A Cute Fantasy/Fairy Tale What I Loved: This story is adorable
A Cute Fantasy/Fairy Tale
What I Loved:
This story is adorable! I do have to say that it seemed pretty stereotypical of the fairy-tale genre, and yet so original at the same time. What I mean to say is that in partial, it was a stereotypical fairy tale. If you just judge the first six chapters or whatever, very stereotypical. But the true magic happens when you view the story as a whole. Together, it's not stereotypical at all, and it's really quite a lovely story.
I absolutely adored Tangi, as well as Prince Daryle. Tangi starts out very vulnerable and quiet, doing whatever she can to not be noticed and then caving to the cruel way she is treated, but in the end Tangi is a confident young woman who really takes her own stand. Prince Daryle is sweet, and very caring toward Tangi. In fact, most of the Rosviens are absolutely delightful characters.
Also, it has to be said, for as stereotypically fairy-taleish as the plot tended to be, the first line is thankfully not "Long ago in a land far, far away" nor is the ending "And they lived happily ever after."
What I Didn't Like:
The beginning was just a little too slow for me. Once the plot got moving, it had a really nice pace, but the beginning seemed to drag on for a while.
(5 of 5 Stars)
Tangi's Teardrops has been sitting on my to-be-read list for a while, and I really wish I'd gotten to it sooner. The story, as noted above, is quick-paced and a very fun and easy read. In my other sections I said that it was very much like a fairy tale, and I think that's what makes it so easy to read. Tangi isn't Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, or Snow White, and yet you can see echoes of their stories in her own- specifically Cinderella. Despite similarities, Liz carves Tangi's story into something totally unique and entertaining, creating a story that leaves the reader feeling happy and content.
