The Moon Child is a meta-mythic fantasy novel about love and magic, passion and betrayal. Maria the Moon Child was an outcast from the barrio. She was feared and shunned because of her moonpower, her psychic ability to communicate with enchanted spirits and see the future in dreams and visions. Two men fall in love with her: Arturo, the barrio captain, a down-to earth man of power and authority; and Juanito, the Charmer of the Groves, a man of mystery and magic. When Maria is forced to choose between them--tragedy occurs. Their lives become entangled like the roots of a balete tree, as they journey through a dark labyrinth of love, passion and betrayal.
