Yay for unexpectedly good books! I was nervous starting the Silver Hand because it's predecessor the Paradise War was not my cup of tea. Turns out that Lawhead changed narrators, causing the biggest things that didn't work to be the biggest things that did. These stories are modern takes on strait celtic mythology. Having the narrator be of the world, understanding and accepting all of it, made me able to understand some of it's odder rhythms. I loved how all the characters had to journey to be come the best that they could be. I understand that in the next book the point of view shifts back to the original character. Hopefully it still works out!
