Dreamer's Pool

In exchange for help escaping her long and wrongful imprisonment, embittered magical healer Blackthorn has vowed to set aside her bid for vengeance against a man.  Followed by a former prison mate, a silent hulk of a man named Grim, she travels north to Dalriada. There she’ll live on the fringe of a mysterious forest, duty bound for seven years to assist anyone who asks for her help.

Oran, crown prince of Dalriada, has waited anxiously for the arrival of his future bride, Lady Flidais. He knows her only from a portrait and sweetly poetic correspondence that have convinced him Flidais is his destined true love. But Oran discovers letters can lie. For although his intended exactly resembles her portrait, her brutality upon arrival proves she is nothing like the sensitive woman of the letters.

With the strategic marriage imminent, Oran sees no way out of his dilemma. Word has spread that Blackthorn possesses a remarkable gift for solving knotty problems, so the prince asks her for help. To save Oran from his treacherous nuptials, Blackthorn and Grim will need all their resources: courage, ingenuity, leaps of deduction, and more than a little magic.
This was a fabulous book. The reader 'enters' Ancient Ireland, and gets caught in a  web of intrigue, magic, love, sex....with 3 narrators, the story develops to an extreme of suspense and magic. Every char is important, every char has a purpose and its place on the story. I cannot tell you more, or I'd ruin everything.. Just read it, it's magnificent.

  1. Ois,

    Não sei o que estás a dizer mas pelo que percebi este livro voltou a apresentar a escritora no seu melhor e só posso ficar muito contente pois é uma escritora pela qual tenho muito carinho ;)


  2. Não posso adiantar muito, é a história de uma healer que viaja para onde um Fey a mandou, se ela não fosse morria, portanto ela foi...

    mas a magia da escrita dela é impressionante


  3. Fico muito contente que volte a ser a Juliet que tantos momentos nos proporcionou :)
