Flame Moon (A Flame Moon Novel Book 1) Kindle Edition
Join the steamy adventure in this best-selling paranormal romance!
Skye Walters thought waking up on the side of a river with no memory was her biggest problem. She had no idea that the man who had saved her from drowning, the man she now depended on, Aiden, was more than mere mortal. A warrior of ancient.
No memory, nowhere to go, Skye stays in the mountain town, only to discover she herself, has unexplained powers. Her life, her destiny, are soon out of her control, as are her feelings for Aiden. The deeper Skye gets sucked into Aiden’s hidden world, the more the past, and who she really is, threatens her future, her love, her sanity.
The Flame Moon series is intended for mature audiences. There is violence, sexual situations, and language that isn't so polite.

The romance was a nope. Ditto for the friends and lovers severely wounding each other on purpose out of anger during training. The narrative point-of-view was clunky: maybe eighty percent Skye and twenty from her three new friends, and it wasn’t mixed well. My favorite characters were Rafe (the heroic dog), and friends Triaten and Charlotte. Some elements similar to the 1996 Geena Davis movie The Long Kiss Goodnight. If you like stories as gritty as Flame Moon, you might like Boone Brux’s Bringer and the Bane series, starting with Shield of Fire. Sharon Shinn’s Mystic and Rider remains my go-to fantasy. Flame Moon bought for $0 on Kindle on 10-03-16.
As for the mythological content parts in which this story really does not pull on but just hints on I hope to see answers to the actual past and what led the two warring societies to be where they are in this book.
As for the romance parts, not really in-depth nor erotic, but quick snippets of the verbs and adjectives that deal in that area.
What I recommend this book? Yes. Do I want to continue reading the series? Yes. Am I hoping that the blank areas get filled in? Of course.
Part 1: Memory Loss
Skye wakes up on a river bank next to Aiden. Aiden takes responsibility for her, and we learn the town and the mountainous area is inhabited be Pantheonites (and humans). We learn Skye is also a Pantheonite, hidden from the Pantheon race.
Aiden, Charlotte, and Triaten are friends coming together to protect Skye and they form a friendship through their hardships.
They must also defeat any transgressions set against Skye by the elders of Pantheonites and Malefics. We just don't know how the elders will respond to an unknown descendant of their race.
I'm not going to ruin it, but I don't think K.J. went into enough depth in Skye's background. We get the basic concept, but it only mentions juvie once, and not why she went in. We get she's a drifter, but not really why. Her sister hates her, but doesn't really go in depth other than abandonment issues.
Part 2: Kidnapped
Evan, a Malefic leader(?) Kidnaps and tortures Skye, wanting Skye's powers for themselves. Maiden thinks she betrayed him, and goes into a slump. Charlotte has to rally him up to save Skye.
This part is short, but it's still good. I don't think the bad guys got a good enough comeuppance, but it was decent enough.
Part 3: Recovery
Skye must heal not only the physical damage that happened over the month of torture she experienced, but the mental instability it left. PTSD to put it simply, and her brain is in defense, or left in a state of shock.
Things happen. That's all I can say without ruining anything.
I hate the ending. Not really THAT it happened, but HOW. There was no life-altering alternative for the elders. Not REALLY. I would still recommend it to readers.
The romance aspect was okay. Not overly done but also kind of boring between the main characters. If this story had been fleshed out with more convincing plot aspects, it would definitely be a series I'd want to continue. As it stands, this is as far as I want to read.
Top reviews from other countries
That said, I found the typical dark brooding male, helpless female thing very outdated and Mills and boon. I found the tedious sex scenes to be just unnecessary and standard unimaginative fare, I just ended up skipping those bits and the ending was a complete disappointment therefore. I think those scenes detract from the story and I would be happier being left with some mystery to concentrate on the detail. I recently read a book called 'Daughter of Smoke and Bone', another fantasy fiction where there was a love story running through the adventure, but it was such a relief when all sex scenes were left to the imagination. The writer still managed to convey the power of their relationship without resorting to a few cheap thrills, in fact more so.
Also some of the typos and grammatical errors could do with fixing; 'could of' instead of 'could have' for instance, is a basic schoolboy error. I would give this three and a half stars really as seems a little too much, but 3 seems mean, because the story itself did captivate me from page one.
It was also a little predictable to be honest, and there are obvious comparisons to be made with the Twilight saga, but I still enjoyed the book.
