    I received a copy of the ePub from the Goodreads group Lovers of Paranormal (LoP) in exchange for an honest review.Orphaned at a young age Grazi was raised by her nurturing Nonna (grandmother). She appears to be an ordinary girl but she will discover her shocking true identity in this fast paced Young Adult Paranormal Fiction. C. D. Gorri draws the reader into Grazi’s world immediately and the story does not slow down. Many issues are explored including but not limited to bereavement, bullying, high school, friendship, and family dynamics. The primary and secondary characters are well developed and lend themselves to the various layers of this read. Gorri’s werewolves and paranormal activities are original and not at all predictable. Grazi’s journey in her self-discovery is far from over. Is there a love triangle? Many answers need to be revelled in the sequel. Looking forward to the next book in this creative series.

    I received a digital copy of this book in return for an honest review. Thank you C.D. Gorri!“High school sophomore Grazi Kelly leads an ordinary life in the suburbs of New Jersey helping her grandmother with chores and attending Catholic school. Things are pretty good except for her bullying cousin and the rest of the obnoxious cheer team. Then things take a frightening turn when the night of the full moon arrives and the bodies start piling up. Grazi learns that she is different in ways she never expected. She finds herself torn between Sebastian, the school soccer star and Ronan, a foreign exchange student who shares her secret. She must uncover the identity behind the mysterious attacker, but is she ready for the entire truth?” (Book Blurb,C.D Gorri)Overall, this is a great book with a fresh outlook on what could have been a possible overused theme and I am definitely looking forward to the next in the series. I am amazed that this book was so good. It fits well in the YA category and is definitely a good book for the intended 10-18 age range audience. I was afraid it would would mimic so many other werewolf stories, but it didn’t.I liked the idea of a religious battle, especially Catholic, as I've never seen it done in such a way as this. I thought the characters were well developed and the build up of the love interest characters set the mood for anticipation. The "mean girls" high school drama part felt a little unnecessary after getting into the main plot of the novel, but understandable as it is a novel for the 10-18 year old range. I would have liked Grazi to have been a little older because fifteen is a little young, in my opinion, for what looks to be the build up of a possible “bond mate” character.l liked that the author described the changes Gratzi goes through physically as well as emotionally as she develops her understanding and acceptance as her role in the bigger picture of a leader of a battle between good and evil. I also like that she isn’t automatically supposed to be in charge of a pack but gets the chance to be comfortable in her new skin. There were several grammatical errors that can be distracting but I believe they are manageable to most as I tend to be overly critical. (I believe it is the editor in me). I would have given 5 stars if it weren't for these. As it stands I would have given 4 1/2 stars if it was available.Very good job, C.D. Gorri! "I never got headaches anymore when I stayed up late reading." (Gratzi says after her changes began) I wish I were a werewolf if I could have this side effect! (ᵔᴥᵔ)

    Incredible Book! I couldn't put it down for a second! C.D. Gorri is a wonderful author who keeps you hooked from the very first word and keeps you guessing all through the story. I loved the uniqueness of the story and the brilliance of the characters and their lives as this was not your typical werewolf story.As a witch myself, I didn't like that they had to be one of the villains talked about in the story as they are so often painted as the bad guys and thrown in with the devil, but there always has to be a bad guy right? As real witches don't believe in the devil this is what makes for a good story and what sets it apart from real life.The villain that was fought in the story I totally didn't see coming and was so brilliant! I can usually guess who it is before the end of the book and I had totally no idea! The villain is one of the best parts of the book and if done correctly usually tells the best story and this one was amazing!Another thing that sets a book I find is the behind the scenes characters, the characters that most people notice but overlook because of the love they have for the main characters. I always try to pick one of this characters and tell why they are my favourite and not the main characters because everyone knows the main characters are great. My favourite Character in this one was a toss up between Nonna and Angela. Nonna was amazing, everyone's ideal grandmother always loving, stubborn, and never lets you down. Angela is that friend you always hope you will meet is the true friend, loving, kind, thoughtful and has your back when you need it.The werewolves in this story were so different and unique that I really got into the story. I have a big love of shifter stories and this one caught my interest right away. I love stories that are unique and go their own way and this one defiantly fits the bill. I loved the way it ended as well and I so can't wait to read the next one!I highly recommend this story to one and all! especially to all the supernatural story fans out there! TBR and get your copy today!

