Envy will eat you up until nothing is left. In this story of two brothers, set in a magical world with fairies and miracles and power, one brother covets what the other has. The world is engaging, the characters are real, and the lesson is timeless.

Fable-like story made for an enjoyable read. Half-elf, magical flowers, spells, and a castle! The rift between the brothers and the question of whether or not the main character would find redemption, kept me engaged.
