Kyreol's small world begins at the Face, a high rock cliff, and ends at Fourteen Falls, a series of rapids. Each year, her people celebrate Moon-Flash—a spark of light that seems to come from and go into the moon, a symbol of life and joy.

Those answers will pluck Kyreol from Riverworld and transform her life forever—by fast-forwarding her into a future she can barely comprehend. My Thoughts: I have yet to read a book by McKillip that I don't like. This was no exception. Beautiful, flowing, as much about the pacing of the words and sentences as the story itself. In all honesty, the story itself didn't do a thing for me. " ( )

I have no kick to read this one again. once was enough. it was a good read, but tough, and, to be honest, a little boring now that I think of it. Passing this one along ( )

I thought Fool's Run was McKillip's only science fiction, but apparently not. I also thought I'd read this at some point when I was younger, but if I did, I have no memory of it at all, not the slightest sense of deja-vu.Not nearly as obscure and allusive as her later fantasies. I really enjoyed it, so perhaps I haven't really lost my ear for McKillip. Perhaps simpler because it was a Young Adult, but mostly I think her stylistic characteristics were not at that time exaggerated.One thing that struck me - the "primitive" peoples, cultures on the plain and by the river, worshiping the space-ship so carefully sent out for them, the Moon-Flash - they were like animals in a wildlife preserve. Kept, to study and watch. Kept ignorant. Out of love? The girl, her mother and the boy did grow, I think, leaving their place, they changed and learned. And no-one questioned whether it was reasonable to keep that from the others. ( )

Moon Flash by Patricia A. McKillip (8/10)
YA SF. I've been meaning to reread this since it was rereleased and finally got around to it. I last read it at 16 and I really liked it all over again now, although there was one major world building issue I never saw before that kept bugging me as an adult reader. ( )
