The Hidden Sun book review by Dawn Vanniman

The first stop on the blog tour is a review by Dawn Vanniman from her blog Absolute Forest of Words.

She wrote:

"THE HIDDEN SUN is a wonderfully crafted fairytale. There's a Princess, forbidden love, an evil overlord and a happy ending. What more could you ask for?

The plot moves along quickly and has great twists and turns. I was a little worried that it would be high fantasy at first, but it wasn't at all. It was a lovely story and one that I could easily imagine the author telling his four daughters.

The characters were well-written with their own voices. A few of the names were groan-worthy, but cute, nonetheless. Ofcourse in most fairytales the names mean something and they help the story along, the same is true here.

The plot revolves around the Book of Law and how it is interpreted, which was definitely interesting. It makes you think of our Constitution and how different groups use it to prove what they want proved.

All in all, a great book and I highly recommend it!"

I got a kick out of the comment about some of the names being "groan-worthy". But heck, if there can be a Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride, then I think it's ok to have a character named Sunshine. *winks*

Thank you Dawn for your honest review!
