She’s now part of a world that’s been expecting her all the while she thought it was nothing more than fairytales.

Everything is not as it seems. Secrets have been kept on both sides and now both Tanjie and Alaric are having to make choices they never thought they would have to make. Tanjie must learn how to navigate this new world and how to control her powers while Alaric must decide where his loyalties lie, and risk losing either his people or Tanjie.

I was drawn to Dark Moon Secrets because I LOVED the cover art and I was excited at the potential of getting hooked on a new series. I have never read Lilliana Rose before but I wasn’t disappointed by their writing style. I always appreciate when stories are told by alternating or multiple perspectives so that was a selling point for this book as well. I love all thing witches and was really excited to see Lilliana’s perspective in the paranormal romance. I really enjoyed Tanjie and the character growth throughout the storyline.

Yet again another great book by one of my top favorite authors. I love how this series is paranormal and how the two mains are in a sort of forbidden love situation. I also like how the author is able to create such a vivid great world and bring the characters to life. The drama is also very well balanced and adds a great depth to the story. I really enjoy how the author creates the back story and builds everything into a peak and leaves the reader wanting more. I definitely will be reading more from this series and cannot wait for the next installment.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark moon secrets is the first book in the Witch Moon series by Lillian Rose. It is slow to start with a lot of character building once you get past this it is a rather intricate and intriguing story about Tanjie.

She was born into a life that destiny had predetermined and she never knew about until it was too late to seek advice from her loved ones. Mystery surrounds the book store which is a human front for the world that she belongs to. Witches and shapeshifters, secrets, sexual innuendo, forbidden attractions, tension and mysteries this book has it all.

I loved the fact that this book is set in Australia and as an Australian the areas were familiar to me.

Tanjie befriends an older woman in her apartment building and becomes close. When the woman died, she left strict instructions and a bookshop to Tanjie in her will. Tanjie has no intention of running this bookshop in the middle of nowhere but the rules state she must run the shop for a year before she is to make any decisions about the shop.

Tanjie makes her way to the town with hopes of staying 2 weeks max but destiny has another plan. Almost instantly an accident happens rendering her car and only escape useless for the time being. It seems as if someone or something is making her stay in this strange town. She meets Luna who is the current caretaker of the shop and finds out that Tanjie is actually an untrained witch who was prophesied to make a difference in the coven.

Alaric is the son of the Alpha of the Dark Moon pack, he is mysterious and sexy but also a bit of a wildcard within the pack. He always has to prove himself to his father but it’s never enough. When Al meets Tanjie he can’t help but instantly be attracted to her. A wolf shifter and a witch? Forbidden! He can’t seem to get her out of his mind and keeps finding ways to go back to her. If they are caught, it could ruin both of their futures within their respective groups.

I read another series from this author and really enjoyed it so when I saw this book, I knew I had to read it! This author does a really good job writing paranormal romances. They write each character in such detail that you can immerse yourself and become one with the character. The author also does a fantastic job describing the world so you get a feel of what life is like. With some steamy romance, detailed enough for intrigue but vague enough to not be crude, you are in for a treat.

I cannot wait for the second book of the series!

I have been enjoying reading all of Lilliana Rose’s books and series. Her ways of bringing the character’s perspectives to view have me loving fantasy romance more than before.

Tanjie works at a bookshop and she does not know that she is a witch yet. She had trouble accepting the truth at first but then she met Alaric, I believe he is the Omega in the pack of wolf shifters. Who started attacking the witches because they had control over the wolves.

The reason 4 stars is that I am still a newbie in this genre and growing into loving wolf shifters and witches with vampires.

Dark Moon Secrets (The Witch Moon Series Book 1) by Lilliana Rose – Review by Jessica Stone

This book is set in Australia, which gives it a fun little vibe, I had a blast picturing the locations, towns, and environments that this story took place in since I am from the US and I haven’t read many books based on Australia.

Tanjie is just an ordinary girl, who’s gone through far to much in her short life so far, after losing her parents when she was younger in a car crash she manages to pull herself and life together and start to make something of herself. That is until one day a friend of hers Marie suddenly passes away, leaving instructions for her to take over ownership of a bookstore of Marie’s under a condition that she can only sell the business after she has worked in the shop for one year. Suddenly Tanjie is thrust into a world she thought only existed in books. She’s a witch, and it’s time for her to come into her powers and help her family’s coven keep control and balance in this crazy world. But all Tanjie wants is to live a normal life, one of her own design, that and maybe a quick piece of tall dark and handsome Alaric. Alaric is a wolf shifter with a superiority complex, he wants to be his own free man outside of the pack able to choose his own path, but his father, the alpha has other plans for Alaric and his future, that don’t include freedom, or cute little witches.

