They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars.
That was a long time ago.
My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark.
I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

gripping story telling
His Dark Materials series. The mixture of magical realism, and told with such precision and depth makes this clearly my favorite audio book
I have never listened to an audio book before. Frankly I thought a reader would be distracting but Ms Kaminski actually raised my enjoyment level. I have changed my mind abot audio books
Color me surprised. Audio books can be as great as reading yourself. Thanks.
I found the story slow and boring at times. I was able to finnish, but I had to alot of skipping. Sad part was I didn't really miss anything. When I skipped a chapter ahead it was way to easy to figure out what had happened. Did I mention it was predictable, well it was.
"Day vs Night"
Nice fantasy with an interesting premise.
Moth is set in a world split distinctly into two halves. One side in constant daylight, the other eternal night. As one would expect each half of the world has individual peoples and customs and both believe the other to be nothing more than myth, like the myth that once the world spun and night followed day.
That is of course until a girl goes missing from the light side of the world and is found murdered on the night side. This sparks of a series of events which send a simple gardener from the light side and a fisherman's daughter from the dark side on a journey to prevent a war.
