is Ann Hunter’s most complex and imaginative book so far. It tells the story of Prince Sylas, a seventeen-year-old who will do anything to free the girl he loves from the clutches of a witch named Crwys. Fallen
is a companion novel to The Subtle Beauty
I’d strongly recommend reading those other two books first. Sylas is a complicated character who is easy to both love and hate, but the star of the book is definitely Rós, a magic chicken who becomes Sylas’s only friend. Fallen
is intricately plotted, unpredictable, fast-paced, and full of smart dialogue. It has a great message about the powers of love and friendship. Many of the scenes have a surreal quality which I really admired. Overall, this book is a very entertaining read.
