    Free download An Earthly Knight · PDF DOC TXT or eBook An Earthly KnightThis was another reread basically to match The Perilous Gard since they’re both Tam Lin themed This one is a mite traditional and sticks pretty close to the ballad rather than being based on the situation the ballad lays out and then growing in other directions The interesting thing is that it brings in another ballad one I’m less familiar with ‘Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight‘ That and the medieval historical setting ground the fairytale elements very well

    Free download An Earthly Knight · PDF DOC TXT or eBook An Earthly KnightI have had this book sitting on my bookshelves for so long and yesterday I finally picked it up and read it It was OK I suppose but I felt it lacked any kind of depth The romance for instance is unconvincing beyond belief; Jenny and Tam Lin meet briefly three times before they avow passionate love for each other but I still wasn't feeling it Jenny's falling pregnant out of wedlock to a 'madman' whilst her betrothal to the King of Scotland's brother is being arranged doesn't really seem to bother anybody much and the 'battle' for Tam Lin between the Faerie ueen and Jenny is anticlimactic and over in about three sentences Actually I find that with most of the Tam Lin retellings; the struggle never seems hard enoughI will also add that although I am no medieval

    Free download An Earthly Knight · PDF DOC TXT or eBook An Earthly KnightI went through a phase a few years ago where I sought out every retelling of the Tam Lin story that I could get my hands on So the title An Earthly Knight was instantly familiar to me and I knew I needed to read this book I was especially intrigued by the author's choice to return the story to its original setting medieval ScotlandUnfortunately the historical aspect falls a little flat McNaughton has a tendency to get a bit infodump y I wasn't familiar with the politics of that time and place and so I appreciated being brought up to speed but there has to have been a deft way of doing it than having one character expounding history to another character who already knew that historyI also wasn't thrilled with the romance Tam Lin was too Generically Nice and his rival Earl William was too one dimensionally nasty If Tam Lin needed a foil I'd have preferred either a bad man who was charming on the surface or an honorable man

    Free download An Earthly Knight · PDF DOC TXT or eBook An Earthly KnightAn Earthly Knight is based both on the story of Tam Lin and on the aftermath of the story in a ballad or well a group of ballads called 'Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight' It's interesting how it weaves those two stories together and also pulls in the threads of historical fiction I don't know how accurate the historical fiction aspect of it is given that it's totally not my area of history but it seemed reasonably believable for the period and it didn't feel like it
