    Lackey s gotten fairly formulaic at this point, especially with her retellings of fairy tales in Victorian settings But that s not necessarily a terrible thing While there s nothing here that will surprise you, for those who like her warm, slightly angsty characters and well earned happily ever afters, this is as familiar and comforting as a cup of cocoa.Mari is pleasant enough, and has enough backbone to get a few good jabs in Meanwhile, it s nice to see Sarah and Nan grown up and on their o Lackey s gotten fairly formulaic at this point, especially with her retellings of fairy tales in Victorian settings But that s not necessarily a terrible thing While there s nothing here that will surprise you, for those who like her warm, slightly angsty characters and well earned happily ever afters, this is as familiar and comforting as a cup of cocoa.Mari is pleasant enough, and has enough backbone ...

    Not one of her best I usually really like this series, but the dramatic tension wasn t there this time The two villans come across as petulant little boys They can cause a great deal of trouble, but they hardly seem to know why they re doing it The first 75% of the book is full of daily life Another reviewer her compared it to Little Women, which I think is absolutely fair It s Little Women with magic, which is neat, just not what I thought I was getting So, I m not sorry I read it, but Not one of her best I usually really like this series, but the dramatic tension wasn t there this time The two villans come across as petulant little boys They can cause a great deal of trouble, but they hardly seem to know why they re doing it The first 75% of the book is full of daily life Another reviewer her compared it to Little Women, which I think is absolutely fair It s Little Women with...

    I think this may well become my favourite of the Elemental Masters series.Unlike most of the other books in the series, in this the conflicts are relatively small, domestic affairs The bad guys have mildly sensible reasons for their behaviour, and are not yethurt people for power types, which is a great relief.It s also something of a sequel to The Wizard of London , and it s nice to meet the grown up Sarah and Nan.Then there s the domestic minutiae that the author does so well, and I think this may well become my favourite of the Elemental Masters series.Unlike most of the other books in the series, in this the conflicts are relatively small, domestic affairs The bad guys have mildly sensible reasons for their behaviour, and are not yethurt people for power types, which is a great relief.It s als...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I am so disappointed.The story of Mari, destined to be wife to a selch and a water master in her own right, had potential And honestly, I have loved the Elemental Masters series, especially since I find that they re based on faerie tales utterly charming.However, this book has been infuriating.Lackey has been especially formulaic and feel good with this book Gone is even the slightest hint of darkness I m...

    Three stars because I enjoyed it, if I was doing a literary critique it would have got two.I liked the main character Mari and her father, I liked the fact it was set in Wales I suspect that a lot of research went into this book and I think a fair bit of the detail of the life of a fisherman in a small Welsh Fishing town was true it was certainly very interesting as were the train trips around Britain.I am fond of the elemental s...

    This book could have greatly benefited from an editor, and I m surprised to find myself saying that given how long Mercedes Lackey has been a big name in the fantasy genre At some points she had characters discussing knowledge that they couldn t possibly know, and she also gave the same information to the reader several times as though she had forgotten what she had written a few chapters ago I generally don t make a big point of noticing or commenting on the crafting of a story, but in this c This book could have greatly benefited from an editor, and I m surprised to find myself saying that given how long Mercedes Lackey has been a big name in the fantasy genre At some points she had characters discussing knowledge that they couldn t possibly know, and she also gave the same information to the reader several times as though she had forgotten what she had written a few chapters ago I generally don t make a big po...

    Too much rehashing of past scenes between Nan and Sarah from The Wizard of London The villain s felt half baked and other parts of the story felt rushed, but if you re looking for a quick read this book is alright.
