Mooncakes Collector’s Edition

We rated this book:


Get ready for a bewitching romance between a werewolf and a young witch. A young runaway, Tam, returns home as a werewolf and is attacked one night, but they end up being saved by Nova. Nova and Tam rekindle their romance, but something sinister is lurking in their quiet little town.

Prior to reading the book, I thought this would be a witch story involving potions and food and mooncakes. I wish mooncakes were more of an integral theme of the story, given the title of the book, but I digress. While I enjoyed the story and liked the main character, Nova, I wasn’t too keen on Tam and found them annoying. Why couldn’t Tam just listen to Nova’s grandmothers and stay out of trouble?

The art is super cute and comforting, making you want to curl up in front of a fireplace to read this, despite the dark and ominous parts of the story. This deluxe edition of Mooncakes features a slew of extra materials such as holiday card art, script breakdowns, and initial sketches. This graphic novel is perfect for young adults who love romance, witches, and werewolf stories.
