Beyond the Blue Moon

Finished March 20
Beyond the Blue Moon (1 of  3) by Simon R. Green, adapted for Graphic Audio by Timothy Lynch, directed by Terence Aselford

I've never listened to a Graphic Audio before and wasn't sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed it. The acting and the sounds brought the story to life, as if it were a movie. I haven't read this series, and this is the fourth book in the Forest Kingdom Saga, but I found that the characters and settings were described in such a way that I didn't feel that I needed to have read the previous books.
Hawk and Fisher are a team of guards in the kingdom of Haven. They are honest and determined, and have many skills and work well as a team as they know each other so well.
But as we quickly find out, their life in Haven has been a temporary escape from their home in the Forest Kingdom, and when a messenger arrives to tell them of King Harald's death by means unknown, they know they must return and discover who is behind his death. The couple has been hiding behind their identities as Hawk and Fisher, and are reluctant to reveal their true selves, so the messenger agrees to keep their secret as they do the work they have become very good at.
This is a rollicking adventure story, with love, class struggles, rampant crime, and a fair bit of violence, but with Hawk and Fisher on the side of good, it is a very enjoyable read.
I will definitely be interested in more graphic audio books!
