This series of pagan/Wiccan 11th century wish-fulfillment historical mysteries is growing on me. Ordinarily a lot of the elements would annoy me, but somehow, in this book, the specificity of the link to Roman legionary Mithras' worship and much later peat bog sacrificial "threefold deaths" gave the series some rootedness. Now I am more willing to enjoy it and less swift to critique.

I like the relationship between Lisare and the young man - but it seems the spiritual rules the world rather than the practical to a large extent.

I really enjoyed this book. I was initially attracted to it in my local library by the cover showing an atmospheric ruin and a flock of birds overhead in a stormy sky.

It didn't disappoint as it was an easy read with interesting characters. I especially enjoyed the blend of historical fiction with mystical elements as Lassair is a healer with psychic talents that connect her with her ancestors.

I will be looking for other books by Alys Clare in both the Aelf Fen series and the Hawkenlye series.

An interesting story, though I found the juxtaposition of three different points of view, one in first person and the other two in third person, with nothing to distinguish them except extra space in the text, to be somewhat disconcerting. I also could wish that a map had been included, since I wasn't always clear where different places were in relation to one another.

Alys Clare does a very nice job of taking a few pieces of known fact and weaving a story around them. If you like early Medieval English history mixed with a bit of the old religion or magic, this book might be for you.

Seemed to be lacking something, still good, but feels off or maybe hurried towards the end. Overall, a great series.

Managed to get a few of these from the Library at the same time, so am probably overdosing on them!
