I like Dennis McKiernan's writing style. He's taken fairy tales and molded them into what "Might have beens" if we had the full story. This series of "tales" has been fun to read.

the only thing that bothers me about Spring and Autumn is that Céleste and Liaze, while having the potential to be strong characters, are still weak and to be protected. they each rule their own realm, are warriors in their own right, and can think for themselves, but are still to be coddled. Céleste cries when she is asked a riddle and Liaze stays home like a good little woman. sigh.

Once again, the main character falls in love way too fast. I wasn't too impressed with the story. Even the little deviances it takes from the repeatable plot (that's appearing in each book of the series) wasn't too interesting. I'm very disappointed.

If you like McKiernan, and fairy tales, you will like this series overall. If you don't like classic style fantasy, don't bother to pick it up. If you do, it is worth a read.

Entertaining fantasy novel.

This is by far the best in the series though the way the story is told is still choppy and cheesey. I mean who would ever say. " and at that moment he knew he would woo her?"
please.....

Once you get to the 4th book in this series, the format is pretty predictable.
