“If they’re making fantasy adventure much better than this, I don’t know about it.” —Science Fiction Chronicle

“Fans of Hawk and Fisher will particularly enjoy the revelations about the deadly duo’s background, and as always Green provides plenty of spectacular violence and some spectacular wonders.” —Locus

He was a prince, second in line to the throne. She was a princess, a pawn for her father's manipulation. They met during the Blue Moon, a time when evil rules and demons dance in the forest. The humans fled to the heart of the Darkwood where they fought the Demon Prince. They ultimately triumphed but the cost in lives and devastated land is astronomical.

Prince Rubert and Princess Julla, weary from the war, travel to the Southern city-state of Haven, a cesspool of criminal activity. They hide their royal background and become Hawk and Fisher, captains in the local police force. They successfully fought against crime for a dozen years, but the forest calls out to them when someone assassinates the monarch causing the people to slide into chaos. They return to the forest as Hawk and Fisher in order to uncover the identity of the king's killer and defeat the latest threat to the well being of their people.

Roc has reprinted the famous fantasy classic BEYOND THE BLUE MOON so that a new generation of fans can enjoy the action and adventure of a great sword and sorcery tale. What makes this novel stand out among its numerous peers is the lead charcaters whose love and commitment to one another in the midst of epic escapades keeps them grounded in humanity. Simon R. Green's work still holds up as a strong relationship fantasy saga.

When I first heard of a sequel to BLUE MOON RISING, I was thrilled, and I bought the first copy I could get my hands on. Now that I've read it ... I'm a little disappointed, but I'll probably read it again because of my love for the first book.
This (final?) installment of the Hawk and Fisher series starts out in the city of Haven much like the previous stories. And indeed, we see a lot of familiar references in BEYOND THE BLUE MOON. The Arthurian symbolism is so thick you could cut it with a knife, but there are also familiar characters from and references to other Green books like BLOOD AND HONOR and SHADOWS FALL. It was nice to see the Seneschal again, and to hear that Viktor and Catriona got married.
Unfortunately, the characters, old and new, are never fully developed and their motives are always unclear. This is in part to support the sense of mystery surrounding the murder investigation, but if you haven't figured out the killer by the middle of the book, you haven't been paying attention. The plot in general is rushed, with a feeling of anticlimax at the end.
Despite the book's many flaws, I still enjoyed it. I will probably read it again. I just don't feel that it measured up to the standards of the original BLUE MOON. I would almost rather have seen this story broken up into novellas like those featured in GUARDS OF HAVEN and SWORDS OF HAVEN. If you're looking for closure in this series, definitely read this book. If you've never read Simon Green's work before, don't start with this one.

I read the Hawk and Fisher books before I ever knew "Blue Moon Rising" existed, I found it in a used book store and felt like I struck gold. These books are witty, fun, well written, and thouroughly enjoyable, (and it must be said that bad guys getting thier just deserts is always a good thing even if it is just fiction.) Beyond the Blue Moon was not quite as good as Blue Moon Rising, but that's rather like saying that a T-bone isn't as good as a ribeye steak. I think Mr. Green has lots of room to work with Hawk and Fisher, I don't see those two settled down on a little backwater farmstead raising kids and chickens.

Of the many characters Simon Green has created, Hawk & Fisher are my favorites. I absolutely love them! Their cynical humor and matter-of-fact ruthlessness as they face overwhelming odds (all the time) are everything I enjoy in sci-fi/fantasy. If you love the snarky humor of Marvel's comic heroes, get ALL the Hawk & Fisher stories, and read them in order.

There is really nothing else out there like this except for Green's own Eddie Drood, and Eddie's a bit too angsty for me. His girlfriend Molly and her sisters are Fisher's equivalents, to give you some idea of characterization. It's always fun when the women are more blood-thirsty than the men!

But in this case, the only thing that did not please me about "Beyond the Blue Moon" was that it ended. I've heard a lot of praise for "Blue moon Rising", the prequel to the Hawk and Fisher series, but I came upon that book only shortly before "Beyond the Blue Moon". My Hawk and Fisher were in Haven and this seemed like a truly worthy send up of the two dealiest individuals in fantasy writing. My only regret is that Green isn't filling in a few more blanks in the lives of Hawk and Fisher in Haven. I honestly can't get enough of them.

I have always enjoyed Hawk and Fisher as a mix of humor and action. Simon Green writes the kind of entertaining characters I can enjoy, put down when I need to , and pick up when I can. Thoroughly entertaining.

Was a little ragged in some of the character development, but a great "read". It did help to have read "Blue Moon", but the plot can stand alone. Green is always wonderfully tongue-in-cheek with his Hawk and Fischer characters. I will certainly read it again.
