RELEASE NOTES:

I was able to find someone else who had this series books and was willing to loan to me so I'm passing these on. I got bombarded with bookrings so I didn't want to hold everyone else up. Thanks for sharing! These are being sent to hbrogan who is next in line for these books.

This may have been my favorite book of the series, but that's probably because everything comes to a climax. Thanks so much for sharing this series. I see that Kate Forsyth is working on a new series set in Eileanan, and I can't wait to read those too!

Sending on today.

This arrived on Friday. I have been really negligent with reading this series. I am going to start book 3 this week and try to get through all four very quickly.

Journal Entry 7 by NeedSun from Perth Road, Ontario Canada on Thursday, September 29, 2005
My favorite books in this series were books 5 and 4, in that order. This book does wrap up the loose ends nicely but it felt a little anticlimactic to me. Alot of time was spent preparing for war, which in all the books, I found to be the least interesting parts. I would definitely have liked to see Fand's part in things expanded upon.

Many thanks to Eyeofhorus for sharing these six books with me. I enjoyed the lot of them and am very grateful I got a chance to read them.

The replacements for books 3 and 4 as well as books 5 and 6 will be posted to Abs tomorrow.

Sent by priority post to Abs on Oct 1

Cheers!

Finally arrived! Picked it up at the post office this morning, will go to the top of my TBR pile...

From the back cover, edited for length and spoilers:
"Driven by ancient hatreds, the Fairgean have called upon dreadful powers to aid them in their quest to totally annihilate all those who dwell upon the land. As the time of the comet draws ever closer, Lachlan and Iseult try desperately to avert the terrible fate the blind seer Jorge had prophesied, testing their strength and love to the utmost.
Meanwhile, Isabeau must travel a dark and dangerous road to fulfill her own destiny and prove herself worthy of the ring of the sorceress. Facing old enemies and new, the most difficult challenge of all will be conquering the ghosts of her past. For if Isabeau is to heal the land, she first must find the way to healing her own troubled spirit."


Why did it have to end? What am I going to do with all that spare time now? I will have to find something else to read... I felt so immersed, it felt almost as real as my actual life. All I wanted was for my work day to end, so I could go back to be with all my favourite friends in this beautiful world. Book 6 ties up all those loose ends and is probably the most predictable book of the series. Not many surprises and some things that I expected, were a bit anticlimactic. But all in all still a very good and entertaining read and I will thoroughly miss Eileanan.

My book #17 in 2006, published in 2002, 436 pages. My total pages for 2006 so far: 4,859 pages.

Arrived here and will have tio wait until I've read the others. :-)

Journal Entry 14 by IrasCignavojo from Tübingen, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Sunday, May 18, 2008
"I can't believe it's not butter" is the brand name of a margerine. Well, I can't belive it's over and there will be no more adventures of Finn the cat and Dide the juggler and Beau and Jay and all the others. And I can't believe it's been two years since I got started with the series. I have read other books intermittedly, including the Inkworld trilogy by Funke and the Twilight trilogy by Meyer, which I both enjoyed. One of the books took incredibly long because I felt it was dragging along, it didn't capture me the way other books did. The last book to send on now - well, I have to admit that I put off finishing it because I did not want it to be over yet.

I enjoyed the series and if gave me lots of ideas for my own writing about Etrorien (a land on Myra of which I had only a few pictures in my head before), some of which I already put into my last NaNovel effort in NaNoWriMo 2007. Thinking of Fand and Nila will help me find a way with the problems there...

Thanks a lot - to eyeofhorus for sharing the series, to cathepsut for making it a ring and sending them to me and to Morgaine for being nice whenever a new book of the series comes her way - and not complaining in the months they did not. I'll just check that she is ready to receive the book, then send it on.

Journal Entry 15 by Morgaine77 from Münchenstein, Baselland Switzerland on Saturday, October 18, 2008
Arrived safely! Thanks so much for sending! I haven't read the previous book yet, it's still on my tbr pile. Will get to it soon, hopefully! As always, even if it takes time, the books won't be forgotten. :-)
