A re telling of a medieval WelshCeltic prose stories I was completely unfamiliar with the original stories so I can t comment on how well it has been interpreted but judging this in its own right I have to say that I am well impressedBeautifully written with breezy pleasing prose that tells of Pwyll s early years of kingship and his troubles with love gods and druids It eels to me that Dunsany such as King of Elfland s Daughter although less lorid a clear influence on her writing and that Vance in turn #was influenced by it such as LyonesseSecond Branch Children LlyrWow this one #influenced by it such as LyonesseSecond Branch Children of LlyrWow This One Uite Different this one uite different tragic tale in which the ancient British and Irish peoples nearly annihilate each other in a senseless war Right rom the outset the prologue sets the tone that carries on throughout the book The children of Llyr try to do what they think is right but each seems to inadvertently bring about disastrous conseuences despite their best intentions Although not as much can be said or their bastard half brother Evnissten who tries his best to disturb the peace as much as possible why their brothers put up with him is something I was unable to athomThis part was ar bleaker than that which preceded it underling the sense of eventual doom that must befall the Celtic peoples But the prose was still exuisite and beautifully written This is still high Space Kid fantasy at its bestThird Branch The Song of RhiannonA somewhat meandering piece than the previous two parts somewhat lacking in directionor most of the story The ramifications of the events in the Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town first two books are nowelt by the surviving characters as a series of tragic events unfold The cause and antagonist remains shrouded in mystery until the end and the inal confrontation at which time it all becomes clear Can the protagonists overcome their grief sorrow and despair to prevent their eventual doomFourth Branch Island of the MightyThe longest.

This is another of my Reach for the Rainbow: Advanced Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse favorite and lesserantasy novels Evangeline Walton s work had big influence on how I approach descriptions which you can probably see most clearly in Inheritance when Eragon visits Vroengard island The Mabinogion Tetrology is a bit of an odd thing because the story #is cobbled together
from welsh myths and legends so perhaps it Welsh myths and legends so perhaps it not as cohesive story wise as #cobbled together rom Welsh myths and legends so perhaps it s not as cohesive story wise as like The Lord of the Rings is which was created whole cloth But Evangeline Walton s writing line or line is some of the most beautiful I ve read She creates wonderful moods and is very evocative describing the other world the airy land that her characters are pulled into This is especially tangible in the opening of the irst book where the hero of that story encounters Death riding a gray horse in the orest and Death asks him to switch places with him or a day Imagine JRR Tolkien crossed with Stephen King but without King s profanity Need I say Awesome awesome stuff Whoooooooaaaaaaa I wasn t ready or how good this was I was expecting something mediocre but I m happy I took a chance with it Walton is indescribably beautiful with words Her Mythic Wales is true in every way to the misty legends that have been passed down Instead of misty though Walton takes those ancient stories and clears the mist humanizing and modernizing the legendsThis contemporary novelization of the Mabinogion is a metaphoric dusting and dragging orth of the gods heroes and monsters that took their rest under the barrows of old Wales long ago Never has a legend been so masterfully revamped bar The Once Future King Even then I m tempted to say it s just as good Since I plan to break up my reading of each branch of this set I will post my thoughts about each as I inish adding a overall conclusion at the endFirst Branch Prince of AnnwnI had no idea what to expect before reading this other than a vague notion that it was.
