ONIX annotations:From USA Today bestselling author T. Kingfisher comes A Sorceress Comes to Call-a dark retelling of the Brothers Grimm's "The Goose Girl," rife with secrets, murder, and forbidden magic.Cordelia knows her mother is . . . unusual. Their house doesn't have any doors between rooms-there are no secrets in this house-and her mother doesn't allow Cordelia to have a single friend. Unless you count Falada, her mother's beautiful white horse. The only time Cordelia feels truly free is on her daily rides with him.But more than simple eccentricity sets her mother apart. Other mothers don't force their daughters to be silent and motionless for hours, sometimes days, on end. Other mothers aren't sorcerers.After a suspicious death in their small town, Cordelia's mother insists they leave in the middle of the night, riding away together on Falada's sturdy back, leaving behind all Cordelia has ever known. They arrive at the remote country manor of a wealthy older man, the Squire, and his unwed sister, Hester. Cordelia's mother intends to lure the Squire into marriage, and Cordelia knows this can only be bad news for the bumbling gentleman and his kind, intelligent sister.And indeed Hester sees the way Cordelia shrinks away from her mother. How the young girl sits eerily still at dinner every night. Hester knows that to save her brother from bewitchment and to rescue the terrified Cordelia, she will have to face down a wicked witch of the worst kind."Kingfisher never fails to dazzle."-Peter S. Beagle, Hugo-, Nebula-, and Locus-Award winning author of The Last Unicorn"Kingfisher is an inventive fantasy powerhouse."-BookPage.… (mere)

Well, this one will stick with me for a long time. It's very... Kingfisher. Horrifying in a true-to-fairytale trope sort of way. Hilarious -- I mean, laugh out loud funny in places. But there's no part as funny as reading the acknowledgements and seeing her characterize this book as a regency romance -- because, yes? I guess that's going on, too? But when the horse is named Falada, I think we all know what's going to happen, and as a romance reader, I really didn't feel like that was the forward note. Regardless. It's pretty damn disturbing, but I enjoyed it very much. And I don't know how you write characters that get under my skin and become so beloved to me so quickly, but it was worth it.

A gripping dark, fairy-tale-like fantasy that borrows a few elements from "The Goose Girl." Compelling characters, a truly evil sorceress, and a great deal of danger.

Highly recommended. ( )
