Raf Jel Jater searches the mountains for the slaver Devros when he comes across a naked unconscious Dale and saves her life. When she awakens, she realizes that she is no longer on earth but on a world much like medieval Europe. Raf pretends to be a slaver so he can locate Devros and put an end to his crimes that threaten to plunge the country into war. Dale is frantic to find the crystal that Raf hides from her because she has to go home to her daughter Thea who needs her for a kidney transplant. Thea uses the remaining crystal to transport herself to the world her mother is in and finds some allies that guide her in this strange land. As Thea struggles to reach her mother, Dale realizes she loves Raf but knows she and Thea must return for the life-saving operation.
Elysa Hendricks is a first class fantasist who builds incredible worlds and creates alien species that seem believable. Readers will adore the Shakar, a feline humanoid species who lack mankind's ruthlessness. They adopt Thea in a special magical bonding ceremony. Raf and Dale are warriors, willing to fight for a cause. Fans will root for them to find a way to be together if he survives his battle with Devros. SHADOW MOON is an enchanting romantic fantasy that readers will put on their keeper shelf.
The heroine Sianna is one of those pure of heart healer types whose goodness is demonstrated in her every action which leads to winning people over. She has to maintain a lie to her captors that she is her sister in order to preserve her and her sister's life; this is a cause of tension in the novel when they believe her to be a murderer and want to treat her as such. The love between Sianna and Kyne is poignant because she has never had anybody love her and Kyne is disgusted with his attraction to his enemy. It makes for some very frustrating moments as well as some bittersweet ones. However, through Sianna's emphatic abilities readers will understand the motivations behind their actions and feelings. There are one or two moments of cheesiness that comes into play but one has to just accept it. In one scene, Kyne doesn't know how to do something and so Sianna says, "Believe." Yep, I had to make a huge eye roll at that.
Still, this book has its merits. Usually books of this sort are either heavy on the plot and light on the romance or heavy romance but no plot. Crystal moon is well-balanced in that arena with a fully fleshed out plot and a romance that grows believably.
There is a nice balance between romance, action and fantasy. It's a real page turner that'll keep you up all night.
Elysa Hendricks is an author to read!
