Empress Reece (Hooked on Books)
You've got to be kidding me. I just used my free book of the month for this and the story was, at best, about 10 pages long. It took me a whole 5 minutes to read. I was just saying too how Girl on the Moon was loaded with material, if that's how this book was, it wouldn't be so bad but it wasn't like that at all- essentially nothing happened. I feel cheated lol- What a rip off!

Too short , leaves too many questions unanswered. Would not recommend. Buy Girl on the Moon, it's a good book and provides most of the answers. It also adds a few new twists.

I was expecting a short story, but not one so abbreviated. I wouldn't have minded if a bit of material from Girl on the Moon had been used to make Lost Moon stand alone better. If Peo hadn't returned to Earth there would have been no "Girl" novels, but I didn't grasp from the short story how disappointed Peo must have been to change her plan to die on the moon or how jerked around she must have felt by her daughter.

Great prequel to series.

Yes, a tidbit of info....

This was an insight to "Girl on the Moon"
I was harsh in my review of, but I have a chance to say yes both good reads, great characters, shockers, & the ups downs sideways and everything in between will keep you wondering who you should be cheering for. Space came alive & Jack McDonald Burnett can put you in space without getting out of your favorite chair.

Good

This story was very weird to me. It echos my own relationship with my daughter. I could hardly finish it and then kept rereading the last few paragraphs over and over. Am Ithe only mother with this selfish know it all daughter? It must not be. Thank you for writing this for me.

A quick fun read. If you want something to breeze through to get a feel for an author's style this is a great idea. A nice bit of a story that you can read without needing to read the Girl on the Moon novel.

I read an early version of this, back when it was the first chapter of the book. Don't read it if you don't already have the book in hand, you'll go nuts ;P

Great short

A great little short story that clears up some of Peo's life. For as short as it was it had a lot of impact. I would like to learn a little more about her past and how she became so rich and powerful.
