The Crescent Stone
A girl with a deadly lung disease . . .
A boy with a tragic past . . .
A land where the sun never sets but darkness still creeps in . . .
A bargain that brings life, but may cost more than anyone can imagine . . .
Madeline Oliver has never wanted for anything, but now she would give anything just to breathe. Jason Wu skates through life on jokes, but when a tragedy leaves him guilt-stricken, he promises to tell only the truth, no matter the price. When a mysterious stranger name Hanali appears to Madeline and offers to heal her in exchange for one year of service to his people, Madeline and Jason are swept into a strange land where they don’t know the rules and where their decisions carry consequences that reach farther than they could ever guess.
My thoughts: This is the first book that I have read by Mikalatos, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The characters are well written and come to live with their wit and struggles. I felt the pain that drove both characters to embark on their adventures. I felt like the underlying messages were encouraging and thought provoking, leaving the reader to think on the story after the final page is read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series! I only wish it were already out, so I could continue the story.
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
