Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 8) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Caítríona Brauders

Age of Secrets (Druid's Brooch: #8)Age of Secrets by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t read many novels of this genre but I will be checking out more books from Christy Nicholas now that I’ve read this book.
Its a book with a comfortable vibe to it, its pace is steady and I loved the descriptions that Christy Nicholas used to really set the scene. The characters are complex and I think its easy to relate to the main character Fingin who feels like hes an outsider in life and takes comfort and peace in the shape of a dog called Bran. A great insight to the relationship of man and mans best friend.
A feel good read and good if you’re looking something a little different.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Age of Secrets: Druid’s Brooch Series: #8 by Christy Nicholas, is a delightful book. Reading this book was pure enjoyment. It’s a slowed motion kind of book and you really get to know Fingin. It’s like he becomes a really good friend because you know about his past and you know how he’s living now. The story develops at a slow pace so that you become familiar with all the other characters and their places of importance in Fingin’s life. A story so well-written you feel like you’re right there with him on his journey. Through his quest he finds purpose in life and I especially like this quote from the book…”Friends who make one forget self-loathing are treasures beyond that of gold or silver.” If you need a breath of fresh air this is a book you’re really going to love…

Yet again another wonderfully detailed and creative book from this author! I have really enjoyed the series so far so was looking forward to the newest instalment and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Fingin’s story was really fun and interesting to read – I thought I knew what was going to happen but there were some nice twists in the story which kept me hooked from beginning to end. I loved the adventure and magic in the story I was easily lost in what I was reading. The authors writing never fails to transport me in to the world in which she is writing about – fantastic world and character building!
Lovers of fantasy reads will not go wrong by reading this book and the series! I highly recommend this vividly detailed read to everybody!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Age of Secrets is the eighth book in the Druid’s Brooch Series by Christy Nicholas. It is a fantastic fantasy- with magic, adventure, paranormal elements, drama, action, romance, family, friendship, danger, battles, obstacles, and some mystery.
I always love the attention to detail and vividly descriptive storytelling that Ms. Nicholas has proven to excel at- as it brings her stories to life and makes them very realistic, believable, and entirely captivating. I can always count on her to deliver a really well written tale. Each book in the series is fascinating in its own right, but then when you read a few, you begin to realise that each one contributes a fragment to a wonderful Tapestry. But, be prepared to have each book draw you in and get you invested in the story and characters, right from the beginning.
Fingin hasn’t had things easy, and things get even more complicated when he is sent on a quest to find his grandmother. Along with his dog Bran, and Sean the donkey- they set off on an adventure which will test them in many ways. Things don’t go quite according to plan- and things are definitely not what they seem.
If you love fantasy, lonely outcasts, magic, adventure, and wonderful animal friends- then you really shouldn’t miss this story!
This adventure is a wonderful addition to the series.

Thank you, Ms. Nicholas!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series 8) by Christy Nicholas, 5 stars.

If you have been reading the series, you have been following the path of the brooch and what powers the current owner of the brooch gains. The powers Fingin gains are my favorite so far and this book itself is my favorite in the series. I really like Fingin. He has had to endure so much in his life, but he doesn’t seem to have a moment’s peace. Just when he thinks he has settled down to a normal life, he is sent on a journey that is both treacherous and thrilling. He learns how much more there is to life and what he really wants out of it. The author has yet again woven a fantastic world set in Ireland, long before it was known as such. She does a perfect job of making you feel like you are there. The secondary characters just add more flavor into the mix. They are not necessarily your normal secondary characters, but you will love them all the same. And this book, it just wouldn’t fit in the series if there wasn’t some magic in it. Well, Fingin gets to experience more than he ever imagined. But he stays strong through everything. He has a big heart and cares about his friends, he must endure for them. But just how much can he take?

If you are a fan of a magical series with strong characters on a journey of a lifetime, this book and series is for you. It can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading them all since they are so good.

Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series 8) by Christy Nicholas is another wonderful fantasy book in the series and easy to get lost in the storyline and characters. It is a creative adventure full of action and danger, and magic. Christy has a way of writing to make the story pop off the page and the plot is always well developed making the characters come to life.

In this book Fingin is sent off on a journey to find his grandmother. Fingin along with his friends have to face the danger and the obstacles set in his path. Fingin finds his grandmother but things are not what they seem. Now you have to grab a copy if you want to know what happens.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Age of Secrets by Christy Nicholas is the eighth book in the Druid’s Brooch series. This book is as original and enticing as the other books in the series.
Not many authors are skilled enough to carry a series though a few books, let alone 8 of them. And yet with each book this author produces the series just gets better.
This book is everything I have come to expect – it is creative and detailed. The author has a writing style that makes it so easy to imagine the world she is envisioning. The characters have such a depth to them that it is almost like you are there with them, experiencing everything they do.
I have to say this series is nothing at all like I expected when I picked up the first book. I was hesitant, sure that I wouldn’t like it and now I can’t wait to see what might be next. This is a great book and a fantastic addition to the Druids Brooch series.

By Christy Nicholas
5 out of 5 stars

The story Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 8) by Christy Nicholas is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself lost in the storyline and characters. I enjoyed reading about Fingin and his companions, Bran the dog, and Sean the donkey. Fingin has been sent on a journey by a powerful woman to find his grandmother. Fingin and his companions overcome many obstacles to find the correct path and at times there is danger. When Fingin finds his grandmother, he finds that things are not as they seem and that nothing is working out as it should have. What will happen when he gets mixed up in a power struggle and battle? What does the future hold for Fingin? Read this book to find out. This story is exciting to read and had my turning pages as I just had to know what happened next. I love the bond that Fingin and his companions have and how they look out for each other. Fingin is a likable character and I found myself wanting him to succeed and find happiness in life. Many other characters are introduced and some of them are helpful and then some are only out for themselves and what they want. I found this book to be entertaining and written in such a way that I felt like I right there with the characters. I would recommend reading this story.

5 stars!

I love this series. This is not my typical genre but ever since I have started this series, I have been completely invested. The details of the adventures, the way the story is told and how each character is described really makes me feel like I am inside the story with them. In this book we meet Fingin and his 2 companions Sean and Bran. They are on a journey to find Fingin’s grandmother who may or may not be real. The friendships that are forged, the adventures that are had, the obstacles they face, make for an awesome story that you will not want to stop. This book can be read as a stand alone but honestly starting from the beginning is the best and it is completely worth it.
