    My take on one of a few authors you will always find in my library...

    This is not a good read for those who like all loose ends tied up in a neat little bow at the end of each book. This 6-book series weaves several beginnings into a concentrated conclusion in an intriguing world filled with the familiar archetypical creatures, characters, relationships, & storylines, as well as new variations on old favorites. Forsyth sets the atmosphere with beautifully descriptive prose &, a favorite part for me, adds another scene-setting layer with adeptly handled vernacular speech. I disagree wholeheartedly that it makes the book unreadable. I would offer it’s no more distracting than reading Mark Twain. *shrugs*
    I am a voracious reader & an “epic series” kind of girl; I become devoted to a world & the characters in it (R.A. Salvatore’s Forgotten Realms & the 150+ books of Dragonlance are in my repertoire to give you an idea), often rereading & zealously awaiting more from the same authors & worlds. I’m always thrilled to find a story longer than a single book or an all-inclusive trilogy to buy all at once to avoid starting & stopping to wait for those pesky publishing pauses. I went through all six within days, sacrificing many hours of sleep just to get through more pages. I also bought the next series (which returns to this world & touches briefly on some of the familiar characters) - Rhiannon's Ride - as it was published. This is big for me. I HATE having to wait on authors for months, sometimes years, to complete the next book – so, needless to say, I believe it’s worth it to invest a few dollars to buy both the Witches & the Ride books (though Ride wasn’t as wonderful as the Witches books, IMHO).
    As to story &/or character dissection, I decline. Part of the whole adventure for me as a reader is doing that for myself. However, I’ll say that I gravitate toward worlds that include not only strong female characters, but male counterparts who allow for female strength while maintaining masculine power. Few authors earn my admiration in this – one can easily fall into the trap of creating weak, testosterone-lacking boys in men’s bodies & overbearing, ball-busting b**ches weighed down with predictable & insipid interactions between not only the different genders, but within their own sex. Forsyth handles this balance well & I feel like the characters react fairly realistically to the situations they are in & to the people (beings) they encounter. She takes a well thought out & poignant run at the nasty anti-magic/witch/Fae storyline focusing on “racial” & familial issues with a perfect touch of darkness. She certainly doesn’t delve as deeply into fantastically disturbing territory as Anne Bishop or Jacqueline Carrey, but who does? (These authors would be my recommendations for those looking for epic, strong female-centered stories with the balance mentioned above IF you’re willing to venture into much darker landscapes.) So, while Forsyth’s world gives a much lighter read, she maintains that same sense of depth & breadth in landscape & characters – something I really enjoy. All in all, worth the time & the money for anyone looking for an easy, fun, engaging read through 6 books of fantasy, adventure, romance, friendship & courage.

    Wishing for book 1

    Why have the second and third books but not book one in this series? Love these books and wish I could get the complete series for my Nook.

    I Also Recommend:

    A Great Escape

    This whole series is a must read for any Fantasy Fiction fan. Kate Forsyth is rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers. I have kept the whole series and it sits right next to my Mercedes Lackey.

    A great epic novel

    I loved this book, it had imagination, romance and adventure. Everything a good fantasy novel needs. After I started it I could not put it down.

    What, Only Five Stars?

    This book deserves way more than five stars. Kate Forsyth brings us back to the mystical world of Eileanan once more with even more action, suspence, and magic. Her gripping writing makes it a real page turner and a quick read.

    A must read

    This is a very good book that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves Celtic stories. The way that Kate Forsyth writes makes it so that you don't even have to read the first book in the series to understasnd The Pool of Two Moons. Trust me that's what I did. This book was beautifully written and a joy to read!
