Lee Roland: Vicious Moon



Adow by the name of Etienne who has an immunity to magic and a hatred of all witches Nix falls easily in with him and his group of mercenaries having worked with several of his men in her past career but maintains her wit and independence even when his prejudice toward witches shines through Everyone seems to be against her finding her sister and she has to learn to get ahold of her fire magic in order to decipher the clues she left behindAs an rban fantasy this story works I find the world of the Barrows to be interesting Nix is another kick ass heroine who may be inept at times but always seems to get the job done Although she s saddled with Etienne following her around and being with her every step she still manages to go her own way and be her own person I love watching UF characters be overcome by circumstances fall down and pick themselves back Her Bedroom Surrender up again and Nix does that over and over She s not a very knowledgeable witch and every time sheses her fire gift it gets out of hand She gets hurt repeatedly and towards the end I found myself wondering how in the world she managed to pick herself back No Strings Attached (www.girl-gear... up to finish her search Especially since her love interest never at any time seemed like he was that concerned over her injuries Cold that s how I would describe Etienne Cold standoffish and not very good at showing his emotionsMy problem lies with the romance between Nix and Etienne There was no romance There was snarky comments him following her around him keeping his distance even when she was hurt her being attracted to his manliness and one sex scene That s about it I never at any time believed these two should be in a relationship Hot sex for one night yes her staying on because they love each other no While Inderstand that she s an ex soldier and he s some kind of criminal master thief bad guy I still want there to be some tenderness and emotion between my Hh I never really felt like I got that which made the ending not believable at all I ve read all three books in this series and this one seems to be heavier on the UF and lighter on the romance I struggled to stay engaged with these characters and think that if there had been chemistry between these two that I might have enjoyed the story Final Grade C Favorite Sheriff Takes A Bride (Family Matters, uoteI threw my handsp This place is paradise We have a demon who acts too kind and sophisticated to suash a bug and a militia leader on the whole world s most wanted list I poked his ribs with my finger to see him flinch There s a pretty boy gang leader who probably calls Mom every night and a malicious earth witch who well the Mother only knows what she wants It s imminent Armageddon I would have loved to give this five stars straight Her Cowboys Christmas Wish (Mustang Valley up but hesitate as I recall the glaring typos near the end of the kindle version of the book which I read Great characters and though numerous she did her best to keep them distinct Several deep story lines Perhaps a little too fast paced for my tastes so many scenes she passes over with a paragraph summation I felt drawn into the story and yet settings did not linger in my mind as I expected I believe it might be due to lessse of all five senses in description I don t recall much mention of taste and smell to get the entire immersion into the story Overall I very much intend to read by this author 455Mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewI was really curious to start this series especially given the beautiful reviews that I had read I thought it would me may be difficult to start with the third book because I think it s always the fact with traditional Secret Agent Seduction urban fantasy novels as we need to read a book after another But not at all Each novel follows a different person so it is not a problem to read this novel apart from the others though I am now very curious to discover the stories of the first volumesNyx is a young woman who ran away for her whole life Earth witch she left her city before having to train her power which would have reuired her to follow the education like every witches And for this she decided to be part of the army and never came back on this decision Yet when one day the Sisters of Justice brought her back to her town so she could discover what had happened to her little sister who is missing Nyx will have to come to terms with her past For this she has to go to Duivel the last known location of Marisol But this place is weirder than ever A demon lives there hidden several groups survive the most bizarre creatures roam there and a man is immune against any form of magic In this context our young heroine will have to investigate and try tonderstand the subtleties to find her sisterI loved Nyx She is an independent young woman who is not afraid of anything and yet she is than worried about her sister She will end A Vintage Affair up in a world that will completely change her life forcing her to reconcile with her witch side She is also accompanied by her familiar we can only love he has also some strange habits and yet he is always so funny And whatever we might think he will always be there to help our witch I must say she will need his help with that many enemies and with her powers amplifying without any control In addition we meet Etienne a man who like her is an ex soldier but also a wanted criminal in the whole world I admit that I was very curious about him and it was notntil the end of the story that we really Sirens Fury (The Storm Siren Trilogy, understand who he is His ability to be immune to magic and to return all spells makes himite Virgil uniue I had a lot ofestions about him as much as our heroine and I was also surprised to learn the truth His relationship with Nyx is also curious He protects and follows her wherever she goes feels attracted to her and at the same time he dedicates a visceral hatred to all witches which makes things ite difficult I must say Yet together they form a beautiful duoThe Lee Roland has created is the most intriguing world and I confess that I did not expect to have something as complex I had a lot of fun to discover it and it is true that I still have many estions It was a novel that completely won me and I loved the story from beginning to end Everything is fascinating and I do not expect to have many revelations like that The end introduces s a mysterious character and I confess that I can not wait to learn about him This is a very good story that I recommend I hope to have the opportunity to read the next one very ickly Full review on All About Romance there is this thing called show don t tell one of the first things you learn about good writing In the end it is really about balance than anything else but the basic idea behind it is to not have large blocks of let me tell you about this thing that happenedis happeningwill happen with no direct integration into the story Now that the lesson of the day is over here s the relevance this story failed in the concept of balance by page 22 Luckily it had an interesting plot and fun and interesting and tormented characters to keep it from failing tterlyNyx Ianira is a former Army former private security mercenary private investigator Er own Now she’s being dragged back to her swampy hometown because another life is in danger Her little sister is missing and Nyx is the only one who can track her down in Duivel Missouri But the key to finding her may lie with dark and tempting Etienne a sinister criminal with a fearsome reputation a ruthless attitude and a total immunity to magic.

