I loved Adele and how she fighted to change her situation. I can't wait to see more of Stanford and know why all that happened to him.
But above all I wish to see how this story will end for Wilmont, a villian that made me hate him in just seconds and even when I caught a glimpse of why and what is in his mind I want to know more .
I highly recommend this short story. My only wish is to know more.
This has been a pleasant challenge for me to review. I've finally decided to take a step back and look at this in a different category and go from there.
This is a short story. I am not familiar with short stories. I had to stop myself from looking at this as a full length novel. Judging it as so. And when did that I saw the beauty in it.
I read a lot. Sometimes a book week. Sometimes two books a week. And I realized something when I sat down with this---I do a lot of skipping. You know, skimming. Over all those mundane details in search of plot and dialogue.
So imagine my surprise when I naturally started doing that with this lovely little gem & found I didn't need to! I noticed my Kindle said I had 5 minutes left in the book. What? No! Actually, yes! Yes indeed. That's quite pleasant. Let's get straight to it then! Ha! Look! There's the plot right there! Oooh and look, a lovely twist here!
And just when I started falling in love with the characters, the overall tone and the story itself, it ended. All whilst waiting at the pediatrician's office for my children's appointment.
How absolutely brilliant.
So that's what short stories are? Lovely. Lovely for a busy mum. Lovely for a heavy reader who's hands are always filled with a book at any precious idle opportunity that may find.
I read this twice in the same week. I liked it that much.
Ashley Maker is new to me as an author and I greatly enjoyed her writing style (I have already added her other work to my tbr) and this story grabbed and held my attention immediately.
Although this could make an exceptional full length novel (and I had to shut my writer's brain off there) it is perfect without being expanded upon. And I am greatly looking forward to the continuation of this little series!
I was pretty excited to read this one since I really enjoyed Ashley Maker's first novel, Under the Trees. Once again she writes a winner!
Cursed to live life as a marble statue in the evil sorcerers Wilmonts collection, Adele is only able to be turned human by either an incantation done by Wilmont or when a moon beam touches her skin. Awake and able to see, hear, and feel what goes on around her, Adele spends years as his beautiful captive. Her quest for freedom and her promise to her mother right before she was struck by the curse keeps Adele strong throughout her captivity, always looking for a means of possible escape. Can Adele keep her long ago made promise to her mother, and escape the evil Wilmonts ghastly collection? And what about all the other sculptures scattered around the room in which she is held? Are they too victims of the evil Wilmont?
My only qualm with this book (novella? short story?) is that is was way too short! When I received the copy I didn't realize that is was more of a short story versus a full length novel and I was left seriously wanting more (which is not necessarily a bad thing per se...as long as we get more to the story soon!). I was totally engrossed in the story line and was amazed when I zipped through it in 20 minutes. The concept for the story was definitely unique and I am sure I will find myself looking twice the next time I peruse an art gallery. I would absolutely love to see this as a full length novel, or at the very least, more short stories within this world!
If you like the following then this story is for you:
2. Cute Romance
3. Fairy Tales
4. Short-Stories or Novellas
This is a thirty-minute read and hit the spot between after finishing a big book. Perfect for those who love fantasy and currently in a book slump! The ending made me want more and I'll definitely be reading the next installment as soon as it releases!
