4 1/2 Hearts! "THE BLOODMOON CURSE is an eerie, suspense-filled tale of murder and insanity by Karen Wiesner. This emotionally stirring suspense will keep the reader anxiously waiting the answers at the end of the book. Be prepared to not put this one down once you start reading. Amberlyn is a woman like many that tried to balance a marriage and career. She marries a man whose parents believe women should stay at home. When she suffers another miscarriage she feels responsible and she feels that her husband holds her at fault. This is heartbreaking as the two each deal with their pain alone and find themselves not sharing their true feelings. The story is fascinating as well as highly suspenseful. Something walks the halls of Bloodmoon Mansion and it is coming for Amberlyn at the time of the full moon. This is what she is told and later comes to believe when she comes to work at the mansion. Even as the reader believes they have it all figured out there is still surprises left to experiences throughout the story. The fear builds as the reader worries about the safety of three small children and a woman that comes to love them. Amberlyn prays for help and struggles to figure out a plan of escape. The anxiety is almost overwhelming when escape seems impossible. Love and God will be called upon to save them from the danger that stalks Amberlyn. The storyline is highly imaginative and the descriptive skills of Karen Wiesner make the scenes come to life for the reader. THE BLOODMOON CURSE is a frightening gothic tale filled with anxiety building suspense and inspirational romance."

5 Stars! "Multi-published award winning author, Karen Wiesner, writes a suspenseful contemporary mystery with Gothic overtones in THE BLOODMOON CURSE. The fast-punching conclusion will take your breath away, as God's direction vs. the ancient evil found at the blizzard snowbound Manor at Bloodmoon Cove. There is plenty of heart-wrenching pathos in this Gothic-flavored tale of pediatric nurse, Amberlyn Lyons. Her husband, Cain Lyons, hasn't even realized that his wife is missing. He thinks she has gone back to work to salve her grief after losing her pregnancy. Only her good friend, Daniel Reynolds, intuits that she is in trouble. Not having confided her intent to anyone, no one knows where to start looking for her. After answering a desperate advertisement for a nanny, Amberlyn finds herself a virtual prisoner at the lonely, snow-bound, ancestral holdings of Bloodmoon Manor, where she has been hired to care for newly orphaned children. Caught in a blizzard and unable to contact the outer world, Amberlyn is desperate to protect the three children and herself against the diabolical forces haunting Bloodmoon Cove. The entire Bonaiaris family, deformed in body and spirit, live in the past. They worship their ancestors with unusual rituals, and Amber finds herself struggling to defend herself and the three children against the evil that pervades the entire ice-cold four story stronghold. This book will definitely keep you turning pages well past your bedtime."

5 Stars! "Karen Wiesner delivers one of her best stories with THE BLOODMOON CURSE. I was enticed from the first paragraph and didn't want the story to end. This is an author who has a seemingly unlimited imagination for character and plot, and I plan to read everything she writes. THE BLOODMOON CURSE is a fascinating read, worthy of a reread. This is an author I can consistently recommend, and I rate THE BLOODMOON CURSE one of Ms. Wiesner's exciting best."

5 Flags! "THE BLOODMOON CURSE is a horror story that really gives a new meaning to the word horror. Once you start reading this book, it's impossible to put it beside you. You can't stop yourself from finishing it. At Bloodwood Manor, the dead people are as important, in a terrifying way, as the live ones. The living people take care of the dead ones, but the dead ones are very demanding in an atrocious way. I'm really very excited about this book, and especially about the so-unexpected end. In my opinion, Karen Wiesner has written a page turner, and those of you who like horror will agree with me. Believe me, you don't want to miss out on this story. If possible, I would give this book 6 flags!"

5 Stars! "This modern day Gothic thriller grips the audience from the moment that villagers warn Amberlyn not to go to Bloodmoon Manor, where no taken for granted conveniences exists; and the gripping plot never slows down until the expected final confrontation. The contrast between Amberlyn and Katerina adds to the feel of foreboding that grips readers who anticipate bad things happening to the heroine and her three wards. The final twist to this tense tale will stun readers as few suspense thrillers can, as Karen Wiesner provides a frightening paranormal novel starring a woman who risks her life to try to save three small discarded orphans."

"Ghosties and ghoulies abound in this book of the paranormal bent. Combining the seemingly difficult genres of gothic romance, inspirational views, and a paranormal twist provide the reader with a different type of book. One that shows that faith in God is always rewarded and that the power of the heart heals all wounds."

"A story about a spooky old house and its strange inhabitants, THE BLOODMOON CURSE is a frightening tale and more of a horror story than a paranormal romance. The members of the household talk of the dead as though they live among them. Is that why the doors are locked and the windows sealed? Katerina claims that an evil ghost walks the halls. Amber knows she made a mistake when she didn't let anyone know where she was going, and prays that God will come to her aid. A fate worse than death awaits Amber and the children if she is unable to find a way out. It is very scary as she roams through the house and the mausoleum looking for a way to leave the house of horrors. The secondary characters add to the story, particularly Katerina, who delights in the anguish of Amber and the children, but who is obviously miserable herself. Daniel and Cain are good guys who only want to find Amber. If you are in the mood for a well written, frightening story, THE BLOODMOON CURSE is sure to fill the bill."

"This story kept me riveted and turning the pages... The development of the older children was great; I watched them go from totally terrified of anyone and anything in the house to accepting, trusting, and even loving Amberlyn. I felt for the protagonist... I understood her evil, her family intermarriage mental and physical problems... I would give this book a three and half wings for the plot, supporting characters and the fact that [Wiesner] fit a gothic tale in a contemporary setting very well."

5 Angels and FAR Recommended Read! "THE BLOODMOON CURSE is an intriguing read that sent spine-tingling sensations through this reader. I could feel the helplessness that Amberlyn felt with the loss of her babies, and the way Cain and his mother treated her was very unfair. I wanted to reach through the pages and offer her help. The story was so engaging that I couldn't stop reading. The ambience and mood of the surrounding events, especially at Bloodmoon Manor, was quite exciting. Ms. Wiesner makes the manor, along with the cemetery, so visual that I could almost feel and see the sights and sounds encircling Amberlyn. She allows this reader to sense the emotions and dread that lace the pages. This captivating read kept this reader practically hypnotized with all the actions. Unique and wonderfully written, this is one satisfying tale that this reader highly recommends. The story flows so consistently that the ending was something I never anticipated. Bravo to Ms. Wiesner for one story that I find a recommended read. I absolutely loved the cover, too." ~Fallen Angel Reviews http://www.fallenangelreviews.com/2007/January/LindaL-TheBloodmoonCurse.htm

4.5 Stars! "THE BLOODMOON CURSE is a freaky tale. As I read I kept thinking these characters are like out of an X-Files episode. I enjoyed the suspense as it slowly wound through the book building up the tension.Amberlyn, though seemingly a quiet character initially, has a gentle strength and resolve not to be a victim. And, although the character of Katerina is a nasty piece of work, I felt strangely sorry for her towards the end of the book. There is a strong theme of faith and spirituality throughout the book. However, it never comes across as too preachy. It's more that the characters beliefs are strong enough to overcome anything. What I liked about this book is it cannot be categorized in one particular genre. There is something for every reader in THE BLOODMOON CURSE. It's a modern day gothic tale, where the heroine is battling evil and relying on the power of love and faith to get her through. It's an excellent read. After reading this book, all I can say is be careful of any answering any 'nanny' advertisements. You may get more than you bargained for." ~reviewed by Janet for Once Upon A Romance Review http://www.onceuponaromance.net/TheBloodmoonCurseReview.htm
