    I can t remember exactly when I stumbled upon this book at the library, but judging from the publication date 1994 in 1994 I was in high school, and I probably picked this up somewhere close to graduation I was looking forward to college, so this book appealed to me on that level, and I was messing around with funny things like tarot and runes and moon phases and stuff I loved everything about this book, from Angelica s peacock blue pen and her scent of sandalwood and oranges, to Oliver s I can t remember exactly when I stumbled upon this book at the l...

    This had been my favorite book for years Despite, or maybe because of, the dark adventures our heroine, Sweeney, witnesses and partakes of, this book really spoke to me and reminded me very strongly of my own younger adventures Also, this book introduced me to C.P Kavafy, and I m forever indebted to that Even sitting here writing this review, some of that magic comes rolling back into me, reminding me of that time of my life And Oliver, god, Oliver Haven t read the book in about four years This had been my favorite book for years Despite, or maybe because of, the dark adventures our heroine, Sweeney, witnesses and partakes of, this book really spoke to me and reminded me very strongly of my own younger adventures Also, this book introduced me to C.P Kavafy, and I m forever indebted to that Eve...

    I can tell, even before I ve finished typing one sentence into this dialogue box, that this is going to be a very long review Why Because I really liked the first two thirds of this book Loved it even, for the sensual, pungent writing, the overwrought but undeniably effective atmospherics, the genderbending, the rampant bisexuality of the ensemble cast, the references to UC Berkeley, the evocation of a very specific kind of college aged lethary alienation, the violence of feeling that i I can tell, even before I ve finished typing one sentence into this dialogue box, that this is going to be a very long review Why Because I really liked the first two thirds of this book Loved it even, for the sensual, pungent writing, the overwrought but undeniably effective atmospherics, the genderbending, the rampant bisexuality of the ensemble cast, the references to UC Berkeley, the evocation of a very specific kind of college aged lethary alienation, the violence of feeling that is all but gouged into these pages, the deft incorporation of fantasy elements Speaking of fantasy elements HOW TITILATING DO I FIND THEE The malignant, black winged angels The creepy hallucinations The brutal bloodbath rituals and the threat of sex edging every exchange and the s...

    Waking the Moon is entitled to its 5 stars, if only because Hand introduced me to the melancholic Greek poet C.P Cavafy Fortunately, this was such a captivating read as well Partly because I first discovered Waking the Moon when I was living the college life myself, flirting with the occult and occasionally attending goth parties in abandoned churches The parallels I thought I found were the sprinkles on top of this book and its successor Black Light Hand masterly crafts a story that often Waking the Moon is entitled to its 5 stars, if only because Hand introduced me to the melancholic Greek poet C.P Cavafy Fortunately, this was such a captivating read as well...

    This is my second time through Waking the Moon, and it is just such a PLEASURABLE book, lush and spooky and expansive On first read I expected a horror novel, and was a little disappointed, but taken as a feverishly overwritten dark fantasy, it can t be beat It reminds me a lot of Neil Gaiman s American Gods, but I suppose this is American Goddesses, as narrator Sweeney finds her college friend...
