Helpful Score: 1
I seriously enjoyed the movie "Willow"; this book is the last in a series of three ("Shadow Moon" and "Shadow Dawn" are the other two) that supposedly continues 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 the first book I had no desire to read the second one. It took me a year and major desperation for something to read before I picked it up. Two and a half years after I forced my way through the second one, I finally read this one. I'm actually not even sure if I ever finished it (shows you how exciting and interesting it is), and that doesn't bother me at all. 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.
I tend to like female authors better, but I decided to read these books because I loved Willow as a child. Just like any books that have movies you will get annoyed at certain things. You have the directors vision of the world in your head but the author is describing another. I really enjoyed the series, though. A great one to read and pass on.
