The Cloud Roads, by Martha Wells

Dragonriderskin of Two MoonsThree Worlds.


The Cloud Roads

Night Shade Books, 2011, 278 pages



Moon has spent his life hiding what he is - a shape-shifter able to transform himself into a winged creature of flight. An orphan with only vague memories of his own kind, Moon tries to fit in among the tribes of his river valley, with mixed success. Just as Moon is once again cast out by his adopted tribe, he discovers a shape-shifter like himself... someone who seems to know exactly what he is, who promises that Moon will be welcomed into his community. What this stranger doesn't tell Moon is that his presence will tip the balance of power... that his extraordinary lineage is crucial to the colony's survival... and that his people face extinction at the hands of the dreaded Fell! Now Moon must overcome a lifetime of conditioning in order to save himself... and his newfound kin.


It took me a while to figure out why this book was annoying me so much.

Easily -- easily -- one of the worst books I've read in recent years. My review: http://rickreads.blogspot.com/2013/03/2013-read-33-cloud-roads-by-martha-wells.html

I didn't hate it as much as you did, but yeah, your review is pretty accurate.
