The Perilous Gard Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Tton becomes involved in a series of mysterious events that lead her to an underground world pe. Elizabeth Marie Pope s The Perilous Gard taught me a lesson that what can get under one person s skin sink into their minds and out and out haunt them is nothing but a casual read to someone else alrighty I ve learned this lesson before But you know what they say if it didn t stick then you didn t really learn it When I read and fell in love with Gard I excitedly presented it to my twin whom I at least attempt to share with anything that matters to me Oh I read that years ago She didn t even think that it might appeal to me and she knows my interest in Tam Lin based stories grumbles Even if it didn t scream Mariel to her as it should have done Or not as I thought it would be something she would love only it wasn tSo I don t know if any descriptions I can muster up about the atmosphere of this book will convey much I don t know what is going to get to someone else Sometimes these things are like musical taste and what sounds good to someone else doesn t to anotherIt really got to me I cannot stand to be under ground in body or in mind One of the scariest moments of my life was a mandatory spelunking trip for a geology lab Reading about anything underground gets to me like not much else CS Lewis The Silver Chair is my earliest memory of an underground read freakout It s still my favorite in the Narnia chronicles Part of me wants the freakout but I m kinda sick anyway Reading about what Kate goes through and feeling like I was there with her was intense for me Kate s struggle to survive in that mindfuck of an underground faery land Well I know this is a Tam Lin story but I was riveted by her saving herself than her battle for Christopher from the fae ueen Luckily this is not a the boy is mine story Kate triumphs over her own fears and what she holds to be right in a world that beats you down in innate sickness Christopher is free to make his own decisions which was the important thing I wasn t all that invested in him as a love interest I didn t care about that I LOVED this depiction of the faery world Kate s mental energies were my hook line and sinkerThe beginning of the story is set in 1558 and Kate is shuffled back and forth to wherever she and her sister can best be used for political gain Her selfish sister ruins things for Kate in the court of ueen Mary Tudor Elizabeth makes a brief appearance herself Although this isn t that kind of historical drama I appreciated that neither Elizabeth or Mary are favored It was always confusing to read one book where Elizabeth is the hero and then another with Elizabeth as the bitch Taking sides now seems kinda silly to meThe setting is important to depict the ancient fae connections to the humans they need to pay tribute and how the changing of times threatens that way of life This isn t really an historical tale no matter what the packaging says or ahem my own book tags At least not to that specific time If anything one could argue any time after another would be like this made smaller Beliefs can change and change back Gard could have been set in any time and be relevant to itThe twin and I were like Heavenly Creatures without the matricide with our royal lines fixations We d love to read histories and then the historical fiction stories and make up our own dramas based off all of it Come to think I should ve known my twin had whacked out tastes She had an Oliver Cromwell phase in middle school That s just crazy Don t trust her word on The Perilous Gard I never had an Oliver Cromwell phase Book of the Fallen Reuiem #1 you know what they say if it didn t stick then Free Dirt you

The Perilous Gard Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Opled by Fairy Folk whose customs are even older than the Druids’ and include human sacrifice. Review originally published at Vintage NovelsElizabeth Marie Pope is an author of vintage YA historical fantasy whose books I ve been waiting to try out for uite a long time My opportunity came a few short months back when I finally tracked her books down on Open Library which is an amazing source for vintage and otherwise hard to find books I read The Sherwood Ring just before Christmas and found it every bit as adorable as I d ever heard it was though I had a couple of philosophical cautions but my interest was whetted in Pope s other book The Perilous Gard when a friend told me it was by far her favourite of the twoAt first I was a little unsure about this From the book s description I half expected it to be a typical pro pagan narrative about the niceness and feminist smarts of pre Christian Celtic cultureIn 1558 while exiled by ueen Mary Tudor to a remote castle known as Perilous Gard young Kate Sutton becomes involved in a series of mysterious events that lead her to an underground world peopled by Fairy Folk whose customs are even older than the Druids and include human sacrificeWell Yikes Was I wrong I obviously didn t read the description uite carefully enough whose customs include human sacrifice And so And soKatherine Sutton is clumsy tart cleverand accustomed to getting the blame for the crazy schemes thought up by her impulsive sister Alicia So she isn t really surprised when an ill advised letter to ueen Mary complaining about living conditions at Hatfield Manor with Princess Elizabeth results in her own exile to a castle in the craggy forests of Derbyshire Upon her arrival Kate is mystified by the inhabitants suspicious behaviour the mysterious Holy Well in the valley behind the castle the old legends of elves and fairies surrounding the castle itselfand the peculiar behaviour of Christopher Heron the younger brother of the castle s lord who lives in a leper s hut eking out an agonising penance for the disappearance of a child for