A sinister magic is sweeping across Nash City...

To Fiona Moon, it’s just another day at work. And some days, well, they’re a helluva lot worse than others. As a member of the elite Black Blade Guard, Fiona is tasked with hunting down the most-dangerous Paranorm criminals. To find out who is kidnapping mages and sucking the life energy from their bodies, she has to work with the one man that embodies everything she despises.

Master Necromancer Ian Barroes, a rich professor of Necromantic Studies, wants only one thing in this world… Fiona.
They each hold secrets that could destroy them, but ones that could also be the key to destroying the evil Voodoo priest, Bokor. They must learn to trust each other and track down Bokor before more innocent lives are lost. When Fiona becomes a target of the evil madman, she is lured into his trap. Now, she and Ian have to fight for survival… and their very souls.

About The Paranorm World-

Two hundred years ago the world was very different. It was an age of technology and prosperity. There were more than 7 billion people on earth. Magic and paranormal beings were relegated to fiction and myth. In the Technological Age Year 2012 the Earth experienced a natural phenomena which we now call the Cataclysm. There was a polar shift in which the earths natural magnetic poles shifted. The polar shift caused a series of natural disasters that changed the landscape of the world.

In the years that followed 2012—Earthquakes, hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, and tsunamis pounded the world leaving devastation and death. Whole cities and even states were leveled by earthquakes and swallowed by the sea. The melting of the polar ice caps caused flooding.

Society collapsed. With major cities being leveled by disasters governments crumbled. Power plants and refineries were destroyed. The basic infrastructure of the country disintegrated. There was no longer any electricity, public water systems no longer worked. Food supplies dwindled as there was no longer enough gasoline for shipping. At first the government tried to keep order with police and military. But as more and more disasters destroyed major cities and even the capital of the United States, the government crumbled. With no government to pay or command them there was no longer an army or even police forces. Riots abounded, destroying as much property as the disasters.

Disasters killed more than half the population in less than a year. Over the next five decades famine, disease, and war killed millions more.

Humanities only chance for survival was reliant on those who had long ago become outcasts and myths. Humans who through natural evolution, genetics, or viruses had preternatural abilities.

In the ruins of the old civilization, a new one rose up. One that blends technology and magic. One where paranormal beings like mages, vampires and werebeasts live side by side with normal humans.

If it can be dreamed up...it may be in one of her worlds. Some of her work may be a little sweet and fantastical, while some (The Paranorm World series for example) is a little edgy and spicy.

Voodoo Moon is a wildly entertaining and deeply moving journey of learning that life can only truly be lived in conquering your fear. It is true that you can live a full life while harboring and controlling fear, but to be able to experience the unfettered freedom that comes from overcoming the deeply encased fear that holds you in its grip is a magnificent accomplishment that should be wildly desired and ruthlessly fought for. No one can convince you of this truth until you have finally reached this pinnacle in your life, and once you do, you will want to scream it from the highest mountain to all that will choose to listen to you. Freedom is enticing and beautiful, but it is a choice that we all have to make on our own. Fiona Moon is a member of the Blade. Those who try to go up against her are met with painful resistance and dire consequences. She is as deadly as the name of the organization she works for. Her aim is precise, her methods are lethal, and her rating is perfect. In our world, she would be the equivalent of a Special Forces officer with supernatural powers at her disposal. Those who know her either love her dearly or steer clear of her. She has grown into a self-sufficient, hard woman who above all else loves her family with her entire being. After her family, she is completely dedicated to her job. She loves the opportunity she has to help people. Knowing what her life was like growing up, she tries very hard to stop those that would hurt others. The only person who totally throws her off her game and truly gets under her skin is Ian who offers his services to her organization from time to time. He represents a deep hurt from her past that she continues to hide from. Rationally, she knows that he has never hurt her, but it was people like him who helped destroy her mother. Her memory is clear and her heart unforgiving, but Ian is relentless in his pursuit of the connection that he knows they both feel toward each other. Will she destroy him before he has a chance to open her eyes to the truth, or will an unknown threat destroy Fiona first? This was such an amazingly beautiful story that I just couldn’t get enough of!! The characters were out of this world incredible, and the storyline was even better than I hoped for! I really loved that Ian and Fiona had a history together even before the story started. The tension had already been there for a while, and it was only at this point that Ian was ready to move forward even just a tiny bit to see how Fiona would respond. He had already sorted his feeling out about her a long time ago, and it was now her turn to figure out what she wanted. Ian was so patient and gentle with her, and yet he made sure that she knew exactly how he felt and what he wanted from her. Their bickering was hilarious, and it really played well into their already deep feelings for each other. In addition to the wonderful Ian, I fell in love with Fiona’s family. They were a mis-match of strangers who loved each other more than life itself and would gladly lay their life down for the other. While no one in this family was related by blood, the deep bond they held built a family that loved, cherished, and protected each other. Blood doesn’t equal love, and love doesn’t need blood to form a connection that will last a lifetime. I hope to hear more from this beautiful family soon because I hated to see them go. Voodoo Moon was my first book written by June Stevens, and I am totally entranced and captivated by this world that she has meticulously created. The characters and the storyline showcase the off-the-charts talent that Stevens has. Personally, I can’t wait to read more by this author. If you enjoy a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat while pulling your heart in with each captivating word and breathtaking character, then look no further.

