The Timekeeper's Moon by Joni Sensel

Title: The Timekeeper's Moon
Author: Joni Sensel
Reviewer: Stephanie
Genre: YA Fantasy
Rating: Worship
Alerts/Warnings: none
Premise: When Ariel Farwalker hears the moon talking to her, she thinks she must be going crazy. Then she discovers an ancient map, and learns that the moon is part of a mysterious summons that's calling her on a new journey.

With her surly guardian Scarl by her side, Ariel sets out on an adventure that leads her to new friends-the beautiful Flame-Mage Sienna and the mute boy Nace, who captures Ariel's heart. As the four travel on, strange things start to happen-fragments of Ariel's past appear in the present, so that it seems that time itself is coming undone. At the end of the journey, Ariel will learn where her journey began, and have a chance to save her life as she knows it.

Opinions: I am ashamed to admit that I read this book over a year ago and forgot to write a review (hangs head in shame). So I am going to repent and write this review now. PLUS the next review I post will be the final book in this trilogy. The first book in this trilogy is "The Farwalker's Quest" (for my review go here.) When I finished "The Farwalker's Quest" I was completely satisfied. While I wanted to read a sequel, I wasn't sure there would be one. However! I am so glad that there is! I loved loved loved this book. It follows Ariel and Scarl on a journey pushed on Ariel by the moon.

One of the things I like about this book is that in "The Farwalker's Quest" Ariel is learning that she is a farwalker and what that means.  In this book, she is actually farwalking, and it is both interesting and complex.  I love how she grows.  I also really like how her character develops.  Plus the new characters appeal to me and are highly delightful.

This is an amazing series that I have loved.  Stay tuned for my review on the final book.  It's a good one.
