Moon Chosen was an intriguing read, however as a fan of The House of Night series i didnt enjoy this as much as i would have liked.
The length of the book is over six hundred pages and it felt there could have been a more direct approach to the world and character building that could have cut the book down quite a bit and not had me wondering if I should continue on reading in the beginning.
In addition to the fantasy element there’s a love story here that transcends local allegiance and world view. Like Romeo and Juliet, the moon and sun crossed couple of Moon Chosen have history and culture to transcend but hopefully a happier ending awaits them.
