Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just reviewed Ellen Renner’s “Castle of Shadows” at SBR

Folks, CASTLE OF SHADOWS is a good, solid YA fantasy-adventure about eleven-year-old Princess Charlotte of Quale (‘cept she’s always called “Charlie”).  Charlie’s mother left her and her father, the King, five years ago, without explaining why.  All Charlie knows is that her mother was a gifted scientist and physicist, and that apparently Charlie’s mother found out something that scared her so much that she burned her notes and then skipped town.

There’s a lot of intrigue here, and some good action-adventure down the line, too.

Here’s a link so you can read it at SBR:
