Moonshine by Jasmine Gower

Into the Wild

Moonshine Read Online Free - Daisy's starting a new job and stylish city life, but mage-hunters out for her dark magic threaten to destroy her vogue image.

In the flourishing metropolis of Soot City (a warped version of 1920s Chicago), progressive ideals reign and the old ways of magic and liquid mana are forbidden. Daisy Dell is a Modern Girl - stylish, educated and independent - keen to establish herself in the city but reluctant to give up the taboo magic inherited from her grandmother.

Her new job takes her to unexpected places, and she gets more attention than she had hoped for. When bounty hunters start combing the city for magicians, Daisy must decide whether to stay with her new employer - even if it means revealing the grim source of her occult powers.

Check out my book blog for more 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 more of that. It’s ownvoices for aromantic, asexual, genderflu...

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...

Fast paced, a fantasy twist on Chicago in the 1920s, an unpredictable plot, with darling characters & fabulous writing - what more 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 tot...

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...

4.5 stars Another 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, whe...

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 D...

D-I-V-E-R-S-I-T-Y This book checked so many boxes for me. Reading Moonshine was like a breath of fresh air. ✔ Own Voices ✔ Queer rep ✔ Polyamorous characters ✔ Genderfluid characters ✔ 1920's Chicago ✔ Magic ✔ Fantastical creatures (Orgres & Fairies) ✔ Outlaws & Bounty Hunters ✔ Unlik...

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....
