So today as a guest, I’m taking over Duncan’s blog. I love books and I love talking about books and with the permission of Slice of Scifi, I am re-publishing my review of Kat Howard’s sublime work of fiction, “Roses and Rot.”
I raved about this on Slice of Scifi but I will say it again here, this is a lovely, dark fairy tale using familiar concepts and reworking them in new ways. If you get the chance to read it, if you like fairy tales, do and then put a review up on Amazon, because authors need reviews.
I highly recommend this book. And right now, I would read another from this author, because she has done the impossible, she has made me love her work and want to add it to my pick up anytime list and like Neil Gaiman before her, she weaves fairy tales into the real world in a way I have seldom seen done as well. I think you will find her work very difficult to put down once you start reading. If you like dark fairy tales or stories of empowered women, this book is for you.
