Book Critique - The Moon Witch / Blood on the Moon / West of the Moon

For reviews of other books in this anthology: Go here

Here are the reviews of the remaining three novellas in the anthology Moon Shadows.

The Moon Witch Review:

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: Anthology filled with magic and romance along with the fitting moon element making Jill's story a much pleasure one to read.

The Moon Witch is the second novella in the October 2004 anthology Moon Shadows written by Jill Gregory. The novella is a collaboration between four authors - Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan and Marianne Willman - with tales filled with moon, magic and love. 

Princess Gwynna of Callemore sets out an unusual and difficult journey into the Valley of Org to bring back her sister. However she seeks out Duke Keir of Blackthorne Keep, for he was the only one who had come out of the Valley of Org alive. But Keir does not want to do anything with Gwynna or her quest or the Valley of Org. Will Gwynna convince Keir enough so he can guide her? Will Keir succumb to her quest and follow? Will she bring her sister back?

Another 93 page novella filled with magic and romance along with moon element to keep with the theme of the book. Interestingly enough Jill Gregory is noted for her western historical romance. However here she has a novella filled with romance but with magic that is contrary to her other stories. 

Flair of writing and strong characters has made this story by Jill very interesting. For those who want easy reads, this is a good start.

Book Critique - Wolf Moon

For reviews of other books in this anthology: Go here

Stars: 4 / 5

Recommendation: A novella filled with magic, romance and mystery with the typical Nora Roberts' writing flair that will entertain the reader thoroughly.

Wolf Moon is the first novella in the October 2004 anthology Moon Shadows written by Nora Roberts. The novella is a collaboration between four authors - Nora Roberts, Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan and Marianne Willman - with tales filled with moon, magic and love. 

As I was reading the 2001 novella Midnight Serenade by Ronda Thompson (Review here), it reminded me of Wolf Moon by Nora Roberts. As I mentioned in the review of that book I did pick up this anthology as well, couldn’t resist it once I remembered it. Thus my reviews of the four novellas follows beginning with Wolf Moon by Nora Roberts. 

Eighteen years ago on a solo camping trip, Simone, gets attacked by a wolf turning her life into a cruel curse. Now she meets Dr. Gabe Kirby, the local vet, in the remote town in Maine, with whom she wants to have more with. Risking all will she confide in Gabe about what happened? Will Gabe accept her and aid her? Where will this latest hitch take the turn for Simone?
