Although I didn’t dislike this book it didn’t have me gripped to the point I couldn’t put it down.
In an authors note at the start of the book Winston informs us of quite a big gap between writing the 4th & 5th Poldark novels BUT you wouldn’t know this by reading them. THE BLACK MOON carries on right where Warleggan ended.
It is always nice to be living the lives of the Poldarks. Although I found this installment to be less about Ross and Demelza and more about the people surrounding them, lots of new characters are introduced to us whom we fall in love with and lots of stories are started, added to or ended. There are also the return of many well known characters, one of which our dislike grows!
I can’t wait to get stuck into the 6th instalment, THE FOUR SWANS, to see where our characters lead us next.