    I am a true fan of Christine Gorri's. Her books are a pleasure to read. This is the first title in a series based around a werewolf on an organic diet. Yes - you read that write.What I really liked about this novel is the character got used to their new powers and skills over a long (believable) period of time. The author combined this with the typical woes of a teenage girl. There was a strong female protagonist, a nice little love triangle - which didn't demean the female (Yuss!). And some hilarious twists on the typical werewolf we all love - I'll leave you find these out yourself.Well written, pace pretty near perfect, and most importantly, a book you can't put down!I've already read Hunter Moon, the second in the Grazi Kelly series and eagerly await the third.Recommended for YA paranormal fantasy lovers

    I wish we had authors like this when I was growing upThis is a great book with a bit of a Cinderella feel to it…well, Cinderella meets paranormal werewolf, all which I’m a big fan of.C.D. Gorri has done a great job capturing the personality of Grazi. I like that Grazi’s school life isn’t all sugar and spice, and that she encounters everyday difficulties just like any other normal girl. Except Grazi isn’t normal. She’s a werewolf whose job it is to stop evil demons and witches. On top of that she’s also discovering her feelings for Sebastian, the high school soccer star and Ronan, a foreign exchange student.The werewolves in this story were different and refreshing. In fact, the whole story is different and refreshing. It’s a killer ending but well worth it.

    I received this book for free from LoP in exchange for an honest review. First of all, this book totally rocks! I can totally connect to Maria and I had always wished I could turn into a wolf. I love wolves and even have a red wolf as my spirit guide. I absolutely loved the twist with the Catholic Church being involved. That would be so awesome if it was true!! Was totally hoping she would just put Julianna in her place, not too fond of Sebastian- he's not right for her. Ronan on the other hand is awesome. I will be totally ready to read book 2 and I hope there will be 3 or 4 books to this series.Thanks so much for letting me read it!

    This was OK, but it suffered from detailed and repetitive raves, which included an overwhelming fixation on Catholicism, dragging the story down by inhibiting the pace and detracting from the actual storytelling. I can handle a bit of the god squad stuff, but I additionally found difficulty with the focus being God = Catholicism, excluding any other denominations which felt prejudicial.Obviously I won't be continuing on to the next book.

    ( I received this book free from the Author in exchange for my honest review)3.5 Stars I quite enjoyed this novel. But I did find, for me, that the beginning was slow, and slightly dull. That and, I didn't actually start enjoying the book till about, 75% in. What kept me reading were the little hints of something more and the griping foreshadowing. The story did lack description, making some of the scenes fell short. For example, there is a diner scene, Grazi and her friend are talking about a game, (called Wolf Moon). This game was portrayed as something important to the story line. But It ended fast (the food didn't even show up) and then we're suddenly back in Grazi's room, with no transition between the two. I was left confused about the whole scenario, because it actually leads you astray from the main plot, it has no purpose. Edit: I have read the second book, and the game has more of a background and purpose. That scene was kind of an intro, or set up, for the next book. But I stand by what I said, the transition could have been done better. At times the story did feel, to me, hollow and under developed. The writing at times, made me feel like I was reading a very rough draft of a student’s assignment. ButAs I said, the story does start to pick up, and it gets really good, especially the writing. Everything starts to get interesting when Ronan shows up. I didn't feel any emotions until he entered the picture. It was like Grazi was a robot; dull, grey, and just lifeless. Ronan brought colour and light, making Grazi became human, making her heart became human. Because common, she was pretty stony for the first half of the book. (Just saying..)I'm ecstatic I got a chance to read this book; I never would have read it my own. And though there are some structural problems and dullness, it almost works. As Grazi becomes more aware of herself and her wolf, the writing gets better and her feelings, emotions, are painted with colour and brightness.I'm hooked on this story. I have to know what happens; I have to know how it ends for Grazi and her family. I will, without a doubt be reading the second book.I highly recommend this read; you will be presently surprised on how it latches onto your heart/mind and makes you constantly think about what's going to happen next. Thank you to the Author for letting me read this diamond in the rough. >.<"Remember, every word, every sentence, has a hidden meaning when it comes to a book." - By Unknown Happy Reading Emily

