Mercedes Lackey is one of my all-time favorite authors. She is incredibly prolific and has a fantastic gift for storytelling. From a High Tower is the latest in Ms. Lackey’s Elemental Masters series.  From a High Tower is her twist on the Rapunzel tale and sets it in the world of her Elemental Masters. We also see quite a bit of Rosamund from Blood Red (Elemental Masters #10). These books stand alone. Where the earlier books in this series had a bit of romance in them it is rather lacking in this book. There is some flirting and a hint of perhaps a future but if you are reading this for romance. Don’t. If you are reading this for a damn good story by all means you won’t be disappointed. Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher. Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! NOT! This book was a riff on the classic fairy tale, but it is also original and unexpected. Giselle was taken from her original family, in exchange for their survival in tough times in late 19th century Germany by Mother and raised in the tower of an old former abbey. From there the story diverges and becomes an interesting mix of magic and old west traveling show, like Wild Bill Cody's, with wonderful twists and turns. In this story Mother was good and taught Giselle things her original family never could have. The handsome young man who wanted to get into her tower turns out to be a villain. The good guys are Giselle's friends in the Wild West Show, some of whom also have magic!! I really enjoyed the story and would recommend it for young adults on up!!

Really like this one. Giselle has some real character growth and all the little vignettes that seem disconnected lead to something at the end. Hope to see more of Rosa in future books.

The latest installment in her Elemetal Masters story. This one is completely in Bavaria and the Zchwarzwald. A wonderfull retelling of the trabditional Rapunzel folktale.

Fun story with great characters. Not the most exciting of her books, but still a good read.

I normally love her books.  This one I cannot say I liked. Nothing happened. She grew up. She braided and cut her hair.  Again and again.  That's it it until the last 60 pages or so then a very quick and unsatisfying end battle; end credits.
