"another sizzling tale from red-hot Knight"
Angela Knight has one original series going - witches,
vampires and the children of Camelot. Though Master of the
Moon is a stand alone title, you really will enjoy this
even more if you have read Hot Blooded (a novella
entitled "Seduction's Gift" kicks the series off), followed
by Master of the Night. Knight has a very original,
inventive tale. She takes old lore of Witches, Vampires,
Faeries, Werewolves and mixes in Merlin, Arthur and the
Gang, and creates something very fresh. It's hard to
recall, it's only been a year since she made her mainstream
book debut with Jane's Warlord!! Already, she is a force in
red-hot romance! Her tales are strongly written, well-
conceived and she boldly goes where no writers have gone
before, and does it with such panache!
In this tale, you will meet characters you have touched
upon in Master of the Night. You will already know about
Llyr, the King of the Faeries. Llyr and his very evil
brother. Llyr riles one branch of the Fae - the Cachamwri.
His Nasty brother Ansgar rules the Morven Fae. The brothers
were cursed by daddy dearest on his death bed with a wish
they cannot kill the other. Well, being a nasty sort,
Ansgar has gotten around this by killing the wives and
children of Llyr. In this battle to save the Fae, Llyr is
seeking an alliance with the Camelot vampires and witches.
Meanwhile back in the "normal" (lol) earth in present day,
you meet Diana London. She is a police officer in
Verdaville, South Carolina. Only, she is not too normal
either. She is a shapeshifter - a werewolf. Diana is of the
Dire Kind, a magical race conjured by Merlin as sort of
a "police" to keep the vampires and faeries in line. This
makes her a great asset to Llyr in his struggle to save
everyone from Ansgar's evil intent.
Heads up, Angela Knight pushes the limited of everyday
romance over into the romance-erotica blend called
romantica. So if you don't like blistering hot sex, and
lots of it, then you and great aunt Tilly should give this
one a pass. Sorry, Ms. Knight makes no apologies. If you
don't like this sort of level of intensity, then go find a
kinder, gentler romance writer. Hey, there is room for all
tastes in the Romance Market. However, if you like your
romance on the red-hot fiery side, but really want
something more than erotica, you want a full-bodied tell
that is fascinating, riveting, and so very original, then
get all three Hot Blooded, Master of the Night and Master
of the Moon. If you have read the first two works, then you
won't want to miss this next in the series.
Knight is a one-woman force. Powerful writing leaving you
singed and waiting for "Masters".
