I read all three of these books and they tell an awesome story. The conflict between fae and man. The fae had been imprisoned in a terrible place, cold and dark, for thousands of years. They were some mean folks, but I had to sympathize with them, for they had suffered a lot. When the wyrde weakened and they found a way out, they took it. That may have been alright, but they had a leader who wanted to kill all men and take their home. Meanwhile, there is also war between Anlan and the Bjornmen.
Put all together, it made a huge mess. Fortunately, there were people fighting to save the wyrde and repel the fae. The Anlish and the Bjornmen joined together with a good fae named Aervern who wanted fae and men to work together. And you also have a new religion trying to do away with all the old.legends and beliefs. They say the fae don't exist, although they are killing people right and left.
I loved the story told here and the ending was just incredible, especially the resurrection of the wyrde and the last battle scene. It was filled with passion, selflessness, love, and surprises. There was much sadness, too, but I don't see how it could have been different. I really recommend this series to anyone who has an interest in knowing what is behind all the old tales and legends. It may make a believer of you. I was sad to see it end, and left wondering what would happen next. It was so lifelike that when I reached the end, it was like losing friends. Maybe someday, it will be a movie. I actually suggested it to the author. I can't recommend this series enough!
