The Stolen Moon of Londor (The White Shadow Saga #1)

My biggest problem was the characters. I didn't bond with any, and I think the problem with this is there were just too many characters Stephen tried to portray therefore no one got any depth. It wasn't that bad but every character acted the same all the way through the book one one had any layers :(
I would read the second book to see where Stephens takes this ...more
An excellent story that gets better with every chapter.
The land of Londor has much potential for other tales, and im sure they will be just as great.
Rated 5 star and fully deserved!!
I also really enjoyed the creative world of Londor itself. Londor is a huge world inhabited by dwarfs, wizards, e ...more
The Stolen Moon of Londor, A. P.

Somewhat similar to the n ...more
Did I like it .... Kind of!

Why not? I am not sure if I didn't.
This story was definitely written in an off beat writing style. And there is nothing wrong with that. You just have to get used to it.
Aaron Stephens' writing style is - to say the least - old ...more
This story could do with some further development of the characters and perhaps some more introduction to each of the characters individually so we can better distinguish them apart.
It didn't detract from the story too much, though, ...more
A.P. Stephens has crafted a highly enjoyable fantasy tale of men, elves, dwarves, wizards, mercenaries and various other types of characters. His story telling style is excitingly different from most other fantasy authors. It comes across as a fireside tale which draws the reader in and holds your attention throughout each action filled chapter.
This up and coming author has done extremely well with his freshman offering. This is book 1 of 3 and I for one cannot wait to see book two. I highly e...more
If you like travel quests with original ideas and manageable length you should give The Stolen Moon of Londor a try.

The stolen moon is still a good idea, though, and I'll read the second to find out who did it.
