Unlike most stories following this trope, nothing is made of the revelation of her parentage - footnoting it in this way is one of the several twists in this story that leads me to the Three Stars rating. Its a quick read, I finished all five books on Saturday (admittedly, I read faster than most), and there is no depth here - I wouldn't consider them re-readable - but I will finish the series as its published. For parents considering this series as a possible purchase for their children, there are monsters, but the scenes in which they appear aren't too grisly. Some romance, and sex is alluded to, but not described.
One thing I would like to point out is that the woman on the cover seems grown but the main character is eleven years old to start. I was expecting something oriented for older people based on the cover but still thoroughly enjoyed the story.
It was fast-paced, easy to read, and definitely well-written. I was immersed in the story the entire time, which, for such a short and fast story, could have easily not been the case. The author is highly talented and managed to create a vibrant, detailed and emotionally engaging story in very few words. I actually think it could have easily been a bit longer and more fleshed out if the author had wanted, but it by no means needed any more than it offered, it is an excellent story as is.
I will be purchasing the next book as soon as possible to continue reading. I need to find out where Anais ends up in this dark, medieval world full of blood magic, monsters, and mysterious deaths.
I like the time period it's written in and the depictions of life in the Great House, as well as in the village. There is a bit of adventure in this story, and I'm hoping for more in book two. I liked this story well enough to purchase the series in order to read the continuing story of Anais.
I find it a shame that the author and publisher don't invest some money in reformatting and editing the script. I would be delighted to pay $10.00 for such a well- conceived book if it was presented more professionally.
I hope to see more from this author and am looking forward to the further adventures of Anais.
