Inhaltsangabe zu „When Women Were Warriors Book I“ von Catherine M. Wilson

Winner, 2010 EPIC Ebook Award for fiction in the Mainstream category. "The strong, supple prose on display in all three novels, the intelligence of the plotting, and the skillfully varied pacing make this a standout trilogy--highly recommended" --from a review by the Historical Novel Society "Breathtakingly gorgeous writing … a multi-layered tale of such depth, breadth and insight that it was very nearly a spiritual experience…" --from a review by T. T. Thomas on "…there’s no ring of power or glowing sword of specialness; the magic, like the tone of the book, is quiet. It feels real." --from a blog review on livejournal When she was a child, the author happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began, "Once upon a time, a young man went out to seek his fortune." But she would have been delighted to discover even one story like that with a female protagonist. Since she never did find the story she was looking for all those years ago, she decided to write it. In Book I of the trilogy, Tamras arrives in Merin’s house to begin her apprenticeship as a warrior, but her small stature causes many, including Tamras herself, to doubt that she will ever become a competent swordswoman. To make matters worse, the Lady Merin assigns her the position of companion, little more than a personal servant, to a woman who came to Merin’s house, seemingly out of nowhere, the previous winter, and this stranger wants nothing to do with Tamras. "…Both men and women of all persuasions seem to love these books... Very rare. Bravo, Bravo, Bravo!" --from a review by T. T. Thomas on "Think Beowulf--only comprehensible and with girls." --from a review on the blog, The Rainbow Reader, by Baxter Clare Trautman

Stöbern in Fantasy

Vier Farben der Magie

Kell und Lila sind mega tolle Charaktere! Freue mich schon auf den 2. Band, kann den Hype aber nicht ganz nachvollziehen.


Das Erbe der Macht - Schattenchronik 4 - Allmacht

Absolut fesselnd! Mir ist die Luft weggeblieben.


Palace of Glass - Die Wächterin

Tolle Welt, spannende Handlung, aber nicht immer konnte die Geschichte mich ganz packen.


Das Verlangen des Jägers

Interessante Geschichte allerdings fehlte mir die meiste Zeit die Spannung.


Animant Crumbs Staubchronik

Traumhafte Geschichte, bei der man mitfühlen kann.
