The books get shorter as they go along, but I still enjoy McKiernan's take on Faery. Review to come.

I really liked the first book in this series. And the 2nd one was alright, too. However, it was disappointing my the third book because I realized the PLOT IS EXACTLY THE SAME in all the books. They just changed the name. Girl meets boy. They fall in love. Something happens to tear them apart. A quest insues. Girl meets the Wyrd sisters. They give her riddles. She barely saves guy in the nick of time. They live happily ever after.

That is all fine and good..however, it gets repetitive. Still, I r

Sadly, I wasn't as impressed with this book in the series. I think it was more my personal disagreement with how the author approached the story than actually a lack of skill. The storyline closley followed the first book's. A few parts were unique and that is what I liked the best, however, the author shows the main character pining for love - especially her innerthoughts - which really was quite annoying and didn't add to the story. Some repetition, too, of the same facts and riddles from prev ...more

I enjoyed this book very much! I loved how McKiernan took the fairy tale "The Glass Mountain" and turned it on its head by reversing the roles of who is held is captive and who does all of the rescuing, along with other tiny details that I won't reveal. Can't wait to get my hands on the next book!
once again what I didn't like about the other 2 books I didn't like in this one ( Why then do I continue in this series?!) well I will tell you.
I am a sucker for faery tales.
out of the series so far this tale is my favorite.
The Fairy Godmother
Third in the series. Based on the fairy tale of the Glass Mountain and the Scottish ballad of Tam Lin.

This wasn't much better than the last one. Still wordy, with excessive description and characters that leave something to be desired...

I wasn't really sure which tale this was so it was hard for my to follow or get into. I love his writing style no matter what.
