When I write reviews for indies and rate indie books, I always do so from the perspective of what I believe the author's target audience would feel about the book. I am not this book's target audience, and I do not think those who read my many horror reviews would enjoy this book, unless they also read fantasy of the more magical and mystical kind.
My tastes are actually quite broad, so I did enjoy reading this story. This is mostly due to the quality of Mary Fan's writing - descriptive and poetic at times, language that fits the enchantment, setting, and characters of the work. I was drawn into the story by the quality of the author's word choice and the emotional sensibility behind it.
The story is a quick read that largely takes place in a single setting, with a strong female lead and a smart villain. I would recommend this story to YA and adult fantasy readers. 4.5 stars
The story opens with a girl who wakes up in a cold dungeon with no idea of who she is or how she got there. The tension soon rises as she struggles to understand her situation and cope with the sinister forces that are working against her.
Despite being set largely in a one-room cell, Mary does an excellent job of introducing us to a rich and lavish world that is truly clever and unique. The bad guy is particularly creepy and the ending will surely leave you wanting more. A solid work and a great read.
A girl wakes up in an icy cell without knowing who she is and why she is there. A group of magicians visit her, accompanied by an apprentice who is the only one who seems to care about how the girl feels.
Whenever she tries to remember anything, searing pain shoots through her, but she keeps trying nevertheless as she is sure remembering some facts about her past may help her get out of the cell.
Tell Me My Name was a short but an enjoyable read, with a highly inventive ending. I’ve read all of Mary Fan’s books and this one was as great as the others. I look forward to reading more books by this talented author.
Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).
I rated this book WORTHY!
WARNING! MAY CONTAIN UNHIDDEN SPOILERS! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Tell Me My Name sounds like it ought to be a really original title, but there are several similar titles on B&N, so be sure you pick the right one!
This novella starts out in a really intriguing fashion. A young girl - wonderfully not a trope or cliché girl, but a rather skinny, flat-chested young woman, dressed in a rather skimpy and thin dress which is tied behind her neck and which barely covers her front and not very much of her back, awakes to find herself trapped in a cell of ice walls within which metal bars are buried. There's a tiny window and no door, and she cannot even chip the ice, let alone melt it.Read more ›
