Never-Contented Things was supposed to be serving me cruel and deliciously evil fairy-goodness. How can you not interpret that given the cover and blurb that tells me it’s unrelentingly cruel?! Yet, what I actually got was a convoluted story about two incestuous foster siblings, in what read like a poorly plotted episode of Riverdale – severely scarce of faeries.  Continue reading “NEVER CONTENDED THINGS BY SARAH PORTER”

Outrun the Wind begin on the premise of a hunt; it is fast paced, intense and is positively exciting. However, it shortly looses this momentum following the first couple of chapters and falls into a sluggish narrative, largely driven by prose and the woes of palace life. After a promising opening scene what follows is a slow paced, unimaginative fantasy novel that is quite frankly boring.

Told in dual perspective we follow Kahina and Atalanta – a huntress of the goddess Artemis and a lost princess respectively.  Kahina is trying to earn back Artemis’ favour by attempting to complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia. It’s here that her fate collides with Atalanta, who is running away from a disastrous quest. As Kahina’s connection with Atalanta deepens she finds herself straying from the rules of being a huntress, by helping her devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage. But when the men responsible for the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.
