I never say this about books i am usually critical and the most i give are 4 stars if i really like it. but I loved all these books. This whole series I was sorry to see it end or whatever i REALLY wanted them to keep it going. I think I can say I don't think I have one book I don't like more then the other. I take that back the first book with i read out of order hooked me fast. i don't think this is a main stream book to say for sure the art work hasn't been Holly-wooded up and it looks like a ...more

I'm not sure it's the best book to read immediatly after Walls of Westernfort. I liked it (although I have to admit the thing with the knives confused the hell out of me), but it has no worldbuilding or the amazing character development of the first two books.

It's telling that the Appendix, while short, was so much more interesting to me. I was literally shaking my head over the irony in that little piece of history from the Elder-Ones.

I have a fairly easy time finding m/f and m/m books that fit my tastes, but f/f has been really hit-or-miss. While browsing All Romance Ebook's Lesbian category, I noticed that quite a few of the titles I marked as being potentially interesting and non-skeevy were published by Bold Strokes Books. The next time ARe had a sale, I decided to give Bold Strokes Books a shot. Rangers at Roadsend was one of my purchases.

This is another one of those times when writing things out in paragraph form seems
Of all the Celaeno books I've read so far it's left the least positive impression.

I'm not sure whether it was the order I read it in, it's a pretty much direct prequel to Temple at Landfall, and having read that, I knew how it was going to end. That in itself is not necessarily a problem if it's filled with enough meat besides the obvious parts of the stories and here I just didn't feel there was. Heavy on romance, a murder mystery and information about the Ranger characters from Landfall, the o
+ New characters.
+ Backgroud stories of known characters.

+ Good amount of pages
+ Good dialogue
- Same thing with description.
- Shorter "mature" moment than the previous ones.
- Prequel instead of a sequel.

Overall: You can expect pretty much the same you can expect from the other books. Fortunately, this one gain my attention by adding a detective-like suspense in it, which was a good addition to the series. You get to learn the story of two main characters, their previou

This prequel to the first two Celaeno books concerns two side charaters from the rangers seen in the first two installments of the series, and how they became a couple. This book, as with Fletcher's other books, relies mostly on character development, and very little plot. There is a murder mystery here, but little is truly devoted to it. Still, the characters are strong and the story engaging enough. Still, this can't hit the high mark left by the previous book in the series.
I'm thinking this might be my favourite book in the Celaeno series so far. As the story takes place before all the others and you're aware of how this is going to end, I didn't expect to like it as much. I did, though. Chip is an engaging character and it's nice to get her story. It helped that there was a minimal amount of the weird scifi background in this book and that the plot for once didn't revolve around the heretics.
As always of Jane Fletcher. I was not disappointed. Out of the five books this one would be rated the fourth favorite. A good read
