4.0 out of 5 stars Out of the ordinary, 20 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Killing Moon: Dreamblood: Book 1 (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must admit that I had very few expectations for this title, and for the following reasons; despite being an avid fantasy reader, this author was not known to me and despite the handful of glowing reviews, which can always be chalked up to over-enthusiastic fans of an author, I didn't set my hopes too high. I'm also very cynical now of the celebrity author endorsements, which are misleading even at the best of times (coupled in this case with the endorsement being supplied by Trudi Canavan, whose novels are not amongst those I personally rate very highly in the genre) and I wasn't expecting a great deal.

However, despite a very slow start and a style that I didn't find immediately enjoyable, there's a lot to recommend about `The Killing Moon'. It's the most unique novel I've read since `Under Heaven' by Guy Gavriel Kay. The story wasn't predictable and although I think it could have been plotted better to entice readers unfamiliar with the author, I would say that if you stick with it you'll eventually find it rewarding.

I wouldn't describe this as epic fantasy, but the story is memorable and offers something different from the usual fantasy fare. Recommended.
