From two of the greatest imaginations of our time comes a magnificent novel of adventure and magic...SHADOW MOON: First in the Chronicles of the Shadow
The genius of Star Wars(r) creator George Lucas and the vision of Chris Claremont, the author of the phenomenally bestselling The Uncanny
X-Men adventures, merge in what must be the fantasy event of the year.
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.
George Lucas reshaped filmmaking in the '70s and '80s with his Star Wars and Indiana Jones films. When Bantam Books asked Lucas if he had any stories he would like to develop as novels rather than as films, Lucas turned to his 1988 fantasy film, Willow.
"When I wrote the story for Willow, I began with the pre-story," Lucas said, "but the full story was yet to be told."
Now, Lucas's vision is being fulfilled with the talented help of Chris Claremont. Having previously taken the reins of what was for a decade the bestselling comic in the western hemisphere (The Uncanny X-Men) Claremont assumes the reponsibility of foster parent to Lucas's creation.
On sale in hardcover now, and available on BDD Audio Cassette as well, SHADOW MOON is a momentous new adventure for readers looking to spend part of this
summer in a fantastic world. SHADOW MOON is one of Bantam Spectra's most exciting publishing events in 1995, the year we celebrate our 10th Anniversary as the premiere publishing imprint of books of speculative fiction.

What a waste of good trees.horrible book just couldn't get into it.
This is truly one of the worst books written of all time. "The genius of George Lucas" is more likely a spastic dog spilling a variety of vomit into the realm known as the written page. Good gosh, why did I ever read the second one in some hope that this series would save itself if I continued?
The plot bounces around and is difficult to follow, the text is cheap and pulp, the content leaves the illusion of reality and goes far beyond something enjoyable into something painful. This should have been displayed as a warning of what was coming in his future movies...
Matter of fact, the best thing about this series is the great work that went into the cover, utterly validating the phrase: "You can't judge a book buy it's cover."
