    About "Lynn Kurland"

    1. Lynn Kurland

      Lynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of well, trouble She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it After returning to the mainland, her writing gave way to training in classical music and Clinton, who had been felled with arrows, eaten by fish and sent tumbling off cars, was put aside for operatic heroes in tights.Somehow during high school, in between bouts of Verdi and Rossini, she managed to find time to submerge herself in equal parts Tolkien, Barbara Cartland and Mad Magazine During college, a chance encounter with a large library stack of romances left her hooked, gave her the courage to put pen to paper herself, and finally satisfied that need for a little bit of fantasy with a whole lot of romance

    1. I m not going to lie I am a little disappointed in Gift of Magic This is the book that I have been waiting for This was the book that was going to make all the wait worthwhile This was going to be Ruith and Sarah s chance to shine But, I don t think it is I think that, in the world of the Nine Kingdoms, Ruith and Sarah are destined to be shadows And for me, from my place as captain of Team Ruith, it is a little upsetting.So, we left Sarah and Ruith at a pretty good spot At the end of Spellweaver [...]


    2. I was incredibly pleased that this was heaps better than the last two books in the series It totally captured my interest from start to finish and I couldn t be happier about it It was so interesting to finally see both groups merge together and meet each other, it made for some quite interesting situations And then the chase for the spells and what finally awaited them at the end of the trail was just mind blowing It was kind of hinted at all along but I honestly didn t see how it could really [...]


    3. I haven t been impressed with the second Nine Kingdoms trilogy, so it was no surprise I didn t care for the final book I got tired of things being blatantly stated and then two paragraphs later everyone is startled by the same revelation Or the never ending admiration for everyone s beauty Or the repeated doubts of overtly stated love Or the fact that everyone is royalty but no one wants to be I was excited that Miach and Morgan showed up, but they weren t in it nearly long enough And I clearly [...]


    4. I have been caught up in this series for awhile now and enjoyed every minute of it This the third book of the second trilogy, each trilogy featuring a different couple, but they are taking place almost at the same time and in the same world The characters, both the major and the minor ones are interwoven between the stories I have read some reviews of these books from people who did not care for them, but they seem to very often just not be their kind of books This series is a romance but a they [...]


    5. In one word, this book was a disappointing finish to the story of Ruithneadh and Sarah in particular and the tale of the Nine Kingdoms is general.It s not that the story wasn t well told It was The writing was truly beautiful, and the world sprawled out like only epic fantasy can, and the names were right It is a pet peeve of mine to read fantasy with names that sound fake it spoils the whole story Well, the names of people and places in this series, although unpronounceable, fit perfectly So it [...]


    6. 5 June 2015 3.79 on Kindle3.5 Stars I think Full review to come.Any questions you had from the first two books answered Fear not, all the threads that were hanging are resolved The characters are, as always, charming and lovable Great scene, highly anticipated near the beginning of the book that had me tearing up a bit.Some frustrations though Sarah s reluctance to accept and return Ruith s feelings and love got old fairly quickly in this book Her desire to keep him at half an arm s length was d [...]


    7. This book just wasn t up to the same standards as the rest of the series Problems were solved too quickly and easily to be realistic It was like Lynn Kurland lost the motivation and momentum to finish the series with the same gusto as the rest of the books I also didn t feel as attached to Ruith and Sarah and their plight as I did in previous books.That being said, it was still an entertaining story, mostly because of the guest appearances and because I LOVED the other books in the series.But mo [...]


    8. I had never heard of Lynn Kurland until I came across the first book in the Nine Kingdoms series back in 2009 She writes historical time travel romance and that s not a genre I read.This is the last book in this trilogy and the sixth book in this series I really, really wanted to love it The first three books Star of the Morning, The Mage s Daughter, and Princess of the Sword have become three of my favorite books While they are not as detailed or intricate as most fantasy books I read, I fell i [...]


    9. Okay, so I really love Lynn Kurland s writingually I had a hard time with this book Like a lot of people I read her books right when they come out So I have read tons of books in the meantime and had a really, really hard time keeping track of who was who The beginning of the book really needs a map to help us keep track of where we are, have been and going AND, it would have been nice to have some sort of genealogy sheet at the beginning or end to remind us who is who like she has in her de Pia [...]


    10. 4.5 stars Slightly disappointed by this book I was expecting of Sarah s heritage, as well as Ruith and Sarah s growing romance Although the book was captivating, something was missingD I totally knew view spoiler Thoir hide spoiler was evil, it s always the person one tends to like on the surface I was also mildly surprised although not really that view spoiler Gair hide spoiler was alive, talk about annoying I knew there was a possibility that he was alive, but seriously how did he survive


    11. I liked her fist books in this series, but in her last few she says the same thing over and over, I got really tired of how often the main male characters are belittled and threatened and the same information is given about characters over and over I mostly just wanted to know how the series ended.


    12. I have to agree with Beth s review on this one It was definitely a sad let down from how I had imagined the conclusion to be I m giving it a 3 because I love this series and love so many of the characters, but it did not live up to Lynn Kurland s usually very high standards of writing.


    13. 65 of 2017 Ruith and Sarah s take is repetitive than Miach and Morgan s It reminds me of an elongated encore, where character reprisals happen frequently It does however set us up nicely for the next trilogy as far as exploration of the Nine Kingdoms.


    14. There was too much repetition in this final book, and it seemed to take forever for anything to happen I was fighting boredom throughout most of it I really love the rest of the Nine Kingdoms series I just wish this book had lived up to the others



    15. This book kept me riveted and then wrapped things up in what felt too easy considering the build up For this reason, I give it 4.4 out of five stars.I enjoyed it and didn t like having to put it aside for daily living tasks Still, I asked myself what is the problem and it was clear the characters didn t know for certain until 2 3 through the book, although it was hinted at early on.Several battles were fought for them rather than letting our characters face off with their foes This deflated me I [...]


