Comments Blue Moon Rising

  • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    This book is hilarious, fast-paced, and intensely well-written.It's quite long, at just under 500 pages, and there is so much going on. Yet the storytelling is so involving that you don't have time to be bored. Although this is definitely a fantasy book, it also is a story about an everyday type of hero, even a reluctant hero. Rupert is a man who was raised to live in his brother's shadow. He is the unwanted second son of the Forest Land Kingdom. His father deliberately did not encourage a close [...]

    I saw this book in the bookstore a couple of years ago and I thought it would not only be something I wanted to read, but something my two younger sisters would maybe like too. So, for Christmas 2011, I bought several books for both of them and dallied out which one's I thought most fitting for their particular tastes - which is similar, but my youngest sister prefers a little humor in her fantasy while the older prefers a little more apparent literacy. But then I read some reviews and I started [...]

    Reading Blue Moon Rising is like watching a group of bored gamers play Dungeons and Dragons. The character reactions are over-the-top, the vernacular is modern and the overall tone is light in spite of an approaching demon-fueled apocalypse. So a princess punches out a lady in waiting over a minor spat, our hero accepts suicidal quests because that's just what heroes do and the local nobles conspire to bring down the king, a plan which ignores the existential threat of the demon army on their do [...]


  • Jason

    5 Stars I loved the story, the characters, the writing, the author, and the world.A great fantasy adventure with fun characters and humor.


  • Chris

    I'd hoped to keep my little book reviews to a paragraph or two, maybe less, but this one, fittingly my first, is special, so it gets some extra time during which I can hopefully convince you to pick it up and give it a try.Throughout my life, my dad has always maintained an impressive little library of everything from history and politics to best-sellers and sci-fi, so I've always had fond memories of books in general. They lined the walls in the room where I spent most of my teenage years, and [...]

    5/1/2017I love this book a lot. It's easily my favourite epic fantasy book. And I think I love it as much as I do because the world building is trickled out throughout the course of the story, rather than dumped in right at the beginning. (Yes, Mistborn, I'm looking at you and your TWO HUNDRED FREAKING PAGES OF SET UP)You get a little bit of history about the Darkwood when Rupert and the Unicorn set out. You get a bit about the Forest Kingdom as Rupert fills Julia and the Dragon in on their way [...]

    How long have MLE and I been friends…oh like forever. I got this book to read on the flight to Paris, our French class school trip back in 1996. Don’t let the publication fool you, it’s a reprint. Well I finished it, then handed off to Emily then she finished it. Yeah, that’s right. We were just that awesome.


  • ☆ ĄňŊǡƂėƮĦ ☆ ŞŧŎŋė

    this is a very good book. i read it awhile ago when i didn't have an account so i am trying to see if i remember it. it has a very strong female character, a great plot and ending, and as well as humor. i will probably reread and write a better review.


  • Joey

    This book is one of my favorites and why I give Simon R Green a go at least until his ongoing series get plagued with repetition. But this was before all that. It's a near perfect Dark Fantasy, full of gallows humor, I'd say it would fit a near perfect "Dungeon Punk" mentality with the characters being snarky with each other and Green playing with old fantasy tropes. And when I say it's darkGreen loves horror. Sneaky, evil, horror. It's not quite say as nasty as some books, but with a near perfe [...]


  • Alina

    I read this when I was in my early teens, and again in high school, and again in college, and again (you get the point). Kitchy fantasy cliches aside (and there are plenty in this book) it's a really well-written and compelling story. I always miss it when I'm finished. The standard fantasy foundation (dragon/prince/spunky princess) is done well enough that it always either adds to- or provides welcome relief from what is a gripping, scary, fun and sometimes sad story. Even if you're not a huge [...]


  • Ðawn

    DNF @ 13%No rating.Not my thing. I don't care for the writing style at all. There is no stream of consciousness No seeing what's inside the charcters heads.The pace is WAAAAY too fast. with little details.Characters are flat.Too fantasticalTo me this reads like a childrens story. Everything told and not shown. It appears the author was going for comedy and I found it cute but not funny.Would make a good cartoon.


  • Evelyn

    I picked up this book at random and was very pleasantly surprised. It's a very complex story where the good guys aren't always good adn the bad guys have a lot of good reasons for being bad. I found it a lot more realistic (and therefore dark) than the traditional fantasy fiction, and a lot more witty and fun to read, too. Joss Whedon meets Peter Beagle.


  • Janice

    I liked, and I didn't like, hence the 3 star rating. It took a long time for the characters to grow on me and I didn't really become invested in the story until then. My favourite character was Unicorn followed by Julia.


  • Josiphine/Tessa

    3.5Pretty good! Very fun to read. My biggest problem was that it was too long and the POV sometimes changed within paragraphs.


  • Travis

    Blue Moon Rising by Simon R. Green- This is the first book of a series of stand-alone novels under the title of Forest Kingdom. However, each book is an entirely new story with different characters. The second book is called Blood and Honour and the third book is called Down Among the Dead. The two main protagonists are also the main characters in Simon R. Green's Hawk and Fisher series (No Haven for the Guilty, Devil Take the Hindmost, The God Killer, Vengeance for a Lonely Man, Guard Against D [...]


