What a great time I had reading Ivan Obolensky’s Eye of the Moon!

Full of wonderfully fresh characters, it’s a story full of stories that become interwoven as the novel unfolds.

Looming over the book and all the characters is the fabulous estate of Rhinebeck, part Gothic castle, part Downton Abbey and part upstate New York country home.

The estate holds many secrets, mysteries, and the hearts of all who have lived there or hope to. But it’s the characters that we take with us and hope to see again.

Finely drawn, unique and complex, these are less characters in a book and more people we come to know better as we spend time with them. Comedy, romance, death, passion, mystery, and magic are all elements that drive the story.

Full of suspense and always revealing new surprises, this novel is just plain fun to read. And I for one can’t wait for a sequel!
