About the Author

She got a bachelor's degree, had a career and traveled extensively before settling down to her life's work of being the mother of four magnificent and sometimes challenging children. She loves shellfish, the out of doors, the youth and hearing her children laugh. She and her husband, their family, and their happy dog now live in a mountain valley in northern Utah, where it smells like heaven and kids still move sprinkler pipe.

Jaclyn M. Hawkes in her new book, “Warrior’s Moon” published by Spirit Dance Books LLC introduces us to Chantaya Kincraig and Peyton Wolfgar. From the Back Cover: They loved each other desperately. Never in all the kingdom has there been a more brave and protective champion. Nor such a loyal and capable maiden. He rescued her the first time when they were three years old in a killing storm. Years later, he was still occasionally rescuing her. ’Twas in him to be a hero, and she had a pure intrepid way of getting into the kinds of scrapes that took rescuing. With such a brawny, masculine guardian around, ’twould of been a pity to waste the gallantry anyway. Their childhood friendship between two young peasants had grown into a devotion few are ever blessed to experience. It was strong enough to withstand all their dark age held—danger, feudalism, disease, and unfair oppression? Or was it strong enough? They truly loved each other desperately. They loved their kingdom more. Spies, knights and Medieval romance. What more can you ask for? Chantaya and Peyton are quite close to Lois Lane and Superman those these two actually have a romance. Then we have the bad guys and they are really bad. There is an attempt to take over the kingdom and those that can oppose this coup are small and in great danger. Excitement, intrigue, betrayal and honor are part of this wonderful story. And did I mention the romance? I think you will like this book a lot.

My Review: Warrior's Moon by Jaclyn M. Hawkes 5 stars I did not put the book down once I started reading it. The characters right off the bat go into your heart and stay their. I even shed a tear or two. I was not sure how much I would like it just by reading the blurb. I truly admire the characters. The plot is simple a boy and girl growing up. Close friends till something else starts growing. They are kept apart while he learns to be a knight. But the story is so much more. So much richer in the characters. So willing to do the right thing for many than be selfish. Abuse of power by some. Others sacrifice. It is full of humor, action, drama, of good and bad and wonderful characters. Of Knights and battles even a fancy masquerade ball with the Prince and Princess. It is also a clean read. I was sad when the book was done because I wanted to enjoy it longer. The setting is a time of small villages, ruled under powerful Lords who charge taxes of their tenants. With a good King in power. A time of Knights and horses. This is my third book I have read now of Jaclyn M. Hawkes and I have loved all three of them. I will definitely read more books of hers in the future. I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it and be part of its blog tour.

A beautiful tale of tender love, brave courage, and hope for the future. A REALLY, REALLY, REALLY GREAT STORY! Peyton was there, watching from his window, the night Chantaya's blazing cart took her father's life. Chantaya was only 3 years old and from that night forth Peyton became Chantaya's protector. She became like a sister, but as they both grew older she became more than a sister. He became a literal knight-in-shining-armor... But she was no damsel in distress... Two people who love each other passionately...and love their kingdom even more Two people though miles apart share the same moon...a warrior's moon. You HAVE TO READ this book!

I love, love, loved this book!!!!!!  It was clean, and wonderful from beginning to the end.  I will try very hard not to give too much away, but I honestly loved this book, so I want to talk about each of the characters that I enjoyed. Isabella Kincraig- The woman amazes me.  She goes through so much in her life to keep her daughter safe.  She is strong, and beautiful.  She is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her family safe.  LOVED her! Chantaya Kincraig - Isabella's daughter.  She is by far my favorite character.  This girl is A MAY ZING!  She goes through a lot in her little life at the very beginning you cannot help but love her.  What I love most about her is that she is strong through the WHOLE book.  She never backs down from what she believes in and always fights for what is right.  A heroine that never wimps out.  I LOVED her! Peyton Wolfgar - He is a beautiful human being.  He is kind, loving, caring, and a protector.  He is another character that is great from beginning to the end.  The sweetest boy, and then the sweetest man.  He is what every girl should strive to find in a man.  His love for Chani is so great.  It made me cry a few times!  I LOVED him!!!!! The rest of the Wolfgar Family - such great people.  They took a woman and her child in with only the intention of helping and bringing them back to heath.  A compassionate and caring family.  Strong and had lots of love for every one. Sir Mordecai - A Knight...Need I say more?  He is an old Knight who builds a stone cottage in the woods to live out the rest of his life in solitude.  He soon finds a family in the Wolfgar family and the Kincraigs.  He is honorable, strong, and a Knight!  Like I said earlier..."need I say more?" :) Prince Laird & King Dougal - Good, honorable men who wanted the best for their kingdom.  They treated everyone with respect, and held those who fought for their kingdom in high esteem.  I loved that the King and the Prince listened to others information and didn't just make decisions based on what they wanted.  They always did what was best for the whole. Conrad - I just love him.  He watched over Isabella and Chani when Peyton couldn't and was just an all around good  guy.  Sweet, caring, watchful, and protective. Okay, now for the ones I didn't like, but really did make good "love to hate" characters! Lord Rosskeene - I didn't like him from the moment he entered the book.  I knew that he was going to be a horrible man.  A nobleman who thought the world owed him everything.  He thought he could take whatever he wanted without any consequence.  He made me so angry even when his name was mentioned in this book. Damian - Lord Rosskeene's son - was just like his wretched father.  A horrible human being.  He never had a good example to follow, but a horrible human being just the same. Hawkes writing is beautiful.  I loved every moment reading this book.  I hated having to put it down.  I loved the romance, the struggle, and most of all I loved that Chani was a strong woman from beginning to end.  The love story is just the sweetest thing.  I LOVE a good love story.  I have VERY few books that I add to my "want to read again" list, but this one has definitely made that list.  I think I could read it over and over and not get sick of it.  It just was such a good, CLEAN, book! Thanks Hawkes for your amazing writing and bringing such a sweet love story to life.
