SPOILER ALERT I was so miffed at this book I adore Juliet Marillier, and she has a way of writing something that stirs your soul and makes you ache I was so furious with the female character that I could have slapped her I suppose that is an accomplishment of the author s writing skills.I fell in love with Faolan from pretty much the beginning of the book I dug him in The Dark Mirror, but of course Blade of Fortriu reveals far about his character and personality I loved how he grew fond of and [...]
After finding The Dark Mirror somewhat lacking, it took me awhile to get around to reading its sequel, Blade of Fortriu, but I wasn t disappointed surprisingly, this middle book is actually the best of the trilogy It begins five years after Bridei s rise to kingship, just as he s about to go to war with the Gaelic kingdom of Dalriada because well, because they re Gaels and therefore should go back to Ireland He sends off the hostage princess Ana as a bribe for the mysterious chieftain Alpin of B [...]
Easily the best in the trilogy I am happy that it was the first book in the trilogy that I read I read the others simply because I wanted to fill in some gaps and cravings to know But it wasn t crucial.I give the book a high rating because I love Faolan and his character developement He was shown in his strengths and chiseled away to show his weaknesses I could relate to his desire to run away from his pain as well and put it all behind him SPOILER ALERT The one thing I massively hated Drustan [...]
This one is not my favorite Juliet Marillier novel I loved everything but the female protagonist and the love story She had such potential, starting out, but then, in an unexpected twist, she falls in love with a pretty face, at first sight it feels a bit contrived The writing, the scene descriptions, the plot, the other characters all excellent, and I did really enjoy it I do really look forward to the next in the series, which continues the story of the main male protagonist, who is really inc [...]
I like this book as it focused on two relatively minor characters in the first book None of the previously developed characters were forgotten and neglected The fleshing out of Ana and Faolan were well done.
review in english below Este segundo livro d As Cr nicas de Bridei agradou me bastante mais do que o primeiro Faolan um personagem e p ras e merecia o destaque que lhe dado Tamb m gostei de ser enganada quanto hist ria de amor que estava a congeminar na minha cabe a.Quanto tradu o o tradutor deste 2 livro n o o mesmo do 1 , n o me parece que mestre seja a tradu o mais apropriada para master Mas ao menos aqui o Guardi o das Chamas n o sofreu uma mudan a de sexo passei todo o 1 livro irritada com [...]
I don t know if it s me or Juliet Marillier who had changed Either way, I was really disappointed in this book, the sequel to The Dark Mirror, which I thoroughly enjoyed The narrative was completely weighed down by melodrama and clunky exposition.
Juliet Marillier uma das minhas escritoras preferidas

Depois de um primeiro volume que n o me conseguiu agarrar eis que o segundo volume das Cr nicas de Bridei me agarrou de tal forma que tenho pena de j ter terminado Neste segundo volume a hist ria centra se em Ana e na sua viagem, na qual acompanhado por Faolan, duas personagens j introduzidas no livro anterior que mereceram um maior destaque fabuloso vermos a forma como a personagem Ana evolui ao longo do livro assim, como termos uma maior consci ncia da humanidade de Faolan Um livro que sem d v [...]
Melhor que o primeiro volume mas um pouco diferente daquilo que esperava.Opini o completa em breve.Nota sobre esta edi o a revis o do livro n o est grande coisa Tudo bem que uma edi o de bolso mais barata que apenas comprei porque a normal est esgotada mas podiam ter mais aten o Pontua o fora do s tio, palavras trocadas lembro me por exemplo de um ele em vez de um ela , entre outros que n o memorizei , etc Nota se a falta de cuidado.
Amazing continuation, way better than te first one Faolan, a character impossible not to love Death, of course, should not be feared, but awaited with certain wonder To die was to step across a threshold into a new world, unknown, unimaginable.
It s been five years since Bridei became king and he s anxious to banish the Christian Gaels from Fortriu s western shores Success depends upon many carefully planned and executed offenses such as false intelligence, surprise, and an alliance or at least a vow of neutrality from the wild Caitt The only way to do so seems through a strategic marriage between the princess of the Light Isles and the Caitt chieftain Alpin Although Ana s been a royal hostage most of her life, she is loyal to Bridei a [...]
The previous book in the series was a fantastic beginning that led me to pick up the second book immediately Unfortunately, as much as Marillier is one of my favorite authors, this book felt much lacking as far as characters went.Most of my issues come from the character Drustan He felt extremely underdeveloped to me It seemed like the thing everyone thinks about him is, Wow he s so beautiful like wow I can t even this guy is hot It s over the top such that this is the first thing everyone thin [...]
