About the Author

Moira Katson writes Fantasy and Science Fiction novels. Born and raised in the farmland of the eastern United States, she is now a transplant living in the oft-frigid wastes of the midwest, where she is learning to love hot dish, fried food on a stick, ice fishing, and the hilarious faces her friends make when she tells them about winter temperatures. Despite the fact that she had been writing since childhood, Moira majored in nice, sensible subjects in college and went on to have a nice, sensible job, all the while continuing to write about dragons, courts, and spaceships. She has since bowed to the inevitable and begun releasing her work into the world! Her first novel, Mahalia, was released in 2012, and her latest series, the Light & Shadow Trilogy, was published in April 2013. To find out more about Moira and her upcoming works, visit her website, http://moirakatson.com, or find her on Facebook or twitter, @moirakatson!

I purchased the Kindle edition of this trilogy, and it was money well spent. The story is well written, and the characters really pull you in. The story is a balance of love, political intrigue and action, and keeps the reader guessing as to how events will unfold all the way to the end. The character development plays nicely into the plot, allowing the reader to guess at each character's motivations, while not being given vital information before it is needed to inform the plot. All the intrigue and deception builds to an exciting climax, and when I finished the final page I felt satisfied that everything had been appropriately wrapped up, but a little sad that there wasn't more to read. I look forward to seeing if these characters return again, but until then I highly recommend this series.

I dont really know how to begin to describe this trilogy, except to say it was incredible !! It is not your typical romance fluff. It has everything in it, romance, intrigue, betrayal, suffering and it draws you so deep in you forget that you are reading a book !! It is not my usual type of book (horror) but I downloaded the 1st one, and when I was done, went looking at the authors site to see if there was more to read on it. I saw a contest for the trilogy, and was shocked to find out I had won. This review has nothing to do with that. I was just about to buy them when I found out I won. I would willing pay for this set, as it is worth more than the price. I am left feeling numb as I am slowly returning to this world after finishing it. It has twists and turns that you would never guess ! I am usually good at figuring out where the story is going, but not with this one. Shockingly different twists than expected. I cannot do justice to this book in trying to tell what it is about, more than to say it is like a historical novel, it draws you into its world of kingdoms, court intrigues, plotting and political infighting, etc. You just need to read it and experience it !!

This trilogy was so compelling that I read the three books back to back. The plot twists were mostly unforeseen and, like Catwin, I did not see her final betrayal coming. Miriele and Catwin mature into young women forged in the fires of tragedy. And if one wonders that the fate of a country might hinge on their shoulders, one only has to remember the boy kings of the Medieval era and the young women they courted.

love these books! ! they are so good! I just finished the shadow & light trilogy. two words......"MUST READ!! " you will love the characters & the storyline! the @nly problem is I want the story to continue. I want to know what happens to those characters! I am truly invested as anyone will be that reads the first book. I read alot (lots & lots :)) so I am very appreciative when a writer like Ms. katson comes along. she knows how to write. she understands the nuance of story telling & keeping us invested. she's especially good at those cliff hangers at the end, sometimes suttle & other times it's big. no matter which it is, you only want more! I love it! ! my housework suffers but I personally am a happy camper. (housework is always there so no worries. lol) thank you Ms katson for your talent. your stories are truly awesome! all I have to say is "keep them coming!" I'd also like to personally thank you for your decision on reasonable pricing for kindle books. I am on a very limited budget & reading is my escape or in fact, my coping mechanism for pain. so you actually help me personally in two ways, financially & emotionally. THANK YOU!
again, anyone browsing reviews, "The Shadow & Light" books awesome & a "must read "! I promise you won't be disappointed. :)

The female characters in this author's books are refreshingly strong while remaining emotionally complex. Ms. Katson creates a unique world unlike any you've read about before. I highly recommend the Light & Shadow Trilogy. With the e-book versions available for quick download, it's the perfect way to pass some time on a chilly fall afternoon.

When I had read the first book in this series called Shadowborn, I had read it as part of a free promotion on amazon. I fell in love with the story and I just had to get the next two books, so I did. Moira Katson is a wonderful author to definitely keep a watch on. Her characters are wonderfully portrayed and it's a fantasy series that is both character driven and has an excellent plot line.
In the first book, Catwin, an orphan girl raised by a town healer gets swept away by court intrigue when she is chosen to be a shadow - assassin if you will. She gets trained as a shadow to Miriel DeVere. You can say they both hate each other at first. And apparently, it is Catwin's destiny to be betrayed by someone. The person who betrayed her, and you don't see this until the third book, shocked me and normally, I can pinpoint exactly what happens in novels.
This is a fresh new breath in the fantasy pool and there isn't even a hint of magic and sorcery in it. It's so realistic I felt drawn to the characters and empathized with Catwin and Miriel. Even the supporting characters felt real. I would recommend this trilogy to go on any reader's shelf. I'd love to see more books from Moira Katson in the near future.
