Review: A Trace of Moonlight by Allison Pang

A Trace of Moonlight (Abby Sinclair #3) by Allison Pang
Urban Fantasy, Fae, Demons, Angels
Mass Market Paperback $7.99 (381 pages, POCKET)
Ebook $7.99
Drinking from the waters of lethe and offering herself up as Faerie’s sacrificial Tithe . . . these just might be the least of Abby Sinclair’s problems.
Abby’s pact with a daemon—whether or not she remembers making it—is binding, so she’d better count herself lucky that (in the words of a daemon who knows better) there’s nearly always a loophole. But her friends’ reckless attempts to free her, well intentioned though they may be, set off a disastrous chain of events. In no time at all, Abby turns her incubus lover mortal, then gets herself killed, cursed, and married to an elven prince whose mother wants her dead. On top of everything else, she’s lost the Key to the CrossRoads to her mortal enemy, who promptly uses his restored power to wreak havoc on the OtherWorld and put its very existence in jeopardy. Only one person can make things right again, but to find her, Abby must place her trust in allies of mixed loyalties, and conquer her nightmares once and for all.

Conclusive or Conclusion? (4 stars)

I think A TRACE OF MOONLIGHT has been a difficult review for me because it's such a transitional book. The majority of plot threads established in the previous installments of the Abby Sinclair series reach a boiling point and things get more than a little crazy. There's a lot of story packed into this one!

What made it difficult to review for me was just that it wasn't quite as funny as it's predeccesors and it took off in unexpected directions. It wasn't unenjoyable, just different. The whole time I felt like something was missing that I still haven't been able to put my finger on. What compacted that was that it ended in such a way I couldn't quite see there being another book to follow. Not that it ended badly, just vaguely enough I got the impression the future of the series hasn't been decided by the publisher.

Overall, it's a satisfying conclusion to the story arcs that have been previously established but I doubt I'm the only fan who was left feeling a sense of concern as to the further adventures of these much loved characters. If you've enjoyed the series for far it's not one to miss but be prepared for the possibility that it'll be a long time before we see another Abby book.

Notes: Purchased by me.
