Luna was the young sacrifice her village made to the evil witch. She was also the infant that said evil witch found all alone in the woods. Instead of the witch giving the child to a loving family in another village (like she has done before) the witch accidently feeds Luna magic.
This was a more complex story than I was expecting. Not only is it a story about adoption and magic, it is a story about village politics, aging, and madness. It is a book about the strength of a mother’s love and a book about a boy standing up to his family.
There were so many elements that seemed at times out of place but by the end of the book wove together to make a truly memorable story. I can see why this book is getting so much praise and I truly believe it deserves it.
I gave this book a B.
The only thing holding me back from the A rating is the audiobook. I wasn’t a fan of the narration.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
