This was my 4th time reading the series and it was just as good as the first 3 times. Also I was able to notice and focus on many things that I haven't before.

I really like how each book focuses on different set of main characters - this way by the end of the series the reader gets...

Review posted on Fantasy Literature:

Summers at Castle Auburn was my first exposure to Sharon Shinn's fantasies, and it was pretty much insta-love for me (I like to think that Shinn returns my affections in a distant and anonymous fan-appreciation kind of way). It instantly set me off on a search...
Wise Child
AuthorMonica Furlong
I heard about Monica Furlong's Wise Child from fellow goodreader Ruby Hollyberry. She wrote that a friend of hers attributed this book making her a witch. That's a neat as hell description of a book, and of course, I had to check it out. I feel some major digressions coming on... Wait, is it just gas? Nah...
AuthorElizabeth Marie Pope
Of the several Tam Lin retellings I've read, the classic YA novel The Perilous Gard is a standout. I frequently sing the praises of Pamela Dean's version of Tam Lin, while knowing full well that that novel will only appeal to a limited subset of the fraction of readers who like fairy tale novelizations....

Recently, life has thrown me some curveballs, so I decided to re-read a character story that was similar to what I was going through. I found Arrows of the Queen early in life (either junior high or early high school) and loved the story then for almost the same reasons I wanted to read it again now. Also,...
