The Book of Moon: an Loúr ihn G'éalach
"She thought I was too stupid to wonder about the world beyond us and too small to handle the truth that we weren’t alone. And I suppose, too weak to accept I wasn’t wanted in that world I’d been told over and over was too dangerous for me, but clearly wasn’t so for my sisters…and though Little Dandhō said I was part of her family, did I have my own in the Outside? Wasn’t anyone looking for me?"Mi’hal’ē is different from all the other análong, not just on the outside but in ways even she doesn’t understand. Born into a world where no one else looks like her, Mi’hal’ē’s ah’sha has forbidden her to go Outside past the fields. But the key to who she is and who she belongs to might lie far further past the Outside than anyone knows. And if Mi’hal’ē ever does find her truth, can she accept its responsibilities? The Book of Moon: an Loúr ihn G’éalach follows the journey of one young análong as she discovers the truth about family, the price of identity, the power of choice and the requirement of love to save the world.

Perfect for those who’ve gone through ECT, those contemplating ECT and anybody curious in-between.
