        As far as writing is concerned, I call myself the poster child for persistence Songs of Power, the first novel I sold, was the 5th novel I d written When it sold I was working on novel 13 The next to sell, Navohar, was 12, and the next, A Matter of Profit, was 9 The Goblin Wood was 6, and the first Sorahb book, Flame later renamed Farsala Fall of a Kingdom , will be 15 You get the picture.My reviews Mea culpa I got onto years ago, and haven t been reviewing but I now mean to start I should add that as writer, I tend to read a bit critically Or at least, when I think a book is going off the rails I usually see technical, writer problems with it In short, any time a book stops working for me, that author becomes an honorary member of my writing critique group whether they want to or not So I apologize in advance for any technical critiques my fellow writers may recieve.Biography My personal life I was born in Denver in 1958 you can do the math I m single and live with my mother, brother and sister in law I used to be a part time reference librarian for a mid sized public library, but in the beginning of 05 I achieved a writer s dream and quit the day job Librarian turned writer is a very schizophrenic state when I try to urge people to buy my books, I have to beat down a lifetime of professional reflexes demanding that I tell them to check them out at the library instead.I enjoy board gaming and fantasy gaming, both table top and live But my favorite thing to do is the decadent version of camping my mom and I practice We have a pop up trailer with a fridge, a sink, a stove and if electrical hookups are available a space heater, heating pads and a toaster Our motto is No unnecessary work We don t cook, we don t wash dishes, we don tyou name it What we do is spend all day, every day, reading and hiking and reading some Camping is the only time I can get in enough reading Well, I take that back when it comes to reading, there s no such thing as enough.

    1. What a baffling, delightful book. WHAT IS PLOT? HOW TO SCHEME? WHAT IS HAPPENING EVER IDK BUT I"M A FAN.Goose Woman was a fantastic moment in our lives.


    2. I'm really sad to have to write this review. I ADORED Hilari Bell's Goblin Wood series. As in it was one of the best fantasy series I've ever read. So, no matter what I have to say about this book, don't write off this author--go read the Goblin Wood series!But thisJase was a hormone-driven, car-obsessed flat character. The book slogged, with so much explaining about things that could have been summed up really quickly and made room for actual plot. I got SO tired of Jase talking about his car-- [...]



    3. ~ Powell's ~ Jan's PaperbacksFirstly, I think I need to present a little background on my experience. I typically like to re-read series before tackling the latest release—it serves as a refresher and helps me zone-in before I start reading the new one. So before picking up Traitor's Son, I revisited and reconnected with Kelsa and Raven in Trickster's Girl. Unfortunately, I think that was a mistake.In Traitor's Son, Kelsa is no longer the focus; now it's all Jase. And I didn't really connect w [...]


    4. Review of an advance copy:This is the second half of a duet, but those who pick up Traitor's Son without reading Trickster's Girl won't be confused. They'll definitely want to go back and find out what happened in the prior book, but my guess is that many won't want to put Jase's story down long enough to get the background. Best case scenario: read them in order; second best: finish Jase's story, then read Kelsa's - at which point you may want to read Jase's again. :)At the end of the first boo [...]


    5. In Trickster's Girl one of my main problems with the book was Raven and Kesla. Looking back I would almost venture to say that Kesla was using the 'save the world' hoopla to escape the reality of her father's death and possibly also with a minor death wish of her own. Jason--or Jase as he mostly goes by--is a different story altogether.Disaffected, indifferent and mostly confused about his place in the world I resonated moreso with Jase then I ever did with Kesla. His awkward attempts to flirt w [...]


    6. The second book in the Raven Duet brings a bit more than the first. There are still many questions that the reader desperately wants answered, only to be disappointed. I think that's the point of this duo. In the first, Kelsa blindly follows Raven on this dangerous journey to heal the ley line going from Utah up into Alaska. She gets as far as the Canadian/Alaska border before she hands off the pouch to Jase, a native boy she thinks might get the job done.The first hundred pages or so of TRAITOR [...]


    7. This one wasn't quite as good as the first. I do know why. Kelsa was a much more sympathetic protagonist, and while it did take her a while to accept what was going on, it did not take her half the book. As well as that, her grief didn't take up as much space as Jase talking about his car did in this book, which is a little bit funny, if you think about it, but still. This boy and his car. As well as that, I'm not a huge fan of the choice to make (view spoiler)[ Raven turn into a girl to make Ja [...]


    8. TRAITOR'S SON is more satisfying than its predecessor TRICKSTER'S GIRL. A great deal of that has to do with the ending. TRICKSTER'S GIRL ended abruptly in order to set up the change of narrator in TRAITOR'S SON. But the second book is the end of the duology so both the character arc and the quest arc come to a close. (Sadly, we learn nothing about Kelsa aside from the fact that she gets arrested.)One problem I had with the first book is directly addressed. I thought it was strange that Kelsa's a [...]


    9. When the girl at the Canadian border tosses Jase the medicine pouch he suspects she is giving him drugs, but little does Jase know that the little pouch he caught while trying to evade gunfire at the border would change is life forever.When I read Trickster’s Girl last year I really enjoyed the story, but had my doubts when I heard the sequel would feature a new main character. Kelsa was a fun character, I liked her and had a hard time imagining the story without her. Jase surprised me though. [...]


    10. In this second, and apparently final, book of the Raven Duet the medicine bag and the task of healing the damaged ley line has been passed to Jason Mintok. Jase is much more interested in his Tesla - the vintage car that is his pride and joy - than he is in nature of any kind. When Raven comes to him in the guise of a hot teenage girl, he is very disbelieving. Part of his disbelief comes from a court case that has separated him from his Native roots and caused a major rift between his lawyer fat [...]


