Anmeldelser

(Suggested to me as part of the June challenge to read/review a book chosen by someone else in the Tamora Pierce fangroup on FB.)

This was a super cute read! I quickly got caught up in the drama and grew quite fond of Jessie even faster. I like that she's a dreamy girl who sits in the 'secret garden' in her grandmother's garden and loves the tales of fairies but also has a definitive practical streak - as does Marigold, at least, of those she meets through the hedge. (One that definitely comes in handy when the Fairy Realm is in trouble and has accidentally nabbed The Wrong Jessica!)

Jessica's mother provides a bit of a steady link to the real world but isn't unlikable for all that she thinks her mother and daughter both have their heads in the clouds (and possibly not the clouds of this world), which I appreciated. It's all too easy to have that grounded character be another type of antagonist and it's nice to have something different. Jessie's similarly very practical grandfather, even though only shown in memory after his death, turned out to be even more awesome than I expected and I kind of want to see his (and the original Jessica's) story as well, I admit.

I also quite liked the matter-of-fact way Jessie introduced Flynn, her grandmother's cat, as standing guard over her, and accepted him as slightly-more-than-mundane without pause for consideration.

While I could see a lot of the storyline coming (not unexpected given both the intended audience - it's a simple story, but a good one - and the number of fantasy and/or fairy world stories I've read) there were still the occasional bits that surprised me. The black and white illustrations accompanying each chapter were lovely, as well!

As a big fan of the series (especially the dragons ) I thought it was so cool being able to visualize the dragons and try and draw them. They were semi difficult but well detailed and learning how they did it just added another level for me. If you know some one who is a fan it makes a lovely companion to all 3 series as all the weird creatures on the covers and unseen are inside.

Added some good lore expansion to the series (including a set up to the dragons for Deltora dragons). I do recommend tales of Deltora if you want a lil more quest and story but i did enjoy learning of the landscapes as its briefly mentioned in other books. Still a great addition to the collection

I also accidently read this series first and it does have spoilers for quest and shadowlands. That said this set of 4 is the best example of everything i loved in the first 2 book series. Puzzles , a perilous quest, and lore beyond lore. (and maybe a few dragons ;D). That said an amazing series and I still read it when I need a good adventure.
