Fierce orphan girl, Minou Moonshine, lives with her grandmother on a makeshift barge in the shadow of the General’s palace. Under the tyrant’s rule, life in Moonlally is hard: the monsoons have failed and worship of their goddess, the Dark Lady, is forbidden. When Minou’s beloved Dima is murdered, she joins the secretive Green Orchids, rebels plotting to overthrow the General. Amid the lush jungles, mountain villages and treetop temples of Indica, Minou begins a winding journey with her two friends and a mechanical elephant, on the adventure of a lifetime. Can Minou bring back the floods and the ancient power of the Dark Lady, as well as finding the Queen and her own place in the future of Moonlally?
