WELL I CRIED ARE YOU HAPPY NOW ROSEMARY SUTCLIFF It s so weird When I read The Shield Ring my first Sutcliff book a few weeks ago I had the exact same experience I was reading along merrily enjoying myself greatly thinking wow this is a really solid fun story until just about the next to last chapter and then out of the blue stuff happened And I was crying Like a lot Dang it woman What are these emotions you re trying to give me I am the Girl Who Does Not Cry Over Books you re ruining my reputation P Things I loved All the characters really Specifically Marcus Dear proud outwardly stiff inwardly soft as custard Marcus He was a wonderful hero and I loved following his uest to restore his father s lost Eagle And to do ALL THAT on a lame leg respect let shearitfortheboy Esca HE LIKES PUPPIES Nuff said Esca and Marcus turning ever so slowly from master and slave to best friends It was done realistically I thought and I liked how even afterwards little sparks of distrust would flare up from time to time Neither man would be human if that were not so But I loved even how Marcus would summarily snuff out those sparks by getting in Esca s face and yelling something along the lines of You re important to me and I care about your welfare you numbskull and then they d be OK again Ah men P Cottia My sweet little spitfire with the candle flame of red hair I missed her on every page she didn t appear That s how vibrant a character she was Marcus and Cottia Uncle Auila He was rather a dear although crusty and it s not hard to see where Marcus comes by his Stiff Cold Mask Guern the Hunter tears falling The plot uest stories are always fun and this one was infused with so much nostalgia so much wistfulness so much dreaminess really that it captivated me utterly Marcus is a dreamer first and foremost Much as he would hate to hear me say this he s a hopeless romantic He believes so strongly in the power of a SYMBOL the lost Eagle of his father s dead Legion that he s willing to risk his life about nine hundred 9 0 0 times in uick succession in order to get it back It s incredible It s insane And I wouldn t have missed it for the world The descriptions Now I m gonna be honest here I didn t love them uite as much as Sutcliff s descriptions in The Shield Ring but they were still excellent uality I m basically writing down my slightly lessened enjoyment to the fact that Sutcliff is working to create a different visual ATMOSPHERE in this story than in the other book a Roman atmosphere rather than a Viking one and I simply like the Viking aesthetic a bit better The imagery in TSR has this very delicate very ethereal uality at the same time as it s all harsh and steely gray and iron bound That s my jam Whereas here in EOTN it s all about clarity the contrasts between light and darkness and the blood red of sunsets and roses and wine and military cloaks Tis beautiful but it doesn t 100% suit me I have no Roman blood in case you were wondering P The themes Oh dear There were SO MANY OF THEM PEOPLE So many good ones Symbols matter Ideas matter The past is a weight we always carry with us and yet by the same token it s not something we can conjure up at a simple command to recreate exactly as we d wish it to be The past does not exist to serve us But neither should we allow it to own us And perhaps most poignant No one whatever they ve done or whatever they ve suffered can ever be written off as a failure Ever WHICH IS WHY I CRIED SO HARD AT THE END CURSE YOU EVIL AUTHOR It was my Eagle once iamnotokay Finally can I just say I adore the whole Dolphin Ring subplot I can t wait to see where it shows up in the next book I can t wait to see what Marcus builds with his new future and where it leads for the generations to come 3 Content Battles happen and bloody wounds happen and primitive operations but none of these are terribly graphic This is old fashioned kids fiction after all There is a veryyyyyyyyyyyyyy light romance No language unless you count Marcus saying stuff about his gods whenever he s Put Out P Conclusion Where is the next book that I may read it
