    Lord of the Isles Series

    These books are great. They take you into many different realms. The stories also keep you on the edge of your seat. They are well written and the way the story follows each of the characters trails and tribulations is incredible. I recommend all the books starting at the beginning if you want to read a series that¿s the way to go 1-whatever.

    FANTASY AND SCI FI FANS, GET IN LINE!

    Fantasy and sci fi fans get in line - Paul Michael gives a dynamite reading of the fifth in David Drake's popular series charting the mishaps and adventures of two young brother and sister pairs. As many learned in 'Lord of the Isles,' Garric and Sharina and Cashel and Ilna have left the relatively safe environs of a small town to embark upon a trek to the capital. Their hope is to reunite the island kingdoms of the Isles. Now, we learn that Garric and his band have reached the island city of Carcosa. Garric's rule is thwarted by giant insects to say nothing of unimaginable enemies. Forces beyond their knowledge appear to be united against the foursome. Ilna is sent to investigate a mysterious impediment to shipping, while Cashel is magically thrust into another world and Sharina relegated to one more eerie place. They've much to overcome which provides excitement and action aplenty for listeners.

    Fine fantasy

    Prince Garric and his retinue, which besides trusted humans includes the ghost of the great King Carus inside his head, crossed the island of Haft to reach the ancient capital of the Old Kingdom Carcosa. Garric plans to unite the people living on the numerous islands that make up the Isles. Garric¿s fiancée Liane works closely with him as they try to bring the competing, often hostile, religious groups under his rule.<P> Meanwhile, unknown powers trying to abort Garric¿s efforts attack his loyal supporters. Upon being inexplicably transported to a strange deadly land, Garric¿s best friend Cashel and royal sister Sharina struggle to survive. Cashel¿s sister, the witch Ilna and her beloved Chalcus must find a way to overcome a bizarre winged plague threatening trading ships. Isolated from his most steadfast supporters, Prince Garric¿s efforts to establish a government with him as the monarch seem doomed to failure as the enemy to human civilization maliciously wrecks havoc throughout the Isles.<P> The fifth tale in the Lord of the Isles series is an exciting epic fantasy filled with several major subplots starring either the Prince or some of his key followers. The story line is very exciting and imaginative, but at times seems over written and endless. The cast remains solid, especially the good guys, who stay in character from their previous appearances, but by book five with all those nasty elements tossed at them one must wonder about growth. Though not as good as David Drake¿s military science fiction, fans of the series will appreciate GODDESS OF THE ICE REALM, just set aside plenty of extra time.<P> Harriet Klausner
