Recensione

"Comparisons with other great sci-fi and fantasy writers are inevitable, and I would not hesitate to put this into the same short-list as David Eddings or Robert Jordan." - Baily's Hunting Directory "I'm certainly looking forward to The Ways of Winter, and would recommend To Carry The Horn to anyone who likes Celtic mythology, mysteries, or stories involving ordinary people taken to fantasy realms." - Otherwhere Gazette. "A blend of hunting and fantasy fiction, and the first entry in The Hounds of Annwn series, To Carry the Horn takes the reader into a world of magic and ancient rivalries where hunting with hounds plays a significant role in life and law. Well-written and finely detailed, this book provides an excellent opportunity for some enjoyable hours of escapism, particularly when read on a chilly winter evening before a cozy fire." - In and Around Horse Country. "To Carry The Horn is an intriguing piece of fantasy that paints, through Myers' artistic eye, a vivid picture of a parallel otherworld where hounds and hunting are an integral part of daily life. A riveting read for anyone with ties to the chase, To Carry The Horn sets the scene for the next stand-alone entry in the extended series, The Ways of Winter. To tell the truth, we can't wait." - Middleburg Life.

L'autore

Karen Myers is the author of the best-selling novel To Carry the Horn, the first entry in the series The Hounds of Annwn, a contemporary Wild Hunt fantasy set in a fae otherworld version of the Virginia Piedmont. She is currently working on a new fantasy series, The Affinities of Magic, following a young wizard who launches an industrial revolution of magic. More information is available at Perkunas Press.

A graduate of Yale University from Kansas City, Karen has lived with her husband, David Zincavage, in Connecticut, New York, Chicago, California, and more recently in the lovely foxhunting country of Virginia where they followed the activities of the Blue Ridge Hunt, the Old Dominion Hounds, the Ashland Bassets, and the Wolver Beagles.

3.0 su 5 stelle All right, if you don't mind reading a few things about horseback hunting and hounds 27 novembre 2012
Di Ambra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The MC, George Talbot Traherne, goes out hunting in Virginia and ends up in Annwn (faerieland) in the middle of a crime scene: Iolo, the Wild Hunt's huntsman has been murdered. It also turns out that George is a descendant of Gwyn Annan, lord of Annwn, and said lord asks him to lead the Hunt in Iolo's stead since he seems to be able to command the hounds. On the Wild Hunt's success depends the stability of Gwyn's continued reign. The plot revolves around the murder investigations, George's training as huntsman and a mystery about George's origins (he's got too much magic to be only a far removed descendant of Gwyn). The story was good, it had a lot of potential and I think I will read the next book. BUT something didn't grab me as the books I really love do. George fell a bit flat to me: I didn't feel for him. The story concentrated too much on things I didn't care a lot about and less on things I would have liked to know more about. For example, the training with the hounds took up a lot of the story (yes, I get that the Hunt is what the story was about so it WAS pretty important...) and I wasn't so much interested in the relationships between dogs (not useful note: I don't dislike dogs) while I would have liked to know something more about the land, the other lords, magic and George's relationship with Angharad... that's it, I think: not a bad book but not one that I seriously loved.
5.0 su 5 stelle Welsh mythology, hunts, hounds, and intrigue galore - oh my! 19 gennaio 2014
Di Kathryn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

In writing a fantasy novel incorporating themes she clearly knows and loves, Karen Myers has created a fresh, creative and completely engaging story peopled with a cast of memorable characters. I have no experience or prior knowledge of hunting and hounds, but found myself surprisingly engrossed by this aspect of the story because Myers presents the details with such expertise and fondness. The hunting scenes are as exhilarating as any more conventional “chase” scenes, and while one always expects to encounter magic in the world of the fae, in this case it is done with such a deft touch that it seems natural and not heavy-handed. The world of Annwn seems like a sort of kinder, gentler Westeros of “Game of Thrones” fame, but just as rife with intrigue, plotting and relatives with dubious motives. By the time I reached some of the climactic scenes I was envisioning what a fantastic movie (or series!) this would make, and I’m hooked for the follow-ups.

5.0 su 5 stelle wonderul journey 20 giugno 2013
Di Joan S. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
After my initial confusion, like his, it was a great story. I am attracted by the idea that there is this option they have of going back and forth between worlds. I'm glad they don't but the idea that they can makes the whole thing more appealing. I especially love the hounds and horses. I like the mix of lore and I feel quite invested in the character. I wish there was a map in the Kindle version so I could see where they were going and what the relationship is to the other world. The parallel is one of the attractive things and I hope she will use it at times. Well worth the time. I'm looking forward to reading more.
5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful lead to a series 22 luglio 2013
Di Patroo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I love this book, and look forward to reading the rest of the series. The horsemanship and foxhunting stuff is spot on, and it's a refreshing change to see some different Fae, with a Welsh basis instead of the semi-Arthurian and old Englande faerie world.

I wish I had not waited so long to read this group of books.

As someone else also mentioned, the formatting and spelling is very well done. I've only noticed a couple of minor issues thus far, momentos instead of mementos, and a spare ampersand, relic of conversion to Kindle, I'm sure.

I love the characters, particularly the lutins, and the Welsh-type ponies entrance my soul.

5.0 su 5 stelle Couldn't put the book down! Wonderful fantasy story! 2 gennaio 2013
Di Rebecca J. Boyd - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Karen Myer's To Carry the Horn: The Hounds of Annwn is a wonderful fantasy that I found hard to put down. From the start, the intrigue and mystery of the Great Hunt draws the reader in to wanting more. This fantasy novel ranks right up there with Tolkien's Ring Series and The Hobbit and The Harry Potter Series. I learned a lot about fox hunting, too!
