    4.5 starsMoonset was once an ordinary coven Not remarkable in any one way till something set them on the path to darker magic which continued to crave unstoppable forbidden powers They started a war, became terrorists that lead to hundreds of deaths They were a feared unstoppable force Then one day they simply surrendered No one knows why, maybe it was momentary clarity that freed them from the dark forces But being quickly tried and executed, their plans were never revealed.However, they 4.5 starsMoonset was once an ordinary coven Not remarkable in any one way till something set them on the path to darker magic which continued to crave unstoppable forbidden powers They started a war, became terrorists that lead to hundreds of deaths They were a feared unstoppable force Then one day they simply surrendered No one knows why, maybe it was momentary clarity that freed them from the dark forces But being quickly tried and executed, their plans were never revealed.However, they did leave something else behindMalcolm, Justin, Jenna, Cole and Bailey The children of Moonset They will always be reminded of the sins of their parents and branded by an unbreakable curse that sets their fate as one Something or someone is coming Will the Moonset children be evil s second coming Or can they rise above and escape their tainted bloodline Wow I had so much fun with this book This would be my first book by Scott Tracey, but it wont be my last Tracey s writing is smooth, sharp and confident and has the perfect blend of magic and madness I was easily absorbed from the first page till the very last It s been a long time since I enjoyed magical element in my escape to this extent, but it also has a little bit of everything else I love Mystery, suspense, wicked idea and wonderful imagination and even a touch of romance to make me smile.Moonset is told in Justin s point of view which I absolutely loved Not only do I adore male characters pov s but Justin has one of those voices that is easy to connect with instantly He s got a great sense of humor, looks out for his family and glues you to the pages throughout the entire story.His twin sister, and the only one related to him by blood, Jenna on the other hand is a really piece of work Attention seeker, stubborn, frustrating, bratty, always stirs up trouble You know the kind Someone you d love to slap or watch someone put her in place I can t say that I loved her, but she s got sharp wit and I found her colorful dialog to be most entertaining, plus, you can t deny she loves her family.As for the rest of the adopted siblings, I liked them a lot as well Malcolm is the eldest and relieson his physical strength then magical spells Cole is funny and fearless while Bailey is the youngest, she s sweet, pixie like and very much protected.Together these are the teenagers of Moonset and they have so much weight on their shoulders that I m amazed they can even walk straight To be viewed and judged solely by the actions of what their parents did in the world before their death must be both exhausting and excruciating But through it all they look out for each other, being each others family and friend I love their bond, their connection, their humor, their banter and overall good nature despite everything They are a wonderful cast of character that have you invested the minute you meet them and they will make you want to see it through till the very end.The concept and story line has a good mixture between a healthy dose of gathered information about the history and magical aspect and the full force of what that magic has planed for this group of misfit teens There are a handful of adult guardians that, quite frankly I never cared for Other then Quinn he was cool they all seemed very judgmental, unfair and full of themselves despite there good intentions This also has very little romance, which the sap in me would usually complain about, but to honest the story line was so busy you don t even miss it What we did get was cute though The minute I met Ash, I knew we were gonna get along just fine She s a fun, witty, fiery characters that s a bit odd but there is a kind of twinkle in her personality that I found infectious All in all, I had a great time with this book You can tell that Scott Tracey took his time in this world filling it with action and adventure and so much magic The fun kind, complete with titles and spells and creatures and a history that made this universe unique, intriguing and fascinating There is a lot to process but the way it s told felt easy to absorb everything this book has to offer It also leaves us on a good note, but I m still really looking forward to seeing where Tracy will take these characters next A very well done fun filled adventure fit for fans who is looking for a fresh twist in their magical escape Loved it Next

    Moonset follows the trials and tribulations of the Children of Moonset an infamous coven of witch terrorists that brought chaos to the world Needless to say, the magical community that walk among the normal and teach their children in special independent study classes fear these remnants of one of the darkest periods in their history The five siblings are moved around, tracked, traced and held back frompowerful magic as there is legend and myth surrounding their capabilities and no Moonset follows the trials and tribulations of the Children of Moonset an infamous coven of witch terrorists that brought chaos to the world Needless to say, the magical community that walk among the normal and teach their children in special independent study classes fear these remnants of one of the darkest periods in their history The five siblings are moved around, tracked, traced and held back frompowerful magic as there is legend and myth surrounding their capabilities and no one trusts them, they fear they may bring the second coming of Moonset.When the family is moved following a rather unsavoury misadventure in their school, they are once again mysteriously carted off to a new town It soon appears that what found them may be worse than they thought and there could be some very dark magic at work.In Carrow Mill, the children of Moonset discoverandabout their confusing and complex family histories and the fact that this may not be another randomly chosen destination.Scott Tracey writes my kind of books I love his characterization Justin, the lead of the five children is fiercely protective of his family and the most vulnerable when it comes to the implications of his parents actions The way we get to know Justin is really interesting and it is clear from the start that people have always underestimated him While his other siblings seem to have their own particular thing , something they are associated with, be it a behavior, trait or talent, Justin is quietly fascinating As a reader, we can sense he has greater purpose.The book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger which will divide some readers, but, I have to admit, I kind of don t mind a cliffhanger if the author writes in such a way that means I would automatically be sucked into a follow up anyway and Tracey does The way Tracey handles magic, good and bad in this book is my ideal This is magic with edge I have been drawn to this book even in e reader format and I am a paperback junkie, so this is important people I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a fresh take on witches Scott Tracey is an author I cannot wait to readfrom

