Beneath the Moon and Stars joint review

Family was such a big part of this. I was shocked when the fire happened and suddenly Tallen had no one. I knew that the same guy was gonna come back for her because everyone kept thinking about it. John finds Tallen and then it was like she had someone other then her adorable dog Wanderer . It was kinda like they both had no one and they were meant to find each other. I kept waiting for Tallen to give up on her revenge and get started with the quest Tassle

When Tallen and her family said no to Slevin, the son of a rich merchant, they didn’t realise just how severe the repercussions would be. After an attack instigated by the spoiled man who is used to getting his own way, Tallen is left injured and alone, she vows revenge on the man and all who helped him burn her home to the ground. Help came in the form of John, one of Slevins men who realised how wrong the situation was and instead of following orders he took Tallen away to protect her and let ...more

I guess this book is technically considered the first of a series, but it actually takes place after Quest of the Demon, which I reviewed here. I guess this new series is kind of like a companion to Quest of the Demon instead of being a sequel to it. Either way, I'd definitely read Quest of the Demon first because I think knowing what happens in that book is helpful, even if it may not be absolutely necessary.

It was interesting to read a book narrated by a character that we only got to see brief

Earlier in the year I read 'Quest of the Demon' by ML Sawyer, It was OK but didn't blow me away. I was contacted again by the author with this book. Tallen is in the first book but only briefly. When I met her as a character in the first book I wanted to know more and was disappointed she didn't feature again, so I accepted this book to read with enthusiasm.
I wasn't sure what I would think but was instantly blown away. For me, Tallen is the character that you should focus on, she grab

I first met Tallen in Quest of the Demon and remember liking her for the brief moment she was in the story. So when I learned that the sequel was going to be Tallen's adventure, I couldn't wait to dive in-- And what a story it was! The aftermath had a whole different vibe than the first book and I instantly connected with Tallen from the very start.
When Tallen's family sends back a potential suitor for Tallen, they had no idea what would soon happen next. Oh! My! Goodness! This part of the book

Tallen, a character briefly met in Quest of the Demon, is back and the center of attention in this new book by M.L. Sawyer. A much darker book than the original, Sawyer dives deep into the world of a young woman betrayed and looking for revenge. Though I felt terribly sorry for Tallen throughout much of the book, I found her to be an extremely strong, very well written character. And, though I didn’t always agree with her choices, I completely understand where she is coming from and how

Family to me is one of the most important things that I cherish throughout my life. Even my friends I consider my family. Everyone I love is considered my family. If by some chance my family is murdered I would want to seek revenge. No matter the cost.

I thought it was pretty heart breaking how at the very begginning of the book Tallen loses her whole family, except her faithful sidekick Wanderer. But she wo't be left on her own for long. John soon joins the two and with that addition a bond is

In Quest of the Demon, which was Darci’s story, we meet Tallen who is the main character for this story. We only have a brief look at Tallen in Quest of the Demon, but now we get in depth and things turn darker in Tallen.

Darkly compelling, Tallen is a page-turner! Full of action once some of the back story was taken care of, this story is unpredictable, yet well-balanced. I loved Tallen’s puppy, Wanderer, and thought he was a great addition. Very enjoyable with characters you care about and a gr

I reviewed Quest of the Demon the first book a while back here is the link. I liked Quest of the Demon and I think I liked Tallen even more. We were introduced to Tallen in Quest of the Demon when Darby and her were attacked by a man in Tallen's barn. I like Tallen a lot. In QOD I thought she was very young and naive but she really is a strong young lady. I just want to say that Ms.Sawyers writing has improved since her first novel! If your looking for a fun and adventurous read this is your cal ...more
