It's amazing this work has only two prior reviews, and is offered free. This is a fantasy adventure, with elves and dwarves, but very close to the human experience. The hero is branded and expelled from his society due to a devious princess. He travels to a new world which is in a process which resembles the european conquest of north america, complete with frontier towns and prejudice among the colonists, and the natural state of the natives. There are deeper themes, such as love and betrayal, sin and redemption, the clash of civilizations, and the course and consequences of a man's actions, tempered by woman's molding. I rate this a 4-1/2 and not a 5 because of one small sequence I thought could be better, but why spoil it - you might like that sequence.

The fun thing about this book was the way you got to go directly from a high-fantasy world into the Old West, but fantasy style. The high-fantasy world is full of all the melodrama of medieval politics (especially sexual politics), and the shift from that to the Old West-world of, well, rape, murder, and swindling the folks Back Home is like jumping into a cold pool on a hot day. Yeah, those elves are lying, cheating SOBs, but at least they're relatively honest.

A clever variation for the Weird West subgenre (which I love). Good characters, fast action, and lots of bloody revenge.

I'm pretty new to the fantasy genre, but I felt quite at home with this book. As an avid reader of historical fiction, I can say that Healy pulls off an enormously difficult task of giving such a fantastical world (complete with dwarves and elves) a heavy dose of realism. Not only is the world building in this book stellar, but the elements of several dramas are brought to bear here. Early on, I was drawn in by enough scandal and court intrigue to make Henry VIII blush. Later, it was the "anything goes" lawless frontier life that held me. There's enough here for fans of several genres to take note and I'm surprised that this hasn't been received with more fanfare.

Delicate elves of JR Tolkien. ...I think not. This is middle earth meeting Louis L'Amour. A great story line and empathetic and believable characters. Great use of the mages as well. I am happy to have tried this new author to me and will read his other works.

Pariah's Moon gives you all the best things about epic fantasy (elves, magic, wizards bows and arrows) and deftly weaves them with classic western themes (an exiled lone hero seeks redemption among an indigenous people in a faraway land). Fill it all in with Healy's excellent pacing and his gift for action-based writing, and you'll a tight, thrilling tale with a lot of heart.
