Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
The rue is a mysterious and rare being who is rarely seen, and Janna is amazed when one arrives at the inn where she works, looking for a room. The next morning, her life has changed, and she is left wondering whether she will ever see him again, but only time and the rue stone know the answer to that question.
This is a fairytale-like fantasy novella with a new-to-me being, the Rue. This is the story of Janna, who lives and works in a local Inn, her family, their legends and beliefs. It is a short story and quick read. I liked how the community and setting are portrayed, together with the characters in the Inn. There are other fantasy elements in the world building and I hope it will be developed further in future stories. I daren’t say more or I’ll reveal too much of the plot – you need to read it for yourself to find out what happens!
Thank you to the publisher for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
Author Bio –
Having written all of my life, I decided to self-publish my writing when I turned 50. I have published four books since then. Two are collections of short stories; Dark & Fluffy; Dark & Fluffy II and 500 Words, which is flash fiction. My latest book The Rue Stone is a fantasy novella.
My passion is medieval fiction, and I am working on my first novel The Little Servant – The Wait’s Son, set in the 12th century, in Lincoln, where I live.
All four books are available on Amazon.
