Has anyone read this? I'm on book one, The White Mare, and am really enjoying it!

I really enjoyed all three as well!

There are reviews for all three books. Here's a link to the review thread for The White Mare

No, but looking forward to reading it. My TBR groaneth

The White Mare was a fun adventure (the warriors and bards were great and the mysticism just seemed so natural) and I'm now awaiting the delivery of the second novel in the trilogy.

I'm glad to hear good things about the series. I have these in my TBR, and hope to get to them this year!

Yours groaneth and I feel ashamed every time I add to mine. I feel like I have to do it in secret. :rolleyes:

I hear ya!! I'm running out of shelf space and I refuse to buy another book shelf. That would just be another few years added on the Mt. TBR!!!

Just read the review of this. Sounds very interesting.

Think a trip to a certain furniture store is inevitable. Need another bookshelf! :eek:
