A lovely story, retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon
. I read the original story when I was very very small but it stayed in my mind for a long time. I could never forget the image of a girl fighting so hard to get her lover back, crying in the middle of the night, hoping the Prince regain his memory.East
made the attachment between two main characters convincing enough for me, worthy enough for fighting for. But I don't think the use of multiple POVs is necessary. Except for Book 1, the rest of the book is told chiefly from Rose's POV, and I think that's quite enough to interchange between Rose and The Bear. I think Book 1 can also be handled better with just 1 POV from Rose.
The Nordic fantasy world is so strange, so different and so fascinating. I should find other tales to satisfy my hunger.
