The Cloud Roads - Wells, Martha
The Cloud Roads is the first novel in the Books of the Raksura series. It's a stand-alone tale with no frustrating cliff hangers. I gladly paid $1.99 for this book. I look forward to reading more in the series. Moon is an orphan. He doesn't know what he is, except that he's a shape shifter. Moon looks normal for a groundling in one phase, or as normal as anyone in the Three Worlds, but Moon can fly in his other phase, and he has to hide that shape in order to fit in. He'll be killed if he's mistaken for a Fell. Moon is rescued by another shape shifter and discovers he's a Raksura. Can Moon fit in with his true people, and can he save his new colony from destruction by the Fell? An amazing story with a myriad of characters on a world full of surprises. Absolutely recommended.
