I kept trying to find some fault with this book, as a product of reading too many review blogs that are critical of fantasy. But there wasn't anything special, other than it was slow-going at times, and I'm not even sure if that's the fault of the book so much as of me. I liked that it seemed based on a Celtic viewpoint, but otherwise I didn't care too terribly about this book. My central problem was that I never connected with the main character. I couldn't decide if she was that cold-hearted before she got the stone, or after, or what happened to her, but I never felt like she had any sort of empathy for anyone else, and that turns me off from people in general. So I won't be reading the rest of the series, but this book itself wasn't a horrible book - just not my cup of tea.
