Heart's Blood

Heart's Blood - Juliet Marillier I can always tell if I love a book when I find it extremely hard to put down. It was exactly this way with Heart's Blood.
From the moment I picked it up, I didn't want to put it down. I wanted to race through it to get to the end, but I also wish it never had to finish.
The characters were written with such heart, I felt as if I was in their world, right beside them.
I loved the subtle hints of Beauty and the Beast, especially since it is one of my favourite and most treasured fairy tales.
One of the aspects of this book which I loved most was Anluan. I loved his insecurity, and his vulnerability; his strong will, and his bravery. It is no wonder that Caitrin fell in love with him, really.
Another brilliant book that I adore by Juliet.
Definitely one of my favourites.
