Publisher's Summary

The Black Moon is the fifth novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.
Cornwall, 1794. The birth of a son to Elizabeth and George Warleggan serves only to accentuate the rift between the Poldark and Warleggan families. And when Morwenna Chynoweth, now governess to Elizabeth's eldest son, grows to love Drake Carne, Demelza's brother, the enduring rivalry between George and Ross finds a new focus for bitter enmity and conflict.

A book between books

This book jumps almost a year from the last book and has some new characters. Ross is maturing as is Delmelsa although we don't get to see much of her in this book. The French Revolution is a big theme in this book but the book falls almost into a romance novel. Nice, but not as good as the first few books. Almost a joiner between books and there is only good for Ross as he regains lost ground from the last few years. Not a bad book, but not the best.

Poldark's story

Where does The Black Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've listened to the previous books in the series and enjoyed them all. This book was equally as good.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good old fashioned Cornish tale

Excellent in every way.

The narrator sounds so like the TV series characters that the book is a rare visual treat. Although George Warleggan really sounds like Stuey from Family Guy.

Great story, well told.

The saga continues

Wonderful! Took a little time to get into but soon had me hooked. The ending has me looking forward to the saga continuing. The narration is as artful as the previous instalments of the Poldark books, the character voices bringing the story to life as before. Recommended for anyone who has enjoyed the previous Poldark stories. I only gave four stars because it's a little slow at times with the telling of historical details I felt irrelevant to the lives of the characters but that's not to be a great deterrent. I'm straight onto the next installment!
