Book Review: The Mirror of The Moon by TRAVIS SIMMONS

Title: The Mirror of The Moon

Pub. Date: 03/15/2013
Publisher: Wyrding Ways Press
Format: E-Book
Pages: 247
ISBN#: 9781300696
Series: The Revenant Wyrd Saga #2

With the death of one of the companions, Grace must answer for the secrets she’s kept. The path before them is ever lengthening in their quest for Amber. There are changes they all must face, and when Joya enters her trials of sorcery, danger lurks around every corner. The power within Angelica and Jovian is strengthening and with it comes confusion. What are they? It is painfully obvious nothing like them has ever existed before. Why is it at times they seem more one person than two separate people? With all the mystery surrounding their latent power, Angelica stumbles upon a passage in a book of sorcery indicating she is evil. Could she be the Mask prophecy speaks of? Is she destined to turn against her own flesh? To make matters worse, the Well of Wyrding (a giant well that controls all sorcery) has been breached and wyrd itself is spiraling into chaos.

My Review:   
To my surprise I actually enjoyed most of this book, was not to sure in the beginning if I would finish it or not. I had not read the first of this series and to be truthful may have to go back and start at the beginning. 

The author Travis Simmons does have a way of sucking you into the stress and struggles of the character Grace. And for that I was interested in finding out how this new book would end. And I was not disappointed. The other characters within this tale are all in some ways so different but in some ways the bonds and the mystery of their powers bind them together.  The good vs. evil is always wound up in so many different ways and outcomes depending on what you read into or how life is that you find yourself routing for ones you may or may not think you would. 

Given this book is just coming out to all on March the 15, I will not go any further with in the story. Except for the, to me anyway, kind of slow start, I find myself wanting to start from the beginning and very possibly and most likely giving this book another closer read in the future. 

And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:

Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I did receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.


About the Author:

I have been writing since I was 14. I began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off I 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?" I always knew there was a "before" and as I started wondering about it I got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as I discovered the names for my characters a whole story about them emerged.

I started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and I am very happy I did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride.

I live in a remote part of upstate New York and honestly just hoofing around my neck of the woods gives me a ton of inspiration for my novels. I love research, and I love speculating on different ideas and theories.
