5.0 out of 5 stars Norse and Celtic fantasy story, 10 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Niamh of the Golden Hair (Manannan Trilogy Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Niamh of the Golden Hair was recommended to me. This is the first book I have read by this author and would certainly like to read more. The novel is well written and researched. I thought the prose flowed well and there was just enough tension to keep me interested. The book stood on its own as I haven't read the first book of the trilogy as yet. Historical novels of any period are not my preferred reading or interest but I did find that I was transported back in time to that far away and violent era of Viking raids and isolated Celtic communities who lived in the shadow, one assumes, of that constant fear.
Niamh's character is reasonably portrayed. Herself an outcast in her own community, she eventually finds happiness with the Norseman, Olaf and subsequently discovers the secrets of her own life when she is reunited with her magician father, McLir. I was sometimes confused with the number of characters and names but that didn't alter my overall enjoyment of this entertaining piece of fiction.
