Sounds like fantasy to me, pure and simple!

I guess the better question would've been why she was posting it :)

I think it could be classed as historical fantasy. It's a retelling, isn't it? I like retellings. I have the author's 'Mermaid' on my TBR pile.

Yes, please do Tanzanite, it's one of my favourite parts of HFO!

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Last time somebody said that, we ended up dancing around a table with pints, and singing Hobbit drinking songs.

Anyway... please continue. I need this to make my TBR lists. :)

oops - it seems in my brevity (typing on my phone and that damn auto correct is annoying so I tend to keep it short!) I left the wrong impression. I only meant that I wouldn't include stuff like the one in question in the future. I'll admit it was a little out there but I thought a few members at least had mentioned they like those fairy tale re-telling stories and I've included a few that I've run across over the last few years so thought I would include this one. Plus, I gotta admit - I love the cover!!

So, no worries. Apologies for any confusion. :o

;) :)

Trying to type on those phones can sure make comments briefer, can't they? Thankfully I don't have auto correct, but I've had some nasty typos pop up.
