Strands of Sunlight based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Almost as amazing as the first book in the series. This one brings back the magic of the first Strands of Starlight with Elves awakening in modern day Denver. I won't spoil it much, but it was gorgeous, especially Natil and Sandy Joy's transformations and realizations. This was NOT a depressing book at all. It made the Strands series come full circle at last. The very last scene in the book was heartwarming as well, NOT depressing. Natil finally found peace after FOUR BILLION YEARS. How could you not be happy for her?
This is the last book in the series. Since I can't skip the Rating I gave it a 1 star. I didn't finish this book. The title - Strands of Sunlight - gave me hope of a good story of Elves in the modern world. Gael Baudino is a good writer and she can tell a good story, so I was really disappointed to find this book as depressing, if not more so, than the last one. I struggled through the first 90 pages and gave it up. Maybe if I hadn't read them, one after the other, things might be different, but by this time I was tired of being depressed. That's not why I read. You might want to check out the reviews at other book sites for different opinions.
