Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers? bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town. One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home. Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.

Cute, but has plot holes submitted by callmeavni on July 19, 2021, 8:38am Mooncakes follows the story of Nova Luang and Tan Lam as they fight the forces of evil in their town. The illustrations are vibrant and jump off of the pages, and the actual story is creative. I especially loved the representation of a f+nb romance, as well as Asian main characters. I just felt that the romance moves a bit too quickly to be realistic. I felt like the character arcs of all the characters weren't properly set up as well, so I as a reader didn't feel nearly as connected to characters. Nevertheless, a cute and adorable read.
