I bought this for my daughter [15] at the same time as the first book, Changling [discover the beast within]. Both books are based around a fourteen-year-old werewolf called Trey who, rather like any teenage boy, is getting stronger by the day. So I suppose it's a typical lycanthropic 'coming of age' story. Rather like most netherworld romps there's also vampires - here the good vamps get on well with the werewolves but the bad vamps certainly don't. So it's not the cool indifference of 'Twilight' or the open warfare of 'Underworld'. I can't really say much else about this sequel's plot though, as it would rather ruin it for those who haven't read the first book yet [and beware of plot-spoilers in other reviews, if thats important to you].

My daughter loved both 'Changeling' books, giving them 4*, but then she is vampire fan-atic, having all the seasons of Buffy, Angel, The Dresden Files & Blood Ties and a collection of vampire movies/books. She found these changeling books 'an nice easy light read, that you could easily put down and pick up again. It's not a compulsive must read the next bit, but the books are interesting none the less'. This second book doesn't have any hint of a finish, the finale being largely setting up of the storyline for the next book in the series 'Changeling: Blood Wolf' - whose title does actually hint at the plot. Needless to say my daughter has bought and read this third book, which was published here in February 2010. So this Changeling series is recommended for any teenager who rather likes the vampire/werewolf genre.

I bought this as the second book in the series due to realy enjoying the first one. This one though just didn't hold my interest near as well. The story line was a bit tired, I found myself skipping pages to find a bit worthy of carrying on to the end.
It does have good parts, but just that, parts.

Anyone who has read the first book may be dissapointed with this one.

Lucien Charron is in a magical coma following his battle with his brother Caliban in CHANGELING. Only Mynor's Globe can cure him, but the Globe is held by Alexa's mother, Gwendolin, a sorceress consumed by black magic who lives with Caliban in the Tower of Leroth - a castle that moves between dimensions and can appear anywhere in the world.

Locating the castle is only the beginning of Trey's problems though when he, Alex and Tom are joined by Charles, an arrogant young magician who once dated Alexa. While they work on their plans, a mole within Lucien's organisation is reporting everything they do back to Caliban who is trying to revive the Draugr (undead creatures with superhuman strength and a grudge against humans) as part of his bid for world domination. With time running out, Trey and his friends launch a desperate assault on Caliban's stronghold, encountering battle angels, demons and evil magic that could destroy them all.

This fast-paced sequel picks up a few weeks after the events in CHANGELING. Trey is more comfortable with his powers but remains uncomfortably attracted to Alexa (who tantalisingly may have feelings for him). Charles is an interesting addition to the mix - arrogant but powerful he and Trey form a grudging friendship, which Feasey instils with humorous banter. Tom is given more of a role here and his love of guns and gruff charm is a nice counterpoint to the dark themes in the material.

The book favours action over character development, which is a shame as it means that Alexa's feelings about having to face the mother who abandoned her as a baby are brushed aside. However, Trey is beginning to become more rounded and there's some nice scenes where he unwillingly agrees to go shooting with Tom.

I originally bought this book because I was desperate for something new to read & all the books out didn't appeal. I am now hooked & have the set. A teenage boy whose life is changed by a man arriving at the home he lives in who claims to be his uncle.... his life is then changed in ways he never imagined when he discovers he's more than just a normal 14 year old.

I read this without reading the first in the series, Changeling, but newcomers won't find it hard to pick up the story as it stands very well on its own as a piece of exciting werewolf writing, and everything is explained succinctly and neatly to ease in readers who missed the first adventure. That said, it's encouraged me to order the first in the series, as Steve Feasey writes wonderfully, and I can imagine teen lads (and lasses!) loving this stuff - I'm enjoying it and am well beyond its target audience! The writing is mature and not at all patronising, with a nice clear narrative and some great descriptive sections.

Trey encompasses every lad's dream as the last werewolf, recruited to an underground firm battling evil. It's a conventional enough plot, with Trey heading a rescue mission, but there's lots of brilliantly described action to prevent it from becoming a cliche. There is a great mix of emotion (moments of sadness and elation both in good supply) and excitement to keep the pace fast enough to hold the most fickle teenager's attention.

Dark Moon is a great book by a very promising writer of young fiction - Feasey is definitely one to watch, and the Changeling series certainly deserves its place amongst great modern fantasy writing for young people.
