I read this book for my work as an uncorrected proof I did not like this book It was pretty disappointing and over all just did nothing for me It should really be called Four women walk around calling each other names and complaining about everything This book made me think of when I read old fantasy that just doesn t stand up to the test of time it feels very dated It lacks details that would immerse you in the story it doesn t go far enough with the plot any of the dangers the magic even how the main character is treated by her mother Everything feels glossed over and after about 75 pages I took the hint and started glossing over the book The writing is done in an archaic language that instead of enhancing the story slowed and encumbered it Making it a 150 ish page book a three day slog The book seems of an outline than an actual book as if it s missing a large part with it only being 150 ish pages I think that there is a lot of room for details and character building Honestly the cover is bad also making it look like this was self published and the author couldn t get a real artist Geschichten aus Latexia very dated It lacks details that would immerse you in the story it doesn t go far enough with the plot any of the dangers the magic even how the main character is treated by her mother Everything feels glossed over and after about 75 pages I took the hint and started glossing over the book The writing is done in an archaic language that instead of enhancing the story slowed and encumbered it Making it a 150 ish page book a three day slog The book seems of an outline than an actual book as if it s missing a large part with it only being 150 ish pages I think that there is a lot of room for details and character building Honestly the cover is bad also making it look like this was self published and the author couldn t get a real artist

Tigue and foul weather plague the travelers but they persist and achieve their goal Returning Grayling finds herself reluctant to part with her companions especially Pook At home she’s no longer content to live with her bossy mother who can look after herself just fine and soon sets out on another journey to unfamiliar places possibly to see the young paper maker who warmed her heart. Sometimes I wonder if I loved Catherine Called Birdy too much because almost all of Cushman s books have paled in comparison to that one for me Honestly I wanted to shake many of the characters in this book almost all the time Grayling was too timid too often looking for a way not to lead Pansy was useless and selfish Auld Nancy was sometimes too stubborn Desdemona was too interested in her own welfare In not really enjoying any of the characters it made it hard to like the book overall

    Grayling's Song had such an interesting premise and while I've seen very similar sounding plots in other fantasy novels such as Liesl Po this one seemed to offer a lot magic However I didn't find that it had as much depth and I really didn't care about any of the characters not even Grayling herself because they aren't really well

    This was a wonderfully short and sweet fantasy novel It actually reminded me of Uprooted but for children Grayling's Song fits right in with Cushman's other books A young girl who thinks not very much of herself learns she is much capable than she believes The world is a medieval England but magic exists It's a dense environment but the plot moves right along Grayling's journey never slowing down until it's satisfying conclusion T
