Review: Isobelle Carmody’s “The Sending (The Obernewtyn Chronicles, Book 6)”

by writereaderly

isobelle carmody the sendingAnd on the Obernewtyn series goes, with loving and questing both reaching new heights of urgency. Book 6 was good, and absorbing, and served its purpose as a functional, narrative-progressing tome. Little I can comment without spoilering it, so I’ll only say that it’s a worthy member of the Obernewtyn family and I’m most looking forward to the seventh and final doorstopper, due out some time this year. Oh, and I’m happy she has two women Misfits who are “bonded”. (And surely Dameon must be gay!?)
