Default Bitterbynde Trilogy

The ill-made mute
Lady of Sorrows
The battle of evernight

what did you think of these (if you've read them)? I liked them, especially her descriptive language which painted fantastic images, although i can understand that her heavy use of a theasaurus can irritate some, i didn't mind. The only thing i think that annoys me somewhat is the incredibly long 'blurb' on the back. I mean if you accidently pick up the 2nd or 3rd it tells you a lot of the story (although this can be said the same of most books)
What i love about it is the heavy use of folk-lore which she mentions in her references at the end of each book, she weaves it all in well.

My opinion on them is "meh." I didn't really like them, but I have a friend that loved them.

I liked them. There's another trilogy, that she's written or in the process of writing - can't remember which as it's been awhile since I've looked at them.
