(Review from the author)

I hope you all enjoy my new book as much as my beta readers did! Here are a few of their quotes after reading The Moon Dwellers:

-“I’m excited for the next book and this one isn’t even out yet!” -Alexandria

-“HOLY CRAP! I literally JUST finished and I’m kind of on that crazy after-you-finish-an-epic-book high!” –Kerri

-“OH MY GOD!!! What a lovely story David! I am in LOVE with it!” –Nicole

-“Awesome job. Can’t wait till the book is going to come out. Let me know when so I can demand all my friends to read it.” –Kay

-“I was heartbroken and cried my eyes out, but that’s one of the things I love. If an author can make me feel that much emotion through their characters then in my book that makes them so much better.” –Kay again

-“The action was absolutely amazing, and it kept me on my toes the entire time! Overall it was kinda sorta FREAKING AWESOME!” –Kerri again

-“I love this book! I am already dying to know what happens next!” –Christina

-“Wonderful story!” –Laurie

Quotes David Liked

David Estes
“My dad used to say the definition of stupidity was doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Or maybe that was the definition of crazy.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“I don't particularly like confrontation. Unfortunately, confrontation seems to like me quite a lot.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“It's like she was metal and I was a magnet, Roc. But at the same time it felt like someone had shoved an electric wire into my skin and was frying me from the inside. It hurt like hell. No, worse than hell, Roc. And yet, somehow across the distance, through the fence, over the mob of people, I felt a pull to her, even though I knew it would hurt me to be closer to her. I probably would have just let it go, chalked it up to male hormones, but then when she acted so strong, pushed that guy... I don't know, since then I can't get her out of my mind.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“It's like my mind knows to stay as far away from him as possible... but my bones, my skin quiver in his presence.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“My brain is telling me to stop staring at him, but for some reason I can't. It's almost... instinct... to keep on looking at him.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“The beauty of physical pain is that it wipes out the other forms of pain.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“I haven't done anything, except be born.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“You'll learn far more by listening than you ever will by speaking.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“Sometimes it's best to hide in plain sight.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“Sometimes, girls, you have to hit your lowest low just before you hit your highest high. It makes you appreciate the good things so much more.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“No beast of reality, or creature of imagination, is as terrible as mankind. Or as loving. It’s a contradiction. I’ve always liked contradictions. Today I see both sides of the coin unveiled in gruesome and beautiful imagery, captured by my eyes and filed away in my mind, like still shots taken by a world-renowned photographer.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“There are some things more important than your own life. Like friendship, and love, and trust, and goodness.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

David Estes
“He throws his hands up in a request for mercy, I'm not in the mood so I stab him in the heart.”
David Estes, The Moon Dwellers
