My library does not have this. I wonder if I can request an ebook through interlibrary loan? I'll see if I can once I've caught up on some of my library holds. I like this author.

Leah (flying_monkeys) | 1009 comments My library doesn't have it either. :(

Mine doesn't either. That's why I did not vote for it already in the last poll. I've made so many interlibrary loan requests already so I'm probably not going to request this one.
Fortunately it has all the others however.

Who has a Kindle in the US?

I'm willing to buy it and lending is enabled, so I can share it with one of you.

I would love that! My budget for books is nonexistent until I start working full time again.

Then after I'm done with reading it, I'll send it your way.

Thanks!

Michelle (Ardea) | 5 comments Because the author wrote the book as a free web serial, she has made the entire book available for free. The site address is: www.redwombatstudio.com/portfolio/sum...

At the website, scroll down and you will see the chapters listed, along with an introduction by by author. I hope this helps with the availability issue.

Cheers and good reading...Ardea.

Annette | 266 comments I just finished! This story will stick with me for a long time. Such vivid imagery and wonderful dialogue! In my review, I said the story was “Absolutely absurd while totally logical.”

Great! I really like the author. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Michelle (Ardea) | 5 comments I loved this story. The heroine is brave, thoughtful, and kind. She embraces her adventure which is a wonderful change from the cowering damsel in distress usually seen in fairy tales.


Melanti | 2125 comments Mod
Finally finished! It was alright, but I am not a huge fan. It definitely seems to be written for a much younger audience than Bryony and Roses was, even though it's technically geared towards an adult audience.

I'll say more in the spoiler thread.

I'm a third of the way through, and am enjoying it very much. Like Michelle, I'm finding Summer to be brave, thoughtful, and kind. I also like the weasel sidekick. I'm reading it as straight middle grade.

Very true.

I enjoyed this one. It also fits in with our previous portal theme. Has anyone else read Every Heart a Doorway? In it, portal worlds are labeled on scales--Nonsense, Logical, Wicked, Good. It's interesting trying to label portal worlds. I would call this one Nonsense/Good. If you're curious, here's a little more: https://www.tor.com/2017/11/20/all-th...

I'll post more thoughts in the spoiler thread.
