Age of Saints is the seventh book in Christy Nicholas’ Druid’s Brooch Series. The books are not chronological, jumping between different centuries, and can be read as standalones or as part of the series. I feel like it would have a been a better story if they were in order but. Understand why it wasn’t. The characters are well written and fun to read.

Age of Saints (Druid’s Brooch Series Book 7)
4 out of 5 stars
Age of Saints is the 7th book in the standalone Druid’s Brooch series by Christy Nicholas. The author continues to impress me with the depth
of her storytelling and the vivid imagery she paints.
This is a fantastic fantasy series I’ve found myself lost in, with characters that are deep and relatable. I have enjoyed every book I’ve read in the series thus far, but there was something about Age of Saints that I loved to the point where I would venture to say it’s my favorite! If you’re looking for a great book series that transports you to another place and time then I honestly can’t recommend the Druid’s Brooch Series or Age of Saints enough.
Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas
- This story gives us Conall’s and Lainn’s story. These two are siblings and care very much for one another. I enjoyed their relationship with each other. Conall is the holder of the brooch, and he tries to protect his sister the best he can. This leads to several obstacles and conflict for our characters. Christy Nicholas does a fantastic job at describing the world she invents and her characters are wonderfully written.View all my reviews
Conall and Lainn deserve peace! This sibling duo has been through the ringer and most of it not their fault. Conall promised his father he would protect his baby sister with all that he is and what big brother wouldn’t? BUT there isn’t a whole lot you can do with an absolute expletive of an abusive step father and powerful fae out to get you basically just because.
I feel for Conall so much. He loves his sister and wants the best for her. Every decision he makes goes from bad to how could this possibly get any worse…. oh that’s how it could get worse. The only thing I didn’t like in this book was that the ending seemed kind of blah. It wasn’t exactly a cliffhanger but I’m hoping there will be more about these two in the next book. Can’t wait!
Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas
The 7th in this series yet stands well on its own, this is my 2nd book by this author and her writing will pull you in and not let go..The descriptions of the surroundings and all that is going on helps in visualizing everything perfectly.
While this is not a chosen genre of mine, I absolutely enjoyed every page and can not wait for the next one which I already have waiting for me, the cover made me notice, the synopsis made me choose it, and the writing has made me stay.
I particularly enjoyed the characters in this story..Conall was awesome and trying to fulfill a promise he made to his father turns out to be more of a challenge than he realized, I loved the family bond between him and Lainn and I loved how real it felt..The interactions between the two made me smile many times.
Looking forward to see where this story goes next and if you are looking for a really good historical fantasy novel do yourself a favor and read all of this series in order..I do plan to do that very soon

Age of Saints by Christy Nicholas
Druid’s Brooch Series #7
My Rating 4 out of 5 stars
This is a great fantastical book. The characters are wonderful and the story line is interesting and entertaining. I did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. This is not my usual genre but I do urge anyone who is even thinking of giving this book or this series a try, go for it. It did take a minute for me to fully get into the book but after a certain point I could not stop. L
Conall is a good man and an even better brother for always trying to look out for Lainn, no matter what it means for him. I am so happy that Conall decided it was high time they left their house, leaving their mother and step father behind. Their step father is a slimy nasty man and it was truly was is best for them.
When they get to the Faerie realm and meet Ammatán, I assumed things would only get better for the sibling duo. I was eager to see where the relationship between Conall and Ammatán would progress, as well as see what kind of life they could live in this new world.
One dumb move by Conall and him and his sister are forced to flee from Ammatán’s house and they end up back in their world faced with new problems, they have been gone longer than they expected and a lot has changed. The life they knew is now gone and Lainn’s life is now in more danger than before.
I could really go on and on but fear I will give too much information away, and spoil everything. The ending, I wish there was more, I feel like some things were left unsaid but I have hopes that there will be a follow up to Conall and Lainn’s story. I truly enjoyed reading this book and recommend not just this book, but the whole series.
Age of Saints is the seventh book in the Druid’s Brooch series.
Yet another wonderfully woven tale full of magic. The story makes you feel as if you are there living it. The characters are intriguing and make you feel as if you know them right away. I love the closeness of Conall and his sister, how they lean on each other to make it through trying times. Ammatan is an interesting and colorful character, many facets to him. There are a couple of parts of this story that could go over into another book.
Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas is another great addition to this series. This series is a paranormal fantasy series where each story is set in different times. Age of Saints takes us further back in time to almost where it started and the magic became. It also gives us a look back on of the characters we have seen in the other books and shows them in a new light. Each story is a puzzle being put together for the big reveal. Christy’s writing always you to become one with the story and her attention to detail brings it to life. This captivating story is made more enjoyable due to the paranormal and magical elements. But it is also full of adventure and action, drama and romance.
I look forward to the next book.

Age of Saints by Christy Nicholas is the seventh book in the Druid’s Brooch series. This can be read as a standalone and enjoyed completely. This story follows Conall and his sister Lainn. Conall had made an oath to their father that he would care and protect his sister, Lainn. This story shows how even with the best intentions sometimes an oath is difficult to keep.
I really enjoyed the story and the setting in what would become Ireland. There was lots of detail but not to the point of taking away from the story. I also was concerned because I had not read the series but this is a great self-standing book. I look forward to reading more in this series and author in the future.
