Book Shelf: Moonlight And Midtown (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum #1.5) by Christina Bauer

“Mixes cherished fantasy classics with modern magic and moxie” – Foreword

After battling werewolves and evil aunties, Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life. No more crazy aunties. Her curse is toast. And Bry’s new man, Knox, is literally a dream come true. Best of all, Bry will soon attend a regular high school. Forget those sketchy tutors! To get ready, Bry is dedicating the rest of her summer to some serious back-to-school shopping with her best friend, Elle. It’s a blast, except for one thing:

Mysterious strangers are following Bry across Manhattan.

All these stalkers have oddly familiar scents and an uncanny ability to slip into the shadows whenever Bry tries to confront them. Even worse, their presence is making Knox act crazy with a capital C.

“Bauer’s unique voice blends magical fantasy, swooning romance, and a bucketful of teenage sass.” – Booklist

But Bry’s having none of it. Enough of her life has already been ruined by secrets. With Elle’s help, Bry plans to confront these strangers, find out what they want, and send them packing. Trouble is, the truth about their identity won’t be so easy to manage, especially when Bry finds out how these stalkers could change her future with Knox…and not for the better.

Perfect for readers who love young adult books,gamma guys, contemporary fantasy, fairy tales, satire/comedy, paranormal romance, fairies, magic users, shapeshifters, and coming of age stories.

Moonlight and Midtown by Christina Bauer is a fun but quick novella in the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum series that draws readers back into this magical world of mischief and adventure.

Having battled zombies, werewolves and evil aunties, Bryar Rose is ready for the next stage in her life which includes learning the ins and outs of her new werewolf side and spending time with her man Knox. Oh, and best of all, she’ll also be starting at a regular school soon. If only she could find clothing that doesn’t shred the moment she transforms into her wolf? Enter a fae shopping spree to find indestructible clothes and soon Bryar and Elle find themselves caught in the middle of a fight against some fairies and in way over their head. How will Bryar get out of her latest mess?

Taking place between books 1 and 2, Moonlight and Midtown is an enjoyable look into Bryar Rose’s life that allows readers to discover how our heroine is adjusting to life now that her werewolf nature has been released. Short and easy, Moonlight and Midtown sees Bryar, Elle, Knox and Alec back along with two new characters; hilariously adorable and hopeless werewolves Abe and Hollywood, who just want to be helpful.

Definitely a must read for fans of the series, Moonlight and Midtown is a quaint read and is a great way to tide yourself over until the next full length novel in the series releases.
