    One thought on “Summerwode”

    1. Summerwode book four of the Wode By J Tullos HennigDSP Publications, 2017Five starsWhat price would you pay for Eden In all my years I ve rarely found an author who can tackle something as ambitious as the Wode series and do it with such amazing skill of narrative and language and character These are modern books, but Hennig pulls us into the Middle Ages, surrounds us with sights and sounds that bring the time alive She tells a great story, weaving history tightly through it, and teaches us with [...]

    2. Wow I think I have said it before when talking about this series, but it bears repeating What started out as a retelling of the legend of Robin Hood at least that is what I perceived it to be when I read the first book has grown into an alternate fantasy world of its own Each book adds another layer to this creation and its spiritual development While some historical events such as King Richard returning from the crusades remain similar to what happened in our version of twelfth century history, [...]

    3. 4.5 starsGah Cliffhanger NOOOOOOO And I have no idea how long I ll have to wait for the next one Going by the time between previous installments, two years maybe Unless she pulls a George R.R Martin or Diana Gabaldon, then maybe ten years P Thankfully, I don t see her doing that.This picks up a few months after the end of Winterwode Gamelyn is still entrenched in the Templars, having to suppress himself again and letting alter id Guy de Gisbourne take over the reins for him, with all the complic [...]

    4. Utterly captivating This is the fourth book in an amazing historical epic fantasy series re telling the Robin Hood myths and it definitely does not stand alone This series is so special to me and my high expectations for this book were most definitely met, and exceeded What a wonderful, satisfying book I absolutely loved it and savoured every minute While the third book, Winterwode, was Marion s, and the final book, Wyldingwode, is to be Robyn s, this book is centred around Gamelyn Throughout th [...]

    5. How can it be over already I tried to read slowly and I am pretty proud of myself that I made it last for a week What self control I have, and I needed it because I could have devoured Summerwode in one sitting it was that good When I finished Summerwode I was a sobbing wreck as the last chapter destroyed me I always feel very connected to the Wode series the characters have managed to burrow their way under my skin I read on Twitter a couple of weeks ago that Summerwode s ending is very simular [...]

    6. Reimagining the Robin Hood legends, J Tullos Hennig sets the action in twelfth century Shire Wode Sherwood Forest when ancient druid ways are being scoured from the countryside by the Christianizing Norman occupation It s the era of England s King Richard the Lionheart, his brother John who rules while Richard is on Crusade in the Holy Land and imprisoned in Austria, and Richard s mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine The population is divided between the Norman ruling class and Saxon commoners And the E [...]

    7. There s a spoiler on the publisher s website that ruined the book for me a little Or a lot Avoid dsp publication website if you don t want spoilers Not sure if it was the book itself or the fact I was waiting for something to happen, but this was much less enjoyable than the last 2 books It dragged at times, slow dialogue and too much inner monologue and not enough action It picked up towards the end though I think I might need to reread this one to get a true opinion on it.

    8. I understand the necessity of fertility ritual, but in this particular instance I found it incredibly off putting and it completely spoiled the book for me.

    9. Much as I adored the first two books in the Wode series, the subsequent books haven t worked as well for me For one thing, I feel like the constant fog and tangle of magic and mysticism and tynged and the like has begun to befuddle me most of the time I can t make heads or tails of it and end up feeling lost Also, there isn t nearly enough Gamelyn Robyn page time any What I loved most about Greenwode and Shirewode were the scenes of passion between the two men, and these were basically non exist [...]

    10. Honestly, I don t know what to say that I haven t said about previous books Incredible from every angle, and in every way A masterful weaving of plots and conflicts that have been building from book one I m dying for the next book.
