    Ihighly recommend this series.

    I couldn't put it down. It follows the lives of four main characters developed in the first book and continued in the other two. I love history and the druidic lore is fascinating. It combines fact with fiction and makes it totally believeable.

    EXTRAORDINARY. I have been an avid reader of Juliet Marillier for many years. 'The Well of Shades' has the same magic that reminds me Marillier's 'Sevenwaters Trilogy'. The characters are developed very well, allowing the reader to watch them grow and mature. Faolan is a masterpiece of humanity. For all of his strengths and capabilities, the reader is exposed to the vulnerable side of his character. Eile is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters of all time as she battles hardship after hardship and fights for the home she so ardently desires.

    exciting historical fantasy

    In the sixth-century, bard and king¿s spy, Fortriu Faolan of the Uí Néill clan has been assigned three complex and difficult tasks. Pict King Bridei orders Faolan to locate a cleric Colmcille. For himself, Faolan needs to go home to Erin to make peace with his family whom he left behind a decade ago after they were all devastated with the death of his oldest brother. Finally the hardest task of all of all is that he owes his late friend Deord the courtesy of informing the man¿s family that he died. --- Faolan travels to Cloud Hill to deal with the most demanding of his chores, but finds an even more formidable task awaits him when he meets Deord's indigent sixteen years old daughter, Eile and her infant. He puts his personal quest and that of his monarch on hold to escort the child and grandchild of his brother in arms back to the safety of King Bridei¿s court. However, instead of returning to his mission, he and Eile become entangled in a scheme to destroy Bridei¿s half-fey son, Derelei . Bridei¿ enemies hope tis he beginning of the end of the ruler¿s dream to unite the country under his rule. --- Book Three of the exciting historical fantasy Bridei Chronicles (see THE DARK MIRROR and BLADE OF FORTRIU) is a terrific entry as the audience learns more about the pasts of Bridei and Faolan. The story line is fast-paced and will elate fans of the series yet newcomers will have no problem understanding the plot as it can stand alone. Readers will enjoy Faolan¿s latest escapdes as he teams up with the teenage daughter of his late friend. --- Harriet Klausner
