Blog Tour Moonbow by Sheila Hollinghead Review

Moonbow by Sheila Hollinghead
Release Date: December 2013
Publisher: AltWit Press; 308 pages

A widow, a doctor, an unborn child. Three lives are at risk in this high stakes suspense. Die Auserwahlten, the Chosen Ones, have impregnated Gisa with an embryonic clone. Is it evil or just a child? It's up to Dr. Rayden Brooks to untangle the web that keeps them captive and save their lives. But will Gisa trust him?

This was a different story for me, but it seemed very intriguing so I couldn't pass up the chance to read it. It was a different twist and I was really anxious to read what it was about.

The beginning was a bit slower for me to get into, I was a bit confused but one the story did pick up and the main characters were"on the run" it was a non stop action filled ride. This story was action packed from the beginning but once you got into detail with the lives of these characters and the story that was unraveling right before everyone it was an awesome ride.

I love that Gisa and Rayden obviously felt the same about each other, but were too afraid to admit it, You know in the end its going to end up very happy. David was a big surprise to me, and I will leave it at that.

The whole idea of a genetic clone and the link to Eva Braun and Hitler was a interesting twist, although very odd, but the idea of it is quite scary. That is a man no one wants to ever deal with again. I love how the tru idea of the clone was never fully figured out I guess you would say. The faith based in the novel is very beautiful and really helps bring the characters around full circle.

I very much enjoyed this book, it was an interesting ride, a different twist and I fully enjoyed reading it!!

About the Author-
Sheila Hollinghead, an army brat, was born in Nuremberg, Germany. When she was ten, her father was stationed in Toul, France where she discovered a treasure trove of books hiding in the furnace room. The house was rumored to be the former headquarters of the Nazi Party with bullet holes decorating the foyer as evidence. The books, sci-fi, mysteries, fantasy, and the classics, opened her mind to the power of story. Today, she is married and lives on a farm in south Alabama with dogs, cats, and chickens. She agrees with Emily Dickinson who said, "I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it until it begins to shine."


Moonbow began as a literal dream. Bless (or curse) my husband. When I told him the strange story, he encouraged me to turn it into a book. I'm not sure if the final manuscript resembles the first shadowy images in the least. Writing morphs and grows into things we cannot imagine when we first put pen to paper.  I hope to continue the growth of the story and further explore the question from my dream: "Are some men born evil? What if they got a second chance?"
