Those of you who have read “The Moon Cried Blood” already know that it’s central protagonist, 13 year old Tisha is a young lady of African American and Mexican American heritage living in Los Angeles in the mid 1970s. In this gritty work of dark fantasy and urban fiction, the teen comes to know that she is one of a long line of witches called “Luna” whose powers are connected to the cycles of the moon.
Here is the official description of the book:
It is said that the Wolf may howl at the Moon, but the Moon never howls at the Wolf. In the gritty urban streets of Los Angeles in 1975, Leticia Gordon is forced to come to terms with many things: the tragic death of her stepmother and baby sister in a car accident, fear she’ll wind up in foster care, and the sudden revelation she belongs to a long line of powerful witches known as Luna – who exhibit first power upon reaching womanhood. Running from foes natural and supernatural, will her newfound powers be the turning point that elevates her position of honor, or will it destroy her like the dark forces that consumed her father? In a world turned upside down where time itself seems in flux, in whom can she trust?
Here is an Amazon customer review of the work:
5.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful imagery September 29, 2012Format:Paperback
Cycles of the moon, Generations of women, a young woman unaware of her incredible gift. A delicate weaving of history, character development and esoteric overlay that makes for an interesting saga. I read it twice, I missed a lot in the first round with all the symbolism. A lot of work went into the background and technical aspects of the writing itself and it shows.”
