review 1: First off, let me say that Ali Shaw is a brilliantly talented author. He is extremely imaginative and weaves wonderful, fantastic tales. The reason this book did not get five stars is because like some of the other readers, I object to the callous killing of animals. I especially...

review 1: As I picked this up in an Edinburgh Oxfam, I knew I would love this book. I just knew. A fairy-tale style book, with a girl whose feet are turning to glass.I found this book to be beautifully written. I really got an excellent sense of St. Hauda’s Land and of the wintertime. Ther...

review 1: One star for finding a publisher. I got the audio version of this book and it was read well. But after 75 minutes all that had happened was: a woman left her fiance and moved to the town her dead father had a connection to. The people there are wired and kill stray dogs (removal ...

review 1: I stumbled across Ali Shaw's first novel a year or so ago and have been waiting to read his second. I loved both! I need a little bit of magic in my life from time to time and Ali Shaw's novels deliver. As grown up fairy tales there is an innocence about the narrative that is end...

review 1: So very disappointing. 1.5 stars. There was an idea in there somewhere but it died under the weight of the unexplained weird, like why the heck we needed the furry cow bugs. I love fairy tale books, and I had high hopes, which were dashed. Short on plot, characters I didn't get ...

review 1: This book was beautiful but underwhelming. I feel like it would have been more effective as a novella, because the ideas were good but in fleshing them out, Ali Shaw somehow made them seem bland and dry. Long passages of this book made me foot-tappingly impatient, and I am not a ...
