The Moon Realm series is an award-winning[1] middle-grade fantasy series by American author Richard Due,[2] with illustrations by Carolyn Arcabascio. The first two books in the series were published in 2012.

Settings[edit]

The series takes place on Treling, an old tree nursery in modern day Pennsylvania, and in the Moon Realm. Although first introduced as a fictional place, by an uncle to his niece and nephew, the real Moon Realm turns out to be far darker than originally described. Inhabiting the nine moons of the realm are a variety of talking creatures, including lunamancers, merfolk, giants, faeries, and the horse-sized, cat-like Rinn. But one previously unmentioned character overshadows all: the evil, nine-named villain Wrengfoul.
