Stolen Moon

3 Stars/5

Thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for giving me this book to review.

Katarina – a Royal Knight bound by honor and duty who steals a powerful relic from a sorcerer in a desperate attempt to save her kingdom from the clutches of a madman.
Ethan – a mercenary leader trapped between his growing attraction to Katarina and his responsibility to protect his friends from the evil pursuing her.
Zebulon – a malicious sorcerer waging war as though it’s a game, caring nothing for the lives he destroys in his quest for power.
Drawn together by a moonstone medallion – an indestructible relic with immense magical power.
Katarina steals the medallion from Zebulon and flees in the dead of night. Together with Ethan and his mercenaries, she struggles to stay one step ahead of the sorcerer and his minions in a race against time to save her homeland. Fierce battles, ravenous monsters, and bloodthirsty brigands – those are no surprise. But Katarina never dreamed her greatest obstacle could be falling in love.

Stolen Moon is a sweet and enjoyable YA fantasy novel which is the sequel to Shadow fire and is fast paced and full of action and light romance. However, there was a lot of parallels between this book and Shadow Fire as both the plot and romance were very similar.

Katarina is a very strong woman who has had a hard life but did not make her a harsh or uncaring person, but I did feel that she did not react liked most people would after their entire family just died as she seemed to get over it very fast. Ethan is the perfect hero as he is charming, protective and very loyal to his friends.

The romance is very sweet but the amount of time it took them to fall in love was even quicker and unrealistic than Shadow Fire. It was nice to see Ashlyn, Zane and some of the other characters we grew to love in Shadow Fire.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the Light Chronicles series and whatever else Wheaton writes next. I would recommend Stolen Moon to fans of the first book Shadow Fire.
