Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review

When a movie crew arrives unexpectedly to shoot a vampire film over the summer, Erin’s small town world changes forever.

Erin is determined to find out, but how will James handle the scrutiny of an all too intelligent teenage girl?


Under the Desert Moon is a young adult paranormal story by Emma Meade. The heroine in the story is Erin, a 17 year old girl living in the small town of Copperfield, Arizona. Some excitement finally happens in her life when a movie crew shows up in her boring town to shoot a vampire movie.

Erin is drawn to the lead actor James – a handsome and mysterious guy that she knows she has seen before. She is stunned to find out that he played in an old tv show from 30 years ago, and he hasn't changed at all. He thinks that since so much time has past, he can get back into acting. Needless to say, things don't go well for him.

The only real negative thing I have to say about this book is the insta-love aspect. I like there to be just a little build up before the characters fall in love with each other, so it didn't feel real to me. I also didn't feel enough emotions from the characters. The interesting thing though, is that in this book the guy seemed more infatuated than the girl. Erin had a good head on her shoulders and was a bit reluctant to give in, considering the facts.

The plot was interesting and there were a couple of good plot twists. The ending was a little bittersweet. I'm not sure if this is a series or not – things were left to where it could be though. If so, I'm interested to know how the next book plays out.
