Cindy Penn"Alex Roces creates a remarkable literary work rich in mythos and spirituality in "The Moon Child." Like Michiavelli's "The Prince," "The Moon Child" becomes a treatise on the truth about power, revealing the difference between perceptions of one who holds power, and the truth of their nature. Like "The Celestine Prophesy," however, Roces also inspires improvement, growth, and honesty, in addition to examining the nature of truth and love. Specifically, Maria is misunderstood and underestimated. With a sincere heart full of love, she stands misjudged by the very people who need her most because they fear her power.
With these complex layers concealed beneath the deceptively simplistic narrative, "The Moon Child" reads like a fairy tale. Yet tales within the tale reveal observations and teachings rich in meaning, as Roces brings a rich understanding of psychology and metaphysics to the narrative. As a result, "The Moon Child" achieves a complexity that will hold its readers mesmerized. With an enthralling voice as lovely as the music that holds Juanito's listeners entranced, "The Moon Child" comes very highly recommended."
