#BookReview: Misfortune of Vision (Druid's Brooch #4) by Christy Nicholas @greendragon9




About the Book:
~ Prophecy can be dangerous ~

In 12th century Ireland, Orlagh has been Seer to her king for forty years. He doesn’t want to hear her prophecies of war and destruction, and dismisses her efforts to warn him. Therefore, she is determined to fulfill her own quest: to find a worthy heir for her magical brooch.

In the course of events, she must pass judgment on a thief, escape a Norman war camp, and battle wits with a Fae lord. She receives some prophecy of her own and enlists the help of a grizzled old warrior, who happens to be a long–time friend.

About the Author:
Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada)

Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. 

Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. 

She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. 

Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This one was great. I was really scared about reading book four but it worked out well.  These can be read in any order and it really made me want to pick up the other books. I just wish they were in print.  Though .99 for a book is really cheap!! 

Check out author's other books? YES
Recommend this book? YES

Notes and Opinions:  Just WOW! I thought I was just going to read a few pages of this one but ended up finishing it just under 4 hours.  Man this book was REALLY QUICK! It has some great interwining stories of the characters which all had their own voices and were fully formed. As well as one killer story! I will so be checking out the other books in this series and my only issue was that it was pretty short. Just over 300 pages.  The blend of history and magic was so well done that if you would have been there it would have felt normal.  I love these kinds of stories.  I could see fans of Outlander and the Mists of Avalon and the like loving this series. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Can be read out of order
