Look at me go, reading 500+pages after I finished a 600+pages! Daughter of the Forest swept me away with its vivid characters, its in-depth plot, it’s breathtaking scope of world-building. I would rank this as highly as Naomi Novik’s “Uprooted”, because it’s just as beautiful, but instead of being just a stand-alone, this is a series.

Daughter of the Forest tells the tale of Sorcha, and while I loved Sorcha and her six older brothers, her father needs to loosen up and not be so hateful. Granted, his wife died, but that doesn’t give him the right to act like a complete and utter a** towards his children, especially the two youngest who looked the most like his beloved wife.

There’s plenty of magic to be had in this book, along with swans, women being awesome, bad guys, an adventure. There’s so much in this book, that I’m glad I own this because this means that I can do a re-read and see if I missed anything the first time around, which I have been known to do with great fantasy epics.

I really want to read more of this series, but sadly that will have to wait until my next venture to the library, or I find a copy of book two on book outlet. I hope there are some available in hardback edition, to complete the series, because this would be one of my favorite series to own, I think.

To conclude, I’m giving this a 5/5 stars as it’s a breathtakingly beautiful fantasy that I know I will remember for some years to come.

Until next time,
