Update and Reviews
I’ve been out of town and ill when I returned. I still need to do another word for the letter O in the Pagan Blogging Project. Need suggestions!
I’ve been reading to entertain myself while sick. Below are two very short reviews.
Echoes of Betrayal by Elizabeth Moon, 3rd Book in Paladin’s Legacy
I enjoyed this latest installment of the Paladin’s Legacy. My only major complaint is that it had been long enough since I read the last book that I was a little lost at times. I could have used a better/bit more of a recap. I would suggest one reread Kings of the North before diving into this one.
The book cleared up some issues a little easier than I would have expected but also introduced more problems along the way. I like how Stammel found something new to do. Dorrin picks up a new/better(?) heir. Kieri gets married. Arvid begins to come to terms with the changes that Paks wrought in his life. Still no clear understanding of what is going on with the elves and things in that area become even more deadly serious.
Interred with Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell
You may have to not only like Shakespeare and the time period in which he lived but also be curious about him to enjoy this book. It hops from Europe to America and back again. The book gives all the current theories of who Shakespeare may have been. This story entails a fictional chase for a long lost manuscript of one of “The Bard’s” plays based on a subplot in Don Quixote. Along the way it teaches some history. Author’s note in the back tells you what is and what is not fictional. The book did make me want to reread several of his plays and read the few that I have not. It also made me want to read Don Quixote which has been on my “to read” list for some time. Same type of genre as Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code.
