    Far and away one of my favorite series of all time The kingdom series is brilliant Not only for the very subtle modern allegories tucked into a generally well written fairytalefablemedieval ish story but this series has two assets that I loveA You don't have to read them in order They are very loosely tied together through tiny hints throughout the books I had many ooohhhhhhhhh moments when you figure out how they relate I think this might be my favorite part of the seriesB You don't have to learn a new language world history or geography to understand the story It is so brilliantly simple north south east west with characters written in the limited third person When they don't know something you don't either eliminating a ton of unimportant details that usually bog down fantasy books Characters also dont have intense histories that have to be relayed to the reader You are right there with them on their journey learning about them as you go The stories are great twisting and unpredictable I recommend them to everyone who likes a good set of books

    Innkeeper's daughter check Made up 16th century England ish land check Implausible romance check Okay so if you're only going to read one Cynthia Voigt book make it one of the Tillerman novels and not this one But good LORD I love this story It's everything a completely un thought provoking Anglocentric young adult historical fantasy should be slightly dark exciting hopelessly romantic and completely satisfying As far as tropes go I could do without the childlike giant with heart of gold one a little complexity PLEASE Ms Voigt but really this whole book is about well executed formula and it so works for me

    Ultimately this is uiet and satisfying but for a good half of the book I was wondering why I should care about this story and these people It turns out that an acknowledgement of the time you're spending on a book by an author you like isn't enough to actually invest you in the story I wish there'd been initially emotion purpose direction Instead I was left with the uncomfortable feeling that these terrible experiences were glossed over because they were devices meant to function as eualizers

    Like many other reviewers this novel has been sitting on my shelf for years I remember reading this novel as a teen and remembered LOVING it But with all books revisited would I feel the same way many years later? It turns out this book was so much better than I previously thought All I remembered was that the girl Birle met the boy Orien on a boat How could I forget the rest? I will not make that mistake again In the past two years I’ve come across so many very well written and intricate plot and character developed stories I will be forever grateful to so many amazing authors I’ve discovered

    Cynthia Voigt’s On Fortune’s Wheel tells the story of two runaway teenagers and their eventual return to their homeland The central character Birle is the younger of the two and she follows the elder Orien who is escaping from his hereditary earldom to leave it to his brother Birle though seemingly mature and about to be married actually seems childlike than she realizes—she tells Orien of her machinations to avoid the chores assigned by her stepmother Nan or to foist the work on another family member proudly even when Orien suggests shirking isn’t something to be proud of She insists Nan treated her like a servant but it seems clearer from her recollections that her work was merely that necessary from a child of a family that must run an inn to earn its keep and her subseuent experiences lead her to the conclusion that not only is work a common but a necessary and desirable part of life Birle seems to have little affection or concern for her family at the inn including her father and half sisters and never seems to miss or even regret the pain she may be causing them suggesting an immature level of empathy—especially when at her return in the end of the book Nan drops everything she’s doing to go see Birle—her home was a loving one however she may have felt at the time that the life didn’t suit her However Birle’s role in the story is wonderful When Orien who isn’t entirely honest with Birle about the situation he left behind in his earldom and does as poor a job gauging his brother’s intentions as Birle does with her family runs cockily off into the unknown beyond the borders of the Kingdom and promptly gets himself and tagalong Birle captured by slavers it is Birle who manages in part through the luck the title contemplates of being purchased by a gentle and well protected master to locate Orien learn of the precarious political situation in the city and to get them safely out before the threatened invading armies arrive She learns the information she copies for her master and thus is able not only to use herbal remedies to care for and heal Orien when he’s dying of the infection in his brand but to begin to grow her own herbs and dispense remedies after she is established in her grandparents’ holding Birle though young and immature still manages to play the role of a strong heroic character well

    I just finished reading Tuck Everlasting which had this recurring wheel imagery and it reminded me of a book I completely loved when I was twelve or so I was reminded of it just because of the wheel thing not because they're similar books So I type in wheel and fortune and up it popped this Cynthia Voigt book It's not the same cover as the one I had but I know it's the same book because I remember having a pretend boyfriend named Orien He was dreamy I think I can even remember the last line of this book which is pretty ridiculous considering I read it once and that was like 15 years ago I'm putting it on my Twilight alternative shelf because I remember it giving my young girl heart major pangs

  8. Sabrina Sabrina says:

    I blazed through this book in two days Birle herself was an utterly compelling heroine childlike flawed and human brave loyal and loving Orien frustrated me at times and at times made me swoon The story itself is exciting and fraught with danger The romance and its flowering threaded gently through the plot and provided sound motivation I also loved how as the wheel of fortune turns the characters themselves make their own fortune The prose was beautiful without being overly ornate although I love ornate gilded prose Wonderful storytelling wonderful story

  9. Kathryn Kathryn says:

    This book was just okay I didn't love it There was a strange writing style that didn't resonate with me The book was from one person's perspective but the writing style almost gave me a kind of distant feel instead of really interesting the reader into the events It's difficult to describe but I almost got the sense that the main character had no emotional feelings and was just trying to pretend she did This wasn't the case; the issue was just the writing style She clearly had feelings but the way they were written was almost delayed I had to be told what she was feeling because it's not really shown I think maybe the issue was that the characters aren't really described by their body language facial expressions of tone of voice This still doesn't really keep my interest very well most of the time especially when the events were somehow also portrayed in mundane boring ways I almost put this book down forever about thirty pages in because nothing was happening that was interesting despite two characters leaving behind the lives they're always known to go on an adventure But even their adventure left much to be desiredI'm not sure whether I'm glad or not that I didn't DNF the book I'm not upset I finished it but I wouldn't recommend it except to people who want a small simple story with very little emotional value that isn't super long The book is fine but it's not for me
