Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the second volume in Jones's paranormal Fyne sisters trilogy (after The Sun Witch), middle sister Juliet learns to embrace her magical powers and attempts to break a curse that has shadowed her family for generations-a curse that dictates that any man they love will die by the age of 30. Eldest sister Isadora learned this the hard way when her husband died, and Sophie, the youngest, currently dreads the approach of her husband's 30th birthday. Brittle and reserved Juliet's recurrent nightmares of violent sexual encounters, meanwhile, have only reinforced her impulse to avoid men. But soon after the emperor's men kidnap Juliet, a man named Ryn steals her away from her abductors, claiming she is his intended wife. Initially horrified, especially after she learns that Ryn shape-shifts when the moon is full, Juliet soon comes to lust after and love this wild wolf/man. Though her transformation from quiet "seer" to queen of a unique group of beings will enthrall readers, the heavy focus on plot keeps Juliet a distanced and undeveloped heroine emotionally. Overall, this lushly imaginative novel suffers from too broad a focus, offering only cursory coverage of even the most climactic events in the lives of each sister. Agent, Richard Curtis.

    I loved it.

    This book better explains the three characters. I like the first, but I now feel like I know the Fyne sisters better. I like the storyline. Yes it does jump scenes, but what movie or television show doesn't. I do not know what the first reviewer is complaining about. I loved it. Cannot wait for the Star Witch book to come out. I really liked the ending, so typical of what a man would say.

    The moon witch

    Very entertaining main characters and the characters that revolve around them are interesting too. Book 1(the sun witch) was very good and book 2(the moon witch) was awesome. Cant wait to start book 3(the star witch).

    A reviewer

    I loved the Sun Witch but was a bit disappointed by the second installment in the series. Only a bit! The book is still good to continue on the story so don't be totally misguided by my disappointment of expectations of this second book. A good read but make it a quick one, the third book is better yet.

    Good fast read

    I work at a Barnes and Noble and stumbled upon this while shelving, and was intrigued. I thought it looked 'cute' but wasn't sure if it would be any good. I was pleasantly suprised to find that I really liked the whole series. I think it was well written, with good characters, and descriptions(none of which were too long and drawn out)and I thought the author did a nice job of showing the differences between the three sisters. Good to read on a rainy day or a trip to the beach.

    Engrossing Tale

    Enjoyable tale of a young woman coming to grips with her fears and learning that love is worth all the uncertainty. While the pacing of the story is uneven, I found the tale to be engrossing and the characters appealing. I have not read the first of the series, The Sun Witch, but was able to gather enough information to understand the progression for the sisters. I took forward to the last installement, The Star Witch, due in December.

    Moon Witch

    After focusing on the eldest sister, Sophie in the Sun Witch, the middle daughter takes center stage in Moon Witch when the young seeress is kidnapped by the Emperor's agents. Her rescue comes from a mysterious man, Ryn, who declares her his wife. Not only is Ryn a stranger, but he has a secret that will horrify Juliet. Yet, their destinies are linked together, and she must overcome her horror of not only him, but herself to embrace that role and become what Ryn's people and her own need. While Moon Witch makes some interesting twists in standardized legends that recall the Cheysuli books by Jennifer Roberson, the plot has a scattered, jumpy quality............................................ The scenes that take place in the Emperor's palace weigh down and cheapen the story as well with the lewd descriptions of rather Babylonian lifestyles practiced by the royal court. If you have nothing better to read, then perhaps you'd enjoy this.

    enjoyable romantic fantasy

    In Colubyana, the Fyne witch rejected the wizard making him so angry he cursed the Fyne women so that their love will always die. Over the next three centuries any Fyne witch who married for love watched either their mate die young or ultimately end up hating them. Of the three current generations of Fyne siblings, the oldest Isadore watched her spouse die as he neared his thirtieth birthday. Thus she and her sisters vow to never fall in love until the youngest Sophie breaks the pledge (see THE SUN WITCH) but fears her beloved will die when he turns thirty. --- The middle sibling Juliet sees the curse operate by observing her sisters. She swears to avoid men as she cannot deal with a loved one dying because of her family curse. When the Emperor¿s soldiers abduct her, Ryn recognizes her as the star of his dreams and rescues her from them. He insists they belong together for eternity, but she fears for his life and has doubts anyway about a witch and a shapeshifter like him belonging together even as she falls in love with Ryn. --- The middle Fyne Witch tale is an enjoyable romantic fantasy that grips the audience from the moment Ryn insists she is his intended. The story line is action-packed and fans will commiserate with Juliet¿s reticence, but fails to go deep into her emotional baggage so that newcomers will not fully grasp what makes her tick. Still this is a fun novel as Ryn tries to persuade Juliet, whose whole existence has been that love means young death, that their love can conquer the curse.--- Harriet Klausner
