Giele has spent 20 years fighting wars for the King of Aelfland, but when he makes the mistake of falling in love with the Princess of the Realm, he is stripped of his rank, his citizenship, and his name. His face is marked with the slivered moon, forever identifying him as an outcast. No longer will he find a home among his own people.
He travels halfway across the world to seek a fresh start among the colonists of the continent of Verigo, but the troubles of a marked man seem to follow him wherever he goes. It only takes one mistake, crossing the path of a local gangster, and once more Giele finds himself forced to take on the role of warrior, first to defend those who cannot defend themselves, and then to avenge those he cannot protect.
Pariah's Moon is a harrowing tale of redemption and revenge, bows and bullets, magic and massacre.

Cowboys and Elves!!
Ever want to know what it would be like for Legolas to fire a six gun? Well, this book might give you an idea, as it meshes standard fantasy races with a werstern backdrop, and it does so brilliantly. Giele is an elf who gets betrayed by a princess, causing him to hoof it out of town. He soon finds himself living in a Dances with Wolves situation, in which he goes off with some native people.
I give Healy props; first for conceiving it, and then for pulling it off. Meshing genres isn't easy, and he does a great job. Roelofs does well as the narrator. I can only hope that Healy does some more books in this setting. It was pure fun.

Really unique fantasy story. This isn't the typical book I would listen to but wanted to give it a try and I'm glad I did.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. The fact that I was gifted this book had no influence over my opinion of it.
