Book Review: Druid’s Sword, by Sara Douglass (2010)

This is the final novel to the Troy Game saga authored by Sara Douglass. Druid’s Sword brings an ending to a somewhat repetitive story that if I am to be truly honest wasn’t quite what I had expected. I’m not entirely sure if its because of the repetition of events from past lives especially those which have been repeated in previous novels, or because of the storyline itself. The introduction of an adolescent Grace and Catling really tip the scales into the realm of the new, but all in all I felt as though I was rereading books already read. … Continue reading Book Review: Druid’s Sword, by Sara Douglass (2010)
