"BLACK MOON DRAW is a must read for fans of fantasy, paranormal, and Sci Fi." -Fresh Fiction

A reader trapped in fiction. A knight desperate to save his kingdom. A harrowing journey home.

For fans of "Labyrinth" and "The Neverending Story" comes an epic fantasy adventure ...

Naia gets sucked into her book and is trapped, unless she convinces the hero of the story to send her home. Just her luck - the book is unfinished, and its hero has other plans for her, none of which involve helping her return to her world.

What Naia doesn’t know: the story – and its hero – have been expecting her for quite some time. The Shadow Knight believes her to be the prophesized battle-witch who will help break the curse that has plagued the kingdom of Black Moon Draw for a thousand years.

Naia must learn quickly how to navigate the dangerous, magical world of Black Moon Draw and find a way to complete her journey with the unlikely, uncooperative hero of the story, whose sole purpose in life is saving his world from the end of the era.

Excellent world building, but it’s hard to read 264 pages when the protagonist is a whiny idiot. I felt kind of bad for the hero by the time the book was over.

"If this world exists, then is every book world real? Are the characters alive and living out their experiences, even after I put the book down?" Black Moon Draw by Lizzy Ford is terrific. The story line has been done before, reader having a rough time gets sucked into a good book, but never have I experienced it done so well. Having been drawn into my share of book worlds, I absolutely loved it.

I enjoyed a book about an avid reader like myself, and let's face it...isn't the fantasy of any bookworm to be sucked into a book they love?  I enjoyed the irony and playfulness of the author to use things that we, as readers, complain about and things we love in the story.  I also loved the character names being drawn from other famous works of literature and films.  While I'd love to see what happens with LF and the Red Knight, I also enjoy the cliffhanger on this particular book.  Well done Miss Ford, the first I've read from this author and I'm sure to read more.

A reader's dream come true We all love to getaway from our realities of the everyday routines, when life is throwing us curve balls we all love to escape into a world of books. Imaginations of magic, of love, lust, desire or even just friendships. We sort of develop relationships with the characters we come to love and within the pages of Black Moon Draw one reader gets a “wish” of all us readers.  The Shadow Knight (*sighs mmhmm thank you ) he is all MAN, sexy and dominating. The Shadow Knight is cursed and who will help remove this curse? There are so many characters in this story that I like and I know you will like as well. Naia, now she is your everyday type of woman. She gets lost in the pages of her favorite author's book escaping the reality that sucks for her. She gets to have an amazing journey in Black Moon Draw one only readers get to fantasize about. I know you will love her sense of humor. The desire she has for the Shadow King increases with each chapter. I promise you will love this story!  Funny, sexy, and falling in love with dreams coming true. If you want to get wrapped up into a journey that has all of this and more than I highly recommend this book. Lizzy Ford strikes again! There is a meaning behind this story, don’t be afraid to try! Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and believe in yourself! You alone have the power to do whatever it is you want in life you do not need anyone to give you that courage its within.

Black Moon Draw, what can anyone say when they fall into a rabbit hole of adventure! What a ride!!! Lizzy Ford has out done herself with this awesome Novel, which by the way I think it should continue on. If you are a lover of fairy tale movies, than you will love this book. It has been by far the most clever book written yet by Mrs. Ford. As readers we all find ourselves living the story, but to live it with a fictional character who would be going through the same motions as you is beyond words. The characters are all and more than one can expect from a story, I took great pleasure with this book, I laughed and went through the same confusion as the main character Naia went through as she was flung into this mad world of fantasy, adventure and love. I can rant and continue to talk about it but, it's one of those reads that you must experience for yourself. Lizzy keep it coming woman it was as I said one of your most clever writing EVER!!!

