This trilogy has three very enjoyable stories about different characters and circumstances tied to together by the shards of a sword. There are also a couple of short stories at the end that add to some of characters' back stories.The tales are complex, original, and keep you guessing. I love all three stories, and can't really pick one over the other, although as I read each one, I keep thinking it's my favorite. Until I read the next story.
One of Gringell's strengths is her character development. Her heroines are spunky and resourceful without being snarky. So many authors think independent and strong equals mouthy and obnoxious. Not so with Gringell. Her heroes are just as complex and likeable as her heroines, and some of her secondary characters steal the stage now and then because she fills out their characters also. Gringell's world building is also complex and interesting.
Well, you can't go wrong with any of Gringell's works, although if you have to choose, start with her newer works to get her at her most nuanced writing.
I usually love magic systems that are well-defined with clear limits. This book doesn't have that, and yet I love the way the magic system is described (convincing the wall it wasn't a wall, ha).
I usually don't care about romance at all. Yet, in each of these books, I really liked the romance. It's slow, charming, and not at all focused on what the other person looks like.
I don't usually want to read about Fae. I don't usually want to read about an MC who is old enough to have children. I usually don't like when characters die. I don't usually like when books in a series switch povs.
I guess this book isn't like other books.
Fire In The Blood, the 2nd novella here, was my favorite of the three. Dragons and a moving riddle-castle.
Masque and Spindle remain my favorite Gingell books ever, though. I love those retellings.
Keep up the great work W. R. Gingell, looking forward to your next book.
This is mind candy of the best kind. You are most happy you've read it. It was a self indulgent temporal investment that lacks any regret for having been spent thusly.
