Rating: 4/5 EXQUISITE STARS
I can become very attached to a person, to a character. I am more than just ecstatic to find two, Saturday Woodcutter and Peregrine Starburn, protagonists that I more than love. I cannot describe this lovely emotion. I hooray and long for a new scene between them. I am amazed that these characters still linger in my admiration. I only wish Saturday fought harder during entrapped periods on a mountain.
Hero by Alethea Kontis is the second book to a series set in a fairy tale land. The first situates on the youngest sister, Sunday, and the classic frog prince. (While sharing the trials of being a man) This second book continues sharing the trails of humanity, love and family. The world carries magic, mirrors, mountains, families, witches who cause shape shifting, and adventures.
This youthful book is addicting. The story is bolstered with mysteries and romance. I love learning more about Saturday’s brother Jack since the previous book talked about his past, but did not reveal his current story.
The writing is exquisite! Every line is admirably structured. Every moment makes a difference. I especially enjoyed the detailed glimpse on mirrors.
I liked the conclusive of the book's arc ending that still left room for a continuous plot for these incredible characters.
Thanks for reading!
