Loved the writing here and felt like I got completely swept away into this amazing world! Can't wait to read the next book!

I am FREAKING OUT. How did I not see that coming? Who would have seen that coming? Holy mother of crap, how could this happen? Next book, next book, next book, next book—give me the next book now, now, now—

As you can see, this book has incited some fangirling. Because of Reasons, I didn’t start it until recently plus I took awhile to sit down and read it once I had it. Once I did…well. Please see the opening paragraph for answers. Without a doubt, this book shall be awarded a seat o

Windswept, Book II of the Moonlit trilogy, picks up where Moonlit left off.

We have action and intrigue from the beginning.

Tansy has changed, but she is still determined to save Lucas at all cost. Is he still alive? How far would you go to save soeone you love?

Tansy has been set up and is running for her life. She has been betrayed and is confused, not knowing who she can trust. Jaycee is still by her side. Can she be trusted? Is she meant to fulfill the prophecy?

I'm giving this book 4.5⭐️

Let me just jump in and say this is a thrilling read with great twists and a mysterious plot…book 2 of the Hightower Trilogy did not disappoint. A gripping story that leaves you on your knees begging for more. (*Ahem* ...clifhanger 😅)

Tanzy is caught between two worlds with no clear way out….either die or doom the world. Seemingly alone and abandoned this book starts out on a rather heart wrenching note. With loads of emotional and physical damage to deal with, but no ti

There is something about this author's voice that sounds so heartfelt, so raw, so authentic, that regardless of the content, the story still rings true. I read the first book of the series, 'Moonlit', even though I really didn't think it would be my kind of book. I am not into horses or riding, but I picked it up anyway because the back of the book sounded intriguing. I fell -- hook, line, and sinker -- into the world that author Jadie Jones created, and couldn't wait to get my grabby hands on b ...more

***4.5 stars/5 stars***

NOTE: I probably would've finished this faster, but have a lot of reading I am catching up on.

I love how Windswept starts off where Wildwood left off – that made me dive right back in to the story (head first) and get lost in the world again.

Again, Jones did shock me with some twists and turns I did not see coming – and that is ALWAYS refreshing for me with all the predictable reads (or as my hubs calls it – my ‘predicting super power’ – tv shows, movies, and books). So

Windswept picks up exactly where Wildwood leaves off, like literally the same scene. It starts off with a bang, and it ends with a bang. For me, it brought me right back to the story, where I feel like I just read Wildwood yesterday. I really love the way that Jadie Jones writes, it flows seamlessly from scene to scene and even from character to character. There is only one POV, but there are clear differences in every single character, and there is also a difference in our main character, Tanzy ...more

so windswept picks up right were book one left off the first part of this book was mostly Tanzy discovering more about her powers and the Unseen world and who she can and cannot trust the second half of the book was more action packed.I actually felt really frustrated for these characters especially Tanzy because they are dealing with a bad guy thats 6 steps ahead of them!. We get a whole bunch of new characters (not all of them are as trustworthy as i thought) and of course the cliffhanger endi ...more

*I received a copy from the publisher. This does not affect my review.*

While I was excited to start this one, I was a bit slow to really start reading it. This is one of those that sounded amazing, but since I hadn't heard anything about this series or author before, I wasn't quite sure it would live up to the potential. It does! While I'll admit, I've always loved this kind of story, and it likely isn't for everyone, I loved how unique and original the writing is! If you enjoy horses and mythol

Another well-told story by Jadie Jones! Hidden worlds, secrets, and complicated relationships, what more can you ask for in YA fantasy? I’m not usually a fan of the “chosen one” trope, but I like how dark and twisted the role Tanzy is “chosen” for turns out to be. A cast of new characters are introduced in this second book in the series, and my favorite is the deeply loyal and witty Jayce. She’s the smart-mouthed, heart-of-gold character I often find myself drawn to, and I would certainly want h ...more

I was given a copy of this book for my unbiased opinion.

Another delightful book by Jadie Jones. Betrayed by Vanessa, Tanzy is on the run and trying to survive while her foes are one step ahead of her. She is still having a bit of an identity crisis, but the more she learns about Spera the more she can be herself again. Who can she trust and is anywhere safe?

I enjoyed following Tanzy's story with a delightful side of Jayce. I've been following Jadie's book since the first version of her Wildwood

Windswept picks up where Wildwood ended, which is great for diving you right back into the storyline! However, I do wish it was written the same, as some of the details were different which threw me off a bit! It's one of the main reasons I give 4 stars as it doesn't quite flow from one book to the other. I think you would only notice this if you were reading Windswept directly after Wildwood as I did!

Overall, this book is thrilling and enrapturing, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you o

Much more action packed than the first novel, the storyline picks up immediately on the very first page. Just as many sudden twists and turns that keep you guessing and wondering who you can believe and who can be trusted. Great addition to the trilogy and cannot wait to see how it all ends.

From the groundwork laid in Wildwood, Ms. Jones spirals the reader deeper into an intricate landscape, an immersive melding of two worlds.

The tone is darker as Tanzy faces trials. Without spoilers, there’s nothing else I can say. You must read Wildwood first.

There is a prophecy about Tanzy relating to the Seen and Unseen. There are those that want to help her fulfill the prophecy and those that want to kill her in any way possible. Tanzy is trying to figure out her own powers but when her blood is infected she struggles just to control her own body. Will she be able to fulfill the prophecy or are her enemies going to win.

I just love this series. Tanzy is such a strong girl and has come so far since Moonlit. I love that she has become such a bad ass
Jadie Jones blew me away with this one. In this sequel to Moonlit, she spins the mystery even more, gradually revealing more pieces of the puzzle. The main character Tanzy has already had her world turned upside down twice in the first installment, so here in book two she gets a little more stability. At last Tanzy meets others like her and there is the requisite training sequence. But Tanzy learns that caring about others is a liability too and her enemies are more than willing to cause collate ...more

Never did I expect to get wrapped up in a world of Seens and Unseens, but Jadie Jones sucked me in again with the sequel to Moonlit! In Windswept, Tanzy's world is further revealed and nothing is as it seems. Seriously, trust no one! The action scenes fall together in a way that brings them to life ... every punch, stab, flip and fall. And, once the action scenes started, I couldn't stop reading. It was like I hopped on a rollercoaster and there was no chance of getting off until the end!

Jadie Jones builds upon her first novel, MOONLIT, with the same stunning prose, exotic imagery, and dark, complex characters. Tanzy continues her journey, learning more about the world she came from, and the bloody terrors her future holds. The beings that inhabit the Jones’ Unseen world will stay with you well past the last page on the book. Let WINDSWEPT sweep you away.

The second book in this fantastic series, and I liked Windswept almost as much as the first book, Moonlit. They both ended in cliffhangers, so be sure you have the whole series before you start reading (I actually don't have the 3rd book so I'll need to get it soon!).
