The idea for this series is interesting, and it's a shame the stories aren't longer. I may check out other books by the author in the future. I reserve 5-star ratings for things that I enjoy so much I can barely put them down, and this book could have gotten 4 stars, but the nook edition, at least, includes what I would call "text speech" (substituting "Oh my god" with OMG, and "by the way" with btw). They're not peppered throughout the story, but, for me, even once is too much (unless the story ...more

Mirie needs to watch some baby prince because he might posses a mystical artifact that could destroy the world. She believe she and her partner Jack aren't noticed by the prince. But who knew that he was only appearing where she could see so he could see her, and claim her as his mate. Mirie is completely wrong about the history of her past, and because of that, it bites her in the ass as she tries to retrieve the artifact stolen from the prince. Can she survive?

Contains Spoilers!!!!

This was the best of the 3 stories in the Moon trilogy, partly because it is also the longest giving you more of a chance to get to know the characters but mostly because Mirie is so awesome. Discovering she is a long lost elven princess betrothed to a prince does not in any way alter her down to earth no bull personality or her kick ass take care of herself ( and everyone else)abilities. While there is an element of insta-love in her relationship with the prince it is not over-done (and somewha ...more

Mirie works for the Committee. They have been sent to watch the Samson Anarion. He was an elf prince and she found it easy to watch him. Jack, her partner, and Mirie watched as he went through his exercise on his patio. She seen noticed something on his belt and seen that is where he had the Eyes of the Amber Moon. Suddenly he was watching her. Jack is able to escape his guards but Mirie is not. She ends up being shot and wakes up in another dimension.

Mirie had never told Jack that she was not h

(more like 2.5 stars = pretty good since it was free) I am doing an A to Z challenge using only Kindle freebies to try and whittle down the virtual TBR pile bloated by indescriminant one-clicking, so I read all three of Bevill' Moon Trilogy. Amber Moon was actually quite a bit better than the first Black Moon, but I was surprised by the shift from shifters, um well the change in focus from the cat shifters of the first book to the elven court in this one. The first book was really thin storywise ...more

I had read the first one and enjoyed it a lot. Now, after getting my big surprise that the author is a woman (I really didn't imagine so while reading), found out that this one is really better than "Black Moon". I didn't find as many mistakes as other reviewers did, and I really enjoyed this story a lot more than the first one.
I found that this story has more time-coherence (I found the first one too fast-paced) and I was really pleased when this story was set apart from the first one without l

Marie kicks butt in Amber Moon

Objective: To retrieve the eyes of the Amber moon.
Problem: Prince Samson A nation
Marie's orders from the Committee were clear: get the artifact back and don't make any waves in the Elvish Court. Simple right? Wrong! Marie gets caught by the prince's guards and if that wasn't enough she has the hots for the Prince. Things get even more crazy when Mirie finds out that her origins were a lie and she and A nation are linked in more ways than one.

Mirie an agent of the secretive committee is assigned to stalk...I mean observe a hunky elvish prince who has the powerful possible world ending artifact but the problem is like all good short novels, her target is just to cute.....mmmm

I've read all three of the moon trilogy's & this is defiantly my favorite, mostly because of the female lead mirie. I like how there's a little reference to first book & picks up what was left out. But was a bit disappointed there was no real lust or roman

I was really hoping that this book would be better than the first one, but sadly, I was wrong. In fact, I think it was worse than the first for a couple of reasons. 1) the characters used internet lingo like, "btw, blah blah blah" and "wtf, Mirie?" that's terrible form and should be kept out of novels (but, who are we kidding, these aren't real novels). And 2) the author's analogies just got worse. She used "curiouser and curiouser" and something along the lines of "She felt like she was in Oz w ...more

Here I thought it couldn't get better in this series and I know it's 4 stars,but that was because of grammatical errors, but other than that I enjoyed the story. Mirie is a committee agent and her partner Jack who has a bad taste for paranormals doesn't know she not what she portrays herself to be. She was sent to retrieve the eyes of the Amber Moon that could destroy the world and the sexy Elven prince standing on his patio looking like sin himself has it. Prince Samson Anarion knows the sexy a ...more

This is book 2 in the Moon Trilogy and I have to admit that I was so sad not to have more of the characters from book 1. However, I'm just as intrigued by the new characters in this book. The heroine is kick ass and can take care of herself. I like that the family relationships presented in this book are not traditional and it's not a case of lovey dovey perfection (cause neither is real life!)
I only rated this a 3 vs 4 stars due to the fact that I was genuinely surprised that the book 1 charac

Second book in the Moon series involves a woman named Mirie who works for the Committee, and her partner Jack Drake. They have learned that the 2nd relic( The Eyes of Amber Moon) is with a elf named Anarion who is the prince of the High Court. Mirie is spotted by him and is captured. She is taken to thier realm and come to find out that she is not entirely human and learns about her past and promises made for her. I dont want to say too much and spoil the story. I enjoyed this story as I enkoyed ...more

This second enstallment does not follow the characters of Black Moon however it is in connection. I enjoyed this one very much but I would like to learn more about the world that is the setting for the Amber Moon. I just hope that they all tie together in one big final finish. The one thing I did have trouble with was the names. In my head they sound one whay when I am sure they are really pronounced a differnt way. So maybe a table with all the characters (because my brain apparently cannot fol ...more

