  1. This is my favorite Jane Lindskold novel In it she depicts a world of magical extremely long lived beings who have greatly influenced earth s history Not all of these beings are human, but they are all interconnected to some level Changer is the oldest such creature, having been born before creatures first left the oceans to walk upon the land He s an extraordinary shapeshifter, as his name implies.It is hard to speak too highly of this book Myths and Legends walk the pages in very credible mode [...]


  2. This novel accomplishes in plot what American Gods accomplished in spirit but missed the mark on in terms of action the events of Changer and its sequel , the adventure itself and the fascinating cast keep me re reading this book each year I find Lindskold to be a little lacking in terms of a strongly present voice which, to continue the comparison, Gaiman has in spades but she knows where she s going, and she s got great people along for the ride I can t get over her feeling for the paradigmati [...]


  3. There was a foreword from the author, she wrote this book in the late 90 s So it s early urban fantasy and yet I found it unique regardless that I ve read lots of urban fantasy in the past 7 years I also found this book deceptively good It s an incredibly smooth read, rich in characterization and effortless to read I do think it got a smidge weaker toward the end but it in no way diminished the total impact Wonderful reading experience.


  4. I just can t handle the long winded style of writing It s driving me nuts It s taking me so long to read a page because I keep editing it The idea sounds intriguing, but the writing style just can t keep my interest Not a good book for those who are sensitive to long winded writers or books in need of an edit.



  5. Enjoyable premise, but seemed to drag toward the end I liked the premise, which was interesting if perhaps a bit pat, but I found myself drifting away from the story toward the end The story began with a brooding protagonist who has been wronged and then lost its focus and wound down into an exchange of windy hypotheticals and finally a somewhat unsatisfying conclusion All in all, though, I thought the characters were interesting and could make for a wealth of enjoyable stories.


  6. I read this on the recommendation of Charles de Lint, a favorite author I didn t enjoy every page but overall a fun book blending today with far far yesterday Changer is an awe inspiring character The gods of yesteryear are as powerful and all over the place as one expects them to be I am was especially happy to be in New Mexico, one of my heart homes.


  7. This book started with a really good and interesting idea The characters from myths and legends are real, and some of them still live among us I m sorry a story with so much potential didn t occur to a better writer Jane Lindskold does a lot of things right, but she also does a lot of things wrong To me, the worst fault was that she is awfully long winded Sentences like The King comes down to the kitchen, dressed casually in khaki trousers and a cotton button down shirt, and finds Eddie seated a [...]


  8. I m going to sadly call this one a DNF I m unhappy to do this as I remember loving this when it originally came out and I was so delighted to find it and its sequel in ebook form.But, to be honest, I m finding myself kind of bored I like it when I read some, but once I put it down I find I have no urge to pick it up again I think it s largely a case of it s not you, it s me as I m struggling reading anything right now damn ME CFS and I m just not coping with the present tense.It s a kindle ebook [...]


  9. I really enjoyed this book, it was fun and well written It s a neat idea that there are immortals among us and everything mythological is real, but I couldn t help thinking that as a plot device it was a cheap ploy Really you could put any cool character from any history in your book easily That s not a bad thing, it just seemed to cool a device to be so easily achieved with an explanation of immortals I would like to know about the Changer and the Sea King and their early life in primordial oo [...]


  10. I love Jane M Lindskold, and Arthurian tales, and fantasy, but can tell that I am not in the right frame of mind to read this one now, nor will I be able to get through it in a timely fashion Someday, when the time is right, a copy of the book will fall in my path and I shall eagerly snatch it up and read it Until then, I bid farewell to this copy, and say thank you to midwinter for including me on the ring I look forward to hearing when others read the book.


  11. Very interesting read Present tense narration is difficult for me to follow, but that s a personal preference Jane Linskold gathered her impressive knowledge of world mythology and overlaps it in her story, creating mythical archetypes and setting them in the recent past the present when the book was written I ll add the sequel, Changer s Daughter, also titled Legends Walking, to my reading list.


  12. I got this book at a book exchange and I thought it was an interesting idea This book was rather confusing in the beginning with trying to keep all of the characters what characters they had been in the past The idea of the book is a good one, but the execution was a little off for me I felt like the story dragged on for a while and then it wrapped up very quickly in the end While it was a good read, I don t know if I would recommend the book.


  13. This book is about immortals who walk among us Wait don t run yet It s nothing like books of this type that you ve read The story and characters are very original They have motivations, relationships, rivalries, etc that are not mere rehashes from characters in other books The story is living proof that it has not, in fact all been done before Highly recommended.


  14. Love, love, love this book Many years later Jane Lindskold s writing is still so vivid there are scenes I feel as if I read yesterday I can still hear the sounds of the characters, and picture scenes from the book Fantastic writer


  15. A very nice and interesting book about what if King Arthur s court were a bunch of immortals concealing their living selves as normal people in the present and having to deal with another immortal that is trying to discover the reason behind the deaths of his family Very good book.


  16. I like the premise of this book, the legendary heros still walking among us Haven t been compelled to read the sequal.



  17. Consistently engaging story of immortals on earth Great plotting, well maintained suspense, engaging characters What can you ask for




  18. This is one of my favorite modern fantasy or urban fantasy novels The strong characters resonate both as real people and as the mythic archetypes they carry.


  19. This is one of those books that I will reread every few years I love it because it is one story but there are multiple parts to it.


  20. Surprised at how well I liked this book Compared to American Gods it is a simple story but I liked it better.


  21. think Gaiman s American Gods fun look at mythincal figures fighting to survive in an environmentally unstable and technologically advanced present



  22. I love these 2 books wish they d re issue them in hardback with pretty covers Julie Bell, anyone latest re read 6 7 11
