's review

really liked it

Darkly delightful Tam Lin retelling! The language of the writing was wonderful, fit the setting perfectly, and the characters were all so alive. At times it felt like I was reading a southern, civil war-era Downton Abbey. Except with magic. I'm not sure how to classify the magic, either; was it magical realism? Fantasy? I don't know, but I loved it. Definitely a must-read. I think this will also have strong appeal to adults.

Jane Nickerson Not a sequel. Merely a "companion" book. Read on. Hope you enjoy.

Frankie Brown Thanks for that clarification! Will definitely read on.
