“You cannot presume what our departed High Priestess would say or do at a time like this.”

“Yes, I can!” cried Brigitta … “I can, I can. I carry her here.” Brigitta pounded on her chest. She burst into sobs, and Elder Dervia wrapped her arms around her, pulling her into her bosom.

Thanks to Ondelle’s parting gift, Brigitta is now a rare deodyte, a faerie bound by two element

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Danika Dinsmore once again wrote an incredible story. This book places Brigitta into some difficult situations that give her a chance to grow and shine. In this book, we find that she's received not just a second element from the High Priestess, but also new memories that show her how to restore the elemental balance of the world. No one believes that Brigitta is actually seeing memories and attribute it to her grieving over th

Ondelle of Grioth is book three of Danika Dinsmore’s Faerie Tales from the White Forest, set to be released in April 2014. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for a fair review.

Ondelle of Grioth continues the story of Brigitta of the White Forest. The elemental faeries of the White Forest are losing their connection to the Ancients, the source of their magic. Brigitta, a deodyte (a faerie with two elements), is haunted by the memories of Ondelle, her dead High Priestess, which guide

Today, I am reviewing the Fantasy novel Ondelle of Grioth by Danika Dinsmore. This is the third installment of the Faerie Tales from the White Forest series. For the purposes of disclosure, this is the only novel in the series that I have read – I haven’t seen the first two.

I give this book a 5/5. Yes, it’s finally happened – a book received an actual perfect score. Here is my breakdown.

Characters: 5/5. Danika has created a society of supernatural creatures that is believable and relatable. Eac

This was a wonderful third installment in the "Faerie Tales From The White Forest" series. Though it had been a while since I'd read the second book, Dinsmore did an excellent job of weaving in enough information so that I didn't feel lost. This book put the protagonist, Brigitta into some difficult situations that gave her a chance to shine. And we got to see more of the world these elementally-attuned faeries live

In addition, she is recalling memories that belong to Ondelle, experiences that drive Brigitta to make a choice that sends her back into danger to save not j

Recommends it for: writers of fantasy, young readers, the young at heart, lovers of fantasy and the fae.
Disclaimer: I received an advance copy of the book in exchange for a fair review.

Daninka Dinsmore does not disappoint with "Ondelle of Grioth", the third installment in the White Forest series. My only regret is that I do not have the fourth book to leap into immediately.

In this book, Brigitta has returned home to the White Forest, with some of her new friends, and she is trying to settle back into her destined position while mourning the passing of her friend and Mentor, Ondelle of Grioth. It i

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I’ll admit up front that Ondelle of Grioth, the third book in the Faerie Tales from the White Forest series, is not my kind of novel. I like my fantasy reads to be action-packed adventures—fast-paced, exciting, and fraught with peril.

Ondelle of Grioth, on the other hand, is a perfect fit for those who require a more gentle style of storytelling with talking, explaining, describing, and planning, for the most part, taking the place o

I have long admired this author and her poetic prose. In Book Three of the White Forest series, Danika Dinsmore pulls out all the stops on imagination as teen faerie Brigitta faces an Odyssean series of trials to overcome in order to save her home. Readers will want to have read the first two books in the series to fully appreciate the character interactions and recurrences (and surprise reappearances) in this wildly inventive world. Dinsmore has a keen sense of what young readers like, and I kn ...more

Welcome to the world of faries that Danika Dinsmore creates. You'll step into a world so different from the planet Earth and where fairies live in great danger. Brigitta is cursed by the memories of Ondelle. Is Ondelle trying to tell her something? What's happened to Jarlath? Why is he suddenly against Brigitta? Enter if you dare.

Book 3 of a delightful series -- I've enjoyed each one Some young friends of mine are excited to hear I've finished this one, as I passed the previous books to them as well, and they want to continue with the story!
How can an author get a better recommendation than that!

The map illustrations in the front of the book are wonderful. Brigitta learns more about Ondelle and so do we. This brings more adventures her way.
