This novel reminds me of Evangeline Walton's Prince of Anwnn, the first book of the Mabinogion tetralogy. A Lament of Moonlight has the same sense of faerie intersecting with the "real" world, and creates a similar mood of the magical lurking behind the mundane--if only we choose to see it.
The only negatives I can see with this book are a few grammar/spelling errors, but not so many that it really detracts from the story. Further, Simmons so successfully creates a magical feel to his world that the adventure, once completed, seems more like something achieved in a dream.
As the 3rd book in the "Harbingers of Light" series, "A Lament of Moonlight" serves mainly to move the story from one book to the next, rather than present a tale of its own. It does so in fine fashion, as author Travis Simmons once again provides solid character development and several dynamic action scenes.
The setting, once again, is the Fey Forest, which our heroes are traveling through in hopes of reaching the Harbinger of Light settlement, where Abigail can learn to control the Wyrd magic brought on by the shadow plague. The stakes are raised when the group finds itself on the wrong path, meaning that instead of exiting the forest near the elven city and harbinger refuge, they must travel considerably further both in the forest, and from the forest exit to the city .
I'm really enjoying this series. The books are not overlong which helps them maintain a brisk pace - but they're not so short that story details get left by the wayside. The mythology Simmons is unveiling as the story builds, while based on the Norse mythology, deviates in various ways, so that even if you've read a ton of Norse-based stories, there are plenty of surprises amongst the familiar.
This is the third book in the Harbringer of Light series. I really enjoyed reading this because it continues the story so well. I recommend this book.