Fiona is my kind of woman and this is my kind of book. Stevens gives us a character that is decidedly feminine, yet a worthy warrior who can think. This writer also creates a post apocalyptic middle Tennessee that is fascinating. Atmosphere, action and sex make this a book that you will wish did not end.

Couldn't put it down. Fiona is snarky and Ian is sexy. Loved the way they sniped at each other then nearly set the bedsheets on fire. The bad guy was super creepy. All in all, great read.

Fiona Moon is the best Black Blade Guard in the Nash City/State. Because of this, Master Necromancer Ian Barroes always insists on working with her on cases. Well that, and his intense attraction to her. He really enjoys getting a rise out of her. Voodoo Moon, A Moon Sisters Novel (Paranorm World #1) by June Stevens Westerfield, is a wonderful beginning to a series about the Moon Sisters; sisters by choice, not blood. June has a way of getting you invested in the story immediately. I was sucked in and couldn't put my reader down. The emotions are real, and the characters flawed and likable. Definite 5-star must-read.

Fiona is a member of the Black Blade Guard and they look for paranormal criminals. Now there is someone stealing magic users and taking their life energy. Fiona’s partner on this case is Ian who is the head of the Necromancers Guild and Fiona doesn’t like necromancers. But somehow there is an attraction between Fiona and Ion and it is growing as they work together. Fiona fights for the underdogs and has a tendency to win. Fiona loves her family and they come first and then her job came next. Fiona tries to resist Ian as someone like him had helped to destroy her mom. There were vampires, werewolves, shifters, mages, and all kinds of paranormals and they lived right next to humans. The world had basically been restored and the beings were slowly rebuilding their world. I really liked this story , it had so much to it. The plot was absolutely great . The story was a little slow at first but then it picked up and WOW. Definitely a different style of writing but I loved it. I loved all the paranormal characters. I also loved the ins and outs Fiona and Ian went through especially since they already had some feelings involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

June Stevens introduces us to a new world; a world set after a Cataclysm caused by a shift of the magnetic poles. Natural disasters followed, destroying a good portion of the world. From the ruins of the old world arose a new one where weres, vampires and mages lives side by side with humans. Fiona Moon is one of those mages. An incredible young lady, she is a member of the elite Black Blade Guard. Fiona hunts down only the most dangerous paranorm criminals. Now she has been assigned to a new case where mages are being kidnapped. When found, their life energy has been completely sucked out of them. Fiona has no choice but to work with Master Necromancer, Ian Barroes. Ian is delighted as he wants only one person in his life and that is Fiona. Both of them have secrets and as they track down Bokor, a danger Voodoo priest, it is those secrets that could save their world. When Fiona is targeted and captured by Bokor, they will need to reveal and use those secrets. I really enjoyed this new world that June Stevens created. It contains many different genres combined into one beautiful package. Our world as we know it has been destroyed but from that destruction rises a new world that is filled with magic, vampires, and weres. It is a world where crystals help with many things. However, there are some things that remain, the sense of family, including one that does not need blood relationships to exist, just love. And love is another thing that remains. It never dies. I loved exploring this new world and look forward to reading the next book. I highly recommend this book.

This was a great read. I enjoyed that this couples story finished at the end of the book and that the series picks up with the sister. I'm getting a little burned out on trilogies all about one couple or triangles..lol Guess I should add hallelujah there IS no love triangle in this book..will most likely be purchasing the next book in the series

I would have given this book a three star rating but for the lack of editing/proof-reading skills and the obviously misleading five star rating posted by two previous "readers". The book was entertaining enough and I especially appreciate a fantasy/fiction story that wasn't written about or for high-schoolers but unfortunately reads as if it were written by someone who slept through high school English class. This was a very tedious read, made so by the following: had to fill in too many blanks where words were missing; using wrong words entirely (scene/seen, through/threw, etc.); confusion created by character name changing or appearing from nowhere (Daniels, Danielson, Davidson); changing from first person to third person narration in one sentence; changing tense and using punctuation (especially commas) indiscriminately; and so on. I would encourage the author to continue on sharing and developing her talent but do that talent and the readers justice by presenting it in the best possible light. Hire a reputable editor or at the very least let a local high school English teacher proof-read your work! Good luck.
