The First Song of Eirren. The Girl in the Tower: A Novel Winternight Trilogy Book 2. The Bear and the Nightingale: A Novel Winternight Trilogy Book 1. Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal Grade Brie, the archer who accompanied Collun on his adventures in Hero’s Song Harcourt,returns to continue her story in this action-packed sequel.

Seeking revenge for her father’s death, the young woman sets out to find the men who killed him. Before she has traveled far, she discovers an important clue to her own pastAa fire arrow given to her mother as a wedding gift.

On her quest, Brie has numerous adventures and eventually kills two of her father’s murderers. After spending some time in a fishing village, an interlude that marks a shift from Brie’s personal conflict to a much more global one, she resumes her travels. She finally meets Balor, the third murderer, intent on becoming the most powerful force in the land, and after the compulsory high-fantasy battle, she alone defeats him. This long, somewhat episodic tale is occasionally awkward in style, and the major conflict is not always clearly articulated.

Many of the minor characters are richly drawn, but a full exploration of Brie’s character has been sacrificed to the fast-paced action. At the same time, Pattou’s energetic imagination has allowed her to create many memorable characters and scenes that are vivid and lively and will appeal to many fantasy readers. The sequel to Hero’s Song becomes the story of Breo-Saight Briethe master archer who joined Collun’s quest in the first book of the Songs of Eirren series.


At the deathbed of her beloved nursemaid, Brie learns of her birthright, a golden arrow given her mother by Brie’s mysterious great-grandmother. A stalwart hero, Brie seeks revenge on her father’s murderers, who may also be responsible for the nursemaid’s death. And with the magic fire arrow, which seems to have its own agenda, Brie travels through the wilderness heading to Dungal, where she thinks she’ll come across the murderers.

But when she meets and kills the killer, who had tortured her father, she feels, not the expected triumph, but, rather, remorse. She bides her time in a friendly land, where she heals and finds happiness, until she finds herself summoned in her dreams to a mysterious bell tower.

There she meets the evil one-eyed sorcerer, who’s been involved in her father’s murder and in assorted attempts on her life. With sympathetic characterizations both human and animalgruesome foes, and a sinister mastermind, as well as fast pacing, a well-realized landscape, violent clashes, and all the expected elements of good fantasy, Pattou offers a rousing story that is not only a strong sequel that begs yet another sequel but also a fine fantasy adventure that holds up on its own.

Showing of 19 reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.

One of my favorite fantasy series for young adults. Partly I like it because it has nothing to do with dystopian fiction, a genre I am getting quite tired of! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The novel became more and more engaging as the story progressed. The fire arrow motif was handled deftly.

Am hoping there will be a Third Song of Eirren. Edith Pattou is an exceptional writer. This is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to all readers looking for romance and adventure.

I got what i was looking for an the time i was expecting it. The book was as described. After destroying the Wurme in the previous book, Collun and Brie are pattu peacefully at his father’s old home.

Until, that is, Brie receives an alarming fortune from a wyll wise-womanand a summons from her aunt and uncle.

Her old nurse is dying, and leaves Brie a mysterious golden arrow that becomes fiery when she touches it, and gives her visions. It also brings back her strong desire for revenge against the Scathians who killed her father, including a one-eyed man. She sets off across the land of Dungal, and spends some time in a fishing village with a crazy wizard and a Ellyl waystation.

But when danger comes closer, Brie must leave peace behind, and finds out who killed her father — and about the impending invasion that threatens Dungal and Eirren. In many ways, this book improves on the previous one.

Pattou shows a greater sense of atmosphere, and is better able to sustain suspense and mystery. She also expands Brie from a stereotyped woman warrior into a more three-dimensional character, and is able to make the conflict seem more epic and realistic than ever before. Sago is an exceptionally-written character, a wiser-than-he-looks wizard who utters nonsense rhymes much of the time.

Fire Arrow

Collun displays more depth and recognizable emotion than the-gardener-who-wants-to-go-home, with revelations about his family that hint at a possible future instalment. Unfortunately, most of the cast of the previous book — including the charming Taliesin — is abandoned;; Silien and Collun are barely there, and Nessa and Taliesin are gone altogether, except for Collun briefly mentioning his sister. Ciaran the talking horse and Fara the Lassie-like Ellyl pet are more present than the characters that I was more interested in.


There is a silly coffee joke early in the book, that Pattou refuses to let drop; also, a reference to chocolate in a mythical early Ireland. We are treated to a retread of Collun and Brie’s bloodless romance, after Brie flirts aimlessly with a very boring fisherman, and Pattou introduces a long-lost-royalty cliche late in the book, that any adept fantasy fans will have spotted long before.

Brie has developed substantially from the previous book, in that Pattou effectively displays her conflicting feelings and her thoughts on revenge, whether it’s wrong or right. Collun is, oddly, frie intriguing when we see less of him; I would have preferred to see his fights with the Scathians instead of page after page of Brie in the fishing village.

Silien is good, for what little there is of him; we see him taking an active stance against the Scathians. Hanna, the weather-woman, is an effective and interesting character, while the cowardly, nervy Monodnock sucked all the magic and mystery out of the Ellyl. Despite this book’s flaws, it pagtou a good read for fans of Celtic-themed fantasy, and plucks out some intriguing plot threads that will undoubtedly make any future stories intriguing, especially if Ms.

Pattou brings back Talisen and dispenses with the silly coffee jokes. This is just as intoxicating as the first evith. Like it, it looks like an ordinary old fantasy book. You know, prince goes to rescue princess who’s been captured by evil dragon or ogre or some such.

But this book is totally different. It starts out with Brie you really should read the first ,Hero’s song, before hand reiceiving her birthright ,the Fire Arrow, from her dying nursemaid. She then travels to Dungal to avenge her father’s killers.

She acheives this, but partou not feel happy like she thought she would. She travels to Ardara,where something almost happens that makes you want to punch Brie. Lom is not the one. She belongs with Collun. I won’t say anything else, I might ruin it.

It introduces a bunch of new characters,and reveals something very surprising about Brie and her family. I recommend this book to anyone who likes magic, fantasy, action or just a great book to get caught up in. I LOVE this book. I agree with the others who have given reviews on this book, that you have to read the first, Hero’s Song, to really understand it.

I have been going from chat room to chat room, and club to club, searching for someone who has read Hero’s Song or Fire Arrow. They’re my favorite books, and I’ve never met one person who’s read them. I want to talk to someone and find out what they think the third book in the series will be about My name’s Blinkin, on AIM.

Maybe that was not to smart to give all that information out.
