    There s just something frustrating about this book.It just doesn t quite seem to get where it s going.The story starts out with this really run of the mill prince That sounds like an oxymoron, but it s not He s ruler of this really simple, down to earth place called Hed and is just an incredibly unpretentious character Despite being the

    2019 Review It s been a long time since I reread this I have a lot of fond memories found it quite good again, although I really like realism in my novels now This is an epic fantasy, quite lyrical in nature It s like a complex fairy tale beautiful in that way If you like that sort of thing, this is a 5 star read that I can t recommend highly enough.Unfortunately, I seem to have become a grump A farmer who has that much of a problem with death Bacon doesn t grow at the store butchering Snogg s pigs had to be a regular chore plus he hunted Well, I guess the Quakers were similar Still, it rankled.The book ends on a cliff hanger, a really big reveal that rocked me back on my heels, then it ends Ugh MUST READ THE NEXT BOOK NOW Thankfully, I have the full trilogy now I didn t the first time through Be warned Get all 3 books before starting the first read in order Original review from when I joined GR in 2007 I last read this book some time ago, but have reread it a couple of times McKillip captured me with this book immediately because I just loved the hero In the first few pages, she draws him so well in such a novel way that just tickled me view spoiler We find that he s the ruling prince he winds up wrestling his brother in a mud puddle, hide spoiler

    Fantasy without any fantastic Riddles without any riddles More accurately, what here is described as riddle figuring is actually history mythology research But I guess that The Primary and Secondary Document Seeker of Hed doesn t exactly roll off the tongue Characters should be great by what they do I don t want to be told how clever and d

    This is the first book of a closely connected trilogy if you plan to read it, you may want to have the next book on hand I read The Riddle Master of Hed as part of the Riddle Master The Complete Trilogy omnibus.Morgon is the land ruler of Hed, a non descript, undramatic, peaceful, and very agrarian island off the coast of a land with a vivi

    A very impressive novel McKillip is both an impressive storyteller and author, showing her intricate skill in this the first part of the Riddlemaster Trilogy Mysterious, at times chilling, and with fascinating characters, The Riddlemaster of Hed reminds me of Le Guin and, to some extent Tolkien, authors who I believe to be masters of fantasy

    Morgon of Hed rules his small kingdom But it s nothing fancy and Morgon even has to help his subjects mend their roofs He s of a village chief than a king, really But he has one thing going for him he is a whiz at solving riddles This is how he defeated the ghost king of Aum and got away with his life Morgan has a destiny three stars on his

    4.5 This book surprised me I found it in the local used bookstore, and I liked the cover and the title, but I put off reading it because I didn t know if it would be compelling enough Well, I was captivated right away by McKillip s writing style and by her protagonist, Morgon Then, the story line drew me in The plot is so mysterious who is<

    There are books that I pull from my shelves to re read every few years They may be romantic thrillers or science fiction or fantasy or classics What they all have in common is superb story telling, characters who are as familiar to me as friends and family, and worlds so detailed and engrossing that I am transported there as soon as I open the

    A lovely trilogy that somehow manages to balance an epic scope while being focused on just two people trying to figure out who they are This first book is about Morgon, a farmer with a knack for answering riddles a bit like Zen koans who was born with three stars on his head Yes, this is the Chosen One of the Ancient Prophecy trope that I hate

    I love this trilogy far beyond reason, so I won t try to give a reasoned review I will give a few words of advice, though The first book is in no way a stand alone story The trilogy only makes sense if you read the entire trilogy much like a book of the Lord of the Rings than a Harry Potter book that can be enjoyed on its own terms apart from th
