I have thoroughly enjoyed Goblin Wood by Hilari Bell (terrific story telling, fully realized characters, lovely style), and rushed off to the public library to secure another couple of hers. I'm looking forward to The Last Knight, as the premise is great and the blurb is enticing, and I already know I can trust her style. If you write, check out her website for "writer's tips."
I also enjoyed The Lost Flower Children by Janet Taylor Lisle as much as I had hoped and can now continue to another of hers on my bedside table, The Great Dimpole Oak. I enjoy the slower pace of the storytelling, and her ability to establish a very moving backstory and characters in which we fully invest in a slim volume.
Good reads, people!
