    What a delight this short book is I m a sucker for Tam Lin stories, but this is a completely original take on the tale from the point of view of Tom, a child of the Tribe that lives on the common, elves or fairy folk Strange cold creatures that eat their meat raw and have no ties of kinship and no concept of love or nurturing their young Tom isn t like the other members of the tribe, he s clumsy and heavy and he s losing his hearing and he doesn t see as well as he used to Driven out by fear What a delight this short book is I m a sucker for Tam Lin stories, but this is a completely original take on the tale from the point of view of Tom, a child of the Tribe that lives on the common, elves or fairy folk Strange cold creatures that eat their meat raw and have no ties of kinship and no concept of love or nurturing their young Tom isn t like the other members of the tribe, he s clumsy and heavy and he s losing his hearing and he doesn t see as well as he used to Driven out by fear Tom stumbles into the demon city where hot, smelly, lumpen demons humans enslave each other with emotional bonds as real as choking vines This is a lyrical tale, bittersweet and beautifully told, of what happens to Tom amongst the demons

    One of the darkest, most beautiful books I ve ever read This story goes places that few adult books dare, mixing in mythical and fantastical tropes with ease and all of it in sparse, vivid prose Love it.

    I must say that this book was very clever in that I had no idea about the demons at all Until it was revealed of course I don t really want to give anything away but it was interesting to see Tom s perception of humans which are maybe the thoughts of Sally Prue and the message she was trying to show It makes you think how we come across to others and how we treat the world, others and wildlife.Apart from that, I did find most of the plot quite predictable although I think it would keep a youn I must say that this book was very clever in that I had no idea about the demons at all Until it was revealed of course I don t really want to give anything away but it was interesting to see Tom s perception of humans which are maybe the thoughts of Sally Prue and the message she was trying to show It makes you think how we come across to others and how we treat the world, others and wildlife.Apart from that, I did find most of the plot quite predictable although I think it would keep a younger audience guessing To me the characters were quirky and individual, mostly likeable too, even the cruel ones.It was very short, very easy to read but interesting I think the ending felt very rushed and was a little confusing I didn t find it entirely clear what happened I should probably read it again and try and make some sense of it I was probably rushing a little.The book reminded me a little of Skellig by David Almond, so to all fans of that book, you should give this one a try too.I would recommend this book to a slightly older audience between the ages of 11 14

    Okay, not really sure why I decided to borrow this from the library, given how much I disliked the Tribe in Ice Maiden I managed to read about 20 pages before just deciding, no, this is not going to happen Skipped forward a bit but still couldn t get into it I just found it uncomfortable and not something I wanted to read shrug Okay, not really sure why I decided to borrow this from the library, given how much I disliked the Tribe in Ice Maiden I managed to read about 20 pages before just deciding, no, this is not going to happen Skipped forward a bit but still couldn t get into it I just found it uncomfortable and not something I wanted to read shrug

    Forreviews, check out my blog Craft CycleOverall, a good read I liked the vague start The reader has no idea what is going on and this really intrigued me.This is a middle grade book, so it is relatively simple As an adult, I was able to figure out all of the twists fairly quickly, but I think the pacing was just right for young readers The story drags a little bit in the middle, but it is still entertaining Great descriptions I thought it was a very unique and creative story I rea Forreviews, check out my blog Craft CycleOverall, a good read I liked the vague start The reader has no idea what is going on and this really intrigued me.This is a middle grade book, so it is relatively simple As an adult, I was able to figure out all of the twists fairly quickly, but I think the pacing was just right for young readers The story drags a little bit in the middle, but it is still entertaining Great descriptions I thought it was a very unique and creative story I really liked the idea of the vines between people Interesting book