Lizzy does it again. Comes up with a slightly quirky answer to that question that all avid readers have regarding what would they do if they were the heroine in the story. After her fiance breaks up with her less than a week before her wedding, Naia is doing what she loves to do whenever life gets her down and that is hiding away at home reading a book. In an odd twist, Naia is reading a book, chapter by chapter, as the author completes and posts them on line. The book isn't remotely complete and she already questions what the author is doing, just like any reader would do (at least I do!). After imbibing nearly two bottles of wine, she passes out and later awakens in Black Moon Draw, the latest character in the book. And like any sane person, believes she is dreaming and that there is no way in hell she is actually there and that anything around her is real, including the sexy, perceived villain of the story, the Shadow Knight. Little does she expect that she got her wish, to be able to dictate how the story would turn out. That the author is not necessarily writing what will happen next, but rather that she is living it out real time. And what an adventure it turns out to be. For someone who abhors conflict of any kind, living in medieval conditions filled with magic (thank God, because without it, she would never have survived) is not something she is cut out for...or so she thinks. She can't quite peg all of the other characters, nor what her purpose is, but knows that she is attracted to the Shadow Knight and wants to go home. At least initially. Realizing she has a role to play to help determine how the story will end, she'll eventually learn what she needs to know before all is lost. Now I did say the story was quirky. What part? Well, Naia is a reader and she loves watching movies. Why not? She pretty much hides away at home when not working at the library. While in (? or is it "at") Black Moon Draw, outside of the fact that magic doesn't exist in the real world and the fact that she is "living" in medieval times, the whole landscape revolves around some of her favorite movie characters and lines. Perhaps not exactly matching, but sometimes close enough to actually be funny. And as such, it just makes her more firmly entrenched in the idea that none of it is real, even if it actually feels like it is. Being a fan of some of the movies Naia loves, it was a cute touch, although some might roll their eyes at the silliness of it. I thought it was actually clever. And the ending just made me want a book 2. I gotta know what happens to the Red Knight, and his plans for LF, our very likeable author. If you like fantasy, historical romances, love to read and always wished you could be the lucky women who snags the seriously sexy hero, and are not opposed to some quirkiness in the story, you'll love this as much as I did. My one negative? Naia was just a little too cowardly for me and it took nearly the whole book to develop the confidence and backbone to come through for Black Moon Draw.

Black Moon Draw by Lizzy Ford 5 stars I loved the humor in this book! The learning curve that Naia and the Shadow King have to quickly adapt to is heart warming and funny. I really enjoyed the switching POV's as Naia went from a reader's POV to a character's POV made me feel like I do when reading a good book that sucks me and, and how I imagine I would feel if I were a character. This was new and different and I enjoyed every bit of it.

Awesome new twist on a time travel! Naia is engaged to be married, but before the wedding, her fiance calls off the wedding. She decides to put on the beautiful dress she was to wear for the rehearsal and drown her sorrows in some red wine. To take her mind off of her woes, she starts to read current work in progress by L.F., over on Wattpad. After a late night of reading, and a bit too much wine, she wakes up in the unfinished novel. The shadow night has been awaiting the arrival of his battle witch. What he gets isn't quite what he expected. Sure she's wearing the right color of dress reserved for the battle witches, but it's far too revealing. Top that off with the fact that she doesn't know how to use her powers and claims she's from a different time. He needs her to figure out how to properly use her powers and help him complete his mission before the world of Black Moon Draw is lost forever. I absolutely LOVED this book! I was up all night reading it. I really enjoyed the references and similarities to The Never Ending Story and Labyrinth movies. The banter between Naia and the author of the unfinished novel is hilarious! Black Moon Draw is a must read for fans of fantasy, paranormal, and Sci Fi.

