Young Circelae is a dreamer. Living with his family in a little village in the world of Alterra, he is happiest with his nose in a book, imagining all the excitement his life could bring. Yet all too soon, the boy gets more excitement than he bargained for. Alexiel, ruler of an enchanted kingdom, sees Circelae in the forest and falls in love with the handsome youth. He asks Circelae’s father for the boy’s hand in marriage. A tempting offer for the poor family. But can Circelae learn to love the mysterious Alexiel, whose face he has never seen? And what about the terrible curse that is rumoured to lie upon the kingdom?
What made the experience of listening to Blood and Silk the most enjoyable?
The most enjoyable about it is the way of Jeffery's writing. His writing style can very easily conjure up a wonderful beautiful atmosphere and environment of the world of Alterra right into our imaginations. As a result it makes the situations and characters strongly engaging that at times it does make it hard to put the book down.
Any additional comments?
All and all this was a wonderful discovery and I do hope that more people will take a look at this book. I strongly recommend it.
