Moonburner by Claire Luana
Release Date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: Soul Fire Press
Publisher: Soul Fire Press
When 17-year old Kai is exposed as a female sorceress—a moonburner, she knows the punishment is death. Despite the odds against her, Kai escapes her fate and undertakes a harrowing journey to a land where moonburners are revered and trained as warriors.
But the moonburner citadel is not the place of refuge and learning that Kai imagined. The ongoing war against the male sorcerers, or sunburners, has led the citadel leadership down a dark path that could spell the end of all magic. Armed with a secret from her past and a handsome but dangerous ally in the sunburner prince, Kai may be the only one able to prevent the destruction of her people.
Claire Luana grew up in Edmonds, Washington, reading everything she could get her hands on and writing every chance she could get. Eventually, adulthood won out and she turned her writing talents to more scholarly pursuits, graduating from University of Washington School of Law and going to work as a commercial litigation attorney at a mid-sized law firm.
While continuing to practice law, Claire decided to return to her roots and try her hand once again at creative writing. Her first novel, Moonburner, will be published in 2016 with Soul Fire Press, an imprint of Christopher Matthews Publishing. She is currently working on the sequel, Sunburner. In her (little) remaining spare time, she loves to hike, travel, run, play with her two dogs, and of course, fall into a good book.

I really like Moonburners. I love the story, the ages old feud between sun and moonburners. The world that Claire has created is amazing. The story itself was very entertaining and kept me reading late into the night. I loved all of the characters although seishen were my favorites, Ryn and Quitsu in particular. Our heroine, Kai was engaging, likable and strong, while our villains were evil enough to make your blood run cold at their actions.
Was It Worth Reading?: Absolutely!! I totally loved Moonburners and while it ended on a pretty good note, I am still waiting anxiously for Sunburners. I had a hard time reviewing this book because any words I write will not do it justice. Moonburners rocks and receives 5 out of 5 crossbows.
