The topic this Wednesday is ... Favorite Bookish Worlds
The mythical world of Partholon is full of magic and old worldliness. Partholon is a parallel universe and it felt like you were thrown back in time with tons of fantastical things, like centaurs, goddesses, and magic portals mixed in with castles, big gold jewelry and lavish outfits, wine for every meal and hot male servants and other fun medieval-ish stuff. The entire series didn't take place in Partholon, some of it took place in our "real" world during present day. Which I liked because it allowed for some nice contrast and really made Partholon seem all the more magical.
The books are fun to read and I totally could "see" Partholon thanks to great description and attention to detail. I wouldn't mind taking a short trip to Partholon as a goddess! :-) Then I would happily return to the "real" world, where there is electricity!
