Changespell Legacy book 3, finishes the story that was started in the first book. About a alternate world and the animals and people who populate it and what happens when a magic spell on the one world sends a horse to our world, and when she arrives she is a young woman. With no idea how to speak or anything. She alternates between her horse self and human, when she is transported back to her on world. And she is trying to help there to keep the magic there from getting out of whack.I have read all 3 of the books, It is best to read them in sequence, but not necessary. When I read the first one I immediately bought the second, and had to wait for the 3 one of the series, A GREAT read.
Having read a free book by Ms Durgin and loved it, I downloaded several more, Including this series. The first book is fantastic, and I couldn't wait to read more. However, Because both the second and third books have the cover of the second book, I ended up reading the 3rd book before the second. After all, it SAID it was the second book. This made the supposed second seem to assume too much and jump forward over things not explained. When I opened what I though would be the third book and read it I realized it was actually the second, and it filled in the spots that had seemed to be jumped over. Then, because I like Jess and the other characters I went back and re-read the third book. IN sequence it all made sense, and was as good as the first book.
So Amazon, fix the covers please. Readers, this series is just great, but much better if read in order. be VERY careful that you are reading the second book, as in this case you really cannot tell a book by its cover.
I never thought I would like book like Doranna Durgin has written in The Changespell Saga, but I have found them quite interesting. They are fast moving with excellent plots. Being an equestrian rider I quickly connected with the characters, especially Dun Lady Jess (the horse) and Jess the human. Everything was "spot On". I have read each book in this series and each was better than the last, all written in good taste, so I highly recommend them to anyone who loves a mystery, as well as horses, with a wee bit of romance thrown in.
It is so rare to find the perfect combination of good writing, great story telling, and an in depth knowledge of the subject. I spent much of my earlier years (wasted according to my parents!) working with and around horses. So I become impatient with those writers who use horses as plot crutches, never understanding how much richer the story could be if it's told from the point of view of those who truly understand these marvelous creatures. Almost...ALMOST made me succumb to the many offers I receive for another horse of my own.
ms.durgin has created a world wound about by the complex, simple emotions we all either finally understand or don't in our human capacity or otherwise as most wonderfully represented by Lady/Jess. she is a marvelous being. i loved these books and feel as if i have lost a friend in Jess/Lady. i sincerely hope she decides to continue the story. there is plenty to work with.
Loved the three novels in The Changespell Saga. Absolutely captivated by the story line of a mare "changespelled" into a woman while retaining her "horsenality". I couldn't put them down! Identified so much with my mares. A must read for anyone who has had the privilege of having a horse in their lives. Traveling back and forth between the world as we know it and a world of magic you quickly become engrossed with the characters and their stories. Was sorry when the saga came to an end.
