Blue Moon Rising is my favorite book!
am 7. März 2000
I picked up this book years ago when it first came out and it instantly became my favorite. Simon Green did a beautiful job fleshing out the characters and story. Reading it makes you feel like you are part of the story.
Everyone I have ever lent this book to has loved it as much as I do(all of us think it should be made into a TV show or miniseries...a 2hr movie just wouldn't do it justice). I still keep 3 copies of it on my bookshelf: one for me to read, one to lend out, and one to replace either of the previous when they wear out(and believe me, they do! I have purchased over 14 copies of this book over the years to replace the ones that have literally fallen apart from use). You might think about buying at least 2 copies for yourself!
The story is wonderful! It follows the adventures of a second-son prince named Rupert as he tries to save his kingdom from poverty, his older brother, and the Dark Wood's evil master. His friends that he gathers through this tale range from a "moody" tomboy princess to a prissy dragon to a cowardly unicorn.
Trust me, you will not get bored reading this book. Its full of humor, action, adventure, drama, and magic. The characters, the story, and especially the settings will capture your imagination like no other book.
other books in the Dark Wood series: Blood and Honor; Down Among the Dead Men.
