Review

A fantastic read. I really felt like I knew the characters in this book, and I felt their pain and hopelessness at the situation they were in. I felt anger, worry, frustration; all manner of emotions as I was reading this. I still feel it, because their journey hasn¿t finished yet, and I have no idea what will happen to them next. If a book can make me feel so passionately, I know it must be good. (BOOK CHICK CITY)

Book Description

This fantastic book is a direct continuation of the story started in Magus of Stonewylde and begins exactly where Magus left off. The threats to Sylvie and Yul are still there and Magus himself is rapidly becoming one of the evilest, nastiest villains I have come across.
As before Kit Berry brings the world of Stonewylde to life with her details and characterisation making it, again, a book you can get lost in and the continuing 'forbidden' romance between Sylvie and Yul is the kind of stuff that Twilight etc could only hope to be. The cliffhanger ending had me gripped and I am glad I only have to wait a month to re-enter this magical world.
The festivals and rituals of this Pagan community are all well explained and it is good to be able to follow the year through the eyes of the villagers and hall folk.
A most excellent book, that improves on the first and leaves me wishing there was a 5 star + option for the ratings

I purchased the first and thank goodness for kindles... I got the second one instantly. Now my partner is gripped by the magical story. We sit in silence (for once) glued to our kindles, only interrupted by comments on the vile Magus or poor Yul and Sylvie. Whooping with joy when they get the better of him. The story is complex, interesting, magical, mysterious very believable too. If you re into the magic of nature, the seasons, and the psychii, then this book has it all.... Need some sleep....

The second in the Stonewylde series, 'Moondance' continues the story where 'Magus' left off. It's a lot darker in places but the characters are much more developed - we see more of Sylvie and Yul's relationship and although I like this one best as Yul doesn't suffer as much physically, Kit Berry builds the tension between them and Magus till right at the end with a huge cliffhanger that will make you long to read the next one!

For me , the highlight is seeing how the Stonewylders celebrate more of the 8 festivals, notably Lammas and Mabon. Kit has visualised and written so vividly about how the harvest is gathered and how to celebrate at the cricket match, how the apples are gathered in autumn and turned into cider. The Stonewylde world is so well described in this novel - if you weren't hooked by now, you will be!

This is the right time of the year to be reading this book, if you love the celebrations of the summer season and the harvesting of Earth's bounty, all of which are described to perfection in Kit Berry's second book in the Stonewylde series. However, not everything is sunshine and light. Having previously set the scene of life in this enclosed community, now the dark side of the story begins to unfold and you are taken on a rollercoaster ride of shock as the true nature of the community's leader, Magus, becomes increasingly apparent. No gentle descent to the end of this ride, however. The last few pages leave you with a real cliff-hanger, wondering how the young lad, Yul, will possibly survive what appears to be a desperate life-threatening situation.
A word of advice: Don't take this book on holiday with you, unless you have also bought the third book in the series, Solstice at Stonewylde, or your summer vacation could be ruined wondering what happens to young Yul!

Hey, what a really great read. To be honest I'd lost interest in reading mainstream books over the last few years, even Booker prize winners have been cast aside after a few pages as I wasn't finding anything new or inspiring in them. Not so the first two books of the Stonewylde series. I don't believe in `dark forces' and magic but something deep within me is fed by the story-telling. The warmth, love and caring between hero and heroine, I find reflects the nature of our souls and who we really are. The Villagers and their way of life with their sense of community, respect for the land and their fellows, their willingness to work hard and the acknowledgement of the unseen energies that govern their lives, all created a yearning in me for something that appears to be missing and unrecognised in the way we are living out our lives. Balanced against the Hallfolk and Magus who represent and epitomise our egocentric lifestyles, Yul and Sylvie seem to represent our soul yearnings, aching to be heard and to win over against the noise, emptiness and turmoil of our ego's. And like soul vs ego, is the winner in doubt? I guess I'll have to wait for the story to unfold!

I also liked the fact that here is a story with substance without the need for blatant, in-yer-face killing, blood, gore and sex that most books these days seem to require. Hoorah! And I really do think the books would make a great film series and put something on the big screen that Hollywood is looking for. Good enough to challenge Lord of the Rings methinks! Thank you so much, Kit.

WOW! An absolute corker of a book! COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! Please read Magus of Stonewylde first as this is the second book in the series.

The story continues of yul, slyvie, Magus and the fight for the moonmagic.
More characters are introduced and we get a even better feel for the community of stonewylde. Just reading the third book Solstice at Stonewylde. Believe me it gets better and better!
