THE WELL OF SHADES
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
The third book in the Bridei Chronicles series is an excellent stand-alone novel. Backstory is so skillfully woven into the narrative that even newcomers can appreciate the emotional and plot-furthering nuances of every scene. Marillier's passion for Celtic music, Irish folklore and languages is evident in her writing -- the characters and plot form a fine example of literary Celtic knotwork: Twists and turns, bright threads and unexpected shadings contribute to a satisfying whole. Fans of the series will not be disappointed with this installment.
Faolan has been dispatched
As malicious, subtle enemies threaten peace, Faolan, Eile, Broichan and King Bridei himself must learn about the hardest lesson of all -- love. (Tor, May, 496pp., $26.95)
