Today, having had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of Adelle Yeung’s book The Cycle of the Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn, which is book 2 by the way in her series due to be released March 25, 2016, I thought I’d share my review. So without further ado…
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Cycle of the Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn picks up where the first book (The Cycle of the Six Moons: The Starriest Summer) ends, and boy does it not lack in the action and adventure department. Miss Yeung, once again captures the mind and spirit of a fifteen-year-old girl in Michelle, in her thoughts and mannerisms as she continues her mission to end the Cycle of Six Moons before all is lost in the world of Starrs, while introducing the reader to creative cities and characters.
New places are explored, friendships deepen, the mystery surrounding Gediyon thickens, and a huge twist or two at the end will definitely have you begging for the next book in the series to be released. I recommend this book to all who enjoy sci-fi fantasy, magic, and loads of adventure. Just be sure to read The Starriest Summer first.
And there you have it. This truly was an enjoyable read, and if I’m being honest, it has a sorta anime feel to it, or at least that’s how it played in my head as I read it. Lol. Of course it could also have something to do with the little teaser trailers Miss Yeung released for the first book in the series The Cycle of the Six Moons: The Starriest Summer on her Youtube channel. Check them out here.
Also the cover for The Cycle of The Six Moons: An Eclipsing Autumn was released yesterday (which is when I had intended to post this post, but when you got a sick kid, what you want goes out the window). Looks awesome doesn’t it. Pre-order your copy here.
Deciding last minute to stay in Starrs, Michelle continues her epic adventure as Goddess. After all, learning how to save the world sure beats a year of pre-calculus. With her friends by her side, Michelle travels to a city of scholars to learn the lore of the Cycle of the Six Moons.
At first, the exotic retreat turns romantic, as Michelle spends her free time exchanging sweet letters with the crown prince, Jayse. But, during her studies, Michelle learns something that drastically changes her game plan. Powerful blood must be spilled to end the Cycle…blood that only runs through her veins and the prince destined to fall in love with her.
During a celebration honoring their enlightenment, Michelle and Jayse are whisked off to a rogue city as trophies of a tournament, where only the strongest can claim a taste of their blood. Gallant as ever, their guardian, Gediyon, enters to prevent harm to his friends. Unfortunately for the contestants, the Cycle’s latest trial prevents everyone from waking from a cursed slumber…
