Book Tour: The Mirror of the Moon by Travis Simmons

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:

I found this book to be as well written as the first in the series. I am still engrossed with the characters and their journey. They are all really well written individuals with their own unique personalities. I enjoy watching them grown and mature as the journey proceeds.

Book two picks up right where book one left off. I suggest you read the first book if you haven't already. As I said in my review of the first book, it takes a little while to get into it for some people, but don't give up. It is worth the patience it may take to get through the first chapter or so.

This second book was easier for me to get into, since I had read the first one. I was eager to find out what was going to happen to Amber. I was definitely ready for Grace to tell them the secrets she knows about all of them.

As with the first book, there is a lot going on throughout the book and the author handles it well. I have a habit of sitting down a book and picking it up days later because I got caught up in another book. I would recommend you not do that with these books. I always had to spend some time catching myself back up, because there is so much going on. That isn't a complaint, just a helpful hint.

All in all, I recommend this book to fantasy lovers. It has everything you could want in a good fantasy book. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

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.