    Marie Grazi Kelly is a fifteen year old girl who attends Catholic school and lives with her grandmother Nona and her mother's brother's family in an old Victorian home. Her parents died when she was three years old. Her life has been fairly boring, but that changes with the appearance of the new priest Fr. Gallagher. She discovers that she is a werewolf. She is not just any werewolf, however. She is the granddaughter of the Aplha of the Hounds of God, and Fr. Gallagher is her Uncle Sean. They are sworn to protect humans from supernatural evils. Grazi has unique talents, and it is up to her Uncle Sean and the werewolf Ronan to help her discover what makes her so special.The first few chapters of Wolf Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel give the reader background information about Grazie and her family. The action and suspense pick up around the middle of the book. Despite this, you won't be able to put it down. It holds your attention from beginning to end. And, of course, there is romance brewing. Grazi finally catches the attention of Sebastian, the school's most popular boy, but the appearance of Ronan throws her for a loop. Sebastian is sweet, athletic, gorgeous and very, very human. Ronan, on the other hand, is handsome, protective, loyal, and a werewolf. I am looking forward to finding out how Grazie handles the two. I can't wait to read more about Grazi in Gorri's next book Hunter Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel #2.

    Grazi Kelly was an orphan. Her parents were dead and she lived with her grandmother and her uncle’s family. She lived an ordinary life; nothing special. She wasn’t popular in school, didn’t have many friends. She went to a Catholic school, attended mass every Sunday and spent most of her spare time helping her grandmother in the garden. Nothing special, interesting or exciting.That all changed one day when she blacked out at school while running track for gym. She was never sick and didn’t understand what was happening to her. Her heart started pounding, her insides felt like they were trying to claw their way out. Naturally, the mean girls found everything funny. No one understood what had happened to Grazi, or so she thought. She would soon find out. A fantastical tale that she could have never imagined. The day she found out she was a werewolf was a life altering moment. She began learning about being a wolf, honing in on her special skills. With the help of Ronan and her uncle, she will learn to embrace her new life; life as a wolf.I definitely recommend this book. The story was well developed. Grazi is a very likable character. You can feel for her as she learns about her true identity.

    I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to read this book for an honest review.First off, I really enjoyed this book!Maria, nicknamed Grazi, lives with her grandmother and uncle and his family.After thinking everything is starting to go well, she discovers she's a werewolf and part of an ancient group of protectors.It was interesting to read a different story on werewolves and their purpose to protect the world.Grazi as a character is relateable and struggles with normal teenage issues.Not only is she trying to cope and learn about her new werewolf trait, she has also found herself in a love triangle.Overall a great read, short, perfect book to get out of a reading slump!

Now she gets to face another day of her lazy, stuck-up, bully of a cousin, Julianna and her followers, the clones. Little did she know that her life was about to change forever before the day was out. After standing up to Julianna and the clones who were picking on another girl in P.E. they started on her and again later when she became ill while running laps. Then again cute Sebastian did help her to the school nurse and stay with her until the nurse made him and her friend Angela leave. Maybe things are starting to look up. Then again maybe not. All the talk at school the next is about the dead body found, then another, then...I received this book as a gift and waited to finish a book I was reading before opening it. Then I thought, alright lets see what it is about. That was the last I saw for almost two hours as I could not pull myself away until the very end and then I went in search of book two, hoping against hope it might be ready to download and unfortunately as of this date it was not. Then I thought of an article I read on Facebook about this poor misguided fool who state he NEVER reads self published books as they are not up to the quality required by publishing houses. His loss as Wolf Moon is an excellent novella that you will be thrilled with. With vibrant characters that nearly pop off the pages and words so descriptive you can practically smell the woods for yourself, you will be drawn into the story. There will characters you will love and those you will dislike and even a few you may even fear. Pick up a copy today and be drawn into the ever changing life of Maria Graziana Kelly, known to friends and family as Grazi. Come with her as she learns her family's secrets and keeps a few of her own.

