Ardinéa

Rated 4.00/5 based on 4 reviews
A lively and heartfelt retelling of the Tam Lin legend... and far beyond. A mythical island set somewhere between the Dark Ages and Middle Earth is the setting for this adventure-romance. Action, romance, poetry, and even an epic battle scene make Ardinéa a highly satisfying read!

Review by: Susan Skylark on March 18, 2013 :
Beautiful, lyrical, intriguing. A charming escape into Fairyland with a curious twist on elf-lore. For the most part, the Christian undertone is a lovely background to the story, except for one small incident near the middle where the main character forgets for a time that she is not a street evangelist; it was quite jarring and nearly made me drop the book in dismay, for it did not fit the character or the story at all, but the story quickly found its footing and finished well. It has been years since a book kept me reading after bedtime, this story certainly kept me up late! Highly recommended.

I have only read fifty pages but so far quite good. The words have a nice flow. The story has a genuine feel about it.

Review by: Fay Knight on Aug. 18, 2011 :
Religious proselytising masquerading as fantasy fiction, with a vague rambling plotline that doesn't hang together at all well. It was as if the writer had attempted to put parts together from an assortment of her favourite stories; which *might* have worked if she'd sat down and given the idea enough structure to start with.

Nonetheless the sheer conviction behind it all kept me reading to the end; and she writes well in spite of the incoherent plot. Worth a read if you have an idle afternoon to kill, but don't expect it to deepen your understanding of either fairy folklore or Christian doctrine.
