A delightfully bittersweet tale of magicians, sea dragons, old and new love, lost princes and, above all, periwinkles.
It's my first Patricia A. McKillip. I searched all over for fantasy books that might inspire me now that NaNoWriMo is just around the corner and I've decided to dabble in a fantasy novel that has been with me since the 9th grade. Crazy, I know.
Ms. McKillip has such a talent with prose. Her descriptions were beautifully vivid and, while I didn't really connect with the heartache in the book, I did enjoy the cast of characters very much. Except the people at the inn. Those were incredibly annoying.
