Overview

Book One in the Moon, Sun, Star Trilogy
Book Two: Heretic Sun (forthcoming)

Once the most powerful of the Athraskani wizards, Thraxis can no longer use his magic thanks to a death curse cast on him by the rogue mage Balthazar. In a society where a wizard’s power determines his status, Thraxis has gone from being one of the elite to a barely-tolerated burden.

From the day of her birth, The Arrow That Flies the Farthest was destined to be the Champion of the Red Feather Clan. Her strength and prowess against the other Champions of the Skald clans has allowed the Red Feathers to dominate the steppes. But when the coming of Balthazar plunges the Skald into all-out war, Arrow must turn to the wizards for help. Their only aid comes in the form of Thraxis—a dying man whose use of magic will only kill him faster.

Together, Arrow and Thraxis must stop Balthazar before he can crush the last of those who yet oppose him. But can a man sworn to do no harm and a woman born to kill find the common ground to defeat their enemy, before time runs out for them both?

    Wow!

    Arrow that Flies the Farthest was the Champion of her barbarian clan, the Red Feathers. She had been trained for the task since the age of five. At fifteen she killed her first Champion. Duty and honor bound, she did as her chief, Blood on the Wind, bade her to do. In greed, he challenged each clan and had Arrow defeat their Champion in combat for their land. But when a sorcerer named Balthazar joined the Red Feather clan, they became unstoppable! Balthazar had an amulet that trapped the souls of enemies and fed his magic. Using it, he made Arrow into a berserker. Speed made her a blur to others. Her strength multiplied and her senses sharpened. When Blood forced her to kill the king of all the clans, along with women and children, she rebelled. ................... Thraxis was an Athraskani (wizard). He was the best ever born. When Balthazar stole an amulet and left the order, he also left a death trap behind for Thraxis. Thraxis managed to stay alive, but could not stop the spell. It was slowly killing him. It took all his magic to keep the spell slow. Even so, he had only months to live. ..................... Arrow asked the Black Council for help in defeating Balthazar. Since Thraxis was useless to them, they sent him. On the way to meet the rebels who felt as Arrow did, Thraxis searched out another Athraskani named Viabold for aide. Many secrets were revealed to each other in their travels. Only they had a chance to stop Blood and Balthazar. ................. ***** W-O-W! Here is an awesome story! I tried to keep the vital things out and reveal only what I had to in the synopsis. You will NOT be disappointed in this book! Danger, many battles, betrayal, love, and villains that seem invincible! Highly recommended reading here! *****

    Excellent Sword and Sorcery Fantasy

    I picked up "Tyrant Moon" after seeing Corvidae on a panel at a fantasy convention. I was surprised st just how much I enjoyed the story. :)

    Thraxis and Arrow are terrific characters. While Thraxis starts out as whiny and almost unlikeable, he changes and matures over the course of the tale. Viabold is a riot, while Blathasar (the villain) is actually a bit sympathetic.

    Plus, I really like how Corvidae structures the narrative. The chapters flip-flop between the main story of Arrow and Thraxis fighting Balthasar, and the "prequel" in which Arrow sets out on her quest to find help against Balthasar; the two narratives fold together neatly, with the book ending in the same place it began.

    Highly recommended to fans of epic fantasy, or those looking for a story with a strong female protagonist. -- lyradora
