Praise for Moonblood:

“Fans of dystopian fiction looking for something refreshingly original and truly different in the society-building/destruction theme will find Moonblood a standout….”
–D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“In a dystopian future mired in traditions whose origins have been lost, can one woman’s search for truth bring answers for her and for all of humanity? … Moonblood is an imaginative story with complex characters set in a future landscape that is all too easy to extrapolate from today’s world. It pulls you and will not let go.”
–Al Gritten, Goodreads review
