Welcome Readers!



It’s the season of love once again! It’s time to get close to your loved one… maybe a little too close for comfort. Whether it’s a moonlit dance in the cemetery, longing for that eternally fatal kiss or watching humanity crumble around you like living inside a world-sized video game, Valentine’s is always, without a shadow of a doubt, a time for lovers.




Here at Tales from the Moonlit Path we LOVE delivering you fresh, mesmerizing if not even shocking fiction that blurs the line between passion and panic – because after all, perhaps they are, on a DNA level, exactly the same thing.
