The Fall of The Celtic Warrior (Scathach) part 2
See part one at 'sinking isle')) Scatty nodded to Snowy. "Yes. Nicholas and the Twins will want to see that we are both o.k., though I see no reason we wouldnt be." She said, quietly. Snowy had her aura- a pure bronze- flash around her in reply, and she walked down a narrow alleyway. "Come on! We're going to get Hekate's ghost on us if we dont get there soon!" She yelled. Scatty squeaked and ran to keep up, her aunt, Hekate, had been killed by the sword Excalibur only a week ago. Snowy knew it had happened in Hekate's own Shadowrealm and used that devestating event to lure the Shadow into going faster. Snowy was better at blending in, unlike Scatty. Yea, Snowy had fangs and wings. She called them cosplay. Scatty, she had fangs, and she stood out from every group. Snowy was the mentor of Scathach, and the last Dyre in existence. Scathach was one of many Vampires, and nearly impossible to kill. Snowy often joked around with commoners, and rarely took alleyways around. This time was much different. Evil creatures that existed only on humani's darkest myths were on their trails.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Worth it, but check out his others first
I was impressed with Boyle's ability to keep so many storylines straight, not to mention keeping ahold of how the characters from different time periods are connected, however, I was not impressed with my own ability to do so. Having read Sometimes a Great Notion and similar books that juggle characters like a circus performer on speed and having understood and enjoyed them heartily, I felt Boyle could've worked with a few less characters and composed a more sound book. If your mind can easily flit from scene to scene, personality to personality, or storyline..., then this is the book for you. A bit of a challenge for me which brought the interest down at times. Not exactly a 'sit back and relax' kind of read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
