All the Fun of YA written for Adults 

Two Moons of Sera is a Fantasy/Romance and will be released in a serial format. The first volume is just shy of 20,000 words and will be priced at $0.99. Anyone who purchases it will receive all future volumes for free. However if you wait to get it until later, the price will go up with each addition.

My Review:

I LOVE this book! It is in serial form so you are left with missing information that comes gradually and, of course, cliffhangers. Since I am impatient this part is hard for me. However I fell into the story line hard and will definitely finish out the series. 
Sera is, I believe half Sualwet and half Erdlander. She lives with her Sualwet mother, Nilafay,  and is basically shunned by the  Sualwet community. Her mother lives on land with Sera as Sera can only be under water for a shorter time than Nilafay  Her mother goes scavenging for treasures which she brings back to Sera. These they use for their home and with these Sera also learns the Erdlander language. They have lived like this for 16 years, with Nilafay being Sera's only real company.
One day Sera is drying pages from a book her mother found when an Erdlander swiftly steals them away. Sera, not knowing what it was and surprised by the theft, goes after them. At first she tries to decide what the creature is. Then the creature speaks and she knows it is an Erdlander. This is the beginning of Sera realizing how lonely she is. She seeks out the Erdlander. Eventually she befriends him and learns his name is Torkek, or Tor. Tor at first speaks very little, learning more and more words from Sera. She learns he is also an anomaly and is living by himself. Exactly what he is we do not know yet. 
Much of this book is about Sera, her relationship with her mother and then with Tor. This allows us to get to know her and care about her. So when tragedy strikes and Sera needs to run away with Tor, we care deeply and feel her pain, confusion and terror. When the book ended on the cliff hangar I almost died. I have read and loved several series, (Sookie Stackhouse, Midnight Breed, Chicagoland Vampire, Fever, Darkness Within, House of Night to name a few). This is ranking up there with them for me. I cannot wait for the next book.
