Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh | : Books

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. Lucky for all of us, this is the beginning of what promises to be a classic series I admit I’m not a huge fantasy reader, but this book stole my heart and just might turn me into one. The romance has an air of inevitability about it, and I didn’t mind the instant attraction elements here, but some of the obstacles didn’t work for me.

Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller. I really wish I had loved this.

Lark is an admirable heroine – strongly written and quite round. But when her Sight warns her that monsters called Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec.

Children’s Book Review: Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh. Random, $ (p) ISBN

I thought the romance would be insta-love-y, at first, because Lark sees Gharain in a vision, before she meets him. Special talents that was given risinb her. If we let ourselves put aside the details and tell us a story that will take us away to a magical land, then we can read a story with the eyes of the innocent. I know it sounds doubtful, but there was no insta-love, in this book.


She lives a simple life, tending her garden and always staying close to home, until one day her Sight reveals that the monsters known as Troths will soon invade her village. A gift that has left her bound for things greater than she could ever have imagined. By clicking on “Submit” you agree that you have read and agree to the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

Aug 24, Erin Cashman rated it it was amazing Shelves: Girl starts off incredibly shy and a little timid, and due to how her powers affect her around risinh people she tends to avoid large groups.

She is shy, timid, and not looking for an adventure. Troths are coming, vicious troll-like creatures, intent on destroying the defenseless village of Merith just as they did years before.

Lark became really boring after the opening and I really didn’t care for her or her cringe worthy romance which made me roll my eyes most of the time “Your touch,” I said very softly. What a treasure awaits you!

Lark Rising

Lark Rising has nothing of the sort. When she find alrk Riders of Tarnec, she realises that one of them, Gharain, is the man who she has foreseen that she will fall in love with but who will end up killing her.

Gharain, is nicely introduced along with some of the background characters like Wilh and Branht which are greatly entertaining.

I just wish I could have liked it more. Why you should pick this up 1. I hated ssandra put it down to do other things and always came back to it. But then she meets the Riders and Lover Boy and things go downhill very fast. Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. It is also the only concrete reason given for her “love” of him: I don’t know how else to lxrk it – poetic, maybe.
