Help and danger collide when he encounters an injured runaway that he begins to help, though he hides his true self from her. Will his growing feelings for her be strong enough to allow him to brave the light and the pain of the magic spell?
This was a tough one for me to rate. Here’s the thing:
So why, you might ask, would someone with my tendencies read a short fantasy prequel? Honestly? The blurb looked super-interesting and hinted at romance, which I’m a sucker for.
Even though the story was well-written, well-edited and beautifully illustrated (the author is also the illustrator), I didn’t enjoy it as much as a fan of fantasy novels would. But even I (with my limited knowledge of the genre) understand that the rich character development I love would be darn-near impossible in a 52-page prequel (that probably came later, in the full-length novel), and that the use of narrators is fairly common in the genre.
That being said, I’m giving this a 3.5, because I think fantasy lovers will enjoy it, and it held my attention from beginning to end.
