One Wish; Michelle Harrison

One Wish (Thirteen Treasures, #0.5)One Wish by Michelle Harrison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As a semi-prequel goes (although, let's be honest, calling something .5 in a series is just weird) this isn't bad. Tanya, Ratty and Turpin are fun and well-drawn, but the adults are less so - problematic with the role Bob plays in this book. There's also some unevenness in the way the various types of fey and locations are depicted: some are described well and given personality, while others are given a few quick strokes and we're expected to guess the rest. I did love the Wishing Tree and wish we'd spent a little more time in the castle.
