In his debut novel, Shawn weaves a fantastic tale that moves from the beautifully described world of the Elves, to the gritty streets of modern Los Angeles.
In this story, a powerful Elf has gone rogue and is bent on revenge. Dré Fao'Lain is gifted in the ways of Dark Magic, and his plot for revenge takes him to the Human realm where his plan begins to unfold. Many humans are being murdered as part of a ritual that will lead to the destruction of the Elven race.
Kalen Or'Wain, Captain of the Elven Royal Guard, is sent to the Human realm to stop him. Working with a human Special Agent who is aware of the Elven threat, the pair begin the daunting task of finding, then stopping the powerful Fao'Lain. Along the way, the pair encounters an LAPD detective, Amy Sommers, who is also tracking the Elven Killer.
Oetzel does a marvelous job of keeping the suspense heightened, while bringing to life the colorful characters who keep the story moving. The battle scenes are vividly described, and the main characters form a close bond while trying to stop the dreadful threat. Fast-paced and full of action, Oetzel has blended the genres of Crime and Fantasy into a wonderful story sure to please fans of either one. I highly recommend "Dying Moon," and look forward to Shawn Oetzel's next novel.

In the novel, an Elf called Dre Fao'lain is intent on the destruction of all his kind and enters into the world of 21st century Los Angeles to perform the magical ceremony necessary to accomplish his mission. Leaving a series of bodies in his wake, the Elf is pursued by the LAPD. In the meantime the Elves send Kalen Or'Wain, Captain of the Elven Royal Guard, to stop him. He teams up with a special agent who knows about the Elven world, an officer from the LAPD and even a street gang to stop Dre Fao'lain. I really enjoyed the way Shawn Oetzel merged two seemingly disparate genres in this novel.
Kalen Or'Wain, Captain of the Elven Royal Guard, is prepared to die for his people, but the unexpected assignment--which sends him to the terrifying world of the humans--shakes him to the core. Compelled by duty and scarred by his own personal history, Kalen confronts this unusual world--the people and his mission head-on--instantly experiencing emotional overdrive. He has stepped into a pale comparison of the beauty that he is familiar with and feels ill equipped to move forward without his human counterparts. While Kalen and his motley crew organize, their prey is moving quickly forward with single-minded determination to complete a ritual that will destroy the Elven race.
Oetzel--gifted with the talent of painting a literary image in your mind--offers readers the unique opportunity to re-experience the small things, often taken for granted, as he entertains with sudden bits of humor while racing towards the climactic ending.
