Kathy and her sister, Samantha, have always been a team. Throughout their time as witches, they've taken out more than their share of bad guys. But after Kathy meets Will, who she learns is a demonic Dark Knight, her loyalties begin to change.
Meanwhile, Samantha doesn't trust Will or his intentions. Still, Kathy can't help but feel tempted by the dark side as she falls deeper in love with Will. Crossing over would give Kathy the freedom to do whatever she wanted with her magic. No rules. No limitations. It would also mean breaking the bond she has always shared with her sister, who has made it clear that she wants nothing to do with the dark side.
When Will proposes they take over the underworld, Kathy loves the idea of having power. But it also leaves her with a choice that will change her life: abandon her family and the life she has always known, or give up the love of her life forever.

The characters and emotions pulled me into the story. Some parts seemed a little to long and could have been shorter. I'm have to get my hands on his other books, especially book one in Under the Moon Series.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Always is in my opinion...u I only listened!
it just had some really boring parts..weak character development...had that first book feel...but it is still a good story!
I did feel bad for Kathy after what happened to Samantha...and there was some funny banter between Kathy and Will!
** I was given a fee copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
Honestly it was not a bad story...more of a 3.5...the narration was very good...and if you like witches, it is well worth a listen...Kathy and Samantha are sisters, both have powers and are witches...and Samantha has 2 sons that are coming into their powers slowly but surely.Kathy goes on a job interview and meets Will...he asks her out and after dinner they end up being attacked by a demon fish...and Will kills it...you see Will has powers too...he has dark magic...Kathy is a white witch...but Will seduces her into marriage and almost switches her to the dark side...her sister convinces her she is under a spell...but now Kathy has put herself and her family in danger and it may be too late to save any of them!
Nice listen...and I have book 3 in this series and it is about the sons Josh and Chris..so I am moving on to it next!! This series can be read in any order..the books are stand alones... but fi together as well :)
It took me a while to listen to this audible book, not because I didn't find it interesting but because of lack of time. So I found myself going backwards to be sure I didn't forget parts of the story.
I guess to me the idea of witches living like normal humans with spouses and children among normal humans and casing spells on other witches . . . And then terminating a witch, well it is a very interesting plot!
Yes because the overall plot is a good idea. It's execution is a bit rushed and has some misses to me.
Most interesting is the complete turn around of a white witch for very unsatisfying reasons. The least is Will as a character since there is no true sense of what he is really about.
His grasp of female voices could use some help.
Yes to develop the main story as.well as the characters. It felt a bit rushed and jumpy. Kathy's motivations are flimsy and kind of unreal. Will had no true redeeming qualities to me.
“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.” This is my unbiased and honest review.
this book for me was a solid 2 stars. I wasn't a fan of Cathy and her snarky banter. I think it was a combination of the author and the narrator. she was almost intolerable. I did like the story but the characters were 1 dimensional. there was no feeling for me and if I can't get into a character to be sad enough when something bad happens to them its not really good enough for me.
*spoiler alert past this line*
I almost turned off audible and quit listening to it once they had Cathy plotting to kill her sister and the boys without remorse. I literally thought this was the most outrageous thing. she went from loving her sister to plotting her death. to me it was beyond crazy. I did keep listening to it but that was the real turning point for me of not liking this book. and the explanation was so vague for her sudden change to the dark side. it wasn't enough for me.
Yes because I just loved the story.
I'm not really sure who because they are all so different.
I didn't have 1 because they weren't easy to compare to each other because just like in real life everyone was different.
No idea what a movie tagline is so...
This story is unique to itself. I love the plot and how it's so different. The narrator does a great job, but I'm not really a fan of his Kathy voice (to me it's one of those voices that you make when you are imitating someone who is irritating you and you don't like them). Once I got past that though it was very enjoyable to listen to and kept me guessing as to what was going on the entire time.
Books about witches and demons have always entertained me and the Full Moon did just that. I really enjoyed this tale. It moved along nicely with developed character and made my commute seem much quicker. I did listen to the series in reverse order so I may go back and listen to book two and three again. Hopefully there's a book four in the near future.
David Neth’s new witching anthology series, Under the Moon, launches with this first volume about two sisters and their battle against evil.
The action is fast paced in this attention-grabbing thriller, but often to the point of feeling rushed. As Neth speeds along with his story, he skims over any real emotional depth, particularly in response to events which are tearing the sisters apart. The action is akin to a rollercoaster, offering a thrill ride worth having but ultimately not giving any lasting satisfaction.
With no disrespect to Nathan Weiland’s talent, he is an odd choice for narrator given the leading characters are both female. It puts him in the position of having to use soft or falsetto voices for the majority of the audiobook, which does get tiresome by the end. It’s a shame too, because his reading makes all the characters believable. He nicely realises all the unique personality traits, and he’s spot on delivering the naturalistic and often funny dialogue.

FULL MOON by David Neth is certainly interesting enough that it kept me listening. The author knows how to feed bits and pieces of information to the reader to keep them going. There were a lot of "Oh!" moments as I listened. The first two chapters are excellent at this while you discover exactly what kind of book this is.
The urban fantasy/supernatural genre is usually fun, and this fits right into the "fun" category. Action and humor.
The narrator: The reciting is semi-uneven. Obviously recorded at different times (usually on a per-chapter basis) on different days and it is slightly tinny at times. The voices feel a little strained/extreme at times. Will is an exaggerated deep voice. At some times, the voice of Kathy is a little bit like Liam Kyle Sullivan when he does his character "Kelly" (from the "Shoes" song). Overall, this didn't bother me enough to stop listening.
I was given this audiobook free by the author. So, I chose not to read the description of the story first. This helped the surprises to keep coming. I am writing this unbiased review with utmost honesty.
Audio book addict, spending a fortune on this passion. ;)
Although I read or listen to a lot of fantasy books, this was the first book featuring witches and dark knights. I remember having watched a few sequels of 'Charmed' way back, and the book reminded me of that in a good way.
We have the fight of good vs evil, and poor Kathy and her sister Samantha are drawn into it without any of their doing.
Which side will win? It doesn't look good for the witches, cause Kathy suddenly shifts her loyalties, and in the end, she and her family pay a dire price for it.
The story was entertaining, and I like the language. I had to find that the subject isn't my preferred one, but the story was interesting enough to keep me listening to the end.
Nathan Weiland did a good job at narrating, so it was an easy listen.
