Description: Flat on his back, an
injured police detective explores one of historyís great mysteries.
An interesting exploration of the way people perceive the past. History not
always being what you think. How straight forward martyrs and murder and
rebellion, arenít always clear.
If truth is the daughter of time, then sheís a bastard child and often covered
The book that made me a Ricardian.
Description: Conclusion of the Dark
Angel Series. The final battle with the Lorelei is joined. Swords and sorcery
waited many years for this final book in this series that I read in Junior
High. This fantastic journey across a fantastic moonscape. Golden in the
light of the Solstar. Erie in the light of Oceanus, lost earth. I had to wait
till college, which may have been a good thing.
The end is surprise and inevitable and very made me want to read it for my
Final Literature Orals. Itís that kind of end.
This isnít an easy book for an easy read. What is a soul? Life? Water into
blood. Rain into life. Lost chances. The difference between a shadow and
darkness by ruby eyes. A love that is bold enough not to let go. Cold heaven
with star maidens. And that book of the city of Ladies feel.
Description: Medieval fantasy series
set in alternate Europe.
Itís rare that you read a series where the main character is a saint. Filled
to the brim with doubting. With faith. With dialectic thought.
Yeah, yeah, adventure, battles, witch hunts and loss.
What I love about the series is the characterization. Alf, the main character,
is a foundling, an Elvin magical thing that doubts the existence of his own
soul. Struggles with his faith, and thus his faith is a thing worth having.
Really, the best of all Tarrís books. The series wanders from Richard the Lion
hearts Anglia, to Byzantiumís fourth crusade washed shores to ruined Rome.
great read for a sink into never were.
