The biggest problem is how little interaction Aisling and Kaisa have for the vast majority of the story. I just didn’t feel much in the way of chemistry between them until near the end. Their budding friendship as the Huntress taught Ash to ride was never elaborated upon - it just sort of happened. The only time they clicked as a couple for me was at the ball, when Kaisa saw Aisling in her enchanted finery for the first time and returned her love at last. It was only at that point that the book had me well and truly enthralled. The ending is beyond worth it. The poetry, the delicateness of the dance, the sense of unstoppable doom as Ash realizes what it is that she’s traded away - and the gorgeous solution to a problem which seemed intractable. If the entire book were like the final third, there would be no problem.
It’s definitely a solid first novel and worth reading, if you can make it through the sluggish beginning. My interest is piqued enough to pick up “Huntress” at some point in the near future. I can just barely see the shadow of greatness in the author - and know that she has it in her to do better in the future.
the actual novel was decent. mainly, it left me wanting more. I wanted more details, more insight on the nature of the relationship aisling had with Clara, more details of aisling and kaisa falling in love, more about kaisa's life as the Kings huntress, more about the fairy world and sidhean, more about the nature of magic in humans, more about aisling's mother, etc. in the end, it's very plot driven and the characters are left feeling a little simple
I enjoyed it tho. I'm going to give huntress a shot
The huntress has this potential to be a badass, sexy character, and never really develops into more than this cold body, admiring from afar. I never really warmed up to the character beyond Ash's draw to her.
Lo creates a really unique, interesting world, and really flourishes when she tackles the fairy world and all its complexities and relations to the human world, and then encompassing all that in a story structured so classically as a fairy tale itself... It's impressive.
The dialogue in the story was my only personal issue with the book. It is not contemporary or natural, and comes across somewhat jilted. It makes it harder to invest in conversations that are supposed to be emotionally fraught or intense. In retrospect, however, it is almost as though she was writing in the structure of some of the oldest fairy tales, really completing and bringing full circle the whole idea of the story, and in that way, I applaud her.
I came for the lesbian relationship, and stayed for the unique world that the author created. The Woods themselves are enchanting in their detail, and the fairies are so eerie and real you can almost reach out and touch them.
There was little to no interaction between Ash and the huntress.
The book dragged on forever.
