Even better than the first book May 20 2013
By Amanda Richards - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ms. Bohnhoff has done it again. I couldn't put the book down!

Book 2 picks up where book 1 left us, so I highly recommend reading these in order. I had read some other reviews that said they didn't like that it didn't stand alone, and I can't find it in me to agree. I really liked that they built on each other. Most of the great Fantasy series' build upon the previous books, it allows for more detail and a better story line (imho).

The breif synopsis is that Taminy trades places with Meredydd (I don't want to spoil too much) and is thrown into life and the drama surrounding the Cyne (read: King. See, read the appendices first!) and the Osraed. She must fight to remember who she is, and not be distracted by the obsticles thrown at her.


I REALLY enjoyed this story. Like I said in my review of book 1 I look forward to purchasing these in print (as I have ended up winning both books through GoodReads or LibraryThing).

Ok, so a little bit of "kind of" spoiling here:

There was one thing that I was curious about or that may have nagged me a bit while reading. About half way through the book one of the main characters just disappeared from the story. Gwynet seemed to be who the author was trailing for the first few chapters until Taminy was reintroduced then Gwynet slowly went to the wayside then was never mentioned again. I would have liked to see her at least peppered in a little bit. And I would have also liked to hear a bit more about the "mysterious woman" who showed up during the trials! Maybe book 3?? Cant wait!!

Otherwise I loved it! And I think it kind of reminds me of Skyrim...and would make a great video game (imho)!

great second book Aug. 12 2012

This series begins with The Meri. It's really excellent. Bohnhoff gives us a woman-centered religion dominated by a male priesthood, in an unusual context, with a fresh eye and a strong voice...and a satisfying second book.
Greater Focus Than Book One Aug. 22 2015
By E. Phillips - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Taminy continues the 'Mer Cycle' that began in The Meri, and will continue in The Crystal Rose. In many respects the second book suffers from the same issues as book 1, in that, particularly in the first half of the book, Bohnoff's text is self conscious and overly long - slow to come to the point. However this becomes less of an issue later in the book, where the story moves on at a more balanced pace.

While the spiritual message remains a strong one, and I particularly enjoyed the struggles enjoyed by a being struggling to find a peace with returned mortality from a state of divinity, the reader can sometimes struggle with unfamiliar words, used to build and maintain the otherworldly feel of the novel, (as in book 1), which can jar them from the story.

If you have the patience to sift through the issues that this and the previous book have, you might be rewarded by enjoyment of what is essentially an interesting premise for a story in which politics and magic collide with male dominated (goddess) spirituality - which is in itself an interesting dichotomy.
Relationship of the Holy with women and men March 30 2014
By Claire P - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Continues the story of The Meri and the relationship of people to the Holy. It considers the difference between real relationship and just the outer trappings of relationship. It is a tale of struggle, misunderstandings, gender bias, and redemption and it spoke powerfully to me. This is the second in the trilogy containing The Meri, Taminy, and The Crystal Rose. Highly recommended.

An excellent continuation of The Mer Cycle! I loved getting to know characters from the first novel, seeing their growth, and observing their interactions with Taminy and her enemies. Can't wait to read the next one!
