Seventy years. Seventy years the elven prince has been lost to the darkness, assumed dead by his people and endlessly broken for a book that connects to the hidden realm of his ancestors, a land untouched by evil.
And now a light in the shadows. A chance for freedom. But those willing to help him come from the unlikeliest of worlds.
The orphan girl, yearning for a loving family, and the boy who won't leave her side. A healer maiden given an unexpected chance for a life beyond narrowed expectations. A grieving creature flown far from home.
They all search for something and now their fates are tied to his. If their quest for life can pull him from the dark mire in which his soul drowns, then perhaps he can be saved.
Or else he will drag them all down to a fate worse than death.
The beginning of an epic saga, MOONSCRIPT is a journey of innocence, despair, and redemption.
Seven illustrations by the author exclusively included in the paperback edition!
An elf haunted by his past, a girl dissatisfied with her monotonous present, a withered king looking to the future. If you love elves, stories of redemption, fantasy, stories about quests and strangers becoming friends, or Christian fiction, I highly recommend Moonscript!!!
The writing is poetic and captivating. Every time I had to put down the book, I couldn't wait for the moment I could return to Aselvia!
Another aspect that makes this fantasy read so delightful is the characters! Each of them (even side characters) is so fleshed out, and their choices and motives seem realistic.
Even in dark moments (which this book definitely has), hope and light shine through.
I came to love Errance, Tryss, Tellie, and Kelm, and I can't wait until my adventures with them can continue.
The ending wrapped up so neatly, I was left wondering where the next book will go. But wherever that is, I'm excited to follow along!