WOW what an adventure King Bridei embarks on a campaign to rid Fortriu of the Christian Gael s This is a major undertaking involving all the chieftains of Fortriu One of his ploys for success is to get the chieftain of Briar Wood Alpin and his huge fighting force to stand against the Gael s To do this he offers marraige to his ward hostage , Ana The journey to Briar Wood is a major focus of the book Ana and Faolan King s assassin set off with a guard in hopes of a treaty which would basically pr [...]
It was hard to pick a rating for this book It had so much potential I really enjoyed the first part of the book and could hardly put it down Everything was going swimmingly until Drustan and Ana met Oh the cheese From then on I had a hard time liking Ana Why is she so drawn to Drustan To me he seemed infantile Despite Marillier describing the intelligence in his eyes, his words and behaviors only showed a childlike ignorance Also, I have a very hard time with love at first sight nonsense Their r [...]
Spoilers sort of To echo the sentiments of others, Blade of Fortriu receives three stars because of Marillier s incredible talent HOWEVER, I am incredibly annoyed and displeased by the ending While I appreciate how Ana s love life took a different turn than I was expecting the love connection is usually pretty obvious , the ensuing relationship made me gag It was so superficial and obnoxious this guy is SUPER MEGA HOT, also amazingly intelligent, also has literally no faults, and he ends up bein [...]
I am very into romance I tend to judge a book by it s romantic dialogue, which isn t very intelligent or fair, but that s me This is the reason this book got 3 stars for me I wasn t at all pleased with the romance in this book I felt like Ana chose the wrong man and I just couldn t enjoy it for that reason alone.
Que hist ria t o linda, t o Marillieresca Estou absolutamente entusiasmada para ler o terceiro livro que acho que vai ser o meu favorito, tenho c um feeling
It s rare that the second book in a series is better than the first, but this book is leaps and bounds better than Dark Mirrord I loved Dark Mirror.
Depois dos acontecimentos decorridos em O Espelho Negro, este livro apresenta nos uma hist ria diferente Cinco anos passados desde os acontecimentos anteriores, A Espada de Fortriu n o s nos d a conhecer a nova vida de Bridei e Tuala como se centra em duas das anteriores personagens secund rias que me suscitaram mais curiosidade Ana e Faolan Num espa o diferente e com uma narrativa ainda mais forte e introspectiva, Marillier volta a surpreender e a mostrar que n o s Sevenwaters que ela sabe escr [...]

Let me start off by saying that Juliet Marillier can sometimes be a little formulaic That s not to say her books are not enjoyable for all their predictability they are extremely enjoyable I thought this book was going to follow that same pattern A journey, a man with a dark, haunted, secret past and the woman who brings him back to light, seen in Son of Shadows, Heir to Sevenwaters and to an extent, Seer of Sevenwaters However, this book is not so simple In every other Marillier book, there has [...]
SPOILER ALERT Faolan is one of my fav characters ever It s been years since a character has meant this much to me I love Juliet s writing, and this trilogy is amazing I m only sorry about the ending I don t understand why authors create imaginary universes where magic can happen, and love happens, but monogamy is always the possible ending Ana loves two men, but she can only have one Why Why is this the only happy ending Clearly we see that she is loosing one of them, no matter what she chooses [...]
I thought this book started out wonderfully The story line moved forward at a good pace and wasn t drowning in details like the first book Also I LOVED Faolan, one of favorite of Marillier s leading men But it all kind of fizzled out toward the end The whole story went in a direction that I wasn t expecting and didn t like Once I could see it was going there I had a hard time being interested in the rest of the book Lots of skimming through the last 1 4 of it There were other things I didn t lik [...]
I liked this one much better than the first in the series The characters were much exciting and likable, even Broichan who I couldnt stand in the first book Foalan, I totally loved in this one, but I also felt really bad for him too At first I didn t like where Mariller was going with this story, and then I reconciled myself to the inevitable no matter how strange, and even somewhat disappointing it was.
I think I would have enjoyed this one than the first one if it hadn t been for an instalove moment that messed up what seemed like real love that was still developing I m not sure I can forgive her for that after doing such a good job pulling Tuala and Bridei together in the first book Full review to come.
j a minha 2 releitura e pelo prazer que me deu duvido que seja a ltimos Tudo se mant m, a for a imposs vel de Deord, o sofrimento de Faolon, a coragem de Ana Em conjunto com a sequela que infelizmente neste momento est emprestada, sen o li a j de seguida facilmente ser o meu livro favorito.
I waited nearly a year between reading The Dark Mirror and this book I regret waiting I enjoyed Blade of Fortriu so much and found myself completely engulfed in the story and world
