SoI don't know I had a somewhat difficult time with this one I'd never heard anything about the Irish legend this book is based on but I enjoyed the main plotline of the story The problem I had was with the way it's written Somehow Watson just completely failed to draw me in I didn't end up caring about any of the characters except for Ardan pretty sure he's NOT really the one I was supposed to be focused on and I found myself skimming A LOT And saying blah blah blah get on with it in my head It's not that the writing was BAD it just seemedvery distancing I suppose and so I had a hard time actually feeling the things she was describing even the things that probably COULD have had me BAWLING MY EYES OUT if they had been written in a different way And it felt like it just took too long for things to happen so by the time they finally did I'd seen them coming from a mile away and already gotten bored in the meantime I also got REALLY tired of the word rump waaaay too many mentions of Dierdre's superfine bum Two stars might seem a bit harsh especially since there were some things I enjoyed about it But my overall impression is one of slogging through so I don't feel I can say I actually LIKED it That said I can see how some people might really love this one there is a lot of beauty to it It just is written in a way that doesn't totally work for me that's all

Summary The Swan Maiden

The Swan MaidenDs finds herself at the side of three rebellious young warriors Among them is the handsome Naisi His heart charged with bitterness toward the aging king and growing in love for the defiant girl Naisi will lead Deirdre far from Ulster and into a war of wits swords and spirit that will take a lifetime to wageBrimming with life and its lusts here is a soaring tale of enchantment and eternal passions and of a woman who became legend. I was so excited to read this book but was very disappointed It was rather dull and historical fiction than fantasy I hate historical fiction There was no richness to the language or depth to the characters to draw me in The men were stubborn and honor bound The girl was wild with unnatural druid skills that I guess were supposed to make her mysterious and fey Instead I found her to be unreliable as a character I never knew if she would react sensibly to something or not The love story was characterized by sexual tension taken right out of a bad romance novel This is supposed to be an epic story of a love that takes down a mighty king At least make the sex scenes worthy of that type of love Overall I found the politics dull the characters pretty stock and the romance underwhelming
