The Moonstone by Evelyne Contant

Title : The Moonstone

Author:Evelyne Contant

Rating:4.5/5 stars


Fear, love… and betrayal; that’s what I feel about my new life.
It’s a life I never asked for, at least not like that.
I certainly dreamed of adventure, of escaping from my ordinary life, but nothing prepared me for what would happen when my normal life flipped upside down.
On that fateful day, a witch, a real one, revealed to me that I’m not human! That’s right, I, Lou Mills, am an enchanter like her! It seems that I’m the key to an ancient prophecy and that I must save the world from the imminent war between humans and enchanters. What waits makes no sense; in fact, nothing seems to make sense to me since meeting her.
And then there’s this man…dark and mysterious…but so attractive. If only I could forget him. Duality is the way the Earth remains in balance, black and white, right and wrong, love and hate. What side should I fight for when the war finally breaks out? How to choose between my family…and the people who I belong to?


“The Moonstone” is one of the best books I’ve read in the past couple of weeks.It has everything: drama, magic,mythology ,love and many more ,all put together to create a story that won’t let you go until you finish it. It is written in such a way that you get attached to the characters and you want to get to know them better.

The start of the book is a bit slow ,where we get introduced to this new world and the characters, but when the action starts , you will not be able to put the book down. The world that is presented to us is so vivid ,full of secrets and mystery, which is one of the many reasons why “The Moonstone”is so special.

Moving on to the characters, Lou is one of my favorites. She is strong , confident and bold. Flicka proves herself to be a true friend to Lou and it is so nice to see a character that is so passionate about something the way Flicka is about fashion.We need more characters like her in the future.Now, for the male of the book, Black is such an interesting character because you sometimes want to despise him , but you just can’t. He is an amazing choice for the book.

Another great thing about this book was the development of the relationship between Lou and Black.It becomes all sorts of complicated, but it is worth reading until the end to see how it  evolves. Speaking of the end, the conclusion to the book just blew my mind away but I will leave that to you to find out and be blown away yourself.

To conclude, I loved this book so much. I grew fond of the characters , the writing and the world that we encounter. The only thing that bothered me is the fact that now I have to wait to see what happens in the next book. Congratulations to Evelyne for this wonderful book and thank you for trusting me with reading and reviewing your lovely creation!
