Review: Stolen Moon by Kimber Leigh Wheaton

Stolen Moon (Light Chronicles #2) 
by Kimber Leigh Wheaton 
Publication date: August 19th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult

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.

My Thoughts: Again, Kimber Leigh Wheaton, is an amazing writer and it was easy for me to get lost in the beauty of her details. The way she writes has you taking a moment to close your eyes to really appreciate what it is you're reading. The characters are easy to fall in love with, each and everyone has their own struggles to overcome making you, as the reader, appreciate them even more. A great follow-up to the first book in the series, Shadow Fire, but really I could stand on its own without even reading the first book. The only complaint I have is that the plot was very similar to Shadow Fire and I was able to guess how things would turn out, but I would read it all over again anyways because of the engaging picture the author paints for you.

Honestly my favorite character is Caleb, the young boy with magical abilities that the group saved in the first book, to see how much he has grown and the fact that Katarina is able to win him over when he rarely lets people in is heart warming. Stolen Moon takes place four years after Shadow Fire, giving you a glimpse into the lives of your favorite characters from the first book and what they are up to now. I love this series and the how well written it is and cannot wait until the next book comes out!! 

Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a bestselling YA/NA author with a soft spot for sweet romance. She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three dogs, four cats, and lots of dragons. No, she doesn’t live on a farm, she just loves animals. Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, videogames, superheroes, villains, and chocolate—not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a chocolate covered superhero!) She currently lives in San Antonio, TX but has been somewhat a rolling stone in life, having resided in several different cities and states.

  1. Thanks for reviewing, Jessica! Book three will feature Caleb as the romantic hero. He really manages to come into his own three years later.

  2. Thanks for being on the tour, Jessica! This sounds like a very character driven read and I'd like to meet Caleb for myself! :)
