CHARACTERS ↠ Upon a Moon Dark Moor Rebecca Brandewyne Ð 8 CHARACTERS Her and stepmother's cruelty but when her childhood sweetheart Edward falls in love with her stepsister she finds sol. In Upon a Moon Dark Moor the author rewrites Wuthering Heights to suit her Eh I never particularly liked that over the top gothic classic to begin with and this version left me similarly unmovedThe first person narrative of the heroine is annoying what with all her foreboding as you shall soon see dear reader and if I had only known then it would have made such a difference later All these warnings and dire allusions set me up for some epic plot twists and turns but in the end the big reveal was lukewarm The gothic mood is adeuately set though strangely interrupted from time to time by history lessons from the author about international news of the 19th century which has little relevance to the mood or plot of the storyThe best part of this book is not the romance but the several chapters in the beginning that deal with the heroine s childhood and early teens Starting with meeting the hero her mysterious and terrifying Gypsy cousin the illegitimate son of her late uncle their budding relationship and their involvement with a magnificent stallion named Black Magic I thought this was the most emotionally poignant well written and riveting part of the book I had thought it would set me up for a volcanic reunion between the two characters after the hero s inevitable banishment and triumphant return to the heroine s dwelling just like it was after Heathcliff s return to Cathy after his self exile But unfortunately this was the point where the story fizzled outThe heroine was so frustrating wishy washy and dull she made me miss the ever so insufferable Catherine Earnshaw s spirit She is also one of the most TSTL heroines I have encountered in a genre that is saturated with them so this is really telling something How many times does her father have to berate her tell her he hates her and wishes she was dead or never been born strike her and actually try to kill her before she stops every other paragraph with I still couldn t really believe my father hated meWhat treachery scorn dishonesty humiliation cowardice and rejection does the man she supposedly loves have to unleash upon her before she realizes he never cared for herHow much kindness loyalty love protectiveness tenderness and passion can the man who has loved her since he can remember heap upon her before she admits that she is in love with himThe hero stood up uite well to Heathcliff s daunting figure though the author softened him enough to make him a romantic hero He has so many ualities and he is so kick ass in some ways but then the author inserts a couple of bodice ripping moments that seem completely out of place and out of character for him It s like she could not make up her mind whether to write a dark romance starring a cruel but potentially redeemable anti hero or a straightforward romance with a broody but upstanding hero The result is muddled Overall it was interesting and well written enough to keep my attention to the end but this will definitely not be something that I will re read or think about much after its conclusion Elizabeth: Apprenticeship over the top gothic classic to begin with and this version left me similarly unmovedThe first person
