REVIEW

I received this book for review directly from the author vis Bostick Communications both in ebook format and a paperback. Thank you so much for allowing me to read this beautifully written & illustrated book.

I loved the cover of this book as soon as I saw it but wondered wether the quality and  beauty of it was going to be reflected in the story and I wasn’t disappointed. The story was about a young wood fairy and her journey to see what was wrong with her GrandFairy Cyce as a result of her worry because she hadn’t had any communication from her for a while. It also taught about trust, respect, love, loyalty and Family.

When Loriel arrived at the Grand Fairy’s cottage to be told that she had been kidnapped by a smelly troll she and Padra the Grand Fairy’s pet talking mouse quickly devised a plan to rescue her. Once home again and once Loriel’s Cousin a water fairy arrived the Grand Fairy started to do some training with them that was until she decided to go away for a week and leave them on their own.

The two young fairy’s broke the GrandFairy’s trust while she was away because they were told not to touch anything or doing anything they shouldn’t while she was away, and they found a hidden door which they opened  then went in to explore.

When sixteen year old Rachav drinks the Moon Temple’s forbidden wine, she hardly expects it to result in         the death of a priestess. But when King Nur orders Rachav to serve the Queen of the Night – the                               kingdom’s powerful goddess – as restitution, Rachav’s identical twin, Zaron, has her own reasons for                   joining the priesthood and offers to take her twin’s place. But choices have consequences. Now Rachav’s            family is in danger. As she uncovers the shocking reason why, she finds an ally in Salma, a brooding                nomad who wields an ancient force powerful enough to destroy the entire kingdom. While the epic                        showdown rages above the city, Rachav plays a dangerous game of her own. Can she rescue her sister and          right the wrongs of that fateful choice?  Or will the king succeed and trap her in the doomed city?

REVIEW

I’d like to  start  by thanking Netgalley and the author for allowing me to read this book as well as Samantha Lien for the book tour asking me to take part in the book tour as it gave me the pushed me to finally read the book.

I thought it would be nice to start my review by including some of the advanced praise for this book, so here it is:

D. Donovan, e-book reviewer for Midwest Book Review: “There’s a journey, there’s danger, there’s sibling interactions from rivalry to love, and there’re political and spiritual threads throughout to keep readers riveted on characters and confrontations. It’s a pleasure to see quasi-history reinforced with a believable scenario (naughty teens stealing something forbidden, caught, and paying for their transgression); and it’s also satisfying to see ‘Moonfall’ evolve into a much wider story than that of simple teen rebellion.”

Jennifer Sadler-Venis, Concourse Online:  “‘Moonfall’ by Vanessa Morton is written as an embroidered historical Biblical fiction, yet it reads as a fantasy and delves into the lives of previously unexplored individuals. A thoroughly enjoyable story that proves itself to be both authentic and engrossing – action packed as it was, by the end I was left wanting more.”

Fay Lamb, author of “Stalking Willow,” “Better than Revenge” and “Charisse”: “Vanessa Morton has infused Biblical history with fiction to produce a novel that brings to life the history surrounding Israel’s entrance into the land of promise. Peering inside both the camp of Israel and Jericho, the clash of societies meet, and God’s promise is fulfilled. The author’s imagination intertwines with fact and tells a story that is not soon forgotten.”

Cynthia T. Toney, author of “Bird Face”: “Through the lovely young Rachav’s eyes, Vanessa Morton gives a stunning, accurately detailed portrayal of the life and times surrounding a real Biblical event in 1406 B.C. The fictional Rachav comes to life and represents women of courage and selflessness – from anywhere and any point in history – who accept and endure difficult challenges presented to them. With beautiful language and poignant
storytelling, Morton inspires today’s young women to be strong in faith and love.
Congratulations to this debut author on a satisfying and memorable read!”

This is an amazing fantastically well written book which was a joy to read. The development of the characters, plot and world was brilliant and evocative which made it a true page turner.

Some of the descriptions of scenes and events happening were so well written that I felt like I was an onlooker in the story, for example when ever the use of incense was described it was done in such a vivid evocative way that I actually felt like I was smelling it my self.

Rachav (according to the bible Rachav was the woamn (protitute) that helped the Isralites to capture the city of Jerico in the Promised land) and Zaron’s parents Ephron (a hitite that sold a cave to Abraham according to the bible) and Isus (an Egyptian goddess) were really strong and important characters who were real family people, their lives revolved around their family. Especially Isus even though she was really Ill through the majority if the book. I loved the way that by the end of the book Isus was almost fully recovered from her Illness and so back at the centre of the family again.

The Journey that Rachav goes on, after getting her twin sister to attend the temple to become a priestess instead of her (her punishment from the King for drinking the temples sacred wine and causing the death of one of the priestess’s), to find her friend Nuzzi to stop him selling his goats to buy her freedom from the temple for her is really interesting. And I loved the way that it became even more interesting from the moment Salma (a feminine given name derived from the Aramaic/Syriac word “shalmana” meaning “peaceful, righteous, honest”) found her unconcious on a rocky outcrop having been attacked by vultures.

All in all this book was amazing especially for a debut novel and the first book in a series, and I would not hesitate to read it again. So as you can probably imagine I can not wait for the next book and would not hesitate to recommend it to other people.

Q&A with Vanessa Morton
As part of research for “Moonfall,” you actually visited the ancient city of Jericho. What was that like?
No high-rises or industrial compounds mar the surrounding landscape today, which gives the sense that little has changed over the millennia. Inside the city fortifications, archaeologists have exposed structural walls that would have been coated with smooth plaster and a wash of bright colors.
It was easy to imagine my characters partying by torchlight, while musicians entertained with throaty flutes, pounding drums, and hand-plucked strings. The experience was surreal.

