I haven't read anything in that series other than Tam Lin myself, but I did
enjoy, mostly as a lit. junkie (English major)...three plays referred to in
the book are now the focus of my senior thesis...but I also have a Celtic
fantasy focus...I have read Sheri S. Tepper's Beauty (sleeping beauty), which
does touch on several fairy tales, including Tam Lin...but the Tepper novel is
far more political and not even half as sit-by-the-window-and-read comfy as
McKinley's works...obviously...

Briar Rose was wonderful. It is an adaptation that takes place during the
holocaust. But I did not like Tam Lin. It was too long for the story line so
it dragged a lot.
