    I nearly didn t re read this, remembering being bored with it and, yeah I was mostly bored with it I stopped at about 1 3 of the way through for a few days before powering through.Like a couple of other stories in this series, I think my main issue is the pacing there are so many pages devoted to set up with an abrupt unsatisfying climax, not to mention the chapters devoted to the gloating, eeeeeeevil antagonists point of view.For this particular book, I found myself frustrated with elemen I nearly didn t re read this, remembering being bored with it and, yeah I was mostly bored with it I stopped at about 1 3 of the way through for a few days before powerin...

    A pretty pleasurable read overall Mercedes Lackey, when I was 12 or so, was my first favorite author of my life, but I haven t read any of her books in years Due to a passionate interest in the Pre Raphaelites, the main character is brought up among Pre Raphaelite style artists I had this book recommended to me, and decided to try her work again Overall, this book is quite enjoyable, don t get me wrong But there s a reason it s not a 5 star book.The bad guys are absolutely flat as card A pretty pleasurable read overall Mercedes Lackey, when I was 12 or so, was my first favorite author of my life, but I haven t read any of her books in years Due to a passionate interest in the Pre Raphaelites, the main character is brought up among Pre Raphaelite style artists I had this book recommended to me, and decided to try her work again Overall, this...

    Okay, I love Sleeping Beauty stories, but this one was just awful The character seemed a bit dim and the romantic hero wasn t even introduced until closer to the end I was not feeling this one.

    4 5A very enjoyable read, and though it followed the constraints of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty , it was a small feature to the historical detail and elemental magic decorating the main plot I read mixed reviews in between beginning this story which made a tad apprehensive, but I m glad I stuck on It seems slow moving stories when dressed up with historical tidbits are my cuppa tea In some reviews it was described as aimless, and I do agree that the story meandered, however this was somet 4 5A very enjoyable read, and though it followed the...

    Confession time that last paragraph of the synopsis is my own The actual last paragraph on the back of my book is way too spoilery.I first read this book in my middle school years and I distinctly remember thinking it wasn t nearly as good as The Serpent s Shadow Upon rereading it, I was inclined to change my opinion Until I reached the end of the book But, before I talk about the bad, I will talk about the good because I really did enjoy this book, and if it wasn t for that one oh so an Confession time that last paragraph of the synopsis is my own The actual last paragraph on the back of my book is way too spoilery.I first read this book in my middle school years and I distinctly remember thinking it wasn t nearly as good as The Serpent s Shadow Upon rereading it, I was inclined to change my opinion Until I reached the end of the book But, before I talk about the bad, I will talk about the good because I really did enjoy this book, and if it wasn t for that one oh so a...
