    Far and away one of my favorite series of all time The kingdom series is brilliant Not only for the very subtle modern allegories tucked into a generally well written fairytale fable medieval ish story, but this series has two assets that I love A You don t have to read them in order They are very loosely tied together through tiny hints throughout the books I had many ooohhhhhhhhh moments when you figure out how they relate I think this might be my favorite part of the series.B You don t have to learn a new language, world history or geography to understand the story It is so brilliantly simple north, south, east, west with characters written in the limited third person When they don t know something, you don t either, eliminating a ton of unimportant details that usually bog down fantasy books Characters also dont have intense histories that hav...

    Innkeeper s daughter, check Made up 16th century England ish land, check Implausible romance, check Okay, so if you re only going to read one Cynthia Voigt book make it one of the Tillerman novels and not this one But good LORD I love this story It s everything a completely un thought provoking Anglocentric young adult historical fantasy should be slightly dark, exciting, hopelessly romantic, and complete...

    Ultimately, this is quiet and satisfying, but for a good half of the book, I was wondering why I should care about this story and these people It turns out that an acknowledgement of the time you re spending on a book by an author you like isn t enough to actually invest you in the story I wish there d been initially emotion, purp...

    Like many other reviewers, this novel has been sitting on my shelf for years I remember reading this novel as a teen and remembered LOVING it But with all books revisited, would I feel the same way many years later It turns out this book was so much better than I previously thought All I remembered was that the girl Birle met the boy Orien on...

    Cynthia Voigt s On Fortune s Wheel tells the story of two runaway teenagers and their eventual return to their homeland The central character, Birle, is the younger of the two, and she follows the elder, Orien, who is escaping from his hereditary earldom to leave it to his brother Birle, though seemingly mature, and about to be married, actually seems childlike than she realizes she tells Orien of her machinations to avoid the chores assigned by her stepmother Nan or to foist the work on another family member proudly, even when Orien suggests shirking isn t something to be proud of She insists Nan treated her like a servant, but it seems clearer from her recollections that her work was merely that necessary from a child of a family that must run an inn to earn its keep, and her subsequent experiences lead her to the conclusion that not only is work a common, but a necessary and desirable part of life Birle seems to have little affection or concern for her family at the inn, including her father and half sisters, and never seems to miss or even regret the pain she may be causing them, suggesting an immature level of empathy especially when, at her return in the end of the book, Nan drops everything she s doing to go see Birle her home was a loving one, however she may have felt at the time that the life didn t suit her However, Birle s role in the story is wonderful When Orien, who isn t entirely honest with Birle about the s...

    I just finished reading Tuck Everlasting, which had this recurring wheel imagery and it reminded me of a book I completely loved when I was twelve or so I was reminded of it just because of the wheel thing not because they re similar books So I type in wheel and fortune and up it popped, this Cynthia Voig...

    I blazed through this book in two days Birle herself was an utterly compelling heroine childlike, flawed and human, brave, loyal, and loving Orien frustrated me at times and at times made me swoon The story itself is exciting and fraught with danger The romance and its flowering threaded gently through the plot a...

    3.5 5Sweet story, but was a little too slow and quiet even the action seemed dimmed, in a way to really hold my interest.

    I m actually not sure whether this book was meant for young adults or an older audience, but I think it would be fine for all ages The characters in this book are amazingly well developed and dynamic and I love almost all of them This is one of those fantasy books where a lot of time passes throughout the story and I could feel it passing even though it skipped around like crazy when nothing important was going on It was not boring in the slightest and though the plot was definitely not surprising, at the same time it was because of the emotion and dialogue I enjoyed so much I love how the main character, Birle, grew so much during her adventures, and the language and setting are so different from what I am used to experiencing in life It worked perfectly with the story I loved that The ending was cheesy and sweet and made me go awww, but for some reason that fit, and I felt satisfied and happy when I was done with the book Of course, I did fin...
