"Kameron Williams has written a novel about the world before the moon shone in the night sky. We experience Omi's curiosity, love, hunger, and intensity first hand, and we yearn to find out if he and the others will find what they seek: freedom from rules and traditions that have no real worth. The Time Before The Moon comes highly recommended." Readers' Favorite

Yes, you can see a few prevailing moments such as when Omi’s friends are like hey, stop questioning everything. However, it sets up for a lot of internal development. Unlike other popular sagas or trilogies, Omi doesn’t have a huge end game that is his only driving force. He grows substantially, and each mini-hurdle he has, you can see that it’s slowly building together towards the larger picture. Rather than “I must do x to accomplish y.”
The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘In the ancient world, when the days were short and the nights were long and moonless, one boy questions the customs of his village—a thing others would never dare to do. He is Omi, and he knows something isn’t right about the place he calls home. Soon his curiosity puts him in danger, and what he learns changes everything. He flees the village, pursued by the wicked hierarchy he’s challenged, its leader desperate to maintain control. Lives are lost, homes are destroyed, and Omi vows to bring justice to the culprits. But to have his revenge, he must first survive the wild.’
Now, if that’s not enough to grab your attention, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.
The contrast between tone and content is a characteristic talent of only a few authors. Williams pays as much attention to his sentences as he does to his plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. His writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that helps to create an atmosphere that will leave you wanting more.
I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class fantasy with perfect pacing.
The Time Before The Moon had every element a good story should have. An interesting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I look for in a good book. It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.
I’ll be looking forward to reading more from Kameron Williams in the future. I would highly recommend this book. A well-deserved five stars from me.
The deception that played out was a complete surprise. We always tend to want everything to work out, but sometimes it leaves us for other opportunities. The fight scenes were very vivid and you could almost smell the blood and smoke. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has the slightest interest in mythology. It is well written, edge of seat, page turning and heartbreaking all at once.

This is a well told story, which I enjoyed reading. It had many twists which I didn’t see coming, meaning I was never sure how things were going to turn out. This is exactly how I like a book to be - unpredictable. Having said that, though, some of the unexpected turns did annoy me.
For some reason the book felt, to me, kind of abridged. The story trots along at a good pace and I think perhaps there could have been more variation in that pace, to give time for relationships and characters to grow. It felt like an epic novel that had had the slower passages taken out, leaving just the story.
It was a very good story though, and I did enjoy it.
The Time before the Moon was a fun read, right from the first page. Kameron is a great writer, with a curious way with words. I think, besides his use of language, my favourite thing about the book is the pacing. Everything is described well, never rushed. As a result, everything feels more real.
When the world feels real, and the characters are as strong as they are here, a book is a joy to read. This is no exception.
