Review of Two Moons of Sera (Vol. 1) by Pavarti K. Tyler


Two Moons of Sera by Pavarti K. Tyler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Buy on Amazon

The story of this book takes place in a unique world with two very different sets of people. The Sualwets live in the sea, though they can survive on land as well for a prolonged period of time. The Erdlanders are more like us and live on land only. There is a war going on between them, and there is a lot of distrust and hatred. In the middle of this war, Nilafay, a Sualwet gets pregnant with an Erdlander’s child and hence Sera, her daughter has the characteristics of both. I loved the premise of the world created by the author and I believe that there is tremendous potential in this plot. However, that does not come through in this first part. I am quite sure that this will not be the case if and when we read further.

Both the main characters in the book, Sera and Tor, really work well. They bath have a lot in common, and they immediately become attracted to each other, which I can completely understand. They both have something that is broken within them, and are both unique. They both have also lived away from civilization for a very long time and so feel somewhat out of place when they enter the civilized world. I loved the way in which they meet, how they get to know each other and how their relationship progresses in this book. Tor, who is the other main character in the book besides Sera, seems to have magic in him which adds a new dimension to the book. I’m quite interested in knowing how this relationship will progress further as the book continues.

Piece by Piece, Step by Step – by Pavarti K Tyler


My novel Two Moons of Sera is being released as a serial novel.  This is a very old approach to publishing that I’m gambling will make the experience of reading 2MOS more engaging, dynamic and fun.

In the 1800s, most popular fiction was released in serial format, either individually or as part of a magazine.  Even Charles Dickens released a number of his novels this way and more recently Steven King published The Plant as a serial.  The reasons for this vary from economic to cultural.  However, publishing in this manner meant two things: 1 – The reader had to wait between sections and 2 – The author had to write in a manner that would make the reader want more.

Arabian Nights is based around the idea of a serial novel.  For 1001 nights Scheherazade entertained King Shahriyar by telling him stories.  When the story ended, she was sure to be executed.  By continuing the story and ending each night with a cliff hanger she managed to keep him enthralled and willing to extend her life for just one more night.

Quite a bit of talent that would take, to tell an engaging story that ends in just the right place to make you want more!

Some may think this publishing style is a scheme to make more money, making readers pay for each new section.  For me, this has nothing to do with it.  The final ebook will be $4.99.  However, if you purchase it now it is only $0.99.  You will have to wait for each update but the rest of the book will be yours to download completely free of charge.

My reasoning for doing this is so that early readers of Two Moons of Sera are rewarded for going on this adventure with me.  As each volume is added the price will increase, mean that those who come to the story later won’t get the same great price and experience as those who buy it now.

It is my hope that by releasing Two Moons of Sera in this manner the reader will be able to engage and lose themselves in the story: live in and experience it more fully.  I for one am likely to devour a book.  I read the entire Twilight Saga in one week.  That’s an astronomical number of pages.  But what happens is you miss details and forget plots, all in the interest of consuming the story.

While I hope that you love 2MOS so much you want to read it all at once, I also want to invite you to review, comment, twitter or email about it.  Join me in the Super Secret 2MOS Insiders Fan Page (you can only get in by following the link at the end of the ebook so grab a copy and join the fun).

Two Moons of Sera is a special book, it’s a journey that I’m thrilled to have you accompany me on.  I hope that by releasing Part I now and Part II in January and so on, we will have the chance to experience the characters and plots deeply and together.
