Reviews Megge of Bury Down

  • Shomeret
    Megge of Bury Down is a historical fantasy. It's the first novel by Rebecca Kightlinger who writes reviews for the Historical Novel Society. I chose to read this book because I like paranormal content, but if you are one of those who like your historical fiction without such elements, Megge of Bury Down probably won't be for you. I received a review copy from the publisher via Net Galley in return for this review.The historical aspect of Megge of...

    Full review up on my blog:Http://www.booksrfab.blogspot.comI must be honest this book does have a slow start, however if you are willing to stick around for a few chapters you find yourself hooked. Wondering where Megge’s destiny is going to take her. Will she finally open The Book of Seasons and become a women of Bury Down? This is a great twist on a coming of age story, that many can relate to today. A young girl struggle with walking the pat...

Seven years pass, and she has 4 guardians Mother, Aunt Claris, Morwen, and Aleydis. Another thing she has is a constant conflict going on between her and her cousin Brighida.

    Megge of Bury Down is a story of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and facing up to hard truths. At six, Megge was too afraid to take up her mother's book and at eleven, all she can do is watch as her cousin, Brighida the golden child, shines in everything Megge has refused. She feels like an outcast, even in her own family, but cannot find the courage to do the one thing that would make a difference: open The Book of Seasons.The novel follows Meg...

    Some books you just have a spiritual connection with.You know what I mean? I’m sure that if I ask you which book you’ve had a heart relationship with, you could immediately pull to mind a title or two (or twelve).I was recently going through a period of pretty high anxiety, and really needed a story that I could just sink into. One that felt a little slower-paced. A little magical. A journey, more than an adventure.Welcome to Megge of Bury Do...

    I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Megge of Bury Down was one of those books that I hated to put down. I went without sleep and was late for work because I could not stop reading. Megge has a fate, a duty, she is supposed to accept as a young woman of Bury Down but she fears what she has to do to take her vow. Because of her fears there is an overwhelming sense of isolation in her character as her mother, aunt, and cousin al...

    I found Megge of Bury Down to be a slower-paced novel than I am used to reading and initially found it a bit hard going. But once you get the pace and feel of the characters, and once the storyline begins to unfold, you realise that you are reading a slow-burning epic, with the protagonist (Megge) on a journey of self-discovery, growing both in years and self-confidence as she struggles to find her place in a world in which she worries she doesn...

    I picked up this book and due to school reading and work, could NOT finish it as fast as I would have liked. Given the option, I would have sat reading this book all day and all night until getting to the conclusion. Having finished it, I am now sad as it is the first in a series and I am eager to get to the next phase in the world of Megge. This book is unconventional in its portrayal of strong women in the 13th century in England. The story cen...

    This book was very hard to get into. It does not grab you until you are about halfway through the book. I actually had to re-start the book three times to understand the jump in time and even then I didn't quite understand everyone's placement in the story until the very end. I gave this book four (4) stars because it was hard to follow. The story lines were wonderful once you got the understanding of them. You felt for the characters, but you al...

    *SENT TO ME VIA SMITH PUBLICITY I could not finish this. You would think for a plot line like this it would dive right in but it doesn’t. It has a lot of medical stuff which is understandable for it to be a witch accusing like Book but they did not go further on with it. This had so much potential and I wish I would have liked it more.

    I am trying so hard not to finish this book too quickly BUT I CAN'T STOP READING! I promise myself I'll only read one or two chapters and then BAM I've read 10! I love getting to know the characters, learning their lineage and watching them follow their destinies. I think the addition of the online link ( to maps and name/location pronunciations was a fantastic idea! Looking forward to volume 2!
