H. S. J.Williams
BOOK 1 OF KINGS OF ASELVIA
"It is said that Darkness is empty and whatever vanishes into its depths is lost forever. I know this better than anyone. For I have suffered here in the shadows, and there are none who might find me.”
Seventy years. Seventy years the elven prince has been lost to the darkness, assumed dead by his people and endlessly broken for a book that connects to the hidden realm of his ancestors, a land untouched by evil.
And now a light in the shadows. A chance for freedom. But those willing to help him come from the unlikeliest of worlds.
The orphan girl, yearning for a loving family, and the boy who won’t leave her side. A healer maiden given an unexpected chance for a life beyond narrowed expectations. A grieving creature flown far from home.
They all search for something and now their fates are tied to his. If their quest for life can pull him from the dark mire in which his soul drowns, then perhaps he can be saved.
Or else he will drag them all down to a fate worse than death.
The beginning of an epic saga, MOONSCRIPT is a journey of innocence, despair, and redemption.

This is a wondrously beautiful book, raw with pain and rich with hope. H.S.J. Williams's deft imagination breathes life into a vivid world of elves and humans (and other stranger fantastical creatures), lower and higher realms, and the Darkness that seeks to claim it all. Upon this epic tapestry, delightful characters provide a bright contrast and serve as a living embodiment of hope in the face of despair. You'll find yourself alternating between tears, laughter, and smiles in turn.
