No Better Name  by Cairistiona 14 Review(s)

Brilliant. Love the bit about the books... wonder how the pedlar came by them? :)

Author Reply: Thanks, Elentarri! I suppose that peddler was like most, digging everywhere for something that he might be able to sell, but unlike most, brave enough to go north of Fornost where normally only the Rangers go, looking for abandoned goods!

"The man actually smiled back, and like Strider, it did changed him completely, though hed never look warm and cozy. If Strider were an eagle, this one was a hawk and no mistake."

I can completely see why you chose this as the chapter name. These sentences are immensely satisfying!

Indeed this whole chapter was lovely. Flora is a delight, and I love how Bowen cuts right to the heart of things, simply, elegantly, without pretense.

Just lovely, looking forward to more!


Author Reply: Thank you, Marethiel! I love that you described Bowen as "without pretense" because that's exactly how I see him. He's very down to earth and pretty much calls 'em as he sees 'em, without too much in the way of tact (to his own chagrin at times!) or artifice. And your copy/pasting showed me a typo--"did changed". Good grief. Yup, I are a right-ur. :~P Funny how you can look at a thing over and over for weeks and still not catch those little typos!

Glad you liked the chapter!

Love the title. It fits so very well. Bowen and his wife are developing into very real people. Thank you for a good story.

Author Reply: Thank you, UTfrog! I'm glad you like the metaphor for Halbarad. I've always pictured him with the sort of fierce visage of a hawk. Birds of prey seem to suit Rangers! And glad you're feeling like Bowen & Flora are becoming more real... that's always my aim!

Such a dear final line to this chapter! I hope the Rangers are able to tell these good folks many tales, and maybe even bring them a few more books over the years.

Author Reply: Thank you, shirebound! I was thinking myself what a nice gift books would make for Bowen. He'd be tickled to death, getting more of those books with the fancy-like leather covers. :)
