's review

bookshelves: fantasy, rating-pg

This is not an easy book to rate, and so I am not going to rate it. While I had some nitpicks, my overall impression is as follows: I inhaled this book in two sittings, particularly enjoying the homage to gothic romances a la Jane Eyre, the Austenesque moral sensibilities and the trippy final act. If an unconventional Austen by way of Bronte mashed into a Silmarillion pastiche sounds like your cup of tea, then you'll have fun reading this book.

Christopher Kou "Unconventional Austen by way of Bronte mashed into a Silmarillion" sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the review.

Suzannah It's definitely a YA novel, fyi ;)

Christopher Kou Not a problem. I've got a fair amount of YA literature on my bookshelf.
