Cornwall, 1285 CE Now nearly seventeen, Megge and Brighida must endure another brutal loss. And as they perform the rites of transition that precede a burial, Megge accepts a daunting new charge that carries consequences not even her cousin the seer can predict. It brings visions. Dreams. And voices that come to her as she goes about her work. A silken voice beckons her back Cornwall, 1285 CE Now nearly seventeen, Megge and Brighida must endure another brutal loss. And as they perform the rites of transition that precede a burial, Megge accepts a daunting new charge that carries consequences not even her cousin the seer can predict. It brings visions. Dreams. And voices that come to her as she goes about her work. A silken voice beckons her back to the cliffs of Kernow, which she has seen only in dreams. A commanding voice orders her back. And the menacing voice she’s heard since she was a girl is now ever at her ear, bringing a haunting new meaning to her grandmother’s words, “You’re never alone.” But only when the tales of an old woman, a stranger to Bury Down, echo those voices and conjure those cliffs does Megge embark on a journey that leads to a secluded cove they call The Sorrows and a destiny none of the women of Bury Down could have foreseen.

    I have read this sequel as an audiobook too and I enjoyed it much more than the first book. For a change, I did not find it that difficult to keep up with the story track or the characters and again I will say the narrator Jan Cramer has done a wonderful job with the narration--she has a very clear, melodious and soothing voice. My thanks to NetGalley, the publisher Rowan Moon LLC/IBPA Members' Audiobooks and the author Rebecca Kightlinger for the audio ARC of the book.

    I enjoyed this sequel to "Megge of Bury Down." Megge is grown and she and her cousin Birgitta must learn to shoulder the responsibilities of their mothers, now passed. Since Megge so fervently refused to take on her magical responsibilities as healer prior to her mother's death, she knows nearly nothing about healing and has left her community in the lurch without a healer nearby.

Megge is grown and she and her cousin Birgitta must learn to shoulder the responsibilities of their mothers, now passed. Since Megge so fervently refused to take on her magical responsibilities as healer prior to her mother's death, she knows nearly nothing about healing and has left her community in the lurch without a healer nearby. This book is more full of her adjustments to this reality, and finally realizing she is behind and has a dire need to catch up and become what she is destined to be - healer and witch. Megge has become a strong woman, now she simply needs to own her power to fully become her destiny. This sequel carried less magic than the first book, which I did find I missed, but the historical fiction with the storyline was still enough to be engaged and invested in Megge's life. Historical fiction with magical elements, strong women, and a beautifully built lush setting, this book will take you fully into Megge's world. I've listened to the audiobook, and narration by Jan Cramer is wonderfully immersive and perfect for the tone and feel of the book.

    The Lady of the Cliffs gives us a Megge that is facing her own fears. Megge's journey across Cornwall to the Cove called The Sorrows, brings forward her bravery and courage. And this is what I liked about this series. We slowly get to experience Megge's growth - it's not hurried or forceful, but it occurs with a beautiful pace. I loved the story-building in this book. We get to see a lot of recurring characters from the first book, and each of these characters play an important role in this book.

    I was so excited when this book came available. It had been a wile sense I read the first book, I should have gone back and read the first book again to refresh my memory. As I reed this book, I started to remember what had happened in the first book. The author didn’t go into long detail of things that happened in the first book, but she did give just enough detail to refresh my memory.

I didn’t see any where in the book where it said anything about how old Megge was even though it says it in the description. The blacksmith and Tinker are back and tormenting Megge’s family. They have killed another member of her family and are still trying to steal her books. Megge is learning that there is more to her power than she thought and there is a lot for her to learn. A little girl comes to find Megge to take her back to the cliffs to see the eval that has been happening in the name of the goddess. Can Megge put an end to the sacrifices that have started up again? Can she be as good of a healer as she is destined to be? There isn’t a lot of action in this book. It seemed that there was a lot more talking and explaining than actual action. Overall, it was a good book. I hope there will be another one.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I started listening to The Lady of the Cliffs by Rebecca Kightlinger, narrated by Jan Cramer. However, as I listened I got caught up in the story and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Lady of the Cliffs is actually the second book in a series (The Bury Down Chronicles), which starts with Megge of Bury Down and, although I found it easy enough to work out what was going on, I would probably suggest that readers start with Book 1 and take it from there.

