A Fairy Tale

Rate this:
A wicked fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat. Includes Ron's own whimsical illustrations.

Deryn Hedlight was not having a very good day and it was about to get much worse. He'd read stories of witches as a boy, but never believed for a second they were true. That is, until an unfortunate hunting accident turns his world upside down. What seemed like an honest mistake leads to an altogether unexpected transformation. But poor Deryn wasn't the only wronged character tied up in these gloomy circumstances and sinister forces.

Deer Life tells the story of a kind-hearted boy from Hinthoven and his mother_s undying love. Mostly though, it's all about patience, friendship, and heroism where you least expect it.

I found sometimes the narrative style drew attention away from the story and characters.

I read this about 1 week after finishing reading The Hobbit - so tough act to follow... I would Ron's songwriting is on par with Tolkien's story telling, and Ron's story telling is on par with Tolkien's songwriting. Not a bad place to start.
