Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - KLIATT Review
Half-dragon, half-beaststalker Jennifer Scales has never shied away from controversy, but when she brings a full beaststalker, a human, and a werachnid named Skip to Crescent Valley--the secret grounds of the weredragons--she's pretty sure she's finally put her foot (claw?) into it. Old feuds run deep between the species, especially for elders such as Xavier Longtail, and many view her peacemaking attempts as treason. Little does she know, they're right. After unwittingly donning a protective charm from Skip, Jennifer wakes one morning to an alternate universe in which werachnids reign supreme and only she and Skip remember the "before" world. Gone are her parents, her home, and all the weredragons except for Xavier. Now, she must find a way to right the universe . . . and to realize that love does not always outweigh betrayal. The Silver Moon Elm involves the reader in a plot that is as complex and far-reaching as any adult-level fantasy novel, yet is so well planned that it never once strains credibility. Davidson and Alongi seamlessly blend teenage spats with dragons' dens for a novel that retains the vitality of its youthful characters without itself seeming "young." Readers of all ages will appreciate the inventiveness of this exceptional tale. Age Range: Ages 12 to adult. REVIEWER: Cara Chancellor (Vol. 42, No. 1)

Jennifer Scales had the shock of her life when she discovered that she wasn't truly human. She found out who she really was right when she began to morph, which was perfect timing for her parents to tell her how she is beaststalker and weredragon. To make matters even worse, both the halves that make up Jennifer are at odds with each other.

Jennifer wants all sides to have peace with one another, and her trip to Crescent Valley shows this. Bringing along a human, Susan, her best friend who she finally revealed her secret to, another weredragon, a beaststalker, her friend, Eddie, and a werachnid, her ex-boyfriend Skip, Jennifer really does hope that things will go peacefully.

If Eddie and Skip can survive their fight with one another and her parents can get along, then anything can happen.

There at Crescent Valley is Xavier Longtail, a respected dragon who didn't fully support Jennifer when she was being chosen as ambassador, only because he doesn't believe beaststalkers and weredragons can live among one another.

Before she knows it, Jennifer is slowly influenced by Xavier's words, but not for too long. Soon after, an epic battle erupts, and the weredragons biggest threat, the werarchnids, have a huge advantage over them. Saved by a necklace given to her by her ex, Skip, Jennifer is left with Xavier, her family gone. This means that they both need to find common ground to save the weredragons and to save Jennifer's friends and family.

Will the idea of peace be totally obliterated or can it still have a meaning?

A wonderful third installment to the already imaginative series, THE SILVER MOON ELM continues Jennifer's journey of acceptance with even more obstacles to face. Jennifer becomes a stronger character and more history of all the species' is revealed. Detailed and intricate, MaryJanice Davidson and Anthony Alongi do not disappoint their readers.

High school student Jennifer Scales knows how tough a mixed racial heritage can be on a teen. On her maternal side, Jennifer descends from powerful beaststalkers on her paternal side, she comes from powerful were-dragons. That blending would prove difficult for anyone in spite of the obvious love between her parents, but beaststalkers have always hunted were-dragons and were-dragons have always attacked beaststalkers. Jennifer wishes everyone would learn to get along. With that in mind she visits her father¿s clan only to have Xavier Longtail the elder dragon informs her that she is crazy going against the natural order of life and death. Her former boyfriend Skip the were-arachnid gives her a necklace and takes her to a movie where she dozes. Afterward, she finds her family vanished with no record of their existence as the were-arachnid mages cast an eradication spell she lives because the necklace caused the spell to skip her. Jennifer needs to restore the old order before the new order finds her. --- This terrific dark teen fantasy scales stratospheric heights with an exciting story line that takes a deep look at mixed racial couples and their biracial offspring. Unlike Jennifer Scales and the Messenger of Light in which the heroine plays Nancy Drew in fantasyland, THE SILVER MOON ELM is a pure fantasy quest as Jennifer is at her best risking her life to bring back her non-existent loved ones. --- Harriet Klausner
