I was very, very glad I bought this book. I had done just fine with The Witches of Eileanan series, but it was a little boring at times, and I didn't feel that any of the books deserved more than four stars. Still, when I found a used copy of this book in great shape at Powell's one day, I bought it. I figures, it only cost four dollars, and I at least know I'll like it.

I loved it! This book is exciting, scary and romantic. The author has really let herself explore areas she wasn't willing to write about previously, such as sex. I was especially impressed in this book by the very spine tingling horror plot line, which felt much more mature than past works by this author.

This book takes place twenty-five years after the Fathomless Caves left off. The realm is peaceful, and all is well. But Rhiannon, knows nothing of this. She's half satyricon, half human, and because she only has one pair of breasts, and no horns on her head, she's not respected or loved in her pack. But one day, after killing a young man who escaped from the pack (males of the species are rare so they kidnap human males and basically rape them) she captures a winged horse, and flies away. Only to land right in the lap of civilized people, friends of the young man she killed. They just happen to have been in the Witches...series as well.

As I said before, I was impressed by this book. It showed growth in every way a writer can grow and I eagerly await the second book in this series. I may even pre-order it.

For fans of the "Witches of Eileanan" series, you will absolutely love this book. There's a return of the original cast of characters, even though the story focuses on new ones. "Tower of Ravens" begins what looks to become a fabulous new series.

If you haven't read her previous series, read that first before you pick up this book. Not only would you be missing out, but you'll also be lost when reading this. Even I had a little bit of trouble since it has been so long since I read "Witches." But by keeping the original characters seperate from the main plot, she can continue to forward their story without overdoing it like many authors out today.

Once again Forsyth puts forward an excellent plot and imaginative characters that the reader will completely devour. And it seems she's learned something- gone are the slow spots that occassionally slowed down her original series. This book is absolutely riveting and will keep you craving for more.

I picked this book up on a whim at the airport two weeks ago. I was quickly drawn into the story but ended up not having the time for more than 30 or so pages that day. By the time I took my next flight the following day, I couldn't wait to pick it up again. The author sets the story into motion and introduces the characters in a way that makes the reader not want to put the book down. The manner in which she introduces both the story and the characters allows the reader to fully enjoy this book without having read any of her previous books; though now that I have read this one, I intend on reading her other ones. I hoe that this has been helpful

I loved Kate's previous Witches of Eilelanan series, and was thrilled to have discovered that she had released a series set in the same world. I have read this novel, and only yesterday finished the 2nd book in this series, The Shining City. I was unable to put them down.

25 years in the future following the end of the Witches series, a new story emerges with a wild half-satricoryn girl as the main protagonist. She is savage, violent, and one of the most fasinating characters I have had the pleasure of reading about for some time. Kate does a marvellous job with both the plot and characters of this series, with a twisting and edge-of-your-seat story that has you reading long into the night, and characters which you can get close to.

I was sad when the Witches series came to a close, so I was delighted to find many of my old favourites still going strong, with the plot mainly centred on the children of the original characters. Whilst it is not neccessary to have read the Witches series to enjoy Rhiannon's Ride, I would strongly reccommend reading them first as it will allow you a greater depth of knowledge of the world and characters so intergral to this story.

One of the characteristics of Kates writing that I have found very enjoyable, in this series in particular, is how she continually switches PoV. It means that the reader is able to understand the feelings and motivations behind many characters which would otherwise appear two dimentional. It allows us to understand why characters behave a certain way, and temper our judgement of right and wrong.

I would definately advise anyone who like fantasy novels to read this series, and not be perturbed by the dialect used, as you quickley become accustomed to it.

OK, there are already plenty of descriptions for this book, so I don't think mine is necessary. Just know that I loved this book sooooo much. I didn't even know that Kate Forsyth had a new book until I was wandering through Barnes and Noble with no money. I immediately freaked out when I saw it and I had to beg my Dad to buy it for me. When I had the book I read it almost non-stop for the next few days. It was really good. Although I guess it would still be great as a stand-alone, I suggest reading Forsyth's other books because they're really good too. This was done well as a sequel because it didn't have too much contact with older characters that don't really have anything important to do in this particular book. I look forward to reading the next book and being reunited with characters from the Witches of Eileanan series.

READ THE BOOK!!!! If you don't like it I'll give you a dollar.