    Wolf Moon is an exciting yet unnerving legend of evil witches, deadly demons, and werewolf protectors that will stimulate your senses and leave your heart racing.Maria Grazi Kelly is in the 10th grade at a Catholic school. Her parents passed away when she was just three and her grandmother has raised her as her own. Grazi, a nickname most people refer to her by, leads a fairly typical teenage life. But, things are about to change. One day she's struggling to quietly get through high school and the next day she has the attention of Sebastian, the cutest most popular boy in the school. As if that whole thing isn't confusing enough, her long lost uncle appears and reveals a secret that's been kept from her, her entire life. Maria Grazi Kelly is a werewolf! Her uncle reveals the importance of embracing her change and her role to defeat evil. A young werewolf, named Ronan, travels from Ireland to help Grazi train for the upcoming battle. Grazi begins to come to terms with her transformation, but the startling truth behind her parents' deaths and the recent brutal murders in the area are more than she can handle. What else are those closest to her hiding?Wolf Moon is well worth the read. I was drawn to Maria and the strife between her snobby cousin and aunt (and ultimately relieved when Maria's grandmother finally puts them in their place) as we have all faced these types of people at one time or another. I think creating Maria as a down to earth teen with similar high school problems like many of those who will read this story is very effective. Being able to identify with Maria keeps readers from being shocked by her transformation and instead leaves them pulling for her gain control and battle to victory. The vivid detail and well organized plot make Wolf Moon an enjoyable and unforgettable read.I highly recommend picking up a copy.

    Complimentary copy given by author for a honest review4/5Genre(s) Teen/Young adult, Urban FantasySeries: Second book is availableCover: If you look at the moon you will see a wolf which I didn't see at first, pretty neat!Tags: wolves, pack, witches, fantasy, teens, highschool, strong femaleWe follow Grazi through high school as she's in self discovery of a secret. She not only finds out her true identity but the many lies surrounding her circle. Many new characters are introduce to join in on Grazi's becoming a werewolf and her new purpose. Beginning of the book gives the reader a great quick review of our main chic, Grazi pronounced (grah-tzee) which I love when authors give pronunciation for names. I know I butchered quite a few names in my head before. It does have a lot of religious reference but it is not a religious book. The reference is to the story line of where the creatures all play into each other. There's some high school drama in the mix with her cousin. The real action doesn't start till mid book, patiently wait till you get there. It does pick up and new interest comes around, Ronan and he's quite...fascinating. Grazi and Ronan chemistry is just starting and I'm sure it's going to build in the next book. The only thing I disliked about the book is the reasoning behind Grazi being "special". Maybe there's more to it in the next book, if not that may disappoint. There is cliffhangers and left unfinished to continue in the next book in the seriesRecommended read I'm sure this will be a favorite for many teens and young adults who love the things that go bump, hot werewolves, strong female lead, and love interest, or should I say interestS!Full review can be read at: http://pandorasopenedbox.blogspot.com

    I devoured ‘Wolf Moon’ rapidly which is fitting for a werewolf novel. It’s a terrific dark fantasy with a blend of romance and the supernatural.Fifteen-year-old Maria Grazianna or Grazi’s world is beautifully depicted—coloured, textured and scented. Characters spring from the pages like Grazi’s Italian grandmother, Nonna Rosa with her vegie garden, rosary beads and cherry lifesavers and Angela Tanner, the not so physically-perfect but lovable classmate. Grazi’s parents are dead and her life at school is difficult as it is at home with her tormentor and cousin, Julianna. Weighing in her favour, Grazi is smart and pleasingly detached from the need to be fashionable or to fit in with the popular clones at school. An interesting, but not overdone romantic thread is woven lightly through the dark plot with Grazi’s interactions with Sebastian and Ruben. The conversational tone between the heartless and ruthless teenagers and their victims is enjoyable, hinting of darker things to come. The atmosphere and background contribute to build the surrounding world, adding to a feeling of evil lurking around the corner. C.D. Gorri skilfully captures varied details of teenage bullying and suffering without dwelling on them. The plot takes a decided plunge into darkness around 1/4 the way in when Grazi becomes aware of a developing power and fearlessness. After being introduced to her frightening heritage and destiny, Grazi is launched into a foreign and violent world. Despite being repelled by her lineage of ‘blood, violence and sorrow’ she must learn to take her part to protect mankind from evil and supernatural enemies.‘Wolf Moon’ is deliciously dark and entertaining and will lure you in irresistibly from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to book two and three!