Vicious Moon was an enjoyable and thrilling read It tells the story of a young witch Nyx who is forced to return to her home town Twitch Crossings to search for her sister Marisol also a witch who had gone missing in Duivel Missouri There she crosses path with several other notable characters Laudine Dervick Micheal Aiakos and importantly Ettienne who supposedly is the love of her life Accompanied by her ever faithful familiar Herschel Nyx goes on several adventures that test her strength as well as self control as a witch who possesses the power of Fire Vicious Moon like any other adult books isn t really complete without some dose of romance and that s where Ettienne plays his part At the beginning Nyx s and Ettienne s relationship started with doubts and cautions where both will repeatedly remind themselves of each other s strengths and weaknesses As an individual Nyx is an admirable main character very likeable and has a strong personality However despite solid descriptions of Ettienne as an eually attractive man I had trouble picturing him as a realistic character let alone connecting to him In terms of story building the author had done a great job of creating a fantasy world where magic and real world collides without sounding too cartoonish and absurd Her narration was wonderful and readable told in the first person through Nyx s perspective enabling her readers to dig deep into Nyx s life and emotionsVicious Moon in overall was worthwhile and definitely deserves a place in a reader s bookshelf or e book file I would recommend this book to fans of adult rban fantasy and romance This was goodThank You Ms RolandKen I haven t read anything by Lee Roland before and I chose Vicious Moon to review because it features the supernatural specimen of my choice witches The book itself is sort of an odd mixture of PNR and UF although if I really had to choose I d go with UF The relationship between the two main characters develops sort of haphazardly and that aspect of the novel is what disappointed me the mostNix Ianira is an earth witch and a licensed private investigator She s retrieved by the Sisters of Justice the Earth Mother s enforcersexecutioners and taken back to Twitch Crossing Georgia Nix s hometown Nix learns that her grandmother had her escorted back to Georgia because she fears something has happened to Nix s sister Marisol Nix heads to Duivel Missouri where her sister was last seen and soon finds herself in over her head She travels to a location just outside of Duivel that is known as the Barrows a tract of land that has ruins nearby as well as the Zombie Zone the heart of evil where a demon just happens to reside as described by a fellow witchNix meets Etienne a man that controls the Barrows and whom is immune to any sort of magic Besides Etienne there are several names that are tossed out that are pertinent in earlier books but don t have any real significance in Vicious Moon While investigating the disappearance of her sister Nix has Etienne shadowing her every move An enigmatic figure with a strong dislike of witches Etienne and Nix work English Doctor, Italian Bride uneasily together to discover what happened to Nix s sister I never really bought into the romance between the two of them for a couple of reasons Nix is a lot open with Etienne as opposed to vice versa This leads to an imbalance in the developing relationship and it doesn t really progress on his side at allntil he becomes physically intimate with Nix Nix pays for Etienne s prejudice against witches often at the expense of her being hurtNix isn t a soft or gentle character She doesn t make excuses for not being a perfect or good witch The voice of her character is often abrupt and Lullaby for Two unapologetic and it took me awhile to getsed to the voice but once I did I actually did enjoy her as she was written Many references are made to Aiakos the demon that Etienne serves but whom does not grace the pages very often I was a little disconcerted by this as there are events that are referenced in regards to his character that obviously took place in previous books but with little explanation The pacing is pretty even throughout the book but the awkward romance and I think I m being generous in calling it a romance really did detract from the story Had it been portrayed differently or not at all for that matter it would ve been a stronger book On the other hand I did enjoy the way the magic system was presented and the idea of the Barrows Ronnie Posted on Romancing the Books blogReviewed by RobinReview copy provided by the AuthorSomehow I am drawn to the moon It doesn t matter if it is in the title of a book or movie or even at night going out to look at the moon and take pictures I find it fascinating So I decided Vicious Moon sounds like it would be a story about Vampires Were beings and creatures of the night I found that this wasn t the case Okay it had some creatures of Once a Thief (The Network uestionable origins but I was a little disappointed Instead we find ourselves ensconced with Earth Witches which by the way I wasn tite sure what exactly an earth witch was and why they were so different I was somewhat disappointed as I never really did find out There were also some creatures from the Loving Jessie underworld with ties to perhaps the Gods and Goddesses Nyx an ex soldierPI ran away from her life as an Earth Witch ten years ago Now she has been tracked down by the Sisters of Justice Usually when they showp as a threesome an execution in in sight but for Nyx they are there to escort her back home to Twitch Crossings Georgia I love the sound of Twitch Crossings How fun would it be to go there on Halloween When she gets home she finds out that her sister is missing and that she is the only one that can track her Knowing that her grandmother is Behind Closed Doors (Made in Montana, unable to go Nyx finds that she is soon on her way to Duivel Missouri a place that is there and yet it isn t As she embarks on a mission to find her sister who has disappeared Nyx comes across a really strange town that seems to hold secrets doesn t care for witches and has some creatures from thenderworld that are remarkably handsome and somewhat self centered Then there is Etienne Who happens to be dark tempting and oh so mysterious with a criminal background an attitude and he is immune to magic Strange but still Nyx is drawn to him He holds back information from Nyx which doesn t help in finding her sister They find they are both drawn to one another but Etienne has been hurt by a witch and really wants nothing to do with Nyx Well okay maybe a little when it comes to sex Overall the story could have been done a little better Ms Roland wrote a rather fast paced story that was somewhat entertaining but I found it hard to grasp where she was going at times I thought I would learn about the Earth Witches and their special powers but she seemed to me anyways to focus on the destruction of the town and what lies beneath it The connection between the witches and the nderworld was a little hazy from my standpoint However I found out that this is the third in the series and I was a little lost. “A powerful witch might live a long time but a single well placed bullet could change that While my preferred weapon was magic I was not averse to shooting anyone or anything offering my sister or me harm” Ex soldier and earth witch Nyx Ianira is working as a PI in San Francisco when she sees the last thing she ever wants to see the Sisters of Ju.

