    One thought on “Dark Waters”

    1. Wow! Justwow! Chris Quinton hooked me with Scottish legends and reeled me in with kilts and a fascinating story that I contemplated calling in sick to finish. Although there are some disturbing topics, they're handled with just the right touch so as not to overwhelm the story. There's suspense, action, and two heroes that I worried would never be able to find common ground. I'd resigned myself that there might not be a HEA. While I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who haven't read t [...]

    2. Lassies are being murdered in the glen and it's up the immortal creature living in the loch and a traveling demigod (of sorts) to find the murderer before villagers turn their swords and axes against them. Set in Old World Scotland, this book struck me as a cross between Clash of the Titans and Sherlock Holmes. Amazing characters, fresh pace, simmering romance, and great storytelling.Long review can be seen here: reviewsbyjessewave/?p=

    3. This is not absolutely a "light" tale, and the cover unfortunately didn't do it justice. Dark Waters is a tale which has its roots in the old Scottish legends, and it's setting in a time when people still believed in those legends. The Eldren, fey people or similar, were mythical creatures, sometime in human form, sometime in animal form, and sometime in between. From a period during while they probably commanded on the world, now their mixed blood sons are among the ordinary people, even if the [...]

    4. I have been meaning to read Dark Water for a very long time. It is one of those books that have been recommended to me and that I have added to read on 'just the right day'. I have read a good amount of Chris Quinton's more recent writing, consider myself a fan and a friend, and have thoroughly enjoyed it all. A review left for her on this book reminded me I had yet to discover Flein's world which was published in 2008 with Ellora's cave.From page one I was pulled back in time to a magical age, [...]

    5. Неплохая вещь, хотя читать про поимку серийного маньяка в условном средневековье современными методами довольно забавно.

    6. I loved the water horse. His majesty and curiosity enthralled me. I also liked Flein and his confidence. There’s a bit of a mystery along with the two working together. I really liked how it ended.

    7. Flein the traveler has important letters to deliver on his journey and although he was warned to not take the shortest path more than once, he continued his way on his journey until he arrived at the home of Rory MacAllister. There, with a proper bed to sleep in, he was willing to sit back and listen to the stories of the each_uisage, a water spirit that was believed to be raping and mutilating women to feed. Although most of the community was willing to just believe that it was the each-uisage, [...]

    8. I am having a little trouble deciding on how to rate it.I think the story was very well written and I liked both the water horse Donnchadh (yes I did have to copy/paste that) and Flein. I liked the mythology and that they were both immortal. I think that makes for a good pairing. I guess what takes away from the story for me is that it is to short and in the space alotted the mystery came before the romance. I wish that the story was longer so one could see the relationship between the two devel [...]

    9. I found the writing style a bit irritating at times and had some trouble understanding some of the things going on. Sometimes I had the feeling the scenes went on a bit too fast or were only, like, half finished before something else happened I don't know how to put it, exactly it's just a feeling but I liked the story and therefore I'm going to blame the difficulties I had on english not being my first language.3.5 stars for the story.

    10. My main complaint is that this book should have been longer! What a difference a couple hundred pages makes. I didn't really care about the characters, I just sort of knew who was who and doing what, they could have been so interesting (Flein, Donnchadh, the various priests, villagers) but it fell flat. I would have liked more of a mystery without having to sort through all this lore, especially while a romance is trying to happen. Yeesh!

    11. This a fanciful story of Immortals, nymphs, Sea-Horses, and madmen. A time in when gods and goddess still had a hold on earth, before the new religions took over and magical half-gods became fiction.This book may not be for everyone, but it's a well written short story.3.25 stars

    12. A definite must read. Chris manages to keep the perspective of a world-weary immortal while keeping things fresh and new. Having read all of her books now, she is on my permanent "buy" list.

    13. I love fantasy and I really loved this book. All Ellora's cave have great writers. I don't agree about he cover I actually liked it. Good read.
