4.0 out of 5 stars The plot thickens..., 6 April 2006
This review is from: Cursed Towers: Book Three of the Witches of Eileanan (Mass Market Paperback)
From the back cover:
"A new age dawns in the kingdom of Eileanan, but not without resistance. Now the Righ, Lachlan the Winged, overturns his dead brother's decrees against witchcraft. But sixteen years of hatred and superstition have cloaked Eileanan in darkness...
The flame-haired twins must go their separate ways. Iseult to fight side by side with Lachlan. Isabeau to the Cursed Towers, to master her powers - and find the family she has never known."
I have omitted some of that, it gave away too much of the plot...
A slow start. The time spans covered in this book are bigger than in the first two. There are less details, everything is painted with a broader brush. It feels a bit as if she's trying get the story going faster, to lead up to a later point somewhere. But eventually the story picks up again. I especially liked to read about Isabeau's time with the Khan'coban. The end almost reads a little like the final part of a trilogy - a nice wrap-up of the main story lines. It'll be interesting to see, how the new plots develop further in the next book. Don't really want to say much, as it would give away to many things.

This review is from: Cursed Towers: Book Three of the Witches of Eileanan (Mass Market Paperback)
Following on from the beginning of the stories, it streamed perfectly into the 2nd book. There were a lot more characters brought in to this book and seemed more action, there seems to be a lot more in this book to make you sit up and take note however, there seemed to be a lot of flipping back and forward between scenes and was not as good as the 1st but, still a fantastic book and essential if you want to continue reading the series.
We see our favourites from the 1st book Isabeau, Meghan, Iseult & Jorge. This book focuses more on Iseult than Isabeau, which I found rather disappointing as I found Isabeau such a strong character and would have liked to have seen more of her in this. Iseult is so very different from Isabeau, having said that I wasn't overly fond of Iseult in the 1st book but, came to like her more in this one.
Overall a brilliant book, I just didn't like things switching so quickly but, this is stilla book I would highly recommend and can't wait to read The Cursed Towers.

This review is from: Cursed Towers: Book Three of the Witches of Eileanan (Mass Market Paperback)
My previous review of this book was in fact the second book so apologies to anyone who may have been misled.
The continuation of The Witches of Eilanan continues in The Cursed Towers, Isabeau regains her position as the main character of this book, I have to say I prefer her character to that of Iseult, Isabeau has more connection with all the main characters throughout the series.
This book ties up some loose ends from The Pool of Two Moons, this book is probably the slowest of the 1st three books but, essential if your are going to read all 6! There are some new plots here but, nothing to really get the imagination going.
I was mildly disappointed with this book but, it has not detracted me from continuing the series and hopefully the next one will be much better. That said this book is much better than some fantasies out there and the series as a whole (the one's I have read anyway) is very well written and would recommend it highly.
