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.

***Cianna, #NerdGirlSunshine’s Review***

I was first introduced to Daniel’s writing style when I got to read an earlier book about dragons. I love dragons. I couldn’t resist. But now, Daniel has come out with a new book. Moth, a world of half darkness and half light. Two groups of people unbelieving of the other. 1 group of radical monks that want to stir things up. There you have the premise for this fantasy novel. I couldn’t believe how much I loved this book. My ARC was wonderful. There’s so much too this book and his writing style they over layers together. We have a few different viewpoints throughout the book, and none of it is confusing. It’s actually completely interesting to see the different cultures and what their thoughts are, who their villains are, and how their plans are going to overlap. Koyee was a lovely character, flawed, physically but beautifully written. Torin and Bailey’s relationship was interesting and there were countless times I wanted to slap bailey because she was just being unbearable.

 Overall, this story has a wonderful moral, an enthralling epic journey and wonderfully written characters. Daniel writes perfect fantasy in the vein of Tolkien and doesn’t shy away from the gore, but provides us a lovely story which causes us to think. I loved it. His writing is wonderful and I can’t wait for more.
