About this ebook

A beautiful young Healer flees from two lethal sorcerers. One is smitten with her. The other wants her dead...

Tekoah wants a quiet life, but instead is hurtled into danger when she attracts the attention of two rival shapeshifters. Zant’s sole aim—eternal power. But Tekoah’s clan of Anniste healers defy him, so he targets them in his deadly plan for domination.

Moody Braith is younger, but his abilities already surpass that of any sorcerer ever spawned. His one vulnerability: a hopeless passion for Tekoah, who wants nothing to do with him.  A momentous clash between the wizards becomes inevitable, deciding the fate of the world.

As the final battle looms, Tekoah discovers her own magic. And she must make a choice:

Save herself, or help her clan.  

Set in the mythical land of Miraven, Where the Moon Has Been is a haunting epic fantasy tale of obsession and revenge—and one girl’s fight to save the ones she loves, amid a violent struggle between dark magic and light.

I received an advance review copy of Where the Moon Has Been, a first novel by Judith Lepore. Where the Moon Has Been is a gripping novel that has it all: romance, suspense, adventure -- set in a fantastical land where monsters, warriors, sorcerers and other beings with magical powers live alongside mere mortals. It is beautifully written with detailed descriptions that bring the characters to life. The plot never falters as the main characters proceed inexorably towards their fate. This novel is a must-read! I cannot wait for the sequel!

Being a lover of the Fantasy genre, I am always looking for engrossing new fantasy stories. I was given Where the Moon Has Been for Christmas, and couldn't wait to start reading it. Judith Lepore was a new-to-me author, so I had no preconceived notions about the story, but she promised it would be an epic fantasy, and so it was! To enjoy a good fantasy, one needs a loveable hero/heroine, an enigmatic central character, an antagonist that we love to hate, a mythical setting that we can easily imagine, and a unique and inviting plot; exciting, adventurous, and tender. This book has it all! I was happy to find, after I finished Where the Moon Has Been, that it is the first book of a trilogy, with book 2 having already been completed. I am very much looking forward to reading the first sequel, Mirror of the Sea, and falling further in love with Tekoah, Miraven, et al!

I highly recommend this book. I am new to reading this genre and look forward to reading more by this author. The story quickly absorbed me: when I wasn’t reading it, I found myself thinking about what would happen next. The families and individuals in the story are interesting and varied – this is part of what makes this a page turner. There are several settings- each one described so well that I could picture myself there. Upon completion, I read the last chapter again as I wanted to savour the ending and relive the words -especially the last four paragraphs. I was sent an Advance Review Copy of the book
