I think I start every review of a Sarah Addison Allen book the same way. I gush about how much I love her writing and how I want to live in the books she writes. This book is no different… it’s not my favorite of her books, but I still loved it and read it in about five hours.
One weird bit was that she repeated herself a few times in the book and I don’t recall her doing that in the past. For example she must have explained three or four different times how the government had bought the land and turned it into a national park. It was also different to see that the magic in this book wasn’t as subtle as it usually is. Not that it was bad, it was just interesting to see so many people in the book accepting of magical things this time around.
I loved seeing a little sneak of previous characters make cameo’s too. In all, I really enjoyed the book.
