    1. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY loved this story (woo, 5 stars!) but I really feel like I gotta address thisHow on earth did this book get published as a young adult novel? I like to think of myself as a positive thinking person, but this book has stronger adult content in it than what I've read in actual adult novels! Two rather descriptive sex scenes, strong sexual innuendo, harsh language, and everything gets more vulgar as the story goes on. I'm sorry, but I cannot recommend this to a teenager, [...]


    2. I'm slowly rereading my way through this trilogy from the late 1980s and early 1990s. I had already read the first two volumes (this one and New Moon), but while I've owned it since it was published, I have never read the concluding book (I don't remember why I didn't read it at the time).I've really enjoyed reread the first two. They are quite hard work - the print is small and the prose is quite dense compared to the easier style that is own employed these days. They are gritty books without b [...]


    3. It is hard for me to evaluate this book completely, as it is the second volume of a trilogy which I picked up randomly used and I have not seen the first or third volumes. HOwever, I liked this volume well enough that I am now looking for the other two. It picks up in the midst of a rebellion against the Fire Queen Zorah; originally she was one of 4 queens embodying the magic of the 4 elements (earth, air, fire, water) but to stay forever young shekilled the other three queens and made herself a [...]


    4. Sadar’s Keep continues the story that began in New Moon. Three of the four young queens had been found by the end of the first book, and the army that is slowly pulling together around these young woman is starting to find some unusual allies. Midori Snyder focuses the story around the preparations for battle at Sadar’s Keep between the army of the uprising, known as the New Moon, and the Oran military. Sadar’s Keep is also the site of the battle between the current Fire Queen Zorah and he [...]


    5. The second book in the Oran Trilogy, three of the elements have gathered but Earth and Fire would rather outshine and overcome each other. Jobber, our street-smart city girl is despising the training with the sword, feels completely outclassed and ugly next to Shedwyn, and is completely out of place in the mountains. Shedwyn envies the lithe tom-boy and her fluid movements and struggles with her own sense of inferiority. And poor Lirrel is trapped in between. As the story progress, one begins to [...]


    6. Dit was de tweede keer in tien jaar dat ik de serie las. Het gekke was dat ik me er bijna niets van kon herinneren, behalve dat vier meisjes krachten van de vier elementen bezitten. Hoewel de boeken heel vlotjes lezen, merkte ik dat ik er wel even in moest komen. Hoe verder ik in de boeken kwam, hoe meer ik erdoor gegrepen werd. Midori Snyder is geweldig in het neerzetten van verschillende personages, en haar manier van schrijven is beeldend en kleurrijk. Het laatste boek heb ik in een paar dage [...]


    7. Sadar's Keep is the second book in the Oran Trilogy. I read the trilogy out of order, and knowing what happens in the final book made this book less interesting than it might have been otherwise. The trilogy is very enjoyable, a good story in a well-designed world where elemental magic weaves the world together.


    8. The second book seemed slower than the first book but maybe that was because it was full of so much good stuff. I can't wait to start book 3 (although I will wait my customary month just so that it doesn't disappoint me) and learn where the Queen's Quarter Knot ends up!


    9. I find the same thing compelling about this book as I do the rest of the series, the actions of an organized broad based group that fights the good fight against oppression, not just a "chosen" few who will make oppression go away.


    10. I read this book Gosh 15 or so years ago. Was my gateway to fantasy. One day I will get around to reading the first book. But for now 4 stars. That may change once I reread with a more practiced lens






    11. Really enjoyed this book. As I suspected, it was easier to read than the first as things are being done about all the senseless violence now.




    12. A solid second book in the series, but the plot is a bit slow compared to some books. All the characters feel very real. Their pride and insecurities feel very natural, never two dimensional.
