Every year, on the Day of Sacrifice, the people of Protectorate leave the youngest baby of their village waiting by the edge of the forest as a sacrifice to the evil witch.
However, the people of Protectorate don't realize that the witch in the forest is kind and gentle, taking each sacrificed baby to a new village where they can be cared for every year.
One year, the witch takes the new baby on the forest's edge and accidentally feeds her moonlight instead of starlight, making her magical. Realizing her mistake, the witch decides to keep the baby for her own, calling her Luna.
As Luna grows, so does her magic. And every year, the witch is getting older and older. Meanwhile, there is a man in Protectorate that wishes to kill the witch so the people of the village won't have to give up any more of their babies. And there is also a woman who dreams of having her daughter back.
This was a very unique book in my opinion. It was a little too weird for me, but I imagine others that prefer fantasy and suspense would enjoy this novel.
