Ok, first off, both books have lived up to the byline on the top of each.."from 2 of the most celebrated imaginations of our time..."
I found it nice to see they concentrated on Elora... For if she were to fufill her role as Sacred Princess, they really deeded to develop the character quite a bit more. as you read each of the main dream sequences Elora had with Kieron ( the first one a lot more than the rest ) you get this urge to go back to the front to look at the illustration of the Great Realms and how Elora is connected to each of the circles..
Suffice to say..I eagerly await Shadow Star, and the eventual movies..(you dont think Mr. Lucas took the time to develop the story and put his name on it if he didnt plan to make them into movies eventually, did you??)

I love "Shadow Dawn". "Willow" is one of my favorite movies. When I found out there were books to follow I admediatly went out to my them. Now I'm waiting for the third and can't wait!! I still haven't been able to find a screenplay of "Willow" which I will continue to look for. "Shadow Moon" was good but I think that "Shadow Dawn" kept me slightly more captivated. But I still don't understand why they killed of two of my favorite characters, Sorsha, and Madmartigan. They gave the movie the flare, which I sorely miss. Perhaps Lucas and Claremont will find some interesting way to bring them back into the next book!!!! We can only hope.

Better than Shadow Moon, but not by too much. The writing has improved, the characters are slightly more believable. But I still get the impression that I've missed something. The ideas flow from the authors faster than they can absorbed by the reader. It's like watching the T.V. with the sound off, you are only getting a portion of what is meant. I commented that the first book, Shadow Moon needed an impartial, unfamiliar editor to ask questions and to fill in the blanks for us. The same goes for Shadow Dawn. I finished the book as unsatisfied as if it had been put down in the middle. Again I ask "What was that all about? What happened?" Maybe part 3 will be better?

After Shadow Moon, I was a little nervous about trying Shadow Dawn, but as a fan of the movie Willow, I had to find out what was going to happen next. The pace of this new one was definitely more even, and Claremont was able to paint a clear picture of the action. Elora Danan takes the center stage literally and figuratively; she is the main character of Shadow Dawn instead of Thorn Drumheller, appropriate enough since it is obvious that this trilogy is her story. It also becomes clear how this hunted and hated Sacred Princess is supposed to be the savior of the thirteen realms. This book takes a place on my bookshelf among few other all time favorites.

This trilogy (Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn and Shadow Star) really does shine as yet another example of what can happen when a trilogy is written based on a succesful Gearge Lucas film. Following on from the "and they all lived happily ever after" ending of the film the books quite wonderfully shatter that myth by starting with a semi-Apocalypse and continuing with Willow once again being dragged away from his family (and this time he's in for the long haul), as once again he must save Elora Danann, if only from herself, for the Princess of the prophecies has grown up to be a spoilt brat with an inflated sense of her own importance.

As a fan of "Willow" I both enjoyed and hated reading Shadow Moon. But I was so intrigued by Claremont's reversal of chararcters and events that I had to read Shadow Dawn. Again he surprised me with new reversals in character and a fast tempo from the beginning of the book. He also treats readers to new revelations about Elora Danan's role in the binding of the Twelve Realms, Ryn's true identity and relationship to Anakerie, Thorn's feelings for Anakerie, and the identity of the Deceiver in the final chapter. Talk about a cliff hanger! There is no way I am going to miss reading the third book!

I read this without having read Shadow Moon or Willow and I thought it was great. I am an advid fan of fantasy and the D&D genre. I found the book easy to follow with very few exceptions in the less eventful areas. After talking to friends we have come to the conclusion this book is easier to follow if you already have a strong fantasy & folk lore understanding. The charcters were very vivid with the exception of Duguay which was done on purpose. I found myself never needing to stuggle to visualize the scenery or scenerio. This is a very good read.

A very worthy successor to Shadow Dawn, one that makes Chris Claremont's Nicole Shea trilogy pale by comparison. As always, the Claremont trademarks: strong characterization, subtle plot details, epic storytelling in well-crafted chapters. The ending is a surprise -- yet at the same time it makes perfect sense in light of everything that has happened thus far. I eagerly await the conclusion.
