Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Michael Offutt, Author of Slipstream
"I LOVE Witch's Nocturne. Finished it in two lunch breaks at work. E.J. brings alive the best aspects of a paranormal hunter by giving us a character that is equally cool to the well-known Anita Blake that we saw in Laurel K. Hamilton's earlier books, Burnt Offerings and my favorite, Obsidian Butterfly."
Candace's Book Blog - Candace R
"I mentioned this for the previous book, but I want to mention it again, E.J. Wesley is a brilliant writer... somehow he brings us everything we need in a story but in a shorter time frame... if I were to complain about anything I would say that I want more now! I don't want to wait for more of Jenny!"
Missy's Reads & Reviews Blog - Missy B
"The writing is amazing - even in just a few short pages, you can see that right off the bat. It really engages you in the story and keeps you reading along until the end. Jenny, the protagonist, is written amazingly well. She's a tough chick, very passionate and also surprisingly very funny. I loved her attitude and the way that she presented herself."
Books and Things Blog - Aimee K
"I really enjoy the author's writing and I want to read more about Jenny and Marshal. The shortness of the books reminds me of t.v. episodes; short, sweet, resolved in under an hour. But I’m talking good, interesting t.v.. The kind that draws you in and leaves you eagerly awaiting next weeks episode."
Fic Fare Blog - Jaime A
"I think that fans of paranormal, horror and fantasy will definitely enjoy the world that Wesley has written. For a story filled with action and very well done you'll want to pick these short novelettes up. They are definitely different than my normal read and I really found myself enjoying the characters and story that Wesley has created."

    Every bit as good as the first story in this series. Jenny survi

    Every bit as good as the first story in this series.
    Jenny survived her first battle with a monster, but there are more to kill.

    She does have a normal life too, but she’s not very good at it. Always wasting too much money on her energy drink addiction instead of paying bills, she’s never far from having something shut off.

    Her one link to adult responsibility is Marshal, and he never lets her off easy. Marshal was her grandmothers nurse and left him in charge of collecting rent from Jenny when she inherited the house.

    After cruising through life, keeping herself closed off, Jenny has now found her true calling. Thanks to her now dead grandfather, Billy Moonsong, she’s gotten an up close and personal tutorial on their family history and what part she has in it for the future.

    The ancient tribal journal he’d left her was a how to of monster hunting. Now she has a calling and made it official. Moonsong PI as in Paranormal Investigator.

    Marshal is becoming her partner in this and new characters and a love interest enter the mix, along with an unsavory witch.

    If you think a witch isn’t all that scary, think again. They have access to lots of power and are always looking for more. That sometimes calls for blood.

    This next installment in the Moonsongs Series is every bit as good as the first. And the author keeps you gasping at the action and grinning at the dialogue. I also like the bit of romance sneaking into this series.

    I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.

    "A handsome and likely intelligent guy, who wasn't my best

    "A handsome and likely intelligent guy, who wasn't my best friend and gay, was something of a unicorn in my life. So I maybe let my eyes linger a touch too long on the front of his pants as he approached. And my posture might've stiffened to let him know I was tall and lean, but still had enough curves to make driving dangerous--and fun."
                                                          -- Witch's Nocturne by E.J. Wesley 




    You know how agents and professional writing blogs are always telling you to write with voice? E.J. has got voice down. You can pick it up in that single paragraph, and it's like he picks you up and stuffs you into Jenny Moonsong's head. It's SO AWESOME.




    I LOVE Witch's Nocturne. Finished it in two lunch breaks at work. E.J. brings alive the best aspects of a paranormal hunter by giving us a character that is equally cool to the well-known Anita Blake that we saw in Laurel K. Hamilton's earlier books, Burnt Offerings and my favorite, Obsidian Butterfly. Here's one of my favorite lines from Hamilton (compare the voice with Penny Moonsong):




    “Accidental sex. He made it sound like I fell down, and there just happened to be an erection in the way.”
    — Anita Blake, Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton




    Jenny Moonsong on the outside, would not fit your typical Texan. But on the inside she's a gun totin', ass-kickin, mohawk wearin', tomahawk totin' female with size 11 boots (everything is big in Texas). Along for the ride is Marshal and the above tall, dark, and handsome stranger who just happens to be a warlock.




    Because the story is short, I'm not going to spoil the plot. But if you're a fan of dark paranormal stories that don't shy away from blood, language, and violence all in the name of putting dirty bad nasties (DBN's) back into the grave, then E.J. is the author for you. Witch's Nocturne is the second book in the Moonsong trilogy and I can't wait for the third. I've seen werewolves, and now I've seen a powerful coven of witches summoning dark powers under a blood red moon. What's next E.J.?




    I give this novella five stars, because I can't wait until the next installment. Witch's Nocturne is more fun than 8 seconds on a bronco at a championship rodeo. And you can take that all the way to the roundup.

    Really entertaining!

    Enjoyed the follow up to the the Moonsongs introduction. Loved meeting the characters in book one, but this was really the start of the paranormal adventure. We get a glimpse into the future story arc told with a fresh voice full of wit.
