Dark Horse bringing Spanish fantasy series “Cycle of the Red Moon” to shops next May
Dark Horse are bringing some international fantasy to American shops next year, as they will publish the English translation of the Spanish series The Cycle of the Red Moon. The first volume-- subtitled The Harvest of Samhein-- sees a dozen teenagers from all over the world suddenly pulled into a fantasy realm, where they discover inborn magical abilities. Naturally, an ancient evil arises and they have to band together to defeat it, and considering this is a whole trilogy, I’ve no doubt the journey will be rather epic.
What’s even cooler is that Dark Horse will also be publishing the book in its original Spanish, so readers can pick which version they prefer to read. Check out the details below.
