Ms. Iyer, one of my favorite writers, continues to write layered, compelling stories filled with colorful characters and twists that keep you guessing until the end. There are scenes in Goddess of the Moon where I literally held my breath. When Diana Racine, the psychic from Mind Games, and her lover New Orleans police detective Ernie Lucier are drawn into a baby kidnapping case, they run into a fascinating group of people. The characters are developed with skill and heart; they made me care. But nothing is as it appears, and Ernie wonders if they view Diana as entertainment or a goal.
If you enjoy edge-of-your-seat suspense and a richly detailed plot, you'll love this book. I did.

I just finished the latest novelGODDESS OF THE MOON (A Diana Racine Psychic Suspense) . The first book with Diana was [ASIN:1475294662 Mind Games (Volume 1)]] They are both great! If you love suspense, well written with compelling characters, you must read these two books! I love novels about psychics helping the police and using their 'gift' for good, and Ms. Iyer does not disappoint. The suspense nearly killed me, but I survived! You will love these books. Note: Read Mind Games first!

I picked this up thinking I liked the setting and the premise of the book, and while it was entertaining, there were just a few things I could not overlook. Why the heck would Diana allow herself to get drugged the first time, and then, knowing the nasty things that were done to her while she was drugged, she put herself into a position, along with her cop BF, to let it happen again? You don't have to be psychic to know that is coming. I know, it had to happen so they could end up at the ranch, but I just didn't find it plausible.

As I said, I enjoyed it, just didn't love it.

Polly Iyer does wonders with an unusal topic. Even if you can guess part of the ending, the rest will surprise you.

Let me say that I would rate this a 3-1/2 if I had that choice.

WARNING: If you do not like sexual content in your books this is not the book for you. There is a little swearing as well.

I read the first book in this series & gave it a 3 as well. To me there is too much extra content that doesn't really do anything for the story. It just makes it a little tedious because you want to get to the end to find out what happens.

I don't know what it is but I am just not so crazy about Diane. She is interesting but does some things that make her seem not too bright. I don't want to give anything away but at the final "dinner" it shocks me that they didn't think about the glasses. Even I knew what was going to happen & this cop is a well-educated man. I know that something had to happen to get them where they needed to end up but I thought it wasn't surprising and it kind of ruined it for me.

I also dislike very much the fact that you have to read why Diane feels so hot for her cop (nor do I care about the details of their sexual escapades). We know that - we don't have to be told. I guess I should say at this point that I don't really care for a "love" story thrown in with my mysteries. Obviously, there is almost always a love interest but I just don't like so much repetitive reasons why they love each other so much (in a period of a week). It can be done well but very few authors do it right.

Overall, it is a good read but perhaps not a series that I HAVE to read right away. Normally I will purchase all the books in the series but with this one I will not do that until I run out of other material. One thing, at least, is that there aren't a million spelling errors. Obviously other people think that this book is the bomb so take my review with a grain of salt. I wish I could have give it a higher mark but for my taste I just couldn't do it. Sorry to the author;)

NOTE: I am reading another book by this author "Murder Deja Vu" right now which I am liking a bit more. The only thing that bothers me again is the constant way the author tells you that this person is kissing, hugging and blah blah blah. It just seems soooooo unrealistic. Believe me we are smart enough to know that Frank found the woman of his dreams as well as Reece. Oh well......

I really liked the first Diane Racine novel. Nice characters, swift moving, a twist using a psychic as the main character.
This second novel adds nothing to the character; in fact it is almost the same story! Same formula, same result as the first.
Protagonist gets kidnapped, hunky detective boyfriend feels guilty for not finding her fast enough.....etc.
I like Iver's writing well enough but am probably done with this series and it is too bad because there was a lot of potential.

This was so heavily based on a book by Clive Cussler that I couldn't get into it because the Cussler story was better. This one went into more detail, but Cussler is such an able writer that any other story in the same line suffers by comparison. Well written and all that, definitely check it out, but if you've read Cussler, you'll recognize the story.

A Utopian Society along with diabolical characters makes good reading. Polly Iyer is masterful at creating the right mix of suspense and pace. Her love scenes are steamy and add to the plot. I would not hesitate to read another novel by Iyer.

As if the steamy back streets of New Orleans weren't enough to carry me away, the mythical gods themselves beckoned me to follow police Lieutenant Ernie Lucier and his love, psychic Diana Raines as they track down an elite Satanic cult suspected in the disappearance of several intellectually superior infants in 4 southern States.
Seedy imagery, homeless shelters on forgotten back ways and old style southern money. Author Polly Iyers effectively transported me back to "Nawlins", as the locals say, and the pervasive feeling of underlying depravity that is the French Quarter.
Now the cult has targeted Diana labeling her "Goddess of the Moon"!
This book holds every joy a lover of Dark Images craves!
I could not put this book down.

It was good. I read this book in English which is not my mother tongue. My level is not really high but I could understand it easily. I enjoyed reading and I was happy because the topic is okay, in addition my comprehension was acceptable. I really recomend for people who is learning English and their level is high intermediate.
