Stars. Fire. Blood. Magic. One night long ago, a constellation disappeared and fell from the sky in the form of a boy. Secrets are being kept in the sleepy town of Lakewood Hollow, Colorado. Nothing but pools of blood and dripping words are left where bodies once were, and no one but Calum Wade seems to be worried. Life unfolds in shades of red for Calum, until a mysterious girl named Kate Black enrolls at his school and everything changes. Suddenly a dangerous world of dream demons, elemental enchanters, and blood witches unfurls before Calum. He learns that the stars have forever held his destiny, and that the constellations above are much more than what they seem. As Kate and Calum sink deep into a paranormal war, they realize that an ancient prophecy might hold the answers they seek. But life is not so easy for Calum, and he can feel his heart beat faster whenever Kate is close. Worse, Kate's blood holds a dark secret even more dangerous than the war between the demons and enchanters. Soon the two find that there are worse things than loving someone you shouldn't. For Calum and Kate, even love and the fiery power of stars may not be enough to break a curse as dark as the blood that binds their destiny. A romantic story of true love and dark curses, LIGHT OF THE MOON will leave you breathless.
Since the first time I saw the cover to this book i was fascinated. I wanted to know the whole story and after reading the synopsis i wanted to REALLY see what it was about. I had read another book this year with the same kinda concept of a person falling from the sky (not angel) but a star. So i though, "oh this might be like that" plus i really loved that book... BUT when I picked up LIGHT OF THE MOON i soon realized this was completely different in a LOT of GREAT WAY! It has such a unique way of writing. It really is a master piece. I wanted to just...QUOTE like 70% of the book.

This song "HURRICANE" by 30 seconds to Mars fits the book well! Hear the song & read the lyrics, "there is a fire inside of this heart and a riot about to explode into flames" and "the love we had, we had to let it go" ENJOY! ^_^
Book-Song match up:
Kate. Her name was ash in my mouth, more bitter than mist, and thoughts of her filled my mind. I hurried toward the hall with my head down, avoiding kate as mush as possible. As I rushed past her tough, I couldn't look away. When they locked with hers, helpless against the violet, the world dissolved into a ballad of quiet rage, whispered words like daggers in the air.
My heart boomed so hard against my ribs until: I can't breathe."And this is Calum Wade," Too much, too fast.Our eyes met. I'm dying. One moment lingered forever. Hope. Blue eyes so dark they looked violet.
Love? her eyes narrowed into this: I hate you.
When things were colored black and blue, I knew how to live. Now, in a world as gray as the sky outside, I was just as lost as the sunlight.
