4.0 out of 5 starsInteresting start to a series
Reviewed in the United States on October 3, 2019
This was a nice novella to introduce us to the characters, and it was worth the 99 cents that I paid for it. I will read the first novel and see what I really think if the series.
4.0 out of 5 starsWonderful introduction to a good new series.

Burning Moon Series: Ashes, Prequel - One of my favorite authors, which pretty much guaranteed a well written, interesting introduction to her new series Burning Moon. The storylines are set in motion; the characters are introduced with future growth; and the emotions run pretty freely with all the events that have occurred. There's intrigue and plenty of suspense. There is violence, but not graphic or gory. Nightmares led to mysteries that the trio of teenaged brothers will have to solve in order to live their lives. 4*
Spark #1 - This story starts a year after Ashes ends. The brothers are living and working in Flagstaff, AZ. Ms. Close didn't fail to please with Spark. After reading Ashes, which sets the history and foundation for the brothers, the storylines continue to weave into a fast paced, intriguing and suspense filled novel that is difficult to put down. The brothers keep growing as they learn and adapt to their nature. The new characters added in Spark are also interesting and believable, and add to the depth of the story. The romance is filled with sexual tension, but they take time to grow into their relationship, which I always appreciate clean stories and females with morals. The author always entertains, adds unexpected twists and is original making even the old worn themes new and interesting. I contacted the author to review her books and never have been disappointed with her work. 5* Burning Moon Series end.
Vampire Files Trilogy: Red Night #1 - A well written, humorous, romantic suspense filled with interesting characters, both funny and menacing. The book starts a little slow, but kicks into gear and is hard to put down. There's a twist or two adding to the excitement and the humor never leaves the pages. I laughed out loud numerous times, the suspense and intrigue are great. The reactions of the female character are realistic and I appreciate her thoughts and morals. Hooked and looking forward to reading Red Moon, the second book. For those who care, there's sexual tension but no sex or vulgar language, just intriguing entertainment. 5*
Red Moon #2 - Another well written, humorous, romantic, fast paced, suspense filled with interesting characters and a twisting plot. As with Red Moon, the excitement never stops. The female character is still realistic and keeps her head and morals. I look forward to reading more of this series. If you love Jim Butcher and Charlaine Harris, you will love RK Close! For those who care, there's sexual tension but no sex or vulgar language, just intriguing entertainment. 5*
Red Dream #3 - Another well written addition to the series. Fast paced and suspense filled, with romance for several characters, RD introduces more interesting characters to round out the series. Plenty of drama, confusion and mishaps, while the female character gathers her resources and receives support in her endeavors from surprising sources. For those who care, there's no sex or vulgar language, just intriguing entertainment. 5* Vampire Files Trilogy end.
ASHES is the second book in the Burning Moon series, a prequel that the author says is best read after the first book. Personally, I think it could be read either first or second.
I loved this short story explaining how Liam, Seth, and Cole discovered their werewolves and the effect it had on their lives. Though a short story, there was no feeling of anything being rushed or left out. Instead there is plenty of suspense, a bit of romance, and just enough questions left to make me want the next book to come sooner rather than later.
Note: While I received this book as a gifted ARC, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

The beginning of it all, while book 4, this story gives you a look into how the McKenzie brothers first found out they were shifters. This series has become one of my favorites. I love her writing style as well as the characters she has created for her world. Whether you enjoy paranormal or haven’t jumped in just yet, her books are must reads!
