They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars.

That was a long time ago.

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn.

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark.

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

Moth -- a fantasy novel for fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings


  • Great Imaginative Story

    By Looking for a better app
    This book is not a genre that I would normally read, but it was the first book in a long time I didn't use as an aid to help me get to sleep. This book had quite the opposite effect. I couldn't put it down. Strong, evolving characters coupled with imaginative, descriptive scenes left me turning pages and reading in bed with one eye open, fighting exhaustion, because I didn't want to go to sleep without finding out what happened next. I fell in love with Koyee, her struggles, her strength, and her adaptability. I'm looking forward to losing more sleep when I read the rest of the series.
  • Interesting premise, but...

    The book just doesn't reach a climax until the very end. It could easily cut 200 pages short without any difference. The characters are very shallow and present any development. Predictable developments, predictable ending. The only reason I didn't give up reading it, was that I had already invested too much time giving it a chance to get better and felt that I should as well finish it then. Other than that, won't be reading any other book from this series or author.

    Great story but same old descriptive words used tirelessly over and over. How many times are you going to smash someone with your sword or arrow. Sadly his other books use the same descriptives.

    This book was a bit slow at first, but the novel picks up and picks up very fast. Near the end of the book I couldn't put down my iPod. The ending gave me the jitters, and I need MORE!!!!! Picking up this book for free was awesome, and the next book is at a good price. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy or si-fi.

    I'm not much of a sci-fi/fantasy reader, but decided to give this book a try, as it was offered as a free e-book. I couldn't put it down. The story line is engrossing and the details of this fantasy world emerged from page to page. I pictured it as a cross between lord of the rings and avatar, but this is a definite read for everyone. I'm excited to purchase the remaining books in this series and read them all...seeing as I finished this in a week's time.
  • Great read!

    I enjoyed this book. It is very detailed in it's descriptions and lets you "paint a picture" in your head very easily. I liked the characters, the story, and the message of peace and hope in Torin and Koyee.
  • Horrible Plot

    By Jshdhsfhfbdjsijadj
    There's no way they would even be alive. If the world didn't rotate than one side would be brutally hot and the other would be frigid and cold.
  • Amazing!

    This is a great book. So far I have read 3/6 of the books in this series and it continues to wow me!
