From two of the greatest imaginations of our time comes a magnificent novel of adventure and magic...SHADOW MOON: First in the Chronicles of the Shadow War. The genius of Star Wars(r) creator George Lucas and the vision of Chris Claremont, the author of the phenomenally bestselling The Uncanny X-Men adventures, merge in what must be the fantasy event of the year. In Shadow Moon, war and chaos have gripped the land of Tir Asleen. An ancient prophecy reveals one hope: a savior princess who will ascend to the throne when the time is right.  But first, a Nelwyn wanderer must face forces of unimaginable malevolence and dangerous, forbidden rites of necromancy that could bring back a powerful warrior from soulless sleep. George Lucas reshaped filmmaking in the '70s and '80s with his Star Wars and Indiana Jones films.  When Bantam Books asked Lucas if he had any stories he would like to develop as novels rather than as films, Lucas turned to his 1988 fantasy film, Willow.   "When I wrote the story for Willow, I began with the pre-story," Lucas said, "but the full story was yet to be told."   Now, Lucas's vision is being fulfilled with the talented help of Chris Claremont. Having previously taken the reins of what was for a decade the bestselling comic in the western hemisphere (The Uncanny X-Men) Claremont assumes the reponsibility of foster parent to Lucas's creation. On sale in hardcover now, and available on BDD Audio Cassette as well, SHADOW MOON is a momentous new adventure for readers looking to spend part of this summer in a fantastic world.  SHADOW MOON is one of Bantam Spectra's most exciting publishing events in 1995, the year we celebrate our 10th Anniversary as the premiere publishing imprint of books of speculative fiction.… (more)

I feel like there was something else I should have read before reading this. The book jumps right in with characters and names and races and little to no explanation. the scenes were changing constantly, including many of the same characters and it was incredibly hard to keep track of them. Please don't ask me what happened in the book 'cause I'm honestly not sure about anything. So many characters had so many nicknames and I wasn't even given any time to get their names straight before they got second, third and fourth nicknames. I have no idea what the scale of the book is, time or place wise.

The only reason why I did not give this 1 star was that it was not a struggle to read through. While I was constantly confused, many parts seemed cool or something. There was also good characterization for the few names I believe to be the same person though seriously it's hard to tell and I don't feel like this is the worst book ever written. I really just felt like this needed a lot more context and that it was very bad at explaining concepts, characater and pretty much everything. ( )

I read this in conjunction with listening to the 372 Pages We’ll Never Get Back podcast. It’s dire. Characters appear and disappear out of nowhere. At least two paragraphs are repeated. There are long winding unnecessary descriptions of mundane crap. Attempts at humor, characters switching sides and back again and then switching sides again. At least at couple of what seem like what could be only described as acid trips and absolutely no paragraph breaks worth mentioning. It’s a chore to read. Stay away. ( )

I guess I didn't like the movie Willow" as much as I thought I did. I got 5 pages into this book and then just put it away. Didn't care, wasn't interested." ( )

Don't read this. If you watched Willow and like that movie don't read this book. If I could give this a zero I would. ( )

The final book from the Moonstone bundle. It was better than Moon Spun, because it actually made some sense. But still, it could've been improved.

I didn't really like the constant repeating what had happened in the previous installments every time a character's name was mentioned. Sometimes that was done every time a character was mentioned, and it really got me rolling my eyes.

But there was lots of Junior, new mysteries, and finally there was some moving forward. We weren't stuck in faery land anymore, but we were exploring Allie's world along with her. I liked the motion and the new things that got revealed along the way.

I kind of got freaked out at the appearance of that Jessy dude (or however his name was spelled), and he honestly annoyed me. But it was a nice reality check - that one shouldn't believe in everything one hears and sees.

And the new girl, Sammie, appeared in just the right moment. I was sure who she was almost from the beginning, and was glad to see that I was right.

I enjoyed the book, it was a quick light read that had me occupied for a little while. I recommend it to the 14-17 year old girl audience. I think they'd love Allie's voice and her strong willed character. ( )
