She long relished creating original narratives, and by age 6 was telling herself stories at night to help herself fall asleep. At age 16, she met U.

That was the case with Wulfgar in this meandering mess of a medieval. Poor Wulfie Worse heroes like rape-ape Garth McClellan Savage Surrender got a rollicking joyride that never let up on the thrills and derring-do, and the cipher Giles St. Talvert The Last Carnival is in a romance so well-executed with nary a word wasted that it continues to Ever read a book where you wished you could rescue a character and give them the story that their awesomeness deserves?
Talvert The Last Carnival is in a romance so well-executed with nary a word wasted that it continues to blow my mind. Apart from an addiction to word count and a fear of plot, that is.
The book started out well and I was getting good vibes from it. KEW obviously liked writing about Aislinn smiling and giggling and being all giddy and winsome because she would have the broad flipflop in her moods all the time. Why are you happy to see him??? But Wulfie was worth the extra day or two it took me to skim through this one. If there had been less descriptive crap and stuck-in-neutral narrative, I might have been compelled to gobble up every scene he was in and read it more closely.
But both faults dragged the whole book down, Wulfie included. The poor guy did the best he could with what he was given. Despite being yummily alpha, he was unable to reach in through the window and shift the car into gear because Woodiwiss the Puppet Master was all too happy to bounce in her seat and grin at the unmoving scenery.
So 2 stars. But Wulfie put up with a lot from both heroine and author, so I give him an extra star.
