Publisher's Summary

The Safe Haven Reserve was supposed to be a place where the remaining tribes could live in peace. But the new head of the facility has turned it into a concentration camp.

When Wynd and his classmates stumble across a band of the planet's displaced natives, Wynd gets ideas on how the tribes can escape the facility. 

As the planet rips itself apart, the mischievous group of friends try to keep the adults in the dark, while the Sav’ine race against time to keep everyone safe. Convincing the warden to open the gates to a safer home becomes impossible. Because, she has secrets of her own.

difficult to describe, but highly recommended

What do you get when 3 alien primates, their human caretakers, and their biomechanical protectors meet the intelligent natives of their host planet? This is the core conflict of Moonstone Child. The 5 species and the Sav'ine communicate with Sign Language. miscommunication occurs, and comedy ensues. Like much of Stacy Benders work, there is tragedy as well. For while the world has predators, the real monster is the always present Doctor Anna.
A real Nurse Ratched, but more thouroughly evil.

An entry in Sav’ine series

While part of the Sav’ine series like the others it stands alone. Like with the other books in the series leaves wanting more

I was not expecting this

I usually do not like books written from the perspective of animals. Not because I don't like animals, I love them. I usually don't like them because something always feels off, like they're too human. In this book though, Bender switches in some weird effortless way from writing about humans and Sav'ine to humans, Sav'ine and very sentient ape-ish creatures. This book very gently forced me to question my fragile human ideals. Bender does a fantastic job of making the characters realistic in a way that makes sense not only to what they are but also who they are without sacrificing their nature. It's familiar and oh so different. As if the story didn't already feel real enough to me Harding breathes so much life into this story with his narration. It's the perfect fit!
