    Life and Times of Wyl Thirsk...

    Simply outstanding. I could never put it down. Being deployed overseas, its hard to find a good read. The character development was simply amazing, I found myself drawn into each character, Fiona can embue so much detail in just a few words. The book continously surpises you at every turn.

    One of the Best!!

    I have been reading fantasy for over 40 years and this series is among my top 10 of all time. Rarely do you find an author that appears to have it all and Fiona McIntosh appears to be one of the few. A true word smith with great chatacterization and description without being too lengthy in the process. I was moved from tears of sorrow to almost uncontrollable anger too tears of joy and back again with such care and fluidity, that I literaly could not put these books down. Do yourself a huge favor and wrap your eyes around these jeweles and you will never, ever regret it.

    fabulous epic fantasy

    Though he wishes he could go back to before when he was a general in the Morgravian army, Wyl Thirsk courageously continues to live with his ¿gift¿ of life granted to him by the now late Myrren the witch. Myrren¿s ¿gift¿ is a spell that propels his spirit to occupy the body of anyone who murders him. --- Currently Wyl resides in the body of his sister Ylena while he continues his quest to kill King Celimus of Morgravia with a secondary objective to thwart the monarch¿s intention to marry Queen Valentyna of neighboring Briavel. Meanwhile Myrren¿s late father Elysius before turning to dust ¿assigned¿ young Fynch ¿mentored¿ by Knave the dog to annihilate the malevolent magician Rashlyn. These two quests will soon link up leaving a depressed Wyl and unconfident Fynch in mortal danger from two evil abominations, but failure leaves their countrymen at risk. --- BRIDGE OF SOULS, the final bodysnatching tale in the Quickening trilogy (see MYRREN'S GIFT and BLOOD AND MEMORY) is a fabulous epic fantasy that grips fans of Fiona McIntosh from the moment the boy magician Fynch and Knave communicate. The story line never slows until the final confrontation between good and evil. Though it is better to have read the previous tales to understand how things progressed to the bridge of no return, epic fantasy readers will appreciate the action-packed climax as Wyl tries to save the people of his nation and those of the neighboring country as well as the woman he loves in a desperate final gamut. --- Harriet Klausner
