I got this book as a kindle freebie a while ago and I'm glad I did cause it was a sweet paranormal story with a happy ending that brought tears to my eyes.
A lot of other reviewers seem to mind that the charachters don't speak the language of the 1800's, I didn't mind really. If I want to read something in old english I'll read some classic literature.
I like the writing style of the author, it was fluent and easy to read.
That made Somber Island a more than enjoyable story, although maybe a tad too short.
It didn't feel rushed like some other short books but I would've like more details here and there.

It's a stand alone book and a sweet story so if you want a fast read in between series, this is it.

Oh, and I really loved the cover, which rarely happens for me in the PNR/UF genre cause I find most covers to be unimaginative and cheesy.
