What I love about this book:
You know how the Help, by Kathryn Stockett, is praised as being "pitch perfect" for its setting and time-period? Well, Scarlet's voice is "pitch-perfect" for medieval times (at least, it comes across that way). I was a little nervous at first with Scarlet's slang, but trust me, you're in the hands of a master with this book. I've read dozens of books with medieval settings, but Scarlet's perfect pitch has done the best job of pulling me into the time and setting.
How to Enter to win Scarlet: become a follower of my blog and leave a comment with some way for me to reach you. Ends at midnight on March 28. One random winner will be picked from the comments.
Optional: what's your favorite legend? And what's your favorite twist on a legend? Oh, the possibilities! Take a look at this picture I found on Deviant Art - this twist on the Sleeping Beauty legend made my imagination go into overdrive... now I'm going to have come up with a story about a girl who wakes a sleeping prince with a kiss (after she's defeated the evil witch or queen in some clever way, of course).(Because being clever and loyal and helpful is just as kick-butt as throwing knives or martial art moves).
