Today I’m sharing a review instead of the next episode in Smallest Moments because the last few weeks have been crazy and I haven’t finished writing it. *grimaces* Roquian and Matthias are being difficult. xD
Also, I’m going to be working at a Camp for these next two weeks starting tomorrow. So don’t expect posts for the next couple Saturdays. I’m trying to get caught up on all my social media so that way I don’t have a big mess to clean up when I come back. lol
As I promised Smallest Moments isn’t finished yet … it’s still To Be Continued . . . 😉
1 Billion/5 Stars ~
*collapses in a puddle of feels*
My expectations have been blown out the window. I can’t even right now.
😍 THIS. THIS IS WHAT A MASTERPIECE IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE. 😍 Reading this book brings to mind all the great authors in history. This story–this author captures those same magnificent feelings and *my heart* ….
(I’m a really big fan of H.S.J. Williams …. xD)
Setting – A world of Fey …. The Fair and the Foul. Beautiful forests …. and dark landscapes. Depressing lakes and slimy waters. Bitter mountains, wild parties, and fierce battles.
Plot – Expect the unexpected. I’ve read a lot of fantasy in my short time on earth. I can predict so many plot twists (cuz cliche) that’s it’s not funny anymore. But this book. THIS BOOK was a rollercoaster of emotions and surprises. (Don’t get me wrong … every book has cliches …. but this. Miss Williams told it all a new way. She changed its glamour. 😍)
Message: Forgiveness. (*Is about to squeal my head off * THISSSSSSSSSS)
Description – Gahhhhh. I can’t even. The word pictures, the stunning beauty of this world, the allegories. *sends 1 billion hearts and stars to H.S.J. Williams* Everything was brilliant and easy to picture. It played out like a movie with hardly a bump.
Romance – So. Cute. I mean, this is a gender swapped fairytale retelling, so you just KNOW it’s going to be CUTE. But put that with H.S.J. William’s author voice and you get (KA-BOOM) the most epic fairytale retelling of all time. It was clean and beautiful and pure and refreshing. No sickening drama.
Content – So it’s violent. . . . very violent? But William’s tells it with such grace that even though the scene is painful you know everything is going to be okay. Very few violent scenes. Minor kiss and touch. Dark spell and a Lord of the Dead (if that sort of thing is disturbing to you). Really clean.
Characters – *flails collapses in another puddle of feels* They were so amazing. I don’t know how it’s possible to love fake people so much….. I could just fEeL everything. The hurt, the betrayal, the fear, the love, the kindness, Etc. And the dialogue was epic.
Keeva – The Huntress. The girl. Lost in the dark. She doesn’t realize all she wants is a friend. All she wants is someone to love her and be kind to her. But she’s strong. She tough. She’s survived horrors beyond imagining. So she can survive without a friend too, right?
Idris – The Prince. The boy. Hiding from his people. The people he’s supposed to save. The people he can no longer see. He doesn’t realize his presence is all they need. His voice is what they long for. His smile is what they dream about. But he’s waited this long . . . and it might be too late.
Overall – This glorious bundle of High Fantasy/Clean Romance is beyond words. Read it.
*eyes you suspiciously*
Beware the sidhe’s wrath.
The Fair and Foul courts of the fey folk have long yearned for one to bring them together in peace, but hopes are dashed when the fairest prince and the prophecy concerning him are laid to ruin. Burdened with shame and sorrow, the prince flees to the cold mountains far above the forests and lochs with nothing but animals and goblins for company.
When a human huntress stumbles upon him in her search for a legendary predator, their fates are intertwined. But she hides deadly secrets, and if he dares to trust her, he may risk the doom of both courts to an ancient evil…
From the beginning, H. S. J. Williams has loved stories and all the forms they take. Whether with word, art, or costume, she has always been fascinated with the magic of imagination.
She lives in a real fantastical kingdom, the beautiful Pacific Northwest, with her very own array of animal friends and royally loving family. Williams taught Fantasy Illustration at MSOA. She may also be a part-time elf.
Well. I think that’s a wrap. Thanks for checking out my review! I highly recommend!
Stay Safe! 😉
