Moonscript Book Review + Blog Tour!

Seventy years the elven prince has been lost to the darkness, assumed dead by his

untouched by evil.
And now a light in the shadows. A chance for freedom. But those willing to help him come from
the unlikeliest of worlds.
The orphan girl, yearning for a loving family, and the boy who won't leave her side. A healer
maiden given an unexpected chance for a life beyond narrowed expectations. A grieving creature
flown far from home.
They all search for something and now their fates are tied to his. If their quest for life can pull
him from the dark mire in which his soul drowns, then perhaps he can be saved.
Or else he will drag them all down to a fate worse than death.
