Book Club: March Selection and April Poll

Hello and good day and prepare yourselves for the March selection for book club, as voted by you, our readers!

Daggerspell (1986)
Author: Katharine Kerr
Discussion date: 3/23/18

Premise:

Even as a young girl, Jill was a favorite of the magical, mysterious Wildfolk, who appeared to her from their invisible realm. Little did she know her extraordinary friends represented but a glimpse of a forgotten past and a fateful future. Four hundred years-and many lifetimes-ago, one selfish young lord caused the death of two innocent lovers. Then and there he vowed never to rest until he’d rightened that wrong — and laid the foundation for the lives of Jill and all those whom she would hold dear: her  father, the mercenary soldier Cullyn; the exiled berserker Rhodry Maelwaedd; and the ancient and powerful herbman Nevyn, all bound in a struggle against darkness. . . and a quest to fulfill the destinies determined centuries ago. Here in this newly revised edition comes the incredible novel that began one of the best-loved fantasy seers in recent years — a tale of bold adventure and timeless love, perilous battle and pure magic. For long-standing fans of Deverry and those who have yet to experience this exciting series, Daggerspell is a rare and special treat.

 


Hello friends, it will be April next month and in the grand tradition of April Fool’s Day . . . I’ve decided not to pull a fast one on you and suggest three regular fiction books, which I contemplated, and am instead suggesting three funny books, because it’s been three months since Christmas and Terry Pratchett, and I wanted a laugh. Take a look, cast your votes, and come back later in March for the Daggerspell discussion!

    I’ve actually read all of these books. This is kind of amazing. And they’re SO DIFFERENT from each other, but so good in their own ways!

      I’ve only read Redshirts, but I’m excited about all of them!
