    1. 4.5 stars out of 5Obsession, possession, or something else These are the threads that author Linda Acaster so expertly weaves in Torc of Moonlight, the first book in the Celtic Goddess Trilogy The story revolves about students, Nicholas Blaketon and Alice Linwood and art professor Leonard Harkin Nick goes to Hull University to play rugby and get girls, that is, until he meets history major, Alice Alice is a serious and very shy student and keeps herself apart from anything that might resemble a [...]

    2. This book is than simply a damn good read This well crafted paranormal romance leads the reader through mysteries that are only gradually revealed, frightening us along the route taken by the possessed lovers She builds empathy for the central characters, putting us inside their minds to explain their motives, drives and fears, and shredding our hearts with their emotional experiences That she handles the male point of view with as much skill and sympathy as that of the female says a great deal [...]

    3. Torc of Moonlight is the story of student Nicholas Blaketon and his obsession with pale and introverted Alice Linwood Nick returns to Hull University after the summer break and things are pretty downbeat His girlfriend has left him His housemates have nothing in common with him and if his grades don t improve he ll be out of university on his ear A rugby injury leaves him angry and aggressive and he alienates his few remaining friends Add to this his increasingly erratic behaviour and it s clear [...]

    4. The contemporary story is of students Nick Blaketon and Alice Linwood who meet as undergraduates at Hull University Very different but drawn together It s what is behind the reason they re drawn together that gives this book its amazing twist The predatory lecturer and his past have a role to play and also a story from a whole lot further back Linda Acaster gets inside the head of her characters in a way that not many authors manage, so that as a reader you revel in their triumphs, and are crush [...]

    5. Great story, very atmospheric Some of the images stay with you after you ve read it I ve been on the Pickering Steam Railway mentioned in the book so it was good to read about places I know.I m looking forward to reading the next book The Bull at The Gate.

    6. As a lover of trilogy novels no matter what their form may take, I was excited to be given this book to review as my first for Darkissreads As a lover of old religions and ancient Celtic myths, the book s title and description intrigued me The book s genre is classed by the author as a time slip, two times coming together in a fruition of sorts However in this book it only touches the surface of the two time periods and the reason behind the slips.The book follows the story of Nick Blaketon who [...]

    7. This is the best novel Linda Acaster has written so far Coached in lyrical, almost poetically descriptive language, it leaps from one character to another with a speed that s dazzling and almost frenetic in its haste to convey their points of view Though the classifications and terms of the British university system were a bit confusing, this was a minor obstacle to the story and the vivid descriptions made the countryside and the various Celtic sites come alive Sad, haunting, even poignant, the [...]

    8. I m a bit torn with this one On one hand it is a good paranormal story with undercurrents of myth and legend that many across the UK will recognise with intriguing hints at something bubbling just below the surface On the other hand however I found the character develop a little lax and the relationship between Nick and Alice rather strange, even taking into account the paranormal undercurrents of the story Alice s change from virginal student to practical nymphomaniac in particular didn t sit r [...]

    9. So I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book as part of a First Reads giveaway quite a while ago and I feel bad for not having finished reading it, or at the very least explaining why that is The truth is, it had a promising if not slow start, which made me want to keep on reading but at the same time was slightly off putting In the end, it just wasn t engrossing enough for me, and I ended up moving on to other books However, I plan to pick it up again soon, as I really want to give it a [...]

    10. I really tried to pick this book up but it just wasn t there for me The writing is subpar Acaster s comma useage is too liberal, it breaks everything up too much and makes it difficult to read and enjoy, and I really believe it would benefit from some editing, and some honest advice It is a shame because it spoils for me what could otherwise be a wonderful story I won t rate it, but I will say that if what I ve said doesn t bother you give Torc of Moonlight a read.

    11. While I loved the premise and even started to really root for the characters, the descriptions were so hard to follow at times, that I had to reread sections several times just to figure out what was happening Disappointing.

    12. This is an updated version ie new blurb cover and excerpt from Book Two The Bull At The Gate follows the novel ffused with a rich pagan sexuality superbly gripping It has garnered 17 45star reviews on.

    13. Nice book about magisch realisme with a touch of re incarnation If you love those kind of stories, I for will recommend you to read it I did however found now and then a bit confusing story and had now and then a weak moment But the end have surprise me for sure.

    14. I would love to read this book but unfortunately the author has book 2 book 3 on hold and I will not read a series until I have all the books.
