I am so glad that I was introduced to the "Urban Fantasy" genre by the gifted author, Shawn Oetzel.
In his debut novel, Shawn weaves a fantastic tale that moves from the beautifully described world of the Elves, to the gritty streets of modern Los Angeles.
In this story, a powerful Elf has gone rogue and is bent on revenge. Dré Fao'Lain is gifted in the ways of Dark Magic, and his plot for revenge takes him to the Human realm where his plan begins to unfold. Many humans are being murdered as par

Taking the best of elvin fantasy and modern day detective novels, Shawn Oetzel makes Dying Moon a fast paced trip through the streets of Los Angeles. I found myself swept into the story immediately, and urging the stories hero, Kalen Or’Wain, and its heroine, Amy Sommers, to win over Kalen’s evil nemesis, Dre’ Fao’lain. Reaching the end of this high impact novel, I found myself wanting more, and I cannot wait for Shawn’s next novel to come out.

I really enjoyed this one, I loved all of the characters especially the villan. I was actually kind of rooting for him, I would have liked to see more in the elven world, I'm hoping there will be a sequel that will take place there. I also loved the way the book ended. This book is definitly worth checking out.

If urban fantasy is your thing, than this is a book worth checking out. In a crowded genre, Shawn Oetzel most certainly gives us something all his own.

Shawn Oetzel, author of the new speculative fiction novel, Dying Moon was born and raised in Central Illinois where he still lives with his wife, three kids, and their frustratingly lovable pet pooch, Hemingway.

Shawn learned to read at an early age. While his peers were still seeing Dick, Jane, and Spot run, Shawn was devouring bestsellers and adult fiction at an alarming rate. This of course led
