5/5 stars ~
Have my emotions finished exploding? No. But I’m going to review this book anyway.
I WILL FANGIRL ABOUT THIS BOOK UNTIL THE DAY I DIE AND NO ONE WILL EVER STOP ME. MMMWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
I’m sorry. That was weird. You can trust one thing. This will be an exuberant, fangirl, full-of-screaming-how-much-I-love-it type of review.
H. S. J. Williams is a master. A master of story weaving. This book hurts. But it also heals.
Everything is so unbelievably realistic and yet SO FANTASY. Gah. The plot, the characters, the action, the dialogue. The whole story comes to life in a vivid tale of beauty that it’s literally like watching a movie (this needs a to be a movie. I will pay for this to be a movie). And personally …. these characters are encouraging. These people are uplifting. This story of sacrifice and love is beyond my ability of expressing how good it is.
I cried. Multiple times. I laughed so hard it hurt my stomach. I smiled so long my face muscles complained. But most importantly I wailed around the house screaming how good it was and my family laughed at me. When a book brings me to this stage …. my family understands it’s a treasure. You must understand this as well. THIS BOOK IS EPIC AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT.
Description – dreamy sigh Didn’t I say it was like watching a movie?? IT’S SERIOUSLY REMINDED ME OF LOTR SO. MANY. TIMES. And yet Moonscript is perfectly unique. The vivid scenery and action scenes.
Plot – Never EVER boring. (Imma go recommend this book to everyone …. give me a sec) It was so perfectly intense and yet relaxed throughout!! We had a mix of scenes that got the story where it needed to go. The pacing was absolutely marvelous. AND FINALLY. FINALLY I GOT THE ENDING I’VE ALWAYS BEEN DREAMING OF. A BOOK THAT GAVE LIKE SEVEN CHAPTERS OF HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER. dies from the overload of joy And they were such beautiful chapters. cries
Setting – We travel through multiple different kingdoms and cities (all of which I have yet to memorize how to spell …. I know … I know … ridiculous considering how much I love this book) AND THE FORESTS. ALSO THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM. 😍 AND THE UNSEEN WORLD. GAHHHHHHHHHHH. Everything …. everywhere is just so clear. And then of course. The Dark castle. coughs Which was just as perfectly imaginable …. but not as beautiful.
Romance – Well … there are some romantic elements … but it’s not like … pushy? I liked it. It was cute. I also liked how it didn’t take over the story. WE FINALLY JUST HAVE A STORY ABOUT FRIENDS. AND HOW THESE FRIENDS LOVE EACH OTHER BUT NOT IN that WAY.
Content – Fantasy violence. Spiritual Realm. . . . demons and angles. Fantasy cuss words? Idk … they were kinda amusing. One kiss … mentioned in passing. Some very slight suggestive references. VERY. CLEAN. YA BOOK!!! 😍😍😍
Characters – OMW. I COULD GO ON AND ON AND ON FOREVER. cries cuz I love them so much and they aren’t real They are soooooo realistic. They have faults. They fail. They get back up again. They heal and move on. ALSO THEY’RE SO DEEP AND REAL. GAH. It’s like you never stop learning about them and what makes them, them. (I’m sorry … I’m a writer … I should do better at this … you’d think anyway. BUT I’M IN FANGIRL MOOD) These. People. They say so much in their actions even when they don’t say anything at all! And they made me feel things so deeply. H. S. J. Williams puts them all in a position where they get one-on-one time with each other. It’s super cool to see what they talk about and how they react when separate members of the party aren’t there. 😂😂😂
Errance – The poor boy WHO IS MY CHILD AND I WILL PROTECT HIM FOREVERRRRRRRR. i have stolen him from his original mother coughs HE’S SUCH A CINNAMON ROLL AND HE HURTS SO MUCH IT KILLS ME. I yelled at him so many times. Cried for him so many times. LAUGHED at him so many times. He’s protective and afraid. Strong yet weak. Determined and what the world …. THE PAINFUL WORDS HE SAYS SOMETIMES JUST KILLS ME.
Tellie – I relate to her so much it’s not funny. She just wants to help and heal others. Just wants a family. 💖 She just loves. An innocent, never ending love. She’s also such a scheming sister AND I LOVE HER SO MUCH. (I AGREE TELLIE!!! TRYSS IS BEAUTIFUL AND ERRANCE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO HER. 😂😂😂😂 💔)
Kelm – The optimist. The perfectly humorous jester of the group and yet not. He loves carving things and is ever so loyal. 💖 ALSO. WHEN HE GETS REALLY SERIOUS ITS SO FUNNY. WHY IS IT SO DEAD FUNNY??? Kelm will literally say everything is peachy–AND MEAN IT–when they’re in the dungeon of despair.
Tryss – The warrior …. guardian … scout …. healer … tree climber … and motherly protector of the group. She just is SO GREAT. She’s open and yet guarded. Playful and serious. Deadly and comforting. She sacrificed a lot for people she barely knew. She knows what love means and SHE’S ALWAYS SO MISUNDERSTOOD. cries for her YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO GET ANGRY TRYSS. I GIVE YOU THAT RIGHT. yet …. She hardly does get angry and I love her for it.
The Daisha – I HAVE NO WORDS. YOUR SERIOUSLY THE BEST. (I have a soft spot for flying creatures).
Overall – MY FANGIRLING LOVE FOR THIS AUTHOR AND ALL HER BOOKS WILL NEVER, EVER DIE. I SHALL RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERY FANTASY GEEK I MEET. And all those who aren’t. wicked laugh
FTC DISCLOSURE I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I am not affiliated with the author in any way (or I wasn’t before I read this book). My review is my opinion, so if something I said was offensive please don’t take it personally. Thanks! 🙂
“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

A couple lovely people endorsed Moonscript. Here’s what they had to say . . . .
Doesn’t it sound absolutely amazing yet?? Can you tell a lot of amazing fantasy authors and fantasy readers are geeking out over it?? Doesn’t that tell you how glorious it is?! It’s perfection.
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.
