      This saga has many books, but it s composed of several parts Book 1 to 4 are the Deverry Cycle At the end of Book 4 note that Bristling Wood is the US title and Dawnspell the UK title, but they are the same novel , you get a real ending So don t hesitate to buy this book or the previous ones thinking it will be too long before you know the end.I gave a detailed comment about Kerr s writing strong, visual but with also an elevated style , the story and the big plus of the saga on my comment of th [...]

      An entirely forgettable series Interesting magic system, and Nevyn is a great character, along with the reincarnation concept but something about the series strikes flat for me It doesn t help that the author seems utterly pretentious with her forward, notes on pronunciation, and afterword She is also extremely defensive about her work and her reasoning, taking pages to garrulously explain her methods and defend her choices based on common criticisms of the series I wish she d be above that in h [...]

      In this installment of the Deverry novels, we have two unfinished tales the ongoing current story of Nevyn, Rhodry, and Jill and a new story of an earlier reincarnation of the souls of Galrion, Blaen, and Brangwen as Necyn, Maddyn, and Branoic This book rolls right along, with intriguing characters around our main protagonists and plenty of plot twists I will be diving into the final book in this arc of the Deverry books soon.

    4. Megan on said:

      The Perryn story line, for all of its pain, is one that has always stood out to me as especially important in this series It taught me some amount of perspective, because what revulsion I felt towards Perryn s action was tempered by the measure of pity I also felt for him He truly didn t seem to realize what he was doing, but he harmed someone in a horrible way Is he executed for his crime, or is he helped Punishment, or rehabilitation Which should it have been I don t think there s a solid answ [...]

    5. Kerry on said:

      These are totally awesome books and I recommend them to pretty much any fantasy reader I remembered them as quite complicated and was a bit nervous restarting the series, but I ve found they re also remarkably readable and once I start reading, I want to keep on going and going.I ve got one to reread in the initial sequence, and they I ll be up to books I haven t read before.I remember starting the fifth one when it came out, but I didn t stick at it for some reason I think I was too invested i [...]

    6. Jane on said:

      This is a nice paced fantasy story with a good mix of realism and magic The characters are pretty typical and there is a tad too much politics for my taste I was sad to find that the book ends in an abrupt cliff hanger that requires the reader to continue on with the series.

    7. Kes on said:

      This was a good build up to the next book Reading about Perryn was creepy and awful I liked reading about the founding of the silver daggers, but the previous few books covered how the previous incarnation of the characters influenced the modern day retelling, and I didn t see any repeat of the Maddyn Branoic Owaen tragedy in 843.I m reminded of this author s delicate humour, like As the evening wore on, a fair amount of customers drifted into the inn As soon as they realised that Nevyn was an h [...]

      Arg this book ends on a huge cliffhanger But over all it is a very good book.

    9. Amber Ivers on said:

      This story had a few spots that made me want to keep reading It was really slow at times and hard to not give up It got interesting at the end.

    10. Nick Reys on said:

      This third book in the Deverry cycle was, as was the second part, a bit of a mixed bag Whereas I previously stated that these books needed a strong past storyline which wasn t really the case with Darkspell The Bristling Wood makes it clear that despite having a good story in the past, the current storyline with Jill and Rhodry must be strong as well to elevate the book above the muddle.The first part of the novel takes us back to the very beginning of what is called the Silver Daggers Through M [...]

    12. Amanda on said:

      This is my favourite of the series so far In this book the modern day plot follows Jill and Rhodry as they are forced apart by circumstance, and ends on a real cliffhanger where Rhodry vanishes, and it is up to Jill and Salamander to try and find him In the past we meet another incarnation of Jill and Rhodry, at a time when the silver daggers are brought into being and Rhodry fights to bring the one true king of Deverry to power.As I said in a previous review, because the flashbacks tend to be t [...]

    13. Bea on said:

      I read the previous books long ago, so I was a little lost at the start But only for short time, soon I could easily recall who is who and what happened That means I liked the second book than I thought And partly it was because the first, and not short part of book, is venture into the past about 200 years back So plenty of time to refresh the memory Considering that it s story in story, it was long, but luckily interesting Mostly thanks to Nevyn, who plays not a small role in the past and als [...]

      This series by Katharine Kerr, about a strange, vaguely Welsh world in which reincarnation is a reality, magic exists, and the sins of the past become the problems of the present continues to both impress and entertain.The book continues to weeve together a tale of the present , together with characterization of the past of the incarnations of those it follows That is the souls of those the Grand Sorcerer Nevyn wronged in his earliest mortal life As tensions mount, politics becomes complex, and [...]

    15. Deborah on said:

      The story of Jill and Rhodry continues in this the third book of the Devvery series by Katherine Kerr At this point the characters are developed, we have gotten to like and loathe with equal passion both the good and the bad At times even our hero s are irritating Such feelings when reading a book are a sign that the author has really got into your soul The to and fro between the past and present remain the bulk of the story as it does with the earlier novels this is necessary though to underst [...]

