Review of Sun and Moon by Elizabeth Paradise

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley for an honest review. The premise of Sun and Moon intrigued me. A world filled with magic suddenly and unexpectedly gets that magic taken away, and the story follows two young people that are caught in the middle of this event’s aftermath. Unfortunately, this story by author Elizabeth Paradise turned out to be an indie novel that still needs a lot of work. There were a significant amount of typos in the book. So many, in fact, that they were distracting from the book’s plot. The book was set up well, but after the first few chapters the story seemed very rushed, and it was hard to care for either of the protagonists.
Sun and Moonis a book that does have potential. It has a great premise, and a writing style that is perfect for young readers. If the author does some editing, then this novel would be a great gift for a middle school to high school aged young adult. Unfortunately I do not see it as one of the YA novels that is appropriate for adults as well as young readers. Overall, I would give this book a 5/10. If the book gets edited properly it would probably be a 6.5/10.
