"An epic fantasy about a young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, who must unlock the powerful magic buried deep inside her. Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known. The acclaimed author of The Witch's Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale destined to become a modern classic"--… (mere)

It's a very well written book, the world building was wonderful and it was a easy read. ( )

This is more of a thank you to the author and her brilliant storytelling than a review. I had started reading this book, eons ago. Over these months, life threw immeasurable challenges at me.

My job was mentally draining, my father and grand mother fell sick, I was applying to colleges and there wasn’t an ounce of energy left in me to read.

And I am usually someone who DNFs and moves on to a new book if I’m unable to complete a book for whatever reason. But this book was different. I could not put it down even though I was only able to read a chapter every 4-5 days.

My copy of the book is worn out as I carried it everywhere I went. It filled me with hope and love and what a beautifully written novel!!

I am in love with the cover, the characters, the storytelling, the author and heck, I even love the villain. ( )

This book has been on my shelf for years and I finally opened it and couldn't put it a down. Reads like poetry and containswitchy, magical elementsin conjunction with lots of comedic, smart, and wise commentary about life's conundrums. I wanted to accidentally drink the moonlight too.

Most adorable to date.

Loved the bog creature Glerk as a character. But the story swept me away. I can easily see this as a reread in a short time. ( )

This book was a lovely, sad, and engrossing fairytale with memorable characters. The title is a little misleading since Luna doesn't drink the whole moon, but is given moonlight to drink by accident as a baby, which makes her very magical. It gave me the same lovely sadness as the best fairytales do and is similarly filled with mystery and magic and wonder. I thought it was set in an Asian or Asian-inspired country, since Luna's dress and Xan's name feel Asian to me, and because of the origami cranes on the cover. It's not; the setting is more like a typical fantasy setting with the woods, but the Bog is unique. The poems of the Bog and Bog Monster's origin were lovely and echoed the beginnings of Genesis and John. There are some classic fairytale elements, such as the witch, the dragon, the foundling(s), and the seven-league boots, but this book felt both familiar and new. It will stay with me for a long time.

Yes. There is a witch in the woods.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
There was a time when her feet fit neatly on the curve of the earth ... (p. 127-128)
"'Patience has no wing,'" Glerk recited as she walked. / Patience does not run / Nor blow, nor skitter, nor falter. / Patience is the swell of the ocean; / Patience is the sigh of the mountain; / Patience is the shirr of the Bog; / Patience is the chorus of stars, / Infinitely singing.'" (p. 135-136)
Xan closed her eyes and pressed her feet to the ground and felt the magic flow through her fragile bones. She felt herself become light and small and keen. Bright eyes, agile toes, a sharp, sharp mouth. She shook her wings, felt so deep within herself the need to fly she thought she might die of it, and with a high, sad cry of loneliness and missing Luna, she fluttered into the air and slid over the fringe of trees. (p. 226)
... Glerk, who felt that violence, while sometimes necessary, was uncouth and uncivilized. Reason, beauty, poetry, and excellent conversation were his preferred tools for settling disputes. Glerk's spirit, in its essence, was as serene as a bog - life-giving and life-sustaining. (p. 357)
Once upon a time, the Witch received a poem from the Beast of the Bog. Perhaps it was the poem that made the world. Perhaps it was the poem that will end it. Perhaps it is something else entirely. All I know is that the Witch keeps it safe in a locket under her cloak. She belongs to us, but one day her magic will fade and she will wander back into the Bog and we won't have a witch anymore. Only stories. Perhaps she will find the Beast. Or become the Beast. Or become the Bog. Or become a Poem. Or become the world. They are all the same thing, you know.
