A dark moon is rising. A perfect black circle, barely visible in the night sky, the dark moon casts its void over the wind-scorched moor, over the soaring mass of a great limestone hill, and over the town that cowers in its shadow. The dark moon is the absence of moon before the slender silver crescent of the new moon appears again and people can breathe a little easier. The month is March, and the night is clear and cold, black as pitch.

What I love most about this audiobook is the brilliant narration - she brings this book to life. The story is interesting if a little dystopian & I was left wondering what would go on to happen to the characters after the book had ended. I've listened to this a few times now, even though I know the ending & I still find something new in it. Recommended if you can suspend belief & just go with the unusual story.
