  • Wow!

    I like the design of the book, the name caught my attention immediately as it is original and sounded a little dark but interesting. I love the fact it started straight in with the magical side of things like how Una was a Knight and that made me more intrigued on how she got to the point she felt she had to hide who she was. It was followed with a little backstory of fern in the future after the magical side was mentioned. The story just kept making me want to read more from fern's dad saying he didn't want other children to find them weird to Una denying her knighthood. The area was explained very well with how wolves lurk to the simple sound of the cemetery being referred to as 'silent' it makes the world more realistic for the reader to engage into. I love fantasy books and if I saw this in a shop I would definitely want to have a look at it knowing what I know from the first chapter.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Living In A Dreamworld

    In my opinion what doesn't help this book is the fact that Fern, our supposed heroine, is not a particularly likeable character. I found her to be unsympathetic and verging on the annoying. Yes, I get that her life isn't particularly great but it just felt like she blamed everyone else for her isolation from society whilst existing in it and did nothing at all to help herself. No wonder the order of Annwn didn't want her and only wanted Ollie - she is far too self absorbed to make a good protector. The world building is pretty average as well, you get a bit of a feel for Annwn but it never felt fully fleshed out. Whilst based off Welsh folklore there is still an awful lot of room for the author to build a full and rich world but it never quite materialises. There are some interesting details but then it tapers off in to generics again which draws you out of the world again and again whilst in the midst of the "action". Couple this with a rotating cast of characters that are, on the whole, never properly introduced and it does become a bit of a muddy mess. It just felt like the whole book was a huge missed opportunity. It is a real shame as I was looking forward to a ripping YA fantasy and what I actually got was a set of good ideas that were not actualised so left me feeling more than a bit flat. This review has been a long time coming. I actually read this book between the 5th and 9th July 2020 so my memory is a bit foggy about all the plot lines. Fortunately, I have a notebook where I jot some initial thoughts on the book and an overall ranking so between the book blurb and that I did have a reasonable handle on what I thought at the time of reading.

    Thanks for your feedback!
