The Crescent Stone (The Sunlit Lands #1)
by Matt Mikalatos
Madeline, a teenager with terminal lung disease, meets a mysterious stranger who offers to heal her in exchange for one year of service in his world, the Sunlit Lands. Madeline and her friend Jason travel to the Sunlit Lands to work for the Elenil people. There is much to discover and enjoy as privileged members of the fantastical Elenil society, but Madeline and Jason soon learn that magic must be bought at a high price.

Cassandra's Review Q&A
- What did you like about the book and why? You have to have imagination and a taste for fantasy to devour this really well written book. The author's style is genuine and fun to indulge in.
- What did you not like about the book and why? I think that even though it is filled with great ideas, the book ends too fast, however the could be a sequel?
- What did you learn? The author went out of the normal writing style to create a great world that can exist in the reader's mind or perhaps be shared out loud.
- To whom would you recommend this book and why? Younger teens and young at heart individuals who can reach into the realms and carry out the more imaginative aspects of the chapters.
