My initial review was not accepted despite nothing negative nor out of bound regarding the guidelines. Very strange... I bought this despite not understanding Spanish because I was so swayed by the artwork! Anyway, this is a gorgeous item that was well packaged. Communication from the seller was fantastic! Many thanks~
Visually stunning, as you would expect another collection of beautiful art pieces from Luis Royo, however, the story to go with it takes some reading to process. I think it has been poorly translated and this takes from some of the meaning that he was trying to convey in his mother tongue. The storyline is a little jumpy, so 4 stars for the artwork, 2 for the prose... you do the math.
Some folk say he can't write well... with this creation I would disagree.
You don't need an author of verbal genius when you have an "okay" writer who is also a Master Artist of Dark Fantasy Art. The two - albeit unbalanced - talents work well together within this book: Words ignite the image; the image evokes a powerful message; and that message ignite's the mind, imagination and desires of the reader.
"Dead Moon" invites the reader's imagination to feed from its artwork and bring the very opposites within their subconscious to awaken with life.
