i do not know which is better her seven waters trilogy or the first book in the bridei chronicles the history and detail she uses to tell the story of Bridei and his Good folk 'heart friend' Tuala is astonishing i only wish i had half her talent with the pen she grabs my attention in the first sentence and refuses to let go until the end the best thing about this book is the light she puts on actual event in early scotland it made the researcher in me come alive the dimension of her characters leaves no doubt on wether or not they exist it is a three dimensional book with three dimensional characters five stars is not enough to exemplify the unique talent for the combination of writing and history she shows.

Young noble Bridei resides with powerful druid Broichan, who seems to be training the lad for some unknown intention that he fails to explain. Broichan treats the lad reasonably well and has earned Bridei¿s trust though the youngster would like to more about his past before coming here because he has no memory of it and he wonders what the Druid¿s plans are for him........................... On Midwinter Eve Bridei finds an abandoned infant on their doorstep. Since the baby apparently comes from the fairie realm, Broichan wants to kill it as any trafficking with the wee folks, even with good intentions, usually mean trouble. Bridei persuades Broichan to let the child live with them. Over the years the wild child Tuala becomes a beautiful woman, who the studious Bridei desires, but Broichan fears she will prove to be the doom of his apprentice slated to one day unite the divided land under the one king...................... THE DARK MIRROR is a deep pre-Celtic Scottish romantic fantasy. The cast is wonderful as opposites Tuala and Bridei fall in love while his mentor fears their relationship will lead to tragedy for his student and catastrophe for the people waiting for the one king to surface. This spellbinding tale is filled with strong characterizations and vivid descriptions of the era interwoven within a story line that contains plenty of action and can stand alone though trouble seems on the horizon in the next Bridei Chronicle for the hero and his beloved................

There are several books this author has given for us all to enjoy, and each are unique. However, I think this one is the best of her talents all in one. Beautiful storytelling, vivid descriptions and solid characters make this a wonderful tale.

I have read the whole series and will read it again. I couldn't put it down and wish the author would continue the adventure with another book. The melding of fact with fiction made the story seem completely believeable.

This story is wonderfully imaginative and intriguing until the end. The story may start off a little slow with a lot of waiting for the action to start but once it does you can't put the book down. The interwoven stories of the characters keep your interest and keep you wondering what will happen next. With every character hoping for a slightly different outcome you don't know which way the author will end it. The blind faith the characters have in their Gods also gives the story a very unique dynamic. Overall, I found this book very enjoyable and I will read the rest of the series.