    16. Sixth in the Nine Kingdoms fantasy adventure series revolving around the surviving children of a black mage The focus is on Ruith and Sarah as they quest for the lost spells of Gair of Ceangail and save the Nine Kingdoms.My Take It s all in the best style of fairy tales with major characters living a peasant s life who turn out to be princesses and princes, and each has some major baddie after them The twist is that the princess prince is perfectly willing to hunt their own food and build their [...]


    17. A nicely crafted conclusion for this trilogy the second of three trilogies in the 9 Kingdoms series Thanks to Kurland s great world building and fun character dialog, this last installment was enjoyable, but I feel Kurland is starting to get into a recycling mode from the first series a bit There is just enough difference from the first series, despite the reliable formula, to keep this interesting While I enjoyed this trilogy, I felt a bit of been there, done that Also, everyone is impossibly h [...]


    18. Just to get myself, and other s who are interested in reading this series up to speed with Ms Kurland s phenomenal writing, world building, magic, and characters I am mixing in content from a review I wrote for a previous installment of this series.To begin, I must reiterate that Lynn Kurland has a phonetic style of pen that I have seen very rarely in literature, if ever As a reader coming strictly from the Epic Fantasy genre, having never read romance until about 11 years ago, I can appreciate [...]


    19. This book was okay I honestly had a hard time getting hooked on it, but I was desperate to find out what happened to Gair The hard thing for me was that the characters seemed dull and dim And the litany of words that ensued gave me a headache at points This was not a great book, but not the worst and it did close Ruith and Sarah s story well.


    20. I can t believe that I m actually going to give a Nine Kingdoms story only three stars I don t WANT to give it three stars Lynn Kurland is my favorite author, and these Nine Kingdom books are my favorites of her books Besides, I wanted this book to be fantastic I suspect some people will rate my review as Not Helpful for doing it, too And yet, when I compare it against other books I ve already reviewed and even others she s written , I realize that it s less satisfying than others I ve already r [...]


    21. Today s post is on Gift of Magic by Lynn Kurland It is the third book in her second Nine Kingdoms trilogies It is 310 pages long and is published by Berkley Sensation The cover has one of the main character s on it looking ready for a fight There is no sex, no language, but some fantasy action in this book The story is told from the third person close perspective of the two main character s moving from one chapter to the next There Be Spoilers Ahead.From the back of the book Sarah of Doire knows [...]


    22. Lynn Kurland out does herself in this final installment of her second trilogy in the Nine Kingdoms Series From what I understand she plans on doing three trilogies all intertwining and yet can be read in any order After reading the first trilogy, I will say it works beautifully with the second one We get glimpses of what is going on throughout the Nine Kingdoms as we see some favorites from the first trilogy but it manages to avoid any confusion.As Ruithneadh of Ceangail and Sarah of Doire conti [...]


    23. I m about to launch into a bunch of things that bugged me about this book, so first allow me to say that I really enjoyed most of it The concept hunting down a bunch of spells that almost seem to have a mind of their own is well executed Many of the family relationships are enjoyable, and not typical of epic tales Most of the plot drew me in nicely Unfortunately, the closer I got to the end of the book, the lower I dipped in my estimation of the book s quality I can t help but wonder if Ms Kurla [...]


    24. Gift of Magic by Lynn KurlandParanormal Romance Jan 3rd, 20124 starsThe Gift of Magic is the sixth full length Nine Kingdoms fantasy novel This series started with the hero s sister Morgan for the first three books and has continued with the next three including this one concerning the hero, Ruith This a lovely fantasy series that is lyrical and takes its time quietly unfolding.Ruith is tortured by the damage his unscrupulous and evil father created He and his companion Sarah are on a journey to [...]


    25. I absolutely loved the first trilogy of the Nine Kingdoms series, so I immediately picked up the second trilogy as soon as I finished the first The first two books of that second trilogy were okay although not nearly as great as the first trilogy , but they kept me interested Until the third book By the second half of the third book I already felt like I had had enough Someone else was always fighting Ruith s battles and it made me feel like he really couldn t do anything himself Sarah had alway [...]


    26. Overall, Sarah and Ruith s story was a good one, the best part of it was the middle section of the story book 2 The beginning of the story felt like a repeat of the first trilogy about Miach and Morgan I felt like the ending was a bit of a letdown and slightly anti climactic and unbelievable Spoiler Alert view spoiler There was all this buildup to Gair still being alive and then Ruith just hands over the book of spells and the ring with no protest at all and seemingly no plan It seemed uncharact [...]


    27. Very imaginative, though believable Helps you to again look for the good that can come out of not very nice beginnings.


    28. The last installment in the 2nd of the Nine Kingdoms trilogy, this is the ending of Ruith Sarah s story Like many of the other reviewers, I was let down a bit by this I m firmly in the camp that feels because the build up to the big bad we all knew was going to be at the end of the journey had so little pay off the rest of the elements of the story were no longer important I hate the fact that I didn t like this , but truth be toldI m not really a fan of Sarah The only reason I have enjoyed this [...]


    29. This is book three in the series and it picks up right where book two left off Sarah and Ruith are on a quest to recover all of the pages from the evil mage Gair s spellbook As Gair was Ruith s father he is having to face his worry that somehow his father is still alive and manipulating him Sarah is still adjusting to her magical heritage, and learning to handle her abilities Luckily they have each other to lean on.I always enjoy the lyrical style of writing, the humor, and the characters in the [...]
