I am enjoying Melissa Sasina's writing style and that she stays true to the word play that is true to the time era. This series is turning out to be a big winner for me. I'm not sure what awaits me in the next book but I am excited to find out!
One of my favorite things is the archaic, era-appropriate terms and language. It gives the story a wonderfully authentic feel and who doesn’t like learning new words? These stories are woven in with just the right dose of the arcane, yet never enough so as to make it seem foreign, just right.
These books trot along fairly quickly and I’m never quite sure which direction they’ll take. There is never a shortage of action or sword fights and the detailed battles are always an exciting shot of action.
There is a lot more sex in this one than in the previous, which I suppose makes sense in the storyline, but yes, I did skip them. It’s a policy I don’t plan on repealing in the foreseeable future and it also means I wouldn’t consider this as young adult by any means, just so you YA readers out there know.
We meet a good many new characters in this one as well as some familiar friends (and enemies). There is a greater exploration of the different tribes and clans as well as their dynamics which made for excellent world building.
In addition, there is a great deal more delving into marital institutions of the era. Despite this being a fantasy, the characters’ attitudes and opinions regarding marriage and the entailed responsibilities/duties of husbands and wives came across as highly realistic and was one of my favorite elements. However, there was this one part where I think a character basically told his wife to cheat on him. I may have misunderstood and sincerely hope I did, but…yeah, let’s just say I hope I misunderstood.
I had a great deal of fun in reading this book and I am very much looking forward to Eclipse coming out later this year. I recommend this for fans of mythology and Celtic-based fantasy worlds—the author certainly put a great deal into the world building and it shows.
The time has come for Shiovra to travel to Dun Fiain to marry Lord Culann’s son, a man she has never met, to hopefully bring peace between the clans. The journey was not without incident, Fomorii fog separated the group allowing Shiovra to be attacked by Cumhea, and Odhran to be critically injured trying to rescue her. Saved by a stranger named Morgan, Shiovra discovered markings on Odhran’s back which gave doubt to his true identity, leaving Shiovra confused about her feelings, and with a decision to make about her upcoming wedding.
Although it is well over a year since I read book one of the series, Defiance, I was quickly able to get back into the story. It did take me a little time to recall who was who, which characters belong to what clan, and who were the good guys so to speak, this was just because of the unusual names, but I always struggle with names chosen by fantasy writers! I’m a sucker for a love story and really enjoyed those parts of the plot. Odhran has been added to my list of favourite book men, his feelings for Shiovra and his protectiveness of her was dreamy.
I really enjoy Melissa’s easy writing style and her stories, though not totally unique as they follow the ‘Fantasy pattern’ of female lead character who has to go on a journey fighting along the way etc, they are still entertaining and manage to elicit a variety of emotions from the reader.
