I could not read this book. The writing style did not capture me and I could not get past the first chapter. My wife read it and gave it a good review.

I seriously enjoyed the movie "Willow"; this book and the other two in the series "Shadow Dawn" and "Shadow Star" supposedly continue Willow's story. I've wanted to read these books for a while, because the movie *sorta* left me with a question or two. All this series did was CONFUSE me. I'm an avid fantasy reader, so it's not like these are out of my genre, but the way the books are written, the "explanation" of how the "magic" works, even the events in the book, are so boring and confusing that after I forced my way through this book I had no desire to read the second. It took me a year and major desperation for something to read before I picked up #2. Two and a half years after I forced my way through 2, I finally read 3. Wasted time. I enjoyed the side panel of my cereal box more than this series. There was serious potential after the awesome movie, but they missed the mark by a mile with this series.

First, I did read the whole book and I am an avid fantasy fan. This book needed a much firmer editor's hand than it got. It rambled, it left key parts of the story underdeveloped and the whole denouement after the climax left me feeling as if I was starting another book rather than wrapping up the first one.

Rene Auberjanois gives an excellent reading of this rather dull book. I loved Willow and was eager to find out what happened to everyone. However, my favorite characters were taken out of the story in the first chapter. It seemed to be a similar world to the movie world with radically different and tedious characters -- Claremont did a poor job of recreating the world, or Lucas just came up with another really bad idea (eg. the new trilogy of Star Wars films.) I didn't expect the same thing, but I did want to enjoy it.

enjoyable, but the story takes awhile to develop.

Any one who enjoyed "Willow" is sure to like this sequel which tells what happened afterward.

This book is part of a series that George Lucas and Chris Claremont wrote. It's a series based off of Willow. It's a good book although I found it hard to follow at times.

From George Lucas, creator of STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES, & Chris Claremont, author of the bestselling X-MEN adventures, comes a dazzling saga of adventure and magic...
SHADOW MOON
Thirteen years have passed since the epic battle of Nockmaar freed the land from a tyrant's yoke. But in the time since, the countryside has been wracked by war and chaos. According to prophecy, there is but one hope of deliverance: the Princess Elora Danan. Raised friendless and alone, she has grown into a royal spoiled brat. The fate of the Great Realms rests in her hands, and she couldn't care less. It will take a stranger named Thorn Drumheller to fight the opposing forces of unimaginable malevolence - but first he must strike a devil's bargain and resurrect a powerful warrior from her soulless sleep, bringing her into a world of blood and horror where shadows have declared war on the light.
