Walks In Stardust is the only book of Lynn Armistead McKee's that I have read. Overall it was an enchanting story of a woman finding herself and finding much more than that. The story rode quickly, jumping from one event to the next. However, at the end of the story I found myself with a little disappointment. Her characters were for the most part very well built, but with a few flaws. I loved reading the story and I imagine this will not be the only McKee's book that I read, but I had difficulties at being a part of her story. An Arthur's job is more than just writing a few words and making it sound good. It is so much deeper than that.

Stardust Summary Stardust. Tristran walks toward the gap in the wall with Yvaine.

Dunstan Thorn lives in the tiny town of Wall, and when he's eighteen, he crosses through the wall to attend the s Faerie Market. He's told he'll get his Heart's Desire, which in this case means shacking up with an exotic-looking slave woman. Nine months later, when he's already married a girl in Wall, a baby in a basket shows up at the gap in the wall. The baby is Tristran, Dunstan's son. Oops. He's all set to go through, but the two guys on guard duty, Wystan and Mr. Brown (his former employer) aren't having it and don't let him through. Apparently this kind of thing never, ever happens.

Walks in Stardust

By: Lynn Armistead McKee

Cimmera can remember nothing-only vague images of battle, feelings of desperate longing and heartbreaking loss. She is a woman without a memory, without a tribe-unsure of who her enemy may be.

But together with one heroic man, she is about to discover her true destiny. The mysterious knife she carries is the key to her identity-and to triumphant vision of survival and unbreakable spirit...

Walks In Stardust is the only book of Lynn Armistead McKee's that I have read. Overall it was an enchanting story of a woman finding herself and finding much more than that. The story rode quickly, jumping from one event to the next. Honestly I couldn't put it down because I was so curious of what would happen next. The Arthur kept us into the story and didn't dare lose our attention for a moment. The actually story line was very original and very well told. However, at the end of the story I found myself with a little disappointment. Her characters were for the most part very well built, but with a few flaws.

I loved reading the story and I imagine this will not be the only McKee's book that I read, but I had difficulties at being a part of her story. An Arthur's job is more than just writing a few words and making it sound good. It is so much deeper than that. Any good Arthur will put you in the story. The story is supposed to take you to places and times you've never been. A reader should be able to feel and see what the characters do. At times our Arthur did just that but at many spots she lacked that "magic". I also felt that she rushed the story. The conclusion was so quickly done that we missed the best part; the journey.

The story lacked emotions, details and emphasis. For example, when Cimmera is running from who or what is unknown it dawns on her that she doesn't remember anything, not even her name. She has no idea of where she is, why she is running, whose blood is drenched on her, or who she is for that matter. She should be petrified, and our Arthur told us that she was but while reading the story I didn't feel that. Before McKee even had the chance to really show us that fear of not knowing she jumped into the next event.

Cimmera built a shelter and went on with life. Our Arthur told us that it was tough being isolated and surviving with only a knife to start with but McKee never emphasized on how much it affected Cimmera or the hardships she encountered during her remoteness. I understand that was only part of the story but McKee made it a point to tell us that she was alone for some time trying to survive with almost nothing but she doesn't walk us through that event. She gave us a brief over view and then skipped the details, which didn't help the reader understand what Cimmera was really dealing with. McKee told us that it was not easy for her and as a result she tried to kill herself, but as a reader I never felt the pain and the fear that I should have felt.

Cimmera met the heroic Cherok and it was explained that she didn't know if she could trust him or not. She went to thinking that he was arrogant and didn't like him at all. A few times she had lusted for him when he snuck in a kiss or two and then one day she loved him. I completely missed the part where she fell in love with him and the falling is the best part. The Arthur wrote that Cimmera couldn't let herself fall for the enemy and with barely any resistance she gave in. I wanted secrets exchanged with just body language and without the meaningless words. I wanted to have to wait so long of wanting them to just be together that when the suspense is ended it makes it that much better.

There are so many more examples of what was missing from this wonderfully complex story. The ending for one I wasn't impressed with because the Thunderbolts were supposed to be merciless and fearless. They sought the star knife because it had power and the moment they got a small glimpse of the power they ran. This ferocious tribe knew of its power and that is why they wanted it. Why would this all time feared tribe fear exactly what they wanted? To put it bluntly, the battle was pathetic. The Arthur attempted to make Cimmera into a hero but it just seemed so easy and heroes aren't supposed to have it easy. If it was easy there would be more "hero's" than there are; that is the point.

Again, the entire story was rushed. The Arthur has a lot of potential and I know she could have done better but she needed emphasis, details and more emotion. If she learns to add that to her story she could be the next Jean M. Auel, Sue Harrison or William Sarabande.

I have enjoyed all of the books in the series that I have read by Lynn Armistead McKee. She makes the characters come to life. I would recommend this book and all the booka in the series to anyone who likes to read about the very early americans in Florida.

The only thing that Cimmera knows is that she is in danger, is carrying a beautiful knife and there is blood on her..but who's?
And who is she? What was she running from? Who can she trust?
This fourth book is a little different from the rest, a new character named Cimmera is the main character here, and it is a mystery/race of sorts. This series is so much better than "Shelters of Stone",(what isn't), engaging characters, good plot, no "too modern", unrealistic dialog, or chapters devoted to describing a bone cup. Had me guessing about Cimmeras' past,what happened that was so horrific that it brought on amnesia? Whose blood is it, did she kill someone? If she did, why? Will she remember who she is and who is after her in time? Well worth it, I would give it six stars, it is that good.

She read my mind when writing this book! This book is all that I ever could've expected from McKee and much, much more! I can't wait to read it again!
