Review: A Creature of Moonlight
A Creature of Moonlight by Rebecca Hahn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The flower girl, Marni, has lived a simple life. Although she is aware that the Gramps who has raised her was the former king, she stays in her small home away from the castle in order to keep alive. The current king, her uncle, killed her mother years before. He had his reasons. Marni’s mother had run away into the woods and had returned pregnant. It is believed that Marni is half dragon and therefore must be kept close and watched. Marni is the only heir to the throne and must now choose between the kingdom that needs a ruler and the dragon that seems to be sending the magical woods after her.
A Creature of Moonlight is a debut novel that will capture the reader at the start and introduce a variety of twists and turns throughout. Hahn has created a strong heroine and a breathtaking storyline that will entertain the reader the whole way through. This stand-alone novel is refreshing in this time of trilogies and longer series. Readers who have enjoyed the adventures in Bitterblue will want to delve into this book and those who love dragon lore will be delighted with the “old tales” introduced within.
