Misfortune of Song by Christy Nicholas is the fifth book in the Druid’s Brooch Series. This book can be read as a standalone and understood completely and enjoyed. This book is set in 12th century Ireland. Maelan is the head of his family and must look after them and assure that they make the best decisions. His granddaughter Orlagh is determined to not follow him and makes his life chaos. Can he keep everything together and protect his granddaughter?
This is my second read in this series and I am hooked. I enjoy both genres of historical and fantasy and this incorporates both well. The characters are well written and challenged in their lives. I can not help but get emotional at some of the things the author puts them through. I like the story and how it intertwines with the other books but is not essential to have the other stories to enjoy the individual book. I look forward to reading more in this series.
