The Keeper of the Mist

The Keeper of the Mist review ç 9 Keri has been struggling to run her family bakery since her mother passed away  Now the father she barely knew the Lord of Nimmira has died and ancient magic has decreed that she will take his place as the new Lady The position has never been so dangerous the mists t There s nothing keeping my interest so I m going to have to DNF this one at 20% However I do realize I m skipping 80% of the book so I m giving Rachel Neumeier an extra star for the benefit of the doubtI despised the writing Keri the main character spends much of the book thinking to herself which doesn t bode well on the writing uality because it s in third person The author should have written in first person if she wanted to share Keri s thoughts with us every other paragraph As it is we get sections like this Even though now that it had happened the succession pressed down on her like a physical weight She would not know how to do things She would do everything wrong Well but the Timekeeper she reminded herself would know all about everything Though she couldn t help being a little frightened of him She shouldn t be But he was he was really really old she thought I read this and other similar passages and wondered why Neumeier s editor didn t step in hereAt times Neumeier wrote in an indecisive manner that confused me to no end He looked over his shoulder not precisely impatient But he was patient in a way that had much the same effect as impatience Huh Keri hardly cared Except that she did she found Isn t there a better way to phrase thatBeyond the writing concerns Keri s actions and motivations made no sense to me Take the Timekeeper for example Upon meeting him a wise old man who is bound to her in service she s immediately afraid of him She thinks to herself that she should be wary of him Then not an hour later Keri and her keepers come across a force of enemy soldiers in the middle of their capital for the first time in centuries and Keri s response is Oh no problem I ll just have the Timekeeper handle this while I go put on frilly dresses Obviously I m paraphrasing but that s how it went down What in the world happened to not trusting him I became and fed up with Keri s character inconsistencies as I read alongI can say without guilt I m better off not finishing this if only for my own sanity

The Keeper of the Mist review ç 9 Hat hide Nimmira from its vicious land hungry neighbors have failed and Keri's people are visible to strangers for the first time since the mists were put in place generations ago At the same time three half brothers with their own eyes on the crown make life within t Nimmira is a small land which has survived by remaining hidden from its neighbours by means of a magical boundary mist When the Lord of Nimmira dies the succession passes not as expected to one of his three sons but to his unacknowledged daughter Keri Why the land has chosen to pass its magic to Keri no one can say but the mist is failing and with Nimmira now visible she must find a way to repair the magical boundary before her land becomes fully visible to outside eyesThe world building in this book is a strong feature and sets the stage for a story that takes place over a fairly short period of time Keri is a relatively everyday heroine who must decide whether to have confidence in her own choices or to rely on others to make decisions for her Helping her navigate her new position are both friends her formerly estranged family and the staff that comes with her new position but she needs to work out who she can trust and uickly The story moves fairly uickly once it gets going and is told with a great deal of subtlety The main characters are imbued with magic but are not possessed of super powers the relationships are all important but are not overwrought with emotion finally in the case of the cool and indifferent villains this actually makes them even frightening by comparisonAlthough understated I found the book ultimately satisfying in the end The less overtly powerful but still magical heroine stuggling to find her way reminded me a lot of Robin McKinley s style So if you re a McKinley fan or like uieter fantasy you might want to check this one out
