Format: Kindle Edition
Book – Before the Full Moon Rises

Author – MJ Bell

Star rating - ★★★★☆

Plot – good kid's story

Characters – interesting and relateable

Movie Potential - ★★★☆☆ (not sure how they'd do it. It would be very intricate)

Ease of reading – very easy to read

Cover - ✔

Suitable Title - ✔

Would I read it again – Not sure.



I'm on the fence about this one and I can't explain why. I'm somewhere between a 3.5 and a 4 star, but I've rounded up to the 4 because I think kids (between 10 and 15) will love it.

My main issue is that there are a lot of formatting issues with my copy. I'm not sure if every copy will be this way or if I've got an Arc, but every so often there is a chapter that is mis-formatted. Each paragraph (even when only one line) takes up an entire page so that one chapter takes forever to get through. It also broke up the ease of reading somewhat, but I do understand this isn't the author's fault. It could easily be a glitch that went unnoticed because it didn't appear until a few chapters in. But once it happened, it was probably that case in about 4 or 5 chapters.

There were a few spelling and grammar issues in the very beginning, but after the first three chapters, these fizzled out.

The fantasy aspect of the plot was good. There were a lot of creatures – Fae, bats, wolves, ogres – that kids will look for and love in a fantasy novel. They all play their part and some of them will be important in the following books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! 8 Jan. 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I chose the five star rating for several reasons: 1)it is well written. Very few grammatical errors, very few misspelled words. Both of which can make the reader stumble through and have to reread to figure out what it really was supposed to say. 2) The story idea is a little different from most.... Instead of a love story between boy and girl, it's a family love story. 3) Although there were a few curse words, they were not used in every other sentence, as some writers use them as nouns, verbs, and adjectives! 4) Last but definitely not least, I liked that even though this was a fairy tale, complete with monsters, fae, ogres, kings and queens, the writer gave credence to God. 😀

I recommend this to ages 13 and up! Looking forward to reading the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Favorite 10 April 2014
By Kj Partridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Deston has absolutely no clue who or what he is, all he knows is his mom disappeared and he got dumped into the foster care system. Now he is being sent to France because a long lost relative has spoken up. When he arrives he meets NiNi and the weirdness starts there. When he goes to the village he meets Margaux when he helps save her brother from bullies. He meets an elderly man who gives him a gift and disappears. He wants to explore the forest but is warned to stay away since the forest is dangerous. He decides to go in anyway and Margaux goes with him. Together they discover the most amazing things either of them have ever seen. What will all this lead to?
Without a doubt this is one of the most wonderful books I have read in a long time. It is beautifully written and wraps around you, pulling you into a story that is a fantasy anybody would be thrilled to experience. Ogres, fairies, pixies, and a great number more fantastic creatures await your eyes and sometimes your nose. Honestly you feel you could reach out and touch, if not be walking beside the characters at any given moment. I recommend this for the younger set all the way to adults, it is a fantasy world that we should all get to enjoy. Many thanks to M.J. Bell for giving me her book to read and review, I am a huge fan now.

I know you can sew, I know you can waitress, but I didn't know you could write. You can also get me lost walking in Patricia Park. Your mom gave me your book info last summer and I just finished book 1. I enjoyed it very much. I'll go on to book 2 soon. Tell your mom hi from me. Kathy Glass of whom I was 43 years ago!!
2.0 out of 5 stars I'm not the right audience. 1 Jun. 2016

I really enjoy a lot of YA lit, but this felt like a chore. The characters were stiff and unbelievable, and the plot seemed forced. Lots of editing errors, too. Honestly, I skimmed the last 80 percent because I felt like I HAD to finish it. However, based on the number of great reviews this book has gotten, I'd take mine with more than a grain of salt. Still, I won't be reading any more in the series.
