An ARC was thrown my way and I read this book, and the following is my own thoughts of the story.

This is the start of an addictive, magical new series, from a talented author who has created a Realm that is only privy to others; witches, vampires, and werewolves to name a few. The story, itself, is full of surprises, keeping you on your toes. I never knew what was coming, I was fascinated by the Realm, with it's two moons, that let shifters shift at will & with a sun that won't burn up vampi

A fantastic book that will rock the paranormal world! Love, love, loved it! As soon as I started reading, I was quickly immersed in the pages. Tialanna is a kick-ass heroine who has no clue about the true powers she possesses. Chandler is one smokin' hot vampire who can bite me any day. There's a battle coming from unknown threats that they must be ready for.

This has it all, from the mind-blowing sex to the supernatural creatures. The secondary characters play a big role in the overall plot whi

Wow, just wow! This book is just as good as cotton candy, and I say that for many reasons!

Magic, mayhem, action, vampires, witches, and so much more came together in this steamy paranormal and fantasy book. One could not hope for anymore than what this book has to offer.

This book was addictive, and hard to put down. I have been up all night with this book, because I could not, well I could, but I didn't put the book down because it was to exciting not to finish in one sitting. If I would have t

T.A.Moorman has done a amazing job in building a solid world! You will feel a part of the realness. The writing definitely is talent,you are pulled in from the start to the characters and world created. The characters feel real they have flaws and personalities that draw you to them.

This is the first I have read from T.A. Mormon. I was not disappointed. It had everything I look for in a book. The romance was off the charts. The twists and turns had me guessing. The only bad thing is that it ended way to soon, I was not ready to leave the world that hooked me in. I love the chemistry between characters. The flow was awesome. I'm dying for more to come, as this was a perfect setup. I just don't know who I rooted for more Chandler or Demon Bran, but there was plenty of love t ...more

The wussy witch, Bran takes her on a first date to a place she actually wanted to see, a sort of paranormal carnival. This is where all hell breaks loose. Tia's life changes forever. Wit ...more

This is the first story I have ever read by T. A. Moorman and I was Bewitched!

Here is a Tantalizing Tid-bit to Savor:

“A wicked grin began spreading across my lips. “This, I can do.” When Bran arrived, I had on a pair of tight red leather pants, slits on both legs coming up to my knees. Red, knee-high combat boots with small diamond skulls going up the sides, with a five-inch steel stiletto heel. A sheer, white, long-sleeved blouse, with a V-neck all the way down to my waist band, over a red seq

I loved this book so much! I am a Paranormal head and had been wanting to read this book for some time now. In this book you have everything you could want, Vampires, Werewolves, Fae, witches... everything
Can you imagine being forced to marry someone because your parents think it will be a good union... yea.. that is what Tialana is facing. Of course she isn't having it!
The same people that she thought that she could trust are the same people that betray her and she has to learn that not everyth

Tialanna had no idea her life was about to change. Being forced to be with one man when she loves another was not the only change. Going on a date with her soon to be husband only took her into a different life and meeting family she had no idea she had

Great world building and rich characters, graphic language and raw sex, intriguing mystery and damaging betrayal can all be found in Book 1 of The Underlayes: Witch Wars, a new series from talented author T.A. Moorman. The paranormal species have all separated into different realms in The Underlayes and Tialanna has grown up thinking that she is a princess of the Witch realm. She’s in for a rude awakening when she is kidnapped by a demon (some readers may find the subsequent scene disturbing) an ...more

I found Witch Wars Underlayes Book One to be a dark and fun read full of surprises and twists. The author T.A. Moorman draws the reader into a nightmarish world full of diverse characters and their complex but interesting family tree. The main character faces many tough situations and by the end of the book the reader is left wanting more and more. A good way to set up a series. I look forward to more from the author and this series.

Witch Wars grabbed me from the very beginning and left me wanting more in the end. It’s original, dark, sexy, and full of off handed humor. Although, I found some positive and negative things about the book, I cannot wait for the second book. Now for the honest review….
The bad:
As many have mentioned, there needs to be better editing. I can overlook some grammar and editing issues if it doesn’t detract from the overall meaning and content. However, a good editor would have made this an excellent

Prepare to be swept away by a perfect adventure fantasy for anyone with a big imagination. Witch Wars is full of adventure, remarkable characters, dangerous quests, and of course love.
One thing I look for in books is original, unpredictable storytelling because I like a book that pulls me in from the first page and doesn't let me go.Witch Wars is a beautifully written book with perfectly crafted sentences that flow without conscious thought. From the very first chapter I was swept into Tialanna

This was a great start to what should be a fun series to read. The author did a good job creating her world and setting it up so the reader could visualize being a part of it. The dialog between the characters is realistic and serves to move the story along. I especially liked the conversations between the parents. (I've heard conversations like that in real life.) There are some awesome fight scenes. The author took the time to create a whole scene and I even found myself fighting along with th ...more

The blurb about this book drew me in. I love everything witch, vampire, werewolf and demon alike.
The storyline was great. I fell in love with the characters. ..Yes, even the demon. There is plenty of mystery, intrigue and magic to keep me engaged in the story, wondering what was going to happen next.
Unfortunately, this book needs editing. There are many instances of dropped words, misspellings or wrong sentence structure.
If edited, this story would be unstoppable.

Hands down favorite read of 2016! Vampires, Demon, and all my favorite supernatural creatures thrown into one book. Couldn't put the book down and it ends on a cliffhanger but I'm so looking forward to next installment of the Underlayes series

An enjoyable well written story.

I was browsing Booksprout when I came across this book. I love a good urban fantasy with its blend of magic, demons and paranormal beings. I haven't read anything by this author before so wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the blurb certainly caught me interest. Overall this is an enjoyable and fast paced story, with a likeable heroine and a decent plot. Whilst my review even to me seems negative, please remember I think this is a good story and would recommend

Ok, so I loved this book, the first half of the story in particular was amazing and left me hooked, more hooked than I have been on a book for a long time. It was fast paced, exciting, engaging and I really did like the characters and it left me unable to put the book down.

The second half of the boom was also a fantastic read, however my reason for giving it only 4.5 stars not 5 is because I felt parts of the story were rushed and there was almost to many plot lines to follow. I feel l

When you become a Mom, you begin to put yourself last, and your combat boots begin to collect dust. Going to your child's PTA meetings in full Gothic, especially industrial, regalia is pretty much frowned upon. Especially by your own children, and your teens would die of a heart attack. But, one should not have to completely stop being themselves, uniqueness is greatness. So all of that darkness i ...more
