MOON DANCER: Tarov is a skilled dancer, wielding the deadly instruments crafted from the bones of a sea monster. Henel has stolen Tarov’s man in the past, and now seems intent on not only taking Tarov’s place as lead dancer, but her new lover too. Will Tarov lose everything to treachery? Or will the magic of Sea Forest help her find happiness?
DISENCHANTED LOVER: When Lady Rose Cheevers impulsively casts a spell and brings her husband back from the grave, she’s horrified to discover he’s not the angel she thought. When she seeks out the roguish thief, Mister Drake Pann, to help rid her of the demon, she discovers a new passion for love that may have everything to do with enchantment…or nothing at all.
“In Moon Dancer, Ms. Kennedy returns to the erotic, verdant world she created in her novel Beneath The Thirteen Moons. She is clearly comfortable returning to this setting as she easily slips the reader into the aquatic planet whose inhabitants worship the sea and live in massive trees. The result is a crisply told tale of love, jealousy and betrayal unfolding in a troupe of moon dancers, skilled performers of a beautiful and potentially deadly art form. Of course our heroine Tarov gets her man, but will she lose her identity in the process? Moon Dancer is one part sci-fi thriller, one part love story and one part Shakespearian drama, all wrapped tightly into a dense yet easy to read short story.” —David Benz, Edgar-nominated author
