Back of the book says: "Ever since the slaughter of the withces, the Fae--who should be shielding their long-lost cousins from danger--have ignored the needs of the rest of the world. And shadows are again gathering in the eastern villages--dark, potent shadows that threaten the lives of every witch, woman, and Fae.
My opinion: While it doesn't hold a candle to her Dark Jewels trilogy, it's still a fun read. A detailed and believable magical world. And saying that it's not as good as the Dark Jewels trilogy--well, a Hershey's bar isn't as good as Swiss chocolate, either.
book two of the Tir Alainn trilogy.If the Fae don't act soon no one will survive. Magic, love and breathtaking worlds.
A nice sequel which continues the story of the Fae folk and the Witches. I enjoyed it more than the first book.
Straight fantasy/adventure, but Bishop has a friendly and engaging style that brings her characters to life.
I'm looking forward to reading the climax of the trilogy.
Great fantasy fiction weaving together a bard, a muse and a gatherer of souls. It is a well written story of good standing against evil.
Well, though I feel like I'm reading these books slower because they're less absorbing than her other books - they are still quite interesting. I am definitely enjoying them and the story is a solid one. This one is, I think, better than the first in some ways, but strange because it completely abandons the P.O.V. that is the most prevalent in the first book.
