Have you ever read any of her books such as Daughter of the Forest or Wildwood dancing?

I've got them on my TBR but haven't read them yet, so I'm curious what people say also.

You might want to ask this in the Fantasy forum.

She's one of those authors I can't believe I  haven't read yet.  I've only heard great things -- maybe those books need a bump up on the old TBR pile....

oh yeah, she writes good stuff.

i've read her sevenwaters trilogy (starts with daughter of the forest) and the Bridei Chronicles (starts with the dark mirror) and enjoyed both series.

Yes, I'm on book 3 of the Sevenwaters Trilogy, and I highly recommend them.  They appeal to so many different groups -- Irish lore, nature lovers, lovers of strong female characters, fantasy, etc etc.

Cheers,

Catt

I've read the Sevenwaters trilogy and Daughter of the Forest was my favorite. I also really enjoyed the second one but had a hard time with the third book in the series. Overall, I enjoyed her writing and do want to read the Bridei Chronicles.
