Publisher's Summary

Trapped. 

What could be a worse feeling than that? 

After 18-year-old Sam gets an invitation for a free vacation in the mail, she hops on the opportunity despite her mother's pleas not to go. With the realization that her best friends have all been invited as well, she's sure she made the right choice. Once they board the fancy cruise ship however, things aren't as luxurious as they had seemed. 

Passengers start to disappear and once the ship lands on a deserted island, Sam and her friends are left on their own to figure out why. Faced with a deadly predicament, they have to learn to survive amid a mass of nightmare creatures all out for the taste of her blood. With the help of a handsome yet suspicious island native, Sam must figure out how to get back to the mainland before she's trapped on the island forever.

I don't think the blurb gives it justice.

This was a really good book and it sounded intriguing but its far more than the blurb leads on. Sam gets a strange invite for a cruise. She sneaks out like most any teen would do. When she gets there some of her friends are there too. The cruise staff is weird and strange events begin happening from the start. The weird gets weirder as the story takes off and many unexpected twists take hold of the plot veering it into an action packed supernatural story.

The narrator seems right for this story to me. Her voice matches what I expect for the character and her pacing is good. I always keep my device set to 2.5. I loved how the story starts out innocent enough with an invite to a cruise. I get those phone calls all the time so I chuckled a little at the idea.

The book is full of suspense and mystery. It kept me engaged and wanting more.

Good quick story

Good story but bad narration as the narrator lacks depth & emotion. Story has some gaps but flows well overall. The main characters are developed well. A good young adult novel.

Chilling Thriller

Good storyline with mystery and action. You can just imagine yourself in the thick of the dangerous situation along with the other characters. Narrator does a good job with the characters.

was just ok

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book was decent. The story is interesting, if a little slow. I believe that is partially due to the narrator. She is a little dry and has a somewhat slow pace to her voice. Upping the speed a little helped, but I still found myself mentally drifting at times. All in all, the whole experience was just ok. Nothing that wowed me.

Blood Moon

This was a fair book in my opinion.The naration ,by Sarah Nour,was so slow,I upped it to 1.25 to have it sound normal.The storyline was promising but so much was left without explaination.I felt it should be labled as a YA book.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

That story itself was good. It could of been better if the narrator put a little more passion in her craft. Like us spy it was okay.

Different narrator would have helped

After roughly the 9th mispronunciation of the word foliage as 'foilage' I called it quits. The narrator was lacklustre and a story that could have been interesting, was ruined for me by the lack of enthusiasm clearly heard in her voice. I also believe that I am too old for this story as I believe it is definitely aimed towards young teenagers. It has received good reviews from others and I no doubt believe that it would be enjoyed by many. But for me, I have to admit that I did not finish it. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Good listen

This was an ok listen. It followed the typical teenage horror script, separating, running around, falling down and the strong female dying for love. The narration wasn’t too bad but there was very little difference between the voices of each character. There were also a lot of grammatical slips and mispronounced words such as "foilage" instead of "foliage", not sure if it was narrator error or misspelling from author.

Enjoyable story, but terrible narration...

The story follows 18 year old Sam, who gets invited on a cruise - along with many others of similar age. Strange things start happening, people start to disappear, and when Sam and her friends disembark on a deserted island they encounter a variety of creatures all desperate for a taste of their blood. If you like a horror story, mainly aimed at a younger audience - then you'll find this entertaining.
I thought the story itself was let down by very poor narration. I found it very synthesised, with a lack of expression. The story would have certainly benefited from the narrator trying to distinguish between the characters. What was, in the main, a well written horror story, was let down by an almost monotone voice - which I found it hard to concentrate on.
I'll certainly be putting Kayla Krantz's work on my watchlist, and hopefully the disappointing aspects detailed above will be remedied in future.
I received this book for free, in return for an honest review.

Different take on Vampire/Werewolf Creation

This was an interesting story. I liked the author's spin on the whole vampire/werewolf creation. I feel like there could have been more interactions behind Sam's relationships between Lance and Clyde. I a good majority of the the story was pretty unique. It does sort of leave room for the trilogy but there is only a minor cliffhanger, I didnt finish the story feeling incomplete but am interested to see where the author takes things in the next books.

I thought the narrator did a pretty good job in this performance. I would have liked a better recording in some spots; there were very faint electronic/buzzing noises in some spots that the equipment might have been making. It wasn't enough to be distracting but it was enough to notice. I didnt like the way the narrator said the word foliage, she would say foil-age. Not a big deal, but I did find myself mentally correcting her every time. Otherwise, this was a pretty good performance with good voice differentiation and was clear and easy to understand.

I received a review copy and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

An Interesting Idea

The first half of the novel engaged my attention with good characters and plot but the second half seemed over long and somewhat laboured. The narrator adds little and does seem bored with life. There are lots of distracting background sounds that are not associated with the storyline, especially towards the latter part of the book. This novel has great potential with some additional editing.

Never Accept A Free Trip.

Outstanding storyline full of horror and blood. It made me want to pick a side vampires or wolf's. Hoping this will turn out to be a killer series. No pun intended lol.

Blood Moon Rivew

Just imagine, receiving an invitation to an all expenses payed vacation. Everyone’s dream right? Well be carful what you dream about, because sometimes those dreams turn into nightmares.

That’s what happens to 18 year old Sam and three of her friends. After receiving the invitation in the mail, she runs away from home to go on the curse. However it’s shortly after she starts boarding the boat that she notices odd things around her.
Even her dreams have turned into nightmares, which she soon learns are really omens sent to her by a wolf.

After reaching the island, her nightmares start to become reality and soon her and two of her friends are split up from each other.

But it gets a lot worse the more time passes, Clyde (her best friend) gets kidnaped trying to protect her. She gets bitten, I won’t say by who or what though, I think some things need to remain a mystery.

I enjoyed listening to this book, it’s a first for me by Kayla Krantz, but I know it will not be the last book I own by her and I can’t wait to see what happens next in the series.
