Reviews: The Moon Casts a Spell
October 15, 2014
“The beautiful and mysterious cover of ‘The Moon casts a spell’ perfectly illustrates the events of this subtle book, the fourth episode of Rebecca Lochlann’s powerful love story, ‘The Child of the Erinyes’. Three lovers reincarnate, drawn together by the emotional tangle that binds them. Unfortunately, hatred sustains another protagonist who pursues the lovers across the centuries, bringing destruction and death.” Mary Josefina Cade, author of The Bermondsey Grail, and other stories.
“Superbly written with compelling characters, this novella is my favorite, so far, in The Child of Erinyes series.” J. S. Colley, author of The Halo Revelations.
“Everybody who read my review on Child of Erinyes The Bronze Age Collection knows just how much I love these characters so I’m not even going there, apart from saying that they continue pretty much alive in “The Moon Casts a Spell”, their capacity to love just as endearing and some of their actions or inactions just as infuriating as ever.
And I keep hoping…oh how I hope…
I find this ability to actually feel strong emotions for these characters such a wonderful thing since it happens rarely when I read new authors.” Amazon reader

The Moon Casts a Spell is available everywhere. See “Links to Purchase” tab.
A tale of star-crossed love, of superstition and zealotry, as a goddess brings her ancient triad together again on the windswept isle of Barra, in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides.
The Chief of Clan MacNeil is forced to sell his ancestral island to John Gordon of Cluny, a mainlander. No one knows what to expect. Will life get better or worse? Will John Gordon take care of his tenants or evict them, like so many other landowners are doing?
* * * * *
Impetuous, irreverent, derided as Barra’s peculiar changeling, Lilith Kelso has little use for anyone but Daniel Carson, the orphan her mother has taken in. Everyone expects them to marry someday.
But then John Gordon buys the island. He sends his steward to collect rents and squeeze out profits.
The steward doesn’t come alone. He brings his son, and nothing will ever be the same.
