The Moon in Her Eyes: a witch’s tale by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Shannon Fowler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Moon in her eyes is the first book I have read by Nikki Broadwell, but it is the second in the series. I was a little lost at the beginning as I didn’t know the character or the situation, however that lost feeling quickly went away as I joined Emeline on an incredible adventure through time. Reading about a time traveling witch, is something new to me, but something I certainly enjoyed reading.

This was an easy to read book with some characters that were helpful to Emeline and some that I wished she had used her magic on. I enjoyed reading this story so much that I plan to get book one, A Witch in Time Saves Nine. There are references to that story in The Moon so I have a good idea what happens there, but since the writing style and story line is so intriguing I can’t wait to read more! I recommend reading this series in order.

The Moon in Her Eyes by Nikki Broadwell a fabulous four-star read. I have read this author previously and thoroughly enjoyed her work so was so excited to get my hands on this, I must admit I didn’t realise this was book two, and I will go back and read book one, but I didn’t feel like I missed anything, the story was full and detailed. The story is fast paced and the plot was detailed but not overly flowery, you felt like part of the story and your heart would race as you get so sucked into the story you can’t put it down.

The Moon in Her Eyes: A Witches Tale by Nikki Broadwell is a unique and interesting story of a witch whole travels through time and the consequences she faces from doing so.
This book is part of a series although the books do not have to be read in order. But it is a bit unclear from the titles that this is the case.
This book is absolutely incredible. I knew from the description that I would be taken on such a journey but I could not have imagined just what that journey would consist of. The story was rich and detailed, making it so easy to envisage what was happening. The characters were creative and relatable, which is impressive when the author is writing about a witch from the 1600’s!!
This author thoroughly grabs your attention and holds you captive all the way through the book. She sets the pace well and develops the story with ease. This is a brilliant book and one I would highly recommend.

A great read about time. Emeline Chase is a witch who can travel through time. Her travels end her up in the 1620s to live with a native American tribe and fall in love with its leader, Samoset. But her abilities cause trouble and mess with time, altering events she knew . With the help of a coven, can she fix it before it’s too late?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Emeline trusting her abilities while struggling with her feelings or Samoset trying to protect his people despite his feelings
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the sense of nature with the forests in the past full of colour and animals.
And the scenes with the fountain under the moon were perfectly written with a.sense of awe and wonder Or the magical and friendly sense of the coven house with the stars was a lovely touch
The only issue I would raise is that it was sometimes hard to follow to which timeline the narrative was taking place . Perhaps a switch of perspective on Samoset or chapters with timeline names on could make this clearer. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars .

The Moon In Her Eyes is the second book in the Witch series. It isn’t specifically a cliffhanger, as the main story has a conclusion, but it does leave the story open to continue.

I really wanted to love this book, but the political aspects of it were not woven into the story in a way that made it flow. It came across as a soapbox rather than a story enhancement. The time travel and paranormal aspects were overshadowed by the challenge I had weeding through the politics.

I did like the historical aspects and the weaving of the time travel piece. And there were a pretty good variety of characters to get to know.

The Moon in Her Eyes Book Two A Witch’s Tale by Nikki Broadwell

Four Stars

This story was a little confusing. I got lost a lot and had to go back and reread some parts. I did enjoy the story. It was a different direction than most books take. Usually the lead has all this power and stops the bad guy. In this story Em has some powers but doesn’t know how to use them. She isn’t really on board to defeat the bad guy until her man gets involved. I am still not too sure about Helga. She doesn’t vibe right to me. The plot isn’t explained at all doing the book. I’m still trying to figure out what lead to Lourie being this way and why is she after Em. It’s an interesting read with the time traveling and magic.

The Moon in Her Eyes: a witch’s tale by Nikki Broadwell is a fantasy and is full of magic and witches both good and evil. The characters were likeable and the story was set over a lot of different time zones and was a bit hard to keep track of it all. The overall theme of time travel and plot were interesting and I became engrossed in the story because I had to know how it ended. It is not my favourite by Nikki but I was intrigued. At times the main character annoyed me and I wanted to smack her but I had to remember she really was a young adult.

Overall it is a good story that should be added to your to read pile. Enjoy.

5 Stars!!!!!

I really like paranormal stories and when you add the added bonus of time travel well who could ask for anything more? The author has such a refreshing world that she has created. The story line is unique and the story just grabs you and keeps you glued to the pages.

I really felt myself connected with Emeline. The way she built her life with Samoset and his people really adds to the story. I really liked how she is able to time travel and the drama that is played out in the book as she fights to put the future straight really keep you enticed. This book is such an addicting read and I will most certainly be reading it again as well as more books from this author.

The Moon in Her Eyes: A Witch’s Tale by Nikki Broadwell is a wonderful paranormal mystery, with romance, fantasy, magic, time travel, drama, and adventure.
This is a standalone story, but not the first book with Emeline, the main character. Emeline is a time travelling witch who started her adventures in “A Witch in Time Saves Nine”, when she transports back in time, only to discover that she really has no control over when she travels, or where she ends up. This becomes quite a terrifying ordeal for her- but she figures she must be there for a reason, but any small changes she makes seems to have a flow on effect on the future, throwing everything out of whack. This story sees Emeline searching for the answers to putting things right, but the craziness seems to have no end. With things seeming to spiral out of control, Emeline is being blamed for all the terrible things that are happening. There is a lot at stake, including matters of the heart, and Emeline will need to work it all out and discover a way to set things right, before it’s too late.
I love how Ms. Broadwell’s stories are always so original- infusing each one with her unique style and ‘feel’. I also enjoy how her stories include American Indian people, culture, and/or mythology as part of her storylines- for example here in Emeline’s stories we meet the Wampanoag people. I find this to be very creative and imaginative- and I also love how the magic and time travel was woven into the story. Ms. Broadwell creates vivid, fully realised, and believable world/s (times) in which she set her story. This plot switches back and forth from in time(s), as the whole story plays out. But, these transitions are quite smooth and seamless. Ms. Broadwell also includes some political and social issues which gives this story some added interest.
The whole story has an “Outlander” x “Sliding Doors” feel to it, but with it’s own unique identity.
An enjoyable and engaging read.

Thank you, Ms. Broadwell!
