A young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a perfect little Dragon must unlock the dangerous magic buried deep within her in this coming-of-age fairy tale by the acclaimed author of The Wizarding Boy.

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a child as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will stop her from terrorizing their town. But the witch of the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with the Wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and the Perfect Little Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues abandoned children and hands them over to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nurturing the children with starlight on the journey.

One year, Xan accidentally fed a baby with moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides to raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own child. As Luna nears her 13th birthday, her magic begins to appear to go according to plan – but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Before long, Luna will have to protect those who have protected her – even if it means the end of the safe, loving world she’s always known.

The acclaimed author of The Wizarding Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale that is destined to become a modern classic.

I started the book in hardcover, but became too busy to finish it. I thank the stars and the moon because I finally finished it in audio form. The narrator is AMAZING. A story shared with your children or alone in your car. Magical, imaginative folktales and unexpected culmination of several storylines will leave you spellbound.

I received this book without realizing it was a YA youth novel and I was a bit disappointed at first but even as a 33 year old woman I still think the story is pretty sweet and well written. Definitely a good book to blow off some steam after reading a lot.
