I bought this based on the rave reviews I read here on Amazon. And I have to admit, initially I was disappointed. The two main characters indulge in long, meandering internal conversations, a lot of which is completely irrelevant. Even when they're talking to somebody, each sentence in the conversation is interrupted with a lengthy thought process - honestly, they would be incredibly annoying to talk to! You'd say something and then have to wait in silence for five minutes while they analysed everything you said before replying. Adele even acknowledges this in the middle of a discussion.

"I still haven't answered Cole's question. I'm not sure how long it has been since he asked it, but probably a while, because he is looking at me strangely, like I have poo on my face or something. While I've been battling with myself in the comfort of my own head, I can only guess at what weird facial expressions I was making."

Adele has much-touted 'trust issues' which don't seem to stop her from immediately trusting the first two people she meets in the book. One day, she's a self-professed loner, then literally less than forty eight hours later she's part of a group who divulge their deepest secrets, risk their lives for each other and have a connection like they've been BFFs for years. It seems weird.

The two main characters are also a bit unbelievable and stereotypical. A poor, wronged heroine, stunningly beautiful of course despite her trauma, with mad fighting skills, risking life and limb to save her family. The handsome hero with tousled blonde hair, rich and coveted by women all over the planet, with daddy issues that make him want to get out and slum it with the 'normal' people. He even has a goofy sidekick.

Originally published in Night Owl Reads

I would like to thank David Estes for giving me a copy of this book. However, this fact does not affect my thoughts about this novel.

The Moon Dwellers was something I was excited for. And to make sure it's something I would like, I read the prelude of the story, which David shared in his blog, and the preview (first chapter) he offered in Smashwords. It didn't make sense at first, of course, but I got more excited because the first chapter was intriguing and the writing style is clean.

Two main things make up this novel, a brewing war and the romance. If you're not a big fan of insta-love, I suggest you put that dislike aside and give this book a try. It's unique and different in a way, it gives a new meaning to love-at-first-sight and leaves the romance time to develop. You'll see.

Like any other dystopian story, there is a bigger task at hand other than the romance and I like that the female protagonist's focus is on that task rather than just gushing over a guy, although there were parts that she does that, she still sets her feelings aside for the greater good.

Each chapter is written in alternating first-person POVs of Tristan and Adele. The whole story is one big adventure for both parties (Tristan and Roc; Adele, Tawni, and Cole). And each party gets caught in a situation that seems inescapable but would eventually get through it by sheer luck and coincidence. I was literally hanging on at the edge of my seat every time each party gets in danger.

I love all the main characters and their relationships! Tristan and Roc's friendship is one of my favorites. The bromance is overwhelming that I even made comments about them being the real couple in the story.

Wow, what an amazing journey into a completely unique world. This Dystopian/Urban Fantasy Novel stole my breath. Journey under the earth's crust after post apocalypse into the tri-realms for an emotional adventure ready to sweep you into it.

Adele is a 17 year old girl sentenced to life in prison because her father dared to question their unfair existence. For six months she has held her own in the juvenile detention center while waiting for her 18th birthday only to be transferred to a maximum security prison. She is a moon dweller, in this dystopian novel a moon dweller is the middle class but don't let that fool you most of their neighborhoods are slums.

Tristan is a Sun dweller, Prince of the Tri-realms, first born son to the President. Sun dwellers have been taking advantage of the moon dwellers and even lower class Star dwellers for 500 years. However Tristan is unique and feels his father's tactics are unethical and disgusting.

One day while fulfilling his princely duty he is in a parade that passes Adele in the yard on the detention center, their eyes meet and Adele feels an instant connection to him. That had to be her imagination right?
Follow Adele and her band of rag tag friends in their mission to escape prison and rescue her father from the work camp he has been sent to. At the same time fate leads Tristan away from his Palace in his journey to escape his existence as the "Prince" of the realm.

Will they meet? Do they feel the same connection?

This was a fabulous work of art appropriate for all ages. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of this sweet and fantastical world from the amazingly creative David Estes.
