    Good YA novel--Aimed at teenaged girls

    This is the first Peter S. Beagle book I've read, and I thought it was pretty darn good. It's a young adult fantasy about a young teenaged girl who moves to Dorset with her mother and new stepfather, and learns how to deal with the magical creatures and ghosts that roam the historical area. This teaches her a lesson about who she is and what she wants to be. It was cute and magical. It's most appropriate audience would be teenaged girls (because of the heroine), but I think boys would enjoy it as well.

    Ghost stories and Celtic Myths all rolled in one.

    The most descriptive modern fantasy novel I have ever read! Told in the main character's perspective, you will be exposed to every emotion felt, as well as the usual every day adolescent attitudes. This novel is packed with detailed environments, enabling you to visualize the very setting each character finds him/herself in. If you want a story where you can find ghosts, myths and everything in between, pick up Tamsin right now. You will not be disappointed.

    Exceeded my high expectations

    I've always loved Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn, so I was really hoping that his other books would live up to my expectations, and Tamsin certainly did. It's a bit slow in the beginning, but not badly so, and by the end you'll be so glad you read it. His characters here are just as mesmerizing as in Unicorn, and the story is refreshingly different from anything I've read in a long time. This is not a cookie-cutter fairy tale, but one that captures the reality of our time and the magic of the past all at once, and makes it totally believable. Highly Recommended!!!

    Most Powerful Story

    I was not able to put it down even though I needed it for school. I read it until 2:00am it was a truly outstanding book. I mean it to!

    A Prime exsample of what good writing is all about

    Personaly I think this book is absilutly amazing! Beagle can write!!! Or at least for this book he could. I seriously duebt if i will pick up another of his novels, for i dont read the same genre multipul times by the same writer. Extremly well paced, well tied together. And to top it off selvral extrodenary discriptions with a through and through brilliant style, peppered in interesting charcters. Then there is the plot wich is great, however insificent in the twist and turns department.
