This novella was beautifully written. I immediately felt drawn to Elzibeth. I experienced her anger, her sense of betrayal, her joy, and her sorrow. My compliments and thanks to Mr. Gallowglas for this touching story.
Overall, this is a charming novella about how the simple magics of music and love can help us overcome our hatreds, fears, and pains. The words of the story resonate with a magic of their own as the ghostly strains of Elzibeth's music spring audibly to life in the reader's mind. The ending is a bit weak, but the story as a whole is well worth the 99-cent price tag.
In just these few pages, the author gives you characters that are so easy to relate to and so easy to care for. Magic, action, and real emotions - what more could you be seeking?! My next read is going to be more from Gallowglas - I'm praying that I'm just as enchanted. (I wish there were more adventures with these characters - I honestly want to know more about them [to the author: hint, hint...?!])
I managed to pick this up free for the kindle, but it is EASILY worth the buck it's usually listed for - buy it.
(Yes, as at least one reviewer pointed out, there are some typos, etc in the text. I was caught up and engaged with the story, so the few errors that presented themselves were noted, but not annoying. I've read some books that were actually hard to read because of poor editing. This was not one of them - the story is TOO GOOD.)
I like this kind of fantasy where the characters feel like real people and each page produces action, situations, and descriptions that *almost* fit what we understand from our world. There are big things that we don't see around us every day, like dragons and knights in armor, but there are little ones that sneak up on us as we're reading that underline the fact that we're in another world: kids are present in taverns because it's the place people congregate, people have to wait a whole year for manufactured goods because the peddlers were snowed out. You get the picture. And that's one of the nicest surprises I found in this book. The pictures in my head seemed to put themselves together as the story flowed, much like they were helped along by the magic of the flute.
The new edition has very few typos.
Thank you, Mr Gallowglas for yet another gem.
Almost lyrical in his writing, he tells a good tale and transports you into the world of his imagination. Suitable for any age group. Sometimes a little bit dark, but always riveting, his storytelling makes you look forward to his next tale.
I almost docked a star for poor proofreading, but just didn't have the heart; it was that pleasing to read even with the wrong words here and there.
