Heart's Blood

Heart's Blood - Juliet Marillier Nice romance fairytale. I'm absolutely partial to stories on the line of the Beauty and the Beast, but this one flows nicely, the characters are very likeable, the setting and atmosphere just right. Anyway, the first part of the book is very soft and captivating; the second half focus on Caitrin who, dint of luck by dint of luck, finds the resolve to take her destiny in her own hands, and act upon it. Yes, of course nothing original here, and surely you can predict how things will unfold...also, the fact that the protagonists love to over-explain is a bit of a downside, because it slows the pace of the narrative towards the climax of the story. Redundancy aside, I looked for an easy, romantic and emotional fairytale, with good narrative and a well-crafted fantasy backdrop: I wasn't disappointed.
