Moon Chosen is the first book in the Tales of a New World series. Cast spent large portions of the book developing fascinating characters and world building, yet they were weaved expertly and actually added to the depth of the storyline. There were many side stories that are yet to be explored, so readers will definitely want to look for the next book in the series when it is released. Tales of a New World is a great new series based in a dystopian world with just a hint of supernatural powers thrown in.
