"The Second in a Well-Woven Witch Trilogy!"
The Moon Witch opens up where the Sun Witch left off,
for which I am so grateful as I was so excited to dive
the second book in this trilogy. Sophie Fyne, Kane and
their baby daughter Ariana are on the run and have joined
up with the rebel forces to unseat the emperor. While
emperor Sebestyen has discovered there are two more
who are also witches up on Fyne Mountain and has sent his
troops to bring them to him.
In the process of capturing Isadora, one of the
is rendered dead with just the touch of her hand and a few
simple words. Terrified to approach the dark witch, the
soldiers finally subdue her and bind her hands. Juliet
however does not resist. She is distressed enough to know
she did not foresee this, but now that it is upon them she
knows her home will be destroyed and to resist would be
For some days the soldiers lead the women down the
mountain. Their progress seems to be moving right along
until one night when chaos breaks out. Ryn, an Anwyn,
meaning a large man who runs as a wolf during the full
moon, takes Juliet and runs with her. He heads up the
mountains with her tossed over his shoulders, determined
put as much distance as possible between he and the
Meanwhile, Isadora runs the other way hoping to elude
the soldiers. She is successful for many days, until her
luck runs out. Again under their control she is bound and
bag is thrown over her head as she is taken to the emperor
and her new fate.
So while Isadora resigns herself to the loss of her
and sisters, Juliet struggles to find a way to escape from
this crazy Anwyn man that insists she is his wife.
Unfortunately, the Anwyn are very single minded and
stubborn when it comes to finding their one and only
wife/mate. And no matter how much Juliet tries to talk
sense into him he will not listen.
Eventually Juliet decides to stop fighting Ryn on this
and acquiesces, for this is the first time she has been
able to spend time with another person and not be
telepathically linked or drained. And the closer she gets
to Ryn and the Anwyn city, the more alive and powerful she
feels. This has Ryn concerned to some degree as he notices
the changes and wonders if she is the one his people
prophecy to be their next Queen. And if this is true, then
he may lose his one and only mate.
Ms. Jones has done it again! The Moon Witch is sure to
satisfy readers on many levels whether it is romance,
adventure or the paranormal. This book reaches the same
caliber The Sun Witch began, and then takes it up another
notch by unfolding the story even further. As one answer
becomes clear another fascinating opportunity and question
arises. Definitely, another winner of a read that is
me VERY eager for the final book which, is Isadora's story
and comes out in January 2006.
