A Shadow in the Moonlight: A Thirteenth Hour Prequel by Joshua Blum is a short story and a prequel. A young hunter is out in the woods and he gets lost. It is raining and cold, so he looks for shelter. When he finds shelter, it is currently occupied by a man called Mortimer Q. Snodgrass - a wizard. He is in the middle of performing a spell when the hunter comes in. His spell is to make him invisible, but it is only designed for one person. Because the hunter interrupted him, he is now at risk of the spell backfiring, where he will become a shadow, only able to be seen in the moonlight.

Joshua Blum has written a good young adult story with A Shadow in the Moonlight: A Thirteenth Hour Prequel. I haven't read his other work, but this story was quite good. Mortimer Q. Snodgrass is quite a character and I enjoyed his interaction with the hunter. I think this is a good book for young adults and they will enjoy it. It's easy to read and the characters hold your attention. The hunter has no name, which is strange, but his village apparently does not name people. I thought that the drawings included in the book were striking and I really liked the book cover. I think this book will do well on the market and if people have read other books by this author, then they will enjoy this too.
