Second time through, and I still loved Neryn. I see where people were put off by the pacing, but it is in the great classic journey motif pattern. It's hard to have your character's journey match what she is figuring out on the inside, but Marillier makes Neryn's internal journey mirror her physical one. Now, off to Raven Flight!

What can I say - I love Juliet Marillier! She always brings her A game to any tale that she tells. I loved this book, but she set the bar so high with Heart's Blood and Daughter of the Forest that I can bring myself togive her 5 stars. It should be 4.5, but for the fact that this is so far above much of the stuff that is being written today. I loved the world building - the badder bad guy is really evil and the Good Folk are simply irresistible. I think that knowing this was one in a trilogy helped with the abrupt ending and the knots that were not loosed in the story. Can't wait until September 2013 for the sequel. PLease write quickly, Ms. Marillier!
