Title: Moonset
Author: Scott Tracey
Series: The Legacy of Moonset #1
Publisher: Flux 
Publication Date: April 8, 2013
Length: 384 Pages

Moonset, a coven of such promise . . . Until they turned to the darkness.
After the terrorist witch coven known as Moonset was destroyed fifteen years ago—during a secret war against the witch Congress—five children were left behind, saddled with a legacy of darkness. Sixteen-year-old Justin Daggett, son of a powerful Moonset warlock, has been raised alongside the other orphans by the witch Congress, who fear the children will one day continue the destruction their parents started.
A deadly assault by a wraith, claiming to work for Moonset’s most dangerous disciple, Cullen Bridger, forces the five teens to be evacuated to Carrow Mill. But when dark magic wreaks havoc in their new hometown, Justin and his siblings are immediately suspected. Justin sets out to discover if someone is trying to frame the Moonset orphans . . . or if Bridger has finally come out of hiding to reclaim the legacy of Moonset. He learns there are secrets in Carrow Mill connected to Moonset’s origins, and keeping the orphans safe isn’t the only reason the Congress relocated them ...

Scott Tracey is a YA author who lived on a Greyhound for a month, wrote his illustrated autobiography at the age of six, and barely survived Catholic school (and definitely not for the reasons you might think).
He is the author of WITCH EYES, chosen as one of Amazon’s Best LGBT Books of 2011, as well as an ALA Popular Paperback in the Forbidden Romance category.  The final book in the WITCH EYES trilogy, PHANTOM EYES, will be released in the fall of 2013.
He is also the author of MOONSET, a new series which will be released April 8, 2013, as well as a contributor to the SHADOWHUNTERS & DOWNWORLDERS anthology, edited by Cassandra Clare.
His career highlights include: accidentally tripping a panic alarm which led to nearly being shot by the police; attacked in a drive-thru window by a woman wielding a baked potato, and once moving cross country for a job only to quit on the second day.
His gifts can be used for good or evil, but rather than picking a side, he strives for BOTH (in alternating capacity) for his own amusement.
I have been a fan of Scott Tracey since I first read Witch Eyes, and I could not wait to experience his new series. Moonset is the first book in The Legacy of Moonset series, and it is unbelievably phenomenal. The five children of Moonset are the black sheep of the witching world, simply because of the travesties their parents committed when they were still in diapers. While they may not all be biological siblings, they are a family.

The oldest is Malcolm Denton, but he does not want anything to do with the magic that destroyed his family and his life. That leaves Justin Dagget as the spoke person and quasi leader, who is forced to deal with his twin, Jenna’s antics. Jenna is a notorious troublemaker, whose actions have resulted in the children of Moonset being repeatedly moved. Cole Sutter is the second youngest, and he is mischievous and likes to follow in Jenna’s shadow. Bailey is the youngest, and she is the most effected by the numerous moves and the constant changing of schools.

Moonset keeps the action coming from the very beginning. Just when you get comfortable, it ramps up the pace. It is a roller coaster ride of a read, with twists, turns, ups, and downs, but it is the best kind of roller coaster ride, terrifying but you are completely in love with it at the same time. I am seriously at a loss of words at how to describe how much a loved this book. I dropped everything I was doing and even made my daughter late for school just so I could finish a few more pages.

Now I will be sitting here waiting, eagerly waiting, for the next book in the series to see what is going to happen to the Moonset kids. I guess I will have to fill the void with Phantom Eyes when it comes out in October. I have said before and I will say it again, Scott Tracey is a genius.
