Corlath does sound hot!!!!! I Absolutley love this book. It is full of action, fantasy, and romance. Also I love the fact that Corlath and Harry get married.

I've never read rose daughter. I just read the blue sword. Very good. Why doesn't anyone post here?

You know everybody here? I don't know how you'd know me...
Rose daughter, it was somewhat disappointing. Beauty was much better, I think. Though she does make a good point or two, in R.D.

I think Deerskin was ok. There should have been more going on though. I like Sunshine. I thought it was good. I really need to get more but none are iat the library yet...

Yay! This board is finally alive! And I know everybody here:D I haven't read Deerskin, and judging by the comments on it here, it's not worth it... or is it? My personal favorite of all her books is Spindle's End... the Outlaws of Sherwood is pretty good. Does anybody else here think that Rose Daughter was somewhat lacking in Robin McKinley's wondrous style? Ta! ~Adna

well, i read deerskin again this summer, and it's not as bad as i remembered it, but i still didn't like it nearly so well as her others. too much time in the shack, and i didn't like her character. ossin was ok, though. did someone ask about sunshine? i got almost halfway through it and threw it aside in disgust. first of all, it's incredibly slow-moving. and i think she was also trying to throw a meg cabot style at us and the effect wasn't too hot. then there's the whole vampire thing... i don't know, it was just weird. despite those two books, robin mckinley is still one of my favorite authors. read anything else by her and it's good. (except, perhaps rose daughter. overdone)
