5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read!, December 13, 2012
By Amy McClung "twirlcakes" (nashville tenn)
This review is from: Pyramid of the Moon (sun and moon trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
I was given the opportunity to receive an advance copy of this book from the author to read and give an honest review. Honestly, I have to say...this book is fantastic! The very first chapter reeled me in with curiosity. The author is very detailed in her words, she creates a virtual movie in your mind with the description of each aspect of the story right down to the clothes the characters are wearing. One scene was so descriptive, I had to put the book down for a moment to recover from the creep factor of it! The characters are well developed, yet have an air of mystery about them. You can feel Eva's emotions as she burns with desire for her love, the heat between the two is immense! Colton makes you swoon and jump for joy any time he is involved in a scene. Baret's snarky comments are comic relief. Both men are wonderfully written and sound like the perfect set of male companions for any girl to have in their life. The story gives you enough background to peak your interest, but still leaves questions unanswered that make you anxious for the next book. The ending had me searching my Kindle for the rest of the book because I wanted to know what was going to happen next! My only complaint, it ended too soon, I want more! Looking forward to Book 2 of this series!

I thought this was a great story, I got pulled in right away and can't wait to see where it goes from here. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the quick paced young adult fantasy novel.



5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark and Beautiful Book that will keep you guessing!, December 4, 2012
By Ruthanne Kight "Ruthi K." (Columbia, SC) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Pyramid of the Moon (sun and moon trilogy) (Kindle Edition)
This is one of those books that can make or break your resolve to sleep. It is extremely well written and intelligent! That's the difference between this novel and some others that I have run across. This one has the action, of course, but the intelligence of the characters, and the author, is evident when you crack the book open.
Eva's life has taken a turn for the...well...the crazy. Everything changes so quickly for her, especially when she begins to feel this undeniable connection with super hottie Colton. There's also his brother, but that's more a brother/sister thing going on. Eva finds out that she has the Moon Goddess within her. Literally.
Now, I refuse, REFUSE!, to give away too many details. There's no way that I can sum up this book in such a short time. For now, just know this: the mythology, lore, and back story that is expertly weaved within these pages will keep you strapped to your seat. If you are a fan of action, a wee bit of romance, and some truly evil people, well...this is the book for you. As I said, EXCELLENT book! This is one of those that you seriously don't want to miss out on.
From the moment that I began reading this book I was utterly speechless. There is that air of mystery and intrigue that readers love, but there was something else; something more. This is not one of those cookie cutter books that have the tried and true love triangle and angst filled teen girl. This is a mature book written by a woman who really knows how to spin a tale. There is no other way to say it but this is one of those books that will stay in your head until it drives you mad waiting for the next one!
I love the mythology that surrounds the story and the detail in which the author brings to life a world that is so close to our own, and yet different. The female protagonist, Eva, is head strong and vibrant, never dull and annoying. There is no comparison to other books in this genre. Her male leads are opposite of each other and yet compliment each other extremely well. The cast of characters work well together and help the story progress throughout the book.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, simply because of the unique story line and different plot lines. Also, the wording isn't lessened just to draw in other readers. There is an air of intelligence within this book that you won't find in a lot of YA books. You're doing yourself a favor by picking this one up! I'm sure you'll love it as much as I did!
(This book was given to me for an honest review)
