      DISCLAIMER I received an eARC of this book from the publisher This does not in any way impact my review view spoiler violence, assassination, torture, addiction, weight loss discussion hide spoiler The moment I heard of MOONSHINE, I was excited to read it Magical speakeasies, aromantic representation, political dealings, and an ensemble cast of queer characters Heck yes So I requested an ARC, even though I m not really a book blogger.All in all, I am glad that I did MOONSHINE is a greatly enjoya [...]

      Check out my book blog for book reviews and other bookish posts I received an ARC of Moonshine from Netgalley Some people had been mentioning that it was an ownvoices book for aromantic representation, and I m always looking for of that.It s ownvoices for aromantic, asexual, genderfluid, and disabled rep major characters.__The part that struck me most was the fantastic worldbuilding Damn It was so elaborate and within the first pages, I could already picture what Soot City looked like and what [...]

    3. Beth Cato says:

      I received this book through the publisher via Netgalley.In this secondary world set riff inspired by the 1920s, Prohibition is in full swing but the prohibited substance isn t alcohol, but mana, also known as moonshine addictive stuff that gives normal folks magical powers while the buzz lasts Daisy is a young woman with a goal of being independent and sophisticated When she takes on a new secretarial position, she has no idea the company is really peddling mana out of their so called warehouse [...]

      There s a brilliant concept here but the execution drags and at 50% I feel like there s half a plot and no characters I m than mildly interested in There s aspects of the world building that I like, but that s about it Just not for me DNFI received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    5. Lucy-May says:

      Fast paced, a fantasy twist on Chicago in the 1920s, an unpredictable plot, with darling characters fabulous writing what could a reader want Seriously, I absolutely loved this read world building is so important to me the world building in Moonshine was phenomenal I m totally obsessed with the world that Jasmine has created I want MORE of it The characters were incredible as well the plot was super original too, so basically this book is near on perfect Disclaimer I was sent an advanced copy o [...]

      ownvoices aromantic rep I know it s a side character but I have to read this nowand also that cover.

    7. Tim says:

      This is a hard review to write as I feel I m almost picking on it for things the book didn t do This is an extreme case of it s not you, it s me, as I would in no way classify this book as a bad novel It was just disappointing at every turn.Look at that plot description I ll wait until you get back To say I was excited for this book was an understatement I read an article about it off some website Maybe Barnes and Noble sci fi blog, I can t honestly remember but I saved the title and author and [...]

      4.5 starsAnother book from the DVsquad and DVpit Woohoo I m delighted that I got a chance to review an ARC As with CITY OF BRASS, this was an enchanting fantasy with a deep connection to its time period.Daisy is a Modern Girl in a sort of post apocalyptic version of the Roaring Twenties, where faeries and ogres and magic all exist Not a magician herself, Daisy has inherited some trinkets from her grandmother that are imbued with magic not enough to cause trouble, but enough to keep soot off her [...]

    9. Crittermom says:

      Moonshine is a fantasy with jazz age pizazz Ashland lies at the foot of a volcano, and Soot City is a bustling metropolis complete with gangsters, speakeasies and Modern Girls flappers straight from the mold But there is something else that defines Soot City the existence of magic.Daisy Dell is the quintessential modern girl, fashionable, educated and ready to take on the world She also has a few tricks up her sleeve the trinkets left to her by her grandmother are magic Her new job seems to be a [...]

    10. Rene Sears says:

      This was such a fun book I am a sucker for the 1920s, and while this is a secondary world setting, Soot City definitely has a 20s feel Daisy Dell is a Modern Girl with a new job as a typist in Soot City, but her boss s company is not all that it seems In Soot City, there are illicit ways of getting mana, an illegal substance that can get you high, or, if you re a magician, power your magic Daisy has a secret of her own her grandmother passed down certain articles that can do magic without mana, [...]

    11. Coolcurry says:

      Moonshine is a debut fantasy novel inspired by the roaring twenties.Daisy wants to be the perfect embodiment of the Modern Girl, stylish and independent However, she also uses arcana and magic is outlawed in Soot City When mercenaries start targeting magicians, Daisy will find herself right in the middle of the bull s eye.Moonshine s biggest failing is plot It s just not compelling, and I think this is due to a number of reasons For one, Daisy isn t driving the plot, she s reacting to it This pa [...]

    12. David Harris says:

      I m grateful to the publisher for an advance e copy via NetGalleyThis is a strange, mixed up yet nevertheless joyful book Set in a world going through something like 1920s era US Prohibition, it strongly evokes the spirit of the Jazz Age our heroine, Daisy Dell, is the very picture of a Modern Girl slender of frame her short, tight curls coifed with a shiny pomade heeled dance shoes dressing either foot and her dark skin complemented by the contrast of daisy yellow, so vibrant as though it was p [...]

    13. Anna says:

      If you enjoy urban fantasy and Thoroughly Modern Millie, you re in for a treat Moonshine is the intersection of fantasy and 1920 s culture you never knew you needed.I really liked this book It was creative and delightful The characters were well built and memorable and minus all the illegal activity, the kind of people you d want to hang out with I felt like I got to grow and learn with Daisy Dell our delightful heroine and that was charming and wonderful She s a real sweetheart caught up in the [...]

    14. Rachel Noel says:

      Free book for an honest review.This book was not what I was expecting, and that s a good thing I genuinely thought this was an alternate, historical fantasy that would take place in 1930 s USA What I got was a fantasy world with as much magic as any other high fantasy world, but with prohibition era aesthetics It was really cool The world is incredibly interesting and I want to know about it I greatly appreciated the difference in approach between Mr Swarz and Daisy His academic, political view [...]

    15. Stephanie says:

      Moonshine is set in an alternate world with the stylings of the 1920s in America, minus some specifics of race relations Daisy Dell is a recent college graduate who needs a job and finds one as a secretary She doesn t exactly suspect that the job will introduce her to a world of bootleggers, illegal magic, and hired killers, but that s exactly what happens.Ms Gower has succeeded in writing a faintly unsavory tale, starring criminals and drug addicts, and yet in providing us with a whole bunch of [...]

    16. A.R. Hellbender says:

      If we were to look at a map of where this story takes place, I get the sense that it would not just be a map of our works with the names changed Though I m usually not a fan of books based on a somewhat recent historical time period being in a different world, this book made it work really well.This is essentially set in the 1920s, but it s not the world as we know it orew it There is a lot of unique world building, complete with fantasy races, and society is nothing like the 1920s would have be [...]

    17. Jay Roberts says:

      Very original tale I liked the character complexity allies could be prickly or disrespectful, while villains were not entirely rotten The story also stays away from the standard kill em all approach so common in today s fantasy, and uses kindness and forgiveness effectively So if you liked Vivian Shaw s Strange Practice 2017 , you ll enjoy Moonshine just as much.

    18. Jessie(Ageless Pages Reviews) says:

      Magic is prohibited in a 1920s feel alt Chicago, but modern girl Daisy gets caught up in bootlegging and local politics Fun and creative ideas but the middle lags.

    19. Martina DF says:

      I have to admit I really wanted Andre and Cyan to have an epic love story

    20. Kelsey says:

      I m not quite sure what to rate this yet, but it was fun Review to come.
