It took me awhile to read through all three books of 'In Serein'. It was a really magical experience for me. As a fellow writer, I can say it's the sort of book I wish I had written.

Isca is a very unique heroine; strong, determined and refusing to give up. Her journey from a lowborn girl engaged to a butcher's son to the Lady of Lucian Tremain and finally the mother to the high king was breath taking and beautifully done. Lucian is probably the most complex character in the books. It took centuries before he was finally allowed the peace of death but in the end he found some redemption and love. He is definitely no knight in shining armour but in his own way, he did have a sense of honour. Chay was simply lovable, a different kind of man but I assume he got what he wished for in the end.
All in all, this is a very enchanting story. I was hooked from... Read Full Review

[In Serein] was deep dark and amazing. A great insight into mental capacity and the struggle with love versus evil. Utterly well written.
I read all 3 books online during a really shitty job. This book was deep dark and amazing. A great insight into mental capacity and the struggle with love versus evil. Utterly well written. This is NOT for everyone and in fact sometimes it was a down right struggle to watch the love and hate between the characters. I don't know if I could ever re-read these books because it just pulled at my heart so much. This is a deep look into a madness that can only come of living so long. It's a unique look at a world that once had magic. It's tough to stick with, but worth it for the insight.

Did I mention [In Serein] is my all time favourite fantasy trilogy?!
I’ve never written a review on amazon before but when I checked to see if one of my favourite books had been brought to kindle I was amazed there was only 1 review on the entire trilogy!!
These books take you on an epic journey with many unique qualities brought to the fantasy genre. The 2 main characters are memorable with both having faults as well as strengths, as the series continues more characters are brought in as well as history and layering to the world which makes it seem so realistic to me. I don’t want to give any spoilers but this entire series is a must read!!! I also implore you to pay for the novel even though it is a free online novel (and has been for years - legally as well I think as it has an official web page but im not good with computers so who knows).
BTW did I mention this is my all time favourite fantasy trilogy!!
