About Steph Bennion

Steph Bennion is a writer, musician and part-time Westminster civil servant, born and bred in the Black Country but now living in Hastings after finally escaping the black hole of London. Her stories are written as a reaction to the dearth of alternative heroes amidst bookshelves swamped by tales of the supernatural, not that there’s nothing wrong with a bit of fantasy now and again. HOLLOW MOON, the first novel in her space-opera tales of mystery and adventure, was published in 2012. THE AVALON JOB is the fourth, with more to come. Under the name Stephanie M Bennion, she has written speculative fiction for older readers. Her last novel was THE LUCK OF THE DEVIL, a tale of supernatural transgender angst in 1990s Ireland, published in 2018. The time-travelling romp THE BATTLES OF HASTINGS, a novella inspired by her adopted town and the 950th anniversary of the event that shaped the British Isles today, was published in 2016.

About the Series: Hollow Moon
A LONG TIME FROM NOW IN A GALAXY WE CALL HOME... Welcome to tales of space-opera mystery and adventure! It is the twenty-third century and scientists, dreamers, crooks and believers have bridged the vast cosmos, staking their claims where distant suns burn fierce in the sky. Join our intrepid teenage heroine Ravana O'Brien, an Indian-Australian trainee engineer from an asteroid colony ship at Barnard’s Star, as she embarks on a voyage of personal discovery through the five systems and beyond. Why are Priest Taranis and his alien-worshipping Dhusarian Church so interested in her fate? Are the rumoured greys of Epsilon Eridani just a myth? Who thought creepy cyberclones were a good idea? Are some people really as idiotic as they seem? Hollow Moon is for all who relish a dose of humour and practical astrophysics with their fantasy, for young adults and adults young at heart!
"The world building is excellent, the characters intriguing and the action a mix of drama and an occasional scene of pure slapstick that had me chuckling away. [...] If you like space opera, then I recommend this series." - (Awesome Indies' review of CITY OF DECEIT).

I am not the audience for this book, I tried byt stopped about 25% of the way in. An very original retelling of Cinderella, but the setting was too unfamiliar to me, I was not able to relate to it,so felt lost.

A future version of a classic fairy tale. Very well written and easy to read, but even though the story is familiar there are many interesting twists and turns that will bring a smile to your face.
The only minor criticism that I could make is that, for me, it ended a little too quickly - I would have liked an expanded ending.
I will certainly look forward to reading more of the authors stories - and possibly using a similar basis - more future fairy stories.
