Format: Paperback
Jennifer Scales had the shock of her life when she discovered that she wasn't truly human. She found out who she really was right when she began to morph, which was perfect timing for her parents to tell her how she is beaststalker and weredragon. To make matters even worse, both the halves that make up Jennifer are at odds with each other.

Jennifer wants all sides to have peace with one another, and her trip to Crescent Valley shows this. Bringing along a human, Susan, her best friend who she finally revealed her secret to, another weredragon, a beaststalker, her friend, Eddie, and a werachnid, her ex-boyfriend Skip, Jennifer really does hope that things will go peacefully.

If Eddie and Skip can survive their fight with one another and her parents can get along, then anything can happen.

There at Crescent Valley is Xavier Longtail, a respected dragon who didn't fully support Jennifer when she was being chosen as ambassador, only because he doesn't believe beaststalkers and weredragons can live among one another.

Before she knows it, Jennifer is slowly influenced by Xavier's words, but not for too long. Soon after, an epic battle erupts, and the weredragons biggest threat, the werarchnids, have a huge advantage over them. Saved by a necklace given to her by her ex, Skip, Jennifer is left with Xavier, her family gone. This means that they both need to find common ground to save the weredragons and to save Jennifer's friends and family.

Will the idea of peace be totally obliterated or can it still have a meaning?

A wonderful third installment to the already imaginative series, THE SILVER MOON ELM continues Jennifer's journey of acceptance with even more obstacles to face. Jennifer becomes a stronger character and more history of all the species' is revealed. Detailed and intricate, MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi do not disappoint their readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jennifer begins to grow up - somewhat. 3.5-4 Stars 16 Aug. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Jennifer Scales series is contracted for 4 books, which is a good thing as the ending of The Silver Moon Elm (Book 3) opens up a host of plot arcs that beg for a resolution (in a good way).

That said, while I enjoyed this 3rd installment of Jennifer's story, I also found that I didn't enjoy it as much as the first two books. Part of this is unavoidable as the book is somewhat more grim than the previous books, despite the presence of Jennifer's snarky humor. Issues of love, friendship, loyalty, family, death, betrayal, and more are raised, and for the most part, dealt with fairly well. On the other hand, Jennifer's whining was annoying in several instances, which, admittedly, is typical of kids (and adults), as was her dealings with her friends, ranging from loyalty to insensitivity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps getting better 26 July 2007
By Animus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Another great read from the writing team of Alongi & Davidson (Alongi). Jennifer is a great character who is real. Not someone's idea of what a teenager is or what they remember being a teenager was like. Of course you can't really know how a teenager would react to were-arachnids, were-dragons, alternate realities and the genocidal rampages of a team of psycho freaks out to destroy you and everyone you love. Oh, have I said to much? I really loved this book. It was clever, well written and had a great balance of excitement and humor. This is not just a "teen" book. It's a great fantasy book about a teen. I think Harry Potter has shown people that just because the main character is under 18 that doesn't mean that nobody above that age would enjoy it. Don't pass this by.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good scales book 8 Oct. 2009
By Cindy Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you liked the first 2 books, you'll like this one. There's a point where the story gets a bit too weird (even for a weredragon story) but all, in all it's a good book. Parts are quite riveting.
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting mix of mix of modern-day fantasy, dragons, spiders, and time travel 8 Feb. 2015
By Mike Kalmbach, Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book will probably appeal to people who enjoy a mix of modern-day fantasy, dragons, spiders, and time travel.

I had a hard time getting into this one. Though I read a lot of fantasy, this is my first exposure to were-dragons, werachnids, and beast-stalkers, with several mixes involved (like the half were-dragon/half beast-stalker main character, Jennifer Scales). I later realized that this was the third book in the series, but it stands alone pretty well. Maybe some of the above concerns would have been addressed by reading the earlier books.

After overcoming my initial reaction, I settled into the story and enjoyed the ride. I really enjoyed how the author first separated Jennifer from all of her friends and family, forcing Jennifer to rely on her own cunning to solve the problems in the story. The time travel aspect was interesting from the transformation standpoint--it was fun to see how the world changed in this aspect. I thought the ending was perhaps a little too tidy for me, but overall it's a solid read for young adult fantasy fans.
