|"What would you do if your lover since a thousand years back in time reappeared after two years apart as a famous movie star, and you couldn't get to him?"-excerpt from blurb|
Okay so I just had to make a post so I could blab about this one. The other night I got in the mood to read something light but modern, your classic subscription for a YA novel. I'd picked up Saga Berg's novella, "Nordic Fairies" a week or so ago and had been meaning to read it.
First of all I was shocked it was a novella. I think I was expecting something more involved or longer. Obviously someone didn't read the full description carefully enough upon purchasing...ahem...
Well it may have only been a short novella but it was certainly more than involved!
Svala, the main light fairy, is one of the most interesting heroines I've read lately. Hers and Viggo's story is so tragic and addictive I sincerely hope there are at least a dozen of these short stories. Viggo is frigging gorgeous of course.
Even though this is technically YA it feels much more adult. I love the concept the author has introduced here and don't know if she based it more heavily on the Nordic tales or invented it. Either way Saga Berg is now one of my new favs! Makes me wish I was Swedish!
Check out Saga's website. Clearly here is a chick who knows what she's doing and how to do it well! REALLY COOL SWEDISH AUTHORESS
