AimeeKay Review: Moonsongs Series 3-5


~Book 3 - Dark Prelude~

Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. Unfortunately, a lot of on-the-job training is required to be a monster hunter, and unlike her computer repair business, this gig could literally kill her.

Dark Prelude finds the feisty protagonist, Jenny, searching for her best friend Marshal's missing father in the midst of a freak, West Texas winter storm. To survive the frigid night, she'll have to deal with a hated town rival, face a monstrous creature no Moonsong hunter has ever encountered before, and undo a mysterious curse. Can she keep everyone alive? If not, who will pay the ultimate price?




~Book 4: Dragon's Game~

Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. She has already faced a werewolf, witches, and a troll. But nothing could prepare her for her latest confrontation...

Dragon's Game, Moonsongs Book 4, finds Jenny out of her rural West Texas element, searching for an evil witch in an urban Houston nightclub. After attempting to help a handsome and mysterious stranger out of a jam, she finds herself on the run from a ruthless gang who are even more dangerous than they initially appear.

Forced into a twisted game of life and death, Jenny must navigate the complexity of a budding relationship, and somehow survive a night filled with unexpected horror and paranormal mystery.

Dragon's Game is approximately 14,000 words or 45 pages of humor, horror and paranormal mystery. It is the fourth volume of the Moonsongs Books, an ongoing series of New Adult, urban fantasy novelettes by author E.J. Wesley.


~Book 5- Vampire's Ball~
Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. Being a girl of action, she has found herself particularly capable when it comes to battling the werewolves, trolls, and other supernatural denizens lurking in the Texas night. Until now.

Vampire's Ball, Moonsongs book 5, finds Jenny and her best friend Marshal in their most harrowing adventure yet. Traveling by boat to an extravagant masquerade party located at a Galveston Island mansion, Jenny must parlay with an ancient vampire in order to secure the release of the dragon princes, Isis. The unexpected return of an old "friend" turns the evening into chaos, and leaves Jenny and company once again fighting for survival amidst a sea of supernatural foes.

Vampire's Ball is approximately 12,500 words of humor, horror and paranormal mystery. It is the fifth volume of the Moonsongs Books, an ongoing series of New Adult, urban fantasy novelettes by author E.J. Wesley.

AimeeKay's Thoughts (condensed review for all 3!):

So I have to say I’m still lovin’ the Moonsongs series! While I’m still not sure about the covers, the writing is amazing! Each novelette is a fast paced episode in the adventures of Jenny and Marshal.

I love Jenny and Marshal. The characters work well together and even though the books are told from Jenny’s pov, I still feel just as attached to him as I am to her. They have an awesome friendship and watching them interact is just plain fun.

I also love the authors writing style. Wesley pulls you in and keeps the pages turning. Plus the author somehow stuffs a ton of story into only a few pages. In these three installments Jenny and Marshal’s friendship is put to the test, Jenny might actually have met her match in the relationship department, AND there are dragons! DRAGONS! To name some of the new creatures that Jenny and Marshal are introduced to in their quest to translate her grandfather’s book and fulfill her legacy.

None of these is really stand alone, so if you haven’t read the first two books in the series I definitely recommend picking them all up and diving in! They are like chips, you can’t eat just one!

While you are here don't forget to go to the intro page to the whole series. There is a giveaway at the end that is international! Some great g/c's are being given away!

  3. I'm with Blodeudd -- those covers. Oy. And I hate it because I'm such a visual person that I judge a book by their cover, even if the inside is good. PSA to all authors: get yourself a GREAT cover design. Please.

  5. Dragons for the win! I will always read books that have dragons in them:) Candace really loves this series as well, and I'm just so impressed that the author is able to write complex and complete-feeling stories in such a short page length. Definitely need to make time for these!

  7. I'm so glad you enjoyed these too Aimeekay! They are each short but if you read them one after the other it starts to feel like reading a regular full length novel. One adventure after another!

    I added you to the schedule for a tour stop today. :)

  11. Thanks for all the compliment love!
    Sorry been out ta action for a while. I love being able to bring a great series like this into the limelight. If the covets do nothing else the definitely help to start a conversation and draw attention to the books themselves. As I said above if you haven't picked up the series I think its a great way to start off the new year.
