5+ stars for Moonlight Becomes You by @RobertHerold666 #supernatural #horror #newrelease #bookreview
Title: Moonlight Becomes You
Author: Robert Herold
Genre: Supernatural Horror
The Eidola Project travels to Petersburg, Virginia, to investigate a series of murders in the Black community—rumored to be caused by a werewolf. Once there, danger comes from all quarters. Not only do they face threats from the supernatural, the KKK objects to the team's activities, and the group is falling apart. Can they overcome their human frailties to defeat the evil that surrounds them?
A horror story about a werewolf that is just a werewolf is rare these days. This is a good old-fashioned werewolf scare - just add the KKK and you have evil in many forms. Moonlight Becomes You is exceptional in pacing and storytelling. The reader is captivated in myriad ways. One can be caught up in Nigel's story which is compelling and brilliantly told. The accurate period romance of Edgar and Saphne is also gripping. Annabelle's battle with internal demons is another great story. Add to that the hunt for a werewolf who attacks the African American community in post-Civil War America. On top of that, the scion of humanity the KKK is flourishing there.
The thought occurs when reading the detailed descriptions of the Klan that they were brought under control. When one despairs that evil groups today can't be controlled, remember the KKK no longer runs rampant as they once did. Right can overcome evil, sometimes it just takes time.
Moonlight Becomes You was a great read from start to finish. There are enough questions left unanswered that simply demand a third book. The characters are beautifully written and following their journeys is addictive. A fantastic book I recommend to any paranormal reader. If you were lucky enough to read the first Eidola Project, you must own this book. A great read.

The supernatural has always had the allure of forbidden fruit, ever since my mother refused to allow me, as a boy, to watch creature features on late night TV. She caved-in. (Well, not literally!)
As a child, fresh snow provided me the opportunity to walk out onto neighbor’s lawns halfway and make paw prints with my fingers as far as I could stretch. I would retrace the paw and boot prints, then fetch the neighbor kids and point out that someone turned into a werewolf on their front lawn! (They were skeptical.)
I have pursued many interests over the years, but the supernatural always called to me. You could say that I was haunted. Finally, following the siren’s call, I wrote The Eidola Project, based on a germ of an idea I had as a teenager.
Ultimately, I hope my book gives you the creeps, and I mean that in the best way possible!
