I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has all the classic elements in a modern fairy tale including some ancient “fairy” folk. Yet it is not predictable. The narration and multitude of different voices used by the narrator adds to the enjoyment. Some of the humour included made me laugh out loud.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, via Audiobook Boom, and have voluntarily left this review." This story was long and twisted and filled with some fantasy, some paranormal. The love story was nice but the rest of the story not so much. SE and Garreth meet when she is engaged to decipher words on a cave wall. Garreth is trying to save his homeland from a more than 800-year-old curse that happens every 400 years.The secondary characters played a great role. The narrator was very monotoned and did not inject many emotions nor help me know when things were changing.scenes.
This is the kind of romance that gains momentum as the plot developes. It is like slow burning embers that are coaxed to life with nurturing energy. It is more adventure than anything else, with codes to decipher and translate, mysteries to solve and enemies to uncover. It is rife with mythical creatures and has a healthy serving of humour too. It starts at quite a slow pace, as any mystery probably would, but as the pieces of the puzzle fall in place, so does the growing passion between Essie and Gareth. I will admit that I wasn't convinced I would like the story to begin with because it meandered a bit. But it slowly took shape and I found myself committed to the quest. I do wish it ended with more pizzazz but it was in keeping with the rest of the story.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
