This is the second book by new author Elenor Gill and follows her first book In the Shadow of Trees published in May 2006 Set in the UK the story takes place in the months following the sudden death of Miriam mother of Hannah and grandmother of the protagonist Clionha who are both dee A really original read that weaves Celtic folklore amongst complicated family dynamics The death of her eccentric but beloved grandmother Miriam sets Chloe on a path that is not of her choosing Used to playing a character to please others and expected to follow in her grandmother's footsteps she is faced with a difficult decision involving a mysterious stranger that has repercussions beyond her own world I enjoyed the themes in the novel but was disappointed it didn't explore the folklore a little I also found the odd way the family had of referring to each other by first names a little jarring and also couldn't figure out why it was set in 1999 While one publisher described the book as targeted at female readers of romantic fiction I really enjoyed it for its originality I loath romantic fiction

MOBI Miriam's Talisman

Miriam's TalismanPly affected by her death but in very different ways When Miriam leaves everything she owns to Clionha including a distinctive silver amulet Clionha begins to move in a shadow world which leaves her friends and family concerned for her mental health Sought out after her grandmother's I think the author was aiming to build the sense of mystery and atmosphere bit I just couldn't get into it really I was bored most of the time The pace was just too slow with too few clues as to where it was all going It felt like the author knew things and was assuming too much so that it was frustrating rather than intriguingNone of the charcters were particulary likeable either Chloe was too spineless for my taste Hannah too nasty Paul and David both jerks and Iolair creepy than anything I did like the actual premise though the fae tale of love found that interesting which is what saved it from getting one star
