Rating: 2.0/5

Publishers Description: Faith and Moonlight is the first novella of the YA fantasy series of the same name. It is the tale of two orphans who get the chance of a lifetime, told in a fast-paced, 90-minutes. Reviewers compare it to Harry Potter, Divergent, and Ender’s Game. It is recommended for readers who enjoy fantasy, young adult, school stories, magic, and coming of age tales.

Review: This was really quite good. Another Potter-esque school for the talented. Surprised that such an over-used prop for most fantasy YA novels was a success. Too bad it fell into a novella which tends to truncate interest rather than generate a thirst for more.

An easy 4 stars if written to full length (I am guessing).
