the moon in your eyes Reviews
Sometimes you just crave an old fashioned horror story, a literary excursion into the literary equivalent of a slasher flick or b-grade monster movie. You know the majority of characters won't make it out alive, but you're anxious to see just how each of them meets their demise.The Moon in Your Eyes is one of those stories. Adrian W. Lilly weaves a story in which a group of strangers set out for a few days of technology-free hiking and camping. Their reasons for being there range from court order to new age nonsense, and from adventure to nostalgia.Lilly takes a few pages to introduce the characters, and then gets right into the carnage. It's a fun, frantic, bloody story, with the monster fiercely front-and-center. There's no doubt or mystery here, just a desperate attempt at survival. What ultimately makes it stand out, however, is the entirely surprising series of twists in the final pages.At 50 pages, The Moon in Your Eyes is perfect for a quick read in the dark of night.Originally reviewed at Beauty in RuinsDisclaimer: I received a complimentary ARC of this title from the author in exchange for review consideration. This does not in any way affect the honesty or sincerity of my review.
This was a great old fashioned, sitting around the campfire, kind of horror story. A bunch of different, yet stereotypical, characters decide to go on a hiking/camping trip where electronics aren't allowed to hopefully find some peace and relaxation and just get back to being who they want to be. First night in there's a ruckus outside the tents and we are first introduced to the beast of this story, a werewolf! Now, I haven't been a big fan of werewolf stories since Twilight ruined a lot of that but this. This is what werewolf stories are all about! There are a few minor typos throughout the story but nothing too distracting and nothing worth writing home about.Would highly recommend to lovers of the old-school horror tropes. I don't typically do 4 stars for such a short story, but really, this is what you want from an old-school werewolf story so it totally gets an extra star.I received a copy of this story for free from the author in exchange for my honest review.
You can find this full review and many others at Scifi and Scary's Book Reviews.The Moon in Your Eyes was a great read. I had my reservations at first because, especially in short stories, character dumps can be a really rough way to set out and there’s been more than one case where it ruined it for me. Not the case in The Moon in Your Eyes. Maybe this is because you have a sinking suspicion that at least half of them are going to die, maybe its the writer’s talent. Either way, you wolf down the character introductions as you watch the pack come together for their hike.This short story reads like a perfect b-movie flick, complete with a handful of archetypes including the rebellious teen (nice nod with the name) , the horny campers, and the cowardly muscle-bound egoist.You know when you find yourself cheering on a character in a short story that you’ve found a good one, and that definitely happened in this one. Plus, the ending was perfect. I love it when an author is willing to end it in that particular way.Definitely a short story worth reading!Disclaimer: Received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I'd like to start off this review by thanking the author, Adrian Lilly, for sending me this book. I really appreciate receiving this fantastic book. Now back to the review!This book was mind-blowing! It is a short story so I was able to read it in one sitting, but even if it were longer, I don't think I would be able to put down this book! It's just so captivating and hooking and it is literally impossible to NOT get hooked onto this book. I loved how this book was action-packed, and remained action-packed throughout the novella. It was very faithful to the eerie and suspenseful atmosphere it created in the opening scene and it was faithful throughout the book! From the little witty lines said by these kids, to the realistic details like how the kids didn't have any technology, every aspect was perfect! I could clearly tell that a lot of thought went into making this book and it was executed perfectly! I could definitely see it translated into a short film!My favourite parts of the book were the beginning and the ending. The beginning was so horrid and grim and it was a perfect way to give the readers a taste of what the book would be like and get them into the mood. The ending really wrapped up everything perfectly. It was twisted, unexpected, and it left you shocked. It left so much to interpretation and I feel like the more you read the book, the more ideas you get. Since it's so short there are a lot of details left to you to understand. Like how exactly the werewolf looked like and the kids. It was so fun to read and it really stimulated my mind.Fans of MTV's "Teen Wolf" would love this quick horror book, as well as anyone up for an adventure. I definitely recommend this book, I was so shocked by it! I loved it!!! My favourite line was, "'It's a fucking werewolf', Brent hissed. 'Haven't you ever seen a fucking movie?' Despite how scary it was, I was still laughing out loud. Also, "I just might survive, he thought, and then he heard branches snapping as something approached." Uh-oh! Just a taste of how funny yet eerie this book is for anyone who is interested!
Not my typical genre, but I really enjoyed this werewolf horror story! I loved the way Lilly gave every character a nice backstory, and the buildup to the actual hiking trip was quite fun to read. The story had a nice pace, and there were lots of little twists and turns. I'm happy I read this and would recommend to others!
Moon in your Eyes by Adrian W. Lilly Being a slasher film and werewolf fan I was excited to get a chance to read and review this ebook. The story itself to me was very reminiscent of an old drive-in b-rated horror movie, so long as you were just in it just for the gore. And I was not disappointed. Pros:In your classic horror movie style a number of strangers with varying personalities embark on a camping trip and the brutality that follows leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering who, if anyone will make it out alive. In the midst of the carnage there is comic relief thanks to Brent and his outburst "It's a fucking werewolf" Brent hissed "Haven't you ever seen a fucking movie?" which sounds like something that I would have said.Cons:I wish the story had been a litle longer.There were also a few inconsistencies and typos within the story but again that to me goes with the old horror movie vibe. All in all it was a good read that I did enjoy and would recommend to friends. This book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review
The Moon in Your Eyes was a horror base story centered around a group of individuals entering the woods, only to later be attack by a werewolf. I won't spoil much, but this is a story that brought back that olden feeling of werewolf horror. If one is looking for a werewolf story that shows werewolves as the monsters they can be, I highly recommend picking this quick read up.
