Author writes well but is long-winded. Like plodding through molasses.

Unfortunately, this was my least favorite of all the Sara Douglass books that I've read. I found myself not caring for the protagonist and actually skimming along - not a good sign.

An excellent first book in a great alternative reality / fantasy trilogy by one of my favourite SF / Fantasy authors. I found this series more enjoyable than the Battle Axe trilogy as it has a real world setting (albeit slightly "skewed").

* Crucible - bk. 1

Jul 21, 2006

I enjoyed Douglass' "Threshold" a few years ago and looked forward to trying some of her series. This is the first book in the series "The Crucible," which takes place in the 14th century in the years following The Black Plague, an interesting and turbulent period in Europe. Thomas, a Dominican friar, is visited by St. Michael, who tells him that demons abound in Europe and that it is his life's task to stop them. Although I didn't love it, I'll definitely finish the series. Another wonderful book that takes place during this time period is "Katherine" by Anya Seton.
