A lost opera by Rossini, a potential Nazi who vanished without a trace, secrets, lies, faked identities and a tragic death in the present times but who is the mysterious woman hiding in the heart of Alentejo, a scarcely inhabited region of southern Portugal?

The BookViral Review:

With its undeniable aura of mystery, Time of the Furtive Moon proves to be a genuine page-turner with Mota’s prose delivering an engaging blend of grace and style. A read grounded in exhaustive research and a plot brimming with the cliff-hangers readers expect from the genre it’s one of those novels that constantly seems on the edge of startling revelations as Mota spins multiple narrative threads to keep intrigue to the fore.

Having a music researcher as her novel’s heroine was a clever choice as it makes the task of delivering historical facts to the reader that much easier and Paulina is well suited to Mota’s dual narrative structure. Allowing us to slip between multiple time periods whilst eliminating the need to send her on wild-goose chases for the sake of plausibility.

With her plot marshalled around an eclectic cast of vividly realised characters, Mota doesn’t overplay them but through disparate her timelines, she masterfully manipulates our expectations as she explores the terrain of fate and the human heart. An exploration that combines intellect, emotion, mystery, romance and startling revelations as she leads us towards a perfectly pitched denouement.

A superb read and one sure to find favour with those who appreciate the finer arts, Time of the Furtive Moon is highly recommended!

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
