really liked it

Wow. I don't know what I was expecting, but thank you Saundra Mitchell for The Springsweet! It is an incredibly lovely, satisfying read. The world she creates is extremely vivid and beautifully written.

Zora is a brilliant character. She is selfish and everything about her character felt right. I really felt like I knew her, and her actions/reactions weren't shocking, but stayed true to her character. She isn't the only brilliant character either, I really enjoyed Emerson and some of the other secondary characters as well.

Though The Springsweet is rather predictable, I found myself engrossed enough in the story to want to continue on. This book very much felt like filler- I am crossing my fingers for more action and conflict in the next installment.

I definitely recommend this book to those that read the first one, The Vespertine. It is very similar.
