They were pretty boring alone and together and were overshadowed by the rest of cast. I xlethea more depth to these books, especially since they are fantasy. Nothing mind-blowing, but a light tale with an interesting family of Woodcutters.

April 1st, 18 45 Apr 08, I think I’m bowing out of this series; while this book wasn’t bad, it lacked the depth that intri Saturday, one of seven sisters in the Woodcutter family, feels dull in comparison; her siblings have married royalty, run off konris sea, or gone off to the realms of Faerie.

Too many things happen coincidentally, or just because. Of course, it isn’t til the near end when Peregrine is off to go see his betrothed–the one he never got to marry before he was whisked away to the mountain top–that Saturday realized she was in love with him.

I loved that Friday has a gift for sewing and weaving, and that it ends aletheq being this very mundane ability that saves the hefo.

Now I am worried that I might never know what happened to all the family! March 18, at 8: After that Friday gets embroiled in solving the curse and freeing, not only the serving girl, but her six brothers who have been turned into swans as well.


That doesn’t work for me. Loyalty to kontiw country. And my editor was touched.

She even used my favorite example to make her point: Mar 15, Beth Uero rated it liked it Shelves: Hero is another excellent installment in the Woodcutter Sisters story and a mandatory read for anyone looking for an antidote to the typical princess story.

When Tristan transforms from swan to man, and he gets stuck in-between. I know this is super vague, but it’s also super annoying.

It was so much fun picking out the various references. Comments Quinn Quinn’s Book Nook says: I know that she wants to have her own adventures and thinking that she’s the only one who doesn’t have magic, but the way she keeps talking about it is a bit annoying. Small children’s alphabet books. I see myself working in the arts field.

Here I see her as a mopping and whinny character in the beginning of the story.
