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.
This whole series thus far is very unique and unlike anything I have ever read before. I enjoy paranormal and fantasy reads, but this one definitely outside the realm of my norm.
I have to say, I have enjoyed The Mirror of the Moon a bit more than I liked The Bonds of Blood. I felt that The Bonds of Blood was a little slower than I wished and picked up more towards the end and that That Mirror of the Moon picked up from there.
There tends to be more going on in this book and there is a level of anxiousness awaiting to see what is going to occur. Additionally, some of my questions were finally answered and I really do look forward to what comes next in the sequel!
While I feel you could read The Mirror of the Moon as a stand alone (without reading The Bonds of Blood first) but I am not sure that you would be able to follow it as closely – it may be slightly confusing. I do, however, recommend reading each in succession and if you are into fantasy, be sure to have the next book on hand because when you finish one, you’ll want to move right into the next!

About the Author
“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.