    This book was perfect until Ronan showed up. I liked the pace and the plot. Grazi was funny and relatable and I liked Angela a lot as well. It's also a pretty cool idea that these werewolves are protecting the church instead of being hunted by them, and as far as I know that's also very original However, I had some problems with Ronan. He's usually not a bad character. In fact, I'm glad they introduced another teenage werewolf and not just because it creates a love triangle. He's also someone that Grazi can fully relate to and turn to. But Ronan's weird. His character can be inconsistent. A lot of the time he acts and talks like a normal teenage boy. But there are times when he's completely formal, as if he belongs to another century, and that's never really addressed. It annoyed me. Grazi can also be annoying when she's around him, like when she blamed herself for things that happened before she was born and had to apologize to Ronan because she made Ronan tell her. She deserved to know since it was her past and she shouldn't feel sorry that she asked him about it, nor should she have a huge inner monologue about how she's a terrible person. This is one of the few instances where Ronan has more common sense than Grazi and he's as perplexed as I was about why she had to apologize. So I'm definitely rooting for Sebby in this book. Any fans of Twilight and teenage supernatural romance in general will love this great story.

    Wolf Moon follows the story of Grazi Kelly, or perhaps gets the story started as this book is the first in a series. Grazi is a high school sophomore in New Jersey attending Catholic school. She also happens to be a werewolf. She’s dealing with the usual adolescent challenges until a fateful full moon when she finds herself in the midst of trying to figure out who’s responsible for a bunch of bodies. She’s torn between two boys. It’s a classic conundrum – popular guy, or the one who understands you and, in Grazi’s case, understands her secret.The author does an excellent job of creating relatable characters and ushering the reader into a world where the ‘reality’ barely contains the paranormal world hidden behind the façade. The author’s prose is descriptive and entertaining. The pacing is excellent! I kept turning the pages because I needed to know what was going to happen next. The author also does not fall for stereotypes in her characterization of the various players in this world, which includes demons, witches, werewolves, etc. All are portrayed with complexity.While this is clearly a YA novel, it’s perfectly suitable for adults, as the author’s writing is so strong and she does an excellent job of crafting a good story. You can’t get past the YA stage of life without living it, so the challenges faced by Grazi are relatable for everyone. This is a well-written YA paranormal coming-of-age tale.

    The story sets its scene in New Jersey. Maria Grazi Kelly, the main character is a Catholic high school sophomore. I can relate to her as I remember my own days growing up in Catholic school. Any way, back to the story - It unfolds with Maria living at her grandmothers house, her parents passed away when she was just a toddler and a secret her grandmother has held onto for many years has just been revealed. Maria is a werewolf on her fathers side..... Disturbing and somewhat confusing for such a seemingly normal teenaged girl struggling through high school and finally getting the attention of one of the most popular boys in her school 'Sebastian'.Two totally different worlds is hard to grasp and even harder to mesh together. Ronan is a wolf who is sent from Europe to protect and train Maria - But as bodies keep piling up........... (no spoilers)A YA novel of a romantic supernatural presence. All of the characters are well played out and convincing. A nicely lit back drop that reveals a good flow to Maria's personality. She has quite despicable and cruel family members (especially her bullying cousin) who doesn't make life any easier for her.This is the first book I have read by the author but it didn't disappoint. I will be definitely reading more of her work in this series.I was given this book for reading, evaluation and an unbiased review.

