This series is AMAZING! I'd read the 1st book in the Rhiannon's Ride series, and was then informed by a friend that it was a continuation of the Witches of Eileanan. I ordered the 1st book thru paperbackswap, and was so enthralled that I couldn't wait for more to be listed, so I ordered and bought them all at my local bookstore and went thru the series back to back in about a week. Kate Forsyth paints such a vivid picture of her characters and world that I dreamt in Eileanan for weeks, and even months later, I still will dream about these fantastic stories!
As I read each book in this series it drew me into their world. I can't wait to read the last installment yet I will be sad to read the last. The series was most entertaining, and kept me wanting to find out what will happen next to Isabeau and Iseult.
