Fantasy is een genre, waarvoor je in de stemming moet zijn. Dat ben ik niet altijd en ik lees het dan ook niet vaak. De Rode Trillium was ook een van de afgeschreven boeken van de bibliotheek, die al heel lang op de te lezen boeken stapel lag. Ik nam het mee toen we op vakantie gingen, en ook daar belandde het onder op de stapel.

Thuisgekomen besloot ik het nu toch eindelijk te gaan lezen.

Steeds vaker pakte ik het boek op, na een wat moeilijk begin. Ik had niet begrepen, dat het het tweede boek

As with the first novel in the series (Black Trillium), I originally read this back when I was young and loved it. On a visit at an older age, it does not hold up to my memory.

A lot of my complaints are similar to the other novel: the characters are one-dimensional and at times idiotic, there isn't any real tension in the plot, and character "development" happens seemingly at random to meet the needs of the plot and not because of any actual growth. The introduction of children as prominent char

In the past, I LOVED world-builders. However, I have changed.

Purportedly, I have the patience of a saint. However, this proved that assertion wrong.

If I had read this ten years ago, it would have pleased me. However, I have changed.

The lesson gleaned from this: people change. Yet not in every aspect. While I LOVE reading, socio-economic factors have rendered full enjoyment of Julian May very difficult.

The three princesses, Anigel, Kadiya and Haramis face a new threat in the form of a marooned sorcerer that has been rescued.
Is he just a minor magician or is he the fabled Orogastus whom they fought twelve years before? Has he been resurrected and returned stronger than ever looking for revenge?
All the princesses know for sure is that Kadiya has lost her talisman and the world is in an uproar with freak storms and weather assaulting the lands.
The sisters need to work together to fully make the

I thought this was better written than Black Trillium the first in the series. It seemed to me from the ending of Black Trillium Orogustus surviving did not really make a lot of sense though which did annoy me even though there was an explanation. On to the third in the series next!

Thought this would be an interesting sequel to Black Trillium, but was disappointed. Anigel has become Queen of Ruwenda with Khadiya and Haramis serving her as advisors, Haramis in magic as the archmage, Khadiya as the liaison to the Oddlings, the original race of this world. Another dastardly sorceror disrupts the peace and kidnaps Anigel's children, and her sisters try to get them back.

Julian May was the author, and parts of it were twee in a British way, especially concerning the children, wh

Book 2 in the Saga of the Trillium (a collaboration between Marion Zimmer Bradley, Andre Norton, and Julian May). This one is by Julian May.

The action picks up 12 years after the three sisters saved their kingdom. Anigel is queen, Kadiya serves as a link between the humans and the folk, and Haramis is the Archmage.

Once again, a threat to the security of the kingdom emerges, and each princess has a unique role to play.
