But I really enjoyed the entire book and I expect to read it again, maybe even in the next few months.
Gingell has an ability to create a sense of fun where another author would just tell a story. I tried to think of some things that bothered me to include in this review, but after the first read through nothing stands out. Rose's youth seemed to fit the context, the ending was just right, and if some of the secondary characters were a bit two-dimensional, well, that just allowed me to focus on the main story line without being dragged through the dramas of secondary people I really wasn't invested in.
Given how different Wolfskin, Masque and Spindle were from each other, I can't wait to see what else Gingell has for us in the future.
Bastian is a bit old for Rose, but at least he has been cursed. Maybe he's not really that much older.
I loved the end with the tricky magic hut and curse breaking and forest revenge. There was just a splash of romance and nothing inappropriate. Nothing too violent, either.
Every character has their own personality, which I like, even the salamander and the garden patches. I was smeptical about reading this book because it just didn't sound interedting. A tom girl living in the forest? A cursed wolf? I had no idea there would be gryphons and wardens and leafy hood anchors and village dances with dryads and deep forest off the paths. I have no idea if there was much of a government or taxes or anything beyond the village and forest, but I loved the ideas the readers did see.
Rose is a chatty young girl when first you meet her. It's in the first person, so it took a little getting used to her chatty narrative. She's got a big imagination and wants to be a pirate called Cutlass Rose so she could keep her older sister in satin and pearls.
The narrative changes as she gets older. You're there throughout the years with her and the changes are subtle until she's thinking in a more mature narrative. It's really quite amazing how well it flows that you experience her maturity as you read about her adventures and struggles.
The characters are all great. There's no one dimensional person --- even the "bad guy" gets the comeuppance. I don't want to spoil it as there's a slight mystery when Wardens of the forest (one to whom Rose is apprenticed) starts disappearing.
The wolf plays an integral part in the book, as he's with her from her earliest apprenticeship as a young girl to her journey to young womanhood.
The book does have a traditional "fairy tale" quality, but like I said, it is a wonderful read full of great characters, a curse, a mystery, villains and a love story.
Don't hesitate to buy it! I'm about to grab a few more books by this author myself :)
The author's words are so well chosen that they never get in the way of the story. Gingell balances just the right amount of sensory imagery and suspenseful action to keep the reader enthralled. With a touch of mystery, a dash of sweet romance, and a pinch of humor, this book has everything a fantasy lover could desire. I would read anything Gingell published and look forward to adding more delightful books to my Kindle.