    I like Scott Tracey s WITCH EYES, so I wanted to read the start of his new series It is chock full of things I love like small towns with secrets, people with secrets, a closely bound found family, black magic, and a protagonist who has a lot to learn That applies to both his magic skills and talking to girls As soon as I finished this book, I had to express my happiness with it on Tumblr I don t do that for every book.Each chapter begins with a short quote revealingof the history of I like Scott Tracey s WITCH EYES, so I wanted to read the start of his new series It is chock full of things I love like small towns with secrets, people with secrets, a closely bound found family, black magic, and a protagonist who has a lot to learn That applies to both his magic skills and talking to girls As soon as I finished this book, I had to express my happiness with it on Tumblr I don t do that for every book.Each chapter begins with a short quote revealingof the history of Moonset The Moonset coven was talented and respected until one day they turned to terrorism All that is left of them now is five children and rumors of member Cullen Bridger s survival Those five children Justin, Jenna, Malcolm, Cole, and Bailey are bound together They literally cannot separate They travel together across the country, moved from school to school when they reveal their powers and risk exposure It happens pretty often since Jenna likes to act out After all, they re left untrained and discriminated against because of something that happened when they were babies Things change when the kids are sent to Carrow Mill Unlike other places they ve lived, many of the residents are witches themselves And there are evensore feelings because Carrow Mill is where Moonset started.Now, MOONSET is not a perfect novel There may be five siblings but the book is all about Justin It s about his growth as a leader and growing disillusionment with the witches in power I m fine with the book having focus and not being overstuffed, but it doesn t give the siblings much of a chance to show how important to each other they are Cole in particular drops out of the story quite often It s a bittell than show And given that part of the mystery of Moonset has to do with how the coven s history is perceived, it would be nice to see the siblings perception of the various reveals throughout the novel But this is the start of a series, so perhaps subsequent books will focuson Jenna, Malcolm, Cole, and Bailey.There isdevelopment given to Ash, the one and only love interest She starts off very typical the assertive, quirky girl to Justin s socially awkward boy But by the end of MOONSET I liked the relationship They go on several dates, and I always love when the romance plotline shows the characters getting to know each other, and they also reassess each other as they learnSome of the revelations about Ash are obvious, but she still ended up beingthan she seemed in her introduction.What really drives MOONSET is the plot rather than the characters There s a warlock lose in Carrow Mill and he or she is probably after Moonset 2.0 Then there s the mystery of just why the original Moonset went bad If Justin can figure out what happened, maybe he can prevent it from happening again Because of course, even though they try not to believe it, the siblings have spent their lives absorbing that their guardians thing they re inherently evil Yet he tends to discoverquestions than answers There is definitely a lot to uncover as the series unfolds.Basically, I found MOONSET to be a really fun read I was excited to read the next book when I finished, no matter that it won t be out for a year I liked Justin quite a bit and would like to spendtime reading about him and his siblings doing things I want to unravel the secrets of Moonset Tracey pulled off a few real surprising revelations, so I think he continue to pull off a plot driven series Paranormal fans looking for something without vampires or love triangles should enjoy MOONSET

