Forest Kingdom Saga
Blue Moon Rising (1 of 3)

by Simon R. Green
Jul 1, 2009
5 Hours
All Ages
Rupert didn't especially want to be a prince. And he certainly never asked to be the second son of a royal line that really didn't need a spare. So he was sent out to slay a dragon and prove himself-a quest straight out of legend. But he also discovered the kinds of things legends tend to leave out, as well as the usual demons, goblins, the dreaded Night Witch-and even worse terrors hidden in the shadows of Darkwood.

Rupert did find a fiery dragon-and a beautiful princess to rescue. But the dragon turned out to be a better friend than anyone back at the castle and with the evil of Darkwood spreading, Rupert was going to need all the friends he could get.

Engaging! by Vanessa (Posted on 8/8/2018)
Like a cross between Eragon and Shrek. The voices and characters make this story engaging, and it pulls you in deeper and deeper. Great story!
Enjoyed! by Travis (Posted on 11/14/2017)
Enjoyed this start. The Unicorn was great. GA does a great job in adapting the story into a movie for your mind. All the voice acting was spot on and Terence Aselford continues to be my favorite narrator for fantasy genre audio.
Great Start by ryan (Posted on 9/11/2016)
Alright I will admit, i kind of thought this would be a simple run of the mill fantasy story but the humor totally did it for me. But even with the lightheartedness of the characters i never felt that it was over the top and the humor really did help land the more touching moments all the more. Like even though the witch was only in very little of the story i really did feel for her and her story was really touching.

Forest Kingdom Saga: Blue Moon Rising (1 of 3) by John (Posted on 4/1/2015)
This Graphic Audio set was my first full experience. I had sampled the free downloads and decided that I wanted more. I purchased all 3 volumes of Blue Moon Rising at the same time and I couldn't get enough of it! The story is amazing. A second son Prince with no hope fro the throne saves the world. Amazing! Do yourself a favor and listen to this story and don't stop with this set. Continue on with the Forest Kingdom Saga. I'm on the last volume of the saga right now and I want more!

excellent book
Fantastic Production by Michelle (Posted on 11/20/2014)
This has been one of my favorite books ever since it came out in the early 90s. It was wonderful to hear it dramatized. I think the production team and the voice actors did an excellent job on it. I am still as in love with this book as I was when I was ten...
A little repetitious by Mary Jo (Posted on 10/7/2014)
This is a good story. Kinda funny. It seems geared for a young audience. Some things are very funny the first or second time heard. But they get old with the repetition.
Review by Jon (Posted on 8/12/2014)
love this series as a book but its way better in GA!
really enjoyed the series by Tara Conklin (Posted on 7/24/2014)
I've never really been into these types of stories. Magic, demons, sword fights and whatnot but I liked the heck out of these stores. There was a lot of humor and actions and I didn't have a problem keeping interested in the story line. The characters were well done and the actors did an amazing job bringing them to life. I'm hooked on Graphic Audio.
Forest Kingdom Saga Blue Moon Rising by Eric (Posted on 10/10/2013)
Some likes and dislikes with this one. First, I really did like the story. It was a good fantasy plot with some court intrigue and good battles. It was good through all 3 parts and well acted.

I wasn't impressed with Terence Aselford as a narrator...which surprised me, since I think he does a great job as a voice actor in other titles.

I was a bit disappointed in the humor drying up early in the story. The first part of the adventure contains some Pythonesque banter and situations that I really enjoyed. But soon, the humor is lost and the story becomes more of a standard drama. I was surprised after one review says that the Python humor is very heavy. That only lasts for the first third of the first part before turning to strictly drama. I have no idea where the other reviewer got the idea that it's 99% humor. It's more like 95% drama with a bit of humor. It's not bad. I did enjoy it. But, I had hoped for a more tongue in cheek telling of the story....perhaps more akin to the Nuclear Bombshell series...my favorite of all GA productions.

Nevertheless, because I did enjoy the story, I plan to buy the followup FKS installments and find out what happens next.
After five action-packed hours, listeners will be eager for the other two parts of this series. by AudioFile Magazine (Posted on 8/19/2013)
Prince Rupert, second son of the king, is sent on a fool's errand by his father in hopes he won’t return. But Rupert, with his sassy unicorn steed, is more resourceful than expected and survives his journey through the infamous Darkwood. BLUE MOON RISING turns this genre on its head—we learn of the softer side of the Night Witch and meet a dragon more interested in butterflies than blood. Yet this story is not quite for children either. Battle scenes erupt in bloody fury with GraphicAudio's signature cinematic sound effects and music. A well-rounded cast complements Terence Aselford’s engaging narration. After five action-packed hours, listeners will be eager for the other two parts of this series.

Review by Daniel Morrow (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I was truly surprised by just how entertaining this one was, a perfect mix of humor, intrigue and action as well as superb voice acting. My only woe is that there is only one and I'm dying for the next installment.
Review by Mitchell Warren (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Iary good mix of humer, action and light hints of romance. Over all not a bad lisen.
Review by Darrin Hert (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I have listened to several of GA's audio books. The production in this set (pt's 1-3) is superb. The story is a good mix of humor and fantasy action without being corny. Couldn't wait for the work days to end...to get to the car for the next listen. I might have even sat in the garage for several minutes after getting home to catch another page or two! Excellent entertainment! Good job GA!

G.A is the Best , simply Fantastic

but this story is not.

The Good: Great Job by G.A as Always they are Superb with the work they do.

The Bad: Very Very Heavy Monty Python Style Humor, Its hard to take the Story serious when its 99% humor, its actually hard to enjoy it at all, which is a shame considering it has some interesting Characters and what could be a good story, but its ruined by the humor. Its like this story was written for Children?? a Unicorn that urinates when it frightened?? funny the 1st time but after listening to 10+ hours and hearing it over and over its not funny any more. The Main Female is Unlikable and obnoxious to the point you hope she gets killed off , but she doesn't unfortunately.

The Story tried to put in a few serious moments but its hard to take it serious at all when the serious parts of the story are only about 1% of the whole story itself. The Humor is so heavy at all times when the story tries to be serious you really don't care.

I cant figure out why so many people gave this a good review?? unless they like listening to Children's stories with obnoxious characters.
