Moonlight by David Rose (short story)


MoonlightFive stars!

Moonlight was definitely penned for those drawn to romance and tragedy. The setting is most apt for this purpose; the tale takes place in a land of deities and spirits, where tragedy has struck innumerous times before.

There are elements to this short story that held me to it, most notably the destructive effect that professional nomadism has over the families that are victim to it, tearing children from their newfound friends over and over until they become disinclined to forming bonds ever again. Anyone who has lived through this will understand what I mean.

From the technical perspective, Moonlight was very well written; the narrative flowed smoothly and without flaw, and left me with an experience which, although short, was certainly memorable.

In all, this is the kind of book that, if wrapped up neatly along with other short stories of the same genre, will always be among the most outstanding of the selection.
