5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MORE PLEASE, 16 Aug. 2013
This review is from: For Such a Time as This (Tales of Ethanar Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.

A thoroughly enjoyable story, although again I would like to have read more.
This story gives a bit of background to "Innocent Hearts" and I really fell in love with Ishtar and Malden!!!
I loved following Ishtar's tale on her preparation for becoming a bride to the King.

This is the 5th book that I have read by this author and she always leaves wanting to read more by her!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story, 23 July 2013
This review is from: For Such a Time as This (Tales of Ethanar Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
"For such a Time as This" by Jess Mountifield is a beautifully told story, somewhere between fairy tale and fantasy. Young slave Ishtar, who is also secretly an elf, works in the kitchen of the Palace of human King Andrew. Ishtar is chosen for the harem and possibly even as the new bride for the King. The book tells about the customs at the court and the necessary obedience and trust in her superiors there, the world in the kitchen and her training for other tasks.
When conflict between her duties arises Ishtar needs to put her faith in her God and her King.
This is a wonderful tale about faith and trust, maybe not in the most feminist of approaches, but it still depicts a woman who has strong ideas of her own.
Told at an even pace this makes for some charming entertainment and reads like a fairy tale for adults. Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly captivating, 6 July 2013
This review is from: For Such a Time as This (Tales of Ethanar Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
When I was first asked to read and review this I didn't really know what to expect. Was it fantasy, romance ? It's just a darn good story that contains both of those themes and suitable for young and old.
The main character is a young woman called Ishtar who is a slave working in a Kings kitchen and unknown to all but one is an elf. She's a very likeable character who exhibits nothing but kindness to all those around her. She is a joy to read about and such a strong hardworking heroine that the reader truly wants her to find happiness as she deserves it!
Although initially we find her working in the royal kitchens her journey has only just begun .
I loved this book! It's not very long so more of a novella really but manages to capture the readers imagination very quickly. As it is a work of fantasy there are so many possible outcomes and the author managed to pull off a surprise ending.Romantic at times but not hot and heavy so suitable for all ages.i would certainly read more from this talented author
I received a copy of this free in return for an honest review
I am more than happy to rate this 5
