Just after Joanna gives birth, Royce kisses Kassandra, leaving both stunned by their reaction. Kassandra informs Royce she sees multiple futures, but the individual has opportunities to change the most likely path that might occur. Because of further unrest, Kassandra's other brother Atreus orders her to come home. Alex puts his sister, his wife, and his daughter on an Akoran ship accompanied by Royce.
As Royce overcomes his bad memories of his imprisonment on Akora, he and Kassandra fall in love. However, the rebels continue to cause havoc insisting on a return to tradition while another group of protesters wants a more open government. This leaves little room for Royce and Kassandra to explore a future together as that seems like the least likely path for what is good for Akora and England.
Though Akora seems too perfect as a nineteenth century Utopian modernization of Ancient Athens, KINGDOM OF MOONLIGHT is an unusual yet stimulating Regency romantic suspense that will send new readers seeking DREAM ISLAND, the first book in the trilogy. The story line absorbs the full attention of the audience as the delightful lead couple struggles between love and duty. Fans who enjoy a different type of historical story will want to read Josie Litton's strong entry that daringly refreshes the sub-genre as few books do.
historical back drop is also interesting and the social situation of the time is intriging. I feel the best part is when
she returns to Akora because that is when everything starts to unfold.
And there is little chemistry or passion between these characters. I was not sure what attracted them to one another. I really had to force myself to stick with this book and that's something I have never had to do with any of the author's other books. It almost seemed that this book existed mainly to advance the story of Akora and to set up the story for the next book "Castles in the Mist" about Alex and Kassandra's half brother Atreus (which, from the exerpt looks more promising than this one). The book concentrates too much on the situation on Akora - the rebels that may or may not be behind the unrest, on Kassandra's stepping in as Vanax (leader of Akora) while Atreus is in a coma after an assasination attempt - to the detriment of the love story between the two main characters.
I will, however, continue my faith in the author and look forward to the last book in the trilogy, Atreus' story.
