    1. One of my favorites of all time. Every Eisenstein novel or story are worth reading, for they're both rare and exceptionally crafts. This novel is really a fix-up of several short stories published in the 80s, though it is put together seamlessly and is a very touching story. It's a small fantasy, no big epic tale, but it is so well-written and so sad in the end that it stands out.



    2. In the Red Lord's Reach (1989) by Phyllis Eisenstein reads like the fantasies a decade earlier, which makes sense because the stories were first published in 1977 and 1979 in The Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy. That makes this book seem a fix-up, but I think that the short stories were always intended to form a complete arc. Each chapter of the novel reads like a complete short story.This particular novel is the sequel to Born to Exile, being the second book of the Tales of Alaric the M [...]


    3. I so enjoyed the first Alaric the minstrel novel, that I wanted to read the second and final book about him. It opens with the compelling tale of a strange king's domain whose evil is unknown until a climactic moment. The second half of the book bogs down in a near-documentary of tundra tribal life and explanations of the world's magic. Bringing the cruel king to justice is forgotten and Alaric is caught up in scenes with annoying or throw-away characters. He does use this time to "find himself" [...]


    4. This looks like a typical fantasy novel about a boy becoming a hero but its not.I dont know what Mr. Phyllis thought when he was writing this book but after reading the two books I just lost faith in having super powers even If I could get them.The reading is simple and all along you will feel the loneliness Alaric feels, why everyone wants him to be more than he wants to be.ying to forcibly cast their aim and ambitions on him and the underlying sorrow is all along thereI dunno If i could take a [...]


    5. Not great, but decent enough that I'd read more of her work.The story itself was thin and fragmented in components, but the storytelling itself was good, and was the redeeming quality.Minor sword & sorcery tale, more about the journey of the protagonist than the actual story itself - this could have been set in any realm, anywhere, any time and delivered the same tale.Not saying you should go out and buy it, but if you end up reading it you won't be wracked with self-loathing afterward.


    6. I read this series in the wrong order, but it was still an entertaining idea. This was one of my first introductions into the fantasy genre, and it was one of the books that hooked me. Its a very fast, easy, read. Perfect for an airplane or an afternoon when you're sick and stuck in bed but not in the mood for something heavy.



    7. Cute, as is the first part, but more predictable, which is why I cannot give it more than 3 stars. I'll still read the third book. Wait, what?
