The White Raven

This haunting retelling of the tale of Tristan and Iseult here called Drustan and Esseilte in accordance with Celtic legend and language goes back to early versions before Mallory and Wagner to explore the nature of love duty and loyalty The story is told by Branwen cousin and companion to Esseilte daughter of the High King of Eriu Ireland The two young women save the life of a badly wounded harper later discovered to be Drustan who had killed Esseilte's beloved uncle and Branwen's. Edited to mention since people are telling me the other reviews didn t specify that the perpetrator of the triggery

Diana L. Paxson ½ 7 REVIEW

Sleeps with the king and falls in love with him For a while Esseilte and Drustan escape detection but eventually they are caught in circumstances that cannot be ignored leading to the tragic denouement This is a complex tale interweaving the political and religious conflicts of the sixth century when the ancient Druid religion still had a strong hold Paxson The Paradise Tree White Mare Red Stallion breathes life and wonder into one of the most romantic of the Celtic Germanic legend. 45 stars out of 5I thought that this story was very lovely The White Raven tells the tale of Drustan and Esseilte

    Does anyone else feel that Tristan and Isolde were the two most selfish people on the planet? So they drink a love potion you'd think that two reasonably intelligent people could grit their teeth say You know I hated you five minutes

    A fairly dry retelling of the Tristan Isolde story from the point of view of Isolde's cousinservant Branwen The scenery descriptions were lovely and the details of the festivals complete and scholarly but the characters were pretty wooden IsoldeEsseilte is just a selfish shrew the entire time TristanDrustan was mildly interesting

    This is a beautiful mix between historical romance and the fantasy of myth It is a grand story that's been told impeccably well I'm glad I picked this up when I randomly found it It is a most enjoyable addition
