Mercedes Lackey thru and thru!!

I love all of Mercedes Lackey's books. She's an awesome writer! From a High Tower is book 10 in the Elemental Masters series which if you've been following it you will know is one of her more creative series. It's roughly structured around the story of Rapunzel but has the "Lackey touch" added and swirled thru out it making it a whole different story. As I said at the beginning I love and adore Mercedes Lackey books and I firmly believe if you read a few you will too! Enjoy and happy reading! 😉

Good but Still Not Great

Though the switch to Germany and it's plethora of tales has helped restore the faith in this series I lost when Steadfast came out, there's still something missing. The story is entertaining and the characters are interesting, but the flow is almost too smooth. When the final conflict came it was somewhat predictable, and the only "surprise" at the end was actually rather underwhelming.

Overall, it's worth reading as part of the series. But it's not going to be the book that makes your week, or the one that keeps you awake at night to see how the chapter ends. if you like the series then it's an enjoyable listen to pass the time. Otherwise all that can be said about it is that it's an interesting adaptation of Rapunzel, as well as an interesting look into certain aspects of German culture that aren't often discussed.

Favorite in the Elemental masters series

What did you love best about From a High Tower?

From a High Tower isn't an obvious love story. I very much liked the independent, though somewhat unsure, protagonist. Also the old time wild west traveling show was a great addition.

What other book might you compare From a High Tower to and why?

hard to say, it's Rapunzel meets an old west dime novel

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Storm Born: Dark Swan, but I much preferred this story. Jennifer Van Dyck is a wonderful voice actress either way

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the end scene of Giselle chasing Rosa around in mock anger
