Why is this story of modern characters entering a Russian mythic fairy land not getting 5 stars from me a self identified mythic fairly land enthusiast Well it's a wee bit predictable at times which wouldn't necessarily be all that bad except the narrator freuently challenges the reader to figure out who's who and what's what in what he obviously thinks is a blindingly complex web of mystery And then there's this tension between this mythic pagan world and Christianity and rightly so perhaps But the overriding idea seems to be that Christianity drained Russian lives and the Russian imagination of some magical life force and offered nothing magical in return It's all a bit too simplistic for my taste But I want to end on a positive note since it seems I rarely do and I'm really working on becoming a glass half full kind of person so I really did enjoy following this tale as it wound through a wonderfully detailed Russian fairly land and bumped into some well described fantastic fairy creatures including one of my favorites Baba Yaga

Not too bad but not too good eitherWhile I loved 'The Autumn Castle' by the same author I found the other books that I tried after that one to be a bit disappointing While this one was faster paced and gripping than 'Angel of Ruin''Fallen Angel' it just had too many flaws The writing is alright Not terrific but certainly good enough to at least not bother me which means it's not so bad since I'm fairly hard to please The storyline was interesting enough so that wasn't the problem either though I was very unhappy with the ending However the characters fell short Rosa who is supposed to be this wonderful seductive character actually feels very selfish and unpleasant Daniel is a useless twat Em is okay which makes it all the annoying that she is dealt such bad cards by the author Worst of all is a choice that is made by Rosa at the end of the book The choice is downright selfish cruel and nasty and while it might be tragic an understandable in a well developed character it just doesn't work in this storyline For the choice is based entirely on a bit of information that is kept hidden throughout the book since the author apparently valued mystery over character development uite a shame for this left me feeling unsatisfied while I was uite enthusiastic up until 50 pages from the end
