Read full description of the books:
I took an extra long time to re-read this book, because I was sad for my little nostalgia-trip to end. I loved these books as a kid and though re-reading them has been an effort in enduring possibly the kitchy-est fantasy on the plant, it's been a really enjoyable experience.
I remember loving this book in particular out of the series because Sheila finally gets her own honest to goodness magic. And because it's the last book and it's sad. Looking back, I actually think this is one of the weakest books in the series (which makes sense, because Sunblind was the absolute worst and it was also written by Gwen Hansen). It's really abrupt in, like, ever way? The whole Ryudain thing was never explained to my satisfaction and suddenly Mardock got way more powerful than he was before? In the Dark Gods we kind of moved him from the impressively powerful category to teh malevolent trickster category, but suddenly in this book he is reading minds. Ok.
The romance in this entire series was one big dud. It wasn't believable and there was no payoff. They got about one kiss scene per book, but the constant knowledge that Sheila was going home kinda nipped that in the bud.
The big final scene was so abrupt and poorly-written that it was actually kinda painful. The adventure slams to a halt in a matter of lines and I'm pretty sure I got reader's whiplash from the suddenness of it all. The weird goodbye was sad and, again, abrupt. There were a few meaningless platitudes offered.
I think this book's major downfall was isolating Sheila and Darian from the rest of the riders. The ensemble of women warriors is precisely what made this series stick in my mind. I couldn't have told you a single plot line from these books a year ago, but I could tell you about Myno and Nanine. I could tell you Pelu and Illyria's backstory and Dian's insecurity. I remembered Kara's graceful exit after finding her sister and Zanara-Ki's sudden appearance. The riders were what made the book special and they really weren't even in this book.
So, all in all, I adored these books as a child, but have to admit that they aren't very good. That being said, there is plenty of room in this world for campy genre fiction and I am really happy to see a corner of it where women and friends and warriors and ride unicorns to magic waterfalls. I love these horrible books.
