A Great Continuation of the Moth Saga [SPOILERS This review contains character names and plot references]
on 17 June 2014
After an interesting first chapter exposing some of the lore behind on the world of Moth, Secrets of Moth picks up almost right where Empires of Moth ended, and is an excellent start to this book.
What strikes me most about this book, and book 2 of the series (but to a lesser extent) is how more fleshed out the characters are. Bailey, Cam and Linee are now much more developed characters and as a result they are all a lot more interesting. Ferius is as vile as ever, and while I didn't think much to his character in the first book, since book 2 he has become a lot deeper. His backstory has now been explored and he's more interesting and even more menacing. With their romance blossoming, Torin and Koyee's romance, and a developing love triangle with Bailey have given their characters an added layer of depth as well.
I think criticisms that I've had personally throughout the Moth series continue to mar this entry, however.
For one thing, the way the author repeatedly describes the same thing over and over, it works well sometimes but its over done. For example, the appearance of the different factions' armour is described numerous times. Again and again we are reminded of what the sigil/banner of each faction is, etc.
