About the Book
"My most beloved brothers, and father,
I feel as though I have failed you. With Mother's death and the threat of Ciatlllait's dark powers looming, I am not sure I am strong enough to save you. But I will try.
War is coming. I am just one girl. I feel so small, but I will draw strength from Mother's final words: You are never alone."
One vow. One curse. One thousand moons.
While Princess Aowyn's six brothers are favored by their father, Aowyn is the jewel in her mother's crown. When the Queen dies, Aowyn takes a vow to protect her brothers and father from the hungry eyes of the queen's handmaiden, Ciatlllait - who is more than she seems.
In order to save her family, Aowyn risks a dangerous deal with the dark creature Sylas Mortas. But magic comes with a price: and Aowyn soon realizes the one she has paid is too steep.
Only true love can reverse the spell...but it will take one thousand moons. Can she keep to her word with war and romance on the horizon?
Set in a Celtic world, "Moonlight" is the story of faith and true love woven through a breathtaking coming of age retelling of the classic fairy tale "The Swan Princess"
I was enthralled immediately by this wonderfully touching story! The characters are complex, the storyline is enchanting and the action is constant. The tragedy was poignantly felt along with the emotional battles. I love the recreation of a well known fairy tail, yet it was still kept fresh with new twists. The writing was significantly better than her first book and tons more enjoyable! I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely story!
