Consistent. Obviously, others really like her style. This volume satisfactorily closes the trilogy. All is--more or less--put to rest.

That the conclusion of Aeron's quest presents her with as big a challenge as the quest is appropriate and well presented.

War in space is, at best, alluded to. The big battle at the end is again a land battle. Unconvincing. That earth would just hop into the middle of a galactic war stretches the credibility, too. The Imperium had not nearly the menace of well-wrou...more

The Copper Crown and The Throne of Scone - one story.

What a muddle!

Okay, first things first. These covers are just gorgeous. Thomas Canty isn't given any credit in the actual books, but it's his artwork. (And he even sells signed prints of the images.)

I fully expected to love these. I got a whole bunch of the books of the 'Keltiad' in advance of reading any of them. I don't think I'll be reading all of them.

Fine, the premise is a bit absurd: In the 27th century, a probe ship from Earth discovers...more

I love this book, and the two that follow. This is a book for sci-fi/fantasy fans only--casual readers of popular literature will probably not like it. Aeron, the hero, is a true fantasy figure--she's beautiful, smart, gifted in magic and warcraft alike--her only flaw is her fiery temper.

The premise is fascinating--what if space traveling Earthlings discovered, in the far reaches of the universe, several planets full of earthlings who had fled Ireland thousands of years ago as a result of religi...more

The second book in the series. Continues the story of the overthrow of Aeron and the search for Arthur's treasures so that evil Jaun Akhera and his ilk can be tossed off of Keltia and the return of Aeron and her people. A LOT of action. Excellent read! Another must read.
I probably read this series once every 18 months or so. Likely my favorite book series. It has the additional benefit of portraying my religion in a way that is accurate while accessible.

I'm very fond of this series. An inspired retelling of classic Irish Myth set forward several centuries into the stars.
Enjoying re-reading the saga. I'd forgotten a lot of detail and plot so it almost reads as brand-new :-)
This series is so good I read them in the library and then had to buy them to have them forever.
Just as enjoyable as the first. Finished the stuff off nicely.
Currently re-reading this for the upteenth time
Part of one of my favorite trilogies of all time.
Another re-read. Great again!
