Book Description

Rylie's been bitten.
She's changing.
And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf...forever.

Rylie Gresham has been attacked by a wild animal at summer camp. She survived with something far worse than normal injuries. Animals fear her, she's craving raw flesh, and her anger is uncontrollable.

Mysterious Seth Wilder knows a lot about werewolves. He thinks he might be able to fix Rylie. His secrets might be far more dangerous than the change Rylie's facing, but she has no choice but to trust him. After all, if she doesn't figure out a way to stop the transformation, then at the end of summer, she'll be a monster.

    More About the Author

    Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It's a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.

    If you would like to know the instant I have a new book available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! We have a WICKED cool secret handshake, but you'll have to sign up to learn it. ;) Check it out -- http://smarturl.it/armyofevil

    A few fun facts about me:
    - The #1 song on the day I was born was "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley, which means my life is a Rickroll.
    - I have three black cats and one black dog, but it's not an obsession, I swear.
    - I am a full time writer these days, which means I will never wear a pair of heels to the office again. Viva la sweatpants!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Six Moon Summer 31 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Yet another book about werewolves (but no vampires to be seen of yet!) but this one is very good. It holds your interest from the beginning and takes you on a journey with the main character as she progresses through each New and Full Moon to become closer to being a fully-fledged werewolf. The "history" into the werewolf that is given is very well written and done in such a way that you don't feel like it is just something that needed to be done! There is a slight spark of romance in this but nothing that goes beyond the boundaries of Young Adult!

    The pace of this book is continuous, not jerky, and the characters are well-written. Very few grammatical or editorial errors so it was a pleasure to read and I already have the second one to start.

    Recommended.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not Great 15 Sept. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book was basically a re-hash of the entire werewolf genre; stereotypically miserable girl goes to summer camp and is stuck with a cabin-full of horrible girls. She goes for a walk in the woods in the middle of the night, gets bitten by a werewolf, suddenly finds a boy with knowledge about werewolf folk-law, tries to stop becoming a werewolf, decides to become a werewolf at the very last moment, and discovers her knowledgeable friend is actually a werewolf-hunter.
    There are much better werewolf books available, with much less stereotypical plots and characters. I got this as a freebie, so can't complain too much, but I'm glad I didn't pay for this book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Werewolf Tale 8 Feb. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    You know you get those books where the world is just so realistic that you fall into it and the characters are so fleshed out that they are real? Yes, Six Moon Summer is one of those books. I sat and read this book on an spring day with the sun shining down upon me and the birds chirping outside and I felt that I could be sitting at the summer camp with Rylie. I don't get that overwhelming feeling very often but I love it and how realistic and relaxing it is. Six Moon Summer is one brilliantly written book, it easily conveys the story without being overly complicated or descriptive and it's straight to the point. It was a lovely easy read that I cannot wait to explore further.

    Rylie's parents are going through a nasty divorce and to keep Rylie away from it all they send her off to Summer camp. Rylie does not want to be here and what's worse is the other girls don't want her there either and they will make her life a living hell until camp is over. That's the beginning of Rylie's problems, she then gets bitten by a werewolf and has four moons to find a cure before she ultimately turns into a mindless monster. With the help of the mysterious Seth, they find as much information as possible that they can gather at the camp while trying to make sure the werewolf doesn't strike again. Rylie begins to change and this makes the other girls back off but she becomes more violent and blood thirsty. She knows time is running out and it's only getting harder.

    Rylie's used to being in a city so when she's sent to summer camp, she isn't pleased in the slightest. The thing is she's written so well and doesn't come across as a stroppy teenager. I just want to write here that she is amazing!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Six Moon Summer 27 Nov. 2012
    By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition
    A sullen, lonely girl is sent to summer camp in America while her parents divorce. But something strange lurks on the rugged mountainside, and when Rylie gets bitten one night she finds herself changing into a wolf... This is first in a young adult series called Seasons of the Moon. The reason this is a SIX MOON SUMMER over three months, is because Rylie finds herself changing shape at every new moon and full moon.

    Though a vegetarian, Rylie suddenly craves juicy meat instead of tofu, and the girls who have been unpleasant begin to be afraid of her newly violent temper. The camp horses are too spooked by her scent to let her ride and all her senses are much keener. Terrified, Rylie finds an ally in Seth, a lanky young man from the boy's camp across the lake. Seth shows her a book of legends in the counsellors' cabin which describe the gradual process of change. Rylie hopes that the curse is not irrevocable, but although Seth seems to know far too much, and she finds him attractive, he can't stop it happening, and the true werewolf, identity unknown, is still out there. Dragged back to the city briefly for a funeral, Rylie feels that she no longer fits in, and the forest has become her home instead. She heads back to camp before she changes again, knowing that this puts her, and the other girls, in even greater peril.

    The descriptions of the forest and keen senses were excellent and SM Reine has made a very realistic story, first out of Rylie's loneliness and second out of her take on werewolves. Sullen teens who make life more miserable by not trying to enjoy themselves aren't new, and the werewolf legend is a way that simpler people tried to explain what happened to people bitten by rabid animals. If you're bitten in the woods, seek medical aid! I'll look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Those looking for a similar series could try October Moon and Wolf Moon by Michael Scott, about a girl in Ireland.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Werewolf Story 23 Jun. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Story:

    Being stuck between divorcing parents isn't fun, but Rylie sure would prefer that instead of the summer camp she's sent to. Little did she know, that the camp would change her life forever.

    Rylie is being picked on by her cabin mates, and one night she escapes to the woods, wishing to get away. She blacks out, not remembering much, but wakes up in her own cot, back in the camp. Soon she realises something has changed, and she doesn't know what to make out of it.

    When Seth gets in contact with Rylie, she learns she was attacked by a werewolf. With the help of her new friend Rylie tries to cope with the changes she's gradually going through, and desperately tries to figure out a cure. In three months she would be real werewolf.

    Writing:

    Six Moon Summer has a pleasant flow in it, and the language is well fit for the YA audience.

    The book is first tuned with some insight what will happen at the end of the book, and it sets a dooming atmosphere for the tale. I don't know why, but I had kind of a twin-peaksy feeling while reading because of it (and it's a good thing).

    There are some inconsistencies in the book, some regarding Rylie and her dad, some about the cure. Hard to get into details without being too specific. Nothing major though, so they wont affect your reading experience too much.

    I give Reine extra credit about how vivid the scenes with Rylie in her wolf form were. I loved those parts. I suspect Reine has first-hand experience about being a werewolf.

    Main character:

    I did not like Rylie, but she is very real. I think teenagers can relate to her more, but at times I just wanted to smack her out of it. Your parents are divorcing, big deal, get over it already!

    Really good book but there should have been more to the story. And the chemistry between them was not romantic.
