An early book I think. I love the Harpist in the Wind trilogy and you can see elements of the writing and story here that are building up to that. A parable of power corrupting but followed by redemption. Absolute corruption is avoided by the vulnerability of being human - and the natural morality of the inhuman.... Doesn't really fit the cosmos I live in but neither do magical dragons. Sometimes I want to escape the hard edges of the real world and this is a good mix of thoughtfulness and escape. Just a touch repetitive and predictable but a lovely read. Now I'm trying to find a more recent book of hers - but can't find any in the library. They don't seem to be making it over to the UK.... plus another half star. ( )

The style of the writing is beautiful, but it took me a bit to get into it, as I wasn’t used to the detached tone and pace. There’s a strong central love story and I did end up really enjoying it. I’ll have to look up some of her older books. ( )

I may be an odd reader for this book, but it captured my imagination best in the first half of the book and less so in the second.

That being said, I thought it was a well-written, sometimes mildly poetical romance with all the old, familiar fantasy tropes. Mythical creatures are really mostly a side-issue. It's really about hearts. Big surprise, right? It is a romance. :)

All said, I enjoyed it well as a mild entertainment. Maybe my jaded reading eyes have just seen too much like this to get overawed. But prop where prop is due: the fantasy realm by the mid seventies was mostly going the strange route and hadn't been revamped to the kind that feels more like THIS.

We've seen a lot of this since then, however. Enjoyable, regardless.

There are nearly 50 reviews of this story (on LT), and I probably don't have much extra to add. I'm confounded by the thought I had originally read this when my younger daughter was accumulating YA novels. But the story was so completely unfamiliar that I'm now doubtful I ever read it before.

Anyway, it was a nice segue back into the comfortable style of 1970's and 80's fantasies. I like the way mood is developed as much as action in this narrative style. I find thoughtful concepts develop in my own mind about implications for living/not living alone, for the greater harm/benefits of hate and revenge and letting go. McKillip may not have intended this novel to become an avenue of self-exploration but that is what developed for me.

As I say, it was an imaginative story and I would have loved to read more about the 'wizardlings' and hoped for additional interactions with the wondrous beasts. Parts of Forgotten Beasts felt rushed and in places, I would have liked more "story" around the details. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It has a magical, almost dream-like quality to the prose. It feels like reading a fairy tale. I loved the beasts, and the romance was sweet and compelling. I would recommend it to people looking for a great fantasy book. ( )
