The Mirror of the Moon Book Review

The Mirror Of The Moon (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #2) 

The exciting sequel to The Bonds of Blood.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms,twenty-one year-old Angelica, Jovian, and Joya pair up with their mentor Grace in pursuit of their kidnapped sister and heir to their plantation, Amber. Their quest suddenly changes when an ancient enemy of their family, Porillon, appears with Amber. A dangerous battle ensues, threatening one of their lives, and a new insight about their family is revealed, making the group question what Grace knows, and what she might be hiding. Porillon slips away with Amber, but Angelica and Jovian's visions hint that their sister may have been taken to the Mirror of the Moon, an ancient temple dedicated to the Goddess. 

Finding sanctuary with the elves and dwarves in the Mountains of Nependier, the group presses Grace to answer questions about their family's past. Their insistence leads to a revelation the youths aren't ready to handle. While they are still reeling from the news, Angelica and Jovian begin to feel a strange new consciousness waking inside of them, and what's more unnerving, it's taking over their individual thoughts...and joining them into one.

My Review

This being the second book of the series I expected it to drag a little. But none of it mattered because I knew why.Travis Simmons gets very in dept with his descriptions only because he really wants his readers to see exactly what he sees. That to me is a good enough reason to drag the story line just a wee bit.

*May Contain Spoilers*
Jovian lives! And oh how does he live. He not only finds more of himself but he even finds himself a lover. He has a deep connection with his sister Angelica to the point where they can communicate without speaking. Sister Joya chooses a side and chooses wrong. But she redeems herself and goes into training to become a better wyrder. Though Amber is still missing from the quadruplet siblings I am almost positive she will return to them soon. I hope.

Other characters come about in the Mirror of the Moon that were either not present in the first novel or were mentioned briefly. Grace is becoming one of my favorite characters. I empathize with her because of her aching joints and having to deal with youth that despise her and love her all the same. I also can't wait to see what her and her clique of elderly women have up their sleeves.

I will say it once again this series is great if you love fantasy adventure novels. You will quickly be immersed in the realms and feel as though you personally know these characters and their world.

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
