I’m excited to be reviewing Moon Deeds by Palmer Pickering today! Let me know if you’ve read this or if this sounds like something you would read. I’d love to discuss with you in the comments!
Special thanks to Palmer Pickering for the copy of Moon Deeds in exchange for a review!
It’s 2090: the last outpost of freedom is the moon, the best defense against technology is magic, and the only hope for humankind rests in the hands of the Star Children.
Twins Cassidy and Torr must save Earth from a ruthless enemy at a time when the only force more powerful than alien technology is magic. Moon Deeds launches the siblings’ journey across the galaxy, where they must learn their power as the Star Children, claim their shamanic heritage, and battle dark forces that threaten humankind.
The Star Children Saga follows Cassidy and Torr as they slowly awaken to their destiny as the twin Star Children, born every millennium to reconnect with the source of all life. They come to discover the sheer enormity of their task: to find our ancestors on a lost planet across the galaxy and save humanity from a spiraling descent into darkness. The powers they must wield to accomplish this task are truly frightening and put at risk everything they love.
Come along with twenty-year-old twins Cassidy and Torr, who inherited deeds to land parcels on the moon. They want to use their moon deeds to get off Earth and escape a brutal dictatorship. But first they must unlock their shaman powers.
A rollicking yet poignant adventure in the not too distant future, when we have colonized the moon and nearly lost Earth to a dictatorship. Only the shamans remain free, plus the lucky ones who escaped to the moon.
Join the adventure! An addictive space opera, science-fantasy series.
Moon Deeds is a compelling, complex novel. I absolutely loved the alien-tech versus magic battle. It was such a unique concept that kept me invested through the entire novel. I’m not sure I’ve read a concept quite like it and I enjoyed Palmer Pickering’s creativity.
The book is long, almost 600 pages, and there are moments when I think the pace dragged. I liked the attention to detail, but I think the novel would have benefited with a little less. However, the plot makes up for this and I’m still super impressed with the storyline!
The characters are fantastic. There are many who feel real and I found myself really invested in their story. I absolutely love Cassidy’s determination and open personality. She was such an enjoyable character.
Overall, I love Moon Deeds. It’s a great start to what is looking like a fantastic series and I’m excited to keep reading!
