Tietoja tekijästä

Katharine Kerr was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1944. Her maiden name was Katharine Nancy Brahtin. After dropping out of Stanford University in the mid-1960s, Kerr worked in a number of low-paying jobs, including a stint at the U.S. Post Office. In 1976, a friend gave Kerr her first fantasy näytä lisää role-playing game and she became so intrigued with both gaming and the fantasy field that she began writing articles for gaming magazines. After working as a contributing editor for Dragon Magazine, as well as contributing to gaming modules for both TSR, Inc., and Chaos, Inc., Kerr turned her attention exclusively to fiction writing. Kerr is best known for her historical fantasy Deverry Series novels, published by Bantam and HarperCollins. Titles include Daggerspell, Darkspell, Dawnspell: The Bristling Wood, and Dragonspell: The Southern Sea. Kerr also developed The Westlands Cycle series for HarperCollins. Among the titles of some of those novels are A Time to Exile, A Time of Omens, and Days of Blood and Fire. Some of Kerr's other science fiction novels include Polar City Blues, Palace, and Freeze Frames and she has also edited three short-story anthologies. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

I picked this book up in a charity shop, and I'm very glad I did. I've not read any of the previous books but that didn't matter. The story was beautifully written and easy to understand. Can't wait to find the next in the series.

I don't have a lot of patience for high fantasy, especially historically accurate medieval Welsh fantasy. Just not my cup of tea.

Only made it to about 7% - DNF

It's probably a fine story but I think I missed the boat. Perhaps I could have appreciated it at a different time in my life but at this time, unfortunately, I'm not interested.

That prologue was difficult on audio. I can't easily go back and re-listen to something. (I did plan to restart the book so I could re-listen to the prologue as I became more familiar with the story but it was so different than what came next and now, I've DNF'd it). There was some dreamy ambiguousness about "starting in the dark and ending in the dark but you must stay in the light". There are people without faces because they've been in the light too long and then they suddenly have faces.... Then chapter 1 begins and we are in medieval times with a female child being the main character. Her mother has died and she is on the road with her mercenary father.

If I understand correctly there will be 3 main characters and we will follow them, with back and forth time jumps, for over 400 years as they are reincarnated trying to do something correctly.

Descriptions and reviews list all kinds of interesting things but I think for me, at this time, it's too much with all the "fantasy" names and places and time jumps and I don't really want to read a story with a child MC. I'm old af and would like to spend time with characters on this side of experience.
