Seriously, no wonder she felt she had to include a three-place tiny font dictionary at the front of the novel, but surely the fact she felt she needed one should’ve been a warning light? ,eeping

The Keeping Place: The Obernewtyn Chronicles Volume 4 by Isobelle Carmody – Penguin Books Australia

On to book 5: I’m really starting to get in to this series now! Elspeth is determined, intelligent, spunky and interesting. Not too frequently yet, but those more minor characters who pop up occasionally and both have names starting with ‘M’ or some such.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I carmoody I have all the paper books here beside the last one.

The Keeping Place: The Obernewtyn Chronicles Volume 4

There’s been a fundamental shift by the end of it, but there’s still so much more to go. I don’t normally review books, but the state of the kindle version of this book has set my teeth on edge. Spring is arriving to the highlands, where Obernewtyn – the big sprawling mansion and farm that is home to a large group of Talented and unTalented Misfits and animals – lies protected by the mountains and a snowed-in pass, but the events of the previous year are still fresh in everyone’s minds.

Oh my poor heart.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Jun 04, Lara rated it it was ok Shelves: The first part of the book just followed Elspeth around in her daily nothings with a few dreams related to the plot thrown in.


I think the last three books will be worth it. I always felt so cheated! One clue is lost in the past, forcing Elspeth to travel the Dreamtrails, stalked by a terrifying winged beast, with the cat, Maruman, as her guide and guardian.

Maruman is called Mammari like 12 times, Sutrium carmodt called Surriam, the word “th'” as spoken by the northerners is typed “tii” more than once, and there are hyphens where there shouldn’t be as in coerc-ivity?

The second half is planning and action for the rebellion, and things move swiftly. Oh except realise that the trap the Misfits were going to lead the soldierguards into was also going to be a trap for them!

I would call the series more fantasy than sci-fi but it has elements of both. I love fantasy like this, the kind that subtly connects dots and, even, not so subtly waves little red flags over certain issues. I found Elspeth to always be rambling in monologue, the descriptions were long and tedious, the plot was going in circles, the dailogue was bland Wait, no, that’s not entirely true; I was also I devoured the third book in this series–it had me absolutely captivated.

But part three isobellle it was great! Dragon, the wild girl Elspeth rescued from some Beforetime ruins in The Farseekersstill lies in her coma, locked in her recurring dream of the past that she had sealed off in her mind – only Elspeth now realises that Dragon’s powerful empathy-coercer talent is letting her dreams affect everyone at Obernewtyn, and no one is sleeping well.

And I was considering it. But Elspeth must also seek out clues left by the long-dead seer, Kasanda, vital to her quest to destroy the Beforetime weaponmachines. She seeks carmoody in her quest to destroy Beforetime weaponmachines.

Oh, what a disappointment! Fans of the series are already in, I know, but this is a book you wouldn’t want to miss anyway. The first two parts of the story could easily have been just one part – this book fell into the trap that a lot of fantasy books fall into.


Elspeth and several others travel to Sutrium to meet with the Rebel leaders and find out what they want. The books are complex, the characters well rounded and the plot imaginative.

Read more Read less. But it was super obvious that Dragonwas the Red Queen or at least her daughter. Yet Elspeth must also seek out clues left by a long-dead seer, Kasanda, necessary to her quest to destroy the Beforetime weaponmachines. The Girl with the Broken Heart. Her dreams aid her ekeping she witnesses the past, though they are also dangerous, not just from the manifestation of Dragon’s insanity, but from the Destroyer himself, keepinv turns out to be Ariel, the beautiful but cruel Misfit who fled Obernewtyn all keepping years ago and now works his twisted magic on both the Council and the Herder Faction.

The whole plot line is complicated and involves over zealous religious groups, big brother government, rebel groups, and gypsies.

Return to Book Page. I give it three and a half. But there are traitors within the Rebel ranks, and many Rebel leaders despise the Misfits, so that they kesping betrayed more than once. Her strong aura causes all around her in Obernewtyn to experience nightmares. Only there can she learn more of the Beforetimer Misfits and their enemy, Govamen.

They immediately believe that a rebel has kidnapped their Master as Rushton had refused letting the Misfits join the rebellion. Elspeth must continue her search for the clues which will lead her to find the catche of dormant weapons which destroyed the earth. North American Editions 4. Jan 20, Sarah rated it liked it.
