Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner: 2016 Rainbow Award, Best Lesbian Fantasy; 2017 Golden Crown Literary Society Best SciFi/Fantasy
"This is a fairy tale, told in the style of a novel, and a romance at that, but it's a fairy tale to the core. Set in the wild forest and with a cast of the Kings' Huntsmen, woodchoppers, howling wolves, packs of scared torch-wielding villagers and the obligatory curse on the beautiful young woman, it has everything we expect from the best bedtime stories." Velvet Lounger
"What makes this variation different from the usual fairy tale is the very real, almost historical, feel of the milieu and the characters who inhabit the book. If you strip away the magical parts, the book can easily stand alone as a beautiful coming-out and coming-of-age tale in a small town sometime in the pre-industrial past." Jem. Goodreads reviewer

About the Author

Bestselling author Caren Werlinger published her first award-winning novel, Looking Through Windows, in 2008. Since then, she has published fourteen more novels, winning several more awards. Influenced by a diverse array of authors, including Rumer Godden, J.R.R. Tolkein, Ursula LeGuin, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Willa Cather and the Brontë sisters, Caren writes literary fiction that features the struggles and joys of characters readers can identify with. Her stories cover a wide range of genres: historical fiction, contemporary drama, and fantasy, including the award-winning Dragonmage Saga, a fantasy trilogy set in ancient Ireland. She has lived in Virginia for nearly thirty years where she practices physical therapy, teaches anatomy and lives with her wife and their canine fur-children. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
