Misfortune of Song
(The Druid’s Brooch series, Book 5)
4 out of 5 stars

The Druid’s Brooch series does not fall under the category of genres I read very often but with books so well written, I’ve gladly made an exception.
Misfortune of Song is the fifth book in the series by Christy Nicholas but it can easily be read by itself; in fact I’ve been reading this series out of order.
Once again Christy Nicholas has captured me with her storytelling, in depth characters and fantastic imagery. The storyline had a bit of everything to keep me engaged and my emotions on edge.
I believe in my last review I stated that the book I had just read was my favorite in the series, I’d have to go back on my word and say Misfortune of Song has stolen that spot. Let this be an example of the kind of series this is, once you think you couldn’t love the books anymore, you read the next installment. Misfortune of Song has introduced me to a whole new world and much welcomed break from reality, if only for a short period. I will be recommending this author/series to anyone I know that’s looking for a fantastic read all around.

MISFORTUNE OF SONG Druid’s Brooch Series, #5 by Christy Nicholas was a great read. I love that her fae characters aren’t cutesy little fairies that I’ve seen in the past. It is very well written and even though it’s a part of a series you could read it as a stand-alone. I had so many emotions while reading this, I couldn’t put it down!

This book is an excellent addition to the Druid’s Brooch Series. The story was easy to get into and the characters were written nicely. This could be read as a stand alone but the other books in the series are just as great and I would highly recommend them.

Almost all of the characters in this book got on my nerves or did things that made me hate them. In saying that, it really made the book all that much more interesting for me. I wanted to read on to see how each person would react to the different situations they were thrown into.

Orlagh is a fool, chasing after a love that wasn’t even there in the beginning just because of one kiss. Temuirr is a promiscuous man that can’t hold a solid relationship which, leads to his sister Yana always exasperated by the situations he gets himself into. Orlagh finds out that her grandfa is arranging a marriage for her with a man from their village, she denounces her grandfa’s care to live on her own and follow her love for Temuirr. Temuirr is surprised and taken aback, he realizes he is in too deep with this woman and may have to court her for real.

Eolande is Orlagh’s best friend, and my favorite character. She always has Orlagh’s back and is a fae that was cast out of her world because she fell in love with a mortal. She follows Oralgh in her quest to track down Temuirr to watch over her and keep her safe. Maelan, Orlagh’s grandfa and Eogan, Maelan’s best friend, go out on a search to find Orlagh and bring her home as well as to her senses regarding the traveling bard, Temuirr. Maelan makes many very terrible decisions regarding his granddaughter in the form of kidnapping her and ruining her relationship with not only Temuirr but him as well.

I don’t want to give away too much more information, but there is some stuff that goes down towards the end and really makes for a nice ending to the book. I did enjoy this book and can’t wait to look into more books from this series.

4 Stars

So even though I have read this series completely out of order I have totally enjoyed every story and this one was no different. Although I do wish I had read them all in order I do have that on my to do list for the future. This as I’ve mentioned in earlier reviews is not a chosen genre of mine but I can’t deny the writing in this story, it flowed so perfectly and kept my attention throughout the majority of the book.

I loved the character portrayal in this story from Orlagh dealing with real teenage behaviors and Maelan struggling with trying to save her from herself and also trying to follow through on an obligation. The story progressed and had me on the edge of my seat through most of it. It had many different aspects filled with danger and suspense.

I love Ireland and want to visit someday, and even though this was set in the past the descriptions of it just strengthened these hopes I have of seeing it someday.

If you love reading fantasies set back in history you will absolutely love these books.

4 Stars!!!!

Taking another trip into the realm of the fae and 12th century Ireland and the drama that unfolds. As before I have been reading this series out of order but it hasn’t caused any difficulty in keeping up or understanding. The author has a unique style that has you feeling that you are right there in the midst of the story alongside the characters.

The author is able to bring in twists to the story along with the drama. As Orlagh rebels against her
grandfather I could really relate to her character. The way the author had it that Maelan has to bargain with the Fae really brought a new dimension to the story. The Fae once again bring a unique twist to the story. This book was very hard to put down. I was eager to see how the drama would unfold around Orlagh as a descendant of the brooch. I really like the magical twist to these books. I really cannot wait to read more from this author and the series.

The attention to detail in this book is astounding. This is the fifth book in the Druid’s Brooch Series. Each book can be read as a standalone but, as a reader, I highly recommend reading a book in series order to get the most out the series. Each book focuses on a new set of characters and their journey with the Brooch.
In this book we meet Maelan and his granddaughter Orlagh, in 12th Centruy Ireland. Maelan has found himself in a predicament. He is determined to protect his granddaughter, fulfill his obligation to his Chief and try to maintain and protect his family name.
When Orlagh goes off on her own, Maelan goes after her to save her from herself…but does she really need saving? Having to choose between his Clan and his last living family member, Maelan goes on the journey of a lifetime.

Between magic, Fae, and Maelan determined to go to the ends of the world to save his granddaughter, this book is nonstop action. I loved every last page of it and I have loved each book in the series. Highly Recommended!

Great story. By far my favorite of the series. The characters are well written. Funny, believeable, and makes you want to go on their adventures with them. If you love syfy/fantasy, this is the series for you. You dive deep into the world of
fantasy with every story and makes you want to live it. Love the best friend in the book. Made me think of my own!

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Misfortune of Song (Druid’s Brooch #5) by Christy Nicholas was an heart pounding, entertaining, engaging read, that had me hooked.

Yes I know, I’m not exactly reading this series in order, but they can be read as standalones, and the timeline isn’t consistent, so I don’t feel like I’m missing anything, if anything I’m enjoying that much more. But if you are a stickler, then I do suggest reading them in order.

Each book that I read in this series, has more magic, more drama, and just more insight into the fae world. This read has a mix of romance, of one that isn’t all happiness and sunshine. There are real emotions and problems, as well as magical drama (more so on that evil side) and an unsupportive family. It makes this otherworldly read, connecting and realistic.

This book covers so much, makes you feel so much, and frankly I can’t pick a favourite in the series. Well written and easy to read, these book takes you on a fantastical ride that just captures you mind and soul. Not to spoil anything, I’m going to leave you with my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, for this must read.

Happy reading

Misfortune of Song: Druid’s Brooch Series: #5
By Christy Nicholas

This book is full of magic, love, danger, action, and adventure. This book can be read as a standalone but I’m sure as soon as you read it you will want to dive right into the other books in this series. In this story we read about Maelan and his granddaughter Orlagh. Maelan just wants to protect Orlagh and get her to make the choices that he feels is best for her. Orlagh is a bit spirited and some of the choices she makes has great consequences which leaves Maelan having to make some difficult decisions in order to keep her safe. Will he succeed? This is a must read if you want to find out what happens in this wonderfully told story. The author does an exceptional job making this story come to life with her rich details and the way she weaves the story draws you in and keeps you entertained and turning pages to find out what’s going to happen next. I highly recommend this great story.
