    One thought on “Bones of the Past”

    1. I enjoyed this second book in the Arhel trilogy even more than the first book. The first book was entertaining, but the story was really pretty generic as far as fantasy stories go. Bones of the Past, on the other hand, had a more unique story and it too was written well. I can’t think of any way to provide a brief synopsis of the plot without spoiling some part of it that I had fun discovering for myself, so I’m not even going to try. Well, I guess I could just limit myself to saying that t [...]

    2. This is a fast, involving and entertaining read, with some intriguing and sometimes frightening world-building. After getting to know Medwind Song in Fire in the Mist, I liked seeing her rise to main-character status in this one, and I loved the fresh insights into the culture from which she comes.Things can get pretty gruesome (carnivorous tree-gods!), and some readers may feel a bit squeamish about Medwind's relationship with her much older husband and the exploitation of the "sharsha" girls, [...]

    3. Bones of the Past is the second book in Holly Lisle's Arhel fantasy series, and it stands well on its own. Familiar characters from the first book Fire in the Mist (Faia, Medwind, Nokar) along with some new ones (Roba, Kirtha) set out on a quest to discover the city of the First Folk in the treacherous Wen Jungles. But little do they know that by unearthing the bones of the past, they are unleashing an ancient evil.Let me begin with what I liked about this book. -The plotting and characterizatio [...]

    4. A fantastic second novel. While this does have a predecessor and some of the events from that have shaped the story, this novel is set several years after the first and has a largely different setting so it could be read as a stand alone.This novel is largely set in the forests, with tribes who worship trees, monsters, outcasts as well as a few character from the first novel thrown in. it is a great read, and also touches on many social issues that ourselves have. For example each group believe [...]

    5. This proved a good book with plenty of suspense and adventure. The author covers the story from several different viewpoint characters, which made the story stronger. I felt for the children of the Wen being outcasted by their people or ending up food for cannibal trees. All the characters were three dimensional and sympathetic. Ms. Lisle writes good books with vivid images and likable characters. If a bit grim in places, the book keeps you hooked until the end. I believe readers will enjoy this [...]

    6. A little slow to start but from around half way through, when all character end up together, really turns interesting.

    7. I used to read all of Ms. Lisle's books. This was an odd one. The first one was a bit over the top with the man hating. This is was a decent follow up I guess.

    8. Apparently a sequel, but worked as a stand alone novel and I did not know until later that it was a follow up book.
