Sara Douglass – The Crucible Trilogy


I loved this series and even though she is more well known for her novels, Battle Axe, Enchanter and Starman (which I enjoyed thoroughly) I found these more to my taste simply because that period in history has always fascinated me.  I hope I will have encouraged you to take a peek at what these…

Darkness Falls & Eternally Yours


  She’s back or is she – that it seems will be the question and by her choices wheels of something greater start to turn. This is the continuation of our irrepressible heroine Nastasya’s journey toward herself as she struggles to accept the past and live in the present.   Suffice to say that in…

Immortal Beloved – Cate Tiernan


    This book is the first in the trilogy and it hooks you from the get go.  The story itself in compelling but it is the characters that really draw you in most especially the lead. I have read so many books over the years and have come to realize that the characters that…

We Are Living in a Digital World


After my first few fumbling’s into social media and the digital world I have to admit I am somewhat in sympathy. I mean I love my kindle and all that it holds but it really isn’t the same as being ensconced in a comfy chair, putting your feet up and falling into the pages of a book.  There…

Le Morte D’Avalon

Mad Merlin


Well the title really says it all – as you will see right from the first pages of this book. It is a fascinating look at who Merlin may have really been, the origins of Excalibur (according to Merlin) and the boy who would heal Merlin, wield the sword and unite a great deal more…

Lancelot De Lethe


This is a very different look at the story of Lancelot and Guinevere. Of all three books I liked this one the least. It was brilliant and I did enjoy it very much but I just felt that it lacked the fire of the other two. That, I have come to believe, is because Lancelot…

Book, Books, Books


  Now I don’t know about you but there is very little in life that I consider anywhere close to a good book, except of course a great book. So to start I must admit that I have somewhat confused eclectic tastes in literature and to the amusement of many who know me am quite happy to…