    In Wolf Moon, we are introduced to two worlds. And the main character of the story, Maria, as an interesting bridge of sorts between these two worlds.Maria, or Grazi is what many would consider an average teen, relatable in so many ways in both mannerisms and desire.However all this changes as life begins to change for Grazi. As the story unfolds, there are many theme-sets that will carry your interest as well as unfold the plot in a semi-frustrating way that the reader is likely to share with Grazi.From vain, antagonistic family, the pressures of school, to the calls of the heart, and (in Grazi’s case) the call of her wolf.C.D. Gorri excels as a story teller in pacing the reader through the same frustrations as Grazi. I literally found myself wanting the same answers Grazi was trying to obtain. There are strong emotional moments during several points. Some have to do with family love, some with (confused) romantic love, and others have a unique emotional and “in-the-moment” immersion during some fast pace action scenes.Concerning my read and review of Wolf moon, I’d like to put a note here, that I read all three novels before I reviewed them… a testament to the strength of Grazi’s ability of storytelling, as I just had to read all that was available before I could really put the story down to review.Excellent work.

    Grazi Kelly’s life has been pretty low key. She has been raised by her grandmother since her parents’ deaths, attending a Catholic school, and was living the life of a typical young girl. But, that all ends when her uncle reveals that she is a werewolf. Not just any werewolf, but a descendant of a very important and powerful werewolf! She must now learn how to control her powers and protect humans from all supernatural beings. Add in a very jealous rival/cousin, the attention of two attractive boys, and lessons on how to control her powers and be the best werewolf she can be, and you can see the dilemma that poor Grazi must deal with.The author does an amazing job of writing a character (Grazi) that is easy to care about. She is an endearing teen who must learn to balance her new life (being a werewolf) with her everyday teen life. Grazi’s life has been simple until recently. She loves her grandmother and didn’t socialize much outside of that. I first thought that this was going to be a typical coming of age story of a shifter, but that is not the case at all! The author has woven a tale so different from any other YA paranormal story I have read.My only complaint is that I lost an entire day because I could not put this story down. Well done, Ms. Gorri…well done!*Copy provided for review.

    Maria is a sweet teen, orphaned at a young age and raised by her grandmother. Her aunt, uncle & cousin live with them as well. The aunt and cousin are unusually cruel to Maria. I never really understood why the aunt hated Maria so much. The cousin, Julianna, is a popular girl and bullies late bloomer, Maria. Maria learns she is a Werewolf and her whole life changes. She is almost leading 2 parallel lives. One life is a typical normal teenage life. She has a crush on a boy and he likes her back. Her other life consists of fight training and mental gymnastics to contact her wolf. Maria is naturally frustrated at her inability to mesh her 2 lives.We meet a wolf, Ronan, who is sent to help train and protect Maria. Together they find and dispose of a demon who is hunting humans in and around the school. Many questions are raised regarding how important Maria is and what really happened to her parents. This book can be a stand alone read, as the demon mystery is resolved. The story of Maria and Ronan, however, is just beginning. I cannot wait to read and learn more of their story. I would recommend this story to young adults and up. There is no sex, only very sweet feelings of first love.

    Wolf Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel - ReviewFrom the first page, I was sold. C.D Gorri's writing is so natural and compelling. I read the book in less than two days and loved every minute of it!It didn't take long to know the protagonist Grazi . She is a strong, smart and endearing teenager (who also happens to be a werewolf). As Grazi tries to navigate high school she has to contend with her changing body (adolescence and werewolf), new love and her jealous, popular cousin's torment. As the story progresses, Grazi begins to find her true self. She discovers first love, a sense of purpose, and physical strength. She comes to understand her role as a person in the world and her higher calling in life. The author does a beautiful job crafting a deep and fun read. The story is well developed from the early foreshadowing and hints that something about Grazi's life is magical and different. Early on her family secret is palatable and unnerving (in a good way). This story is laced with humor (how does a teenage girl / werewolf navigate the teenage world of beauty and friendships?) One of my favorite aspects of this story is the werewolf lore through out the story. I highly recommend this book!!! I can't wait to read the next one!
