Overview

A love so alien, it could only be achieved by magic.

When taken by slavers, Moon-Child Carine sees her best chance of survival in the Eagle Warrior who lies dying in the corner of the dirty slave cage. Trained in magic, she uses her Wish-in-Hand to save his life and then bonds with him, despite the fact that Moon-Children and the Tribes of the Eagle are natural enemies.

Ancel, famed Eagle warrior and champion of the tournaments, is furious when he realises what she’s done and vows to resist the pull of the Bonding, even though his honour requires that he repay the gift of his life by protecting her.

Carine promises that if he gets her to safety, she will find a way to release him. But the Wish has chosen well and as time passes Carine realises that their feelings for each other are not just based on magic. She must decide exactly what she’s willing to sacrifice for this man who has come to mean everything to her. Is their love real, or just a madness brought about by the Bonding? And if it is, just what is she prepared to do in order to set him free?

Meet the Author

I live within sight of the Lancashire moors with my family, cats and vast collection of musical instruments. Saturday nights are likely to find me in some spooky mansion or castle indulging in my hobby as a paranormal investigator. I've worked as a teacher and publisher and I now write full time. I love to write romance that's tightly focused on the main characters and their emotional journey.I also write slightly sweeter romance as Alexandra Marell.

    Moon Child's Wish by C.A. Nicks Moon Child Series Book 1 Carine

    Moon Child's Wish by C.A. Nicks
    Moon Child Series Book 1
    Carine is a Moon-Child who was living her serene life in the temple. When she is taken by slave traders her whole existence changes. Especially when her Wish-In-Hand chooses the enemy Eagle Warrior to gift life to. In fear of him killing her she also bonds with him. Carine does the unthinkable to break the bond so that Ancel can be free to go. She now lives with the results of that action.

    Eagle Warrior Ancel, son of Faylar, grandson of Faylar the Bloody is a warrior not a slave. Not only does he lose honor by having to perform in this place of entertainment as a slave, but also enslaved by lust to the Moon-Child. His only desire is to escape, but the bond leaves him no choice but to take Carine with him.

    Some pretty odd characters are in the City of Gold and at the O, where they have been taken captive. A place where the longer you are a slave the more you become complacent to your fate. Where a drug can get you through the night of entertainment, but it always wears off and reminds you of where you are and what you did. The next book is Lupine and it continues Ancel and Carine's story. The third book in the series it Tian's Guardian.

    453 pages

    This was a good read. The two main characters were will developed with clear motivations for the decisions they made. I would definitely purchase her work but was glad to get to try Nicks' writing for free.

    Not so good

    Not such a good book, the story lingered too much on the characters' trials and suffering as slaves, the sexual bonding, and little on developing their relationship. I would have liked them to have escaped sooner and develop their storyline from there, not chop it off after their escape. Also felt confused at times on the jumping from scene to scene ,felt at times like I had skipped pages by mistake. Won't be buying the second book, at least this one was free.
