Why read it?
1 author picked The Moon Hunters as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
The Moon Hunters is a masterpiece of dystopian literature. Told through flashbacks, journal entries, and a nautical rescue, we follow Leilani through post-apocalyptic, post-plague island life in a society with inhumane laws and toxic religious conditioning. There’s forbidden romance, ruthless royalty, thrilling action, and jaw-dropping prose. Leilani is strong and willful, and society punishes her for her strength. With universal themes of love, loss, revolution, and retribution, Pavelle hooked me from the start and possessed me till the end. I adored the characters, the world enchanted me, and the prose bewitched me. It’s truly a dystopian jewel.
