Originally published on my blog here in December 2001.One of the perennial difficulties for the fantasy novelist who wants to involve earthly characters is how to take them to the scene of the action Once there, they pay the author back by requiring explanations of what is around them, making exposition easier and seemingly natural I don t recall the precise device used in Glenraven occurring anywhere else, however, and it is always nice to see something new.When Jayjay s marriage breaks up, sh [...]
This is not exactly rocket science, it s a light romance with the touch of the supernatural and vampirism But if you believe in magic, or even if you don t, if you feel like snuggling down for the night with a cup of hot chocolate and letting the world go by, this is a great read
A book about two women who travel to another dimension, called Glenraven They then fight to free it from its evil ruler.
Glenraven ist ein sehr interessantes Land, das von Marion Zimmer Bradley und Holly Lisle erschaffen wurde Die Landschaftsbeschreibungen und die Darstellung der Lebensweise sind sehr gelungen Es wirkt wie ein Paradies, in dem die Zeit stehen geblieben ist, denn es herrschen die Hygienebedingungen des Mittelalters.Leider sind die Ortsnamen sehr gew hnungsbed rftig, deshalb war es sehr schwer, den berblick zu behalten Eine Karte des Landes w re hilfreich gewesen.Auch die Rassenstruktur des Volkes i [...]
Well, sort of historical fantasy It takes place in modern times, but in a place that is medieval and fantastical in nature.Both authors have turned in better work, but this one had a lot of good moments For me, the weakest aspect was that so much of the action was outside the control of any single character, even the villain The whole thing felt like a runaway train at times, especially during the climactic battle scene, and it was moderately unclear what some of the prophecies and omens really [...]
In the genre of middleaged if you think middleaged means thirty something which I don t women end up in improbable alternate fantasy world by riding mountain bikes from Tuscany and then save said world and make everything better and, oh yeah, find true love, or at least one of them does, this book is quite possibly king Or queen Or something It s a or less entertaining read, anyway, and you can skip the dreary parts by counting the vast number of fantasy tropes that get worked into every page.
I read this so long ago I do remember thinking it was quite a lovely fantasy because of the world Glenraven It reminds me of two other stories I really enjoyed One is Robin McKinley s The Blue Sword mixed with a bit of Oz I liked the complexity of the world and the two heroines When two people who are average and still make such an impact, it is a message I like Basically, if people work together and put their mind to it, amazing feats can be accomplished.
Esse o tipo de livro que considero ideal para apresentar o universo de fantasia para adolescentes Co escrito pela autora de As Brumas de Avalon, Glenraven um romance legal de ler, onde duas mulheres do nosso mundo s o jogadas em outro e tem que lidar com as adversidade para sobreviver e entender tudo o que est acontecendo a sua volta uma hist ria para crian as e adolescentes bem simples, mas encantadora Ideal para passar o tempo.
This book was co written by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Holly Lisle, and there s a second book in the series which I m also going to get my hands on so I can find out what happened to JayJay and Mathiall.
Time honored concept of getting into something unexpected finding the lost way from our world Done well the adventure is one to remember I think of the Thomas Covenant books and I don t have any inclination to repeat that exasperating experience but this was much satisfying.
One of my all time favorite comfort food books you know those books you always return to when you need something familiar, comforting, and escapist This book is it I can t quite give it 5 stars but 4.5 would be close.
Need an escape This is it Needed some backstory, and now I want another But other than that I liked it.
Kinda makes you check the travel book shelf a bit closely I mean if there were one with a cover by Clyde Caldwell, I d have to start saving some dinero
C est une classique histoire de fantasy sans grand int r t en soi, remplie de clich s mais ce n est pas d sagr able lire et finalement, je me suis laiss e prendre au jeu.
