Paxson Ö The White Raven ePUB º The White PDF or Ö white mobile, raven download, The White pdf, The White Raven EpubEdited to mention since people are telling me the other reviews didn't specify that the perpetrator of the triggery behavior is not the man the heroine ends up with Mark is coolI’m going to explain the premise pitch and demographics of this book first so you know whether or not you’re interested and then give you the recipe blog ramble afterward so that you aren’t sitting there for the first minute of reading wondering where this is all going The White Raven is a Dark Ages fantasy novel that’s heavy on the intimate relationships between characters and the politics between tiny states and relatively light on the actual magic You could almost call the magical elements uasi pagan inspie instead of ordinary fantasy as they reflect the setting’s religious traditions The romantic end game is a hunky older King Woobie archetype which was my main draw so if you’re into grizzled sad powerful charistmatic men who need comforting I can recommend thi

Paxson Ö The White Raven ePUB º The White PDF or Ö white mobile, raven download, The White pdf, The White Raven EpubDoes anyone else feel that Tristan and Isolde were the two most selfish people on the planet? So they drink a love potion you'd think that two reasonably intelligent people could grit their teeth say You know I hated you five minutes ago and now you're the moon in my sky something's gone wrong here But nooooo they proceed to destroy a kingdom cuckold a King who'd done nothing to either of them and lie to everyone just so they can carry on their torrid affair that ends in tragedyFortunately in this book we have Branwen Branwen is Esseilte's Isolde's handmaid and in a usual telling of this t

    PDF Diana L. Paxson Ö The White Raven ePUB º The White PDF or Ö white mobile, raven download, The White pdf, The White Raven EpubDreadful The uniue talent of an author to take one of the most romantic heartbreaking legends of all time and make it completely boring is something I’ve thankfully rarely experienced and hope never to do again This book just plods along I kept thinking I’ll read just one chapter maybe it will get better And by the time I realized it was never going to get better I was halfway through and decided I might as well push myself and finish it The last thirty pages make it a two star read instead of one star but can't rescue the rest of the messThe weird spellings of people and place names was difficult to read I kept having to stop and think who is this where is this? Why is this spelled like this and how do you pronounce it? Major distractionSurely some of the

    PDF Diana L. Paxson Ö The White Raven ePUB º The White PDF or Ö white mobile, raven download, The White pdf, The White Raven EpubI loved this book in high school when I first read it Nearly 20 years later I picked it up again to see if I still do I do The beginning has some standard set the stage scenes that felt blah blah get on with it but the story builds from there Paxon's descriptions of setting are beautiful and relevant to the settingstagetime period and her characters are very interesting explorations of legendary figures Sometimes I get tired of the main character

Paxson Ö The White Raven ePUB º The White PDF or Ö white mobile, raven download, The White pdf, The White Raven Epub45 stars out of 5I thought that this story was very lovely 'The White Raven' tells the tale of Drustan and Esseilte Tristan and Isoldefrom the point of view of Esseilte's cousin and personal servant Branwen While we are all familiar with the tragic fate of the star crossed lovers Paxson introduces the idea that it would take a devoted and loving third party to keep the machinations of such a forbidden love from unraveling This story is told with her voiceLushly written with haunting sometimes achingly beautiful scenes I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Celtic mythology and Arthurian legend
