The Hunter's Moon

By O. R. Melling.

Review sketch*: Like other people said, it seems rather disjointed with infodumps that don't blend into the story well. Some things happen rather suddenly and without explanation. Whenever a new person is met, the story is conveniently explained to them with a few lines of narrative and no one has any trouble believing it. When Gwen starts to do too well on her quest, something conveniently comes along to knock her down; when she does poorly, somebody comes along to help her. The characters seem like stereotypes, lacking real depth; I especially wonder what goes on in Findabhair's head.

Conclusion: Not that great.

* I must be feeling lazy today to not rework it into a better flow. Perhaps it's better to be more concise, anyway, even though it doesn't flow? On the other hand, you may have no idea what I'm talking about with any of this. Comments welcome.
