An equestrienne’s father vanishes on her eighteenth birthday and she thinks she is to blame. There are hints of a specter but no sight of it in the early stages of this spellbinding psychological thriller. It is sophisticated writing, merging our world with another—we begin to see the “world in the clear, like two plays on one stage, and that we have something the other world wants. … It’s a harsh world on the other side of the veil. Lawless, ruthless.” The heroine has “a high ratio of water to earth, and quite a bit of fire.”
Southern flavors paint the pages in this fantastic hero’s journey. Echoes of the Hunger Games and Jungian shadow selves people an ancient world as we are transported to the other side.
Twisty. The plot was twisty. I kept getting hit by first this shock then that shock. I could never quite predict what was happening and I loved it. This was plotting on the level of Brandon Sanderson and I cannot get over the complexity and planning that must have gone into this—just plain awesome.
I’m not sure I can talk about Tanzy without talking about Lucas and I can’t talk about the two of them without rampant fangirling. You should not make the mistake that assuming this story is a romance, it is far more about the adventure, I think. However, my little fangirl heart wants what it wants. I will ship them to the day I die.
For the first time ever, we see into the minds and thoughts of characters besides Tanzy. We get a peek into Jayce, Hope, Lucas, even Vanessa.
There were many twists, as I said, but perhaps the greatest one of all was when I found myself sympathizing with Vanessa. Yes, VANESSA. That was probably the last thing I ever saw coming, seconded only to love-hating Asher by the end. The twist about those two was the last thing I expected and I can do nothing but laud the author for how well she set that up.
A fabulous conclusion to a masterfully written trilogy and when our dear Ms. Jones comes out with her next book, I will fight anyone and everyone for the first spot in line.
I would recommend this story to anyone who belives in magic and horses. I have not read anything close to this story so there is nothing to compare it with. Just have an open mind to anything happening and you will be surprised as I was.
I am excited to be back with familiar characters and saddened at the thought of their story coming to an end. I loved every step I took with them and will not spoil anything for your.
I have loved every gorgeous cover of the magnificent horses.
War makes strange bedfellows and that has been proven to be true here and heroism comes in some of the most surprising packages.
Twists and turns, love and sacrifice, hope and love kept me “turning the pages” of my Kindle. I knew some of what was coming, but was not able to figure out the exact ending.
I am so happy I broke down and purchased the books I needed to finish the trilogy. I would highly recommend the Moonlit trilogy!
This read was wildly (sorry again) refreshing. Though this has the chosen one aspect, I felt it was a new take on it and the plot was something I've never read before.
Honestly, at first I thought it started off a little slow but then found I couldn't put it down. Jones' did a perfect job of letting us get to know the MC and really seeing her grief and how it changed her.
And really I appreciate a book that can give me not just one, but two plot twists I didn't see coming (but made sense, not far reaching out anything).
The story really did keep me on my toes and now all I want to know is where the hell is book two, because I need it now!
