In the time of the Etruscans, the half-forgotten civilization that preceded Rome, centaurs, fauns, and other manlike races still existed alongside humanity. Between mankind and the Weir Ones was constant fear and distrust. When the arrogant nobleman Lars Velcha enslaved one of these creatures, the fear and distrust turned into open warfare.
The Weirwoods is an unforgettable novel of mystery and magic at the dawn of history, by the celebrated author of Lady of the Bees and The Green Phoenix.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The female characters show the most growth, and were what kept me listening.

The music was a nice addition.
