Mellings scholarship is evident. In fact, some readers may wonder why she just didnt write a nonfiction book about Irelands rich folklore, as her characters often step clumsily out of the narrative to spout a factual, yet hyperbolic speech about a particular cave, lake or legendary creature. But while Mellings writing is less successful when her characters are on this side of the Veil, her descriptions of Fairie are sweeping and romantic. Fans of writers like Midori Snyder or Clare Dunkle are sure to enjoy them. (Ages 10-15) --Jennifer Hubert --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
All the books are great and the plots and chracters just keep getting better.
Her plot is good and moves along nicely for the reader and I would recommend that any person reading this book pick up the rest of the Chronicles of Faerie as well.
Time is running out--Hunter's Moon approaches and if Gwen can't get her cousin back, Finn will become the annual sacrifice to the Great Wyrm.
For some reason this series just never sucked me in the way I hoped it would. I am a huge fan of fantasy and fairy type fiction. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Rosella Jane
