Staff Reviews

I am a huge fan of Murderbot so I thought I would see if Wells is as adept at fantasy. She is. I am always attracted to books where the main characters are not human (or vampire) and their society does not mirror our own. The shape-shifting Raksura fit the bill nicely. Their society (and reproduction) are non-human, but Moon, the outsider, is utterly relatable and deeply sympathetic. Can't wait to read the others.

— Lisa


Moon has spent his life hiding what he is--a shape-shifter able to transform himself into a winged creature of flight. An orphan with only vague memories of his own kind, Moon tries to fit in among the tribes of his river valley, with mixed success. Just as Moon is once again cast out by his adopted tribe, he discovers a shape-shifter like himself... someone who seems to know exactly what he is, who promises that Moon will be welcomed into his community.

What this stranger doesn't tell Moon is that his presence will tip the balance of power... that his extraordinary lineage is crucial to the colony's survival... and that his people face extinction at the hands of the dreaded Fell Now Moon must overcome a lifetime of conditioning in order to save himself--and his newfound kin.
