Moonlands – Book Review
Author, Steven Savile
Fifteen-year-old Ashley has a complicated life. There’s no doubt her overachieving parents love her, but they are wrapped up in their own worlds for so much of the time it leaves her feeling like she’s alone.
Like a lot of teenagers, Ashley dreams of other worlds, but unlike a lot of teenagers her world is about to collapse as rifts to an ancient Fae Kingdom begin to open all around her. With the arrival of of a supernatural hit-squad intent on killing her, and an unexpected inheritance, Ashley’s London is about to become a magical and mysterious warzone where the prize is Ashley herself.
Ashley has to find out the secrets of her own life before she is killed. Balancing ancient prophecies, schoolwork and the love of her life is difficult to say the least! Take part of the wonderful world of Moonlands.
Author, Steven Sevile, has written a tantalizing tale of a young girl who finds out that not only is there another realm to her world, but that she has a place of royalty in that world. The characters are strong, the world’s are descriptive, the novel is loaded with adventure, a dab of romance, and plenty of terror that will leave the reader sitting on the edge of their seat.
The main character, Ashley, grows-up fast as she realizes all is not what it seems. She meets new people, witnesses a murder, and finds out she is not who she thought she was. The tale is full of ups and downs, similar to a roller coaster ride.
Personally, I loved it. I recommend it to fantasy readers young and old alike.
I received a free PDF copy of the novel from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.
