Ch. 15: Tree and Star

I have enjoyed all of your fairy tales of Middle-earth, and "Tree and Star" is a welcome addition to the collection: a tale "breathed through silver" that fits neatly in JRRT's Perilous Realm.

The prose is lovely and has the cadence of a tale told around a hearth.  The vivid imagery has a sensual earthy quality, quite fitting for a mythic figure connected to fertility and for the creative impulse that sweeps up her acolyte.  

Looking forward to more additions to this appealing series!

Hi, Pan -
Whoops! Almost forgot to reply to your very appreciative comments!  Thanks for reading and especially for stopping to review!

>>The prose is lovely and has the cadence of a tale told around a hearth.

You know I strive for exactly that sense with the series--the Oral History feeling--good to know it works for you.  Ditto with the suggestion of fertility myths.

Thanks again, DW
