If you enjoy adventure in an exotic fantasy world, Black Moon: Book 2 of The Chronicles of Tucker Littlefield by Tegon Maus is for you. It continues the tale of an unlikely hero who is called to attend an important ceremony in the outlands, home to nine distinctive and contentious tribes known collectively as the Kindred. A shocking turn of events occurs which sparks chaos and fighting among the tribes. The outgoing leader is murdered and evidence points to the incoming leader who is from another tribe. When the dead leader’s powerful spear responds to Tucker, he is appointed interim leader, asked to judge the guilt of the accused, and sent on a dangerous journey. Tucker’s life and all-out war among the Kindred hang in the balance.

In Black Moon, Tegon Maus delivers a riveting story that blends adventure, action, and suspense with a quirky sense of humor in a protagonist who is amazingly brave for a man who doesn’t fit the typical hero mold. The story unfolds at a good pace. Told in Tucker’s own words, the narrative is descriptive in more ways than one. We not only know what Tucker sees, smells, and tastes, but we know his most private thoughts, emotions, and dreams. The landscape and the life forms are vividly portrayed as are some of the incidents of conflict and violence. Even through those, I found Tucker’s sense of humor winning, though it was best when he traded barbs with his wife. Tucker’s humor has made me want to read Book 1 and I look forward to Book 3.
