Juliet Marillier ↠ 8 Summary.
This is a good book The writing is fairly good the world well researched and evocative the action well paced and the story resolves well emotionally while leaving the larger plot open for the next two novels Its main flaw is that it seems so terribly familiar It is an imaginative chronicling of Bridei son of Maelchon who ruled the Picts in Scotland in the 11th century but it could be any number of historical fantasy novels There is the reuisite young boy destined for greatness his distant but devoted mentor his boyhood companions who fall by the wayside and of course there is a girl with mystic powers who falls deeply in love with him and who he has sworn to guard but who none of his guardians approves of There are of course obstacles put in the boy s path politics and destiny intrude at inopportune times and everyone goes about making long faces and refusing to listen to each other Finally difficulties melt away and the boy steps into the shining light of his destiny as was ordainedThis book did its job well I want to read the next one in the series But I spent the entire time reading it thinking about how I had seen every character before with the minor exception of Faolan who I want of but who would probably disappoint me if I got what I wanted and how ridiculously simple resolution of everyone s problems would be if they simply sat down and talked to one another That I think was the biggest failing of the book for me I get so tired of novels where people supposedly GREAT people make the simple things in life so complicated by refusing to speak of them It was the same difficulty I had with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss which of course also featured a young boy destined for greatness but I was able to rate that novel higher because it didn t have the added annoyance of doomed lovers thrown inI wish there was fantasy written by authors who worked a little harder at dev A firm nope from me after 100 pages I can already feel my brain turning to mush and I m not putting myself through another 412 pages of torture 4 and a half stars I can t go any lower for a Marillier bookThis review and at even starting this book I new I would like it It s written by one of my favorite authors one that never lets me down It s another amazing tale of twisted fate and Otherworld influences I loved the two main characters Bridei and Tuala although Tuala Shapely Ankle Preferrd kept reminding me of Sorcha my favorite Marillier character from Daughter of the Forest Bridei is courageous and true incredibly loyal and intelligent Tuala is trying her hardest to fit in but her powers and fey appearanceeep putting barriers between her and the people she loves You grow close to the many other characters as well and care about what happens to the Sword at Sunset kingdom of FortriuI have to say I felt a little offended that the villains were all redheaded the Gaels so there were a few nasty hair color insults I want myind to be the heroes but in this tale we were stuck being the foes I liked following a male and a female character because I was able to see the battles Bridei fought and see Tuala behind the walls of the women s only priestess schoolIf you love deep forests with hidden glades and secret pools you ll be right at home in this setting I could live there no problem The magic of MARILLIER S WORLDS IS THE BEST s worlds is the best It s mysterious and never fully explained It Fair Play (Zephyr Ranch keeps the reader guessing at how much power the gods and the Otherworlders have They re mischievous and don t have the same compassion that humans share They whisper in your ear and dart between trees and shadows But as much as they d like toeep the fact hidden they always seem to take an interest in human strugglesThe only reason I gave this four and a half stars instead of 5 is because I feel like I m comparing this book with all of Marillier s other books and although this one was great it wasn t uite as mind blowing as her others I m on to the next book so I m thinking that after the entire trilogy is complete I ll get that mind blowing experience that I m accustomed to Come with me now now I need you Showing her with his hands his mouth his body just what this need had become a thing that seemed fit to devour him unless it were satisfied Said girl is 13 years old DO Test Syphon Filter

Havilland perhaps OT WANTI love Juliet Marillier but this series is not among my favorites It was a confusing book It s set in a Pictish 500 AD or so era with some magic and druidism and tbh I have no idea wtf it is that a druid does and what the main character Bridei is meant to do The storyline was very difficult to follow and half of the book had me falling asleep because I could not give two shits about Bridei s druidic trainingFurther this book made me uncomfortable with its depiction of romance between a 13 14 year old girl and a 19 20 year old man I get that this is supposed to be a different time in which girls 12 13 years old were deemed ripe for marriage and by 16 are perilously close to being over the hill But still man His hands seemed to now without stirring just how it would feel to brush that pale cheek to linger on the delicate neck to caress the soft curves of her with passion and reverence his body was telling him with utter certainty what joy it would take in pleasing her Again SHE IS 13 YEARS OLD HE HAS KNOWN HER SINCE SHE WAS AN INFANT AND THEY GREW UP AS SIBLINGSThe romance in this book is all sorts of creepy Bridei a 6 year old boy finds an infant girl Tuala and raises her as his sister They are close as can be throughout childhood then BOOM ERECTION Not cool man Not cool They are separated for a couple years then suddenly Bridei sees her again and feels desire It just makes me deeply uncomfortable The Dark Mirror is a strange read It s artistic it s artsy it s character strong and character weak Early on I thought I might give it 4 stars but now I can t bring myself to give it 3Pros Prose lots of nice prose though not amazing The supporting characters offer a lot to the book as well with a variety of interesting and uniue personalities The plotting varies sometimes moving very uickly and sometimes uite slowly but it is mostly strong and compellingCons Very weak main characters with little or no che Actually rating 35 starsLike always Juliet Marillier amazes me with the rich words and complex characters as well as original plots This book follows Bridei and Tuala two children that are bound by gods to be much then they expected from their lives I had only one problem with this book and that was the little time Bridei and Tuala spend with each other I mean they fall in love after they grew up together as best friendsbrother and sister but the transition was so weird that I felt nothing In my opinion it should made me root for them or feel that they matched each other or something but it felt so boring and I hated because usually Marillier s couples really make you love them with all of your heart It is the only author that made me enjoy a great love story maybe because the couples are very wise and mature but this one felt awfully boring and childish Admittedly I have not read many epic fantasies so I have very few works to compare The Dark Mirror to I m fairly certain this would constitute as an epic fantasy I was worried when I began that I was not going to like the book but I stuck it out and am glad that I did Once involved in the story I truly enjoyed it and it had absolutely no problems holding my attention The reader is introduced to the characters and the world in such a way that it is easy to understand "the complexities of their society and faith I like the fact that this could be read alone without "complexities of their society and faith I like the fact that this could be read alone without need to read the rest of the series All the loose ends in the story were wrapped up nicely while hinting "at future possible story lines I am looking forward to reading the rest " future possible story lines I am looking forward to reading the rest the seriesMy only complaint about this book is that it is highly predictable From the beginning you new how things would turn out for the main characters There were a few twists and turns along the way but none of
