The Stolen Moon of Londor (Book 1)

Overview of the Novel

The era of peace among the elves, men, and dwarves comes to an end when one of Londor’s twin moons disappears from the heavens…..Without the moon’s balancing effect, evil forces grow bold, and warfare, sickness, and chaos threaten life itself.

Hearing the prayers of desperation that ride on the violent winds, the ancient wizard Randor Miithra, servant to the elf-gods, takes it upon himself to mend the world he has sworn to protect. The task will not be an easy one, though, for the wizard, too, has begun to feel the effects of the world’s imbalance. As Randor struggles to maintain some semblance of his powers, he meets a secretive band of colorful characters from all walks of life, drawn together by a common goal: to find the stolen moon, whatever the cost. It does not take Randor and his motley company long to see that someone or something does not want the moon returned to the heavens.

The road is perilous….the stakes have never been greater….will they find victory…or will they only find their deaths?

“If this story was a D&D adventure, I’d play it!  The story mixes archetypes from many genres, Asian, Tolkien, and others to make it fresh enough for even the most hardened readers.  A.P. Stephens is someone to watch!”

–Shannon Flowers, Seattle Geekly

“….Stephens knows how to pack a punch in his novel while keeping the story to a manageable page length, something not everyone strives for now a days….”

–Cindy Hannikman, Fantasy Book Critic

The Stolen Moon of Londor ranks right up there with some of my other favorite fantasy reads: Terry Brooks, Tolkien, Terry Goodkind… Stephens is great at giving a lot of vivid detail without becoming so involved that you lose sight of the story.”

–Melissa, Melissa’s Bookshelf  (full review here)

“I don’t read a great deal of fantasy/sci-fi books. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them, but I am more into character development than escapism. I have to say, though, that THE STOLEN MOON OF LONDOR by A. P. Stephens accomplishes something that made me smile: It gave me both.

What would you do to protect the life and freedoms that you hold dear? How far would you travel in order to make sure the world as you know it remains intact? These questions are part of the storyline that manages to take you up and out of yourself into a new place and puts you at ease along the journey.

I enjoyed THE STOLEN MOON OF LONDOR, and if you are looking for a book that is well-written and provides the escape that so many books try to achieve and don’t, then you will as well.”
