Editorial Reviews

Kathe Robin
Patricia Ryan holds readers in her grasp with mystery and suspense worthy of a Hitchcock film. Once you start this nonstop read you won't go to bed until you've turned the last page. Kudos to Ms. Ryan for bringing such a satisfying tale to life and pushing the boundaries of the genre once more.

    Great book. Author has several more medieval romances like this one also great reads.

    Oddly there are a spate of reviews from 02/13 which all seem to refer to an unrelated book.  What's that about?

    The Rise of EclipseClan- Chapter 4 Part 3

    A tom was sitting in the den, shifting herbs around on the ground. "Hmm… we could use more chervil, and catmint. Yes, definitely catmint, for coughs. Marigold would be nice as well…"
    Mistyflower stepped forward. "Glasseye, I'm here for the borage."
    Glasseye whipped around, obviously not noticing the gray cat's entrance. "O-oh, greetings, Mistyflower." The tom meowed, looking slightly surprised.
    Standing out of sight, Eclipsekit cringed. The medicine cat looked more like an elder than a Clan healer- his blue-silver fur was ruffled with exhaustion, and one of his amber eyes were clouded over, half-blinding him. His right ear was torn to the tip.
    "Greetings," Mistyflower replied, dipping her head as she padded farther into the dimly-lit gorse bush. "How are things?"
    Glasseye frowned. "Not going smoothly at all. Some of the Clan seems to be coming down with whitecough, even though newleaf is coming. I think it may be because of the sudden shortage of prey. We need herbs more than ever before, but with the badgers in our territory, I can't go out often. Imagine if a battle tore out, nearly no herbs at all to fix wounds…" Trailing off, the tom turned back to the depleted herb storage. "Here for borage, you say?" Without waiting for an answer, the tom continued to search for the bright green plant. Eventually, he pulled out a bundle of the herbs. "Here you go."
    "Thank you," Mistyflower meowed, plucking the borage out of her Clanmate's mouth. "Would you like to see my kits?"
    For the first time since the queen had padded in, Glasseye purred. "Of course."
    Mistyflower motioned to the three kits hiding behind her. "Shardkit, Whitekit, Eclipsekit? Step forward!"
    With an inward shudder, Eclipsekit padded out of her mother's shelter before confronting the medicine cat.
    Glasseye froze, his gaze locked on the three small kits. Shutting his eyes, his paw flew to his mangled ear. He then looked back down at the kits. "Y…you said… Shardkit… and Whitekit?"
    Looking confused, Mistyflower nodded. "Y-yes."
    Eclipsekit felt a surge of worry fill her. What did this ugly cat have to do with her two siblings?
    Glasseye staggered back, his one good amber eye widened. "S-S-Shardkit… Whitekit… Clawstar… Nightflower…" The tom retreated to the back of the den, his strong, helpful personality dissolved like sand in a river.
    "We should go," Mistyflower meowed, hastily leading her kits out the medicine cat den. Eclipsekit took a breath of fresh, herb-less air once they were outside. "Told you he was wrong in the head!" The black kit whispered to her tabby brother.
    "No, you didn't!" Shardkit retorted. But the brown tom looked slightly confused and worried as well.
    As they neared the nursery, Clawstar confronted them. "What happened?" He meowed, obviously concerned. "Your kits look worried, Mistyflower. Did you do anything bad to them?" His eyes sparked with worry and anger at the last sentence.
    Mistyflower turned cross. "Of course I didn't, Clawstar. Come aside." They padded away from the trio of kits, while the young cats watched.
    Mistyflower was whispering something to the muscular tom. Eclipsekit strained her ears, trying to hear what the pair was saying, but she caught nothing but her mother saying to Clawstar, "He said something about you and Nightflower."
    Eclipsekit saw a spark of anger flare up in Clawstar's eyes before he turned around, trying to hide it. "I willdeal with it," he growled, padding away to the medicine cat den.

    FULL OF PASSION & SUSPENSE!!!

    SET IN 1172, I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. SO FAR I'VE ENJOYED ALL OF P. RYAN'S BOOKS I'VE READ. THIS ONE IS FULL OF PASSION, MYSTERY & SUSPENSE. IT DOES HAVE YOUR ATTENTION THROUGH OUT THE STORY.

    enjoyable medieval romance

    In 1172 Oxford, an agent of the King's Justiciar, Hugh of Wexford, recruits scholar Phillipa de Paris to help him bring corrupt churchman Aldous Ewing to justice for treacherous activity against the crown. At one time Aldous wooed Phillipa, but failed to gain her affection. <P>Phillipa reluctantly agrees to help the crown even though she fears the dangerous Hugh. They pretend to be married and set off on their quest with Hugh trying to bed his partner and Phillipa internally struggling to reject his efforts. When Aldous sees the 'married' Phillipa, he invites her and her spouse to stay with him, expecting to finally bed the wench. As Phillipa uses her wit and her wiles to uncover a traitor, she and her 'spouse' fall in love, an emotion neither want nor desire. <P>THE SUN AND THE MOON is an enjoyable medieval romance starring two enchanting characters. The intrepid Phillipa is an anachronism as she succeeds in her scholarly pursuit. She and the mentally and physically scarred Hugh make a wonderful couple. The story line is fun especially when Hugh turns jealous as Phillipa flirts with the odious Aldous to get him to reveal his plot. Sub-genre fans know Patricia Ryan as a household name and her newest tale will elate her large horde of readers. <P>Harriet Klausner
