  • A fantastic YA novel that explores gender

    Two Dark Moons is made up of my favourite things, lizards, queerness and a new take on fantasy worlds. Sohmeng Par is ready to prove to everyone she's ready to grow up if only she would be given a chance. Luckily or unluckily for her, she literally falls out of the world she's grown up in and down into another: one that brings many questions, predators and a possible new family. The first thing that stood out in this novel was the world-building, Silver has created a world in which gender and social roles are derived from one's horoscope. Silver delves into themes such as one's role within their community & if gods or community leaders predestine our lives. Or if we can make something of ourselves from our own choosing. Their protagonist, Sohmeng Par, is a wonderful person to follow. She has the right amount of defiance a YA protagonist should have. With awareness and care for how she impacts herself and community (and her worries of too-muchness! Something I'm sure many of us feel). Her relationships with her older brother (who is attempting courtship, and I saw my own brother in him) her community are both realistic and moving. Her relationship with Hei, our lizardy friend, is also wonderful to read. I love Hei so much; they are an amazingly funny and complicated character. The character development we see is fantastic, and I can't wait to see how Sohmeng and Hei will continue to grow as individuals and together later in the series. A truly fantastic blend of gender identity, self-worth, social position, and the ethical dilemma of biting people you just met!

    Avi is great storyteller, nicely describe internal turmoil of main character and her relationship with the Sãoni... so different species and learning to adapt to another culture.
