I love the fighting fairies and Taryn’s seemingly endless way of trouble finding her in the strangest of circumstances. I admit, I said the same thing at the end of the book as Taryn did as I wanted more NOW. I am very glad the next installment will be coming soon as I need to find out what happens next.
Great read for those looking for a good paced book and fun fantasy story.
"Rollicking" is a very good word for this book, though it also has an underlying wistfulness to it. The protagonist is young and on her own in a world that's not all that hospitable; she's just scraping by, but since she is following her passion for ancient artifacts, she's basically happy. The "people" she has collected around her turn out to be much more than she realized, and to care about her more than she recognized too.
It's well-written, funny in the makes-you-smile way, and nicely produced -- the mechanics are all sound. The first-person voice is informal and conversational, very pleasant. The plot moves along remarkably. One reviewer complained about the protagonist's cluelessness -- to me, she seemed smart enough. She reminded me of myself at that age -- doing her pretty decent best with not enough knowledge or information. You know, growing up. I loved this book.
However, she is a good storyteller and these are fun stories.
The one thing she does do, that I can't stand that Dan Brown does too, is to create a dangling end at the end of a chapter or story.
I want resolution in my stories, or I get tired or reading them.
