The Girl Who Drank the Moon BSY650

US$17.95

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.

One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna’s thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge--with dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth’s surface. And the woman with the Tiger’s heart is on the prowl . . .

    在每一年的同一时间,“保护区”的人们都要把一个小婴孩放在森林里,献给女巫。他们指望通过牺牲婴孩的性命来避免灾难,换取整个保护区的平安。其实,森林里的女巫仙婆婆是个非常善良的人,她跟睿智的沼泽怪兽和完美的小飞龙生活在一起。仙婆婆每年都要及时赶来,救起这些婴孩,一路长途跋涉、精心照料,把他们带到森林另一端那些喜爱孩子的家庭里去。

    有一年,仙婆婆不小心将月光当作星光喂给了一个女婴,无意中将超级魔法注入她的体内。为了弥补自己犯下的错误,仙婆婆决定留下这个女婴,给她起名叫卢娜,把她当作自己的亲骨肉来抚养。当卢娜快满十三岁的时候,她体内的魔法开始“苏醒”,同时产生了非常危险的后果。而与此同时,一个来自保护区的青年为了整个城镇的自由,前来行刺女巫。致命的鸟儿怀着不为人知的目的聚集在附近;沉睡了几百年的火山开始隆隆作响;胸膛里有一颗老虎心的妇人悄悄地走了过来……
