An interesting exploration of family relations and how we identify ourselves. Through Neil Gaiman's unique perspectives, we see the world as it might be, with the magic and mundane, ordinary and extraordinary meshed together in a perfectly believable fiction.

Exile's Valor is a continuation of the tale begun in Exile's Honor: Alberich has found his niche at the Collegium as Weaponsmaster and Selenay is trying to fit into hers as the new Queen of Valdemar. The Council is busily trying to push Selenay into a "suitable" marriage, thinking her too young an inexperienced to rule alone, but she's not having any of it, and Talamir is increasingly withdrawn after the loss of his Companion Taver. Without a Queen's Own to rely on, and feeling isolated from the Herald's Circle, can Selenay hold the throne with just the support of her loyal Champion Alberich?

What an incredible writer! These stories though written a while back, are timeless- real edge of the seat at times and quite often VERY difficult to put down. I read them as a teen and now have my daughters quite addicted to her writing as well.

Levine has done it again: a Tale of Two Castles is a fun, fresh spin on the fairy tale world. Our heroine, Elodie, is new to Two Castles, a city with a dragon detective named Meenore, the ogre Count Ninth Um, a greedy king and many clever cats. Elodie soon lands in the midst of a mystery; will she puzzle out the answer in time?
Read to find out!
