This is an interesting Arthurian dark fantasy tale that explores the relationship between Arthur and Morgan. Told from Morgan’s point of view, the reader is treated to a very different perception of Arthur than that told by the more popular legends.
The opening paragraph is stunning, and most of the writing is quite good, so the prescence of some fairly basic errors was disappointing. A careful proofreading and edit would make a significant difference to the finished quality of the story.
Overall, the story is quite enjoyable.
‘Snowberry Blossom’ is a short story companion to the ‘Keepers of the Wellsprings’ series of fantasy novels by Missy Sheldrake. It fits into the chronology of the narrative after ‘The Call Of Sunteri”, the second novel in the series, but works perfectly as a stand-alone story that introduces the characters and the kingdom in which they live.
Set on Midwinter’s Eve, it’s a heartwarming story of love, loyalty and teamwork that will entice the reader to read the rest of this excellent series.
‘Snowberry Blossom’ has been awarded a Gold Acorn for absolutely magical storytelling.