    16. Broodingferret on said:

      Kerr begins to hit her stride in this, the third book of the Deverry series Whereas before she wrapped up her plots rather thoroughly, leaving only the barest of threads to lead into another novel, with The Bristling Wood Kerr takes her time tellimg her story and doesn t shy away from leaving unresolved issues, her first real indication that this series is going to be a long and involved one Her prior incarnation stories are also becoming detailed and rich, standing as good stories in their own [...]

      It has been 16 years since I first picked up the first Deverry novel, DaggerSpell, and here in am, 16 years later, about to finish the fifteenth and final one.Has the journey been worth it Yes Was the wait too long Yes.I would not recommend anyone starts reading the Deverry cycle unless they intend to read them all, as the macroscopic story is at least as important as the microscopic ones, and as such I am reviewing the books as a set.I almost give them 4 stars excellent but in the end I am not [...]

    18. Patrickderaaff on said:

      De schrijfstijl van Katharine Kerr staat me aan, bondig en toch beeldend, met karakters waar je geboeid door blijft en een wereld die heel echt voelt Met name de Dweomer magie , het Natuurvolk, de onsterfelijke Nevyn en alles wat hiermee verband houdt lees ik graag over De verschillende incarnaties en tijdperken storen me niet en kan ik prima volgen Het eerste deel van Sperenwoud was interessant, omdat we zien hoe de eerste Zilverdolken op het toneel verschenen, maar het tweede deel was veel boe [...]

      3.5 stars, but rounding upThe main story trudges forth slowly in this third installment of Katharine Kerr s Deverry series Fortunately, the flashback stories with the previously incarnated characters are delightful and provide lots of insight into the magical world the author has created.The is a portion of the main story which bothered me quite a bit one of the main characters is raped While rape is repugnant and awful, it wasn t the assault that bothered me as much as the That s terrible but o [...]

      Note In the UK, this book is titled Dawnspell In the US it is The Bristling Wood.Dawnspell The Bristling Wood is my favourite of the series so far In this book the modern day plot follows Jill and Rhodry as they are forced apart by circumstance, and ends on a real cliffhanger where Rhodry vanishes, and it is up to Jill and Salamander to try and find him In the past we meet another incarnation of Jill and Rhodry, at a time when the silver daggers are brought into being and Rhodry fights to bring [...]

    21. Stuart on said:

      The third in the Deverry series, it looks as if this one is the last with the multiple centuries, where the same souls interact with each other in similar ways, having been reborn in different bodies, even with different sexes Sometimes annoying, this is the defining character of the series, and I will be sad to see it go It also leaves us with several of the threads incomplete How did Prince Mael get to be the head of the Maelwedds How did Nevyn maneuver a decent king on to the throne of all De [...]

    22. Richard on said:

      Perhaps I m late to the conclusion but I ve decided Rhodry isn t a main character He s just a really boring secondary character that has a large impact on Jill even though he s unspeakably unworthy of her or the story I m glad Nevyn s position with regards to what relationship he is to have with the reincarnations of Gweniver now Jill has been clarified but I ll go on hoping for a May December something to happen because I really, really don t like Rhodry It s funny actually how much I don t lik [...]

    23. ShariMulluane on said:

      It is easy to see why this is such an enduring and much loved series It just keeps getting better the you read it The story tightens up in this third installment of act one This is due in large part to the reduction in past incarnations of the main characters This go round only two are covered There is the present reincarnation featuring Jill and Rhodry and a previous incarnation that takes place when the Kingdom of Deverry as Jill and Rhodry know it is being formed By default, with the focus t [...]

    24. Lizzie Newell on said:

      Bristling wood continues the adventures of Rhodry and Jill mostly Much of the story isn t about Rhodry and Jill but long digressions into fight scenes The book doesn t get interesting until the end which makes if feel like a comic book series with each comic book having a reversed plot arc which starts the the climax and ends with the hook The opening of Bristling Wood is particularly dull.I liked the book better after I read Kerr s explanation included at the back about how the plot resembles C [...]

    25. Katherine on said:

      This is the 3rd book in the Deverry cycle It starts out much the same as the others, with Jill and Rhodry on the road, but there are many dangers that await them.It was good, pretty much of the same, but the B story the flashback was actually interesting to me than the main story I also have an uncomfortable problem when main characters get in trouble, I want to flip ahead to see how they get out of it, but of course reading it on a Kindle keeps that from happening.Anyhow, if you liked the oth [...]

    26. Laura on said:

      I think this would have been a good book if I had read the first two As it is though, I felt like I was jumping in the middle of the story which I was and I was completely lost To make things even confusing, halfway through the story jumps ahead 400 years I don t remember how many for sure and tells a different person s story I actually liked the second story better once I finally realized what had happened that took a few chapters.This book contains lots of sex and crude language Beware
