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

I’ve received notification that the last book will be in my hands in days. Maruman, the mad old cat who guards Elspeth’s dreams, protects her as best he can.

I shall carry on reading and I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next. Oh except realise that the trap the Misfits were going to lead the soldierguards into was also going to be a trap for them! Apr isobflle, Gwendolyn rated it it was amazing.

Lists with This Book. Okay, I remembered this book much more than I thought I did- which I don’t necessarily consider a good thing! Inspired by Your Browsing History. I myself like the fact thd the main protagonist is a girl, and not a wimpy complaining, needed to be rescued love object type of female.


Aug 10, Bree T rated it really liked it Shelves: I had grown to like him in the other books though we didn’t see much of him there either but I just sort of forgot about him here, he just wasn’t around enough.

Then again, Elspeth has been established as being dense on occasions re: Ashes in the Snow Movie Tie-In.

Here the Destroyer looks for her and she must keeling that danger in order to continue on her quest. Once the book does get moving it’s interesting, but I don’t know weather it’s because I’ve kepeing r This is definitly the weak link in the series. Well, this book throws a whole bunch of information at you while you scramble to try piece everything together, while at he same time try to follow along with all your favourite characters.

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

I think that Carmody could have sped everything up a little bit without losing any of the tension. Isobelle Carmody not only transports readers entirely into the realms which she portrays but also enables them to share the deep emotions of the keepinv whom she portrays, which is one of the central reasons I have fallen for the Obernewtyn Chronicals. The books are complex, the characters well rounded and the plot imaginative.

I look forward to reading the next book still, and to see if all of these strands will be as satisfying as their build up. I rather think that that’s what fantasy is for, in a way – you’ve heard me go on about that before on other reviews.

The few important points could be summed up in a paragraph or so; didn’t Carmody have an editor for this thing I’m guessing not a good one at any rate–also there are many isobeole typos and grammar errors? When one is hidden in the past, Elspeth must travel the Dreamtrails, stalked by a terrifying beast, with Maruman, her cat, as guide and protector.
