Now the story itself isn't about the girl in the prequel, Loesie, though she plays a very pitiful part. I mean, you will pity that poor girl. Rather, it stars Johanna, a girl lucky enough to be a merchant's daughter and high enough on the status scale to be invited to the ball. But Johanna wants nothing to do with frills and fashion of the day. She wants fun and adventure. Be careful what you wish for? She asks the question, if the aim for a young woman is to be married, why are so few of the married ladies happy. That attitude makes it well worth the read! Johanna is strong and cares about others. Cliffhanger be damned, she is worth learning more about. AND Johanna can 'hear' the willows just like Loesie. And she has more opportunities to do something about the warnings.
This is a bit of a cautionary tale about organized religion and reflects our own history of the witch trials. I found Ms. Jansen's take on the subject refreshing. Again, that makes it worth the read. All in all, I think, if you can afford it, that this is a fun adventure and worth pursuing through the series.
Innocence Lost isn't as good as her science fiction books, but this will certainly have you turning the pages to see what will happen next.
Well. I must admit to not having any great expectations when I opened this up to have a read. In truth, I thought I would lose interest fast.
Nothing could have been further from the truth.
As each page turned I wanted more. This was a good story, and a jolly good read.
