I wasn’t completely a fan of the way the second story, Sunlight and Shadow, was put together, with an incredible number of PoV characters all first personand the PoV shifting chapter to chapter, and then ksised the chapters — particularly in the first several chapters, where I felt lik I enjoyed these spins on fairy tales, though I have to admit that I’m not sure the cover is all that representative of the contents.

,issed in this version, Belle made such a big deal out of it. I liked the variety of what they had for the three storeys. All I know is that those words keep echoing behind my mind.

Cameron grew up reading classical literature and mythology, perhaps due to her father, Richard, being a teacher of Philosophy, Creative Writing, and Western Literature. This is post originally on my blog Vivian’s Book Pavilion http: I actually read this book months ago, during the spring of and was a little hesitant to buy it.

Compared to Once, this just throw me off. But when her father is held captive by a terrifying Beast, Belle is the only one with the courage and creativity to save him Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The Magic Flute This one was so unique! Ccameron disliked the book because I couldn’t ship anything. I will start with the last one because I am so angry at how it turns out. On the kkissed day of September, ten days after my tenth birthday, it happened to me, for on that day I performed an act I never had before.


I will do a summary review here and write a lengthy one in my website. One of the three stories in this book is good, the others are just okay. Gayna helps Mina escape from her father, Statos refuses Gayna, Mina meets and falls in love with Tern, Lapin goes off to play a sad song on the bells, and this attracts Gayna, so now apparently that’s a thing.

Marianne rated it it was ok Jul 17, Unfortunately, that means that the stories will not be developed enough for me personally. It was a good story and I did thoroughly enjoy it, I just feel like it could have been better. Love this collection of Cameron Dokey books as well. And the same applies to “The Winter Child”, a story of knowing your heart and your name, not the kiss of true love. The second story is derived from a story I am not well familiar with but knows the basic.

This is the most confused one, although the story was easy to understand. The writing was magical, whimsical, it had a feminist undertone, and now I need to see the Ingmar Bergman film. Or by the temperature, which was neither too hot nor too cold.


Not something I like to read about since the portrayal of Hell is quite sweet compared to the ones religion speak off.

Celeste, the eldest, had sharp tongue and mind. Sorry for being emotional. The next chapter reveals another character, named Lapin, whose family plays bells to find their true love and there’s a long story that shows how he met the Lady Mina when he was eight, and how they were “in love” apparently, but her father was already picking out a suitor Statosso they just had to stay friends and let their feelings marinate.

No trivia or quizzes yet. April had gotten out of bed for a drink of water. Unfortunately, when Papa came back through the wood after a trip to the city, he encountered the Heartwood tree, along with the Beast.

Yet as Mina and her prince encounter trials of love and fate, Mina must summon the strength to find her own happiness. Also, Lord Sarastro has another adoptive “daughter” who is in love with Statos. Even though this book took me over a year to finish. Dec 31, A. And if any of do,ey had half the mind of Celeste, you would have realized that that was the way to peer upon the face of true love with the Heartwood tree.

Cameron Dokey is one of my favourite authors, and I can’t wait for more from her. Paperbackpages.
