But so far I only said good things about it, so why did I give it 4 stars instead of 5? Well, although it was very interesting to read, I thought that it could have been better. I thought that the characters in times were a little "out of character", getting to conclusions that didn't seem to fit what was portrayed before as what they would think. The whole idea throughout the book that makes you confused about who are the good and evil people accentuated this "out of character" effect.
Anyway, this (mostly subjective) detail did not take out the joy from reading the book. I hope Anne Kelleher continues enriching the fantasy literature for years to come!
The goblins were horrible villains who feasted on humans and sidhe alike. To control them, a silver caul was created with faery magic. The caul protects the realms for many years but a new sidhe queen sits on the throne and she isn't the leader her mother was.
I love books where multiple groups of people come together for a common cause. When the caul goes missing and the goblins once again overrun both worlds, young heroes from the sidhe and mortal worlds step forward to do their parts to stop the savage goblins. To their horror, the goblins are bigger and fiercer than ever before.
I fell in love with the sidhe and was entranced by their beauty. I could see how mortals would be bedazzled by them. I was equally repulsed by the goblins. Kelleher's descriptions and characterization brought her characters to life for me and I was totally immersed in her worlds. I can't wait to read Silver's Lure.
