Summary: In four drabbles, a progression from start to the end.

Reviewed by: Dreamflower -- Score: 4

Four starkly beautiful drabbles from Merry's point of view, as the moon overlooks different occasions: waiting for the walking party to arrive at Crickhollow; Weathertop; after the storming of Isengard; and then at Cormallen, before Pippin awakens. Each of them is done beautifully with an economy of words, not a one of which is wasted, but I think that my favorite is the one at Isengard.

Reviewed by: Lindelea -- Score: 2

Dana's usual superlative writing; a set of four drabbles, from Merry's POV. Atmospheric, moody, poetical.

Reviewed by: Larner -- Score: 2

Four moments of uncertainty Merry faces, each in its own drabble. Well done, strong imagery. Well, well worth the read.

Reviewed by: Marigold -- Score: 1

Such lovely imagery in so few words. I love them all, but my favourite is at Isengard.

Reviewed by: Llinos -- Score: 1

Very vivid descriptions. Dana captures each scene so well. These are lovely drabbles.
