READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ An Earthly Knight A cloud has descended over the household of Lady Jeanette Avenel The year is 1162 Sixteen year old Jenny has always enjoyed her freedom as second daughter of a Norman nobleman in Teviotdale Scotland But when Jenny's sister Isabel disgraces the family by running away with a dangerous suitor Jenny is thrust reluctantly into the role of elder daughter While Jenny worries about her sister's future he. This was another reread basically to match The Perilous Gard since they re both Tam Lin themed This one is a mite traditional and sticks pretty close to the ballad rather than being based on the situation the ballad lays out and then growing in other directions The interesting thing is that it brings in another ballad one I m less familiar with Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight That and the medieval historical setting ground the fairytale elements very well and make the whole thing feel solidUnlike with The Perilous Gard I didn t love it much this time than last but all the same I did appreciate the cleverness I think Because I knew it was there I was watching and waiting for it picking up on every hintAltogether it s a very satisfying story though it doesn t take many liberties with the story of Tam Lin it only embroiders it bringing in historical figures and contemporary politics If you know the ballad you know or less how the story goes unlike with The Perilous Gard there s no real wondering about how exactly things will come out Still the historical details make it emotional and the payoff satisfying I thinkOriginally posted here

An Earthly Knight is based both on the story of Tam Lin and on the aftermath of the story in a ballad or well a group of ballads called Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight It s interesting how it weaves those two stories together and also pulls in the threads of historical fiction I don t know how accurate the historical fiction aspect of it is given that it s totally not my area of history but it seemed reasonably believable for the period and it didn t feel like it was too info dumpy except perhaps when it came to the part about jousting If I want to read about the ins and outs of jousting I d be reading Sir Thomas Malory or suchlikeAnyway I enjoyed the story uite a lot I read it in three chunks interspersed with a mission that s frustrating me on Assassin s Creed Brotherhood I d happily have read it in one go if I hadn t been trying to get full synchronisation on that damn mission Hell On Wheels if anyone s curious one of Leonardo s war machine missions It wasn t the most in depth version in the world but it was very easy to read and the characters were if not exactly all fully fleshed out at least believable Jenny in particular given her conflicted feelings and her tendency to act out She seemed like a spoiled brat at times which well she kind of wasIt did seem to resolve very easily The first two hundred pages felt like set up and then the last sixty pages hardly seemed enough to resolve everything They did at least reasonably well but I felt like it came too easily somehowStill glad to read it although I don t think I d reread it PLI Structured Programming jousting tournaments she struggles to impress the aloof Earl William At the same time however she finds herself drawn to Tam L.
