Review quote Praise for previous novels: But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish.

I really like Fidelma and I don't generally enjoy short stories. I usually suck it up when it is a collection for a series I read as little background pieces sometimes show up in these cases. I think that is true in the collection here, but the chronology was confusing. It seemed Hemlock at Vespers, the story not the book, was in the middle but she remains of Kildare not Cashel throughout.
Also confused as the beginning tales don't seem to have her a princess. I get Colgu isn't King yet but she was still her father's daughter and inherited rank which seems unacknowledged. The mysteries themselves were short of course but showed off a little of her talents just less roadblocks than usual.

View all 3 comments. Sep 13, Daniel rated it it was amazing. I loved this book! In the spirit of Cadfael, Fidelma is a detective in early Ireland who uses simple reasoning to solve mysteries. All of this is done without so much as a magnifying glass or any technology whatsoever. Sherlock Holmes would be proud! These short stories make for a good introduction to Fidelma, a high-ranking religieuse in 7th century Ireland who through study attains a rank of dalaigh, which is a role in the courts almost second to kings. Fidelma solves criminal mysteries and ma I loved this book!

It's wonderfully written, by a Celtic scholar, so the historical background is accurate. You don't need to be a historian to enjoy the stories though, they're intriguing and well written. This collectio I loved the Sister Fidelma Mysteries when I read them a few years ago and when I went back home for Christmas I found this collection of short stories and re-read it. This collection is a nice introduction to Fidelma, before starting on the full-length books which I'm going to do now ; Jan 20, Susan P rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just finished this book.
At first I wasn't sure that I'd like the style of writing, but the main charater, Sister Fidelma, was enough to keep me reading. What I found difficult about the book, were the celtic names and places. This was a hurdle for me, as I like to be able to pronounce what it is that I'm reading.
Once again the author was able to lure me in with imaginative and suductive mystery, for me to be able to over come this hurdle. I've researched the author and found that he's written Just finished this book. I've researched the author and found that he's written many such mysterys with Sister Fidelma as the main character and I will continue reading his writing! Oct 16, Denise rated it liked it Shelves: Sister Fidelma short stories. Her partner, Brother Eadulf, is not in these stories. And then Sister Fidelma's condescending attitude got on my nerves.

It's not so bad in the full books because she interacts with more people. But in the collections of short stories she can get overpowering. I'm also reading the other short story collection Whispers of the Dead so I'll see Sister Fidelma short stories. I'm also reading the other short story collection Whispers of the Dead so I'll see if it gets any better.

Jul 02, Kristen rated it liked it Shelves: These stories are good for a brief read before bed so you don't become so involved you can't turn out the light and your a zombie the next day at work. Sadly the technical editing in this series leaves a lot to be desired and lack of spaces get worse on the e-book versions. This particular book has multiple issues. While I like the stories, I must saying it is off-putting, throwing a wrench in my suspension of disbelief, and then it takes me a minute to focus on the story.
Most common issue is t These stories are good for a brief read before bed so you don't become so involved you can't turn out the light and your a zombie the next day at work. Most common issue is the a correctly spelled word similar in appearance to the word that should be there. Mar 09, Deborah rated it it was ok. Encyclopedia Brown from grownups, with a bit of Celtic lore thrown in.
Short mysteries, always solved by the lovely young nun Fidelma. There's lots of repetitiveness here, as the character is introduced over and over But the stories themselves were interesting. Feb 24, Ana Elena Romero rated it it was ok. Apr 17, Ruthmarie rated it really liked it. Sister Fidelma, of those rebellious strands of red hair that must be tucked back under her veil, has once again waylaid me--and of course I didn't mind! Now, back to "serious" work at hand, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter.
