My First Fantasy Read
There is of course something missing here. Something that one of the members of my critique group (Mad Scribblers) writes and reads voraciously. FANTASY!
Feeling just a little skeptical, I turned the first page of Juliet Marillier's Heart's Blood and found I couldn't put it down. Rather a dark take on Beauty and the Beast, the story is set in Ireland sometime in the Middle Ages. It had me hooked from the very beginning and never let up until the perfect ending.
So I offer a challenge to all who read this: Try a genre you've never read before. You just might be surprised.