  • Fränze

    Der Anfang hat mir richtig gut gefallen und ich musste das ein oder andere Mal wirklich schmunzeln. Doch irgendwann schlug die Stimmung des Buches komplett um und es wurde immer düsterer. Von dem anfänglichen Humor blieb bald nichts mehr übrig und man hatte einen relativ durchschnittlichen Fantasyroman vor sich, der mich weder durch seine Figuren, noch durch die Handlung so hundertprozentig überzeugen konnte. Wirklich schade - nach den ersten 100 Seiten dachte ich echt, dass es mal etwas neu [...]


  • JennaL

    Blue Moon Rising and Beyond the Blue Moon were the first of Simon Green's book about the husband & wife team of Hawk & Fisher I read - as well as just the first of his books I read in general. And they are what got me hooked. The Reasons to Read The Series? Easy-Peasy# A real husband & wife duo. Both characters are strong in their own rights - but together they are amazing. SG has created one of the best pairings I've found, and I wish to hell he'd write more. They aren't perfect, bu [...]


  • Echo

    I wouldn't call Green's books outright comedic fantasy, because they're not, but he does have a wonderful kind of wit and his books don't take themselves too seriously. Then again, if you've read the book summary, you can probably tell. A princess with a mean left hook? Obviously not your traditional fantasy. I actually read the books out of order, but I would never change that, because I already knew Julia's character from previous books. When I finally picked up this book and met her character [...]


  • Ithlilian

    Blue Moon Rising starts out as a stereotypical knee slapping style story as it goes though everything the jacket mentions. There is a sarcastic unicorn, wise dragon, and feisty princess. Not to mention the dark woods and demons. After the first 100 pages though, the story completely changes. What you thought was going to be simple quest based fantasy becomes character driven, and thoroughly entertaining. We get intrigue at the castle and multiple traitors, as well as funny goblins and an angry p [...]


  • Shane Moore

    At first this seemed like a humorous take on the most clich�� of Fantasy tropes. I liked it a lot. A Prince is sent off to slay a dragon, mostly in hopes that he will get killed and remove himself from the line of Royal succession. He rides a sarcastic and cowardly unicorn, and faces danger with wit and practicality. Within a few chapters, the humor has become more sparse. The fighting is increasingly detailed and more gory. Things get serious. The story never stops flirting with stereotypes [...]

    This was the first book of Mr. Green's I picked up, way back in High School. Inside there was a small forward explaining what this book was about it said: " In those days there were heroes and villains, and darkness walked the earth. There were dragons to be slain captured Princesses to be saved, and mighty deeds were accomplished by knights in shining armor. Many tales are told of that time, tales of steadfast bravery and derring-do. This isn't one of them."I was hooked! Since reading that firs [...]


  • Kim Luu

    This is the first book I ever read by Simon Green and it made me a fan. I laughed out loud at the opening of a handsome young prince heading out for adventure to prove himself. The catch is that his horse is a unicorn since he's still a virgin. The horse is mouthy and preachy but the prince is stuck with him. His travails are made worse when the beautiful princess he plans to rescue wants nothing to do with him as she's perfectly happy being a non princess. Simon writes very well and some of his [...]


  • MarsianMan

    Great book, much better than the Nightside series. There is nothing special about the main character, who is the second son and Prince of a realms that has no need for him. He is sent a Quest that he is either supposed to die on or serve as his exile. The beginning of this book made me think it was going to be over-the-top Terry Pratchett style, but after the debacle of saving the dragon from the princess, it got a lot better. I really got to like the main character. I guess he strikes a chord w [...]


  • Samantha wickedshizuku Tolleson

    I had never heard of this series until I had stumbled across it on . It has been fairly amusing adventure that I enjoyed thoroughly. I thought that the princess was hysterical, and her plight was very complex. I most certainly wasn't expecting a dragon in the mix of things. The princes and king are a riot, though I doesn't seem a very traditional outlook on court intrigue. The demon prince, who is the enemy, doesn't seem to be the worst big baddie; but I think he will play a much bigger part in [...]


  • Anna

    If I could pick only 10 books to read for the rest of my life, this would be one of them.I've worn out 4 paperback copies of "Blue Moon Rising", and have read it at least thirty times. A must read!


  • Sydney

    I had to buy this book just because of the opening line. And it was completely worth it. It's fantasy, but it's also a story that mocks fantasy. Plus there's a talking unicorn. What more could you ask for?


  • Eh?Eh!

    cheesy (sometimes groan-worthy) humor, characters go off on very long expository statements, I might only love this because it was terrific when I was young


  • Sarah Garner

    On the whole an entertaining read but a bit of a mission to read. I didn't quite finish it but I did enjoy it as it was funny in places.


  • Isaac

    Possibly my favorite book ever, except for all the other ones I like a lot. Good character development and a great fantasy universe to immerse yourself in.


  • Stephanie

      I read the first 200 or so pages of this while on a trip, then waited nearly 3 weeks to finish reading it. All told, I think I preferred the first 200 pages the most and therefore sped joyfully through those, though there were still some very good moments scattered throughout the rest of the book. Despite the threat of the Darkwood, for some reason, I had the most fun reading the “short story” of Rupert saving Julia from the dragon and their initial time back at the palace.  Overall, t [...]
