2017Cliffhanger NoI ve been a fan of Pamela Sparkman s since her debut book,Stolen BreathsI will read anything she writes, but I must admit, I was in a frenzy of excitement when she decided to take on the fantasy genre It couldn t have come at a better time, because I ve been finding my way back to fantasy and PNR in the past year You might even say it s my current obsession phase, so color me happy that she made this choice to branch out One of the things I really love about this author is that she doesn t put limits on herself to try new genres and characters This story is completely different from all of her others in almost every way Most notably, the mysterious undertone throughout this entire book It weaves between the characters and ties them together in a genius way The riddle of the hero s curse will keep you flipping the pages and attempting to work out where it will lead you When what is blue turns red, your child will bring man to his knees in sorrowFor they will not see the light of tomorrow Let it be so until the mountains move and the rivers shiver As soon as what s been shrouded is revealed, all wicked souls will quiverA refusal shall mark an age of tranquilityAnd the restoration of balance shall bring forth a remedyLord Lochlan is conceived from love, but judged and condemned as shameful An innocent punished for the perceived crimes of his parents He exists centuries in isolation and misery, just surviving Never experiencing a normal life or even a promise of the beauty the world has to offer Death is his consort, coldness his constant companion He s grown weary, sunk into despair at the hopelessness that he ll ever escape his fate The path to freedom begins with the most unlikely little spirited package He admires her fire and wit, he tries to keep her at a distance for her own safety But while his presence has always commanded fear and awe, Elin quickly overcomes his intimidating magnetism and surly disposition Even in the outdoors his presence dominated, consumed, like a monolithic column rising above the ground His essence was as tangible as the man himself Even the air around him hummed in reverence.I loved Lochlan He was protective, strong, and genuine, yet darkly cryptic Even after suffering the contempt of his people and centuries of hurt, he maintained a light underneath that darkness From the beginning, it was obvious to me that he was ripe for redemption He only needed someone with the courage to fight this monumental battle by his side There is a brewing war, and his battle is integral to the outcome of it all The only question is, is he doomed for damnation or is there a flicker of hope in all of the madness Hiding unthinkable scars that it seems could never be healed, he hold everything inside and lets it fester Never revealing the deep cut that he can never forgive himself for.Elin was a young woman who like Lochlan, knows what it s like to be judged for being different, found wanting Forced to move to Kaelmor Kingdom with her parents in search of safety, she unknowingly moves closer to the fire Danger is never far from her, but she lacks the knowledge to protect herself She s intelligent, yet a little naive at first andthan a little innocent That innocence is heartbreakingly shattered, and her whole world is shifted in ways she couldn t have imagined But through her pain, we see her grow into a steely resolve and strength no matter what s thrown at her With Lochlan, she has a protector, a friend, and a man who she yearns to be close to Their forbidden love delivers an ache and anticipation that draws you right into their rioting emotions They re passionate Tender Desperately longing for the impossible I came back His heart swelled Why She shook her head Because, I felt like you needed me Did you Need me All he could do was look at her, wondering why it took so long for her to come into his life Yes, he said I think I always have Nothing is quite what it seems in this story Their journey is filled with malevolent forces, hidden agendas, and shocking truths The ending leaves you with one story complete, and another waiting to be told Knowing what she has planned for the next in the series, I m not ashamed to say that I m already counting down the days until she starts writing This character is one that is completely torn, broken, and filled with complexities Tormented doesn t even begin to cover him, and I know his will be one fascinating and twisted tale.Pamela Sparkman always knows how to write a story full of emotion, true romance, and meaning But this book has exceeded my expectations and shines brighter than I ever could have anticipated The Moon Shines Red is a love story born in impossible circumstances, and strengthened in adversity and tragedy There are power struggles, deceit, and secrets to be uncovered It s about the balance of good and evil, choosing sides and fighting for something that s worth dying for It s the ultimate fantasy romance that poses the question, Can love really conquer all FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON

And you will owe me that kiss.The anvil inside his chest had said More than that I will owe you my life. Pamela also created a wonderful set of supporting characters and gave each and one of them a life of its own A purpose They were vivid and pulled on my heartstrings I wouldn t mind reading a story about each character that was woven so beautifully and smartly into the story The monk Searly, her parents, Arwyn And the villain Zeph, was built from so many layers I started the story with hating him, but something in himI can t explain it And I don t want to say too much The building mystery kept me on the edge of my seat The blooming romance made my heart beat fast The story was filled with mystery, humor, funny banter, pain, love, heartbreak, hope and kickass characters You re an arse, I said I m an arse Yes, I bit out, jutting my chin forward You re also tense, evasive, aggressive, brusque, and demanding Is that so His voice soundedentertained I ignored his tone and answered his question Yes See what I m talking about If I let you set my breeches on fire, would you forgive me then My annoyance sparked like dry wood No, however, I would enjoy watching you dance around very much A hearty, robust laugh consumed all four walls of the library I ll remember not to upset you in the future I loved this two 3Personally, this book felt like a rollercoaster Pamela Sparkman surprised me one time after the other There were several twists and turns and what I believed was WRONG turned out to be RIGHT.The Moon Shines Red is a story that will stay with me for a long time Pamela blue me away with the fantasy world she built and the tender, passionate and heartwarming romance she created Who will win in the upcoming war Would it be good or evil And how much evil is the evil Read and find out 3OMG I m so excited and really looking forward to the next book is this series I m proud of you, acushla Why do you call me that What does it mean It means He leaned forward, careful not to touch me, and whispered My pulse Safety view spoiler Safe No OW OM Both virgins and each other s firsts in everything 3 hide spoiler VirginHero AlphaMale SafeRead
