Hello everyone, I wanted to share this awesome series by Edith Pattou. I read it as a teenager, passed it on to my two siblings and now we are all waiting for the third book still. 

Her book East is equally amazing in a different way. But if anyone of you are familiar with Songs of Eierren, could you guys recommend similar works?

 

For those of you not familiarized with this series, you will recognize some names and ideas from Celtic folklore, it seems to be based on an ancient version of ireland if you look at the map. There is magic, elves, normal humans, evil humans, a real bad queen, murder by poisen. The first book is based on a boy's POV and his quest to recover someone he loves while multi-tasking (also searching for someone he doesn't yet know). The second book is a girl's POV. Breo-Saight-she is an awesome but-kicking girl with her bow and a golden arrow, seeking to avenge someone she loves. There is a lot of mystery and many diverse characters...er, creatures.

 

If anyone has similar recommendations I would appreciate it!

Thanks =)
