Blog Tour: “Moonscript” by H.S.J Williams


“It is said that Darkness is empty and whatever vanishes into its depths is lost forever. I know this better than anyone. For I have suffered here in the shadows, and there are none who might find me.”

Seventy years. Seventy years the elven prince has been lost to the darkness, assumed dead by his people and endlessly broken for a book that connects to the hidden realm of his ancestors, a land untouched by evil.

And now a light in the shadows. A chance for freedom. But those willing to help him come from the unlikeliest of worlds.

The orphan girl, yearning for a loving family, and the boy who won’t leave her side. A healer maiden given an unexpected chance for a life beyond narrowed expectations. A grieving creature flown far from home.

They all search for something and now their fates are tied to his. If their quest for life can pull him from the dark mire in which his soul drowns, then perhaps he can be saved.

Or else he will drag them all down to a fate worse than death.

The beginning of an epic saga, MOONSCRIPT is a journey of innocence, despair, and redemption.

Seven illustrations by the author exclusively included in the paperback edition!

From the beginning, H. S. J. Williams has loved stories and all the forms they take. Whether with word, art, or costume, she has always been fascinated with the magic of imagination. She lives in a real fantastical kingdom, the beautiful Pacific Northwest, with her very own array of animal friends and royally loving family. Williams taught Fantasy Illustration at MSOA. She may also be a part-time elf.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

An intense battle of good versus evil and light versus dark has been raging for a long time. A tortured elven prince who the world thinks to be dead, a little girl who simply wants a family, a boy who calls himself her best friend, a woman who is more mother than monster, and a creature whose kind is long gone. When the world is threatened by the Darkness, these characters are all that stand between it and the Moonscript. A journey begins, and more characters are introduced along the way. Who will stand victorious in the end–good or evil?

At first, I had a hard time getting into the story. However, it suddenly changed. Once I got into the story, I found myself completely entranced by it. It has a similar feeling to the Lord of the Rings series in some ways. The characters were such a ragtag bunch and I loved them all the more because of it. I often found myself laughing out loud at their interactions. The author has truly done a magnificent job. She created a vast and complex world, with perfectly imperfect characters, and a tale of adventure that continually left me wondering what would happen next. I wasn’t expecting that I would even be shipping people as much as I was! Plus, the book was completely clean and wholesome, something that is lacking these days. While the story was a tale of adventure, love, hardship, and endurance, it also contained so much wisdom and truth within its pages. I was left awestruck at how this simple story turned into something so much more for me and probably several other readers as well. When I finally reached the end, I was devastated to see that it was over. I hope to read the rest of the series when they become available! Please do yourself a favor and read this book!
