I read yet another Melanie Dickerson this week. I really haven’t decided what I’m going to do about Winter– do I buy it or get it from the library? Help me! I’ve got a $5 gift card to Books-A-Million… but I kinda want something completely unfamiliar. Suggestions?
Anyway… The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is a Robin Hood retelling with hints of Swan Lake. I liked it, but it wasn’t my favorite. I adore Robin Hood. A lot.
The thing about Melanie Dickerson’s books is that the characters instantly fall in love. They don’t really admit their feelings until the end, but still. I love her books, but I wish it wasn’t so clear who’s going to fall in love with who. You know what I mean?
I also found this book highly predictable. So all-in-all, not my favorite Melanie Dickerson.
However, I’m very excited about The Silent Songbird, a Little Mermaid retelling, which is being released in November.
