The Moon Hunters by Anya Pavelle is a post-apocalyptic science fiction. While most books of this genre create hellscapes of the world we live in, this book takes on a unique twist–the first of many in this book.
I love books that are based on what-if scenarios. In this case, Anya explored how family ties and the need for survival play out over multiple generations. The reader is introduced to a village that has taken several steps back in terms of societal development.
This brings me to another what-if. How can an author create a strong female lead in a world where women are literally suppressed and repressed? How can an individual, programmed from birth, have any hope of pushing back against their societal expectations?
Anya weaves these what-ifs, their answers, and more in a beautiful way. The story will draw you in, immerse you in a world that, while different on the surface, mirrors our own in subtle ways. This book also provides the reader with a satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend this!
