"As Deston gradually discovers this new world andwho he truly is, I felt like I was on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure withhim, which made it difficult for me to put the book down. It was full ofexciting and equally intense moments, some heart-warming scenes, and plenty ofenjoyable parts for fantasy/magic fans. Before the Full Moon Rises is amust-read and M.J. Bell is a very talented writer and storyteller. I can't waitto read the next book in the series." Readers' Favorite "Beautifully done! Not only is the story realistic (by mystandards, at least), the writing is absolutely magical. From the very firstpage you are transported into this world and you feel like you're standingright there with Deston. You are right there in the story from the very firstpage all the way to the end.
