This is a Book that you might pass by in the first few pages. It starts out slow but like any monumental work, a good foundation is needed for towering success and this book is a towering success. Ms. Gratton writes with a succulent verbosity that paints a vivid tapestry of human fragility. There is so much passion and pain that, at times, it was difficult to continue. Destiny and desire conflict with daunting responsibility. Three sisters contend for ruling a small isle.
The personalities of the three sisters and many of the supporting characters are the high light of the book. Ms. Gratton is truly artistic with her personality development. Ban The Fox is a prime example of a character that is easy to love and to hate. In spite of the book being a fantasy, the author shows the enormous complexity of human relationships.
I truly enjoyed this book and will award it more than five Amazon stars if that were possible.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
