Review of When Copper Suns Fall
By KaSonndra Leigh

I read this novel as a chapter a day read, and let me tell you, it was really difficult to hold back and not race on through! The last five chapters I did read in one setting-I simply could not wait longer.
This is a very complex, incredibly well-thought-out, urban fantasy/paranormal/supernatural/alchemical/scientific/dystopian story, which I am happy is to be the first in a series-because there are a lot of secrets, multiple characters, and backstory of which I wish to read more! There is so much content in this book, a fully-imagined and fully-articulated world-building, much to be admired and enjoyed. Set in a future area which we today would consider eastern North Carolina, society following “the Tidal Wars” is very restricted, according to genetics rather than by wealth or merit. Life is as rigid as during the Middle Ages, and those “without” (commoners) are restricted to living outside the walled enclaves. Those within the walls are subject to the governmental entity of the enclave, and the border guards and “dark soldiers.” It is much worse than the Orwellian creations of “1984.” Even in such a society, though, rebellion exists, and here it takes the form of descendants of angels-both the good and the fallen.
I won’t say more because I don’t want to reveal any of this totally complex and astounding novel-I’ll just say-if you’re read it, well, read it again. If you’ve missed out so far-what are you waiting for? “When Copper Suns Fall” rocks!!

Review of When Silver Moons Rise by KaSonndra Leigh
(Lost Immortals Book Two)

I have marveled at KaSonndra Leigh’s ability to manifest her creative imagination and develop a world-building framework that boggles my mind, since reading “When Copper Suns Fall” (Lost Immortals Book One). Ms. Leigh’s vast imagination constructs not just one world or dimension, but parallel worlds, then peoples those worlds with varied species, develops their backgrounds, connects them, interweaves their secrets and their agendas, all while making them seem realistic and likely. Reading her novels is akin for me to viewing a medieval tapestry: so much to see, so much to comprehend, I could spend hours and days astounded.

For those readers who have already enjoyed “When Copper Suns Fall,” I can tell you that “When Silver Moons Rise” is even better-if that’s possible! I truly enjoyed this book, and yes, your favourite characters: Faris, Chela, Seth, Micah, Jalen, Lexa, and many others are here once again, still with their inevitable problems to solve, relationship obstacles, and as always, the overweening umbrella of the Tainted and their desire to foment chaos and to destroy angel-bloods. Adventurous, romantic, emotionally wringing: “When Silver Moons Rise” is a don’t miss and I can’t wait for the next in the series!

The author generously provided me with an advance reader’s copy in return for my provision of a fair and impartial review.
