I recently finished Juniper and Wise Child (which were gifted to me by the generous Elengil). I enjoyed both very much. Wise Child is the better book - more complex, more immersive, more vivid.

Thank you Elengil!

:love:

I'll admit, I was just so thrilled to rediscover them I made absolutely no attempt to do anything other than just thoroughly enjoy them. lol. But you're probably right. Wise Child was the first one written, so Juniper might have suffered slightly from being a second book, drawing on the hope that the reader had already experienced the first. I am still somewhat surprised at how thoroughly my memory had blended the two.

I am glad you enjoyed them! I wish I could have found a more reasonable (cost) version of Colman to send you. If you ever have the chance to read that one it finishes up the stories nicely, though is told from the POV of Colman which was a little hard for me to remember at times since I was so invested in Wise Child's POV.

I agree. I've read all 3 (from the library). Coleman is difficult for me for the same reason, it being told from the viewpoint of Coleman, but it does wrap the story up nicely. I don't generally get into fan-fiction, but geez, it seems someone needs to write a story for what came next.

blackwells.co.uk ?

This was during a zoom chat, that's why you wouldn't find the link on the boards. Until now.

They have free shipping to Canada, so hopefully to the States as well. They're a viable alternative to the unmitigated horror that is Amazon.

They're based in Oxford, but they have a branch in Edinburgh. I love going there, it's one of those old buildings that have rooms leading off to rooms in unexpected places, like it grew up organically instead of being designed.

Thanks, Jude. The more viable alternates to Amazon the better!