    11. Set in the near future, this second book in The Raven Duet (sci-fi/fantasy) has Kelsa handing off a medicine bag of life-saving dust to Jason. His mission, for which he was chosen unbeknownst to him, involves his using the dust to heal the magical leys that can protect earth from the deadly pollutants and disastrous course that mankind has spread and set into motion. Jason is 3/16 Alaskan native, but has been cut off from all communication from his traditionalist grandfather and grandmother. Whe [...]


    12. It is interesting where the title of this book comes from. You are half way through the book before you really get why it is the perfect title and why it is so perfect for it.Jase seems to walk that line between a people who are loosing their culture and struggling to keep it. It doesn't help that his dad seems to be at the head of the line to walk away from that culture which has a big effect on Jase, leaving both sides to hate him and what he seems to stand for.With this struggle, Raven shocks [...]


    13. This story is less of a roadtrip book than Kelsa's story was. It was glossed over far more. This made it pleasant to read, though I didn't really have problems with Kelsa's story either. But Jase is, to me, a far less likable character than Kelsa was. And Raven was a little too changed for me to like. Somehow, it felt like his attitude completely changed. Less joking around, less tricks, and far more focussed on 'let's manipulate/flirt with Jase, because I'm now a girl, therefore I don't need my [...]


    14. Excellent. Even though this story is a duet, I really wanted it to continue. Maybe? The energy is flowing through the leys again, but the world is not completely healed yet. I could relate to Jas better than I could Kelsa. Maybe it's a gender thing. This second part reminded me of the Sax Roehmer's Fu Manchu series and the Tony Hillerman novels I love. Otter woman is back, as mean as ever and she brings some muscle with her this time. Supernatural football players? Cool. Bear gets involved and t [...]


    15. I'm still not sure how I feel about switching main characters, but Traitor's Son works for me. The world that Jase inhabits is interesting and had more conflict then Kelsa's did. His identity as a native american versus a white made me really think about what it means to be caught between cultures. I loved how he related to the magic used against him, something Kelsa really couldn't do. I feel like things turned out well and I'm satisfied. (view spoiler)[ The one thing that bugged me was the rom [...]


    16. This book was from a very different perspective than the first one. Jason is not a nature-y person like Kelsa. He loves his car. Raven, in the form of a girl now, takes several days to try to convince him, finally having to take some rubber from his tires, metal shavings from the inner part of his car, and power from his car battery and add it to the ley healing dust. Jason ends up healing the ley due to the fact that his car won't run if he doesn't heal it. He faces many obstacles along the way [...]


    17. I can't imagine why these two books hadn't made it into my consciousness before this. I loved these two books, and read both this weekend. Beautiful mix of sic fi, Native American mythology, ecology issues and optimism. The world needs some more of that, definitely. The characters are very relatable, the scenery astonishing, and the storyline exciting. As usual, very well written. I love Hilari Bell.


    18. Jason is severed from his roots by a feud between his father and his grandfather. But Raven, the trickster, this time appearing as a beautiful teenage girl, has no choice but to convince him to continue Kelsa's quest to restore the Ley lines, and give Earth the chance to be reborn.I was not as fond of either of these books as I am of ALL Hilari Bell's other books, but, the character's were interesting, and there was enough action, that they were both pretty good reads.


    19. This book was rather good, even if it did totally weird me out that Raven was a girl in this book (I mean, it made sense, but it was *really* hard to wrap my mind around every time I read "she"). Anyway, at first I was disappointed that Kelsa wasn't in this book at all, but then it turned out that the new character, Jase, was pretty interesting too after a while, so I guess I'm fine with it. Interesting concept for a series, I enjoyed it.


    20. At the end of the first book, when Kelsa throws the medicine bag across the Alaska-Canada border and into the hands of a strange boy, it turns out that her quest also becomes his. Now, Jason is the one who must heal the land, and with his native roots, he seems to be the perfect choice.Or is he? Full review: writingya/2012/12


    21. A good conclusion to the duet. Jason is chosen by Kesla to continue Raven's quest to heal the lays. But getting his cooperation is a bit tricky. And his own family baggage adds all kinds of complications.


    22. 3.5 - I read it for an HB review, but I feel like I might've gotten around to this one on my own, and i DO plan to go read the preceding book this summer. An interesting mix of slightly futuristic life, Alaskan Native mythos, and the TRICKSTER (my weakness).


    23. As a second in a pair of books it was done well, having the mix of a futuristic world mixed with Native beliefs. Yes read it after the first one 'Trickster's Girl' and keep an open and wondering mind. Things aren't always as they may seem. :)


    24. Interesting. I like the juxtaposition of both a very magical, traditional tribe-based society and a very technologically advanced world. The environmental message was important, but not too heavy handed.


    25. Don't know why, but I could never get into this series. I'm usually a huge fan of Hilari Bell's work, and recommend it all the time @ my library, but this one seemed a bit like fantasy by the numbers.


    26. This is a neat series because the two books are so different but both very good. I like to read mythology-meets-reality books, and these were very interesting because they are Native American mythology instead of Western mythology, and, I think, quite well done.


    27. Ultimately much more satisfying than Trickster's Girl, Traitor's Son features Jase, a refreshingly and fantastically relatable protagonist and an exciting, well-paced story.**Traitor's Son, rated 14+, rated 4/5 stars.