I love that Tanji and Al are immediately attracted to one another, as much as I love a good, one falls first type of story, I can’t help but crave the angst and steamy banter between to characters equally attracted to each other. Their banter is fun and engaging, it leaves you wanting more from them with every page you turn, and the spice between them had me fanning myself at points.

I’m interested to see where the author takes this series from here, this book is kinda left on a cliff hanger, with things being up in the air, I hate slash love the not knowing what’s going to happen to our main characters, especially when I’ve fallen so thoroughly in love with them both. The unpredictable aspect of this book paired with the chemistry of our main characters and the world building make for a tantalizing book to consume, and you will, consume it that is. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. I Can’t wait to see what becomes of my girl Tanjie’s in the next book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fate or choice. Everything is about to change. This is the first book in the new series by the incredible Lilliana Rose. Having read her Protector Wolf Shifter Series, I was very excited and looking forward to this new series. Dual perspectives of Tanjie and Alaric as they face life altering changes that lead to them meeting and so much more.
Tanjie has had a beyond tragic and painful past year and seems the fates weren’t done with her when she sadly finds her elderly neighbor Maria had passed away in her apartment. Since her parents’ “accident” she had focused on finding her own path and making her own choices. Her entire life she rejected her parents “hippie ways” and though odd she found comfort with her neighbor Maria. Like her parents she too had “hippie ways” and rejected tea and tarot card readings at every mention. Only after Maria’s passing and finding her will leaving Tanjie with a “bookstore” is she forced to confront the path she rejected long ago. Alaric is the son of the alpha and is set to take charge of the pack when the time comes but he wants it now. He is restless and always searching for something more when a scent quickly becomes an addiction. The new owner of the “shop” Tanjie draws him in, unable to fight the desire and pull just her smile urges him to finally open his eyes and understand his father’s warnings of power and respect. Tanjie demands to know the truth from Luna, Maria’s friend that was running the shop, but nothing prepared her for the truth. With the help of the sexy bad boy Alaric that drew her to him and the urge to learn more about her power she was finding more reasons to stay. No longer wanting to run back to the city and forget the little town with its secrets.
What will happen when the wolves finally strike demanding power over themselves? Can Tanjie defend herself when the “war” begins? Will Alaric and Tanjie find balance in their species to overcome being forbidden lovers? This author always makes a “normal” world seem so much more when the blinders are pulled back and the supernatural thrives in the shadows of everyday life. Forbidden love is always a favorite troupe and more so when it involves those going against “the rules” and finding their own path, making a better world for all. I was left speechless and breathless by the time I reached the end and instantly began hunting for a release date to book two, New Moon Fate, to see where Tanjie’s story continues. Will she see her wolf again? My eyes are open and waiting for updates. This series is an instant favorite with just book one.

Dark Moon Secrets is Book 1 in the newest series from this talented author and I was excited to dive right in. This is a very good story that gave me all the feels that I love about paranormal romance with shifters, witches, wolves, magic, secrets and supernatural elements.

Tanjie is unaware of how truly important she is….and what is to become. Inheriting a bookstore unexpectedly, Tanjie is not only the new “boss” but she is also thrown for a loop upon learning who she truly is. Learning secrets that come to light and also being attracted to a wolf-shifter, Alaric, Tanjie must learn quickly before it is to late what her destiny entails.

Alaric is trying hard to become his pack’s new beta, but secrets and lies are hindering him from anyone taking him seriously. One thing Alaric cannot do is stay away from Tanjie, even though she is forbidden.

Worlds collide and secrets revealed, what will become between Tanjie and Alaric? Definitely read and find out!! I am already looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens!!
Happy Reading!!

Tanjie is a witch. Alaric is a wolf shifter. They are not supposed to like one another. Instead they are to be mortal enemies yet a connection between the two will cause a bit of an uproar.

Tanjie has lost her parents, a beloved elderly friend and has stayed away from some of the suggestions her family provided which she considered to be hippyish. She doesn’t fully understand her destiny as a witch. She inherits a bookstore, learns about her coven and finally starts to learn about witchcraft. It’s a slow process and she doesn’t know if it will be enough or in enough time.

Alaric is up for the next alpha and enjoys the wolf life. He’s drawn to Tanjie but knows disclosing this to his pack would be devastating.

This story is a great beginning to this series and created such a neat world with wonderful characters. The ending will get you and make you wonder what’s next.
I highly recommend reading this incredible paranormal story.

Dark Moon Secrets is the first book I’ve read from Lilliana Rose and I definitely enjoyed it. I enjoyed it enough to pick up more in this series if the author decides to write and publish more. I did wish that there could have been more from Alaric and more of Tanjie and Alaric together but the chapters where they were together were pretty great. I just felt like some of the chapters where it was just concerning the witches, or just concerning the wolves were a bit childish as it seemed like the witches were treating Tanjie like she was a child, and wanted her to obey their every command without giving any information or answering her questions, and Rafe along with the other wolves were incredibly hard on Alaric and were really nasty whenever they spoke to him. All of that though could have much more meaning as the series continues, and I will definitely look forward to finding out.

