Janet Lane Walters has written a story that will take you to another time and place. She gives vivid descriptions of her characters and their role in this story. Ms. Walters has constructed a civilization so real that you will feel its very existence. A place where men rule women as chattel for their sexual needs, and three evil rulers who drain their bodies of their very essence for spells and to gain power. There is betrayal and treachery inside of plots, as each priest plans to rule alone. Ashiera, Egeria, and Dian are bound to the spirits of the ones who came before them. They discover a truth that will astound them, and have them doubting their chosen path. They will experience a love that is forbidden and discover that two stand together better than one. I could feel the emotional struggle between love and destiny, described so passionately by the author. I hope Ms. Walters plans to continue this story. I could feel that this is just the beginning of this tale. Janet Walters book, Moon Bright, Moon Dark will go on my keeper shelf, beside such authors as Charlotte Boyett-Compo and Nancy Gideon. I give this story Five Hearts and recommend it highly. Enjoy!

MOON BRIGHT, MOON DARK
Genre: Fantasy, E-book
Thirteen years ago, Seer, Healer
and Warrior died. During the approaching solstice, the Three to Come—Egaria, Ashieria and Dian—are to replace the Three who died. They must fight a battle with the Three of Midran—evil men who will use any means, including
mind mages and murder, to stop them.
The action and adventure are nearly nonstop as each woman wages her own battle. The story is written as pieces of a puzzle to be put together; even though the Chosen Three have a common goal, they aren't aware of the women who came before them or the purpose of the men in pursuit.
The story-within-a-story formula
is rather stiff and makes Moon Bright, Moon Dark difficult to follow at times. But this is truly a story of good vs. evil, and it's worth it to stick it out to the end to witness how events unfold. ($5.50, dl $4.99)
Moon Bright, Moon Dark is a riveting story of faith, compassion, love, and betrayal. Janet Lane Walters deftly writes a compelling tale of love, second chances, and healing that leaves the reading wanting more.
