NOTE: Ney-Grimm is a favorite; in few other works to I see the kind of insights into personal motivations that she finds.
May I tell you a beautifully sweet story?
Once upon a time, there lived a little girl who had few friends. It wasn't her fault; she was a perfectly nice young lady. It was the fact that there were people who resented her, because her father was important (and her mother was beautiful).
And, in an old mansion in the middle of town, there was a wicked witch! Except, she wasn't wicked, not even a little. But she was afraid that the villagers would find her where she lived in seclusion, and kill her.
And there were bad things happening...
If this sounds like a fairy tale, GOOD! Because the book reads like an EXCELLENT fairy tale for adults and the YA market. Ney-Grimm has created a universe with rules and roles for all KINDS of people to play around in, and I found this a most lovely read.
In fact, I read it to my gift-from-God, happily-ever-after trophy wife Vanessa, the elegant, foxy, praying black grandmother of Woodstock, GA one evening. She drifted off to sleep, and had sweet dreams.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy novels. My only, I can't day complaint...critique I guess, is that the author is constantly describing how beautiful the weather is and the city and the gardens, and while I can believe that a place can have a week of idealistic weather I think the story could have used a little "ugly" weather or places to give it a little more realism. But that is just my opinion and it doesn't change how much I enjoyed reading this book.
I enjoyed this tale but found it to often be redundant, which kept it from being captivating. I will look for other works from this author.
There's an interesting magic system - a kind of inner energy that can be used to heal people. But mostly this is a character focused book, with no distracting romance. The relationships, both new and old, were well written and well thought out. It was a really nice enjoyable read.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
