    1 thought on “Shadow Star

    1. I love this whole series! I think this book draws nicely off the other two and the story is wrapped up very nicely.

    2. d this is a positive masterclass in how to take a really hackneyed idea and make it feel completely new. Structurally, I think this is the weakest of the three. But that's inevitable when you get to the third part of a trilogy (just ask Philip Pullman!) There are an awful lot of loose ends to tie up, and, not content with that, they decide to add an entire massive backstory that was strictly unnecessary (I think that pretty much the whole thing could have been resolved without needing the Khory [...]

    3. The only thing that kept this book from getting a 5-star review in my opinion is Claremont's love of the phrase "beat a tattoo" and the fact that--in an effort to emphasize the drama--every creature or race spoken of is "much more dangerous than it looks." If we are to believe Claremont's depiction of the world of Willow, one wonders how any life could evolve in such a deceptively perilous environment.Nonetheless, this is a good close to a fun series, and a worthwhile epilogue to Willow.

    4. Fantastic end to the series - it all culminates to a great ending, built up from the details drawn out through the series. I love the descriptiveness and all of the intertwining stories. These fantasy series require some memory skills but overall, worth it!I love all the characters but Thorn really resonates, he is so detailed and true to his nature through the story. The brownies provide great humour and Luc-Jon is a wonderful love interest. All in all, worth your time.

    5. Best of the trilogy. I was interested all the way through. The author's writing style is still a little confusing. There was on part that I reread 3 or 4 times and I still don't know how something happened. Other than the little bit of confusion I really enjoyed the end of the Shadow War novels.

    6. everyone downs on this book/series as much as the movie. I loved the movie it brought me fantasy on TV/Movie Screen. While not great it filed in more of the world of Willow.

    7. This was the best of the series by far. Great job of pulling all the details of the story together and tying up the loose ends. Long live the dragons.

    8. Horrible! It was the worst ending they could have possibly thought of. It was silly, not a very good twist, and the concept was just ludicrous. I don't know, maybe people liked it, I just didn't at all. I felt the characters became dull, the focus was on all the wrong things, and then the villain seemed awkwardly powerful only to find out at the end that there was not a very good or for that matter not even a very clear motive for the whole thing. It kind of makes you wonder why bother with the [...]

    9. One of the craziest and most imaginative fantasies I've ever read. A truly magical book.In this third volume of the Shadow War Chronicles, Lucas and Claremont pull out all the stops. All of the elements of the two previous installments plus a whole slew of new ones come into play, building to a truly epic climax -- not the usual epic fantasy mega-battle, but a journey through time & space that connects the whole thing to the movie, "Willow" (1988), and ties all the complex strands of the tri [...]

    10. If you look up this series you will find three books listed; Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn and Shadow Star. It should also include the movie adaptation of "Willow" as the first book, because the trilogy is based on Elora Danan, the baby Willow saved in the movie. "Willow" was a quick, fun read, as movie adaptations should be. "Shadow Moon" was harder to get through. I wouldn't rate it more than a three. "Shadow Star" really made the series take off. The way that Elora finds and grows into the powers [...]

    11. I received the book for free through First Reads. The whole series was very excellent. I enjoyed the endingI am so glad that Elora came back to herself. I thought she had to experience them all, and that was what was going on. I was glad to see how the dragons returned, but I wish there was a bit more detail on all the sovereigns going back to their kingdoms after being unfrozen. But the details were awesome, the plot was great, and all the characters were wonderful. I do recommend these series [...]

    12. got up to page 268, before I really realized I didnt care anymore. you could say i had high expectations for many reasons, but my rating is justified. there where a couple confusing moments do to those sentences not being well written. some filler. most of the book is recap, with a small amount of new situations happening, so this could be a stand alone though youd be missing out on the brilliantly imaginative memorable way they where written the first time.

    13. Finally, an ending to the great story that began from "willow". After reading this last installment, I was left refreshed. This story has a great conclusion, and very well could have continued for many more books.

    14. I started this book but didn't finish. Maybe because I read the first two back to back within 2 weeks. By the time I got to the third one, I was a bit "fantasy/science fictioned" out.

    15. So I read the third book after all and it was okay. It was better than the second but not great. I did not care for the ending, but what can you do?

    16. I loved "Shadow Moon", but detested "Shadow Dawn" so much that I couldn't bear to read the third installment. I think enough time has passed that I can finally give "Shadow Star" a try.

    17. Read these three books years ago, but remembered really liking them and being bummed that there were only three. Alos, surprised when i realised that the movie Willow was a part of this.

    18. Picks up right where the second book left off. Some good battle scenes, and a surprising turn towards the end, but the end is as good as Claremont endings get.
