The book that took me back to magic after months of Ruth Rendells. Morgenstern has a gift for luscious description and from the first page manages to make you feel like you’ve entered a different world. The characters are entirely believable and I like the fact that you get to see the progression of the two main ones through the years. The plot includes one of those intense, “bound to be doomed but you never know” love stories which always appeal to my goth-loving side. It’s a bit like Heathcliff & Catherine from Wuthering Heights, with the added benefit of fantasy.
