Tirnan 'Oge - I don't know if Amanda McIntyre meant for this book to be emotional and tear inducing, but the story of Roan McNamara broke my heart in a sad, yet wonderful way. He was simply an amazing guy. Some thought him crazy and mad, eccentric in his desire to be alone. But that was his fate after one beautiful, soul-shattering faery kiss when he was younger. From that moment on Roan's heart would forever belong to the Sighoge faery named Feeorin.
You won't find a traditional romance in Amanda McIntyre's Tirnan'Oge, but what you will find is a man and his touching, selfless sacrifice to pass along the stories of the Fey, without it, peoples beliefs will disappear as will eventually the Faery people. So Roan chooses a life of solitude in which he gathers faery stories that he writes for publication. And when he feels he's passed on enough of the tales maybe then his sacrifice to remain alone rather than take what his faery love offered him three times in the past will pay off: A mortal life with him, or an immortal life with her.
This may be a novella, but it had an epic feel to it, encompassing more than 50 years. And not one time did the story feel rushed. It just kept sucking me in, and sucking me in. Amanda McIntyre's writing voice in Faery Song was simply amazing. There is no action and fighting, heck there isn't even a raised voice in all the pages. It's just a simple, profound telling of Roan's lonely life and the small amount of people in it. Roan does have a happily ever after, but it's a lonely journey for him to get there. But he's okay with that, because he believes in his heart that he has made the right choices. I loved this story.
One thing I've come to appreciate about Amanda McIntyre's writing, is that her stories are so original in their set up.Read more ›
