Review by: Maghon Thomas on May 03, 2013 :
HELLOOOOO HAWT PIECE!!!! Boy I sure do love me some werewolves! Especially hot ones! Hehehehe this book fascinated me. I am now very invested in this series because not only does it hold my attention, but it’s full of very fun characters and an extremely mysterious plot line and just downright good writing! I don’t know how else to say how much I enjoyed this book!

So, we’ve got a mixed blood situation here. kiara is part Fae and part werewolf. She was raised by her Fae mother who is also a royal. However the Fae aren’t so happy about this mixed blood thing so lets just say she had a crappy life. Kiara also thinks her fathers been dead her whole life. Well she gets a big surprise to know her father is suddenly missing, but was alive, and currently holds the position of alpha in the pack. I won’t lie, this plot line had me sucked in, because I was dying to know what was gunna happen! And Kiara had a whole lot to learn about herself, her mixed blood, and a culture she’s part of but doesn’t understand.

And then there’s Devlin…. Boy oh boy… DROOL!!!! He’s the typical HAWT male werewolf, who oozes alpha, exudes confidence and powers, and is pretty much a walking drool-endusing eye candy! Hello!!! I need one of those right now! Plus he’s got a sweet side when he’s trying to. He wants Kiara but promised to protect her and those things never go well together hahahaha I lurve him!! Devlin- welcome to my book boyfriend club!! You’re welcome anytime!!

I also really enjoy the secondary characters!! Reese and Marcus, who are a couple, are Kiara’s Fae guards and also her best friends. After her mishap in Fae land, they follow her and devote their life protecting her. Marcus and Cian are Kiara’s unexpected and not necessarily welcomed werewolf guards. I especially like Marcus I’m thinking I almost like everybody hahahaha

I don’t wanna give too much away. I am extremely fond of this story, I can’t wait to get my grubby paws in book two, and I thought this was a fantastic story telling! Well done Ms Keith! I hope you let me know as soon as you have book 2 ready for me hahahaha yes I’m special and it’s just for me LOL now go forth and get yourself this book- it’ll be worth it! 5 REALLY GOOD PAWS from me!

Review by: Michelle's Paranormal Vault of Books on March 09, 2013 :
I love this book! I can't wait for book two, hope it's not too long. Lol. This book was very different to most the paranormal books I read. It has something I had not read about before.
Blood and Moonlight is the first book in the Moonlight Trilogy by Moira Keith. This story focuses on Kiara, half fae, half werewolf, and its an intriguing mix. There are many exciting twists and turns. Suspense, and many things you just do not see coming.

It was brilliantly written. I liked the way it was written in first person from Kiara's point of view, but then would go to Devlin (who is super hot by the way) and would be in 3rd person with him. I really liked that. I seen that in another book a few times, and once I was used to it, I really liked it.
Kiara is a really strong person. I really was able to connect with her, and felt what she felt. Some of the things she had to endure where violent, and she has shown us to be very strong.
There is a lot of Celtic Mythology in this, and I enjoyed that. It's just not something you see as much of.

Kiara also lives in the modern world, but this world knows of the supernaturals, the Fae, Werewolves, and there is mention of others too, but we do not see any in this story. So it's interesting in that area too.
I will keep this as spoiler free as I can. We start with Kiara finding out that her werewolf father is possibly still alive, but missing. But she does not accept this right away, she wants proof. This is when she meets the handsome Devlin.
She has 2 Fae guards, Reese, and Keenan. Reese is a great best friend to Kiara too, as is Keenen, he is like an older brother, protective and very capable.

The pack wants Kiara's help in finding their leader Roarke who they tell her is her father. They believe her special abilities can help them. She has some unique magic of her own, and one of the abilities is to see and feel events that happened when touching the object or area. She is in danger too, as someone wants to stop her from finding the packs leader. Only a handful of people even know he is her father. Devlin is there to protect her along with her fae guards.
I really loved the chemistry between Devlin and Kiara, here is a cute part with them:

When I glanced up, Devlin was smiling at me. Great. Nothing like being caught in the middle of a drool fest.


And here is another part:

"I'm here on orders to ensure your safety."
"How much safer can I be if you are right beside me?" The words left my mouth before the thought had even formed in my head. Goddess help me, I was anything but safe around this man. Physically safe, sure--he was an intimidating presence. A person I wouldn't want to run into on a moonless night. Emotional safety was another story entirely. I shook my head. "Sorry, I can't seem to keep my foot out of my mouth around you."


I will stop there, that's just how it starts. We get some major action from there, intense suspense too. I was up late to finish this until past 4 am, seems that I keep doing this on great books like this.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys anything paranormal, or even romance if you don't mind some paranormal. It's pretty clean sexually, (it has one scene, but is done in a tasteful way) I would say New Adult category, 18 and up or so.

5 out of 5 stars for me.

I was provided a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

My thoughts:
What a wonderful story! I enjoyed every page. Moira Keith's story is unique, original and creative. She has created fantastic characters and set them in a world of intrigue and deception. I loved the fae/wolf bloodline heritage of Kiara and all that went along with it. Kiara is a strong heroine who pales only by comparison to her counterpart Devlin. He is the kind of man we are all looking for.
All of the characters have been created with personalities and characteristics that make them easy to invest in and leave the reader wishing there were "real" people who could compare. The exception of this of course are the "bad" guys; equally well-developed and as easy to dislike.
We are taken on a roller coaster of emotion as Kiara strives to figure out her place, her family, her future, her past, and her destiny - all while battling herself and her mixed blood and fearing who to trust.
Artfully written, engaging and entertaining. A must read - I can't wait for the rest of the trilogy!

Blood and Moonlight by Moira Keith

The main character in Blood and Moonlight is Kiara, she is half Fae and half wolf, and she has grown up hiding/ignoring the wolf side of her and keeping a lot of what she feels deep inside hidden away. Being ashamed of part of your self is not easy feat. Kiara’s is plagued by the death of her mother who was killed by wolves and Kiara cannot forget that, all Kiara wants is to find answers to who killed her mother. When Kiara meets Devlin McClure from the local pack he has come to ask her for her help. Of course Kiara cannot stand wolfs and it doesn’t matter that one of the missing pack members happens to be her father. At first Kiara does not offer to help and why should she help find father he left her and her mom alone a long time ago.

Changing her mind Kiara and Devlin head out to solve the mystery of missing pack members and her father. Besides the mystery that unfolds so does the romance and tension between Devlin and Kiara. Kiara at first has every excuse why they should not allow anything to happen between herself and Devlin but he is irresistible and hot and smells so good. Kiara and Devlin do not have an easy road ahead of them and both being such strong independent people they can’t even see what is right before their eyes …..that they are fated to be with each other.

Blood and Moonlight is a well written novel, I really liked that Kiara is part Fae and Wolf this is something you don’t read too much, I liked that it was different from other PNR reads. The novel was easy to read, has a lot of interesting character’s and the romance between Kiara and Devlin is exciting and you feel the tension building between them. There is so much more to this story the history of Kiara’s family, her tattoos and even Devlin comes from a strong and power background. This is a must read. Moira Keith has done an excellent job and her writing is good, I cannot wait to read more of Moira writings.

I would recommend Blood and Moonlight to anyone who enjoys Paranormal Romance/Mystery and a touch of Fantasy to pick up this novel. I have rated Blood and Moonlight a 4 star rating and cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
