The Riddle-Master Trilogy: Raederle

Patricia McKillip's Riddle-Master Trilogy is my favorite fantasy trilogy. Don't get me wrong: I love The Lord of the Rings. But I found parts of the book to drag terribly. While the Riddle-Master Trilogy has a few confusing, hard-to-read sections, it never got as dull as, say, The Road to Isengard (Nothing happens in that chapter!). And on an emotional level, the McKillip's trilogy spoke to me completely, in a very personal way.

So I will write meta on this trilogy. I I know it is unlikely that anyone will read it or understand it. But this is a public livejournal - who knows who could stumble upon it.

I want to write about Raederle.
