Review by: Hobbe Noxious on June 03, 2015 :
This is one of the first books I found on Smashwords that, after reading the description, it quite literally caused myself and a friend to burst out laughing. The concept was just so... ridiculous.

Now, I know they say to never judge a book by a cover, or a movie by it's trailer, and I do my best to avoid this habit, so I eventually made my way back here to give it an honest chance.

In concept, it's still fairly ridiculous. In execution? Less so. At the end of the day, this is a fairly oddball interpretation of sidhe mythology. It's well written, and has nice little wood-cut style illustrations throughout. The pacing feels rushed at times, however. Too much happening, far too quickly. Introduction, conflict, and final resolution all happen well before you have the chance to really form any attachments.

I love this little book. The story is full of twists and turns, and while it deals with adult themes, it does so very subtly. Any girl aged 13-103 would find a wonderful world to lose herself inside the pages.
