Darci's Review 

The Crimson Moth is a fantastical new fantasy novel that follows the life of Rune,  granddaughter of a high witch and traitor to witch-kind. Disguised as a ditsy socialite, Rune masks her true affiliation - she is the Crimson Moth, a witch sympathiser and vigilante.

In a world of genocidal war and witch hunters, Rune does whatever is necessary to save the innocent witches from persecution. She even courts her best friend's brother, Gideon the Captain of the Witch Guard, for insider information. But the closer she gets to Gideon, the more she wonders whether this attraction she is faking is becoming real. 

With the glitz and glamour of The Great Gatsby and the heart and politics of Serpent & Dove, Ciccarelli has produced a heartbreaking tale of moral ambiguity and the duplicity of love. A solid 4 star rating from me. 

Publisher's Review 

Enemies-to-lovers doesn't get more high stakes than a witch and a witch hunter falling in love in bestselling author Kristen Ciccarelli's latest romantic fantasy.

On the night Rune’s life changed forever, blood ran in the streets. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating revolution, witches have been diminished from powerful rulers to outcasts ruthlessly hunted due to their waning magic, and Rune must hide what she is.

Spending her days pretending to be nothing more than a vapid young socialite, Rune spends her nights as the Crimson Moth, a witch vigilante who rescues her kind from being purged. When a rescue goes wrong, she decides to throw the witch hunters off her scent and gain the intel she desperately needs by courting the handsome Gideon Sharpe – a notorious and unforgiving witch hunter loyal to the revolution – who she can't help but find herself falling for.

Gideon loathes the decadence and superficiality Rune represents, but when he learns the Crimson Moth has been using Rune’s merchant ships to smuggle renegade witches out of the republic, he inserts himself into her social circles by pretending to court her right back. He soon realizes that beneath her beauty and shallow façade, is someone fiercely intelligent and tender who feels like his perfect match. Except, what if she’s the very villain he’s been hunting?

Kristen Ciccarelli’s The Crimson Moth is the thrilling start to a romantic fantasy duology where the only thing more treacherous than being a witch…is falling in love.
