Review: The Hunter's Moon (The Chronicles of Faerie #1) by O.R. Melling

A fantasy "shimmering with magic, myth, and romance,"* now available in paperback
Gwen travels to Ireland to visit her cousin Findabhair, expecting a summer of backpacking, late nights, and the usual road trip adventures. But when Findabhair is kidnapped by the King of Faerie, Gwen must race to save her cousin before the rise of the Hunter's Moon, when the fairies need a human sacrifice.
This first novel in "The Chronicles of Faerie" was praised for "Melling's taut plotting, with its unexpected turns, [that] moves the story quickly to a climax and leaves readers wanting more." ("School Library Journal")
* from "Booklist" (starred review)
Praise for "The Hunter's Moon"
*"A compelling blend of Irish mythology and geography." - "School Library Journal" (starred review)
..."[This] sensation-loaded celebration of Ireland and Faerie will be a powerful draw for many readers." - "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
 What a fun and magical faerie tale. Probably one of the first few popular tales in that genre. The story contains all sorts of mystical creatures. A very enchanting tale. The settings in this book are beautifully described. The storyline has plenty of mysteries. It also has it's fair share of ups & downs and twists & turns. Not enough to lose the important plot points though. With all kinds of magic thrown in for good measure. There are also two main characters. Which is a slightly different way of pulling it all together. One is fun & flighty. The other is serious & steady. As different as night and day. Their opposites compliment each other. This was a really good book. Hope you like it too...Happy Reading :)!!!
