I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I read book one of the Starlight’s Shadow series, Hunt the Stars, because the cover has a blurb from one of my insta-buy authors, Ilona Andrews. And I loved it! So much that I listened to all of Jessie Mihalik’s backlist on audio – also fantastic! 

Which means that when I discovered the second book in the Starlight’s Shadow series available on NetGalley, I immediately downloaded it (hooray for auto-approvals!)

About Eclipse the Moon

Kee and Varro fought on opposite sides of an intergalactic war. Now they’re on the same side – trying to prevent the war from starting again but someone seems determined to instigate an interstellar incident. 

So hacker extraordinaire Kee volunteers to go undercover while stern (but so gooey in the center) Varro follows her to act as protector and backup.

My thoughts about Eclipse the Moon

This is a delicious opposites attract, close proximity romance set on a space opera stage. You don’t have to read Hunt the Stars but you should because it definitely sets the stage for Kee and Varro to take the relationship to the next level.

Eclipse the Moon gives you classic sunshine and grump – Kee is a sunny dispositioned, snickerdoodle loving sprite while Varro is a classic dark, silent, and broody. 

The plot is fast-paced, the world building is complex without being confusing and peopled with diverse characters.
