#1 New York Times bestselling author P.C. Cast brings us Moon Chosen, a new epic fantasy set in a world where humans, their animal allies, and the earth itself has been drastically changed. A world filled with beauty and danger and cruelty…

Mari is an Earth Walker, heir to the unique healing powers of her Clan; but she has cast her duties aside, until she is chosen by a special animal ally, altering her destiny forever. When a deadly attack tears her world apart, Mari reveals the strength of her powers and the forbidden secret of her dual nature as she embarks on a mission to save her people. It is not until Nik, the son of the leader from a rival, dominating clan strays across her path, that Mari experiences something she has never felt before…

Now, darkness is coming, and with it, a force, more terrible and destructive than the world has ever seen, leaving Mari to cast the shadows from the earth. By forming a tumultuous alliance with Nik, she must make herself ready. Ready to save her people. Ready to save herself and Nik. Ready to embrace her true destiny…and obliterate the forces that threaten to destroy them all.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 01, 2016 – In this sprawling epic fantasy, set in a postapocalyptic world where the destruction of civilization led to giant mutated insects and deadly fungal blights, several tribes compete for resources with little understanding of and empathy for their rivals. Mari, the product of a forbidden union between the Earth Walkers and the Companions, inherits the traits of both the ability to heal through the power of the moon, and the potential to bond with a specially bred dog. Always on the outskirts of the Earth Walker tribe, Mari is reluctant to embrace her destined role as Moon Woman, or healer. When a Companion attack scatters Mari's tribe, she has to accept unlikely allies from both sides of her heritage. Cast (the House of Night series) conjures up an intriguing world full of constant danger, but the rules are ill-defined: for instance, it's never fully explained why Earth Walker women suffer from depression if not healed regularly, while the men devolve into savage rapists. An obligatory romantic subplot and cliffhanger ending may leave readers unfulfilled, despite engaging characters and a fast-paced narrative. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

A world revolving arounf light & dark and a girl who is both

This story is creative, complex, choreographed to dance with the light of the Moon & the rays of the Sun. As you read a beautiful world of magic and wonder is created on the pages. It is so sad that so many readers could not read through the amazing construction of this world. Unlike them I absolutely could not put this story down (much to my husband’s dismay!). I was so captured by everything happening in the world, the characters, their canine companions, their beliefs, the rituals, everything just came alive for me! Even the ugly parts, I felt them and knowing they were part of the story, I accepted them because I know it will all come together the way that it is supposed to whether I like it or not. I cannot wait to read more of Mari & Nik’s story and the apocalyptic world that has me wondering if maybe the Sun was on to something…

Great first book

Just finished Moon Chosen! I can't wait for the next book. I'm hooked!

Worth it!

I was a bit weary at first because this was going to be something different from the House of Night series but as I read I couldn't help but to be hooked by this new novel! It's amazing. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. P.C Cast you have done it again!
