The feigned Moon of Entiria by E. A. Bagby (Book Review #747)


The feigned moon is a speculative sci-fi fantasy story about Giel, who has just turned 18. He has to recite a traditional story in front of his father, who is the shaman council leader and the people of his tribe. If he succeeds, he can then be considered to have a lead role as a storyteller.

Giel has a friend named Cleo. He has not seen her for a long time, and as he goes hunting for the tribe one day, he sees Cleo. She isn’t alone. Erikal is with her. The feeling of jealousy and curiosity takes over Giel. Erikal hands him some recorder and tells him that it contains a message inside, which wonders Giel’s mind. He wants to go with them, but if he misses the ceremony, he also loses his one and only chance.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The message in the recorder, Giel’s father, the tribe’s expectations over Giel and the shaman councils doubts about Erikal’s intentions all build up creating an epic story. Losing Cloe is out of the question. His feelings for her are powerful, and therefore, when she asks him to join her, the story takes on another level.

The sci-fi wasn’t as strong as I thought it would be considering the genre, but it was very fitting for the story. I particularly enjoyed the constant sway of heart and emotions Giel was under. His position and role as the son of the leader, how much he wanted to please his family, but at the same time, his heart, love for Cloe was charming.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read new adult college fantasy and coming of age stories.
