Not your average fairytale,
This review is from: Twixt (Enchanted Outlaws Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Wow, what an exquisite fantasy to come across amongst all the teen angst and sparkling vampires around today!
Diane J. Reed has created a perfect story for her first novel. It's hard to truly categorize this epic love story. It's certainly a beautiful romance, an exciting fantasy, and could even be considered an adventurous western. I love the combination of genres, it's a the perfect recipe for drawing in the reader. From our travel back in time to discover the fascinating history of the O'Dannan curse, to the modern day literal "fairytale" with a western twist, I can't imagine any reader putting this book down until they know exactly how the story is going to end.
For anyone with children, Reed has really captured the beautiful relationship between a mother and a daughter. As the reader, you root with Ailish and Corvine, hoping they will get out of an awful situation together, you cry with Rose and Crystal, whose relationship was torn from them, and you rejoice at the even the small victories Rose regains with her daughter. Twixt captures about a million different layers of humanity within the relationships it portrays. It is such a wonderful novel to have the pleasure to read and I cannot wait to see what else this lovely author comes up with next!
