    I don t like that when you hover over three stars on Goodreads it says liked it I didn t like this book, but there was nothing glaringly wrong with it I just didn t like parts of the narrative.For some reason, the whole Cerilla has to marry a man, consummate the marriage, and then watch him be ritually sacrificed plot appealed to me That part was fine as expected, Cerilla and Arlen escape and make their way to a new lifebut then things happen that make their new life less than happy, including the spirit of Arlen s childhood friend possessing their baby, which I just found creepy Other things happen, Cerilla must face her evil father who forced her to marry Arlen in the first place, a few other subplots resolve, and the book ends I liked that the book was short and I didn t need to invest too much time into it.

    Absolutely amazing mythological fantasy To tell the plot would be to tell too much, but it is a retelling of the myth of Creithylad Cordelia , aka the story of the Summer King and the Winter King, a very ancient dramatic enactment of the cycle of the seasons I will mention one highlight a very creepy possession by a ghost

    For some reason, I became obsessed with this book Looking back on it, I don t know why There seems to have been a lot of needless suffering and misunderstandinghm, maybe my adolescent self could relate.

    I didn t finish this, but it s not really fair to call it a two star book During my Arthurian phase, I would have liked it, although I think the possessed baby might have still freaked me out.
