The Sun and Moon beneath the Stars by K. Parr


Magic, possession by fallen Gods, Gods battling to get back their glory, strange creatures and two teenaged girls trying to save their families. This is an action-packed teen/YA fantasy.

Rasha, a fifteen-year old, sold into slavery to the royal house at the age of seven has had about enough of living. But her attempt to end it all is thwarted because she is possessed by the moon goddess. Instead of dying, she finds reason to live – her twin brother, who she thought was dead is, in fact, alive, and possessed by the sun god. So she makes it her mission to free him. Adriana, the princess of the royal house, who was to be named heir the next day, when she turned sixteen, finds her world demolished by an attack in which her parents are taken prisoners. Her singe reason for being is now to free them. The two girls form an unlikely partnership as they both need to get to the same place to free their loved ones. On the way they pick up a ragtag team to help them on. They also develop an unexpected attraction towards each other.

This book is more about the mission than the romance. But the romance is just so, so sweet. Both the girls are truly likeable and written to have strength and integrity. Our single problem with the book is that we do not like tragedy to befall people we like and sadly, Adriana (our favourite character) has to face tragedy with her parents in the end. We are rather uncomfortable with that bit in this otherwise entertaining book.
