Book Review of Moonlight A Fairytale Retelling by Ann Hunter

Moonlight-by-Ann-HunterWelcome back to another Write On Purpose book review. I review  well-written books, highlighting what makes each good from the reader’s perspective and what writing skills and techniques make it an irresistible read. Thus, each review serves both writers and readers.

Last week, I reviewed The Subtle Beauty by Ann Hunter. This week I'm reviewing a prequel novella in the Crowns of the Twelve series called Moonlight. As before, I received a free Kindle copy of the book in exchange for my honest book review on several social networks and my site.

Moonlight is a retelling of the swan princess fairy tale. Here is he info from Amazon:

"My most beloved brothers, and father, With Mother's death and the threat of Ciatlllait's dark powers looming, I am not sure I am strong enough to save you. But I will try. War is coming. I am just one girl. I feel so small, but I will try to draw strength from Mother's final words: You are never alone." --Aowyn One vow. One curse. One thousand moons. While Princess Aowyn's six brothers are favored by their father, Aowyn is the jewel in her mother's crown.
