A lovely book though I must sadly admit it took a couple times reading before I could love this new heroin as much as I loved her ancestors. It is a very wonderful ending to a spectacular Trilogy; that I have, and will continue to read again and again. Everything is connected, from the first novel to the very last. Well written and fast paced.
wonderful storyteller. This is the last book in the series and I didn't want it to end. I never use to read fantasy but thanks to paperback swap I'm hooked. There are some great authors out there and Juliet Marillier is definitely one of the best in fantasy!
