Oct 05, 09

bookshelves: young-adult
Read in October, 2009

In this case, the atmosphere almost eclipses the heroine. The reader will pull for Miranda, the independent, strong-minded heroine but mostly because they feel they're supposed to. Some of the more minor supporting characters (Eliza, the servant with a talent for healing; the morally complicated and brash Beatrice; and the sly Agnes) seem to jump off the page more. But again, the world Kolosov has created is vibrant and incredibly well-imagined, so the reader will be swept into the story all the same. Although Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty weaves a good deal of magic into the historical fiction, this tale of a young woman's personal journey among the intrigue and romance among the ladies-in-waiting of Elizabeth I's court would probably be of interest to fans of Bray's trilogy.
