Linda Nevins has taught English literature at the University of Michigan. The same could be said of Renaissance Moon, Linda Nevin's novel. While the story is at times visceral and vivid, it never stoops to sensationalism in place of a well-developed plot and fascinating characters. Both are remarkably involved and admirable characters.

Ms Nevins starts out with an interesting idea, but her Greek mythology is flawed. I would expect more from a scholar. After finding her errors in mythology, I kept reading to see if the mistakes could be overlooked for the quality of the writing. Instead, I find that she makes Pagans looks like blood-crazed madmen and -women. I grant you, this is a work of fiction, and so portrayals of characters in the book should not be taken as the way modern Pagans really are, but there are an awful lot of folks who think Harry Potter is teaching children witchcraft...
At best, this is mediocre fiction. The main character is not terribly likeable, and that makes it hard to care what happens. At worst, this book paints an ugly picture of Pagans, which should not be believed under any circumstances.

Book left me with a horrible after taste. Towards the end I could care less what happened to the shrewd boring main character. At one point I felt the story drag on so much, I found myself turning pages to get to the next point when the story would pick up. I feel like more could have been done here,especially when you're bringing in elements of mythology, but I did not find it. I get the whole transition of Selene to Diana to Hecate, but the story, the characters weren't alive enough for me. The only thing vivid in this book are descriptions of the settings & the paintings, which I enjoyed, but not much else. I donated this book right back to the thrift store it came from.

"'Short, bloody, sexy, and fascinating'" a minor character says of heroine Selene Catcher's writing. The same could be said of Renaissance Moon, Linda Nevin's novel. While the story is at times visceral and vivid, it never stoops to sensationalism in place of a well-developed plot and fascinating characters. The novel follows Selene Catcher, the intellectual, indulgent heiress via the account of Giovanni Corio, the charming and self-effacing Jesuit priest. Both are remarkably involved and admirable characters. Selene is a scholar of the mysteries of the Renaissance, but she is also a secret priestess of the triple goddess Artemis, whose stages of cerebral maiden, merciless huntress, and unearthly crone evolve Selene throughout the story. The ending is much forshadowed and has a heavy sense of inescapability, but readers will want to read on to see what panache Nevins carries it with. I truly enjoyed the two major settings of the story: the bustling and pretentious historic villas of Italy and the dark winter woodlands of the northern United States. Both played a great part in giving the novel its fantastic and remorable aura. In addition, the book itself is lovely and elegant. I have read it many, many times since I bought it and would recommend it to almost anyone.
