ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy LiteraturePatricia McKillip is a must read author for any true lover of fantasy literature With a voice all her own she imbues her work both the story and the style with beauty magic and wonder Her latest novel The Bards of Bone Plain is just as enchanting as I was expecting it to be I listened to Audible Frontiers version read by Marc Vietor and Charlotte Parry a nice combinationScholar Phelan Cle is nearly finished studying to be a bard and he s ready to graduate He s chosen a fairly easy and unambitious topic for his final paper something that s been written about many times before the myth of Bone Plain Is it a real place If so where is it and what happened there to Nairn the legendary harpist who disappeared during the first bardic competition hundreds of years ago Expecting to write a rather dull and inconclusive paper like all the previous dull and inconclusive papers Phelan is surprised to discover that his alcoholic father archeologist Jonah Cle knows about Nairn s story than the scholars do Finally Phelan s interest is piued and he sets out in earnest to uncover the pastMeanwhile Princess Beatrice is literally uncovering the past Much to her mother s embarrassment Beatrice prefers to hang out in Jonah Cle s underground archeological digs in her dusty dungarees rather than attend palace garden parties When she unearths a strange piece of jewelry she starts looking for the meaning of the unknown runes carved in itBut she s not the only one interested in ancient runes So is Kelda the mysterious bard who s competing against all the other musicians who aspire to be the king s new court bard Also competing is Phelan s friend Zoe daughter of the palace steward who s helping Phelan with his data collection During the competition it all comes to a head as Phelan s research Beatrice s ancient discoveries and Zoe s talent collideThe Bards of Bone Plain combines the arts and sciences and mysteries of archeology music language and history to create a multi layered story that s sure to satisfy both sides of your brain I enjoyed the academic atmosphere and the way that Phelan s research paper was used as alternating chapters to present Nairn s story In the audiobook edition only these chapters are read by Charlotte Parry so that they are clearly set apartThe characters are well done though there are so many important ones that we don t get to know them all as well as we d like to I especially liked Princess Beatrice who drives a steam powered car and is always trying to balance her courtly duties with her dirty hobbies She hates the social events she s reuired to attend but she knows that if she pushes her mother too far she ll be shipped off to the country to live with her sister s family Beatrice s social blunders and her interactions with her family are delightfully humorousIf you re familiar with Patricia McKillip then you know she writes in a somewhat dreamy and fanciful style that though lyrical and lovely is occasionally misty and vague While the plot of The Bards of Bone Plain is fairly straight forward McKillip s romantic style shrouds some aspects of the plot and characters in mysteries that are never completely cleared up This sense of wonder is part of what makes her stories work so well as fantasy The Bards of Bone Plain is another McKillip novel that leaves the reader in awe It s a

The Bards of Bone Plain review Ö 108 Patricia A. McKillip ↠ 8 Read Read ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Patricia A. McKillip Ghter When they unearth a disk marked with ancient runes Beatrice pursues the secrets of a lost language that she suddenly notices all around her hidden in plain sight. ARC borrowed from my husband s to review pile This is the third McKillip book I ve read this year that made sense than 75% of the time I jest because I love her books but it does get irritating when they wander off into abstraction and don t actually resolve the plot The structure worked well flipping back and forth each chapter between a handful of modern characters and the story of the fabled bard Nairn whose chapters are headed first by an excerpt from a scholarly paper and then followed by actual narration of his life You have the usual fantasyMcKillip cast of royals and commoners including bards in this case as Phelan a bardic student unravels the mysteries of his past and his archaeologist father I was slightly amused at the inclusion of lots of steam technology in the modern sections I guess steampunk trappings are just inescapable in fantasy at this point although they don t sit well with the author s usual gorgeous medieval settings I was reminded of course of her Riddlemaster trilogy since a lot of the book involves harping and musicalmagical battles and while the book resolves satisfyingly enough I felt like it was conceived with a larger scope Three books would have been a stretch but a second book or lengthening this one would have been nice if only because all the modern sections take place in one city as do most of the historical ones and the slight hinting at the larger world made me want the characters to explore it Overall enjoyable though and I would recommend it to friends who hadn t read McKillip and wanted a straightforward introduction than some of her other books
