L'Iliade Latine de Baebius Italicus, L'Ephéméride de la guerre de Troie de Dictys… liked it well enough that Il probably read the next one in the series which has a theme of fireI thought it was interesting that none of the main characters except one came from a function family Sad but I guess it fits the fairy tale genre Mermaid Song Loved the ending but had a heartbreaking middle The Sea King s Son Enjoyed some of the elements of the story but a Shrinking Cities: International Research little gushier than Iike Sea Serpent Perhaps my favorite story of the compilation Scary monsters adventure magic this one had it all Water Horse My favorite of McKinley s interesting Ideas Of The Guardians And How Their Magic Works Kraken of the guardians and how their magic works Kraken story archetypal facing of the unknown It worked out in the end a La fin du village: Une histoire française little better than I would have expected but I was expecting Lovecraft andess Disney A Pool in the Desert This was just weird Sucky home Ils étaient de leur village, tome 1 life for the main character who has crazy parents enough that I can understand her desire toeave But I didn t really get why she formed such an attachment for where she was headed nothing particularly good there for her and the pacing in the Les monuments historiques de 1940 à 1959 : Administration, architecture, urbanisme last two pages was so much faster than earlier that it threw me off McKinley s total shift of momentumeft me feeling slightly confused and unhappy about the ending She should have just cut out one or two paragraphs or fleshed them out to a few pages worthRating PG 13 for some mild sexuality by Robin McKinley and Peter DickinsonThis is the first in a planned series called Eleme.

be honest never uite grasped the intricacies of andscape or society Water Horse was nice especially in its deviation from the normal fairy tale ish ending Kraken was intriguing and had some ovely images A Pool in the Desert was welcome as a return to Damar for those of you who may not be aware of the fact I read The Blue Sword ten times between 7th and 8th grade I iked it although I was jarred by the references to our authors which seemed out of place somehow they Mazagão, la ville qui traversa l'Atlantique : Du Maroc à l'Amazonie (1769-1783) located me aittle too firmly in reality There is a re issued edition with a new cover and introduction but I couldn t find it anywhere online so I Les paysans dans la société française ll just have to wait and buy it eventually they re married and what s with the overly similar titles this year There s Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins Fire by Kristin Cashore and Fire by McKinley and Dickinson I give McKinley and Dickinson a pass because they ve had this book coming out for years Book source Interibrary oanRobin McKinley s website and blog if you are a fan and didn t knowPeter Dickinson s website There is so much great YA fantasy fiction now but it was fun to go back to where #It All Started For Me Mixed Feelings On This One #all started for me Mixed feelings on this oneto be honest
was one of the times in a short story collection where someone of the times in a short story collection where some worked a ot better than others for me I La longue marche des paysans français loved The Pool in the Desert which to be fair was the whole reason I picked up this collection since it was a return to Damar and The Sea King s Son and Kraken was interesting but the other three weren t really my thing Six stories by married authors Peter Dickinson and Robin McKinley to varying degrees themed around the element of water Overall Iiked McKinley s better no surprise there but Dickinson s Kraken was uite good too making up for the dullness of his Sea Serpent The Haussmann last three stories were better than the first threeThe final story Pool in the Desert is set tangentially in the world of McKinley s Damar novels It and Dickinson s first story Mermaid Song both felt as if they would have been better asonger novellas They also had in common that the role of water was not particularly essential to the story. Associated with the element of water Each story is as different from the others as are the creatures themselves but all are vividly imagined and powerfully told in the way that their many admirers have earnt to expect from these two write.

s partly in Damar A collection of six stories themed around water written well but not exactly connecting with me The Sea King s Son was easily my favorite with its sweet earnest romance I feel very sure that I ve read this before elsewhere but can t think of where It didn t matter I still iked reading it The rest of the stories just weren t for me But then I m #Not A Big Fan #a big fan Robin McKinley so it s not really surprising Damar Damar Damar Damar Damar and a character named Ruth DamarSo yes this collection had a new Damar story which I oved but I thought the collection as a whole was kind of erratic but that is maybe partly due to the fact that I adore Robin McKinley and don t have the same reaction to Peter Dickinson The three McKinley stories in the collection were my favorite and I ended up skimming one of Dickinson s The Sea Serpent because I couldn t get into it McKinley simply paints images in my head that refuse to go away no matter how ong it has been since I have read the story that sparked the paintingDefinitely worth reading if you L'Histoire des paysans français love McKinley and if you want to give the others a try I think Mermaid Song is his strongest offering in the volume I couldn t bear to give it anyower than 4 I think it deserves a 3List of storiesMermaid Song DickinsonThe Sea King s Son McKinleySea Serpent DickinsonWater Horse McKinleyKraken DickinsonA Pool in the Desert McKinleyAll the stories were pretty cool But the L'Arbois Jaune 1774 : Vin des Lumières last one most of all I absolutely fell inove with A Pool in the Desert My favourite story in this collection by far The contrast was spectacular The writing was masterful McKinley jolted me out of a grey tedious sad everyday ife to one of spice splendour and suspense ooh alliteration okay maybe not so much the suspens.
