The first three in the series, I picked up and could not put down until I had finished; but this one I seemed to be able to go weeks without coming back to it hence the extraordinarily long read time. Oh, what a disappointment! Shame on whoever proofed this book for e-publishing – you did a shocking job and have done a disservice to the author.

My favourite parts of this novel were definitely the dreamtrails of Cassie and of Dragon and The Red Queen and the sections about the history of the Land, Obernewtyn and Elspeth’s Quest. The Obernewtyn Chronicles 8 books. What doesn’t rock is the state of what the kindle version has done to the book. Our favorite toys for everyone on your list Top Kid Picks. Elspeth now knows that she must continue her quest for the five signs left for her by the Beforetimer, Kasanda.

The fourth title in this bestselling series featuring the intrepid adventures of Elspeth Gordie. And I don’t have the same feeling as I did at the end of book 3, where there wasn’t enough of a distinct plotline within to warrant it being a book in its own right.

There were times when I considered giving up on it but then something really interesting would happen and honestly there is some really fascinating information coming to light in this one. This is a complex world, one that is intricately fleshed-out, and not at all predictable.


For the attitude change that’s been written, Elspeth is suddenly VERY hypocritical and narcissistic, and it makes the story that much longer and more drawling as she realises this and wrestles back and forth internally while the other characters wait for her to continue the conversation she was having.

I’ve received notification that the last book will be in my hands in days. The ensuring chaos is fraught with danger, treachery, and intrigue as Elspeth and the Misfits try to find their place in a hostile, post-holocaust land.

Confidence Game by Michelle M. I really liked the last few hundred pages, but the rest There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. One clue is lost in the past, forcing Elspeth to travel the Dreamtrails, carrmody by a terrifying winged beast, with the cat, Maruman, as her guide and guardian. They have never gotten ready for bed so fast as when we ppace these books so as to have more time to read. Here she must find the signs left to her by a Beforetimer who foresaw her and Elspeth is again guided by the Agyllian birds who plafe to her through Maruman or through her dreams.

I love the beasts who communicate, and have their own culture and mythology. However Elspeth is not alone as a despised misfit. Rushton recovers from his soul-less state, buy his recovery will be lengthy. Once the book does get moving it’s interesting, but I don’t know weather it’s because I’ve been r This is definitly the weak link in the series.

My first thought when I picked this one up was that I would just give up on this series rather than start reading this insanely long, enormous, monster of a book. Almost the entire first half of The Keeping Place is focused on Elspeth running Obernewtyn, and the dreamtrails.

I don’t normally review books, but the state of the kindle version of this book has set my teeth on edge.
