I read this series for the first time more than a decade ago. I remembered enjoying the balance of war and romance very much the first time around and I hoped I would enjoy it a second time. And I did. As an older reader, I do notice holes in it that I didn't when I was younger, but for all that, it is a compelling story that kept me turning pages, even though I know what happens.
Jewel is only one of an array of interesting characters. Kristine Kathryn Rusch takes the opportunity to examine Fey and Islander societies from multiple vantage points - from those their people judge important to those they consider negligible. My favourite characters were Scavenger - a member of the least important Fey known as Red Caps who have no magic and are consequently considered without value - and Matthias - an Elder in a religion which he's not sure he accepts. Though the story switches characters throughout, the pace never flags and each chapter carries the story forward. Definitely worth a read.
The first two books in the series are now available on the Kindle Store - I can wait for the other three to be released !!!!!!
These are Magic Books !!!!!!!
Try instead any other of her series. I for one have enjoyed all of them. They are very unlike, thank you for that, her Fey series.
