5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Queen
By Debra on November 12, 2018
This novel has become one of my favorite Arthurian works and one of my favorite books just in general. It's right up there with Lord of the Rings and Outlander. It has romance in it but that is not its main focal point. It's more about Langoreth's journey as a woman, the choices we make, fate/destiny, love in the form of oaths and bonds we make with each other, and the changing times of Scotland in a period that lies at the heart of Scottish folklore and legends.

It is lyrically written. Signe Pike has a gorgeous writing style that would marvel many best selling authors today. She is good at describing emotions and movement within her story without being very cut dry about it. She does amazingly well with the idea of showing versus telling in her writing.

While this is a fantasy set novel, it has just the beginnings of magic in it. I have a feeling that the magical elements that are in this first work of the trilogy will expand further as the story delves deeper in future books. If you're looking for books that deal with a woman's journey, fate, the choices we make, seers, healers, battle, love, death, magic, and the chosen one then this book is for you.

I also want to point out a few things that I think are noteworthy. While this book does contain fantasy it is very much rooted in historical fiction. I just want to thank Signe for writing this story. I've read quite a few historical fiction works and I've always had problems with them especially when dealing with it being told by the female perspective. I think many writers get lost in the facts that they lose the women they are trying to bring to life as they become too consumed with the verity of the story that the main protagonist becomes nothing but an empty shell. This is not the case with Langoreth. Signe has once again like the river goddess called her name and has awoken her from the depths of her waters.

Thank you for not being one of the many writers who refuse to write on women during this time period giving the excuse that no woman was worth writing about because she was not off having adventures as the men did, that is poppycock. Women deserve to have their stories told as much as the heroic men do because they were heroines in their own right.
