Grac's Never-ending TBR Pile of Doom rated it 4 months ago
I picked this book up for free, after reading and enjoying other things by the author under various pen names, and especially after reading Swordheart (which I haven't review yet because I am a bad person). This is basically a retelling of the Bluebeard myth, in this case featuring a teenage girl...

I'm a total mess when it comes to curating my ereader. I check things out of the library and compulsively download books both profligately and promiscuously. I follow one link after another in search of books that might appeal, and almost never make note of how I ended up with that one thing on the ...

No commoner could say no to a lord if even dared to try that person and probably his whole family would suffer dire consequences. Also Lord Craven is known to be a friend of the to...

Recently, I read another novella by this writer, Bryony and Roses, and loved it. My 4.5-star review is here.

Brilliant. Lovely little fantasy-fairytale story with a twist. Original. Talented artist, talented author and she has such a quirky sense of humour and odd way of looking at things.And I'm sooooooooooo glad she doesn't write never-ending series.

I will admit that I was first drawn to this book simply because of the cover. Isn't the cover artwork great? ...

This book took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting the story that Kingfisher wrote. The story begins with Rhea, a simple miller's daughter. Her hand in marriage has been asked by a Lord and friend of the local Viscount. This arrangement seems strange to everyone since she seems to be quite ordinary. ...

Rhea is an ordinary miller’s daughter, engaged to be married under suspicious circumstances to a man not of her choosing. He has unknown powers and a manor house full of mysterious women. Rhea has a hedgehog. It claims to be ordinary, but normal hedgehogs don’t act like that. It’s probably not going...

Rhea the millers daughter is if not happy with her life at least content. Even if she has to fish out the occassional mangled gremlin or the ongoing feud she has with a sandwich stealing swan. But her predictable life changed whenher parents tell her that a certain Lord Crevan wants to marry her and...
