This cozy fantasy series is directly aimed at women, middle-aged women who would rather sit around a fire and chat about their past than go off on risky quests. I'm usually quite impatient with such a slow plots, but something about these books draws me in. Maybe it's the quiet thoughtful details in the textures and faces, or the medieval architecture, or maybe it's the flashes of quirky humor in some of the more unique characters. Maybe because I'm actually one of those middle-aged women...

Since there are lots of Tolkien-esque fantansies about boys, men, and sometimes teen-age girls who go off on these quests, perhaps it's time for a story about the women who stay in the castle, raise the magical babies, do the un-magical laundry, and cook for the visiting dwarves (hammerlings).