whom he was responsible When Kate figures out what happened to little Cecily Christopher comes up with a wild plan to recover her from the half legendary People of the Hill and Kate almost against her will is also swept into the strange land under the HillI was astonished to find how many elements The Perilous Gard shared with my own new release The Bells of Paradise to the extent that I m glad I didn t read the former until after the latter s publication Both stories include elements of the old tale of Tam Lin The Perilous Gard is an intriguing retelling of the story Both stories are set during the reign of ueen Mary and the accession of Elizabeth I strikes a note of resolution near the end And both stories take place in the wild woods of DerbyshireUnlike Bells however The Perilous Gard demythologises Tam Lin and the fairies somewhat Kate a very rational sensible heroine discounts out of hand the idea of anything being particularly magical about the People of the Hill The ending gives no than a hint that they might be anything but very different very strange human pagans Now normally I don t like it when modernists suck all the magic out of old legends Tales like King Arthur and the Trojan War lose all their stature when they re retold in strictly mundane terms The Perilous Gard however avoids this trap in two ways One of those ways is by telling a story of real emotional import a story with a great sense of beauty and nobility The other way is how Pope gives us a wonderful counter myth to the ugly bloody pagan myth of the People of the Hill a very clear unambiguous Christian message I was so stunned with this I almost couldn t believe my eyes when I first encountered itHow can you tell what I meant to do How can I How can anyone I think the damned souls in hell must spend half their time wondering what it was that they really meant to doIf you think the damned in hell spend their time doing that then you can t know very much about the damned in hell Kate retorted furiously I am utterly at suares with this childish dealing Why in the name of heaven don t you go down to the village and make a proper confession to the priest and let him tell you what penance you ought to be laying on yourself You aren t one of the damned in hell We re all of us under the MercyAs I ve often told people you can include just about any Christian theme in a story so long as it fits organically into the context of the people you re writing about All the same I was staggered by how unapologetic and yet how fitting this theme was In this story the pagans were bad though not without their own cultural beauty and grace and the Christians were good And the Christian myth was pitted against the pagan myth and came away triumphant in a way that fitted very well into the story and yet at the same time was delightfully uncompromisingI was stunnedAdd to this a tale that wrenches your heart an often witty and hilarious romance and if it s a little predictably mid century in flavour well it s still very cute and a gorgeous writing style that fleshes out the setting beautifully and you have one of the best works of girls YA I ve ever been privileged to read My only complaint really would be that the world building for the Under the Hill segments was a little underdone in some regards But apart from that I loved this book was utterly gripped and deeply satisfied How Bizarre young Kate Sutton becomes involved in a series of mysterious events that lead her to an underground world peopled by Fairy Folk whose customs are even older than the Druids and

The Perilous Gard Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In 1558 while exiled by ueen Mary Tudor to a remote castle known as Perilous Gard young Kate Su. Gosh I had forgotten so much since I first read this I read it a couple of years back and every time I thought of the book I had fond memories but why exactly it had that effect was slipping from my memory Honestly I read this book because it was labeled fantasy and at the time that was all I would read and it was one of the only books in the library I hadn t read it was a very small library The cover wasn t glittery or a standout in anyway but I dived in regardless of the cover This book is one those hidden gems not too many people know about it but those who do love this storyKate is a lady in waiting for Lady Elizabeth but because of a certain uestionable letter that her sister Alicia sends to ueen Mary she is sent away to live at the Perilous Gard There are many tales regarding this place but Kate being the level headed girl she is doesn t put much thought to the wild tales That is of course until she gets there and sees that maybe all the fairy talk about the place might have some merit While she is there she meets Christopher Heron and she finds out fairly uickly that his carrying a huge burden on his shoulders and yup you guessed it it all has to do with the fairies Both Kate and Christopher find themselves immersed in this world that is not as magical as everyone assumesOf course the true standout thing from all this for me was the dynamic between Kate and Christopher I have never seen a relationship uite like theirs It s just so perfect because there isn t a single drop of over the topness in sight Kate herself is a strong character and never backs down even when it seems there is no hope She can appreciate attributes that the fairy people have but never condones them for their behavior Something very hard for any noraml human being to do I absolutely loved the climatic scene It was done just the right way Really no complaints at all even if at the end I wanted sigh The life of the reader huh Always feeling a little robbed but somehow always going back for Really all that aside do pick up the book Any fans of this type of literature are guaranteed to fall in extreme like for the story of Kate and her journey