Naia’s fiance just dumped her a week before the wedding and she finds herself alone at home with a bottle of wine and some new uploaded chapters from a book she’s been reading online. She ends up passing out sometime between her pity party and wakes up in the book she was reading. She’s convinced it’s a dream at first until she realizes that she’s quite possibly really in the fantasy world of the book. She is faced with a huge quest. She must help the Shadow King save his realm or the realm itself will cease to exist, with Naia still in it. I have to admit that the idea that one could literally get sucked into the book they are reading was pretty interesting. I liked that the author added some interesting aspects into the novel like the animal heads the warriors wear to heighten their abilities. Can’t say I’ve ever heard of that before. I was actually a little worried that one of the leading men literally had a boar’s head. I mean, a guy with a boar face is not attractive at all. The characters were likable and pretty realistic. Sure, Naia was a bit stubborn at first with her denial of what was going on, but who wouldn’t be. I mean, there have been many times where I’ve fallen asleep after reading only to have the story continue in my dream. The Shadow King was a bit of a brute but he’s got a thousand year curse on his shoulders and only nine days left to lift the curse. So of course he’s short with Naia, his wimpy non-battle battle witch. She’s the one who’s supposed to help him save his world and every time a fight breaks out, she runs the other way… or up a tree. I will be honest that the Red King reminded me of Lord Baelish from Game of Thrones. You never knew who’s side he was on or what his end game was. He just always popped up when conflict arose and always seemed to diffuse it. He was everyone’s ally but an enemy in disguise. I think I found his character the most fascinating because of that. However, when I read a story, I read it for the fact of being taken out of reality, and I didn’t get that with this book. I was always one foot in while reading. That was due to two things. One being that Naia was always talking out loud to the author of the story. She’d point out inconsistencies like the Shadow King going from chaps to kilt in the blink of an eye or daylight lasting too long when it should clearly be night by that time, she’d complain to her about wanting to go home, and would ask why she was even sent there. Every time that happened I was jolted out of the story and back to reality. I’d have been fine if it were just at the beginning until Naia came to terms with her new life but I was reminded that this was a book within a book until the very end. The second thing was all the pop culture references. Apparently the author, LF, is a fan of some popular movies/tv shows because things would be said, names used, or circumstances happened that Naia immediately remembered from a movie/tv show. Which she’d then comment on how the author must be a fan of said move/show. A couple of which I was familiar with, others… not so much. I personally really dislike when an author uses pop culture references in a story and makes it the punch line for the scene. Primarily because for those of us who haven’t seen the show/movie, heard the song, or read the book, we have no freaking idea what’s going on. It’s like being left out of a joke that everyone else is laughing at. Yeah, that happened a lot to me in this story. I think this is a great story. It took me a while to get into and it didn’t fully hold my interest like I’d like but those were all personal reasons. I don’t like being reminded that I’m reading a book, it’s kinda like having someone interrupt you in the middle of a scene, and I don’t like pop culture references, especially ones I don’t know, in my literature. However, for those who don’t have the same issues as me, they’d probably love this book.

I received this book from Barclay Publicity as part of the blog tour in return for a fair and honest review. The idea of a reader waking up in one of the books she's reading is a fresh one on me so I was intrigued when given this to read. This really is an 'Alice in Wonderland' sort of book and really, Naia has my every sympathy as she tries to figure just how the hell she got there, what she's supposed to do, how this world works and more importantly, just who she can trust. There were some real laugh out loud moments in this book for me, such as when our timid battle-witch "I'm not a battle-witch, I'm a librarian" climbs a tree and declares herself a tree-witch instead. The typos, proof-reading and editing comments also made me laugh as this is something that I do myself when reading any book. I think we've all 'spoken' to an author as we've read their book at some time in our reading life. The references to The Princess Bride and Neverending Story just were the icing on top of the cake for me as these are two of my all-time favourite films so I knew the references and could easily understand the implications. However, if you don't know these films then I'm guessing that might be an issue. On the whole, I really enjoyed this book although I would have liked a bit more contact with the other characters. Some, like 'Wolfie' appear to be main characters but you don't have much to do with them at all during the book and you only find out what has happened to them as an aside. Loved the ending and look forward to reading hopefully more from "LF".

This is such a magical story! It not only has adventure, mystery, romance, tension, and humor, but it is so well written in every way. I could not stop reading this book, and I just wanted more and more. Oh yeah, I was craving BROWNIES like crazy the whole time too! Lizzy does an excellent job of showing how Naia, who is reading an unfinished book she found online by her favorite author, falls asleep and wakes up inside the book’s story. She faces danger and uncertainty in this strange new world. At first all she can think about is getting back home, but then she becomes entangled in the circumstances of this new world – and is slowly falling for the sexy hero! This story is what every girl wants: to be drawn into a magical world where she is not only the main character, but is one of the most important people in the world, and she gains the full attention of the sexy warrior hero! This is a must read for everyone!
