's review

it was ok
bookshelves: youngadult, fantasy

Eh - this was OK. No, it was pretty bland actually, which is surprisingly when you consider that it's a book about a Summer King and Winter Queen and mortals becomes fairies and so on. But everything seems very removed. We can always reach fairly happy compromises for every character involved, so it never feels like anything matters very much. I didn't particularly care how it all worked out, which didn't make for a good read.

JM I was a little disappointed by the happy compromises too, I admit; the stakes felt huge, and then turned out to not be so huge as all that. Still, I'd been told by somebody whose opinion I respected that this was absolutely *dreadful*, so found myself pleasantly surprised.
