    " I really enjoyed this book, but at times it was slow moving and I grew bored. I generally like Celtic fantasy/magic type books, so I picked this one up on a whim. May or may not go back and read others in the series. "

    " Wish I could give it a 4.5. It was a really good read, but not as good as "Druids." "

    " I just stumbled on this book at the library when looking for "How Green Was My Valley". (Authors names ;^) I really enjoyed the book. Of course now I have to read the first one. I look forward to reading some of her other books as well as they all look very interesting!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Blocksom | 3/2/2012

    " A bit slow moving at first but full of detail about what Celtic existence may have been like, told through the story of Ainvar and his clan. This is a continuation of an earlier story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 12/27/2011

    " Not as rich as Druids but still an excellent read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 12/23/2011

    " Not as good as its precursor - Druids. The writing style in this one seems a bit more perfunctory. Also, it was less tied to actual historical events, which caused it to lose some of the epic nature that I enjoy in historical fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Skinner | 6/17/2011

    " I was really going with this story until the end. I enjoyed the author's take on the Druids and their magic. And the characters were well-drawn and believable. Unfortunately, the POV shift in the final pages was incongruous and disturbing. "
