nice enough, but lacking a measure of polish.

a lot of wasted opportunities for emo gut-punches, and not enough of a sense of place to paint effective pictures.

come to think of it, nothing the central characters did made much sense, to me.

the more i reflect on it, the less i like it.

Erard, the protagonist of this short story, is the designated heir to the throne of his kingdom. He was born together with his twins Dragonet and Artaud, who have consorted for a while to prevent Erard to inherit the kingdom. His father, the King, is displeased with his three sons and he decides to make them prove their valor by sending them to several quests. During one of these quests he ends up in an enchanted forest, looking for help. He knocks at a house and is welcomed by a magnificent hum ...more

This is a fairy tale (no pun intended) and as such, I should not probably try to find it any other meaning if not that of the happily ever after of a fairy tale, but there were at least two points that gave me the impression there was something more.

Erard is a wandering prince, one of three princes their father sent to the world in quite “meaningless” quests, like in this case, he has to find a special dog, a dog that will earn him his father’s favour. After a wreckage, Erard is ashore, more or

This follows pretty much the same plot as the fairy tale its based on, but since thats a more obscure fairy tale probably not everyone will know it. Even so, it's pretty easy to figure out where the story is going, but somehow that didn't make me enjoy it any less. The writing is very fairy-tale appropriate in tone, and it has the prince and quests. The characters are much more fleshed out than in a typical fairy tale though, and I really liked them and couldn't wait for the end to come, even th ...more

Wow! A M/M romance fairy-tale! While on a quest for his father, injury and bad luck causes Érard to arrive in a strange forest. Collapsing at the door of a glowing house within that forest, he awakens to find himself being tended to by a cat; a cat who walks like a human. From there, the story unfolds more quests, magic, and danger. Yes, exactly like a fairy-tale...

This review was originally written for MM Good Book Reviews.

I have read plenty of GLBT “fairy tales, and have yet to find one that really floats my boat…until now. I loved fairy tales as a child and read them well into high-school and beyond. Not the Disney variety, but the dark tales of the Brothers Grimm and the magical stories of Andrew Grey. This is a tale that could fit nicely into a canon of classical tales.

Érard is the eldest of royal triplets. The young men have been sent on a quest by t

This is definitely a fairy tale, slow in unfolding and taking a leisurely pace through the stages of development as both Erard and the mysterious 'Cat' learn about each other and their fates. There were a few interesting twists and some unexpected develoments, and overall it was nice to see both of them slowly fall for each other.

If you like fairy tales and appreciate a few twists, you may ike this short book.

Recommends it for: Fantasy readers searching also a romantic fairy tale
So short, and so complete! A prince trying to win and be a king find a magic (fairy) creature, in a cat form.
What is more important? Be the most powerful man in the realm, or live in a simple house, surround by magic and love?

Read it to know... If the prince as you what you would want? Fortune and fame, or love? Both can give you hapiness? Maybe... Power and money can, but be happy having all the money of the world will never give you comfort and love... But it's tempting... And the prince may d

It's pretty good, but it sticks rather closely to the original and that actually kind of ends up hurting it. It's a nice read, but not earth-shattering or rave-worthy, actually.

*shrug.
Not bad?
Meh.

The story was enjoyable short fairy tale. And the end was predictable, "They lived happily ever after"

Jennifer likes pina coladas, sushi, and getting caught in the rain... but she doesn't need rescuing. Some might say that she's already found her inner Ogre. When not chained to the keyboard to exorcise the characters in her head, she can be found playing in the dirt with green things, concocting strange potions out of green things, and riding her recumbent bicycle (it's a cool machine, but small r ...more
