The Mountain’s Call: A stinker

I really thought I would like Caitlin Brennan’s White Magic Trilogy, I really did! The Mountain’s Call started off so well, very Harry Potter-like with the herioine headed off to this mystical school where she was to learn about the White Horse Gods… but as it went on and on and on… it lost its thrill.

The plot, though intending to become more intense, only became more and more dull. The whole plot is culminating in this “Dance” and though it is obviously important to the story, Caitlin Brennan fails to explain why this “dance” is so important. I guess it can change the course of stuff… but who really cares?

Mostly,The Mountain’s Call is made up of lots of sex and torture, two things that in my opinion are not really related, so all and all this book was a stinker.

fantasy and science fiction book reviewsJulie Waineo, one of our earliest guest reviewers, earned an MBA at Bowling Green State University. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies with a minor in French. Now living in Virginia with her husband and dog, Julie is an avid reader of not only fantasy, but historical fiction, the occasional “chick lit,” and children’s literature.

The White Magic Trilogy — (2004-2006) Publisher: Tales are told of the mysterious, powerful Mountain where the gods — powerful beings in the form of white horses — live. But Valeria knows no woman has ever been called to the Mountain. Until she feels a strange pull and answers the call — as a boy…. When her secret is discovered Valeria loses all that she’s won. Her anger and frustration with the Empire might be enough to give the barbarians a way into the Mountain. And so the Empire now depends on the will, the strength and the loyalty of one Rider. A Rider who has been rejected by all but the gods…