What fascinates you most about the Late Bronze Age?
Sky gods were highly revered, especially the moon god, whose appearance marked the arrival of cooler temperatures each evening. Celestial phenomena regulated even the most mundane activities, for example, digging up certain flowers was only done after sunset.

Do you have to know a lot about history to enjoy reading “Moonfall?”
Open the book armed only with a desire to be entertained. My teen daughters were my initial audience, so Moonfall’s primary focus is on the lives and adventures of two 16-year-old twins who can’t seem to stay out of trouble. As an added perk, Moonfall will immerse you in the exotic culture of
the ancient near east.

In what ways will modern teens relate to sisters Rachav and Zaron?
Regardless of the era or realm, teens face many of the same issues and have similar concerns, for example: am I attractive; can I trust my friends or even my family; or why should I comply with rules that make no sense? Some feelings are hard-wired into our nature: jealousy, loyalty, and the
longing to love and be loved. Then as now, the transition into adulthood is at times awkward, emotional, and downright exhilarating.

What will surprise readers the most about “Moonfall?”
The characters’ resistance to conformance, how they handle the pain of betrayal, and their determination to carve their own path in an adult world, all played out in a mystical realm, where supernatural forces are not only accepted, but expected.

As a world traveler who visits archeological sites, where is the most interesting historical place you’ve explored?
I am intrigued by the enigmatic aura of Jericho, but I also admire the ingenuity of Roman fort construction along Hadrian’s wall in Britain and the haughty desolation of the Mayan pyramids near Cancun. Even newer sites, such as the settlement at Jamestown or the medieval castles of Europe, are
fascinating. It’s impossible to pick only one!

The end of “Moonfall” leaves readers wanting more. Are you working on a follow-up to the story?
Moonfall is the first installment of the “Tales from the Levant” series, and the second book will be coming in 2015. Readers will be happy to see one of their favorite Moonfall characters return for an exciting new role.

REVUEW
I received this book from the Author via Bostick Communications in exchange for an honest review, so thank you so much for allowing me to review this amazingly evocative book.
First of all i’d like to say that the books cover is beautiful and gives an insight into what the story is going to be about. Then once you start reading the writing and descriptions are so clear and concise you can almost feel what each of the characters is feeling and I loved the fact that the story was told from multiple perspectives: Mariyum, Faisel, Murad (rich landlord) & Rubab (Mariyum’s Sister).
The book tells the story of a young Pakistani girls life in a disgraced family of only girls with an alcoholic abusive father. it tells of her falling in love with her childhood friend Faisel who she eventually runs away with to Lahore and the fact that her father basically sells her to the local landlords son as a way of getting some money. The thread running through out it is her desire to better herself through education in order to get a good job so she can provide for her family.
The way the author describes things that happen in the book, especially the severe beatings the main character is  to at the hands of her father, makes you feel like your experiencing them yourself. In fact when Danny was describing the beatings that Maiyum got from her father I could almost every strike of the Caine, every punch, kick etc.
This book will be in my top 20 books for this year therefore I will both recommend it to other people when asked for a book recommendation and purchase it as a gift for people as well. In fact I loved this book so Much that I am sure Danny is going to very quickly going to become one of my favourite authors so much so that i can’t wait to read his other books including The Evil In The Ice (one I have received for review).

REVIEW

I read this short story via book shout and loved it which why I gave it 5 stars.

it is a story of a young woman who’s lost her job & split with her boyfriend who’s betrayed her by sleeping with her ex best friend, so has returned to the family holiday home to live with her mother.

I found it to be a page turner which I finished in about an hour and a half thanks to the authors fantastic writing, character and plot development.

The main character meets the love interest when she’s walking her mothers dog in the local park after his grandmothers dog attacks it. She isn’t looking for another relationship because she’s still not over her ex but she can’t help starting to have feelings for him when she sees how gentle and caring not to say drop dead gorgeous he is. 

The developing love story is nearly halted when she thinks he is a killer as a result of going in to one of the bedrooms and finding a dead body in the bed with medical instruments next to it, when she goes to pick him up for their date, but he manages to put her mind at rest.

Book Review: Nearly Mended (no 2 Nearly) by Devon Ashley

First of all thank you to Devon for allowing me to read and review this book. I gave it a 5 stars out of five because it was a fantastic continuation to what I am sure will be a grate series.

I loved this book because it was interesting to see the changes that Megan made to her life with Nick in order to get over what had happened to her when she was taken. Then how she changed her tack when Zander took her again from fighting against her situation to being totally compliant especially when she found that Zander had got Nick.

It was also interesting to see how Nick dealt with what happened to him as well as the changes that happened to Zander from being a mean, nasty bully to being a kind, gentle almost loving person.

When they escaped from Zander’s clutches and went to the police to report everything that had happened to them it was obvious that they were going to be in some kind of police protection for the rest of their lives so they couldn’t be taken again.

I can’t wait to see how the story develops more in the next book.

When Megan was taken again and Zander took her to a “party” which ended up being an auction and where she was violently raped by the houses owner who also was the person who was doing the laser treatments to correct her burn and cut scares. It was shocking to find out that all the time they believed they were safe and no where near Zander, he was not only just down the road from them but he also knew exactly what was happening in their lives because he had had a tracking device implanted in her.

I also liked the fact that Megan had a scare that she was pregnant because she hadn’t had a period for several months but she wasn’t then when Zander took her again she found out why she hadn’t had a period for a while when he told her that he’d made sure she had wouldn’t have a period by giving her a contraceptive jab

I have loved both of the books I have read in this series so far, on my kindle, that I fully intend to but the actual books eventually as well.
