Moonlight Walkers: Forbidden Lands is a work of fiction in the fantasy subgenre and is the first installment in the series. It is aimed at young readers and was penned by author Courtney Moore. The book follows young Moonlight Walker wolf Sakura as she pushes her family to let her run with the pack, only to be continually rebuffed. Everything changes when dragons invade and burn down the forest she lives in. Now forced into the world to rescue her family from the invaders, Sakura discovers much danger and uncertainty as the wolves begin their war against the dragons.
There are two aspects of a fantasy novel that make or break it; the strength of the author's lore for their fantasy world and the twists and turns in the narrative that constantly keep the whole work feeling fresh and dynamic. Fortunately for us, author Courtney Moore has a mastery of both aspects, the result being this gripping and exciting opening installment of what I hope will be a long series. Sakura is gorgeously realized with a natural development through the story that constantly keeps her both interesting and grounded in reality; she is the perfect protagonist for such a stunning journey through this world of danger. Moonlight Walkers: Forbidden Lands uses the world it has to play with to explore some big and important themes cleverly and engagingly. Overall, I found it to be an exemplary work of fantasy fiction and I have no hesitation in recommending this book to all readers.
