    Compares to the Sevenwaters Triology

    If you like Juliet Marillier, then you will enjoy this author. I have been a great fan of Patricia McKillip and Robin McKinley for years, and I have found a new author.

    Wonderful!!

    This was a great book. It had all of the elements. Well developed characters, a long luxurious plot line, and a world in which anything can happen. Jenna is just a kind girl who is content with life. But that life is changed forever when she is chosen to weild a power that ushers in a new age for her world. A story full of mystery, political intrigue, and magic. An instant classic.

    WOW!!!!

    One of the best reads I have found in fantasy since Lord of the Rings! S.L Farell makes the characters come alive and you feel drawn to them. I read it in a couple of days because I just couldn't put it down. I now have to go back to the bookstore to get the sequel.

    Excellent Fantasy Find

    I found this on accident when the library didn't have the book that I wanted. But I read this and was /very/ glad that I found it instead. It is amazingly detailed and there are many undercurrents in the more obvious plots. Definatly a great find for anyone who enjoys a good fantasy read.

    Can't wait for the next 2 books!

    I couldn't put down Holder of Lightning. I read it in just a couple of days--and then I wanted more. Unlike many fantasy worlds, I BELIEVED this one. Talamh An Ghlas comes alive with details both strange and familiar, but despite these rich details the action of the story doesn't get bogged down. And Jenna was a character worth caring about. Although plot twists make sense, the novel isn't predictable either. Read this one, it's a great pleasure. I'm looking forward to re-reading it soon, which for me is the best measure of how worthwhile a book is.

    Great Book

    After reading this book I felt the need to recommend it to everyone. I usually read 'Space Sci-Fi' but I thought the cover and the intro were enticing so I took a chance and bought it. I really liked how you stay with the same character through most of the book and I can't wait for the next!
