Summary from Goodreads: The Hunter’s Moon, follows two cousins, Gwen and Findabhair, as they backpack around Ireland in search of the country’s magical past. When she arrives in Ireland to visit her cousin Findabhair, American Gwen expects a fun backpacking trip to sites of the fairy lore they’re both fascinated with. What neither cousin knows is that it’s the summer of the Hunter’s Moon, a dangerous time for mortals to meddle in the kingdom of Faerie. The girls camp out, and deep in the night Finn is kidnapped by the handsome Faerie king! In Gwen’s quest to save her cousin, across beautifully evoked settings of modern-day and mystical Ireland, the spunky heroine’s biggest challenge may be convincing Finn she needs to be saved!
This first novel in “The Chronicles of Faerie” was praised for “Melling’s taut plotting, with its unexpected turns, [that] moves the story quickly to a climax and leaves readers wanting more.” (“School Library Journal”)
