandra's story is one you want to hurry to finish, but to savor as well. Moreover, the Juger Sachers are endlessly intriguing, especially their boss, Edward. Though if he were a truly living person he might shoot me for saying this, Edward is a character who is very easy to love, bringing a dry wit to the story that will charm you. *****

5.0 out of 5 stars She just gets better! 5 Aug 2006
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I made the mistake of starting this when I was obligated to complete some other things. It was do something responsible and then rush back to the book all day. I took it everywhere with me and read as much as possible while waiting for the dry cleaning, the phone to be answered, friends to meet me at the restaurant etc.

Cassandra was so desperate to get her dead daughter back that she would (and did) do anything. Devon had lived such a hard life and still had a deep core of goodness. These characters were well developed and very likable. Cassandra's love of a snake was a lot hard for me to understand but.... different strokes.

This was a great adventure, love story and giggle out loud to boot! Can't wait for the next story from her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool but Disappointing 2 July 2007
By Leah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'd read Handeland's other Moon books and enjoyed them, but I was let down with 'Midnight Moon.' I really liked Cassandra in the previous novel, 'Crescent Moon,' but Ms. Handeland made Cassandra into a thing where, if you toss a bit of sex her way, she forgets all else.

That's all there really is to her story: she meets 'mysterious bad boy thief' Devon Murphy in Haiti while looking for a way to raise her daughter from the dead, they talk, get shot at, meet a voodoo master, have sex, learn new things about shapeshifters, have sex, more sex, and Cassandra has to go back home to New Orleans but he meets up with her there for some more sex. That's it. The only saving grace in the story is the rich details of Haiti and voodoo, but it comes in small pinches. I'm all for sex but it could have been so much more magical if 'sex' didn't equal 'love' in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cassandra's story- and it rocks! 6 Aug 2006
By Deborah Wiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Priestess Cassandra is still haunted by the death of her young daughter in her life prior to the Witness Protection Program. Now as a voodoo priestess, her sole goal in life is to learn to raise her daughter from the dead. She is also a member of the Jager-Suchers and helps hunt for monsters, such as werewolves. Her work as a Jager-Sucher coincides with her personal goal when she is sent to Haiti to discover how to raise a zombie.

Cassandra's Haitian journey takes her far into areas of voodoo she had never planned to explore. With her guide, Devon Murphy, she sets out to find the mysterious bukor, Mezareau. Cassandra never expected to find love again- but is Murphy the kind of man who will stick around? Together, they will have to face some unusual circumstances that will make both of them re-examine everything in which they believe.

MIDNIGHT MOON is the fifth book in the Nightcreature series. Lori Handeland picks up the story of Priestess Cassandra, who appeared previously in CRESCENT MOON. Each book in this series is a stand alone novel despite the reoccurrence of several characters. Ms. Handeland does an excellent job at orienting new readers to the world of the Jager-Suchers without boring long-time readers of the series.

Priestess Cassandra is a fascinating character and one this reviewer is excited to see with her own book. Her story is hinted at in CRESCENT MOON but is fully developed in MIDNIGHT MOON. Readers will sympathize with Cassandra's desire to hold onto her daughter at all costs while hoping anxiously that she will be willing to take the first steps into a new future. Cassandra's growth both as a woman and as a voodoo priestess is an essential element of MIDNIGHT MOON.

MIDNIGHT MOON is an outstanding paranormal novel that delves deeply into the world of voodoo. Lori Handeland has created the perfect backdrop for Cassandra's story by setting the tale in Haiti. The romantic elements of MIDNIGHT MOON are not quite as strong as in previous books but the paranormal elements make this one of the best books in the series. Ms. Handeland has firmly established herself as a leading writer of paranormal books with MIDNIGHT MOON!
