Book Description

Aug. 1 2006 159818928X 978-1598189285
After long and patient research I am still unable to give to the reader of these Chronicles the exact date of the times that they tell of. Were it merely a matter of history there could be no doubts about the period; but where magic is concerned, to however slight an extent, there must always be some element of mystery, arising partly out of ignorance and partly from the compulsion of those oaths by which magic protects its precincts from the tiptoe of curiosity.

Moreover, magic, even in small quantities, appears to affect time, much as acids affect some metals, curiously changing its substance, until dates seem to melt into a mercurial form that renders them elusive even to the eye of the most watchful historian.

It is the magic appearing in Chronicles III and IV that has gravely affected the date, so that all I can tell the reader with certainty of the period is that it fell in the later years of the Golden Age in Spain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich writing and swashbuckling plot Nov. 15 2006
By Matthew Schwarz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the first novel by Lord Dunsany (aka Edward JMD Plunkett), a turn of the 19th/20th century author who was a pioneer in what was to become the genre of "Fantasy". His writing is some of the richest, most beautiful English I've ever read and his novels are a treasure for that reason alone. He also has an insight and storytelling skill that rates his writing as "literature" - much more so than all but the best fantasy authors (such as Ursula LeGuin).

That being said, this novel is notable for being a little more "fun" than his high fantasy that follows - it has a lot of humor and derring-do in it and is somewhat reminiscent of Dumas's "Three Musketeers" in that element. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard while reading such excellent prose! The plot revolves around the adventures of a young Spanish gentleman, who not being the eldest son will not inherit his father's property must seek his own fortune.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Dumas, Stevenson, "The Princess Bride", or Zorro!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome dry wit, a great storyteller Dec 17 2013
By Gift Card Recipient - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Marvelous story of a charming, elegant nobleman and his clever servant who have very entertaining adventures together. Just as good as King of Elfland's Daughter, in a very different way. Read also, The Charwoman's ... Can't quite remember the title.
