‘Where The Moon Has Been’ is a poignant and dexterously penned Fantasy novel. Honestly, I cannot recommend this book enough. Fantasy has always been one of my most favorite genres & this book just quadrupled my love for it. Despite the hefty length, the book just whizzed by like the breeze. The prologue was enough to lure the reader into the exquisite, rich & mystical land of Miraven.
The story build-up was descriptive and gradual. The world building was flawless. The author has a vivid writing style, one that sucks the readers in. While reading the book, I could feel myself experiencing the same emotions as that of the characters & I could feel my heart pounding in anticipation of what would happen next.
The pace was perfect & the story line was pretty unprecedented. I found that the author is a pretty gifted writer. As I mentioned before, the book is pretty hefty BUT there is absolutely NO information dump anywhere in the novel.
The characters are lucidly penned, and the fact that they bear significant resemblance to reality made them ten times more relatable to me. Because of the beautifully sketched characters, the story, despite being a fantasy, was gripping. It was hard to put the book down once I started reading it.
The author was successful in bringing to life a fantasy world full of magic, lore, shape shifters, much much more! It goes without saying; I’d definitely be recommending this book to all the Fantasy fans out there.
Trust me when I say, people, this book has made its way among my top five Fantasy reads of all time.
