I began the book with high hopes.  It seemed to promise a fine mix of Celtic legend and good old fantasy. It captured my attention right from the start...and held it for about one-hundred fifty pages. By the time the battle came around between the dweomers, I was completely lost, and worse, bored witless. I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I never could finish the book. Kerr's character development's were excellent, but somewhere, the karmic promise early in the novel became muddled and I was disillusioned. I may try again later, but I wouldn't recommend the book.

A fantastic start to a great series. Finally, a sword and sorcery
series with a strong female lead!! Pretty much combines all of the traditional
elements of sword and sorcery novels, with one huge twist - there are several
stories woven in to one, as you follow the characters through various incarnations.
Interesitng perspective on life, death and the afterlife, and you may well
find it very thought-provoking. A must-read.

My first thought after reading this book, is that it's somewhat
different from the standard fantasy novel, and that it introduces some
new aspects to this world of literature. After giving it some more thought
I find that I'm probably partly right and partly wrong. You'll find everything
you expects to find in a fantasy story, such as magic, elves, dwarfs, gnomes,
gods and the fight between good and evil. What I find quite different with
this story is how it's written, it's a story that spans over centuries,
and yet is about the same people all the time, or rather their various
reincarnations. Simply a great book, and probably a great start to a great
series (haven't read any of Katherine's other works yet, but I surely will).
