The Dark Moon is a true definition of what necessary evil is. Dell is visited by so much evil which is necessary for the text’s development. She is faced with a lot of adversities, some of which she maneuvers through by the help of other characters, Jay being the greatest of them all. The novel addresses major thematic concerns including love, poor governance, education, tradition and maxism among many others. The Dark Moon highlights an important aspect of colour. The text weighs the black and white people on the same scale and looks at them as equals, just as it should be. As the book goes on and on, it becomes even more interesting with humour, sarcasm, dilemma, irony and ends in suspense.
