Tamsin by Peter S. Beagle

From the bestselling author of The Last Unicorn comes an engaging story of a friendship that transcends time”(Library Journal)...

Arriving in the magnificent countryside of Dorset, England, to live with her mother and new stepfather, the young and very American Jenny Gluckstein has little interest in her historic surroundings, including that of the 700 acre Stourhead Farm her stepfather is restoring. Then she meets Tamsin, a kindred spirit that has haunted the lonely estate for 300 years, trapped by a hidden trauma she can't remember, and by a powerful evil even the spirits of night cannot name. To help her, Jenny must delve deeper into the dark world than any human has in centuries, and face a danger that will change her life forever.

About the Author

Peter S. Beagle was born in 1939 and raised in the Bronx, just a few blocks from Woodlawn Cemetery, the inspiration for his first novel, A Fine and Private Place. Today, thanks to classic works such as The Last Unicorn, Tamsin, and The Innkeeper’s Song, he is acknowledged as America’s greatest living fantasy author; and his dazzling abilities with language, characters, and magical storytelling have earned him many millions of fans around the world.
In addition to stories and novels Beagle has written numerous teleplays and screenplays, including the animated versions of The Lord of the Rings and The Last Unicorn, plus the fan-favorite “Sarek” episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. His nonfiction book I See By My Outfit, which recounts a 1963 journey across America on motor scooter, is considered a classic of American travel writing; and he is also a gifted poet, lyricist, and singer/songwriter.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
