MOONSTONE PROPHECY (Sirens and Scales Anthology) by Carly Fall-a review
SIRENS AND SCALES Anthology links
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 2, 2018
When an astrological event opens up the seams of the universe, paranormal entities swarm the town of Saint’s Grove, some for noble reasons, others with evil intent.
In the sleepy town of Saints Grove, Virginia, Eric never expected to find anything but a good sandwich, friendly people, and a little rest and relaxation while trying to put his life back together.
When the seams of the universe open and Eric is attacked by a demon, Tirvu promptly saves him. He immediately recognizes her as the same woman who has been torturing him in his dreams by showing him images of death and destruction while begging him to follow her.
Tirvu is a dragon-shifter from another realm. The disappearance of a religious symbol from her world, the Moonstone, has caused a long war among her people. She’s taken it upon herself to recover it and return it, which will end the hundreds of years of fighting. However, she can’t do it without Eric’s help.
When he agrees to assist her in finding the relic, their search propels them into a world of vampires, werewolves and demons.
REVIEW: MOONSTONE PROPHECY by Carly Fall is part of the multi-authored SIRENS AND SCALES paranormal/fantasy anthology. This is computer programmer Eric, and dragon shifter Tirvu’s story line. MOONSTONE PROPHECY is loosely connected to, and follows the same time line as the October 2016 Saint’s Grove anthology. Some of the characters from the original anthology crossover for cohesion and familiarity.
NOTE: There are 26 paranormal/fantasy story lines included with the Sirens and Scales anthology. My review covers MOONSTONE PROPHECY only.
In the aftermath of a total lunar eclipse, wherein the alignment of the planets opened a portal to the otherworld releasing all mythical beings, the small Virginia town of Saint’s Grove will be host to an epic battle of good versus evil.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Tirvu and Eric), using present day and memories from the past MOONSTONE PROPHECY follows Eric as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. For months Eric has suffered with debilitating nightmares that have left our hero a shell of his former self. Fired from his job, Eric is ‘drawn’ to Saint’s Grove, Virginia where he will meet his future (and his past) with the arrival of a woman who has starred in all of his dreams. Enter Tirvu, a female dragon shifter, who claims Eric is the man that she loves-a man who disappeared three hundred years earlier in his search for the coveted Moonstone –a religious symbol from the world of the dragons. What ensues is the rebuilding romance between Eric and Tirvu as they go in search of a relic Tirvu believes will unite the dark and light, and the potential fallout as our couple is targeted by more than one supernatural power. A paranormal story line where racism meets specieism in a world at war, the Moonstone Prophecy is said to unite what was once pulled apart.
Carly Fall blends the past with the present; the supernatural with the mundane; the paranormal with small-town America, as her hero fights to save a world he knows nothing about. Tirvu is one of many supernatural beasts whose arrival has been timed with the alignment of the planets as she goes in search of the man that she loves. The premise is a flight into the fantastic; the characters are colorful, diverse and brave; the romance is a second chance fated by the planets and the stars. MOONSTONE PROPHECY is a captivating look at a love that has stood the test of time.
