The saga continues Maedun are working their blood magic to once again invade the Isle of Celi and wipe out its King and the magic it holds. It will take Brynda, daughter of Keylan and her rune blade into places she never thought to see. This another high adventure of blood and magic that you can't put down.

This was actually my least favorite of the three books. I mean, definitely read it, because finish the story and get some new feels in. But also, I just feel that this one wasn't written as well as the first two. Especially considering the improvements I felt arose from first to second book.
I still found myself wanting my lunch break to be longer so I could keep reading, but I didn't really feel connected to the main character the way I did in the first two. She didn't seem like she belonged in

Accidentally read the last book in this series first, but it stood alone well without any prior knowledge of the previous books. Quite enjoyable, with the familiar tropes so often found in medieval-style fantasy. Magic, love, war, and healing. Not a groundbreaking read to be sure, but everything you might expect from a pleasantly familiar pattern wrapped in a fast-paced plot.

(Fantasy 1997) Celtic fantasy. More of the same, fighting and love under tough circumstances. It is an enjoyable trilogy if you enjoy this type, which I really do, for all my lack of comments. This trio might actually make it onto my permanent keeper shelves! I think this might be a precursor to the King Arthur sword myths.

As much as it pains me, I'm giving up on this one. The first of this series is on my favorites shelf, but I'm beginning to wonder how well it would fare with a re-read. This one isn't holding my interest at all. Don't know if it's my mood or the writing.
