With the exception of a very few (for example Chelsea Fine’s “Sophie & Carter“) I get unabashedly irritated with short novels. Not all short novels mind you; the ones that have a beginning, middle and an end (aka novellas) aren’t so bad. But series novels that stop when they just get started drive me insane. So imagine my angst when I found out that I (excitedly) agreed to review an 89 page fantasy novel. (*gasp*)

Luckily for me (and Ms. Tyler since I tend to go off on people that annoy me) i

It's been a while since I've been asked to read & review anything by a new indie author. When I found an email in my inbox from Ms. Pavarti Tyler requesting a review for her Two Moons of Sera ebook launch I was ready.
I should say, I *thought* I was ready.

Two Moons of Sera is like mangas where you don't get the full story in once but in volumes. I have to say it was something new for me but it was exciting. It's like having a magazine each month which instead of gossip is a story.


Tyler writes about a world where people are born into water, earth ,fire and they are all entirely different creatures than mere humans. While it took me 2-3 chapters to get used to them, especially how the water people looked it had something that totally kept me in. Th

It makes no sense how GREAT this book is. I enjoyed this short story so much that I was so upset that I didn't read it slower than I already did. Once I realized that I was almost done with the book, I purposely slowed myself down even more just so I could savor every minute of it...but like all good things, nothing lasts forever. Serafay is a hybrid between Saulwets (which to my understanding are sort of like merpeople) and Erdlanders (which are humans, to my understanding. But I could be wrong ...more

Pavarti is my good friend, and I've been meaning to read her serialized novel forever. But as is typical, I'm always afraid to read my friends' books and put them off as long as possible. I mean what if I--gasp--don't like them?! :-(

Well, this wasn't a problem with 2MOS. Although, admittedly, it took me a little while to get into, once I was hooked, I was hooked. When introduced to any new world, we need time. With the introduction of Tor, the story felt like sci-fi Tarzan for a while (which isn

Fab read for a sunny afternoon. I'll admit this isn't usually a genre I would readbut I was engrossed from the first page. It was wonderfully easy to read with an interesting plot. I only put it down because I had to and I cannot wait to read vol 2. Two moons of Sera left me completely thirsting for more and I just wanted the story to continue.

I had fun reading this although there wasn't a whole lot of hot sex! This was really YA and a really different type of YA with never seen before fantasy creatures! Good romp for my vacation.

A Serial Story by Pavarti K. Tyler ~ A girl born of water and a boy born of fire; ensorcelled by the aspects of the land and a war neither of them understand. ~

“All the Fun of YA written for Adults.” There you go, the synopsis says right up front Two Moons of Sera is written in the style of a young adult tale but with concepts and ideas adult in nature. It is not because of gratuitous sex scenes or mindless acts of violence, although there are some pretty epic and violent moments which are a pi

Let me start with a confession. When the review opportunity for this series appeared, I knew I wanted to read it. When I find an author that I like (and my review of The Shadow on the Wall will attest) I tend to gather all of their work, like a collector of Hummel Figurines. I know they are there – and I will have them to look at later. So, as a reviewer I was provided with eBook copies in return for an honest review. And I am not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own responsib ...more

The story of this book takes place in a unique world with two very different sets of people. The Sualwets live in the sea, though they can survive on land as well for a prolonged period of time. The Erdlanders are more like us and live on land only. There is a war going on between them, and there is a lot of distrust and hatred. In the middle of this war, Nilafay, a Sualwet gets pregnant with an Erdlander’s child and hence Sera, her daughter has the characteristics of both. I loved the premise o ...more

With the publication of the novella Two Moons of Sera author Pavarti K. Tyler has launched a creative new series. Two advanced species live in the world of Two Moons of Sera. The Sualwet are a water people who live and breathe underwater but are capable of coming onto land. The Erdlanders are the people that live on the land. They are at war with each other, and the story opens with the Sualwet female Nilafay fleeing from her Erdlander captors. She does not escape.

Originally posted at A Bookalicious Story.

2MOS was a pleasantly quick, light, and sweet read. It got off to a slow start, describing the little cave in which Sera and her Sualwet mother lived in, their daily routines and stuff like that. And since Sera's world is confined to a cave, it wasn't very exciting. But her mother has her reasons to restrict Sera from wandering out into the world - Erdlanders are barbaric beings who experiment on the hairless, underwater creatures called Sualwet. A.k.a.

Some stories catch you right away. Two Moons of Sera is one of those stories. The file includes both parts 1 and 2, and when you finish them, you will be craving part three. Sera is a hybrid created from some kind of medical research done on her mother. Her mother is from a race of water-born (from eggs) people called Sualwets. They have a human body structure but they have no hair and can breathe under water. The other half of Sera's genetics appears to be Erdlander, but it is entirely possible ...more

Serafay is a teen unlike any other. She’s inquisitive and quite bright, able to learn at a rate that far surpasses that of her mother’s race. Yet there’s something that sets her apart from those whom she’s always interacted with.

You see, she’s a partial Sulawet, a water-dwelling race that has limited interaction with the world above. The other half of her genetics belongs to the Erlanders, a land-dwelling people who seek to exploit the very secrets of the Sulawet world.

My Review:

Serafay is sixteen years of age. She has been living in a secluded cove with her mother who is a Sualwet, a being of the sea. Sera is half Saulwet and half Erlander, a being of the earth (like a human). Her mother had been captured by the Erlanders and experimented on. She was able to escape, but only to later have a child of both worlds. Sera is considered an outsider to both races so she must stay in exile, however one day while on the beach of her c

When I first received the email from Pavarti about possibly being part of her blog tour for the first section of Two Moons of Sera, I have to admit I was hesitant. I haven't had a lot of good luck with the the self-published, e-book only types of review requests. I often end up marking them as DNF (did not finish). But after seeing how short the story was I agreed to at least give it a chance. I am really glad I did.

Sera short for Serafay is a 16 year old girl, she is a genetic anomaly as she describes herself, a cross breed between erdlander ( = human character) and sualwets ( merpeople - aquatic creatures). Not very much does Sera know of the life of both these cultures, she and her mother a sualwet have been living isolated since she was born.

She's never felt like she belonged anywhere; the presence of hair separates her from the Sualwet people and her webbed toes from the Erdlanders. When she meets a man with a strange trait of his own, she realizes just how alone she's been. His companionship comes ...more

This first installment of Two Moons of Sera is very much worth the price of $0.99 (and more) for just this installment, never mind the fact that it buys you the additional installments as they release as well.

It's short, but it does a great job setting up the world that Serafey lives in and setting up her character, giving her and her mom some background and introducing Tor into the picture as well. I found the characterization of Sera to be well done so far and expect it to continue as the stor

I LOVE this book! Sera is half Sualwet and half Erdlander. She lives with her Sualwet mother, Nilafay, and is basically shunned by the Sualwet community. Her mother lives on land with Sera as Sera can only be under water for a shorter time than Nilafay Her mother goes scavenging for treasures which she brings back to Sera. These they use for their home and with these Sera also learns the Erdlander language. They have lived like this for 16 years, with Nilafay being Sera's only real company.
