A Shadow in the Moonlight: A Thirteenth Hour Prequel Book Review

A Shadow in the Moonlight: A Thirteenth Hour PrequelA Shadow in the Moonlight: A Thirteenth Hour Prequel by Joshua Blum
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

source : I received a digital copy on a read to review basis
thanks to author Joshua Blum

the story of a man cursed by a spell , meant to be a shadow for the rest of his days
and an orphan girl who might break the curse ..

that I've read the novella before the novel is a little unsettling as , me reviewing this book as a separated story would definitely differ if it is a part of sequence

"she reached the back of the cave and found a bed, bookshelves, fireplace, and a storeroom
filled with food. On a small table lay a book, a quill pen, and an ink bottle. Lavinia picked up the book
and opened it to the first page, which was dated with a brief paragraph. As she read, she was transported to a land of wizards, spells, enchanted forests, secret caves, AND lost hunters. "

for i haven't read the novel , i may say that at some point of the novella i had a flickering hope of some sort
when the girl found the diary a whole scenario played in my mind
a novel about a girl and a shadow , communicating through a diary
someone lonely and cursed with a shelf of books and years of solitude may end up making a wise person which means a good deal of prose and beautiful literature but ! * shaken awake * i realized the story cant stretched this deep for its a novella
then came the rushed end before an enough time for the girl's wounds to heal , the spell was broken the two got married and had a child

so !
its a novella of a novel i haven't read yet , i cant really be critical or anything
all in all it was nice and gripped my attention at some point ..
