    This is The Second Tale of Nedao the first of which is To the Haunted Mountains and both are sob worthy but it is the poignancy of the romantic through line that gets me the most Yes, I cried at the end of the first book, but it is the tugging on the heartstrings from that book to this one, which highlights love lost and love s possibilities in a muchabrasive form, that really makes me cry Like Cherry Wilder, Emerson is a distance writer You feel as if you are floating above her books This is The Second Tale of Nedao the first of which is To the Haunted Mountains and both are sob worthy but it is the poignancy of the romantic through line that gets me the most Yes, I cried at the end of the first book, but it is the tugging on the heartstrings from that book to this one, which highlights love lost and love s possibilities in a muchabrasive form, that really makes me cry Like Cherry Wilder, Emerson is a distance writer You feel as if you are floating above her books as you read them There is a lot of atmosphere in these books, but when we do get those flashes of intimate focus they are all the brighter for her style

    DISCLAIMER This is a review from the child I was at least a decade ago Bear that in mindThis was one of the first fantasy genre novels I can remember reading for myself My parents had always made the Tolkien staples available to me, and I knew those stories so well that I didn t actually both to READ them until well into my late teens Sure, there were plenty of Anne McCaffrey titles lying around the house, and there was a lot of talk about a man named Terry Brooks, but again, those storie DISCLAIMER This is a review from the child I was at least a decade ago Bear that in mindThis was one of the first fantasy genre novels I can remember reading for myself My parents had always made the Tolkien staples available to me, and I knew those stories so well that I didn t actually both to READ them until well into my late teens Sure, there were plenty of Anne McCaffrey titles lying around the house, and there was a lot of talk about a man named Terry Brooks, but again, those stories came to me mostly through the interpretation of my parents When my mother brought this book home, especially for me because there s a map on the inside cover, I thought you d be into it it was the first time I was really able to crawl off into a corner by myself and build the world up in my own head, from a direct, personal reading It was a Monumental Happening The characters and world of this novel stuck with me in perfect clarity for a long, long time and laid the foundation of what I look for in good fantasy fiction Also, having a strong female hero to read about at a time in my life long before I even realized that was an issue in the world really made a lasting impression on me And, come on Narrated by a cat Can t go wrong there.I will one day have to read this novel again, and formof an adult opinion of it But for now, I can say that I loved it then, that it pushed some of the major blocks of my thinking on genre literature into place, and that it inspired a whole new set of adventures in my young, plastic imagination The strong central character here set a standard for me that I hope never fades from my mind Every time I see the cover of this book, I m reminded of what a good fantasy adventure should be I think that deserves five stars
