    1. MISFORTUNE OF VISION (Druid's Brooch # 4) by Christy NicholasMISFORTUNE OF VISION is a medieval fantasy set in Ireland in the year 1177. It’s a world of savage cruelty, but nothing in the book seems really unpleasant on a visceral level, although some characters face fates that surprised me.In Ms. Nicholas’s telling, heathens and Christians exist fairly amiably together in mutual disrespect but little outright hostility-possibly because the faerie realm is a real power, though distant. The m [...]

    2. A solid fantasy adventure set in 1177 with a touch of magic. The two main characters here are not your typical fantasy characters. Orlagh, a seer for her chief, is an older woman, a grandmother, and her tasks are to warn her chief of an impending invasion and to find a worthy successor of her magical brooch, who must be kin. We see Orlagh interact with several different characters throughout the tale, from bishops to warriors to magical creatures. She is a deft and clever character, and she's wr [...]

    3. I read Christy Nicholas’ Legacy of Hunger, the first in her Druid's Brooch series, a while ago and really enjoyed it. No surprise that I grabbed on to Misfortune of Vision when I saw it. The surprise (for me) is that I soon realized that I’d somehow missed two intervening books. Ouch. The good news, however, is that I was still able to follow along (even though it’s clear I’ve missed a ton), and that Misfortune of Vision was totally enjoyable. I love the 12th century Ireland setting, and [...]

    4. Good!I usually write reviews that are a bit longer, but sometimes it suffices to say: this was good. Well-written. History mixed with magic. I loved it!I received a complimentary copy of this book and voluntarily posted an honest review.

    5. I started reading this book on Wednesday, had to charge my tablet up yesterday and then sat down on Friday afternoon, thinking I'd read a few chapters. I was hooked and read 75% of it in a few hours. Time got away from me. The intertwining stories of Orlagh and her grandson add interest to the narrative, and a bit of misdirection and mystery. The characters are well-written and rounded. I love that Clodagh slowly comes out of her shell with the care she receives. The mix of folklore-magic and hi [...]

    6. This was a little bit different to what I would normally choose but I am so glad I decided to give it a chance. It's full of adventure from start to finish. Would happily recommend this author to everyone I know.

    7. I love this book!Full of surprise, life and adventure!I like to see the difference in the living in the past.I recommend this book to all that love adventure and druid.

    8. In 12th century Ireland, the old ways of Druidism and prophecy are coming into conflict with the new ways of Christianity. Orlagh has been the Royal Seer to her chieftain for over 40 years. Recently, though, the chieftain has been disregarding Orlagh’s visions, to the detriment of the tribe. While Orlagh honors the old ways and the Fey Folk, she walks a fine line and knows that she must balance her gift of prophecy against the teachings of the new church, and tries to give proper credit to the [...]

    9. THE best opening chapter I've read in six months. What a wonderfully broad and deep entry into Middle Age Celtic life, where Christianity has a bit overstayed its welcome from the glorious days of Patrick to the more decadent times of French rule of the isles and the Byzantine politics of the newest religion has begun to reveal some rot (desperately awaiting the reform -- of the theater, abandoning the painted-in-a-corner cathedrals and decreasing efficacy of chants and stained glass, but this i [...]

    10. This was a lovely tale replete with details about a culture and a time long ago. Skillfully crafted magic and intrigue is woven into the stories of the characters leading the reader through the tale. The occupants of the world created by the author are real, vibrant and satisfying. I loved every moment of this book.

    11. As the author, I like to give a little background on the challenges and insights I discovered while writing this book.12th century Ireland was a new world to me in writing. I had to do a lot of research on the native Gaelic culture, societal norms and rituals, as well as the political dynamics of three different cultures clashing in one place; Gaelic, Norman and Ostmen (Vikings). It was a fascinating trip, to say the least! I truly enjoyed exploring how the different cultures eddied and swirled [...]
