Stori am fachgen sy'n cael ei ddarganfod gan yr heddlu ar ffordd fynyddig anghysbell, gyda babi yn ei freichiau. O strydoedd tref Aberystwyth i unigeddau Pumlumon, mae Mad Dog yn mynd ar daith gyffrous er mwyn darganfod ei hun.

Mad Dog Moonlight is only a young boy when he is picked up by the police on a lonely Welsh mountain road with a baby in his arms. From the streets of Aberystwyth to the lonely hillocks of Plynlimon Mountain, Mad Dog encounters hidden adversaries and unexpected allies in a thrilling journey to discover just who he really is.
This is a powerful novel, which completes the trilogy written by Fisk about the three rivers which flow from Plynlimon Mountain. What fascinates the reader most is the super combination of myth and reality, magic and the everyday. Much is explained, so we are not left to wonder how the story will close. Yet we must suspend our disbelief and accept that, in Magical Realism, anything is possible!

Mad Dog is the victim of a traumatic event which he cannot recall. The novel builds up to its final revelation and introduces us to compelling characters along the way – Aunty, Mad Dog’s foster mother, fiercely protective and frustrated by his actions; the Manager, a manipulative and destructive force in the Lewis family; and Mad Dog himself, driven by forces he does not understand, hunted by memories he cannot control.

Fisk recalls characters from the previous novels in the trilogy, although it is not necessary to have read the others for this impressive tale to draw the reader in. There are beautiful passages of description, particularly up in the mountains, where colour, movement and weather combine to create a magnificent backdrop to the second half of the book. This is one of those books you want to race through, to find out what will happen; and yet, you want to linger because the prose is so beautiful. A triumphant end to the trilogy.