    I haven t read anything written by Scott Tracey previous to Moonset, but I definitely will be reading Witch Eyes as soon as I can Mr Tracey has an amazing writing style that is so easy to read with such a great flow that you don t realise how fast the pages are turning The characters of this book are amazing and so vast that you can t help but relate to some of their attitude quirks and urge them to becomemature and fight for their own life.Moonset is a coven of witches and this particul I haven t read anything written by Scott Tracey previous to Moonset, but I definitely will be reading Witch Eyes as soon as I can Mr Tracey has an amazing writing style that is so easy to read with such a great flow that you don t realise how fast the pages are turning The characters of this book are amazing and so vast that you can t help but relate to some of their attitude quirks and urge them to becomemature and fight for their own life.Moonset is a coven of witches and this particular coven has only teenagers as its members Years ago there was a conflict between the covens and Moonset lost They were classed as terrorists and it was believed they wanted to open the door to the darkness and the demons As a side effect of this conflict, the only surviving members were the children Malcolm eldest , Jenna and Justin twins, but to different Mothers , Cole and Bailey she is the youngest These 5 siblings, not by blood, but still family all the same, have been together and moved together ever since their parents died Every time they start a new school, Jenna or Cole cause trouble and they get moved again Jenna caused mayhem and confusion at this school and Cole helped, their guardians come and take them out of school when a wraith comes to capture the siblings.Justin is almost caught, but since the children are cursed, he couldn t be harmed and the wraith was eventually destroyed This is just the beginning of the trouble that seems to follow the Moonset kids around.Their next move is to Carrow Hill, the beginning and the end of the Moonset Legacy It seems this was where their parents came from and where trouble comes to a climax Starting a new school, Justin decides it is time to meet a girl Ash is strong willed and bold, she tells Justin what and when, he is attracted to her straight away.There seems to be a conspiracy and the Moonset kids are the bait There is a warlock in town and the only way to find out who he is, is to use the kids and blame them for the trouble Can Justin work out who is behind all the trouble in town Can he work out who can be trusted and what the mysterious symbol means Can the siblings still trust one another Who or what is Ash Who are all these people From the first pages I was hooked, this story about witches and magic was so very intriguing and mysterious I was kept guessing the whole time and still there are answers that I need I cannot wait for book 2 and loved that this was another awesome read from a male s point of view Full to the brim with intrigue, betrayal, secrets, mystery and romance, Mr Tracey has thought of everything I highly recommend this to all young adult readers, such a fun action packed read.Favourite part Am I supposed to be scare of you Cole laughed laughed At the wraith You should see Jenna without makeup That s scary You look like Betty White s grandmother, Cole called And you smell like a Kardashian loc 285 8%

    Full review up on the blog have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this one I was expecting something a little different when I read the summary maybe your average teenage drama with a paranormal edge to it, but it went a lot deeper than that and I found myself enjoying the plot.What I most liked about this read was the backstory of the main character Justin and his family are the children of terrorists who just happen to be witches too They ab Full review up on the blog have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this one I was expecting something a little different when I read the summary maybe your average teenage drama with a paranormal edge to it, but it went a lot deeper than that and I found myself enjoying the plot.What I most liked about this read was the backstory of the main character Justin and his family are the children of terrorists who just happen to be witches too They abused their power and summoned dark forces and were killed because of it Justin and his Coven still suffer for what his parents did, even though they had nothing to do with it All the witchy stuff aside, I think a lot of people can relate to the injustice of that kind of situation I know I for one have been blamed for something just because someone in my family happened to do the same thing I know blood is thicker than water and all that, but to what extent I also really loved reading a male s p.o.v It was such a nice change since I haven t read a male narrative in what feels like such a long time so I really enjoyed the subtle differences I thought Justin was a really well developed character that completely changed by the end of the book I could notice him growing up slightly and taking charge when and where he needed to which I think every book with a strong protagonist should have.The supporting characters, namely Justin s family, Ash and Quinn were really well rounded characters too I just really wish they played a bigger part in the plot I didn t feel that I got to know them well enough for me to care about whatever may happen to them by the end of the book I thought Quinn played the part really well but Justin s siblings were cut out of the story quite a bit which I think is disappointing.The plot itself seemed to me like a big introduction to the series There was a huge emphasis on Moonset s past, especially with Justin s father, and the events that occurred felt like a precursor to what is going to happen in the next book I did enjoy the plottowards the end where things got very interesting, but I think it has even greater potential in the next book of the series I definitely want to find out how Tracey takes it from here.Overall I would recommend this read for fans of the paranormal genre It s not a quick read and it gets a lotinteresting towards the end, but I enjoyed it