The story takes place in 13th century Cornwall, where Megge lives in a small settlement. The ladies of Bury Down are healers, they have other skills too, dreaming dreams, hearing voices and seeing visions. They are troubled by the Blacksmith who wants their books for his own ends and who is happy to kill in order to get them. And who is the child who doesn't speak, found wandering alone and why does she get so upset when anyone mentions the word 'sisters'? How these and many other questions are answered is the subject matter of this engaging novel. Recommended for fans of historical fiction with supernatural elements, well written, well read, a great way to spend a wet day.

I was sucked into this book immediately and found myself on the edge of my seat a time or two. This is definitely a well developed saga and I was happy to get to read it.

    This is a really good historical fantasy series if you are a fan of Juliet Marillier or Patricia McKillip give this series a try. You will want to read the first book Megge of Bury down also narrated by the wonderful Jan Cramer. Megge was just a child in the last book but now in 1285 CE Megge is a woman coming into her own, even the things she tried to fight off in the first book!

I was sad to see so few people have added this to their library in Goodreads because y’all are missing out on a really good book. I hope this one gets some more buzz and I will do my part to help! I highly recommended the audiobook version of this book narrated by Jan Cramer. I received this audiobook from Rowan Moon Publishers and Netgalley for a fair and honest review. 4 stars

    My second journey into Bury Down after getting a copy of Megge of Bury down as an ARC and this was better. It doesn't suffer from second book syndrome; here, Megge is coming into her own and learning what life is like without her mother to guide her.

There are some more stakes in this one, Megge has some great character growth, new characters are introduced that I'm actually interested in reading more about. Again, the narrator was Jan Cramer, and she's excellent. She has a real skill with accents and keeping each character an individual. Once again, overall, a really nice story that surpasses the "day in the life" feeling of the first book. Now that the universe is established, Rebecca Knightlinger can spread her wings a bit and get into the mythology of Murga and Bury Down as a whole.

The sequel to Megge of Bury Down, The Lady of the Cliffs follows Megge as she finally takes the vows to become the Lady of Bury Down. Megge begins to have visions and hear voices enticing her back to the Cliffs of Kernow, which she has only visited in previous lives. There, a destiny waits Megge that none of the Seers of Bury Down could have foreseen.

Megge showed a lot of character growth in this book, and I liked getting to know the extended network of people helping her and her cousin Birgitta in this book.

    I chose The Lady of the Cliffs as book #2 for Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon 2020. I enjoyed Megge of Bury Down (the Bury Down Chronicles book 1 ) and I reviewed both the eARC and audiobook versions for that book. Cornwall is a place that I love as I went on family vacations there. It is, however, a county in the country I was born in that I don't know much about because at least 4 hours from where I grew up. The scenery is stunning and the locals are friendly.

It was very interesting to be witness to what it was like in the era the book is set. Now, in book 2, Megge is a teenager and The Lady of the Cliffs is just as fantastically detailled as book 1. Rebecca Kightlinger is truly talented in worldbuilding and creating characters. Her journey was interesting to be taken on.

    I just couldn’t get on with this one I found the narrators voice grating and just couldn’t get into it at all. And found myself forcing myself to keep listening. This one was not for me, I’m afraid. There was just to much to take in and my brain at the minute isn’t working at it’s best because of my Chemo. The writer does have a talent for writing that was clear and so I would say If the blurb sound like your sort of thing give it a go. But for me it just wasn’t working.

    The first book in this series ("Megge of Bury Down") set a high bar and "The Lady of the Cliffs" went way beyond it. The characters grow, the story strengthens, and the warmth continues. There's a feeling of belonging that this series gives the reader and I could happily read/listen over and over again. I hope there are many more books to come.
