Somewhere Beneath Those Waves
Somewhere Beneath Those Waves

kgardiner_89, August 7, 2012

By turns fascinating and spine-tingling, Sarah Monette's writing is incredible. Her sense of language weaves a spell over the reader; I read this book in one sitting because I quite simply couldn't bear to stop reading it. Her characters, as always, are intense, and the stories thought-provoking and in some cases ("The Watcher in the Corner") downright creepy. I loved this collection, and it is one of my favorite books to give to friends as an introduction to Monette's many worlds.

Melusine was amazing! Sarah Monette is a brilliant author, creating stories within the story and characters so believable, I couldn't wait to get into the next book. Melusine was a superb read, and has become one of my favorite books.