    Scott Tracey is fast becoming one of my favourite young adult fantasy authors I think this book has received a bit of unfair criticism as the few that I read seemed to mostly complain about the lack of character depth and development This is the first book in a series and as such it set up the world and the characters fantastically for me I liked the way that Mal was set up as the gay gym bunny without there being any need to explicitly state that he was gay Tracey has done a wonderful job Scott Tracey is fast becoming one of my favourite young adult fantasy authors I think this book has received a bit of unfair criticism as the few that I read seemed to mostly complain about the lack of character depth and development This is the first book in a series and as such it set up the world and the characters fantastically for me I liked the way that Mal was set up as the gay gym bunny without there being any need to explicitly state that he was gay Tracey has done a wonderful job of simply normalising homosexuality so that the reader picks up on it through comments and actions of the rest of the characters rather than the main character pointing it out as a necessary way to define him I think there are hidden depths to these characters and I m hoping that Tracey will bring these out further in the future books While Jenna is certainly the trouble maker and Bailey is the girl who clings, I think there were enough hints atgoing on than meets the eye in both of them, and if not them then definitely Cole.The other thing I totally adored about this book was the world Tracey has created I love the idea of this quasi religious witch group who somehow turned to terrorism and terrified the world for years before suddenly surrendering and leaving behind a group of babies who cannot be separated or harmed I have my suspicions about what might have actually gone on it these times, and I ll be interested to see how Tracey deals with all of this The covens do seem to be running an oligarchy where if you belong to a coven this is a spontaneous thing that can t be forced but simply happens to some witches you have vastly greater authority and power within the hidden witch world The main character Justin has at one moment an interesting episode where he argues against this power structure in much the same way as his father, the leader of the Moonset cult did It makes me wonder whether Moonset was as evil as everyone thought they were or if there was something else controlling their actions I guess we ll find out in subsequent books

    I have been a fan of Scott Tracey since I first read Witch Eyes, and I could not wait to experience his new series Moonset is the first book in The Legacy of Moonset series, and it is unbelievably phenomenal The five children of Moonset are the black sheep of the witching world, simply because of the travesties their parents committed when they were still in diapers While they may not all be biological siblings, they are a family.The oldest is Malcolm Denton, but he does not want anything to I have been a fan of Scott Tracey since I first read Witch Eyes, and I could not wait to experience his new series Moonset is the first book in The Legacy of Moonset series, and it is unbelievably phenomenal The five children of Moonset are the black sheep of the witching world, simply because of the travesties their parents committed when they were still in diapers While they may not all be biological siblings, they are a family.The oldest is Malcolm Denton, but he does not want anything to do with the magic that destroyed his family and his life That leaves Justin Dagget as the spoke person and quasi leader, who is forced to deal with his twin, Jenna s antics Jenna is a notorious troublemaker, whose actions have resulted in the children of Moonset being repeatedly moved Cole Sutter is the second youngest, and he is mischievous and likes to follow in Jenna s shadow Bailey is the youngest, and she is the most effected by the numerous moves and the constant changing of schools.Moonset keeps the action coming from the very beginning Just when you get comfortable, it ramps up the pace It is a roller coaster ride of a read, with twists, turns, ups, and downs, but it is the best kind of roller coaster ride, terrifying but you are completely in love with it at the same time I am seriously at a loss of words at how to describe how much a loved this book I dropped everything I was doing and even made my daughter late for school just so I could finish a fewpages.Now I will be sitting here waiting, eagerly waiting, for the next book in the series to see what is going to happen to the Moonset kids I guess I will have to fill the void with Phantom Eyes when it comes out in October I have said before and I will say it again, Scott Tracey is a genius Unabridged Bookshelf received this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review

    Moonset had one of the most interesting premises I love novels with witches and the politics of the covens in Moonset were fascinating The idea of a coven becoming terrorists and working against the governing body of witches is awesome and to have the story from the point of of view of the children of these terrorists is even cooler The world in Moonset was incredible and unique.Somehow, the awesomeness of Moonset must have been poorly executed in some way I am baffled by how such an amazing Moonset had one of the most interesting premises I love novels with witches and the politics of the covens in Moonset were fascinating The idea of a coven becoming terrorists and working against the governing body of witches is awesome and to have the story from the point of of view of the children of these terrorists is even cooler The world in Moonset was incredible and unique.Somehow, the awesomeness of Moonset must have been poorly executed in some way I am baffled by how such an amazing story fell flat for me, but it did I was unable to connect with any of the characters, despite all of them having distinct personalities I thought it would change once Ash was introduced She was a quirky and fun character and Justin s love interest, but as much as I loved the idea of her character, something about her and the other characters fell flat As I continued reading, the plot thickened The pace sped up and an entire web of secrets began to unravel before my eyes As awesome as this was, there was still something about this book that wasn t hooking me I felt intrigued, yet somewhat disconnected the entire time, despite totally loving the events that were taking place I cannot say that Moonset wasn t a good story, but I just couldn t get into and connect with any of the characters and truly care about the outcome I m not really sure why As much as I wanted to love this book, I just didn t.I would probably recommend the book because it is unique and the plot really was great Perhaps whatever went wrong for me won t happen to others I did enjoy the premise and it partly filled a giant gap in my life since The Secret Circle television show was cancelled I realize how much I needbooks with witch covens and darkness and family secrets Moonset will be released on April 8, 2013 and is available for pre order
