Dark and moody, I read this book in one sitting. Because I had to know what happened. And because I wanted to see how Heather put words together. I loved the writing as much as the vibrant and dark story that unfolded.

This book is 100% about character development, and I loved the imperfect characters being perfectly themselves - then learning to be themselves beyond their perceptions of perfection.

David James, The Warrior's Code

“Sometimes being brave just means falling in love.”
David James, Light of the Moon

“And being brave doesn’t always mean you need to fight to win your battles; there are different kinds of strengths. Sometimes bravery comes from letting your heart make choices your mind cannot.”
David James, Light of the Moon

“There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.”
Joseph Conrad

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist

“You love me. Real or not real?"
I tell him, "Real.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

“Truth doesn’t set you free, it shifts your world into something else entirely until you’re back to this: Who am I now that I know who I should be?”
David James, Light of the Moon
