This review will apply to both Duainfey, book 1, and Longeye, book 2. I don't believe its accurate to view these two books as a duology but they are halves of the same whole. There is no point (IMO) in reading one if you don't also plan to read the other book.

Anyway, I found this duo of books to be captivating, disturbing, engrossing, and satisfying in the sense of traditional high fantasy. There are the Fey, there are humans, there are sentient trees and animals, there is an e
Although I really liked this book, I still have mixed feelings about why the story was split into two novels - neither of which can stand alone, but must be read together. I really do think a more tightly edited version topping out between 450 and 500 pages would have been a tighter package.
Genre: High Fantasy involving the Fae

This was an engrossing read, but it felt like there was very little substance... The hero and heroine don't really decide to do anything about the problems of the world, they kind of accidentally end/recreate it... they don't even come to a full understanding of the problem - the reader does because the villain eventually figures it out (he's after all one of the individuals who created the problem - it just got a bit beyond him).

The heroine spends much of th
I don't know if this was actually worse than "Duainfey" or just suffered in comparison to other books I finished recently. The entire construct is so spun from fairy dust that I found it hard to care much about the characters, especially Rebecca Beauvelley. It was easier to care in the first book, when she was a woman stolen away from home and abused. In this book the things she does and the decisions she makes become more and more obscure. I believe this is also a fault in some of Lee and Mille ...more

The conclusion of the Duainfey duology finally brings Meripen and Rebecca together and answers many questions (i.e. what is Kest and why was Rebecca so "sought after" by Altimere) Thankfully it is free of the sexual subjugation of the first book. However the ending was just as bad as the first one. Things were done and boom it's over. Can't say I'd recommend this book or the first one to any one that likes to read what I do, which is a shame since I've always really enjoyed every other Sharon Le ...more
Lee and Miller strike again! These guys know how to pace a story and create characters and totally leave you wanting more at the end. Longeye is a followup to Duainfey. Oddly, the longeye never really features in either book. Hmmm, makes one wonder.

My one main criticism of the book is that I would have liked to have seen some things more fully fleshed out. It could have used another fifty pages. And it certainly wasn't bloated.
Sequel to Duainfey. And very different in mood to the first one. This one is more mystery and real romance. There are enough flashbacks that it is not absolutely necessary to have read Duainfey for this story to make sense. This very enjoyable read manages to wrap up the story and answer your questions in fine fashion. As always Lee and Miller's writing sparkles and the characters are well-rounded.
Even better than the first book of this two-parter. Becca, ill used in the first book, is now healing and learning more of the Fey world and the power which makes it seem magical to us. Who can resist the struggle to set our world and the world of the Fey to rights again and find love along the way? Excellent read.
I enjoyed most of this story. Like the previous book there is some more risque scenes, but I was somewhat confused at the end. There were bits of the story that didn't have a good explanation. I haven't decided if I liked the ending or not.
Not my favorite duo (Duainfey and Longeye) from Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. I much prefer their space operas -- the Liaden series. An interesting read though.

If you like books about elfs this is the second in a series about a young woman who is seduced by an elf to her reqret, and how she wins out in the end.
I sped right through this book and enjoyed it.
Please see my review of Duainfey.
