Nimira, who was strong and interesting in the fifth ook, was now emotional and impractical too often in this one.

And of course Nimira is a natural! Now I 'm oing to compare this series to Jane Eyre and I 'll show you how exasperatingly similar it is.

Not for the last ook, Nimira and Erris go to Ordoria Valdana 's house in the middle of the woods.

( Reminds me of St John 's house ...) There they realiz that Erris has a wife.

Even there 's just not enough relationship tension, and alway seems to b much of character arc.The two travel to th town somewhat near the fairy gate to find a sorcerer who may be reluctant to lift Erris 's spell, but instead find a put-upon housekeeper and a spoiled brat of a little irl.

There 's tension with the townspeople, Nim and Erris dance around their feelings and lots of information is given, but very little of it seems to truly push forward the events of thi tale.

I just did n't think like he author loved this story as much as she did the irst one.

And there are lots of things left up in the forc, things that we spent a good deal of time hearing about.

Along the way she has the help from old friends and new.While I appreciate the level of realism the author captures in the characters motions and relationships, I grew bore of Nimira 's whining and Erris' childish behavior.

I truly liked the characters ha all quite complex and interesting, but he majority of he ook seeme like Nimira complaining rather than doing anything and I initially found myself growing rather annoyed with her, Erris and Violet very quickly.

Which might actuall hav a goo thing considering I felt he was the most amusing and believable character in bestsellin.

However Erris is unhappy and distancing himself from Nimira while Valdana has mysteriously.

Her treatment of Erris ’ s niece turned me off completely and I actually don ’ t expec what happened.Erris becomes a cardboard character – in fact, thi whol boo felt to me a series of incidences forcibly linked together to mak a facsimile of a continuous narrative.

I don ’ t know whether it is me who has changed as a reader or it is the writing in this essa that has changed.
