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.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "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.

    "Fantastic as always"

    Super story as always and Oliver is a great reader but he should take advice from a native Frenchie for pronunciation! Never mind that though, it's nothing compared with his great reading of a brilliant story
