INFINITY UNLEASHED  is now available!


INFINITY UNLEASHED is a union of scenes experienced through Boulder and Infinity's eyes. When I wrote Infinity (book #1), there were lots of times that I really itched to be in Boulder's head, but he's a very tricky character. He is so elusive, that I wondered if he was going to let me into his head so that I could actually write INFINITY UNLEASHED.

When he did, I absolutely loved every minute I spent in Boulder's thoughts. My main goal was that I could do Infinity and Boulder and their intricate but incredible new love justice, and my hope is that you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

You can find INFINITY UNLEASHED at any of these online vendors:

  Kindle  |  Nook  |  iBooks


  Love and hugs! Stay tuned for the next installment of the Valkyries: Soaring Raven series, INFINITY RELOADED ….coming in 2014.

Spell FireSpell Fire, The Teen Wytche Saga #3 By Ariella Moon   Summary New school. New friends. New reputation. High school sophomore Ainslie Avalon-Bennett works hard to hide her Crazy Girl past. But as long as her best friend’s disappearance remains unsolved, she can’t shake the depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder that once landed her in a mental ward.   Ainslie’s tenuous control over her life shatters when her warring parents ditch her at Christmas. While they take a cruise to “work things out,” Ainslie must spend the holiday in Palm Springs with her aunt and uncle, owners of a struggling Mystery School and occult store. Plunged into the world of fire fortunes, dragons, entity eaters, and an ailing spell book, Ainslie is well beyond her comfort zone. Then she meets a boy who spikes her pulse and calms her OCD. But will she lose him once he discovers her past? Or will his deadly secret, hidden in plain view, be their undoing?
amazon blog Barnes and NobleariellaAuthor Ariella Moon Ariella Moon writes about magic, friendship, secrets, and love in her Young Adult novels, Spell Check, Spell Struck, and Spell Fire, Books 1, 2, & 3 in The Teen Wytche Saga. Ariella spent her childhood searching for a magical wardrobe that would transport her to Narnia. Extreme math anxiety, and taller students who mistook her for a leaning post, marred Ariella’s teen years. Despite these horrors, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at Davis. An author and shaman, she now lives a nearly normal life with her extraordinary daughter, shamelessly spoiled dog, and an enormous dragon.  
Social Media Website Social Media Blog Social Media Facebook Social Media GoodreadsSpell Fire Excerpt My body elongated, and I swore I grew six inches. Inside the cafe, there was no line. Another miracle. I paused beneath the fern‑painted ceiling fan and scanned the wall menu. I wasn't sure what I was looking for, but a weird craving fueled my search. The dragon exerted pressure between my shoulder blades, prompting me. "A Scorpion's Nest smoothie." Morningstar leaned over the high counter and gave me a onceover. "You feeling okay?" I licked my lips. "Absolutely." I had never tasted an orange juice, vanilla ice cream, and peanut butter combo, but I slapped the countertop and said, "I'm fine. Hit me." Morningstar tilted her head to one side and studied me. Oh — crap. Maybe I'm dragon drunk. I wiped the drool from the corner of my mouth stood straighter. I could do this. I could act normal and in control. Behind me, the dragon blew on my hair. I clawed back the stray locks. "Strong ceiling fan." Morningstar glanced up. I held my gaze steady on her face and tried to remember if the fan was actually on. I couldn't hear the whir of its motor or feel the stir of cool air. I can't feel anything. I went for distraction and slipped a ten across the counter. Morningstar leveled her gaze, then handed me my change. "I'll bring the smoothie to your table." "Cool." My eyes crossed. I pivoted and fell out of my right flip‑flop. Fortunately, the place was almost empty, and I didn't think anyone saw me stumble. Still, my face heated as I chose a table with plenty of space behind it for the dragon and my invisible wings. "Mind if I join you for a minute?" Morningstar asked when she brought my drink. "Please." I giggled, giddy with dragon energy. I was a bright, beneficent angel among earthlings. I was — as crazy as my parents feared.

So as many of you know, I love music. All of my novels are written with music blaring in the background and me typing away like a mad woman. And sometimes, much to my husband's amusement…I even break out in a dance routine that I think is Music Video worthyJ.

So, here we go…my Top 10 songs from the Infinity Unleashed Playlist….now…let’s rock.

Welcome Back, Infinity!!!

  Here it is Lovelies!! I can't wait for you to read every page of INFINITY UNLEASHED on December 10th!!
Release Date: December 10, 2013

Series: Valkyries: Soaring Raven series

Genre: New adult paranormal romance - due to graphic language and sexual content this book is recommended for readers 18+.
Synopsis: ***This is a new adult paranormal novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.*** Wild rage coursed through my veins.

Mason's diabolical plan had actually worked. In a matter of minutes he had kidnapped me, stripping me of everything...money, family and freedom. It was humbling, depressing, and damn infuriating but I refused to go down without a fight. I refused to be defeated.

Boulder would find me. I didn't know how, but I felt it deep in my soul. Boulder---the one man that made my body quake with just one look. It was madness. There was so much I didn't know about him. For that matter, there was so much that he didn't know about me…the evil darkness lurking inside me, waiting to be unleashed.

Could he accept me without judging?

That's where most men failed. Accepting the real me…but after years of hardening my heart, and sealing it behind a steel cage, I was ready to give myself to him freely, knowing that he planned to take everything I offered with both hands, until all I thought of...and wanted...was him.
