Holding Hannah

Holding Hannah (Masters of the Castle, #1)Holding Hannah by Maren Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was actually a 3.5 read for me. It was a short, sweet, quick read, with a little sadness mixed in for Hannah.

It would have been a solid 4 star, but where it lost that .5 rating was actually twofold. The reader is lead up to a certain point, an expected scene between the two main characters.. then.. nothing. It moves forward without even telling us what happened "while" it was happening. The other thing is, the book felt rushed. The concept for the story was good, but it was just too rushed.

However, i'm giving the author's next book Kaylee's Keeper (Masters of the Castle, #2) a read. So far, couple chapters in, it seems good, we'll see how things go.

  1. I love short stories, but I hate the rushed feeling some of them give me. :) this book sounds interesting and I love the cover!

  2. i'm going to make the next book, Kaylee's Keeper, the BOTM over on the EZ, so you might want to give this one a quick read, although it isn't necessary to read this one in order to read Kaylee's Keeper.

    Would be interested in your take on Holding Hannah :)
