CSFF Blog Tour, Starlighter, Day 3

***Warning: There are (minor) SPOILERS in this post***

It’s the final day of the tour, and I have just a couple things to wrap up.

One thing I failed to mention in my review yesterday is that the persuasiveness of the dragon prince is very well done. I could hear his slimy, syrupy voice in my head (at least, I imagine it to be syrupy) as he tries to convince Koren that it is better for her to be forced to love him than never love him at all. Red flag! That is exactly the opposite of what a loving Creator would (and in our case, does) ask of his subjects, and Koren seems to know this. I’m interested to see how things develop with the prince.

There are a lot of great posts this tour, but I really liked this interview with Bryan Davis by Jill Williamson. This two part review by Fred Warren is also great (part 1 and part 2). And Rebecca Miller has a thoughtful post about betrayal and the abuse of power here.

It was a great tour! I love that even people’s criticisms are given in a respectful manner. Even though this book didn’t quite wow me, I am still looking forward to reading more, and I would definitely recommend it as a fun and wholesome read.

Disclaimer: In conjunction with the CSFF blog tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions expressed are my own.