Ok, it wasn't clear to me in the first book, Black Moon, that there were, in fact, 3 artifacts which together can destroy the world. They were only searching for one.
In this novella Mirie is a human but a descendant of some kind of Norse supernatural - or so she believes. She is an agent of the secret committee who safeguards the world from black magick. Her job is to watch an elvish prince who is believed to have the second of the three artifacts.
Mirie feels an instant connection with the princ

I really enjoyed this book, esp. Mirie and her snarky comments. Pretty much the same back bone as the first story...they met, they were destined to be together, they fell in Love, saved the world for another day. But it didn't come off as a rushed read. It was still quick and fun but seemed more fleshed out. Why i thought it would be a continuation of the first book, I don't know and it was not. New characters, different realm but connected by the Committe and the need to prevent a Moon Artifact ...more
Kelly
With all new characters, this story focuses on the 2nd artifact that the Committee is trying to get their hands on. I think this one is stronger than the first story, in part because the world and hierarchy of the elves seems better laid out. I liked that Mirie had to work through her identity issues on top of falling in magical love and solving crime in the Elvish realm. Fast and fun, the new characters expanded the world nicely and kept the storyline moving.

This free not-so-short story just didn’t do it for me. I read it because I was interested in what would happen in the second book but I kind of regret it now. It started off very well but then towards the middle and the end it was like the author got lazy. It was longer than the first one and it was filled with confusing filler that I guess the author wasn’t used to and it just didn’t do it for me. I felt like some parts were skipped and I didn’t attach to any of the characters. There were too m ...more

While I still really liked this second book in the trilogy it seemed to end too abruptly for me. There was no romance. Sure you could feel the attraction between Mirie and Anarion, and there was the prophecy stuff, but no "courting" type activities. The book seemed alittle rushed, but I still really did like it. I liked all the characters, and really liked the supporting characters in this book. Asta and Jack are a hoot, and I look forward to reading more about them in the final installment of t ...more
Marcy Prybil
This one was much better than the first! I feel like we are watching this author develop her skills. The first story was horribly written, but this one was much better. Again, there was many errors, but I was able to trudge through it, as it was a short story.
The character development was a tad better, but I would still have loved to have read more about Mirie's background, as well as Anarion.
I will continue reading her stuff, but only because I havent loaded the books onto my nook that I really

You would think, looking at the tags-shelves I've chosen (cats, elves, fantasy, magick, were-beings)that this book would be right up my alley. Yet I really couldn't feel connected to anyone or anything in this book.

Though it is part of a series, the main characters and settings were changed drastically. The only uniting factors are the three artifacts and the groups looking for them.

Still, as quick as it is to read this series, I will finish up with Silver Moon today.

This short story would make a wonderfull full length novel.
It is better than the first book in this trilogy, the author gives us a little more detail and the story is not so rushed. But a full length novel about Mirie and Anarion would've been so much more !
As it is a Trilogy, I expected to read more about the 2 main charachters from the first book. They are mentioned a few times, but that's it.
But all in all a very nice read for a freebie.
Karri Montgomery
starting out rough. still not great. will finish cuz it is free and so short...
update- finished with the book. These books were ok. They were free and worth reading. Although I wouldn't say the "best books I ever read". I do think be cause they are so short that things have to come together quick. And for a short story they are not a waste of time. I think this writer will get better the more she writes and I liked this book the best of the 3.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first. A little disappointed that it didn't continue with the same characters as the first, it took me a while to get into but once I did it was an enjoyable wee read despite the main character being a really annoying 'girl power' type. Not too sure if I will bother reading the final novella in the series, perhaps in a few weeks? The ending didn't leave me wanting the next part read as soon as possible.
Liz
Again, I'm disappointed by this author. In the version I downloaded there was so many errors in grammar I felt like a teacher correcting a paper, and I'm not even that great with English! I suppose these mistakes are the editors but it's reflects poorly on the entire novella.
I do like this part better than the first, and hope the third and final tops them both...

The second in the series by C L Bevill and you're swept away from Were-whatevers and into the world of Elves and other shapeshifters. This book isn't as "descriptive" as the first one and stays mainly as a love story with paranormal extras.

Fast, punchy with a sassy heroine, you meet old favourites and are introduced to new ones.

Loving this series.
Brian Deegan
After reading Black Moon (Moon Trilogy #1) I was expecting more of the same (werewolf, shape shifters, etc) and if I had read the reviews and known it was about elves and magick then I might have given it a miss, as fantasy is not normally me. That said I persevered and found it not to be a bad read :) and free as well...

Christy
Awesome short story. I really enjoyed the complexity of the story, especially considering its length. This book, along with the first in the series could have been elaborated on more to be a full novel. I have really enjoyed this series and will be starting the third book right away! Great characters, again!
Michelle Louise
Part II is even better than Black Moon! We are dealing with Elves! Whoooo! I thought the history of the Elves and history between Mirie and Anarion is just wonderful. I was shockingly surprised by the really bad relationship with Mirie and her mother. Anyhoo this book is just amazing, again it's a must read! :D
Kristy
Part 2 of the Moon trilogy about otherworldly creatures trying to stop the three deadly artifacts from joining together to destroy the world. This one is very different from part 1. No werejaguars in this one...that was sad. But this was still a very well-written story, and quite interesting.
