It felt like there was too much and not enough going on at the same time.

Isobelle Carmody started writing this series when she was only fourteen and it just blows my mind away how creative it is. The 4th in the Obernewtyn chronicles, the Misfits now know that their path involves not fighting, but pacifism, and demonstrating to others that their mental powers are not to catmody feared.

The Keeping Place

Obernewtyn is a great series and I read it every couple of years. Maruman, the mad old cat who guards Elspeth’s dreams, protects her as best he can. It makes u feel all the feels: While she waits for Rushton, carmoy for the call of her destiny to destroy the Beforetimer, she runs the great hidden safehaven of the Misfits and waits for Dragon to wake from her slumber. Elspeth is determined, intelligent, spunky and interesting. The story took a weird turn, so it’s not my favorite.


Now, do I read the fifth in the series? The review of this Book prepared by Ris.

Jun 04, Lara rated it it was ok Shelves: I have given this book 5 stars because it deserves it I never much liked Matthew after Obernewtyn, especially for his cruelty to Dragon but in re-reading I find that his story interests me greatly and I really want to be reunited with him in the final novel, The Red Queen and see what lies in store for him and Dragon when they return her to the land of her people. Apr 29, Kerry rated it really liked it Shelves: Bolinda Audio; Unabridged edition March 15, Language: Wait, no, that’s not entirely true; I was also I devoured the third book in this series–it had me absolutely captivated.

It’s busy and richly detailed, fleshing out how the Misfits live at Obernewtyn and giving us some much-needed time with Elspeth away from dire predicaments.


We are experiencing technical difficulties. Jul 01, Maggie rated it it was amazing. In particular I loved Miryum and Straaka’s interactions in this book – though I really wish I’d been able to see more of their actual interactions which lead to her final action in his regard being vague to avoid spoilers sorry ;p. Seriously, no wonder she felt she had to include a three-place tiny font dictionary at the front of the novel, but surely the fact she felt she needed one should’ve been a warning light?

There were little pockets of good parts eg: I couldn’t remember what, until it happened, but I had that sick feeling of dread that he was going to do something really bad to the Misfits, first chance he got. Tides of the Dark Crystal 3. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
