I'm an awesome 24 y/o reader and writer of YA fantasy/historical fantasy. I mainly write about awesome ladies and the people who love them. I work at a library and I'm a contributing reviewer to Bibliodaze.
I don't know if it was the mood I was in when I read this or not, but I had trouble connecting. The writing was lovely, certainly, but I felt the mystery was mishandled a little and while I appreciated the main character's arc, I wasn't overly wild about the romance either. Still, I did finish it in one day, so that's something.
