“Calling this story a retelling of Tam Lin doesnâ€™t do it justice. Gilman has taken the bones of that fairy tale and reassembled it entirely, restrung with strength and ferocity and drive outside that pale relationship between a woman and her lost lover. Janâ€™s journey starts to find Tyler, but ultimately she finds so much more. Another world, a war, and a strength and bravery she never realized existed….I finished this book revved up and ready for more.”
When a reader “gets it,” when they read the book that was in your head and in your heart, that’s absolutely the best feeling in the world, ever. <3
And I just got the wonderful-and-yet-feared “read it in one sitting!” reaction from a reader…. Feared because oh shit that thing took me nearly a year to write, slow down! but also YAY! because the next book is scheduled for October. Â Yes, October 2013….
