A great read for fans of Kaye's more famous "The Far Pavilions." Less sweeping in nature, Shadow of the Moon is perhaps more evenly paced, and as in Pavilions, Kaye employs a mixture of romance, adventure, and history. Kaye was born in India and has a real love for the country and its people, but is also a product of her time, and her trumpeting of British imperial righteousness will sound false to modern readers. As a student of post-colonial history, I found this annoying, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this page-turning romance-adventure. Enjoy it for what it is- romanticism based on the memoirs of a daughter of colonists, and a wonderfully good read full of danger, passion, and heroism.
