    1 thought on “The Walls of Westernfort

    1. This is quite possibly the best book by Jane Fletcher I've read so far.Or rather, is Fletcher's most character-driven book. Not that the storyline is not interesting: we continue to immerse ourselves into the planet's complex society, but nothing much -really- happens in this regard. Sixteen years after the events in The Temple at Landfall, the rebels are already properly installed in Westernfort and growing larger by the day. So aiming to destroy them once and for all, Landfall sends a Guard, N [...]

    2. This is quite possibly the best book I ever read.Guardswoman Natasha Ionadis has her life figured out: a career devoted to the Goddess. Then she gets selected for an undercover mission to assassinate the three pillars of the heretics, Gina, Kim and most important of all Lynn. She embarks on a journey without the possibilty of return, but not quite in the way she has planned.Sounds like a fairly standard plot for an adventure story, but it's the emotional journey that sets this book apart. I thin [...]

    3. This was an interesting one to read. We move from following the more independently minded characters, to heretics to this book here – which follows the ‘faithful’. Specifically Natasha Ionadis. Natasha is a Guard – one of those people shown in earlier books as being a member of the ‘elite’ military force filled with peacocks. People much more interested in appearances than in skill and the like. Specifically, though, they, the Guards, are those who ‘guard’ the Sisterhood. And Nat [...]

    4. This really is such a great series, and this book held up with the rest. Parts of it were tough being in the head space of Jess. It almost made you squirm while reading it. But too me that's the sign of great writing, that this book makes you feel. I only have one book left to read, which is Rogues. I'm reading in chronological order so Rogues is the last for me. I would recommend to all new readers to read in chrono order, not written order. The story flows much better this way. I'm actually sa [...]

    5. This was a fantastic story. The author artfully brings in the theme of religion; blindly following vs questioning. I really enjoyed the book from beginning to end and I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. Excellent writing from Jane Fletcher. Definite must read.

    6. Oh man this series keep getting better than better!This one was light on the world building and plot that got me hooked in the first book, but it had what I'll always treasure most in novels: great characters!!! Hoooooly crap I love Natasha. My sweet butch daughter. Gosh she was so well-written, from her initial, unshakeable faith in the Goddess and the wisdom of her superiors, all the way through the infiltration, falling in love, and coming to question everything she knew. What I love best is [...]

    7. This one is really interesting one in this series, this start after third one the story is about faithful Gard Natasha lonadis she's on missions to kill Lynn (lovely imprinter) and Kim and the heretic Ginais goes slowly and it mainly around Natasha and her believe and in this one we come to know Danielle knew character easy for us reader to love in the end this book work for me

    8. Another Celaeno book! Although it has some basic world-building problems, I love this series anyway and am glad there are still a couple books in it that I haven't read. I started reading this shortly after finishing The Temple at Landfall. Although The Walls of Westernfort references many events that occurred in that book, it takes place 16 years later.I enjoyed getting to see how several characters from The Temple at Landfall were doing. Chip, Kim, and Lynn all made appearances, as did several [...]

    9. Second book I read in the Celaeno series and I enjoyed this one as well.It delves further into the planet's society, again stressing the conflict between the Sisters/Guards and those who oppose them.This story takes place sixteen years after Temple at Landfall, and follows up on the deserted Rangers and heretics and how they fare in their newly built city. Myths formed around their desertion and the new city in Landfall, and the Sisters try to keep it quiet and at the same time have more Intelli [...]

    10. + The story was engaging, with lots of suspense, action, and romance.+ Interesting new characters, and some returning characters.+ New locations and more exploration of previous places.+ Good amount of dialogue.+ Long pages, but not hard to read.- Lack some character description.Overall: Fans of previous Celaeno books will enjoy this book just as much as the previous one. Fans will also enjoy the new characters and it takes place in a single area most of the book, so they won't get lost so easil [...]

    11. The second book in the series is definitely a lot more consistent than the first one. This time around, the author takes her time to develop the character relations further, making it much more believable. I enjoyed the undercover story very much and the plot was engaging. This is a vast improvement from the first book and an enjoyable read.Sadly, I'm still torn about the worldbuilding of this book. The whole scifi twist remains a forced element in the book. It's less present as in the first one [...]

    12. This is probably the best of all Fletcher's books that I've read. It is a sequel to the first Celaeno novel and focus on a member of the religious Guard given the mission of infiltrating the heretic settlement of the first book. Fletcher's characterization and plotting are spot on, and while having an inevitable and predictable conclusion the book still manages to feel right a true, making the whole thing more about the journey than the destination.

    13. my favorite of the Celaeno series. I think i read this series out of order and i read this book first and was hooked i think it was the first time i read a all woman's world series that seems possible to me i loved this book and the series and especially the origin story in the end on how they all began

    14. Started reading this book with a sceptic view even though I love this series. I thought because the main character was a guard which from reading the other books made me think of them as cruel and stupid. However I fell in love with this character as she goes through her journey (more emotional then physical) and found I had a lot in common with her. My favorite of the series.

    15. An enjoyable read, although I had to read a quarter of the book before the main character became even remotely interesting.

    16. Es el segundo de la saga de Celeano. Sigue en la línea del primero, sin sorpresas. El romance bastante previsible, pero rodeado del universo propio de la autora, con reflexiones interesantes.
