The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon - Book Review


The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon is now available on its own!

The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon (Heirs of Magic #0.5)
 by Jeffe Kennedy

What is it about:
Shapeshifter Prince Rhyian doesn’t especially want to spend the Feast of Moranu at Castle Ordnung. Among other things, his childhood playmate and current nemesis, Lena, will be there... 

Princess Salena Nakoa KauPo nearly wriggled out of traveling to Ordnung, but her mother put her foot down declaring that Lena can suffer through a feast and a ball for one night. Even if that Rhyian, insufferable Prince of the Tala, will also attend. 

But this year, Moranu’s sacred feast falls on the long night of the crystalline moon—and Rhy and Lena discover there’s more than a bit of magic in the air.

What did I think of it:
This novella is the prequel to the Heirs of Magic series and next to it being a wonderful wintery romance with a Happy For Now ending it introduces you to the characters of the series.

Those familiar with the Twelve Kingdoms and the Uncharted Realms series will recognize the parents of our heroes and heroines and can delight in seeing how people have fared through the years.

I loved getting to know Lena, Ryian and the others. There are some really fun moments as well as more serious ones as we discover why Lena and Ryian are at odds with each other.

Although the book ends with a HFN for Lena and Ryian you know there are things they need to address, and there's a cliffhanger ending hinting at trouble to come as well, so you better get your hands on The Golden Gryphon and the Bear Prince as well, because you'll want more!

Why should you read it:
It's a wonderful Fantasy Romance read.

(previously released in Under a Winter Sky)
