it was amazing
bookshelves: series

A friend recommended this to me, as well (apparently I've gotten sick of scouring my bookshelves and making decisions, so I get other people to decide for me—it's working quite well!). I'm really glad he recommended this series. Coming off the two Dragons of Pern books, I realized that I'd been neglecting my "hard-core" fantasy novels (I use "hard-core" because I would call Harry Potter fantasy, but not the kind of fantasy you have to go to the sci-fi section to find.. you know what I mean). I was drawn to this series when I was intially told about it because it sounded like it had some parallels to Arthurian legend; and it kind of does, but it goes beyond that. Williams seems to draw from Arthurian legend, as well as possibly Celtic and Norse legend (there are many times I feel like I could be reading a story straight from ancient Ireland), and weave them together with Christian-like mythology—I realize this sounds convoluted and more than a little wacky, but it's really good, I swear!

Roxanne I really, really love this series. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts after you finish Green Angel Tower.
