Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, “moon,” a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother- daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where the story unfolds.

In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera (their queen), a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test, as Prospera directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.