Maybe if I read the first two stories in the series I may not have been so lost and therefore I would have been able to nderstand and enjoy this book a bit perhaps But that isn t to say someone else

tempting Etienne a sinister criminal with a fearsome reputation a ruthless attitude and a total immunity to magic REVIEW I will have to confess I haven t read the first two books And I think in this case I may have to go back and read them this isn t a stand alone book it definitely needs to be read in order I did feel I was missing something probably background on some of the characters that I meet in this book But saying that it was still a good readWitches aren tsually my thing and I needed a little convincing Barb But once I started it it was very detailed Lee writes a very descriptive world and I could imagine it very easilyNyx is a witch who doesn t DO spells her words she relies on her fire magic and her gun She has a comfy life in the human world she is a private Investigator and has no wish to visit her rootsWe meet Made of Honor up with Nyx on a job But this turns out to be the start of a REALLY bad day After bungling a sure fire job Nyx is chased by a triad of warrior

the Enemys Arms uick lesson Nyx meets our hero Etienne who I have to admitpon first reading him I wanted to smash his face in Totally arrogant and obnoxious and yes we know they will become an item but I really did not like himEtienne may know where Marisol is or who saw her last So Nyx follows Etienne into the Barrows The Barrows is a place of old magic and harbours a Dark and evil presence on that laterIn a place called Archangel we meet a very charismatic couple Micheal and his mate Madeline they were in book 2Nobody seems worried that Marisol is missing and everyone is very interested in Nyx Etienne then takes Nyx to meet his boss and this is where we meet the dark and malevolent being that the Mother Earth has trapped in the Barrows He wants out but if he escapes then the earth as we know it will be destroyed There is also a zombie zone which I thought would produce Zombies Well I thought I so But apparently it only means a portal that is one way THINGS come out but nothing can go inWe meet a few of those things through the book Giant crabs And it keeps the reader on their toesEtienne is a very closed off character We learn through the book that he was a witches pet But not a willing one so he REALLY doesn t like nor trusts witches And nlike most of our hero s Etienne really is a bad guy He steals whatever his past and current bosses want it doesn t seem to worry him And several times through the book I did think that the PROPER hero would come in and sort Etienne out But slowly the two characters come together and it was nice that it wasn t within the first few chapters There was a two steps forward one step back kind of movement going on Trust had to be earned and even then I think it was all one sidedThere were a few surprises along the way and a few moments that I still wanted to slap EtienneNyx has a familiar Which a witchy fans will know that a familiar helps it s owner along the way well not Nyx s it farted drooled and at one point totalled ignored it s mistress and it was a total joy to read those parts it lightened the moments and stopped it getting to moroseThere were a few battle scenes and these were written very well In fact I could see this making a great movieAnd do Etienne and Nyx find Marisol and do they live happily ever after Your going to have to read It and find out for yourself posted as a guest review over at
