Midnight Moonlight by Eren Reverie

Werewolves, Vampires, Faeries and a severe case of Generalized Anxiety Disorder. 

Abigail is not afraid of anything in particular. She’s just . . . afraid. All the time. Of everything and everyone. She weaves wild stories to explain her state of perpetual anxiety to the people around her, preferring they treat it as a joke than treat her as a neurotic freak. It’s a plan that works well enough: with a little help from her best friend Megan, Abigail can almost pretend to be normal.

But when Megan decides to help out with Abigail’s love life, Abigail finds herself trapped on a date with a ridiculously sexy man who accidentally lets slip that some of the things Abigail has “made up” are true – and that the rest of the truth is stranger than her fiction.

Suddenly thrown into a world that has turned out to be crazier than she is, Abigail is going to have to learn to cope with werewolves, vampires, faeries, and being passionately kissed – and she’s going to have to learn fast, because there is a shadow war that has been roiling through the background of history, and she’s just come to the attention of all the players.

Note: Midnight Moonlight contains pervasive harsh language; also, some graphic sexual content and graphic violence.


An ongoing series, with new episodes sporadically

It’s good

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jun 5, 2015: So yeah, urban fantasy with werewolves, vampires, witches . . . It’s been done to undeath, you say? Well, read this story anyway. Sure, the manifestation of these supernatural beings is fairly standard, though the explanation for how they interact with the mortal world is quite intriguing, and makes a weird amount of sense, almost enough to make you believe . . . no, don’t! Ha ha of course magic is only a myth.

Moving on. To not be just another urban fantasy, this story has some unique elements. Chief among them is the protagonist, a sympathetic soul with a mind warped by irrational fears and manga. An early chapter could be titled "The World’s Most Awkward Girl Goes on a Date". Only the most patient of gentlemen get through a date with Abigail! And yes, humour is another distinguishing characteristic of this serial. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, just like the heroine’s unique brand of silliness gets her through her terrifying life. Another thing that worked for me was the integration of the sexy times..at first just Abigail’s bizarre and slightly kinky fantasies, but as a number of fantastic things turn out to be real Abigail may have more trouble with the concept that she might have a sex life than that magical beings are real. Its a neat contrast, along with the way in which Abigail is so much better at dealing with real monsters than her imaginary fears. That said, there’s a bit of Tales of MU-esque suspension of disbelief required (yes, I’m comparing yet another serial to Tales of MU) in that almost everyone has the hots for the socially awkward, repressed, and (self-described) ordinary looking girl.

In sum, this story has heart, humour, titillation, excellent writing, and, another standout, some really creepy fae. The scene in which they first show themselves is truly chilling. That’s one of a series of exciting chapters, there’s also some parts where the pace flags a bit, but Midnight Moonlight is always a fun read.

A romance fans’ delight!

By Tartra, author of The Other Kind of Roommate

Jan 23, 2015: As I was very clear to mention in the pile of comments I left among the chapters (writers beware: I am a chatterbox, and I will swamp you with a dozen things to have to moderate if I’m going through your stuff), I am not a romance reader. And this is a romance.

Granted, it seems like a good one, and it doesn’t start out that way. The first chapter is a testament to Eren’s ability to write a character whose [more . . .]

Surprisingly Imaginative Protagonist!

By Oniwasabi, author of The Monster They Deserve

Jan 22, 2015: So, first thing I want to clarify here: I read this story and am writing a review because the author was so kind to review my own work, and I was a little surprised that no one had done so for her as yet. Urban Fantasy is NOT one of my favorite genres, hence why I am not trying to assign a star rating to this book. I will say that it held my interest long enough to read through the entirety (48 chapters) of book 1. If the story [more . . .]

Solid Modern Fantasy

By Lillen, member

Apr 15, 2015: A well written work, the characters are believable and lifelike which is where this serial shines the most. Some of the descriptions for environments and areas are glossed over a little, but that is more than made up for by the depth of the characters.

The only thing I really dislike is the amount of borderline (And sometimes outright) erotica present. A lot of time is spent either describing saucy acts or having the main character imagine them, but this is [more . . .]
