    Title: The Moon Dwellers Author: David Estes Reviewed: Bella Scott The Moon Dwellers by David Estes is a strong introduction to a series that shows a great deal of promise. The novel paints a realistic story of how humans were forced to live underground. It is also a realistic portrayal of the ruling elite and the oppression that the lower classes are afflicted with. The heroine of the story is a young girl called Adele, whose family is torn apart when they are labelled as traitors and taken to separate prisons. Through strength Adele finds friendships she never dreamed of having as she embarks on a quest to find her family and potentially join a rebellion. Tristan is heir to the throne of the Moon Dwellers but unlike his corrupt father he is kind and good. After his mother mysteriously disappears and jaded by the greed around him, Tristan embarks on his own quest with the help of his trusted friend to find the girl who in a glance seemed to capture his heart. This book is a good lead into what I'm hoping will be a great trilogy. I think the connection between Adele and Tristan in this prequel is believable enough to keep us all waiting patiently to see how the story unfolds between them. I really liked the book. I do look forward to reading the others.
