The World of Celta - Re-read Challenge

7/01/2009 01:11:00 PM / Posted by Kris /

Well, I had a long post about a bunch of books that I read and wrote a review before I left for camp and it got lost some where on the internet. Then I went to camp for a week and had very spotty internet so did not do any posts, but I got a lot of reading done. I got into a major romantic fantasy mode and wanted to re-read Robin D. Owens' Celta series. So I started with Heart Mate and am just finished up the latest book, Heart Fate. The next book Heart Change comes out in November.

The characters are memorable, and the world building is great. The storylines are not cookie cutter at all so each one is very interesting to read. My favorite of the series is probably Heart Fate because the characters had both been through so much and were so damaged that it was nice to see them heal and bond. I would definitely suggest reading them in order or you miss some of the storylines. But they can be read alone if that is what you have.

Great series, I love them and they will definitely remain on my keeper shelves. If you have not read these and enjoy fantasy romance you have to try these out.

I've seen a lot of favorable reviews for these books around the net so I picked up the books from the thrift store whenever I found them. I almost have the complete series so far, but believe I might be missing book 4.

Glad you like them!

I read one of those, or part of it anyway a few years ago. I think it was Heart Choice. I don't know, I never finished it and I don't think it was that I didn't like it, I ithink it had more to do with the fact that I kept feeling like I should have started from the beginning, so stopped reading. I think about trying it again. Maybe I should and pick up the first book, first!

I've been thinking about reading this series. I'll be borrowing the first part from a friend and buying the rest of them if it turns out to be a good series. I usually like these kind of books, so let's keep our fingers crossed!
