Title: Shadow Moon
Author: George Lucas and Chris Claremont
Publisher: Bantam, 1996
Series: The Shadow War, Book 1
Synopsis: 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.
Review: Since this series was written as a sequel to the movie Willow, I so wanted to love this book. I didn't. The beginning was really good. After that....well, I liked it some of the time, but some of it was just plain boring. There were a couple of times I nearly gave up on it all together. I kept waiting and waiting for it to get really good again, but it just never did. It's a shame. I had to really work to finish this book and I will not be completing the series. It's just not good enough to bother with. I do not recommend this trilogy.
