Paperbackpages. I’ve often struggled trying to describe these books to people.

Spring is arriving to the highlands, where Obernewtyn – the big sprawling mansion and farm that is home to a large group of Talented and unTalented Misfits and animals – lies protected by the mountains and a snowed-in pass, but the events of the previous year are still fresh in everyone’s minds.


The first part of the book just followed Elspeth around in her daily nothings with a few dreams related to the plot thrown in. There were times when I considered giving up on it but then something really interesting would happen and honestly there is some really fascinating information coming to light in this one.

In particular I loved Miryum and Straaka’s interactions in this book – though I really wish I’d been able to see more of their actual interactions which lead to her final action in his regard being vague to avoid spoilers sorry ;p. While not physically harmed, he is heavily drugged and suffering from delirium and convulsions.

Detailed Review Summary of The Keeping Place by Isobelle Carmody

Who could have guessed!!! From the Paperback edition. We don’t need to know the individual names of each and every Farseeker poace, nor hear each of their life stories and love interests.

Dec 09, Pages Young Adult Buy. This fourth book in the series is still as good as the fhe books, and I would recommend to everyone to read these books.

The Keeping Place

But my dreams can’t be real! Isobelle Carmody not only transports readers entirely into the realms which isoeblle portrays but also enables them to share the deep emotions of the characters whom she portrays, which is one of the central reasons I have fallen for the Obernewtyn Chronicals. I fact I have all the paper books here beside the last one. Jul 30, Neill Smith rated it it was amazing.

Nov 03, Dr. Second Edition Penguin Cover. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I can’t believe I couldn’t remember a single thing that happened in this massive, eventful volume, from the last – first? With the rebellion, adventures on the dream trails, and underwater, and the final adventure with the dragon this book is action packed and emotive.


The back calls the series “breathtakingly elaborate,” and it is that. Isobelle Carmody began the first novel of her highly acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles while she was still in high school.

Mistakes abound in this version of the book. Please try again later. Or do I cut my losses now? We are experiencing technical difficulties. It is a sad warning that our prejudices are not wiped out, even when most of the world is destroyed and tainted by our ambition. Apr 03, Gwendolyn rated it it was amazing. Would have been easier to read than listen to — bit long-winded in places, there were passages I would have liked to skim-read!

Jul 12, Lara rated it liked it. The Misfits at Obernewtyn are all experiencing dreams and nightmares in which they are terrorized by a dragon, Dragon’s form on the Dreamtrails. There’s SO MUCH going on, and while you can break it down to just Elspeths ‘main quest’ as such, in doing so you miss the opportunity to express just how wonderful these characters are, and just how beautiful, and sorrowful, and compassionate this story really is.

But good, because re-reading it now it was almost like reading it for the first time I say “almost” because, as things happened, I remembered them – but I still couldn’t recall what would happen nextso it was full of surprises for me!

Keeoing are no discussion topics on this book yet. The series has established her at the forefront of fantasy writing in Australia.

Certainly a lot happened in this instalment! When one is hidden in the past, Elspeth must travel the Dreamtrails, stalked by a terrifying beast, with Maruman, her cat, as guide and protector.
