About this ebook

"They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars. That was a long time ago..."The Moth Saga, a bestselling fantasy series, tells the story of Moth, a world torn in two--its one half always in sunlight, the other cloaked in endless night. This bundle includes the first three novels in the series: MothEmpires of Moth, and Secrets of Moth.

Many eras ago, the world of Moth fell still, leaving one side in perpetual daylight, the other in darkness. Torin and Bailey have spent their lives in the light, but now they're about to venture into the dark . . . and discover a world of danger, secrets, and wonder.

Poor story overall. I've purchased the books 1-3 out of curiosity, and I was severely dissapointed. I had to suffer through the books and all I have to say is: don't bother. In short: a nearly immortal small spider/monkey hybrid creature thought it was a good idea to stop the world from turning, by sabbotaging a clock built inside a mountain, to force humanity to stay peaceful. Many, many, many years later, a cult with no doctrine takes root that blames "night demons" (people that evolved on the world's night side) for everything bad that happens each day. War breaks out between night side and day side, people die, night people are brought on the brink of extinction only for the slaughter to stop after a "heartfelt" speech from the main character that made the world turn again. If you are a fan of senseless violence, poorly written army clashes, bland and uninteresting characters, poorly thought out plot, even poorer world setting; then this series is for you.

This is NOT fantasy writing at its finest. At times I struggled for the motivation to read another chapter. Characters lack realism, and the female characters lack all plausibility, seemingly made as irritating as possible. Many things haven't been thought-through sufficiently, such as the rising and setting of the moon, or the passage of the stars on a per-turn cycle, on a world which supposedly does not spin. As a final irritant, enough to make many readers close these books and read something else: The proofreading errors. There are an awful lot of them! Daniel, I kept correction notes while reading the trilogy, so please contact me to implement them, so you can publish a corrected edition.

I've never given a negative review of a book before and I don't feel good about starting now but I didn't enjoy these books. It's partly that I think I'm too old for them (YA fantasy) and partly that the writing is... uninspired. Tropes upon tropes and cliche after cliche. The author seems to be writing for children but it has enough gore in it that it would be better suited for young adults. However, the quality of the writing just isn't there. A very simple read ...and yet I don't think I could bring myself to recommend it to anyone. If you're looking for great fantasy for any age, try Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson.
