Rhys is walking in the square on a
snowy night when he meets his former lover Isaac. Still
loving the man very much, Rhys goes to talk to him. The
whole night is odd, from the strangely silent Isaac to the
seemingly magic thing that happens next. Will Rhys get the
second chance heís wanted?
Well Met by Moonlight features an unusual
premise and writing style. The entire story is in the
present tense, which was confusing at first. Once I got
used to Zoey Danielsí choice of tense, however, the story
flowed and seemed to keep events in the moment. Through
Rhysí reflections, itís obvious he harbors many regrets.
His past actions somehow drove Isaac away, and heís missed
the man ever since. His pain at his mistake and his hope at
seeing Isaac again were well conveyed. Since the story
focuses on Rhys, Isaac isnít very developed. Heís clearly
the weaker of the two physically, but itís implied that heís
stronger emotionally. Other than that, I had a hard time
getting a feel for him. There was an interesting
fantasy/paranormal vibe to this tale that I liked, as well
as a hopeful ending. While not perfect, Well Met by
Moonlight is an unusual and different tale of second
chances unlike anything else Iíve ever read.
