  • Jennie Webb
    I loved going to Eirlandia, and also back to Avalon, with Stephen Lawhead! (I've read all of his fiction books except for a few of the children's.) I really enjoyed the characters and the story, even if it does leave you hanging a bit at the end -I hope there will be a next one!! There are some surprising twists near/at the end, which I rather liked! :) I loved Conor, and also Rhiannon, though I wasn't sure how I'd feel about her at the beginning...

    I have read all of Lawhead's work. He is my favorite author, and this is a fine work. However, it was not as good as many of his previous works. The story is interesting and the characters are very good. The land of Eirlandia is bright and imaginative, and the faery presence adds a good deal of depth. There is a good amount of intrigue and suspicious behavior going on with some of the characters, but it never feels fully developed. One of my favo...

    In the Region of the Summer StarsLawhead moves me and makes me think, In the Region of the Summer Stars does not disappoint and yet begs the question when in the series will we see the familiar links between the far off past and the understanding of this world from the perspective of the learned and yet incomplete knowledge of the creator and how that will be introduced to include what we know of Jesus. I laughed, I cried, I got mad, I was afraid...

    For years, Ireland has been striving to be rid of the Scalda, invaders to the southern shore. When doubting the intentions of Lord Breda, Connor finds himself stumbling onto a plot far greater than he imagined. Seeking truth, he becomes an outcast and ends up tumbling into a far greater adventure than he could imagine..Based purely on Irish myth, Lawhead has fashioned a story possibly as great as His Pentagon cycle, and yet, at least with this fi...

    So disappointed in this book. I’ve loved much of Lawheads content in the past. This book was slow and the storyline was nonsensical at times. There was never a flow to the book and I had to slog my way through it. There was a lot of potential but it just fell flat. Very flat.

    I have enjoyed readng all of Stephen Lawhead's books and I enjoyed reading this one as well. Some of the character personalities were reminiscent of characters in Lord of the Rings. I would have given this book 5 stars but there were quite a few words that I didn't know. I didn't know if they were made up or actual archaic Irish / English words that I couldn't find a definition for. I did my best to put them in the context of the sentence. All-in...
