Moon Chosen by PC Cast

Welcome to my stop of the Moon Chosen blog tour, a book written by PC Cast.
The name might seem familiar to you. She is more commonly associated with her House of Night series which was co-written.
This is a great first endeavour into solo writing.
Moon Chosen follows the main character Mari, who is half ‘Earth Walker’ and half ‘Companion.’ I will not reveal to you exactly what that means, you must figure it out for yourself when you read the book:)

Here is the synopsis via goodreads:
Chosen to embrace her true identity. Chosen to follow her destiny. Chosen to change her world.

Mari is an Earth Walker, heir to the unique healing powers of her Clan, but she has been forced to turn from her duties, until she is chosen by a special animal ally, altering her destiny forever. When a deadly attack tears her world apart, Mari reveals the strength of her powers and the forbidden secret of her dual nature as she embarks on a mission to save herself and her people. It is not until Nik, the son of the leader from a rival, dominating Tribe, strays across her path that Mari experiences something she has never felt before…

Now evil is coming, and with it, a force more terrible and destructive than the world has ever seen, leaving Mari to cast the shadows from the earth. By breaking Clan Law and forming an alliance with Nik, she must make herself ready. Ready to save her people. Ready to save herself and Nik. Ready to embrace her true destiny…and battle the forces that threaten to destroy them all.

Sounds kinda awesome right?
I will admitted, I was slightly under-whelmed with some aspects of this novel, hence the rating. However, it delivered a really fun reading experience, which flew by despite the size.
That being said, it was a fairly long book. Despite being a quick read, there was definitely some content that probably could have been removed.

I really, really enjoyed the character relationships in this novel. They were authentic and true to the characters.
Mari had a great relationship with her mum Leda, or ‘Mother’ as she would have it.
And the following dynamics later in the novel were definitely interesting.

The post-apocalyptic setting was slowly revealed to the reader in an intriguing and suspenseful manner. Cast was easily able to build suspense and anticipation. Yearning to know what happens, the need for information on what is going on in this world, it really directed the novel on its path.

Mari was an extremely interesting character, who was willing to do things and put herself out there. It was incredible to see her build trust in her own abilities.
One of my other favourite characters was Sora. She is introduced a bit later on into the novel, but it was really fascinating in her role.

Lastly, I think the narration of the novel should be discussed. It was really interesting. This is first book I have read by PC Cast and it was really cool to read her writing style.

If you are a fan of fantasy/ fictional world stories and are fans of PC Cast, read this!!
