Clover at Fluttering Butterflies says Shadows on the Moon: "I love books set in Japan, even (especially?) fantasy feudal Japan. I especially love that it's a fairy tale retelling that gives Cinderella some strength and pretty awesome magical abilities in the shape of Suzume, the main character. My heart went out to her but also to lovely people that she comes to depend on. This book has sorrow, revenge, an amazingly swoon-worthy romance, beautiful Japanese setting & amazing storytelling!"