Dark Moon Secrets (The Witch Moon Series Book 1) by Lilliana Rose – Review by: Crystal Walker

Although it took time for the action and climax to really get going in this book, I enjoyed it! The characters were detailed and the names were unique. Not a name heard often, Tanjie, is just learning of her destiny and that she is special. Tanjie is said to be on earth for one reason and one only and that is to save the witches and the other beings from pure destruction. Although she has other thoughts on what her life should be like and how she should live, her destiny says something completely different. Then she meets Al or as he is better known to his pack as Alaric. These two have a destiny together yet it is unknown in the beginning and they are drawn to one another which is forbidden. How will they survive their drawn attraction to one another? Will their destinies win or will they find that their own stands to tear them apart? These are questions I had during the entire time reading and couldn’t put it down. What will happen in the next book? I can’t wait to know more and read about the lives of Tanjie, Alaric, the coven and pack!

Thank goodness this is book 1 in this series because I certainly want to read more! I hope there is more magic and wolf transforming in the next book(s) because that is part of the magic! This story ends with a cliffhanger, not a happy for now ending but an actual cliff hanger…ugh what are all the secrets! What is going to happen!

Wolves and witches don’t mix well in this story until Tanjie the witch and Al the wolf meet. They have a connection. Seems like it might be a lust connection but maybe it’s something more.

Tanjie has just discovered she is a witch however she doesn’t know what that means in the grand scheme of everything. She is learning but not fast enough for her liking.

Alaric, Al, has always known he is a wolf and is next in line to be Alpha if he can figure out his allegiance and prove his strength and intent to his pack.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This paranormal romance had everything I could ask for in a great first book of a series. Witches, wolf shifters, intrigue, forbidden romance, and so much more! We first meet Tanjie when we learn about the death of her parents and the bond that she has with her two best friends, and her elderly neighbor in her apartment building with whom she spends a day once a month chatting about things of her past that her parents held dear. When Maria, the elderly neighbor, is found to have passed on by Tanjie and her friends, it is such a shock and a sad reminder of the loss of Tanjie’s parents. Leaving her with so many unanswered questions about her life, and the path that she is supposed to take. To Tanjie’s surprise, she starts hearing Maria’s voice in her head, which reminds her to get the envelope that was left for her to open upon Maria’s death. This envelope contains Maria’s last will and testament, which will change Tanjie’s life in so many ways she could never imagine. First of all, Tanjie must move away to take care of the bookstore that Maria has left for her, and this is where Tanjie meets Alaric, the boy she is advised to stay away from because he is a troublemaker. Of course, this makes him all the more appealing to Tanjie, who is in denial of anything that is starting to happen to her, wanting everything to go back to the way it was before Maria’s passing. Tanjie learns quickly that life as she once knew it, will never be the same, and that she needs to learn to embrace change or lose her own life. This book was such a great read, I am impressed with the extensive attention to detail that the author has put into her writing. This book was such an exciting experience, I cannot wait to see what comes next in the 2nd book in this series.

But, when Tanjie shows up, the bookstore is nothing like she expected. In fact, it’s full of more secrets than she ever could have imagined. Her life is about to change…whether she likes it or not. At least there is a hot guy to make things interesting…

Alaric, a wolf shifter, spends more time finding women to lose himsel in than paying attentions to what’s going on the pack However, when his dad (who happens to be the alpha) lets the pack know that it’s time to stand up to the witches, Alaric realizes he must put the pack first in order to show his dad he is ready to become the beta and take over as alpha one day. But, when he finds out that the new woman in town is actually a witch, he finds his loyalty being tested. There is a pull he feels toward Tanjie…but what will he do when the time comes to fight the witches?

First off, this book ends with a cliffhanger. I will definitely be checking out the next book because I need to know what happens with these two. I found myself invested in Tanjie’s training and I also want to know what her skill is. And, it seems to be a big no-no for a witch and wolf shifter to be together…but could there be something bigger at play here?!? I can’t wait to see.

Dark Moon Secrets (Witch Moon #1)Dark Moon Secrets by Lilliana Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love a great fantasy/ paranormal book with witches and shifters, I was excited to read this book. This is the beginning of the second series I have read from this author and was not disappointed at all.

Tanjie is a regular young woman living life with her friends after the death of her parents. She is happy with life and doesn’t want to entertain the lifestyle her parents had wanted to teach her. When her sweet neighbor passes away suddenly, her life gets turned upside down with the bookstore she inherits.

This is a forbidden love story that will cause problems for a witch and a shifter falling for eachother. A suspenseful and intriguing read. Bring on book 2
