Read full description of the books In the Forests of Serre (Mckillip, Patricia a):I read that this book is a retelling of the russian legend "The Firebird". Not being aquainted with that legend, i cannot make comparisons.
The little i can say about this story,(for which i just can't find the proper words) is that the author is a master craft in her genius.
I think i have mentioned this, on another review on some other book by this author, but for me, Mckillip writing is the only kind of poetry that i trully enjoy.
The words are just beautifully chosen, and they fit perfectly like pieces in a puzzle...
All the books that i've read by this author have been exquisite, not only by the stories they tell, but also, by the words that are chosen to do it.
In this one, the author creates a magnificient tapestry of words, dreams, and sadness, interwoven with magical beings and very earthy wishes. In it, we have princes who have lost their hearts,a wizard blinded by his wishes, a princess who's not ready to give up, an evil witch who likes to make broth out of people's marrows, and a firebird of incomparable beauty...and power..
A treat for all of those, who don't mind being held captive for a few hours, in a enthralling tale.
And keeping with the tradition, the cover of this book, is just beautiful, and true to the characters and all the elements in the book. The artist's work is trully amazing. I haven't seen this kind of perfection in many other book covers...
